Merry Christmas Cards for Lemoncraft and Happy New Year!

Hello, everyone and happy New Year's Eve!! I hope you have fun plans to ring in the new year :) How can it be 2018 already?? For my final post of the year, I have a few last Christmas cards to share with you, featuring papers from Lemoncraft. This will be my last post for the Lemoncraft DT. I have truly enjoyed showcasing the gorgeous papers this last year - and I will still be selling them in my ETSY store so you can pick up these beautiful papers anytime :)


For the first two cards, I used 12x12 papers from The Christmas Carols Collection and sheets from the Christmas Carols Ephemera Cards. The images are from the Vintage Time 013 Sheet.





For my second set of cards, I also used papers from the Christmas Carols collection,  the Christmas Carols Ephemera Cards and images from the Vintage Time 013 Sheet.




I still have family visiting for the holidays but once they leave, I'll be by to visit you and catch up on all the projects I've missed!! Happy New Year!!

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are getting ready for the holidays...they're almost here!! I'm taking a short blog break, so this is a scheduled post.

You could be one of two winners of a $10 gift certificate to shop at Scrapy Land.


Several members of the design team participated in a Christmas card exchange and I drew my dear sweet, long-time friend Sherrie of Sherrie Scraps With Passion!! I created this card / Christmas ornament for Sherrie using papers from Maja Designs.


I layered Sizzex Tim Holtz Tree Line dies in the background. The poinsettias are Sizzix Pillow Box Poinsettia dies, with stamens from Wild Orchid Crafts. Tucked under the flowers are Impression Obsession Pine Branches and Impression Obsession Pine Sprigs.


A Memory Box Snowflake Swell die was added to the bottom half of the card. The sentiment is from Altenew and it was stamped on a Sue Wilson Pierced Flag die. I added Prills for texture.


A Memory Box Snowflake Wire was adhered over the lace. The base of the ornament is a Spellbinders Star die. Memory Box Star of Wonder dies were covered with glitter and added to both the card and ornament.
