8 Weeks till Christmas

I keep saying it but I really don't know where this year has gone. O.K so this week I have a super easy card for you all which is a great one that the kids can join in and help do!
The strips of Real Red, Old Olive and Baja Breeze CS have been put through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dot Embossing folder. So quick and easy! My holly is made with punches. First I punched two large ovals in Old Olive, then with my 1/2 inch circle I went around the edges cutting small half circles out. The berries are also punched with the same 1/2 inch punch. "Happy Holidays" is from our Many Merry Messages set which always gets a work out at this time of year. I really like the clean and simple design of this card. You could whip up a whole stack of these in no time at all.
Till next time,

10 weeks till Christmas and New Products!

I have finally had time to play with some new products from the 10/11 Idea Book and Catalogue. If you don't already have a copy let me know and I'll get one to you. At $12.95 each they are such excellent value!
So above I have used 2 new In Colors Concord crush (purple) and Pear Pizzazz (green) which I think look fantastic together for Christmas cards or any time of year for that matter!!
The matching patterned papers are from the DS paper pack which is a 1st Level Hostess Gift option instead of stamps. These often get overlooked but are a great resource to have. They include the 5 new In colours in some gorgeous patterns.
Another new product is the DS paper Newsprint (the musical notes). This set of papers mainly has writing, letters, numbers etc but it also has a page of sheet music which can be used on so many projects.
The image is my friend Dasher. You'll find him on the inside back page of the catalogue for $14.95. He is a single stamp which I know I'll be using a lot this Christmas.
The other new product is the Concord Crush Stitched-Poly Ribbon and the greeting is from our ever popular set Short & sweet that carried over from last year's catalogue.

11 weeks till Christmas

My FIRST Christmas project for 2010! I thought I would start simple and use my favourite new Xmas set called Sparkly & Bright. This is a gorgeous set 0f 6 stamps with cute smaller images which are perfect for cards and tags. The greeting is from another of our new sets called Contempo Christmas. Notice our new border punch along the top of the card!!! Isn't it cute!
Hope you like them.
