Christmas Cards

In my earlier post today I said I was going to work on the photocard that we would send out with our family photo on it. Well…I got sidetracked and decided to play with paper and glue instead of jpegs and pixels and made some “regular” Christmas cards!

In October I took a class at BPS called Giving Well. The instructor was Kolette Hall who is a stamp and product designer for Hampton Art (you probably have some of her designs if you have ever shopped the dollar stamp bin at Michael’s!) Besides giving us 14 great gift idea projects during the class, she also provided us with designs to use on tags and cards. I used the card designs today to make these cards:

These are very different cards for me…usually I spend time designing one or two cards and then make several more identical ones. This time I made fourteen different cards using the same materials. Each one was trial and error and I just did whatever I felt looked good with each of the little templates from Kolette. It was fun to not have a plan for a change! In addition to a few pieces of 8.5 x 11 cardstock and 2 sheets of 12 x 12 double sided paper I also used some brads, ribbons and buttons I had in my stash, so this was a very inexpensive project!
I think I’ll work on the digital photocards tomorrow!
Happy Scrapping!
OH…I also changed the template on my blog to three columns using instructions and HTML code from this blog. There was lots of good info – check it out!
