Presents & Pinecones Christmas Card


Are you thinking about Christmas yet?  Well, if you are thinking about making your own cards, you probably should be :).  For today’s card, I used the Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper, the Tin Of Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set, the Merry Tags Framelits Dies, the Cheerful Tags Framelits Dies, and the Project Life Corner Punch.  The colors in this paper pack are Cherry Cobbler, Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso, Emerald Envy, Mint Macaron, Whisper White.  I was out of town when I made this card and I did not have the Cherry Cobbler Ink to stamp the sentiment with, so I used Real Red instead.  Since I was stamping on colored paper, it looks darker and blends in with the Cherry Cobbler in the paper (I know the paper looks like Real Red in the pictures but it is Cherry Cobbler).

Project Life-Trip to Mt. Dora with Good Vibes


I started scrapbooking about 15 years ago and, as much as I loved the finished pages (most of the time :)), I found the process really time consuming.  I was looking for supplies and ideas online one day and came across a video made by a scrapbooker, showing how she used her scraps to make cards.  Whaaat?!  That video changed everything for me.  I fell madly in love with all things related to cardmaking  and scrapbooking fell by the wayside… until I found Project Life.  I have made a few layouts with my Stampin’ Up! card sets and embellishment packs and have decided to start sharing my Project Life layouts with you.
