Christmas in July

This week The Angel Company has been celebrating Christmas in July and it's been a lot of fun to see what the DT has come up - boy are they creative! Check out all the fun ideas here on Savvy Projects blog.

I followed that theme with one of my projects from yesterday's Open House - thanks again to everyone who stopped by! I used 3 different, non Christmasy stamp sets to make up this cute little gift pouch. How easy it would be to change the colors though and make it the perfect gift wrap for any occasion. (Size: this is just one half of regular cardstock cut the long ways)

Materials: All stamps and papers from The Angel Company
Stamps: Fabulous Frames, Running Stitches, Damask Backgrounder
Paper: Kraft, Olive and Scarlet Cardstock (you've really got to feel this paper to appreciate it!)

This second mini card is stamp lifted from Mischelle's blog when she used Hope Perches for her Retiform card. I fell in love with the card and used her focal point for my mini card version (and in real life, my greens do match!! sigh...

Juliet changed it up once more and created these two lovely mini cards...I had to snap a picture before she left with them!
