Christmas is All Wrapped Up

I have a hard time scrapping Christmas photos. I mean it is usually the same type pictures over and over again. Not only that, but I am picky with what kind of Christmas paper I like. In fact, I would rather use something that is not Christmas and make it Christmassy….if that makes any sense. Well, this year I just did not have any creative juices (or maybe it was time). Anyways, I cheated and I bought the “Workshop on the Go” by Close to My Heart (I sell it…to myself more so…but regardless…if you like it, hit me up).Like I was saying, this is the Close to My Heart “Workshop on the Go” Christmas themed pack. It came with almost everything you will see in the photos (I added the black CS, felt tag holders and tags, thickers, card bases, clear card, and card box) Did I mention it came with the cute stamp set?!?!?! Not to mention that, but it gave me a  2 two page LO sketches so it made scrapping super easy.
This first LO I actually used the scraps from the kit. It was the last LO I completed.  I came up with the sketch for the LO all by my lil’ ole’ self 🙂 I am really trying to tap into my creative side and get back to crafting, so I started a “sketch” section in my “Smash” book. That is where I created this sketch.
 

 This is one of the cards I made to go in the card box. I did use my CB to add texture to it. Have I mentioned how much I love CTMH flat white core cardstock? Look how awesome that looks!!!!

 This was one of the LO suggestions that came with the WOTG. I modified it slightly in that instead of making mattes for the two pictures on the top of the LO, I created two pockets on my Cricut. I have a total of about 12 pictures in the pockets. I also used the pattern feature on my new Cricut and came up with my own pattern paper. I did not want to to matchy matchy, but it is cute 🙂

 Some more cards I made with the left overs for the card box.

 This is my favorite card…well….my favorite clear card I have made in a while. I had one pesky clear card left in my stash. I found this cute sketch in the “Wishes” book my CTMH and I modified it to my products I had left. I then pulled out my Copic Marker and gave some life to Santa 🙂

 This was the first LO I made with the kit. The title is from my stash and I used puffy stuff for Santa 🙂 I usually do not like white as a background, but on this I love it!

 A few more close ups of cards for the card box….

 The complete card box set. The add on project for the WOTG was for four cards, but I was able to make a few more. I might give this as a gift to my mom. She always ask me for hand made cards to give out, but I don’t want to give them to her for Christmas so I am thinking her birthday….I know that is weird, but if I give them to her at Christmas she has to wait an entire year to use them, right? Or maybe I will just give it to her as a thank you gift for the gifts she sent us now 🙂

Thanks for sneaking a peak. Stay tuned because next time I am going to share with you an amazing “Rock the Block” set I made for my family. It is a puzzle block set that is so much fun and the kids are addicted too!

  1. Fun colours, cool idea to have the pocket for all the extra photos.You could always make a few blank or birthday cards and give 'em all to your Mom for her birthday. Always a useful gift.
