Christmas in July

This week at Cooking with Cricut our challenge was to create a Christmas in July project using paper or cardstock from our scraps pile.  

It's really HARD to think of Christmas when it has been in the 100's here in Kansas City!

For this challenge I pulled out some "Christmas" colors from my 
scraps pile (that is overflowing)

 and created a matching card and tag set using a cartridge 
that I haven't used in a while, Joys of the Season. 

 It's hard to photograph, but the white wrapper has a glimmery sheen to it.

 with an eyelet and some twine added to the tag, it's ready to use! 

Now it's your turn.....head on over to Cooking with Cricut and show us what you create by linking up your Christmas in July project using cardstock or paper from your scraps pile. 

Thanks for stopping by! 


  1. These are adorable, Hattie! And I totally understand about having a hard time getting inspired with it being SO hot outside!!

  2. Great card and tag you have here. I love that sentiment and the use of the twine!

  3. These are both so pretty. I especially love the red and white. Looks so clean and crisp. Love how you wrapped the twine too.


Thank you for taking the time to stop and comment! I love reading each and every comment!
