Christmas in July '09

Finally, Christmas in July. It was a great success and I am very thankful for the attendance and patience of our friends. We had nine in attendance and then JoAnn and I and our girls. For our first go was perfect. Lots and lots of incredible food to eat. Vickie made some homemade salsa that was a frequent stop for me.
Only a few things that we will change next year.
These are our family and friends that attended.
Here are a few of the projects that we made. My camera ran out of juice so I will have to share more photos of the projects at a later date.
This is a gift bag with four gift tags that can be used for Christmas presents...everyone needs these. I will show another picture later of all the tags...sorry. To and From is on the back of tags. We used that Big Shot Top Notes die to make the topper and Christmas Punch, a hostess level 2 stamps set for the tags.
This card featured vellum. It was fun and easy. I wish I had the original card that JoAnn made because it looks a lot better than this one.
These cards feature "Doodle This" a retired stamp set embossed in Gold. I showed two pictures to show how we fanned the flower to look like a poinsettia.
This card features the "Christmas Swirl" stamp set. We also made a 12 x 12 scrapbook page featuring the same idea as the card that I will have to show at a later date.

A country Christmas card made with the 1 1/4 circle punch and small tag punch.
Super easy card.

3D card using the Crabby Claws stamp set. This card was a lot of fun and a fan favorite.
This card featured the Circle Scissor Plus cutter and the technique "masking". It was fun to make as well.
These tile coaster were easy and a great Christmas gift. We used the
Holy Triptych stamp set.
If you have any questions or would like to make any of these gift items or cards, let me know and I would love to assist you.
Thank you so much ladies for attending and for making this a great experience for JoAnn and I. We are very thankful and grateful to have you as our friends and customers.
