Holiday Joy Christmas Card

A little Holiday Joy Christmas Card to brighten up your day.

If you like making your own Christmas cards and have a lot to make,

this quick and easy card might be a great choice.

I’m thinking, this simple little card is the one I’ll send this year.

Card Details….

  • To make my snowflake stand out more. I took a small piece of white ultra metallic glitter vinyl and adhered it to a piece of cream cardstock before die-cutting the snowflake. You can’t tell by the picture, but the snowflake has a glittery shimmer.
  • I like to use the Xyron Create-A-Sticker*to add adhesive on the back of the gold cardstock before die-cutting the letters.  It makes assembling the card a breeze.
  • The finished card size is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.

Getting Cozy…and a update

NEW PRODUCT From Clear Scrap…

Stay Warm and Cozy this winter while you play with one of the “New” Mini Mixable Albums

from Clear Scraps.  My Mini Mixable Little Bits 3.5 x 5 Album, made with soft blues and tans,

A perfect little album for those snowy winter pictures.

DCC: Crafting with School Supplies

My Favorite Album

Every since I was a young girl, I have always loved shopping for back to school supplies.

In my family there were 5 kids.  My Mom had to save all summer for this.

It was always a big deal picking out a new outfit and getting supplies.

So when it came time to buy back to school supplies for my kids, I always tried to make it a special day.

I always feel bad for the kids whose mom is going down the aisle stressed and complaining.

That mom just doesn’t get it.  (she’s probably the mom who’s complaining in June)

Now that my son is in High School, back to school shopping isn’t quite the same.

But…I still stop and check things out.

l stock up on glue sticks, theme books and any little thing that I think I can use for my crafting

endeavors.  (I still have lined notebook paper and folders from several years ago.)

Index cards

For my Favorite Things Album, I picked up some inexpensive index cards for .48 at Wal-Mart.

When binding my book, I allowed enough space for two rows of cards.

Now, I can list favorite recipes, books, quotes.  (anything goes)
