Welcome to the OSAT Christmas in July Blog Hop.  It’s never too early to get started on Christmas…right! Reds, greens, and Christmas images to inspire you before the Christmas rush.

Are you starting the blog hop here with me or have you just come from Ginger Pelfrey’s Blog?  Either way make sure you visit everyone, have fun, and leave some love in the way of comments.  There’s a blog lineup at the bottom of the page just in case you get off track.  Now go have fun!

  • I was happy our theme this month gave me an excuse to order the New Santa’s Gifts Stamp Set with all it’s cute images to color.  Makes me feel like a kid again.
  • I used Water Color Paper, Stampin’ Write Markers and an Aqua Pen to color in the images I stamped with Stazon Ink!
  • You can already purchase New Christmas patterned paper…Merry Moments Designer Paper.  Yes even before the Holiday catalog comes out.
  • I wanted a little contrast from all the red and decided to go with the polka dot crumb cake paper found in the New Neutral Designer Series Paper Stack.  I love polka dots!

  • My 3D project is a cute polka dot gift bag made with the…yes I’m going to say the word again “New” Gift Bag Punch Board.  Lovin’ all the new products!
  • The Gift Bag Punch Board makes bags in lots of sizes.  This one is the large width bag and I decided to make it about 5″ high.  You can chose to punch holes around the top for ribbon like I did here or just leave it plain.
  • The Deco Labels Collection Framelits were used in both projects and provided an interesting shape for the images
  • Below is a video on how to use the Gift Bag Punch Board and a list of supplies with links to my online store.
The next stop on the hop is Marisa Gunn.  Thanks for visiting and I hope you stop back real soon!
