Christmas In July by SUE CREASE

Today I'm up on the The Mad Scrapper Blog with a cute wall hanger for Christmas in July.
I took Dark Kraft  by Bazzill and a fancy square die and cut 3 of the same size out of it. Then I chose a selection of papers from Maja Design, mostly their Christmas selection and you will see I've used both sides.
On the image above I have used the other side of  Singing carols  along with a doily cut from Tradition - White  and a tag I've made from Santa´s Elves . I added some Christmas coloured sequins and a sentiment cut from the bottom strip from one of the papers.
The image above shows the middle section of the hanger. On this I have used  Tradition - White and a cute image with a border and underneath I have placed a green doily. 
I cut from a couple of the papers a few snowflakes and tucked them under the image too. 
I couldn't do a project without a flower and for this one I coloured in using red alcohol markers 2 Ivory 6cm single flower and to the centre I added another kraft snowflake and a green brad. After I'd finished I realised the parcel on the image has white dots so I added some to the flower. I also added a few glue red glue dots too.
The photo above shows the bottom piece of the hanger and on this one I have used the front of the Singing carols . I have also added a couple of die cut trees from  Shades of Tradition - White and added them with Adhesive Dots Roll - Small, and to them I added some red glue dots. I fussy cut a gnome and you will see him just above the Christmas chipboard sentiment which I mounted on to green and red cardstock. A few more glue dots in red and white and we were complete.
I found some eyelets in my stash and added those and to those I threaded some twine tying it off at the top. Now that's it ready for December!
Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you get inspired to make something like this yourself using some of Janine's many wonderful papers. If you don't want to wait till Christmas you can always make for Fall/Autumn or even a baby shower!
Take care and don't forget to leave a word or two. Oh and visit The Mad Scrapper  where you're bound to find something you really need lol.
