Celebrating Christmas in July with Jar Toppers, Nativity and and Gingerbreads.

Santa Mason Jar Topper 
"There is always an abundance of glass jars around Christmas, so I stocked up on some for future crafts. When I saw the template for the Santa Paver at My Scrap Chick, I just knew it would make a fabulous topper, when added to the straw."

"Since I didn't have any glass or plastic Christmas balls that open, and I live 100 miles from a decent craft store, I made do with what I had. Hubby took a Dremil tool and cut the plastic ornaments I had in half." ~ Shirley

Christmas in July at My Scrap Chick


Get a jump start on Christmas with this week's
inspiration from the Design Team.
 
Working on winter projects during hot July days will likely drop that thermostat down a degree or two. 
 
Plus come December you'll be happy all over again when you pull out these Christmas projects and know you are a already few steps ahead of the season.

The Pink Snowmen (or they may be Snowladies!)
You will see lots of snowmen during the cold months and especially around Christmas. But this cheerful bright bunch of 3 Snowmen was seen in January for a retirement a card. Perfect. Check out more photos on

Sue's Stamping Stuff blog.
Thanks Sue!
 
 
3D Shaker Snow Globe Card
Snow Globes are one of those Christmas traditions that strike a warm fuzzy feeling for many of us. Most of us can still remember how enchanting is was as a child to come across these glass enclosures of miniature worlds, giving it a shake then watching as the snow swirled and fell. These cards bring back those kind of memories.

Sarah captured it perfectly and has the info on how to turn the flat Snow Globe Card into her 3D shaker card.

Find the details for this at Sarah's Paper Tree blog.
Thank you Sarah!

All Aboard the Christmas Train
Toot-toot - jump on board for a fun-filled adventure filled with candy canes and hot chocolate! Sarah added some really fun touches to her 3D Paper Train Set including the special smoke stack.

Thank you Sarah!

Breaking News "Santa has been Framed!!"

 
We were just getting things ready at MyScrapChick for our Christmas in July event when we heard that Santa has been framed! Here's what we know so far....
 
 
Alma from our design team is the one who framed this jolly old elf.  She used the Santa from the Santa Claus 5 Piece Set and enlarged him to fit her beautiful square frame.  Alma's creative work can found at My Cricut Side
 
 
If you loved Santa being framed you will really love how Nicole captured his mugshot on her Christmas gift bags...
 
And apparently Santa was not alone. He came with some trusted friends, Frosty and Penguin.
 
 
Nicole from the Design Team has the full line of gift bags on her blog at TeachDanz.blogspot .
She shares her great tips for making all 3.


 
We'll be sharing more projects from the Design Team this week during our Christmas in July event so hope you stay tuned. Sign up for our newsletter for more creative inspiration, sale news and of course our regular Freebie Friday.
