Good morning friends! I'm so happy you are joining me today for a Christmas in July Blog Hop I am participating in with a few friends. It's never too early to get started on Christmas cards and gifts. I'm actually getting started much earlier than usual. I've been working on some card gift sets for my co-workers. I just got 2 new Christmas stamp sets in from Sweet n' Sassy and Red Rubber Designs this week! They both have poinsettia's in them. I'm planning on putting together some samples so I can work on them on my 2 day drive to Colorado next week.
Today I am featuring projects designed using files from The Cutting Cafe. If you need more Christmas inspiration then make sure you stop back by the week of July 28 to check out Christmas projects designed by the Design Team for The Cutting Cafe.
Some of the participants of today's blog hop are offering give-aways, so make sure you complete the blog hop. Read more about my give-away at the bottom of my post.
The first project showcases "Present Treat Box". The Cutting files are available in WPC and SVG. I hand cut mine using the PDF file. I also used Gina K. Designs "The Magic of Christmas" stamp set and Spellbinders "Layered Poinsettia" die set.
This little treat box was designed using "Stocking Box". I don't really plan on giving anyone plastic silverware for Christmas, teehee. I just wanted to give you an idea of the size. I think peppermint sticks would be perfect for this box.
Next up in the blog hop is
