JustRite Christmas in July Blog Hop

Greetings friends!!  All that work with ornaments earlier this week sure got me all in the mood for Christmas!   Sigh, walking through Hobby Lobby just makes me smile from ear to ear ’cause they already have the Christmas stuff out.  I know, I know – why oh why do stores start putting holiday stuff out in June and July?  Well, because they see me coming!!  It used to get me frustrated but I’m amazed that having the stuff there gets me in the giving mood and is an ever present reminder of the birth of Jesus.  Last year we unexpectedly went out of town in November and didn’t return home until January, missing Christmas at home – although the spirit of Christmas was certainly with us.  I’m savoring plans for our giving this year.  I’m sure I’ll start early, I have plenty of supplies that I didn’t use last year, ahem…you’ve been warned – it’ll be knee deep here before you know it.  Which leads me into what I’m showing today . . .

We’re having a JustRite Christmas in July and we’re celebrating with a Blog Hop!!  JustRite Stampers has released new Christmas sets HERE and I snagged one to use in my project today from the Holiday Cheer Borders and Centers Set.  These little centers fit perfectly in the new Spellbinders 2010 Snowflake Pendants so I wanted to show how well they fit.  For my card I used some frilly Anna Griffin scrapbook paper that I cut down and mitered so that I could have a border.  Then I cut my Spellbinders™ Snowflake Pendant as a frame and popped up my gold snowflake along with a layer from Spellbinders™ Snowflake Wonder , two layers from Spellbinders™ Standard Circles LG.  As a gift to go along with the card, an ornament of course.  It can be flattened and included in the envelope with instructions to the recipient to fold it out and hang it on the tree!!   The ornament is made differently from the one I made HERE.  This one is simply four snowflake pendants (with a circle frame cut from the center)  folded in the center and glued together – how easy is that?!

Here is the order for the Blog Hop, so be sure to jump around to each of the designers to see more Christmas in July – we’ll have you in the mood too – I promise ;-)

    Oh my, these projects are so gorgeous, Becca!! I, for one, love to see Christmas cards and gifts now. This is the time of year I start to plan my Christmas cards and build a prototype. Hopefully, I’ll start making them in August… or September ;) Thanks for sharing all your beautiful creations.ReplyCancel

  • MarcieJuly 17, 2010 - 10:33 am

    Beautifully done. Just what I needed to get jump started on the holidays which will be here before we know it. It’s hard to think about Christmas when we are having a heat wave in San Diego, CA., but you really do know how to get me in the mood to start thinking about the holidays. Thanks.

  • LenoriaJuly 17, 2010 - 10:47 am

  • lizJuly 17, 2010 - 11:33 am

    love your cards , It made me start making winter cards last night, I usually start in Sept. after our big stamp show. I make 300 cards for the childrens hospital each year along with the crards for our homebound from church and then the family cards so I usually make about about 100 of each design with a total of about 500 I love the new Just Rite snowman for the kids and the snowflakes for the adults, ( adding on the cancer center this year as my mom passed away last month.)
    Love all that you do……ReplyCancel

  • Sallyann MettlerJuly 17, 2010 - 11:44 am

    I love the card.
    Could you please tell me the name or the paper pack name for the white lacey paper around the snowflake. I think you said anna griffin but I can not find it anywhere.
    Thanks for any help you can give me.
    I love the delicate look.

    This card is gorgeous. I love how you incorporated the snowflake . However, I can’t figure out how you cut the “Snowflake Pendant as a frame” ??? I pulled up a screen shot of it and Snowflake Wonder and compared them to your card and I am still puzzled. Care to enlighten me :)ReplyCancel

  • JenJuly 17, 2010 - 5:56 pm

  • Martha NicholsonJuly 18, 2010 - 12:45 am

    Becca, This design are so beautiful. I got so excited about these designs, that my spirits dropped when I found out I couldn’t get the dies until August. The snow flake and the Heirloom Ornament dies are my favorite of all the new ones coming out in August. The operator that I talked to at Spellbinders Headquaters told me that all of these dies will be available August 1st. Believe me when I tell you that there is a posted note above my computer with the item numbers and the number to call Spellbinders with my order. Keep those wonderful designs coming.ReplyCancel

  • lois skiathitisJuly 18, 2010 - 5:18 am
