Wishing you all a wonderful Happy Thanksgiving Day with family and friends.
Finally, here's my final Christmas card. This year, my major "projects" were making items to donate for a craft fair with proceeds going to the American Cancer Society, making lots of Christmas cards, and coaster calendars to include with my holiday cards. That meant a bit of planning was in order. In April and May, I worked on my donation crafts, June thru mid-Sept. were spent making the majority of my Christmas cards, and mid-Sept. thru November making coaster calendars. My final set of cards posted here, were made a few weeks ago after Dandelion Designs released this sweet "must-have" stamp set called Teeny Weeny Christmas which I got at Ben Franklin Crafts. Cute yah? Totally irresistible.
After I decide on a design/layout, I cut all the pieces and inked them up with Copics. The circular scene and all those little snowmen cuties were fun (not fussy) cut. I call that therapy.....LOL. And now that I know Leanne loves to "fun" cut too, I always think of her when cutting images. Hee-hee. Just curious, is there any one else who enjoys cutting?
And here are 6 of them. The sentiment is by and from Island Scrapbooking. And did you know you can now purchase them by email or by phone? Click here to see the samples and ordering info.
I made a bunch of envelopes with the envelope punch board which I purchased at Ben Franklin Crafts. GOOD STUFF!!! Envelopes can be quite expensive and being a bit frugal, I bought a ream of 11" x 17" copy paper from OfficeMax when they had their 20% off bag sale a couple of months ago. I used them to make envelopes for my 5" x 7" cards because the sheets need to be cut into a
9 1/2" square. Letter-size paper is too small. I believe I paid less than $20.00 for a ream. That's a steal of a deal to be able to make 500 envelopes for under 20 bucks. Plus, with the extra part I cut off, I could make 500 smaller envelopes. Woo-hoo.

Snowflake Corner by Memory Box from Island Scrapbooking
