Christmas in July

Yes, we know it sounds strange or maybe even a case of OCD that we are getting organised for Christmas this early... but with our Christmas in July Workshop fully booked out and our 'Workshop Lovelies' keen to see what the day will bring - as promised we wanted to 'tease' you with some sneaky peeks at what we have been 'kitting' up ready for this fabulous Workshop day!

We have been busy with a gorgeous layout - now those who have been to an Embellees Workshop know that 'a layout' is not just about sticking down paper and adding a few embellishments with us... we love to mix it up! As you can see (or maybe not see) from our sneaky peek. We have gone with a very vintage feel with black, white and red playing a big part in our colour palette. Textures include fabric, tags and some of the ever popular bakers twine... oooh and did I mention yummy stamps.... Miss Lisa (aka Lisa Greedy) has definitely out done herself with the gorgeous Christmas tree (if somewhat non-traditional) on this layout....
I (Lizzie) can't wait to put my Santa Photo on this one in 2011 (I can't believe I will actually have the layout ready for the annual Santa photo... and even better - I can search for a new dress for Miss J that just matches our layout colour palette - am I really that addicted to my scrapping - you bet!!!).

Like us ... bet you promise every year  to make an Advent Calendar and, like us you probably end up having to buy one - not this year!!!

Our 'Workshop Lovelies' are going to be having fun with the 'adult' version Advent Calendar.  We can't wait to show you what we have been up to with an exacto knife, our trusty staple gun, 25 tags and well... yep nearly every tool and product in our stash.

Forget hanging out the washing  - time to peg some gorgeous tag 'goodness' ready for the holiday season.

We will be using lots of texture, stamps, papers and who could forget the 'Embellies'.

Wait until you see what we came up with to complete the finished look ... and there might even be a pressie to go with it waiting under our Christmas Tree!!!

And what would a Christmas in July workshop be without us getting a 'head start' on the famous ' Ali Edwards' inspired - December Daily!

This is a super project that our 'Workshop Lovelies' will be able to adapt to suit their personal needs  - and to think... all ready before 1 December - yah!!!!!

Lots going on in this project - 25 pages to be exact... or thereabouts....

We will be getting out the embossing folders, the spellbinders, the stamps and trying a few new techniques along the way.... oooh we see some masking and inking, some use of clever hybrid printouts... lots happening in this eclectic and fun album....

Well, we hope you have enjoyed the Sneaky Peeks for our Christmas in July Workshop.  Even though we are 'sold out' for the scheduled Workshop date of 3 July 2011, if you are interested or would love to get a group together, please don't hesitate to contact us at:, because we can always bring a Workshop to you or, if we get enough numbers set another date for a repeat performance.

Lizzie & Lisa
