I held a Christmas in July event earlier this month, both in person and “to go.” The PDF tutorial for all of the projects made for this event are available for purchase -scroll down to the bottom of this post if you’d like the tutorial!
These projects today are not projects from that event, but some of the additional projects that I had on display.
Today’s projects were made during my Facebook Live Take-Two on Thursday. Both feature the Tidings of Trimmings bundle in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. Also featured is the Tidings of Christmas 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper that is currently part of our Designer Series Paper Sale! CLICK TO SHOP THE SALE IN MY ONLINE STORE
This first project is a great little gift for anyone – or would be a darling favor for a holiday event! It contains a cookies, of course! The base of this project is one of the 3 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ Acetate Card Boxes – they come in a pack of 10. You can use them to package a cute set of 3 x 3 cards and matching envelopes – another great gift idea – but I love the cookie idea – who doesn’t like cookies!! A little bit of stamping, and die cutting and you have an adorable gift!
I wrapped some dsp around the box and secured it to the bottom of the box. I kept the opening of the box on the right hand side – that way, when someone is ready to eat their cookie, all they need to do is untie the box – and the box decoration will remain intact!
I used our Foam Adhesive Sheets for the “Cookies” die – they make the entire word a dimensional – and I love the look!

My next project was a super simple wrapped gift card. When I say super simple, I mean it! Just take a small strip of DSP and wrap it around the gift card, attaching to the back of the gift card. Crop out a small tag from the Tailored Tag die set (a favorite of mine!), stamp with Evening Evergreen Ink and add a Soft Succulent star and tag hole re-enforcement. Embellish with a Holiday Rhinestone and then attach to the bow with some White Baker’s Twine. Done! And such a great way to “dress up” a simple gift card!
My Christmas in July was a super fun day of stamping and crafting! This class consisted of “giftables” – projects you can gift to friends and family (or keep for yourself!) for the upcoming holidays, as well as four cards. My Christmas in July event featured the Tidings & Trimmings Bundle from our 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. I offered the class both in person and “to go”. I’ve had some requests for a PDF-only option – and am happy to offer it starting today!
