are the wonderful people who make them!

Every year Canadian Scrapbooker makes around 300 Christmas cards to send to all the wonderful people we work with. Creating one is super duper fun – reproducing 299 of them can be a challenge! I am soooooooooooo lucky to have the help of my family!  Christoph is a fantastic stamper! He stamped out 600 poinsettias using a Frog’s Whiskers Ink stamp and Clearsnap pigment ink!

My Dad is also a scrapbooker at heart!  This year he helped my mom cut out all the poinsettias and adhered them to the fronts of all the cards!

My Mom did so much on these cards and I never took one single picture!!!!!!!!!!!  Sorry Mom!

The inspiration for this card came from the very talented Cathie Allan

Cathie used the same stamp to create the flowers on this layout of her beautiful daughter!  When I saw the flowers I instantly fell in love and used Cathie’s concept on our Christmas cards!  Thank you Cathie! If you want to see more ideas using this stamp be sure to check out page 112 of our Winter 2010 issue.  We will also be posting a few more ideas on our website shortly – STAY TUNED!

Merry Christmas Everyone!

  4. Love the cards – they are beautiful and much more time consuming than the 50 or so Christmas cards that I mass-produce!
