Practical Scrappers Scrap Your Stash Blog Hop: Christmas in July + giveaway!

 Hello and thanks for hopping with us today!  I hope you've enjoyed what you've seen so far and that maybe you'll use up some of your Christmas stash! I know I tend to hoard LOTS of Christmas paper! 
If you are following the blog roll, you've arrived from Lynn's blog.  Just in case you are skipping around here is the complete list:
For my layout, I used Teresa Collins Designs' Santa's List from her summer 2013 release.  I'm happy to say I used up what I had left except for a handful of 12x12 sheets! :)   
My title was cut with white cardstock and cut file #51842
from the Silhouette Shop.   
Here, I added a chipboard button from the collection, as well as some sequins and enamel dots. 
I typed my journaling up on my electric typewriter with some of the patterned paper from Santa's List.  Do you like to journal with your own handwriting? I wish I had better penmanship...I have some fellow scrappy friends that have gorgeous handwriting! 

I added one of these cute pennants from the Chipboard Elements, as well as a doily and a gold paper clip!
More sequins, enamel dots, and chipboard!  Do you see a pattern here? LOL 
Thanks again for stopping by!  Before you leave, I love giving away goodies! Today,  I'm doing a giveaway of some Teresa Collins Designs papers and embellishments!! Just comment below and tell me your favorite thing about Christmas! 
Now onto Wendy's blog!

  7. Super cute layout Jen! I LOVE that you used the TC Christmas line. You should use your handwriting more! I don't even know what it looks like. I don't care for mine sometimes, but use it anyways. My favorite thing about Christmas is just being together. After all the hectiness and the stress, just sitting around talking and laughing and telling stories is my favorite.
