Christmas In July!


Hi everyone!

Today starts the beginning of the sneak peeks of the new stamps that will be released by Hanna Stamps this coming Monday 6th July after the release party over on the Hanna Stamps Member Forum of SCS.

Friday’s also mean challenge time over on the Hanna Stamps Member Forums and this week Kerry Donovan-Casey has challenged us all with a Christmas in July challenge … yikes a good reminder I guess that we need to thinking about getting our Christmas cards etc started if we are going to be ready for the end of the year right.

Today I am featuring projects using the retro Hanna set that will be re-released by Hanna Stamps after the release party on Monday 6th July.

This month’s retro Hanna set is Perfect Package, this set is perfect for so many occasions … be it Christmas, birthdays or another other theme that we might give a present to someone. As I wanted to combine my projects with this week’s Hanna Stamps Friday challenge of course I went with the Christmas theme.

My first project today is a gift card holder … again this can be changed for any occasion just by changing the colors used.


Here is the inside of my gift card holder.

So what do we mean by retro Hanna & Riley??? During the summer months Hanna Stamps are having a retro summer. Retro summer will consist of Hanna Stamps regular released sets, and bringing back one of the old released sets into the mix. This will give the newer customer's a chance to see the old sets in a new light, and then give the customer's that already bought the sets a new way of using them. There will be a retro Riley and a retro Hanna set each month to go along with the new released ones. Hanna Stamps are going to include the retro sets/stamps in with the BUY IT NOW price bundle....another great way to save on those older stamps/sets. What if you already have those retro stamps and do not want to buy the BUY IT NOW bundle, but still want the special price for the new ones, we are going to have 2 BUY IT NOW bundles. 1. A BUY IT NOW bundle, and 2. A BUY IT NOW RETRO bundle. These BUY IT NOW bundles always saves you 15%.


And of course I couldn’t help but create a Christmas card … my first Christmas card for 2009 (I think) using the little package also from this set.

Hanna Stamps have two guest designers this month, click on the links below to check out there blogs and creations using the new release sets.
