Christmas in July 2024: Project One

Oh my, I created this post last week and forgot to post it!  So instead of Christmas in July project two, I’m sharing Christmas in July 2024 Project One.  Project two will post next Tuesday with project three on the schedule for next Friday.

It’s Christmas in July!  Project one is a holiday card featuring the new Filled with Cheer Stamp Set.  The stamp set is a new Online Exclusive product from Stampin’ Up!  The snowman, sled and Christmas tree are perfect for sending holiday greetings.  These images along with images of gifts and poinsettias are perfect to color using a variety of coloring tools.  Do you notice the background paper?  It’s another new Online Exclusive so visit my store to see all the recently released products.  (note, Online Exclusives are not in a catalog but as the name implies only “online”)

Simply Zinnia Fun Fold Card

Wow! Can you believe we’re approaching the end of May?  It’s been an interesting month here in Georgia as for the past month, we have been serenaded by the cicadas.  The 13 year and 17 year made a joint appearance.  In addition to their loud noise, it wasn’t unusual to have one or more fly into you when outdoors. Fortunately this week it has quieted, so it seems the mating ritual has ended in Georgia.  Were the cicadas present where you live?  Now onto details about today’s card…

Today’s project features products from the Flowering Zinnia Suite Collection which includes the Simply Zinnia Bundle.  The Flowering Zinnia Designer Series Paper and the 3D Zinnia Embossing Folder.  These products are Online Exclusives meaning the products are available to view in the online Stampin’ Up! store and not in a catalog.  For the May card classes (in person and kits to go classes), all Online Exclusive bundles were used.

This fun fold card design is unique.  It looks like a regular card but when opened, there’s a side panel.  And of course, the side panel allows for more embellishing!

Sending Cheer Christmas Gift Tags

It’s two weeks until Christmas…are your gifts wrapped yet? I still have gifts to wrap but am ready with gift tags for the presents. In last month’s card class, we made Christmas gift tags using the Sending Cheer Bundle from the Sept-Dec. Mini Catalog from Stampin’ Up! Combining the Sending Cheer Christmas gift tags with the Tailor Made Tags Dies makes creating quick and easy. Need multiples?…It’s a breeze to do! To add “a little extra” use the Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder but you can substitute with any embossing folder.

If you haven’t purchased the Sending Cheer Bundle – act fast! It’s on the Last Chance retiring list. It may not arrive in time to use for this Christmas but you’ll have it for next year. Plus there are elements appropriate for year round use. In addition, the Christmas Tidings Embossing Folder is also retiring and is currently discounted too.

Three Christmas gift tags using the Sending Cheer Bundle and the Tailor Made Tag Dies from Stampin' Up!
Cut Dimensions:
  •  Basic White Cardstock: (3) 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ for tag die cuts; 2″ x 4″ (3) for stamping

Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper

The Fresh As A Daisy Designer Series Paper is a beautiful collection of papers that will brighten your projects. Like many Stampin’ Up!
