July Inspiration Class

This month we will celebrate Christmas in July. Our featured stamp set for July's Inspiration class is The Snowflake Spot, which will sadly be retiring in August. I'd forgotten how much I love this stamp set until I started working with it again. I used a lot of inspiration and CASEd some ideas from SCS. Here's the set of cards we will make at class. {Red Cheers recipe}
