I made about 50 Christmas cards this year, here is a selection of them :
Here is my scrap table after I finished making all the cards :
So we all have messy desks after a project, right? Please do not disillusion me if that is not your case!! We all hate the cleaning up part, right? Except for my cat Chopin that is (you can see his paws up in the right hand corner LOL) who loves playing in the leftovers, but usually just makes the mess messier LOL. And finally, cleaning up that mess takes away from valuable crafting time, does it not? So what's a crafter to do??
TURN THAT MESS INTO 3 X 4 CARDS FOR OUR DECEMBER DOCUMENTED ALBUMS !!!
I did not buy anything this year for my album, used only things I had in my stash (the Scraptastic December kit will be Christmas themed, but it may not get here in time for me to use it in the album). I am using a 6 X 8 album, with pocketed pages but did not have a single 3 X 4, or 4 X 6, Christmas/winter themed card. So I cleaned my desk :
As I was making these cards, I thought of three different categories of cards that I would use in my album, and that I could make ahead of time :
- date and event specific
- event specific, but no date
- generic filler cards
