Christmas in August!

I decided that since I never issue challenges, I'm going to throw one out there today.
It's the beginning of August, and after CHA, I'm revved up to clean out my stash of paper, in preparation for all the new fun designs and patterns that will be coming out in the scrapbook stores shortly.


My challenge to you is this. You've got a wad of Christmas paper jamming up your patterned papers, right? I challenge you to pull out those Christmas patterns that can double as regular paper. Pull it all out, and make as many thank you, birthday or all occasion cards that you can with it. USE IT UP! GIT R GONE! Open up some space so that when those yummy new papers come out, you'll have room to put them.


There are no rules, use whatever stamps you want, whatever Christmas paper you want. I've used old Basic Grey patterned paper on these thank-you cards. So old, in fact, that I have no clue what pattern it is! The stamp set is "French Mail" by Crafty Secrets.

Lovely! Looks like you should be stocked up for a while. Love how you made "non-Christmas" cards with that paper.
