Hello everyone! It’s Kelly Klapstein here today. I thought for December I would change things up a bit and design a card sketch for the Sketchy Challenge, hoping that everyone would enjoy making Christmas cards. Here is my card: I used Creative Memories papers, Border Punch System and pen. With the leftover confetti bits from the border punch, I added them as ‘snowball’ embellishments. I used the Creative Memories marker to doodle on the 3 white triangle trees and to write my sentiment “let it snow.” Here are some samples of more cards that my friends made last weekend using the sketch: As you can see, the creative possibilities for this card sketch are limitless! I hope you join in the fun… because we will also be featuring many of your Christmas cards on Facebook and Instagram too! Remember to upload all your cards and layouts to the Sketchy Gallery!…

Are you feeling merry today? Well, it’s November now and you might as well get used to the Christmas jingles and décor every way you look. For me, the Christmas season doesn’t start until a certain coffee shop releases their holiday cups… That’s right. I get giddy inside and I instantly want to hoard keep my first empty cup in order to scrapbook it later. I am immediately ready to tackle the season head on while I fill up my planner with parties and traditions. It’s pretty much the most exciting time of the year! Isn’t that right? Fa La La La La! You should be singing Fa La La La La, if you noticed how the branches of the tree were raised in the photo above. That’s right, its an amazing framelit from Stampin’ Up! that coordinates with the Peaceful Pines stamp set. Quite easy and quite amazing. Christmas…
