Hi, Connie Nichol here today with a selection of shimmery foiled Christmas cards I made with Therm O Web Foil-Mates and Fancy Foils from Gina K Designs. I am new to the idea of foiling, and I have to tell you that I am in LOVE. Although I was initially intimidated by the idea, it is so simple to create these beautiful cards. You just place the foil of your choice over a pre-printed toner sheet (the Foil-Mates), run it through a laminator and the magic happens. Here are a few cards that I whipped up – once you start laminating foils onto patterns, it’s hard to stop! Just add a bit of ribbon or a couple of flowers and you’re good to go. You can even use the used foil for a card background as I did in the last card. The used foils are too pretty to throw…

Hi everyone! Noreen Smith here from OrganizedandCreativeMom.com. We’re halfway into November but I’m 100% into Christmas crafting right now and working on Christmas Cards! Today I want to show you how I got all my cards done quickly and easily using the… Creative Memories awesome All That Glitters Card Kit has everything you’ll need to create twelve beautiful 5” x 7” cards – the card bases and envelopes, pre-cut embellishment pieces (as well as 170 BONUS pieces!), 26’ of gold glitter tape, a sheet of enamel stickers, and an instruction sheet, all packed in a lovely gift box!

Happy November Friends! How sweet are these little snowmen? It won’t be long before I am making snowmen in my backyard with my little ones. The Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! is the perfect stamp set if you are looking to create a set of cards. It has a great combination of images and sentiments. But best of all… is that it’s simply super cute.  Stampin‘ Up! has a Snowflake Snowcase during the month of November and these Snowfall Thinlet Dies are part of this suite. It features 19 dies with snowflakes ranging from small to big; however, my favourite has to be the large size snowflake. How gorgeous is that?  These snowflakes are perfectly paired with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. This embossing folder gives the illusion of snow falling onto the ground. You can catch me using this snowflake and embossing folder combination throughout the whole…

Ok. Don’t get too upset with me. I know most of you aren’t ready to be thinking about candy canes or the Sugar Plum Fairy, not to mention the dreaded ‘s’ word.  (Shhh… it’s snow.) But Stampin’ Up! is releasing their Holiday Catalogue tomorrow. That’s September 5th. And well. I cannot help but share some of the cute items inside! Let’s start with this simple watercolour card showing off that beautiful deer. I mean. How gorgeous is that? You can create tags with this little guy alone. Stamp “To: and From:” on the back, add a little string and you’ve got yourself a holiday tag! You can find these die cuts and coordinating stamps from the Dashing Deer Bundle. The next two cards are a slightly stepped up version of the clean and simple card above; however, it includes pieces of patterned paper from the “you gotta see it, to believe…

Welcome to the  Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog today.  Its Karan Gerber and I thought I would share a Christmas Card with you using some products from Heartfelt Creations My card is designed using the O Holy Night collection which was released last month. The mini poinsettias and leaves along with that delicate holly branch are from last year, but still one of my favorites go-to’s when doing Christmas Cards. So let’s get started. First, we will need to cut our papers, the card base is a 6×12 folded in half; the dark green is 5.75 x 5.75.  I like the border the white automatically creates, if you prefer to have the green go to the full 6×6, that would look lovely too. The red is 5.25 x 5.25 and the wood looking paper is cut from the reverse of the center of this one and measures 5×5. Using the Ornament Die set from Heartfelt;…

Deck the Halls with Christmas Sweaters by Cathy Caines The holiday season is upon us and I am in full swing. I am so ready for the magic of Christmas and all the simple joys it brings as I enjoy the wonder of the season through the eyes of my children Jane (7) and Jack (5). I am wishing you and your families the very best this holiday season – from my family to yours. About a month ago Stampin’ Up! released their new line of alcohol markers called Stampin’ Blends. Ever since the release, I have been coloring just about everything. However, the Stampin’ Up! Christmas Sweaters stamp set is by far my favourite. The markers seem to bring the sweaters to life.Before making any projects, I coloured several of the images while catching up on The Americans TV show. Once I found myself back in my craft room,…
