Exploring Cricut Christmas in July Blog Hop!

Click HERE for my Close To My Heart Store! Pre-Order the NEW Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridge!!!!!

Hey All!!!!

Guess what today is???? It's the CHRISTMAS IN JULY blog hop with the team from Exploring Cricut! You should of come from Annette's page, but if you did not, start HERE with Sharon at the beginning!


Let me just say that you are in for SUCH a treat today with all of the talent that this team has to offer!!!

I was VERY excited about this hop because I myself, LOVE Christmas, and I do think about Christmas time, and what it means to me all year! I ESPECIALLY love to create Christmas Crafts! I jumped all over what I wanted to make as part of this hop!

First, I grabbed my FAVORITE Christmas Cartridge, which is Jolly Holidays! There is just something about those images that brings a smile to my face! It's also SUPER fast to create an image because the most cuts that you will need to create an image is 4!! EASY PEASY!!!

Now, before you see my project, you must now that since I am BACK (pictures of what I have been up too coming tomorrow), and I will be having a giveaway!

So, for my giveaway, you must:

1. Go to ALL of the my DT family's pages
2. FOLLOW their blogs
3. Leave them some love, and let them know Jessica sent you

That's it! At the end of the week, I will pick a winner to win a small set of stamps from my Close To My Heart goodies!!!

So, here is my project!!!
