Christmas in July, SIP5 & MOJO406


Hi friends! We are already at week #5 for our challenges at Stamp, Ink, Paper, and this week the theme is Christmas in July. Love! I also love that inspiration photo. It totally makes me want to spend Christmas in Florida this year! 


I was so excited a few weeks ago to be the winner of a stamp set from Verve for playing along with a Mojo Monday challenge. I've never owned a Verve stamp set before, and was of course a little overwhelmed by my options. I finally settled on this stamp set, Holiday Greetings, with all it's amazing options.


I've been patiently waiting for a Mojo sketch to christen it with, and today is the day! A big thank you to Julee and Mojo Monday! 


Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Holiday Greetings (Verve)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake (SU)
Patterned Paper: Glistening (Authentique)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)

Please pay a visit to the rest of the amazing Design Team at Stamp, Ink, Paper, and please play along with us this week, too!
