TAC Christmas in July Blog Hop

Welcome to another Blog Hop featuring The Angel Company products. The blog hops are sponsored by Paper Wings and showcase different blogs from fellow Angels. Our theme this month is CHRISTMAS IN JULY!! Today just happened to be my CHRISTMAS IN JULY class where I showcased 4 projects using The Angel Company (TAC) papers & stamps.


First up we did a Christmas Card using Glossy Accents and Copic markers. All the stamps are from a new stamp set called Jingle Jolly. Last week I went to Heather & Lori's Angel Inspired function where we made this card. I had a BLAST and the projects were AWESOME!!!


Next, we did this Treat Tube using our Reece SWIC papers. I found this idea on Beate Johns Blog. The tube is a toilet paper roll...it's a cute way to give someone some chocolates or a little gift tucked inside. The sentiment is from the Thinking of You stamp set - LOVE this set...so many wonderful sentiments. It seems to be the one set I always grab :)

Our next card is actually a gift card holder. This idea came from another TAC event that I was unable to attend. I bought the project CD for all the wonderful ideas though. The only color on the card is from the Christmas Red Stickles that I used.

Love using the Victorian Elements to make my own background...so easy and it's got such an elegant feel to it! The ornaments are from the Joyful Ornaments set and that awesome sentiment is from a new hostess set, Sophisticated Sentiments.

The last project was a treat box (or a peek-a-boo box on SCS).
The greeting is a stamp from the Sweet Goodies set and I punched it out using my Mega Scalloped Square Punch. Can't get any easier than that!! Here's what the inside of the box looks like:
It's such a cute little box and it will hold 3 Ghirardelli Chocolates. I made mine using the Penelope SWIC papers and cardstock.

Well there you have it - hope you like my projects! Have you started creating any of your holiday cards yet? You know next week is August, then back to school and before you know it Christmas will be here. Geez, guess I better start doing some Christmas shopping...for myself, lol!

Now, hop on over to these other blogs to see what fabulous CHRISTMAS IN JULY projects they've created.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Everything I used is available through The Angel Company.. to order visit my online shopping site or feel free to email me.
