{Christmas in July!}

It's Christmas in July week over on the Imaginisce blog, using the new Christmas Cheer Collection.  Here are 2 of my layouts, I may or may not have had Christmas music playing while I was working on them ;)

I did some machine sewing and used a fun border punch. I also did a bit of fussy cutting and removed the word Merry from the Christmas die cut so it would work with Christmas eve cookies.

Next up, a layout using an old black & white.  You all know I love the old b & w's!!

Another fun border punch on this one, and I added a little piece of tinsel garland to the ornament.
I love that the Christmas Cheer collection works perfectly with my photos from 2010 just as well as they do as a photo from 1951.

As always, thanks for stopping by!!
