Christmas in July!

In case you missed it last week, we announced our much anticipated Christmas Collection, "Festive," which is set to be hitting stores now (and also making it's debut at the CHA Summer Show!) 

While we are away at CHA, we wanted to share with you what our amazing design team has been up to for the past couple of months. We are so lucky to have such an amazingly talented team! Though it IS only July, our team took a challenge and ran with it (and did a spectacular job as well!). We hope to get you excited for the months to come! Let your holiday season start a little early this year! 

First, we have quite a few projects to share from Loes de Groot...

Christmas isn't as "Festive" without a few handmade ornaments, right?


Loes also made this beautiful banner complete with Christmas tags!

 Christmas isn't complete without a layout to document the season!


I only have a few projects... while Loes was over in the Netherlands cranking out amazing projects, I was possibly twiddling my thumbs... or maybe I just wasn't scrapping fast enough! 


I wanted to make a flower bouquet similar to one that I had made for CHA-W (you can see it HERE), but I ended up with something a little different. 
Instead of a big beautiful bouquet, I made a mini bouquet ornament that I love just as well. These "Festive" flowers will be hanging on my tree for many Christmases to come!

You also might remember the project posted with our "Festive" announcement last week. In case you didn't see, I wanted to make sure it was included in this post.

Here is a 12x12 canvas banner that was made by me (Emily) and I will be teaching a workshop in Chicago during CHA week. Yep, you can come out and make your own "Festive" holiday banner with us! 

The workshop is scheduled for Thursday, July 19 from 6:30-9:00 pm. Make sure you stop by the Creative Cuts and Crafts website for more details and to reserve your spot! Seats are limited, so call as soon as possible and secure your seat! 

Stop back tomorrow (and all week long) for more Festive projects from our design team!

Don't forget to stop by our Facebook Page and play along with our fun contest going on this week! (More details HERE!)
