Christmas in August?
You are JOLLY right! Now is the perfect time to grab some of your favorite Prima Christmas items and start creating! Just think: no pressure, no stress, no deadlines...you can create at your own pace and actually ENJOY it!!! We would love to suggest the Santa Baby collection by Frank Garcia and the new holiday stamps by Julie Nutting for lots of festive creative fun!
The Santa Baby collection is so nice, soft and sweet. It is perfect for creating something special for kids, but it is also good to make beautiful Christmas cards in tender shades, adding some flowers and fussy-cuts for lots of texture and color. I added some mixed-media notes to this, to make the background more complicated and dimensional. ~Nadya Drozdova

I just love creating with this fantastic reindeer stamp by Julie Nutting! I colored Rudi with watercolor paints, cut her out, then placed her on my frosty card. I also added beautiful mint flowers for a sweet decorative finish. ~ Marta Piekarczyk.
I've always enjoyed creating a few Christmas projects way ahead of time. I always think I am going to have so much time to create closer to the holidays and then, BOOM, the time is gone and I am busy focusing everything else that has to be done! Can you relate? I'd love for you to share any of your Santa Baby or Julie Nutting holiday creations with us on any of the Prima media below!!! Happy Holiday Creating!
