Christmas in July!

This year is flying by! It's July already and it's probably a good time to start thinking about your Christmas cards and projects. The INKlings team has and we thought that this month was the perfect time to host a Christmas in July blog hop. You'll find lots of great ideas provided by some of the team members’ fantastic blogs. 
 Want to win some Blog Candy? Simply leave a comment on each blog and then email Christie Wallace [Christies_stamps@yahoo.com.au]  and let her know you’ve done so and you’ll be in the running for a fantastic prize of handmade cards plus other goodies. 
Sorry Blog Candy prize not available to SU! demonstrators but you're more than welcome to leave us a comment!

I chose pixie pink and green galore for my theme and created a card, an ornament and a lolly bag.  EDITED TO ADD: The inspiration for the colour combo came from an old issue of Better Homes and Gardens :)

 
 
 
 Supplies used: Stampin Up!
card stock: Pixie Pink and Green Galore
stamp sets: Basic Phrases, Fun & Fast Notes, Short and Sweet
ink: Pixie Pink, Green Galore
punches: Scallop Circle, Star, Circle, 1/16 handheld
other: white gel pen, crimper

Well that’s all from me.  Next stop on the INKlings’ Team Blog Hop is Rachel Jackson.
Have fun and don't forget to leave a comment on each blog to win some great Blog Candy.
Happy crafting!

Thanks for stopping by, everyone :)

Dinky Di said...

Sometimes it pays to choose colours that shouldn't go together, because they make your project 'pop'. Love it.
