Christmas in July - Day 4


Welcome to our final day of the Christmas Cheer release party!!!

We hope that you've been inspired by these festive creations from our Design Team and that you've found a ton of ideas that you can use for your holiday crafts this year.

Let's take a look at some more gorgeous projects from our DT!

*******

Rebecca Keppel

I loved working with Christmas Cheer and found it very easy to use for both holiday layouts and decor. There is a perfect mix of basic patterns and adorable patterns. The large die cuts always make great titles and the smaller stickers are perfect for embellishing ornaments or other home decor items. The i Rock adds the perfect touch of dimension and bling.

Holiday Ornaments

"Merry Christmas"


Adora Concepcion

I was so excited to do some "Christmas in July" projects! The collection is just gorgeous and I love it!!!

"Christmas Cookies"

For my first project I created this simple 'yummy' layout! Sweets are a big part of every homes' Christmas tradition & it would not be the same without it right?! :). I thought the paper and the traditional Christmas colors were so fitting for this layout ... and so festive.

I also added a little bit of crystal randomly on the page for sparkle.

Paper Cone Ornaments

For my second project, I created these little ornaments. It's super easy and fun to make.

As a paper crafter, I collect all kind of templates that will work on paper projects.


Trace shape onto the paper, cut out the shape, with bone folder, score paper on fold lines, fold into shape then close along one side using hot glue gun. Decorate with trim and cut out images from the paper.



Rhonda Van Ginkel

My layout was inspired the Christmas Eve pictures that I attempted to get of our boys in their "Christmas Pajamas" last year. They were so excited about Santa and their Superman pajamas they could not sit still.

I decided to do a couple of photo collages to help tell the story. I pieced my title together to become "Be Jolly, Merry & Bright" using a sticker stacker and one of the die cuts. I added a holly flourish die cut using a Cheery Lynn Designs die, then some finishing touches of bling with my i-Rock of course!


The coordinating elements in this line really make creating a beautiful page so effortless!

Spinner Card
The card that I created was cut using my Silhouette. I loved the idea of the spinner with "Naughty" or "Nice" as choices, so I used my Dymo labeler to create them.

The i-Top 2.0 was the perfect anchor for my wheel. The bow on top was cut apart from the wreath die cut.

I hope you've enjoyed my projects!
