July Kit & Calendar

The July Kit and Calendar is here! :)

July is the seventh month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar. It is the second month of summer in the Northern hemisphere and winter in the Southern hemisphere.

July's birthstone is the ruby which symbolizes contentment. Its birth flower is the Larkspur or the Water Lily. The horoscopes are Cancer (astrology) and Leo (astrology). July was renamed for Julius Caesar, who was born in that month.

This kit is a hodge podge of sorts. It is based on the Northern hemisphere's summer July, which is on average, the warmest month of the year. There are various themes, romantic, a little boyish, tropical summer vacation, and some patriotic items (for celebrating Independence Day in the United States).

There are 15 papers, 1 12x12 floral overlay, an 8.5x11 calendar, and over 70 elements.

Elements include 15 flowers, 1 floral scatter, beads scatter, circles design, 2 butterflies, box, twine, staple, vintage key, word art, 6 ribbons, 2 diamond gem swirls, over 10 frames, 2 journal stamps, 6 titles, rocket firework, felt American flag with pick, 2 patriot vintage stamps, stars, old envelope, old note text, paper edge, metal heart, ruby heart gem, 2 tags, 2 sets of leaves, floral stem.

The month is not on the calendar. The month titles are included in the elements that can be added as you please.

The patriot download is optional.

I decided to give my team a little break this week since they've been working so hard. So I put these layouts together myself. I can't rock it them like they can but I tried. :)

These were all created with the July kit. It's a true Hodge Podge kit.

This is one of my all-time favorite photos. The quote is also included in the kit.

These are my in-laws. To me, they represent what a happy marriage (over 52 years!) should be. I completely respect them and hope that I can raise my kids nearly as well as they have raised theirs.

My two cool sons! lol

Beautiful kit. I will have to go purchase for use with our summer vacation pics. Thanks for sharing a little about your family, too, with your examples. I think it is awesome about your in-laws, what a blessing to be married that long. Look at that beautiful smile on your father-in-law! Happy Sunday!
