The last of the 2017 Christmas cards.

Hi folks,

Yes, I still have a few 2017 Christmas cards to share so what the heck - I'll toss them all into this post to wrap up the year.

The images are all from The Greeting Farm while the papers are a mix.

I believe the snowflake paper on this first one is from American Crafts and the red glitter paper is from CTMH.



The silver glitter paper on this one is from CTMH and the patterned paper is from Stampin' Up (Quilted Christmas).


This one also uses papers from the Stampin' Up Quilted Christmas collection.


As does this one - again, the silver glitter paper is CTMH.


Well, that's a wrap for me on my 2017 Christmas cards!

As always, thanks for stopping by!

Merriest Wishes

Hi folks,

This year I broke with tradition and actually took the days between Christmas and New Year off from work.

I'm hoping to get in a bit of paper-crafting (for the January birthdays) but for now I am still sharing Christmas cards.

These are my take on the cards you can make using the supplies in the CTMH Merriest Wishes card-making kit.

Joyful Tidings

Hi folks,

I know Christmas is officially over but I do still have cards to share.

These are my cards using the CTMH "Joyful Tidings" card making kit. I like to use different sentiments on my cards so that they are all different, even if the layout is the same.




As always - thanks for stopping by!

Silvery Snowy Wishes

Hi folks,

Back again today to share more of my cards I made with the CTMH Silver & Gold PML cards.

This time it's the silver version.






These cards were inspired by those shared by the fabulously creative Julie Carriere.

Golden Christmas Wishes

Hi folks,

Just popping in to share some cards I made using the CTMH Silver & Gold PML cards.

These are my gold cards. I paired up the gold PML cards with kraft card stock. I quite liked the look.

Merry Everything!

Hi folks,

Phew - I was so happy this year that I picked up two of the CTMH Cut Above Merry Everything Card Kits. Twenty Christmas cards that came together in a flash. Perfect for procrastinators like me who are still wondering where the card-making mojo has disappeared!



As always, thanks for stopping by!

Silver and Gold Christmas Trio

Hi folks,

Back today to share a few more cards I made at the pajama crop back in November. For these I used the Silver and Gold paper collection from CTMH.




I wasn't thrilled with the grey card on the left so I made another sample with the red card stock. I liked that version a bit more so, in the end, I went with making a few more of that style. I'll share those on another day.


As always, thanks for stopping by!

Even more cards from the PJ Crop

Hi folks,

I'm back today to share even more cards I started at the PJ crop (and finished up the next day at home).

The card bases are from a Stampin' Up Kit - the sentiments are all CTMH. Who says you can't combine products from different companies!






At this time of year I'm a BIG fan of kits for helping me get through the bulk Christmas card makes, especially when my crafty mojo goes off on a walkabout. Well, kind of. I've gotten caught up in some quilting projects of late and the paper-crafting has taken a bit of a back-seat.

I always promise myself that I'm going to make Christmas cards all year long but I invariably fall off the wagon and have to rush through making them in November and December.

Anyways, more to come in the next few days!

Thanks for stopping by!

Has it been a month already?

Hi folks,

Well, I haven't completely fallen off the crafty map in the last month. I've been busy with a bunch of different things which I hope I can finally get around to sharing before year's end.

Let's see - the last thing I shared was the cards I made for the Christmas card exchange at the annual Pajama Crop at Algonquin College here in Ottawa.

Well, that night I, of course, made more cards!!!

These are cards that I donated to the Ronald McDonald card drive that we also do at the crop every year. For every card you donate, you get an entry for a lovely prize from the crop organizer.  I'm hoping these punny cards make whoever receives them smile.



These are from the Operation Smile Punny Pals promo that CTMH was running earlier this year. I just adapted them to be regular 4.25 x 5.5 cards instead of the 3 x 3 cards from the kit. Did you know that now, in addition to the stamp set there is a perfectly coordinated set of Thin Cuts dies for the critters? Love it!

Here's some close-ups of the four pairs of cards. Click on them to read the punny sentiments.







That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by!
