Christmas Classes & Next Customer Challenge

Intro music please...."It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas" Well, it really isn't but it just might get your mind off of the blazing heat to start mentally picturing the upcoming Christmas season. Or, I could be just crazy...
No matter what time of year it is fun to work on holiday projects. The paper, the image, the abundance of opportunity to make someone happy by making them a card, book or home decor item. It is just fun to work on Christmas stuff!

The store is featuring a weekend of Christmas in July classes. July 30th & 31st there are a total of three great classes to jump start your holiday projects. There is a gorgeous wooden frame featuring a 12x12 layout, a holiday planner and Elegant Christmas Cards with Kelly Wann. Please check out the website for more details.

Next Customer Challenge
When a person starts thinking about Christmas it is natural to start worrying about the impacts to the budget. So this month's Customer Challenge is to make a Four-Square card. Great card to make on a budget because you can always use your scraps. Pick two to four coordinating papers and layer four different shape squares on a standard A2 card. You can embellish with ribbon, stamps, buttons, bling, flowers ~ you pick it!

The first sample is made with Cosmo Cricket's Odds & End collection. It is all paper with two buttons. Easy peasy. The second card is made with two patterned papers from the Magic of Oz line from Graphic 45. The cards are embellished with ribbon and a painted chipboard heart with a stamped sentiment.

So enough babbling, here is the challenge. Make a Four-Square card and send us an image to our email account or post it on Facebook by Friday, July 22nd. The winner will be announced on this blog on Monday 7/25. Good Luck!! The winner gets a Christmas paper sampler set from Reminisce.
