Planning on making Christmas Cards this year?

I thought I’d share a couple of the quick and easy layered cards that we made in my Holiday Workshop.

Sue’s Holiday Workshop is the start to all my favorite Christmas activities.

It’s something that I look forward to every year.

Just like Christmas, so much time and thought goes into planning.

And then… just like that, it’s over.

I was so lucky to be able to spend the day with these lovely ladies last Saturday.

They are such a fun and special group.  I appreciate each and everyone of them.

This year, I believe…the Frosted Winter Window was their favorite project. 

I know it was mine.

As always… I intend on taking a lot of pictures.  (but, I get too busy and forget.)

Always a fun day!  Till next year.

Thanks Again Ladies!

How to make a Holly Jolly Flip Album…

Holly Jolly Flip Book

I wanted to share with you today one of my favorite projects from my Holiday Workshop

last Saturday.  It is the “Holly Jolly Flip Album” using paper from Canvas Corp Brands

Farmhouse Christmas Collection and a 5″ x 7″ Black Acrylic Frame from Deflecto Craft Solutions.

It’s a fairly simple project and the ladies were able to complete the album in just a couple of hours.

Directions:

  1. Mark and measure hole placement on black acrylic frame.

  3. Cut a 7” x 9” piece of Red & Kraft Ribbon Stripe paper and insert into frame.
  4. Album Cover: Cut the “Holly Jolly Christmas” section from the Better Not Pout Tags on Kraft. Layer it onto black cardstock, kraft corrugated paper and then another back cardstock layer.
  5. Cut a 4 3/4” x 6 3/4” piece of Red & Black Stitched Diamonds and adhere it onto a piece of 5” x 7” Red Cardstock layer. Add a 3/4” x 4 3/4” strip of Red & Kraft Ribbon Stripe. Adhere “Holly Jolly” layers onto the Red & Black Stitched Diamonds.
  6. Punch a 1 11/16” circle from the Better Not Pout Tags and glue onto the back of the Optical lens by adding craft glue along the outside edges of the lens. Add jump ring to Optical Lens.
  7. Mark and measure holes to line up with black acrylic frame on the Album Cover and punch holes. Add eyelets to holes with the Crop-a-dile.
  8. Tie a piece of gold ribbon around the front of the album cover.
  9. Cut several pieces of black 5” x 7” cardstock layers to use as the pages of the album. Decorate album pages using additional scrapbook paper layers, strips, flips, pockets, trim, cords, tickets and mini bags.
  10. Align, measure and punch holes in the top of the album pages.
  11. Add album cover and pages to the black acrylic frame using medium book rings. Add Optical lens to ring.
