Christmas in July

Dashing through the snow 
On a one horse open sleigh,
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way!

Yes - it's Christmas in July here at Heart 2 Heart! We want to see your awesome Christmas projects, even though we are still just over 5 months from the big day. So dig out those holiday stamps, papers and embellishments to show us how you celebrate Christmas!

We have also paired up with another challenge called Double Trouble. To be eligible to enter their basic challenge you need to create something related to Christmas with a sentiment or journaling. Join both challenges and be on the Santa's Nice List.

Heart2Heart (for this theme only) has allowed you to enter this challenge and if you don't have a CTMH product don't worry about it...you are welcome to use any products.

We hope that you take advantage of BOTH challenges as they both will remain open until July 31st.

Now let's take a look at how our Design Team is celebrating Christmas in July.  

We look forward to celebrating Christmas with you just a little bit early and can't wait to see what you create!  Be sure to link up your project and leave us a comment too!

We all have a superhero in our life, so now is the time to celebrate that person with a card or layout.  You may, as many of our design team members have done, use an image for illustration, or you may just want to add some heartfelt journaling describing why you feel this person is a superhero.  Whatever you decide to do, we hope you will share your project here at Heart 2 Heart.  Remember to use at least one Close to My Heart product. This is the first challenge for July, so you will have the entire month to link up.

For your inspiration, here are ideas from the Heart 2 Heart Design Team:

We are looking forward to meeting your Superheroes!
