In the craziness that leads up to the holidays, I found myself short a few Christmas cards. Since the kids' sports schedules are still going strong (meaning I spend a lot of time at courts and rinks, sitting for 2 hours, which doesn't include the time needed for commuting), I am needing to make every minute 'til Christmas count. So I decided that my little gluebook project had to make way for my Christmas card project.... the gluebook ingredients in my vintage train case were replaced with selected scraps of holiday paper, vintage sheet music, a single stamp, a pair of decorative scissors, two punches, and three inkpads (everything but the partridge in the pear tree, LOL). Oh, and card bases and a glue stick, of course. I also loaded up a little mini guillotine-style paper cutter. I was all set to mass-produce a few cards. :)
I used a stamp from Stamp Francisco, and papers from a My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas 6x6 pad, along with some scraps. Once I got the general layout figured out, these were a snap to put together. When I got them home, I added a little platinum Stickles (gotta have some bling for the holidays!). Sorta kinda like gluebook pages on a 4 x 5 inch scale, LOL! Here are a few others that haven't been sent yet.... all the same, but all a little different.
Hope you are all catching up on all of those holiday errands. I'm still swamped.... looking forward to Christmas Eve, when all is quiet and we all just sit and enjoy family. Happy Monday. :)
