Brrrrr! It's Time for the Christmas in July Blog Hop, Day 1

Welcome crafty friends.
I am super excited that you are here today for the Christmas in July Blog Hop. Yeah!

Here is a note from our blog hop hostess:
Thank you for joining me to help me celebrate our Christ's birthday. I love all things about Christmas and start planning Christmas as soon as the Christmas tree comes down. So I decided to host this fun celebration with some of the most talented crafters that I know.
I do have a few rules for this hop, in support of each crafter and the time they have put into their work, to be eligible for the "Grand Prize" you MUST visit each blog and leave a comment for each day of the blog hop and also become a follower at "Scrapping With Lisa" and my facebook page: Please let me know if you don't do facebook and I won't count that against you for the grand prize. Now for the grand prize, I bet you are wondering what it could be. It will be a big grab bag full of scrapbooking supplies related to Christmas.
Have fun and enjoy all the wonderful projects created by some wonderful talented friends.

If you have started on this blog you’re on the right track. If not, and just found this hop, you can go back to the beginning (HERE) and hop along with us. You definitely do not want to miss any of the wonderful projects (or goodies).

This hop runs from July 15-17th, so you have plenty of time to make it all the way through the hop. Check out each blog and see what each blog has to offer for BLOG CANDY! Please come back tomorrow to see what new projects have been created. After all, it's Christmas in July and who doesn't like Christmas.

Now for my project: Many of you may know that I am 5th grade teacher and I love to make cards for people at school. This was the perfect time to begin my holiday cards for my new class. I do not know how many students I am going to have this year, but I am glad I am able to get started on them now.

 I used the Gingerbread cartridge to cut the gingerbread man and the Doodlecharms cartridge to cut the reindeer.
 This background paper is Alpine Socks by k*i memories.
These snowflakes were cut from the Potpourri Basket cartridge. The sentiment was cut from Jolly Holidays.

I am looking forward to tomorrow since I get to post another Christmas in July project. How exciting! Since this is all about Christmas...I have a gift for one lucky person.
Please leave a comment each day for a greater chance of winning. The winner will be announced Monday evening, July 18th.

Thank you again for joining all of us for the Christmas in July Blog Hop.
Until tomorrow,

  30. These cards are so cute! Not my usual style but I really like them, especially the colors. Every once in a while, I like to break out of the mold and use non-traditional colors and elements to make my Christmas cards interesting and different. Thanks for the inspiration!
