CTMH Use Your Stash – Christmas in July

If you have lots of Close to My Heart stash that you’d like to use up, contact me about joining a Facebook group with monthly challenges that will help you use up your current product.  This month’s theme is Christmas in July.  You can make a card, layout, gift for Christmas, anything related to the theme.  For my Christmas card, I used a combination of already retired items along with ones that will be retired soon.
