Christmas in July - Day 1


Ho! Ho! Ho!!!

It's time to put on the holiday tunes, bake some gingerbread cookies and sit by the crackling fire!

That's right! We're celebrating Christmas in July this week and we'd love for you to join us!!
We are so excited to share with you the new Christmas Cheer collection.

The Design Team have been working very hard on their creations and we can't wait to share them with you.
So let's get started!

*******

Shellye McDaniel

Altered Frame: "Be Jolly"
I purchased an inexpensive baroque frame, removed the glass and added my own altered photo using Christmas Cheer! I have a special place in my kitchen where I hang a little something for each holiday or season...this will fit there perfectly.

The large die-cuts are wonderful for projects like this one; they're a piece of art-work in themselves. I stamped the snowflakes, and then cut them out before adding them to the art.

I also added a few red Glam Rocks with the I Rock Tool...just right for holly berries!

Of course, a project wouldn't be complete with a nice big bow on top! I used the I-Magi-Cut to quickly cut and seal the ends of the ribbon.

"Ho, Ho, Ho"
I wanted to showcase several of the different patterns on this layout, so I used various lengths
of strips in forming my photo mat.

You will notice that one strip goes completely from the top to bottom of the page and has been machine-stitched; I made this my vertical focal point and accentuated it with the placement of the tree die-cut. I cut down one of the scrolled journal Sticker Stackers and tucked it behind the top photo. After adding a couple of I Top Brads, the layout was complete!


Abby Laubenstein

Christmas is my favorite holiday so Christmas Cheer topped my wishlist! I absolutely love all the little cheerful characters and images, as well as the tradition color scheme. I created a fun holiday layout which includes many different patterns, i-top brads and lots of i-rock bling :)

"Merry Christmas"

I also used the i-rock on a holiday card in addition to the Snag 'em stamps. Such a cute stamp collection in this new line!

"Holiday Cheer"

When using my i-rock on projects, I have a hard time picking up the tiny hot rocks with my fingertips. Imaginisce's LED lighted tweezers have become my new best friend! They're so very helpful, easy to hold and the LED light is a big bonus.



Guiseppa Gubler

When I saw the new Christmas Cheer Collection by Imaginisce...my heart skipped a beat. I love the gorgeous papers and fun die cuts.
This collection is classic and will work for any Christmas project. I decided to do a couple of my favorites...a layout and a card, but I am sure there are many more fun projects to come using this Christmasy collection.

"Christmas Cheer"

"Merry Christmas"


Ro Philippsen

The Christmas Imaginisce Collection is one of the beautiful I've ever had the pleasure to have in my hands. The colors are beautiful and classic, just the way I like, and the prints are amazing!


Door Hanger
I loved creating this door hanger, rich in detail and can not wait to arrive in December to use it on my Christmas decorations.




This year I will make many cards with this beautiful collection!

"Joy"
