Christmas in July

Christmas in July? fun fold Christmas HO! HO! HO!w-1 It is hard to think of a holiday that is 5 months away.  It is in the 3 digits here in Southern Oregon and we have seen unusual weather patterns. Just this week we had a severe thunderstorm that caused many downed power lines, tree limbs snapping, and flooding. Important ? Yes! Don’t kid yourself as I am focusing on my Christmas in July Class. Now that is important! w fun fold welcome Christmas into your heart-1Here are 2 examples of my card designs for this class. I will also re-introduce the envelope liners so that each envelope  will have a matching liner to house a finished card. Two other demonstrators will also introduce cards to the class. I have come up with  this easy card.

Stamp Set: Choice of many provided, Festival of Trees   (9135059) PG71

Cardstock: Whisper White – 100730 or Shimmery White 100730 pg 148, Cherry Cobler 119685, Christmas DSP 138450P 143, Current DSP Paper. Silver Foil Sheets 132178 Pg 148

 Classic Ink Pads: Cherry Cobler 126966, pg. 140 Always Artichoke 126972 pg. 140,

 Framelits and Punches: Itty Bitty Accents Punch 133787 pg166, Tree Punch 135859 pg. 167

 Miscellaneous Dimensionals 104430, Pg 156

 Instructions:

  • Cut and score white cardstock at 6 X 5 ¼ scored at 1 ½” on the 6” side. White cardstock 5 ¼” X 1”, DSP 5” x ¾”, 5 x 1 ¼”
  • Punch 3 trees from coordinating cardstock
  • Layer and place sentiment on your card.

 Assembly: Hint the trees are attached on the bottom of the top fold with glue dots and the trunk of each tree, is attached to the bottom layer by glue dots. An alternate idea is to use the Wonderful Wreath and fasten it the same way as the trees. To add the 3-D Joy, cut 3 or 4 Joy words using the thinlits from Real Red cardstock and using the same thinlit, cut out from Gold Foil Paper and mount on top of the other red “Joy” words. I use Tombo glue or a glue pen to do this.

Christmas in July! Another Crafting Opportunity in Central Point!

Since our regular Party at the Club will not be happening at our club the month of July,

4christmas in July samplesI have been invited to share a similar experience with Linda Miller and Jean Fitch for a Christmas in July Class.

One of these designs will be mine. Which one do you prefer?

While the class is run similarly to ours, there are a few options for me to tell you about. Registration is $15.00.  Each demonstrator has a project Instead of prizes raffled off, there is a card drawing. (stampers can donate a SU materials made  card to the collection and we give raffle tickets. We then draw a winner for all the cards). If this is something you would like to participate in, you are more than welcome to participate or not, the choice is yours.

The Demonstrators do not offer lunch , but instead have a break at noon and share a pot luck lunch. There are 2 refrigerators and an oven and microwave if needed. We supply Iced tea/water and candy on the table. We eat in the library and visit. If you would like to bring Pot Luck you can or you can just bring a lunch of your own. It is up to you. Either way, they break for lunch.

The date of this class is July 11th and RSVP’S will be accepted through June 30th. Seats will fill up quickly so it is in your best interest if you are planning to attend, RSVP to me at gigidesigns007@yahoo.com as soon as you are sure you would like to take part.

The location of this event is the First Presbyterian Church of Central Point fellowship hall Located at 456 W. Pine (it is a flag lot. Sign is on W. Pine but can’t see the church until you turn into the driveway and go around the corner).

I hope you will be able to attend.
