My Christmas Cards

I decided maybe it was time to have a blog under my own name that I could add all sorts of stuff to, not just Quietfire things.

Here is my first post!

I'm usually so crazy busy in the fall, that I never seem to have time to relax and play and try something new. Just before Christmas I was in Michaels and spotted this punch set (Martha Stewart) and packages of K&Company paper frames. The paper frames were cardstock and printed on both sides which made for a perfect card! I wanted to use the Quietfire Textured Holiday Words, so I picked up some of the coordinating K&Company labels.

With a bit of punching (more on some depending on the designs and the colour of the inside!) and coordinating of the labels, these came out not too badly. I think I cranked out 114 of them. It turned out not to be the epic it sometimes is! I'm still thinking I might purchase my cards next year....

Here are some samples!

Thanks for looking!
