Christmas Cards

My 2011 Christmas Cards

These are supposed to be my easy cards.  Then I started adding stuff.  The idea was supposed to be a simple layer of DP a stamp and the "25".  But I ended up adding more.  I wanted to stick with Kraft paper and that includes some Kraft Holiday pack by Recollections.  I guess they are still pretty simple.


I made 25 each of greens and reds. 

The "25" is cut using the Winter Woodland cart and layered.  That's 100 numberes cut, layered and popped up on dimentionals.

This vintage Santa stamp is a Recollections set. 

I also picked up a Tim Holtz stamp set and used the Stag and Merry Christmas, stamping right onto the Kraft paper.

I ended up adding ribbon, twine and these cute mutted coloured jingle bells.  I also spritzed the Santa layer with gold and sealed using hairspray.  I gives a pretty shimmer!

My cards are cut at 5x5 and I'm pretty happy how they turned out.  I love the vintage stamps, Kraft papers and little elements.

I squeezed all 50 cards into this little tote!

I hope you had fun making your Christmas card.  These took me about 8 hours to make all 50.  But if you liked it you could make one in about 45 min.

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
