Victorian Christmas Card

A Victorian Christmas Card & Getting Out of a Creative Rut

By | Cards, Christmas | No Comments

This weekend I was supposed to be making Christmas cards but instead I kept gravitating toward this spring color combo… Does that make visions of Sugarplums dance in your head? I posted this color combo on my Facebook and Heather Raine said “Those colors could make a nice Christmas card….I’m thinking something with snowflakes or ornaments. It’s a Victorian Christmas color combo.” And that’s how this Victorian Christmas card came to be. (As usual, this photo doesn’t do this card justice. The colors in real life are much softer and more Victorian.) Sahara Sand: 4″ x 5-1/4″ Very Vanilla card base:…

Wonderful Year Christmas Card

Most Wonderful Time of the Year

By | Cards, Christmas | No Comments

Christmas lights on houses as you drive through town, parties to gather with friends and family, Christmas music playing 24/7… Real Red card base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ Whisper White: 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ Patterned Green Paper: 4″ x 4-1/4″ I love a big greeting stamp like this one from the Wonderful Year stamp set. It takes center stage on your card and all it needs is a little embellishment to finish it off. This is a Christmas card, but really any time could be the most wonderful time of the year. I think I’ll try this greeting on the…

Giving Tuesday

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We had Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday… and now today is Giving Tuesday. I think today is my favorite because it highlights what the holiday season should really be about… Giving. And I don’t just mean giving piles of gifts that people don’t really need. I mean giving where it counts. Giving our time and money to care for those in need and to be an encouragement. Today I’m giving a donation to something near and dear to my heart. I remember going to visit my friend and her new baby 12 years ago. Such an exciting time!…

By | Cards, Christmas, Scrapbooking | No Comments

Have you gotten in on the Project Life pocket scrapbooking craze yet? If not, that’s okay!! But you should know that those pre-printed little cards can be used for a whole lot more than scrapbooking. Project Life cards can be used to make quick & easy greeting cards too! The little 3×4 cards fit perfectly on the the front of a card and the 4×6 cards can be trimmed a little to fit. Get creative with it! For this one I cut down the Project Life card on the left. My first idea was to stamp a greeting in that…
