Christmas in July Blog Hop

Welcome to our Christmas In July Blog Hop with the Ginger Snap Scraps Design Team!




This weekend we will be featuring projects all about Christmas! Can you believe how fast the year is going!

We hope you enjoy all of the great work this Design Team has done and find some Christmas inspiration.


If you came from Maria's Blog, then you are in the right spot!

 For my project, I wanted to decorate my own Christmas Gift Bags. As you know, when you go to a Dollar Store, you can get a good deal on those Simple White or Brown Paper Bags and you can transform them into anything you like. You can give it your own touch. So I wanted to use Doodlebug Paper to create my project. I cute a 7.5 x 9 piece of Christmas Stripe Doodlebug Paper and used my Martha Steward Punch to punch snowflake border on top and bottom of paper. Then I self glued to the bag. I then created this little box to the front of the bag where you can add a little gift card such as a Starbucks Card. I added some twine for the holder of the box. Then, I used Green Stickles to give it some sparkle. Hope you all like it.






 For the sentiment, I used K. Andrews Fall-O-Ween Stamp Set to say "Treat for you."

Welcome to the "Celebrate This" Getting Cricky Blog Hop!!







We're so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We'd like to invite you to visit each of our DT Sisters' Blogs.


Throughout the hop we'll be showing what we love about....  Celebrations!!  From Birthdays and Winning Games to celebrating a new job. Celebrations can be made up of many things. We hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!  Sooooo, let's get hopping...



If you've hopped along from Faith Abigail , then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!)...



Each of Kristal's stamp sets benefit charity. At least $1 per stamp set goes to benefit the charity noted on the stamp set package. Kristal is donating to the following charities: Cancer Angels, Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children, Intrepid & Fallen Heroes, E. Glaser Pediatric AIDS  Foundation, Doorways Shelter for Women & Children (Domestic Violence), Wayside House for Women, Camp Good Days & Special Times, Adopt a Classroom, and Autism Research Institute. Kristal will donate $1 for every stamp set sold, retail or wholesale to the charity noted; and over time believes this will add up to some wonderful miracles for these special people. So you can feel good that each time you purchase a K Andrew Designs art stamp set, someone around the country is receiving some good help!



K Andrew's stamps are all made and assembled here in the USA, which is very important to Kristal. This ensures all product materials are safe and that jobs are being provided and maintained here in America.  You can learn even more about Kristal's stamps (and pick some up for yourself) by visiting her online store: K Andrew Designs:

GSS: Our Favorite Things Christmas in July


Hi everyone! Welcome to My Favorite Things Christmas in July Ginger Snap Scraps. Each of the Design Team Ladies will be showcasing each day their favorite products from the store and how we use them in our projects. As there are so many products that I love in the store, I selected to use my Top Favorites which are Doodlebug, Echo Park, Twine and Stickles.



My first project is a Scrapbook Layout showcasing Doodlebug Design and Stickles. This is a fun Elves Doodlebug Paper which showcases some adorable Elves with Presents. This would be perfect for when taking photos of family giving each other gifts. I created a fun scene at the bottom of the layout showing a snowy hills with Christmas Trees as they are decorated with Lights used by Stickles.



The second and third Project are Christmas Tags I have made with Chipboard and are decorated with Doodlebug Design Present Paper and Echo Park Paper. These are fun Tags that can be added to a gift or to be placed on a tree.



Also, used Twine for the Tag.
