Christmas in July '17

Welcome the the July edition of the 12 Kit of Occasions!
It is our annual Christmas in July post this month and the fabulous Kim Heggins in our head cheer maker this month. She sent out a fantastic collection of patterned papers, stamped images, die cuts and embellishments to play with.

Here are four cards that I put together, so far, with the kit this month...


I am also adding this Furry Friends card to Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #76 Anything Goes.




All of my projects together one more time!


I am submitting all of these projects to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.


  1. these are all so cute Tracey! The slider sledding card is darling!! What a great way to use that printed paper in the kit too. I'm glad I held on to that piece so I can CASE your idea. A super sweet collection of cards as always!

  2. Darling cards ... LOve that little sled-rider on the slider!
    You're off to a darling start with your Christmas cards, Tracey! Do you have a layaway plan? xx

  3. Good Morning Tracey! Love visiting my teammies to ooh and aah over their brilliance, and you never disappoint! The slider? LOVE! and the candy cane blocked card is just so striking. Your coloring on the trio is beautiful, as usual. Love the snowflake setting. Hugs!

  4. Oh wow! Christmas is my favorite, and each and every one of these are amazing! I'm going to have to pick the color blocked one as my favorite though! That is SO cute!!

  5. Love your adorable collection of festive cards Tracey! So in love with your little sweeties sliding down that snow covered hill, just too darn cute!

  9. Using a slider for the sled was the perfect idea. super cute card! I love your trio of furry friends too. They're all I knew they would be!

  10. As wonderful as always, Tracey! I always love seeing your beautifully done designs. The coloring of the furries is fantastic. And the slider is such a fun way to use the PI girl. Your block design is absolutely fabulous--such a perfect use for that paper! And I love the red and white accent on the edge.

  11. Brilliant kit! I love that you used the pattern paper for embellishmetns with the squares.. the zig zags are heavenly .. the aqua and red together.. but OMG.. the card that wins hands down is the interactive slide for the sled! I love the distress ink background.. so clean and clever!
