Christmas Cards for the PJ Crop Card Exchange

Hi folks!

Every year around this time, there is a crop at Algonquin College here in Ottawa. I've been attending pretty much since the beginning - it's the one crop I make sure to attend every year.

Something new the last couple of years is that attendees can sign up to take part in a Christmas card exchange. We each make 10 cards and the participants swap with each other - so we all come home with 10 different cards! It's always fun!

These are the cards I made this year. Simple (I rushed to make them the night before) but I think pretty.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Sending Tidings of Comfort & Joy

Hi folks,

Just popping in today to share the other card style featured in the Joyful Tidings WYW Cardmaking Kit.

I love this fun colour combo! And, once again, while the kit suggests using the scalloped border Thin Cuts, I used my scallop border punch to replicate the look AND I hand cut the banner as I did not yet have the banner Thin Cuts (I do now!).

Warm Winter Wishes

Hi folks,

The Christmas cards continue - but with a different paper collection! This card features the paper collection "Silver and Gold" and is from the "Joyful Tidings" cardmaking WYW.

I quite like this colour combo and that little bit of bling is just right.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year - Take Two!

Hi folks,

I'm back today to share another Beary Christmas card inspired by the same workshop as yesterday's card.

This is another one that is quick and easy to whip up - and is an easy to mail one. No extra postage required!

Once again, I used the Beary Christmas Cardmaking Stamp set and embellished with some red enamel gems from my stash.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Hi folks,

Yes - I'm still posting Christmas cards even though it's more than two months away yet! Get started early and there isn't a rush closer to Christmas!

This card is another clean and simple one featuring the CTMH Beary Christmas papers. Again, inspired by the cards in a 10 card workshop that uses only one sheet of patterned paper and one sheet of each of three card stock papers.

The original design for this card did not have a sentiment on the front but I thought it needed it. so, I just added the sentiment from the Beary Christmas Card Making Stamp Set in addition to the wreath on the centre panel.

 As always, thanks for stopping by!

Happy Holidays

Hi folks,

Back again today to share another card inspired by the bonus cards from the Beary Christmas Scrapbooking WYW kit from CTMH.

I switched up the background paper - I used the snowy print instead of the light strings - and used red enamel gems as my embellishments instead of the green Beary Christmas dots as I have a LOT of those in my stash.

It works!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Hi folks,

Just sharing another Christmas card using the Beary Christmas papers from CTMH.

In case you are wondering, I used the Beary Christmas Cardmaking Stamp and Thin Cuts set to make the wreath and sentiment on this card. This card comes together very quickly. It's based on one of the optional cards you can make with the WYW Beary Christmas Scrapbooking Kit.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
