Back after Christmas Celebrations

Hi folks! I hope you’ve had a magical Holiday and that you all have some nice plans for the upcoming New Years Eve. I’ve had my house full this past week, but I’ve also managed to sneak in some crafting time. One good way is to involve the guests… You’ll see what I mean further down this post. First I have a couple of cards to share. Tree Party Invitation

I’ve made 10 out of this first design, and we will use it for invitation to my son’s Christmas Tree Party next weekend. It involved quite some cutting, but the design is simple so it was kind of easy. My son choose the stamps himself and he is really pleased with how it turned out.  The stamps used are Gingerbread Background and Winter Fun Labrador and Kitty Set. I love this set, they are so cute, and I’ve found myself using it over and over again.

The second card is a celebration of the beautiful and fun snow! We’ve got plenty around here the last week, and we’ve had so much fun in it! Let it snow 3 On this one I’ve used the Baby it’s cold outside set. I stamped the snowman twice. First on the designer paper and then on white cardstock and cut it out and placed on 3d dots.

And now the “involve the guests in crafting” part. Do you remember the great tutorial of how to make a card file box that Lisa shared with us a couple of weeks back? You find the tutorial HERE. Well, my mum and mother in law saw the box I made and went nuts over it. PERFECT to store our cards, they said. And then we spent a couple of hours together in my scrap room making them boxes too. Here is the result:boxar They did great – didn’t they! With some help anybody can create these simple but beautiful boxes! I won’t be back until next year so I wish you all a Happy New Year!
