My Creative Scrapbook Christmas!

I hope you're all having a wonderful holiday season! To help you celebrate, My Creative Scrapbook has put together an amazing line-up of gorgeous kits. I was fortunate to play around with the LE Kit and here are some of my creations...

This kit features the Turtle Dove collection by Kaisercraft along with some stunning embellishments. These papers were just so easy to work with! Here's another layout...

I also altered a little gift card tin.

In addition to these projects, I created another layout that I'll be sharing in my next post along with a video tutorial. Until then, here's a picture of the whole kit, isn't it amazing?!
Don't forget to visit My Creative Scrapbook, the gallery is just bursting with holiday projects for your inspiration.

Thanks so much for visiting today, have a great week!

Step By Step Saturday with Glitz Design

Good morning and happy December! With the holiday season in full swing, I thought I'd share some ideas in card-aking for my step-by-step assignment today over at the Glitz blog. Let me show you how to create this quick and easy Christmas card!

1. Start by inking your card base. I used a cream cardstock base. 

2.  Cut and distress a piece of the Banner paper and adhere it with the burlap side up. I normally don’t measure, just cut a quarter of an inch smaller than the card. 
3.  Next, cut and distress a smaller piece of the same paper, this time, let the burgundy side show. 
4.  Add one more layer of Santa pattern paper.

5.  Cut a strip of the Banner paper and punch one side of it, then adhere on the bottom of your card. 
6.  Tuck a piece of ribbon on the left side of your card. My ribbon happens to coordinate beautifully with the Banner paper and it also has a gold trim.

1.  Finish with a piece of burlap, an element from the Whatnots pack, and some flowers.
I also decided to add a couple of Giant Rhinestones. Here's a closer look...

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Have fun creating holiday cards and projects!
