8 Cards | 1 Kit – Queen & Co. Happy Holly Days (Part 1 of 2)

Hello There,

My Christmas vacation has officially started today and while I’ve still got loads to do, it’s nice to know I’ll have a little extra time to do it in. I’m sharing some cards I made using Queen & Co’s Holly Day kit today. This was my first time using one of their kits and I loved it! It was so great having everything right there that I needed to make the shakers and you can get A LOT of cards made with this kit and I LOVE the stamp set that was included. Here is the first half of what I came up with:

12 Days of Christmas | Mama Elephant – Yeti Christmas

HELLOOOOO

This is going to be a super quick one! My days at work are getting crazier and crazier as the week goes by so who knows what tomorrow holds. I keep staying late and that pushes me later with my filming, wrapping, baking etc. But…next week I’m on VACATION and I’m so ready. Today I’m working with Mama Elephant’s Yeti stamps – these are super cute, I ordered them right away and have way more ideas of things to try, so this might end up being a Christmas series tradition…

For those of you who maybe just like to look at the photos below…you should check out the video today:  (hint hint)

And here are the stills:

He’s so cute!!

I’m seriously ready to put those snowflake sequins on everything – you’ll probably see them again this series.

That script font is to die for right?

It’s such a feeling of satisfaction when I can match an ink color with card stock so closely. Is anyone else obsessed with that?

12 Days of Christmas | Lawn Fawn Tiny Gift Box – Advent Calendar

Hello Hello…Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend!

I’m running late today, I was lazy last night and waited until today to film the video and now I’m impatiently waiting for YouTube to upload! So I’ve been wanting to dig into this die from the moment I got it, but I’m glad I was a bit delayed because when I got my SSS kit this month and saw the 25 days sheet of paper from Doodlebug I instantly knew I would use it for this advent calendar. I’m super happy with the result – You can check out the video here:

Here are some stills:

So cute – You can fill each box with a piece of candy, or a clue of where your little one can find a surprise hidden somewhere in the house! It would be really fun to combine with an elf on the shelf.

Those squares are a perfect fit – it’s like they were made for each other.

That bow was a little tricky because it is so tiny, but was so worth it!

And the Instagram winner is Abby!

Congratulations Abby – I’ve sent you a PM, please reply with your address and I’ll get your package in the mail.

Today is also the beginning of my 12 Days of Christmas Series…I’m working with some of the Pebbles Merry Merry line. I though this set was absolutely adorable! You can check out the video here:

Here are some close ups of the finished cards:

1 front

I LOOOVE this mason jar sticker! I always find that with the sticker/ephemera sets I find one or two things I want about 10 copies of.

1 close up

Those iridescent snowflakes are definitely one of my favorite buys this year. That jar is jam packed and will last for quite a while.

1 inside

A perfect sentiment to go with a snow-filled shaker window.

2 front

Over the river and through the woods…I’m still singing it in my head.

2 close up

The snowy windows on the car are a great touch – I hope you can see that accent, a bunch of these stickers have a beautiful, sparkly glitter texture added to them.

2 inside

Year after year I go back to these Mama Elephant sentiments – they are fantastic, I think they go with just about any type of card you want to make.

3 front

#3 is for sure my favorite. These elves – too cute for words.

3 close up

Don’t be afraid to cut into ephemera to alter it if it’s not exactly what you need. I often cut into stamps to change sentiments and then totally forget about it with embellishments.

3 inside

I’ve used my trusty SSS Envelope Liner die to cut out some additional papers from this pack to give those envelopes a little something special.

4 front

I love the home-spunny look of this card. I think it would be just perfect to add to a plate of cookies you’re giving to the neighbors.

4 close up

Do you like gingerbread cookies? We make them every year and I always think they smell so good, but I don’t really like the taste of them.

4 inside

Could there be a more perfect liner for that envelope?

5 fronrt

Super simple, just really easy and to the point.

5 close up

That little bough of flowers at the bottom of the globe is really cute. I kept looking for an extra piece of ephemera that I could pop up there but there were no small flowers, so I went with the holly sticker instead. I still might go back and add some nuvo drops, because I never know when to stop 🙂

5 inside

That blue floral paper – so gorgeous!

6 front

Again that blue paper…ahh. I really love the mix of adding that pink chart too. It’s really different, but I think it works.

6 close up

I’ve been doubling up jute for bows on a lot of my recent cards. I like the look of the separate strands.

6 inside

How great is that unexpected pop of icy blue?
