Good morning everyone! Welcome to the #CIJParty here on the CIJ blog! We wanted a way to party with all of our team members and followers around the globe during CIJ 2014, so we are taking this party virtual. Besides, what better way to attend classes, get swag bags, and win prizes than from the comfort of your deck, patio, or swimming pool in July?
Sit back, relax and enjoy the party!
We’ll be having new classes posted all day for your crafting and learning convenience and excitement! Here’s the schedule – all times in Eastern Standard Time:
Let’s face it, besides the food and the friends, the best part of the party is the goodie bag! We’ve pulled together a fun download bundle of projects and printables as a ‘thank you’ for stopping by today.
Thank you Jen from CaffeinatedPapercuts for providing our swag bags today! Jen is a member of the CIJ leadership team and writes for our blog, and is a swag bag expert! She also is active on Pinterest and has created an Etsy Christmas In July board where you will find more fun ideas and projects!
Tell Your Friends!
The official hashtag for this year’s party is #CIJParty and if you’re partying with us today, we’d love to see! Be sure to use Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, etc. Are you new to social media? Don’t be shy! We look forward to getting to know you! Being at a party is all about interacting and developing relationships!
Many of our Christmas in July members are partying along with us by offering some sweet sales. Think of this as our version of hitting the snack bar!
When you use the Etsy search bar simply put in Christmasinjuly (35,610 handmade items, 11,141 vintage items and 9,102 craft supply items) or CIJ (119,703 handmade items, 31,916 vintage items and 16,230 craft supply items). So many fantastic deals from fantastic shops during #EtsyCIJ 2014.
Many shops are using the universal coupon code – EtsyCIJ14 – so please watch for coupons before you check out.
Other shops have already reduced their prices and their items are as marked.
