Happy Festive crafting season!! Today I am on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with the Simple Stories Tis the Season collection! I absolutely love creating for the holiday season, from cards to home decor and of course documenting all the Holiday memories for my scrapbooks. I especially enjoy making Christmas cards, adding to my collection of all things Christmas all year long and coming up with new designs using all the gorgeous things!!
When I saw the Simple Stories Tis the Season collection, it really spoke to me!! The colours & images are gorgeous…I could easily use ALL the pieces in no time at all 😉
For this project, I wanted to create some cards along with a little box perfect for gift giving. I used the Sizzix XL Bigz Die – Eileen Hull Card Caddy to create this cute little box. I then created 8 different cards from the ’Tis the Season collection along with dies and an assortment of cardstock from Prism Studios. The 3×4 cut apart sheet is a great place to start creating cards as they allow for a great image to work with, then add layers of card stock, ephemera and all the pretty things! I also use a lot of foam adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L for some great dimension to all my projects. Simple Stories collections have all the things to create cards and layouts, & more in a snap! I love laying everything out and picking and choosing which pieces will work perfect for my projects..it’s the little things that make us happy 😉 Hope you find inspiration in this project and make some time for yourself to get your Craft On!!! If you ask me, its always time well spent, and everyone loves to receive hand made gifts 😉
Thank you for joining me on the Blog today! Til next time…
