‘Tis the season to be jolly… I’m having a jolly good time getting into the Christmas mood a little earlier this year and creating a ton of Christmas cards! How do you make yours? Do you batch create the same design or do you switch things up a bit? I’m afraid I must have creative ADD because I just can’t seem to make the same
I’m smiling today. How about you? It’s a great day to create a card and pop it in the mail. Make someone smile! I’m also excited about guest designing for The Card Concept! Have you heard of it? It’s a fab challenge blog that highlights different styles of paper crafting all from one inspiration photo. How cool is that? So you can be inspired to
Snowflake upon snowflake…you KNOW it’s coming! We’ve had an unseasonably warm fall this year but I do know that winter is just around the corner.

You don’t need to add any metal at all to get the effect! Today I’m adding some die-cut gold accents to make a simple design pop! In fact, I find that when using gold accents you DON’T
Pink-a-licous! Pink snowflakes? Why not?! I’ve been addicted to felt these days. It’s so warm and fuzzy. This beautiful pink felt caught my eye while sitting in a storage basket on my work counter. I just had to give it a whirl! And since I was creating a card for a sketch challenge…it just seemed like a great duo. Looking for a great sketch challenge?
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Here in Canada, it’s just not the same at Christmas if there is no snow. I love lots and lots of it (at least until February) as it makes everything so beautiful and fresh and bright and peaceful.
