I'm Dreaming of a Scalloped Christmas

In keeping with Christmas in July, last night I did a Christmas in July class. We had fun trying to pretend it wasn't 100 degrees outside. At the same time I also wanted to showcase the scalloped circle punch. This class was kind of hard for me to do since we still do not have the new SU! catalog we haven't had any Christmas papers since December and those ones that I had are almost gone and I didn't have enough to make the projects for every one, so I had to fudge some of it.

The first project we did was a photo wallet.

I just did not have enough scraps left to use Christmas paper on this so I just used what I had. I wanted some color in it so I used the Summer Picnic designer series paper. We figured it was still a gift for someone so it would fit the theme.
Here are some pictures of what it looks like opened up. The white areas are for journaling. If you would like to see the pictures bigger, just click on them.

Stamps: So Many Scallops
Ink: Real Red
Paper: Real Red, Bashful Blue, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Pearl from Pretties Kit
Punches/ Tools: Scallop Punch

The next project we did were gift card holders. I got the template from Dawn Griffith's website. It was real easy to put together but the ladies last night loved it.

The paper came from a retired Simply Scrappin Kit. I think that is was called All the Trimmings. Here is what it looks like opened. It is really hard to see the gift card in there because the only one I could find around the house was a navy one, so it blends in.

Stamps: Warm Words, Deer Friends, So Many Scallops
Ink: Real Red, Night of Navy
Paper: Night of Navy, Real Red, Brocade Blue, Whisper White, Designer Paper from All the Trimmings SSKit
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals
Punches/ Tools: Scallop Punch

The Third project was a set of little cards to go with gifts.

They use various colors of the Print Pattern Designer Series Papers, some of which are from the Prints Pack hostess set. I cased these cards from Angie Juda.
Here are the individual cards.

Stamps: Deer Friends
Ink: Real Red, Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery, Black
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa, Prints Designer series paper in coordinating colors
Accessories: Wide Grosgrain in Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.
Punches/ Tools: Scallop Punch, Crafters Tool Kit
