Christmas in July

Snowmen anyone?
Working on a Christmas project for the "Christmas in July" Challenge
at the Kraft Journal Blog had me inking snowmen.
I was so inspired by the tutorial at the Kraft Journal blog on Wednesday that I decided to create a
tag set.
You can check out the tutorial and the current challenge at their blog HERE.
now for this week's challenge:

I pulled out some of my new goodies from the
Kraft Outlet to create this tag set.
It was a fun change of pace and helped keep my mind off the fact that summer vacation is almost over!
Patterned paper:  Basic Grey "Jovial" 6 x 6 pad
Stamp:  snowman: Inkadinkado & music "Stampland"
Ink: Unity Burnt Umber & Haystack
Colorbox Cat Eye Chalk Ink: Chestnut Brown
Stampin Up: Crumbcake
Kraft envelope: ClearBags
buttons: recent vintage find
Punches: Fiskar Threading Water & Ledger Border Punches
Large snowflake: Marvy Uchida
Dies: Papertrey Ink "Tiny Tags"
twine: household
Baker's Twine: Red Divine Twine

Kraft Outlet Supplies:
Kraft Tags and Manila Tags
Kraft Baker's Twine (brown/white)
Lunch Bag Cardstock
Kraft Circle Labels

Thanks to the folks @ the Kraft Journal Blog for the inspiring tutorials
and for featuring my Back to School tote project which I linked up to last week's
"My Favorite Things" Challenge.  Now hop on over to the
for some more Christmas in July inspiration!
