Merry Christmas Cards

Hi guys, I thought you may appreciate a post displaying my latest video from YouTube, showing how to make some Merry Christmas cards.

Shaker Christmas Cards

Hi guys, Christmas is coming and I have been making shaker Christmas cards.

I have just returned from vacation and therefore spent this last weekend organizing and creating.
Christmas is a wonderful time of the year.  I love making Christmas cards.  I smile when I see my children getting all excited too. My daughter gets as excited as I do, so I think I have passed on the Christmas spirit 🙂 merry-everything-shaker-deer-mft
My husband and I spent most of Sunday updating the postage card list and then writing them out. Of course, this was all done while listening to festive music, which my husband was not thrilled about! As we have a few items to be posted out to the UK, organization is key. Cards and parcels need to be ready to go by the end of November, if they stand any chance of them being delivered in time.

Usually it consists of treats like crafting goodies, colouring books, sweets and of course, their special Christmas Cards. This year I made 3 shaker cards which are in those parcels as I write. They are added to this post too so you can see them.

This week it is my intention to get a video downloaded and get my latest creations up on social media.

Well, I hope this week is a good one for you guys and remember, if you have any questions, you can comment below or you can fill out the contact form.

Bye for now, Cheryl 🙂

Happy Holidays

Hi Guys, I have posted a video on YouTube called Happy Holidays.

This is a demonstration showing how to make an easy Happy Holidays card using some MFT Stamps and Simon Says Stamp products. The MISTI comes in very handy for this one.


Lawn Fawn Weekend

Hi guys, I was lucky enough to get some free time and have a Lawn Fawn weekend.

I had recently purchased quite a few Lawn Fawn stamp sets from their latest release. I also got the exclusive stamp set for the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtmber,  called Happy Howlidays.trim-the-tree-lf

Of all the companies out there, I really gravitate towards Lawn Fawn when I think of making Christmas cards. I think it’s because the images are so cute, and they are really good at including little images so you can make many different scenes.

Keeping myself focused on one stamp company was really helpful because I have a very busy mind. Card making is certainly a real bonus in managing my mental health as it encourages me to stay focused and in the moment.

I hope this post inspires you to take some time out for yourself and create. Let me know what you think of the Lawn Fawn gallery below!

Bye for now, Cheryl 🙂
