Christmas in July

The first thing I do when a kit arrives on my doorstep is to take out the paper and look at the designs. It would probably frighten some of you to know that I fondle feel the texture and sometimes even smell the paper. Some designs of the Office Space collection immediately reminded me of Christmas. A retro, groovy Christmas. I immediately took out these specific papers and made panels with them.  I used a previous sketch from May to create this first card. There was quite a bit of white space that was perfect for Christmas washi tape.

This next card was created from an older Mojo Monday sketch.

I was able to create 10 cards with these panels. I'm now ahead of the game! 
Last year I was chastised for sending out store bought cards. 
Not this year. I promise!


  1. Ooh, who knew Office Space would pair so well with Groovy Christmas? Awesome cards!

  2. How awesome is that, Lisa? What a great pairing. Almost like wine and cheese!

Supplies: Woven Strands papers, quilted embellishments, jewels and stamps. Thicker alphabet, Martha Stewart punch, Queen &a…
