Christmas in July

I think it was only a few years ago when I heard about “Christmas in July”, in my mind it is too early to prepare for Christmas. Some of the Filipinos starting to prepare as early as September and sobrang naaagahan na rin ako, July pa kaya.

But according to my research, Christmas in July is considered a second Christmas celebration, it is sometimes called Christmas in Summer or Christmas in Winter, depending if you are located in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere. They celebrate this in order to have a Christmas spirit or Christmas Winter Feel. 

Well, hindi pa uso yan sa Pilipinas but I still look forward to Christmas in July because of sales or promos. I’ve been buying digital products for my holiday crafts. I wanted to prepare as early as now so I won’t cram again. 

Anyway, since I’ve been doing a lot of craft projects this July, let me share the birthday cake topper, holiday ornaments, and birthday card that I’ve made for my aunt. It was a last-minute invitation so I no longer have time to buy a birthday gift so I decided to make my own gift. Good thing that I still have acrylic blanks at home. 

I have a lot of Christmas SVG files but due to my limited time, I decided to use the file that I’ve already tried and tested. This is the design that I used last Christmas, you can visit my DIY Personalized Christmas Ornaments post.  For the very first time, I was able to use the Cricut Brightpad that I received last Christmas, so after several months na nakatago, nagamit ko na rin. I’m thankful for this gift because weeding is a bit challenging so this made my life easier. The font is Festive.

I also made a name cake topper using my favorite font which is Samantha Upright. I used mirror gold cardstock, specialty paper, and glitter gold cardstock.  

Lastly, for the birthday card, I used white and mirror gold cardstock. I cut the Happy Birthday SVG file from the “Big Cake Toppers SVG Bundle” that I purchased last February.
