Christmas in July - Stampin' Up! Lots of Joy for SB111
July 01, 2015
Today is the first of July, and a fun time to celebrate Christmas in July in Australia where we can enjoy all the winter Christmas treats and experiences that are enjoyed in the Northern Hemisphere at Christmas. I'm celebrating with my first blog Christmas card for the year for the Stamping and Blogging Design Team.
Lots of Joy is one of the new Christmas sets in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I love it because:
- The plaid reminds me of Scotland where my Grandparents are from.
- It has three great greetings
- Images coordinate with the 1.5" circle, 1" square and Christmas tree punches (see links at end of post)
- It has a lot of great coordinating colours: Real Red, Mossy Meadow, Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler.
- It's a great way to use the long lines of rhinestones in the adhesive rhinestone packs! Line them up with the stripes and you have adhesive tinsel :)
Here's the sketch we had to work with this week. I rotated it 90 degrees anticlockwise for my card.
Now it's time to visit the lovely peeps in the Stampin' and Blogging Design Team and see what they have done with this week's sketch. Then don't forget to have a go at the sketch yourself!
