Who is looking forward to writing a wishlist as they watch those CHA releases from across the internet?

I am going to run a blog hop throughout July to inspire people to use up their christmas stash before the new stuff shows up. So you have over 6 weeks notice to pull out your box of christmasy stuff and scrapbook something with it.

The idea is that you inspire people to use their seasonal stash. It will run each monday in July. I will keep each one small (no more than 15 hops) but it will run every week in July to fit EVERYONE in, no one who wants to join in will miss out.

There is no audition or requirement except that you commit to posting a blog post on your date with one project inspiring people to use their Christmas stash.

You might scrapbook a non-seasonal photo with seasonal paper. You might finish up your languishing December Daily album and share that to motivate others who still want to finish theirs. If you are awesome enough to have NO christmas stash, you can still join in, I have a few ideas, just ask about it.

If you want to join in, please comment below and I will contact you with more info and some text to insert into your blog post closer to time.

We have a terrific group so far, some people have new blogs, only a few days or a few weeks old, some people are very well known, perhaps one is even in a certain garden?

This is supposed to be a welcoming blog hop, for those who would like to share their work, so if you would like to join something fun and happy to use some stash, please put your hat in the ring and don't be shy.

I don't blog but I have to say that this is a great idea, for two reasons (I'm sure there are more of course!)

1. I love Christmas in July! In NZ Christmas is summer so when a bunch of us Kiwi's lived in London we'd have a summer Christmas (in July of course) and now we all live in NZ we also have Christmas in July to remind us of our UK Christmases!

2. I'm a little scared of scrapping "important" events like Christmas so this will help me at least use up some of the stash I have collected!

Happy Christmas!

I love Christmas! I love Christmas in July (or in any month, actually! lol!). I have a huge stash of Christmas stuff that I should use and a large pile of Christmas photos to be scrapped. I would be honored to be a part of this blog hop! Thank you, Ruth, for organizing this! Awesome!

/Margareta I recently gave my paper trend blog a makeover.

Yay, Margareta I am so glad you will be playing along, I love your monthly inspiration over at your blog and the kits you make are terrific! Fabulous to have you joining in!

I love scrapping Christmas too, Christi, great to have you joining the fun!

Both of you are on the list for July 15th. We are about half full on the 15th now. Still lots of room for everyone who wants to play along.

I'd love to do this! I'm hosting a crop this weekend, and we'll be working on Christmas cards in an effort to use up my stash.

I'd love to play along. I've got a lot of Christmas stash - both goodies AND photos, so I'm excited for the inspiration as well. I'm traveling today, but will pea mail you when I get home this afternoon.
