The little puppy is part of 1 sheet of Beef Broth patterned paper by Jillibean Soup. They are quality cardstock with such fun sentiments.

By Cards


Hi all,

It’s Christmas EVE! Can you believe it? I am so excited for this upcoming holiday season to begin. I wish each and every one of my readers a very Merry Christmas & hope you have a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. But before I go on my holiday hiatus, I want to share the last of my gift card holders. I love this paper stack I’ve been using for the card series from DCWV. The designs are so subtle yet the perfect touch to these designs. The sentiment is a free SVG from SVGcuts.com.

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

Christmas Card Using Acetate Sentiment

By Cards

Oh What Fun

It’s almost Christmas time! I’m getting into the spirit of the holidays and wanted to share a holiday card I made. It is a very easy to make and has great detail. I recently discovered acetate embellishment packs at my local craft store. This pack had beautiful vintage style prints on the clear plastic material. To adhere the pieces down I used some liquid glue on just the parts that had print on them (so the glue wouldn’t show through the clear parts). I couldn’t believe how quickly a card could come together using this type of embellishment! How fun!

As I am getting more and more into cardmaking it is becoming clear that I need to invest into some better quality materials to work with. I especially feel the need to invest into some thicker cardstock than I am currently using. These last few weeks of creating have me feeling so inspired!
