Christmas in July Blog Hop and Crop
Welcome Creative Friends to the Christmas in July blog hop and crop, hosted by the Cooking Up Creations Master Chef Challenge Team!
The temperatures outside may say summer, but it's cool in here!!
We hope our projects and craft ideas will help you get a head start on your holiday crafting. If you have been following the hop route. Then you should have come from Annette's blog post over at the Cookin' Up Creations' blog. If not and would like to follow along the complete blog hop itinerary, Please start at the Cookin' Up Creations' Blog. So, you won't miss any of the fantastic projects and inspiration the Chefs have cooked up for you.
On my part of the menu I have created a sweet mini album for you to enjoy.
It’s super easy to make and cute! I know that you creative friends can whip up a few of these in no time at all. You can make these as a little gift for grandparents, new parents, newlyweds, teachers, friends or yourself (you get the idea).
Now, this mini can be made for any occasion. Just by changing out the paper (see samples below).
Just click on this link---> Christmas Mini Tutorial for the easy to follow directions and make one of these cuties yourself.
Samples – The 1st - one is a mini I did showcasing the artist love the most on the world.
The 2nd - one is a mini I created as a gift for a friend of her famliy.
See additional fun information below :)
