More simple Holiday cards

I’m back with more simple Holiday cards. Trying to keep these easy and using up the stash of endless Holiday stickers, die cuts and paper that I have!

I’m still in love with the Simon Says Stamp intricate die cuts – especially these sentiments. They are gorgeous. I have had these dimensional stickers sitting in my drawers for years – I believe they were from K & Co. long ago:

These next few use some old adorable felt stickers – not sure what brand they are, but they make for stunning embellishments on cards. I simply used more of the Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle dies to give these simple white cards more interest:Holiday Cards Holiday Cards Holiday Cards

Back to some more cards with the ornament stickers. Here I used stitched circle dies from Memory Box, too.

Hope you all are getting into Holiday crafting mode! I was thinking about years past where I was in full-on craft fair mode during this time. These days, I just don’t have the time to craft for fairs like I used to. But one day, I will get back to it!

Some Holiday cards

Just sharing a few Holiday cards that I’ve been making. Now is the time to start cranking out those Christmas cards!

This first one was a fun one to make. I was playing around a lot with Distress Inks and water. Really love the effects you can get with this ink. The rest of the card is all Simon Says Stamp dies.

Holiday Greeting Cards

These next few were pretty clean and simple. Just looking to use up some snowflake stickers that I’ve had for ages. I also used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Dies on every card. I just love the finished look they give. These are one of my most favorite dies right now! I have both sizes and I love them.

These cards were fun to make, but those intricate dies are something else to adhere. I need to get me some spray adhesive, or that “stick-it” product. I just ordered some, in fact :)

4th of July Layouts using Bella Blvd

I really love the 4th of July – and I really love the patterns and papers from Bella Blvd! I decided to use some patterned papers and stickers I had from the Bella Blvd All American collection┬áto create some 4th of July themed layouts. I did not have the full collection pack, just a few sheets of paper and some stickers – but I was still able to bust out 2 full layouts, which was great! And again, I’ve been putting a dent in my already large stash of scrapbook paper – which is always good.

This first one is called “my most favorite” – talking about how the 4th is truly my most favorite Holiday!

and the second one – “Star Spangled Cuties”. I did add in some other embellishments and stickers from my stash, but for the most part it’s all from the same collection. These photos are from last year, when all of our normal 4th festivities were rained out – but we got to ride in a local parade on the 5th instead. Brooke and her friend had a great time!

8.5″x11″ Layout: Everyday Moments

Everyday Moments Layout

Using up more of my stash with this layout. I have had this paper sitting for SO long and I’ve finally decided to use it. I also have had this layout pinned on Pinterest for quite some time – so this is totally a scraplifted page :)

These photos were ones that I casually took with my phone this past winter while the kids and I were just sitting around, playing in pajamas on a regular weekday morning. I love these simple moments and want to document them!

I stamped along the rounded edge of the viewfinder film using some Ali Edwards stamps
(love the stamps she makes for scrapbooking!) I also love that they are clear and bend easily to any shape you want.

Some more Ali Edwards stamping on these labels that I tucked above the pics.
