Christmas in July Workshop ... 8 more sleeps!!!

We are on the countdown to our Christmas in July Workshop - yes, 3 July is fast approaching and, as my 9 year old would say... 8 more sleeps to go!

Miss Lisa and I have been busy finalising the kits and hope our 'workshop lovelies' will be as happy as we are with the projects we have to present on the day.

At an Embellees Workshop we always try to 'mix it up' and 'jam pack' our kits ready for a day of 'full on projects'. 

We will be playing with a gorgeous layout ready to add that special Christmas photo ... for me that is the annual Santa photo.. everyone laughs when I say that it will be great to have the layout done in advance this year, so I can go and choose that 'special Chrissy' outfit to match the layout .... yes, my name is Liz and I am scrap-a-holic! 

What I love about the beautiful layout Miss Lisa has ready for us to do, is that she has challenged us to create the most beautiful Chrissy layout without one piece of Christmas paper in sight. 

It was so funny when we started planning the Christmas in July Workshop, it was acknowledged that I am the Queen of Christmas papers and Miss Lisa is the total opposite, so it seemed only sensible that Miss Lisa designed the layout... challenging yourself to do something outside your comfort zone always awakens the creative mojo and, let me tell you Miss Lisa has outdone herself.

After the layout we will be creating an off-the-page project - a fabulous Advent Calendar! Yes, you read it here - 25 tags and a fabulous frame to hand them from.... all in one Workshop.  We have continued with our colour palette of red, black and cream - a real vintage feel to our projects in this Workshop.

As promised here are some 'sneeky peeks'  ... we can't wait to see all our workshop lovelies cutting up artists canvas, inking, stamping and let's not forget the noise of Lizzie and her new toy .... an electric staple gun... now don't mess with a girl and her gun!

We also have a gorgeous kit for a December Daily Journal... but we have a surprise with this. 

It wouldn't be Christmas if we told you all the details... gotta leave something for under the tree!

We look forward to everyone joining us next weekend, it seems far too long since we saw all our regular workshop lovelies.
