Hopping Around the World Blog Hop July - Christmas in July!

Once again, so very happy to be hopping with this lovely group of stampers for the month of July as we start planning for the holidays this month with Christmas in July.  Each of our hoppers will make a lovely project related to Christmas - so you can get some inspiration and be ahead of the game this year!

All it took for me was to get my new August-December Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog - for me to smile!!!  It is awesome - so much new product, but also lots of returning items.  So I pulled out some of my old products and have been playing!  Here are two ideas - the first uses products from the returning Most Wonderful Time product medley.  It is cute and clean and easily reproducible.  I just love the little stars for the trees - and non-traditional gray packages. 
Then for my second card I used the returning Christmas Gleaming Variety Bundle - it was absolutely a favorite last year and I'm so glad it returned.  I especially loved the Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP - and was thrilled they brought it back - it's even part of the bundle this time.  I paired it with some copper foil to match the copper elements in the paper for this beauty -
I really wanted to use returning products, as many of you may have these on hand from last year and can start creating NOW!  I hope this makes you want to get out your holiday stamps and start creating.   Now be sure to "hop" on through the rest of the blogs on the list below to see all their great takes on this same sketch.  Before moving on, be sure to leave a comment at the bottom of this post - they make my day!

Your cards are great. I’m so glad they brought back some favourites from last year.

So festive and two completely different cards. I love the traditional feel of the first and the foiling accents on the second. Thanks for sharing x
