Crafting all the way ♪

December 18, 2010

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas, With every Christmas card I write make. May your days be merry and bright, And may all your Christmases be white.

One of my favourite  Christmas activities of the holiday season are making my own personalized cards! I love mixing up scrapbook paper and using my trusty martha stewart pen for the font. My favourite is the snowman one I did last year – isn’t he a cutie! Check out his rosy cheeks! Everything is handcut – even the little ornaments on the trees!  I’m boycotting Silhouette… acutally no, I’m just too cheap! Tell me which one(s) are your favourites? Last year I was able to sell some, so I don’t have too many to show for, but I had about 5-6 of each. The new ones that I did this year are the striped “merry christmas” ones with the plaid heart & button – all the rest are last year’s.  The silly one was a card I made for my twin – I forget what I wrote in the bubble though…Hope you guys like ’em! :) One of my dreams is to open up an Etsy shop (before my boutique of course…babysteps!)  – would you guys buy from me?

Don’t be afraid to experiement with things – rip paper, mix patterns, make your own stickers, etc. ps: I love how your blog is written in spanish – maybe I’ll learn more spanish through your blog haha. :)
