Oh I am SO in the Christmas spirit! I want to just share so much with all of you.

So I bit the bullet and decided to do a few PERSONAL gift sets! I did 4 sets of monogram cards. There are 6 cards in each set, with stamped matching envelopes. I feel for some “special” people, something a TAD more involved was in order.

So this is what I did!

monogram sets

I used my rectangle  Nestablilites for the scalloped layer, as well as the embossed straight edge of the stamped layer.

I basically did a One Sheet Wonder, then did the cutting of dies.

I used Jolies Fleurs for the stamped layer, Celebration Frames for the scallop punched circle, and Olivia alpha for the monogram- all found —–>HERE or HERE.

Tied at the top with some simple ribbon. I was really going for a personal gift, that can be used for any occasion. I felt these notecards were clean, and simple, yet elegant. I made the 4 sets while watching Regis and Kelly, and an episode of Martha Stewart-then part of The View. In short these 24 card sets took me some time, but were well worth the effort. I hate mass producing so was way DONE!!!

The layering, scallops, and embossing are a real WOW in person. Plus they are very dimensional, which doesn’t show in the box!

A little while ago I posted an ornament for the Paper Craft’s Festival of Tree’s—->here. I said I would be making another one in its place, due to the fact it looked like a turnip :C I definitely felt this one was worthy. They seemed excited to accept it as well. I cannot wait to see what the tree ends up looking like.

I bought this clear ornament at Michaels, last year on clearance for 0.10 cents! YEAH!!!

The color scheme had to be red and turquoise.

I stamped my snowman from Christmas in the City , in StazOn on clear polyshrink. Colored with myCopic markers, then shrunk him down 😀

I used the Holiday Cheer set, stamped in red 3 seperate times, then punched out with my Giga Scallop circle, center cut out with my Coluzzle. I adhered the 3 circles together, and put my snowman charm hanging from the center.

I placed them in the snowball, with some Martha Stewart winter white glitter in the bottom! Looks just like shimmery snow.

Next up I haver a Christmas card using the same Holiday Cheer set.

The circle sentiment is stamped on the vellum layer in white. That paper underneath is Martha Stewart wrapping paper!!! I LOVED it, and yes it was on clearance.

This card was super duper fast too!! I love solid images. You can really just FLY through a project with them. This set is a really cool one IMO 😀

I’m waiting for some NEW goodies to arrive-crossing my finger’s today is the day.

There are some FAB new releases coming from MFT too!!! But those have to wait till December to share :C

One particular set is ROCKIN!! I have some awesome stuff I did for Christmas gifts but can’t share till Feb!!!
