It's Christmas in July!

I know, I know, we're in the middle of 90 degree temperatures and we're fa-la-la-la ing at The Paper Variety this week!! But, we have an amazing sponsor prize and a special TWIST in this week's challenge... you can't help but get in the holiday spirit.


That's right!! Our Christmas "gift" to you -- unlimited entries this week ONLY!! :)

So go ahead and get a head start on those holiday cards, catch up on your Christmas photos from years past, and/or create a holiday themed gift to give (you know before the hustle and bustle of December takes over). Upload them all!

We have a new sponsor this week! Check out what Scraptastic Club is offering to our winner:


I created a layout featuring my husband and I all dressed up for his company's black tie Christmas party.  I used the left side of this week's Sketchy Thursday sketch:


I love these photos and was excited to scrapbook them for this week's TPV challenge.

I used one of my favorite holiday collections, Basic Grey "Jovial".  I inked all my layers, including my photos in black ink. I used 2 different sized scallop border punches/scissors for the edging.


I used the "the most wonderful time of the year" along the bottom and birdie from the chipboard embellishments. My title shape is from the Storybook cartridge.


There ya have it!  Stop by The Paper Variety to see what the rest of our {{new}} Team A design team created and enter your holiday projects all week!
