GHWI Challenge #23 Still Happening...

Welcome to a new week!!! Today I have a little inspiration to share for the GHWI Challenge #23 - Christmas in July with a Tag. We are only half way through the month so there is still lots of time for you to play along in the challenge.  Remember all you have to do is create a project, card, ATC any piece of art with a Christmas theme and has a tag!!

I decided to get a jump on my Christmas gifts and created a little box this week.I wanted it to be simple since I usually end up making 20-30 of these types of gifts for my co-workers. I cut the box using my Cameo which of course I LOVE!!! I have such a hard time when I'm crafting somewhere besides my craft room and I can't take it with me. 

I used 2 sets in the creation of this little gift - Warm Wishes and Gingham Christmas Greetings!! 

As you can see below the snowflakes with I heat embossed in silver came from the Warm Wishes set that can be found here.

Then I used the Gingham Christmas Greetings for my little tag which you can find here.

Remember these sets can be found on Aletha's sales blog or through Unity but be sure to choose to Aletha as your Ippity Chick!!

I also wanted to invite you to join The GHWI Customer blog hop on August 10-12. We are going to be celebrating Aletha as our awesome Ippity chick!!! The requirements are as follows -

1. To create a project using your favorite {ippity} stamp set. You only need to create one project for the hop.
2. Have it posted on your blog by Friday August 10th at 8AM EST
3. Include information about and a link to Aletha’s {ippity} sales blog

And if you can't be part of the hop, we sure hope you'll do some hopping along the trail. There will prizes to win along the trail.

Sign ups will close by Friday August 3rd.  If you are interested in joining the fun then please email me (Melissa Czapor) with GHWI August Blog Hop in the subject line. My email

As always remember if you haven't joined the Facebook group and GHWI group at The Crafter's Cafe, you are missing lots more inspiration!!
