Christmas In July

Has anyone asked you lately if you’re ready for the holidays? It might seem like a silly question in the middle of summer, but it’s really worth considering. Now is really a wonderful time to make your gift and greetings list and to start accumulating and saving up all the publishing points you’ll need for your meaningful Heritage Makers holiday projects!

Here are some wonderful gift ideas, holiday home decor projects, and greeting cards to inspire you. These and many more are available in the template gallery.

This is a beautiful holiday wall hanging (below) designed by Michelle Wolfley ("JOY," template
76184) made from a 3-panel card. Michelle simply cut out the individual squares, mounted each on a piece of foam board, attached ribbons and hung them up. This would make a beautiful gift or display for your own home.

Check out this cute "Holiday Name Canvas," designed by Lynda Angelastro (template 90371). What a fun way to welcome holiday visitors to your home! And it'd make a great pre-season gift, sure to be loved!

Calendars are always a popular holiday gift item--and think how popular you'll be if you give personalized ones! Use this 8.5 x 11 calendar, template
53763, by Michelle Bell. Filled with your fun family photos and themed pages, the calendar will keep everyone looking forward to each new month!

Lynda Angelastro encorporated a calendar into this lovely 4 x 8 photo card, above, to combine a lovely keepsake greeting with a useful gift. This very popular template is 77163 and will be updated from a 2012 to 2013 calendar by the end of the month, as will all our favorite calendar templates.

Here's an absolutely delicious gift, ideal for neighbors and friends. It's a 6 x 9 booklet full of pages with tastey holiday cookie recipes. The recipies and photos are all there, ready-to-go. All you have to do is add a personalized message and pubish as many booklets as you'd like to share! Wouldn't this be a perfect gift nesled in a basket along with a cookie mix? The "Cookie Mix Recipe Book" is template
74075 and was designed by Lynda Angelastro.

Of course there are oodles of holiday greeting card and invite teamplates just waiting for your personal festive touch! The "Gingerbread Christmas Card" was designed by Ann Perry. It's a 7 x 5 greeting card and is template 74266. Nicole Rainosek designed the 7 x 5 "Holiday Card" template, number 77418.

The "Jolly Santa" 5 x 7 template was designed by Roxanne Buchholz and is template 76947. "From our Family to Yours" is another fabulous 5 x 7 greeting card. It was designed by Ann Goldman and is template 72579.
