The Christmas In July team shared the trends on a Pinterest Board!

Let’s enjoy the trends : Bedroom Eyes, Garden Party and Storybook Romance.

Bedroom Eyes

Sue and Misty from shabbyshopgirls says:

The idea behind “bedroom eyes” is wearable, lounging lingerie. Pretty to wear to bed, yet nice enough to lounge around the house in! Think Mad Men! This gorgeous nightgown is worthy of a Jane Austen Novel!

Richard and Tatiana from DesignstheLimit says:

When we think of looking our best in the bedroom, we think of spending some quality time in bed with a glass of wine and a plate full of strawberries. The table has folding legs and is available with matching monogrammed stemware.

Garden Party

Annie from DesignedbyAnneliese says:

Spring is in the air, the flowers are blooming and the butterflies are fluttering around. I can picture the butterflies in the background of the garden party with their vibrant colours and pretty patterns. These cards are just right for the spring!

Dana Hamant from LilybeanzBowtique:

Flowers are one of my favorite supplies to work with. I might be a Hipster in the Garden Party trend!

What says Garden Party more than a Spring wedding? My flower girl baskets are the perfect addition to a garden wedding.

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals:

I’m so ready for warmer weather and flowers blooming. Making this bracelet helped put me in the mood for a garden party! Crocheted with golden silk and adorned with pink roses, beads, and a tassel. Ultra feminine with a Victorian flair.

Sue and Misty from shabbyshopgirls says:

An absolute MUST for every garden party is a vintage floral tablecloth! We love the yellow carnations and blue accents in this gorgeous 1960’s printed tablecloth. Set up the table with small vases of wildflowers, mismatched dishes and blue stemware and you’ll have a beautiful table setting for your garden party!

Dawn Whitehand from DeeDeeDeesigns says:

Any of my tableware items could be used for a garden party …. and being handmade and unique they would make an individual splash to any celebration decor!

This setting is great for pre dinner tapas or post dinner cheese and pate!

Storybook Romance

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

Here’s a heart-felt greeting card perfect for igniting any storybook romance. The photo was captured on one of Paris’ bridges spanning the Seine. Lovers purchase ‘Cadenas d’Amour”, or Love Padlocks, attach them to the bridge and throw the key in the river, sealing their love forever. Sadly the locks have mostly been removed because there were so many that they were weighing down and damaging the bridge, but the sentiment lives on in this romantic card.

What is more Storybook Romance than a beautiful yellow princess tutu dress?

Valerie Brown from FirepanJewellery says:

I think one of the most romantic things you can do for your storybook romance is have your wedding rings handmade just for you. Your wedding ring is the most meaningful piece of jewellery that you will wear. Having your rings handmade for you, by a goldsmith, makes them a more special and personal statement to each other.

Corkycrafts from Corkycrafts says:

Anybody who loves wine would love to have their wedding at a vineyard with the rustic smells of aged wood barrels, grapes in harvest and the rustling of the leaves on the vine. Add a touch of whimsy by using a wine cork kissing ball as a floral alternative and the flower girl to carry Plus its also the perfect size for children to carry too!

March – New Arrivals

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

Join the Christmas In July team as we celebrate March – New Arrivals.

Valerie Brown from FirepanJewellery says:

I love color, so the Pantone list is right up my alley! I had an opportunity to turn the kiln on and now have new enameled earrings inspired by the 2016 colors! This is a fun pair I made by combining two colors of enamel, resulting in “Rose quartz + Serenity” earrings. This is a fun and easy way to bring the new color trends into your wardrobe!

VeeVee from VeeVeesCreations says:

These flowers are a personal favorite. I created this flower to represent spring and Easter. I used high quality lavender and sea-foam green jump rings to create the flower.

When I finished this flower, I knew that it would be a perfect gift for my own mother. She has always loved spring and lavender is one of her favorite colors. When my nieces saw this necklace, they all wanted one. It is a necklace that can be loved by woman of all ages.

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

I seem to be fascinated with pink at the moment. Although I don’t wear much pink myself, I find my self drawn to it. I made this bracelet with rose-pink nylon cord and pink pearls and Swarovski crystals. Very feminine and dainty.

Marjorie Scenna from mscenna says:

This colorful flower ornament and sun catcher features bright and fun colors like you might find in a spring garden or rainbow!

I began this ornament with the fun flower, a recycled clip-on earring. Looking at the colors, I quickly saw a rainbow of colors which made me think of spring flowers and rainbows, of course. The strand of colorful beads are a recycled and vintage mix with fun shapes and textures.

This would be a colorful accent for a window but wouldn’t it be a great accent in a garden too?

Corkycrafts from Corkycrafts says:

I keep this creation in my shop during wedding season, it’s a great alternative for floral and small enough the flower girl can walk down the aisle with. I made these for mistletoe at Christmas time and now presenting for wedding season.

I made these lovely metallic envelopes with wedding season in mind! I love the colours and patterns on them. Apart from weddings, they can also be used for gift cards, money envelopes, snail mail, planner pockets…

Debbie Gilbert from License2Craft says:

Having a full shop and selection of hot/cold therapy wraps & packs for all parts of the body, I realized and had several inquires about children’s packs. How did I miss this?

So, starting this month I have begun to start carrying packs with children especially in mind. It goes without saying that with children there will be bumps, bruises, skinned knees & elbows, fever, tummy aches and plan old “growing pains!” These Boo-Boo packs are all designed with fun, recognizable fabric patterns and sized just right for their tiny hands. They will want to use them…because they are just “so darned cute!” Making them a perfect gift for a new mom or to have on hand when the grand kids come to visit. These packs would also make a perfect children’s party favor.

Be prepared by keeping one in the freezer, and one on hand to pop in the microwave on a moments notice. You will be “the hero” with these packs for all their “Ouchies!”
