CHRISTMAS CARD!!!

Welcome back fellow crafters!! I haven't been able to post in a bit as work and my schedule have been NUTS!!! Retail...YAY!! I miss my weekly design team projects for Regina at The Cutting Cafe! But I'll be back soon as I made it back on her design team!!! YAAAY!!!!!!!

In the meantime I wanted to share the Christmas cards I sent out this year! They are super cute! I was having a hard time figuring out what to do for my very first hand-made Christmas card. I was pinning like crazy looking for just the right card. Then I got my issue of Paper Crafts Magazine and right on the cover was the card! Check it out!


SUPER CUTE RIGHT!?! I just LOVE it!!! If you get paper Crafts magazine it's on pg. 36 of the digital issue!! I had soo much fun with this! 


The file for the typewriter is a Silhouette file. I didn't have one of those machines but I was playing around and figured out how to convert it so I could use it in SCAL. Man was that a headache!!!!  So on black friday I got a Silhouette machine so I'm able to use their files too! YAY!!

The sentiment on the inside is from Unity Stamps. I just found their site and I LOVE their stuff!!!


I always hate writing in my cards as I feel like my chicken scratch ruins the card! But someone told me that it's more personal so I do it; and I always sign the back of my cards.


I had sooo much fun making this card and I love the response from the people who I sent them too! Makes me feel like I made the right choice!! Here's one more look!


Hope you enjoy!!! Merry Christmas everyone!!!!!

  2. Hi Sean. I missed you the last couple of weeks with The Cutting Cafe design team projects. I just thought I would check out your site and see what you were up to. Retail...been there, done that! Ugh! Anyway I love the card you made to send out. Also, I wanted to congratulate you on your second term of the DT. Sadly, my second term is over this month. I will sure miss you guys, but I promise I will continue to "stay in touch". I will be checking out all of the great projects that everyone will be doing in 2014. Hopefully, I will be able to come back next term! Merry Christmas.

    1. Tee, I sure hope I'll love it! I haven't messed with it yet but I have payed on the software be it's kind of confusing. But I felt the same way about my Cricut when I first got it and SCAL2 but I love those. Thanks for the compliment on my card I'm really happy with how it turned out! Looking forward to being on he team with you too! Talk to you soon!!! Happy New Year!!
