Christmas in July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Christmas in July Blog Hop – a collection of ideas from Stampin’ UP! demonstrators all over the globe showcasing  the brand new and fantastic ‘Carols of Christmas’ bundle which has a stamp set with the same name and the ‘Card Front Builder Thinlets Dies.You will have come from Betty Bickford ~ I just hope my card is up to the same standard.

Each of us has been asked to design a card using this bundle and other products from the current 2017 – 2018 annual catalog.

When I saw the bundle for the first time it literally screamed GOLD heat embossing to me so that was my starting point, I chose very traditional colors of Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla to compliment the gold.

Advent Calendar – Christmas Eve!

The final day for our calendar, it is hard to believe it is Christmas Eve,  I am going to spend the day listening to Christmas music on BBC Radio 2 and getting ready for tomorrow.  I sometimes think I enjoy Christmas Eve more than Christmas Day itself – there is more of a sense of magic and anticipation!

Back in October, when  my friend, Elly, from the UK and I designed the  advent calendar using a 24 cup mini muffin pan, we had a lot of fun deciding which square would go on each day but I knew we would have this square for today!

I hope you have enjoyed the countdown journey – I certainly enjoyed sharing with you ~ leave me a comment I would love to hear from you.

You will want to open each post, as there will be a little treat behind each one!  Some days it might be some virtual ‘candy’ or sweeties as we call them in the UK, other times it might be a card, 3D project or a video!

Advent Calendar – Countdown to Christmas ~ Day 23

When Elly, my friend from the UK, and I designed the advent calendar back in early October I wanted day 23 to show the warmth and coziness of creating a new home.   December 23rd is a special day in our family as it is our youngest son’s wedding anniversary – yep 2 days before Christmas – it was a magical day full of love and sparkle and Father Christmas (as he is known in the UK)  came to hand out the wedding favors!
