Christmas Quilt Mini Cards

Do you remember a few years ago we used to sell 3×3 mini envelopes?  Well they are back in our Holiday Catalog. So I created a little set of mini cards to go with them.


I used the Christmas Quilt bundle – the stamp set and the coordinating framelits for these cute little cards.  I also stamped each envelope to match the card.

To make a 3×3 card cut your card stock to 6″ long by 3″ wide and then score the long side at 3″.  For these I cut pieces of the Quilted Christmas Designer Series 6×6 Paper Stack for the front of each card.  Mine are 2-3/4″ squares.  Then I stamped the little quilted trees from the stamp set and die cut them with the die set and added the stitching piece to each one.

For the greeting I cut a 3″ strip of Whisper White card stock and I used a Real Red ink spot (I had one from a Paper Pumpkin Kit) to ink up only the words Merry Christmas from the greeting in the stamp set.  I stamped that on my strip for the front of each little card.  These would be cute for little gift enclosures this holiday season.

Wonderland Quick Card

Are you in need of a quick card for the Christmas Holidays?  I think this card fits that need.  Not only is it quick to make but also very beautiful.  The Wonderland stamp set in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog has an image of some gorgeous evergreen trees.  I used the Thick White Card Stock for the card base – stamped directly on the card.  For this sample I used gold washi tape and cording but silver would also be beautiful.

This was one of the cards we made at my November Christmas Card Stamp A Stack.  For the class I prepped 80 of these and pre-tied almost all the bows for the ladies that came to class.  I think that was the best for them – me tying the bows!  Now I just need to create some more for me!

If this card looks familiar it’s because it is very similar to the one actually in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.  They used only a portion of the tree image and I used the whole thing.  They added the wooden snowflakes which I left off this card because we used them on a different one and I didn’t have enough for both – plus there wasn’t really room when stamping the full length of the trees.

Here is a full list of supplies:

If you want to use silver instead of gold use the Silver Cording Trim and the Everyday Chic Washi Tape.

Thanks for visiting today.  I think I need a new little signature graphic.  Maybe I can create something new over the holiday break.


Hello December

I think I got the editing issue resolved – I didn’t do anything but today it was working.  I guess it was just one of those days…

Hello December!

I designed this fun project for my girls that came to the Fall 2015 Stamp, Scrap & Create Retreat.  It’s a December count down (or count up) calendar.  Marking the days of December until Christmas arrives.  I used the Hello December Project Life Accessory Pack as the main piece of the project – so each person had their own Accessory Pack to work with and kept everything that we didn’t use for this project.  I also used the Hello December Project Life Card Collection – but divided a pack between multiple people.  In the card collection there are 3 designs that had 10 cards of each – so everybody got one of those and then the rest I sorted by “type” and divided up equally.

Here is the cover –

I added card stock pieces to create the base of each page.  The pages are attached to the frame with book rings.  In order to have the punched holes in the same place for every page I created a template piece that I used to mark the holes on each page before punching.

Here are the first few pages – December 1 – December 6.

I’ll share more pages in the coming days.

Thanks for stopping by today.
