Christmas Planner

So here is the Christmas organizer that has been floating around everywhere. I'm not sure which site I used for the tutorial, but I've seen them everywhere. It's super simple to make, and quite useful too!! And all the lists are free for download from Christmas Planner. You really should make one because they are super cute. Mine is a bit bulky because I used foam decorations, which I wouldn't reccommend using. But I'm still pleased.

Traditional Christmas Cards

Here are a few Traditional color Christmas cards. They are a little plain looking, so I think they will be more "manly" The middle one with the snowglobe is for my brother, I think I need to bling it up a little with some sparkles or something around the globe.

New Technique

Or for me anyways. I've been seeing people using cardboard as backgrounds lately and I figured I needed to give it a try. I actually REALLY like the look.

This LO is for my moms wedding album that I'm trying to complete before Christmas. I used the sketch at Creative Scrappers and I also submitted it over at the Sisterhood of Scrap for their weekly challenge. This week it was to create something SWEET. Well of course I think that my mom getting married for the first time is very sweet.

Hope everyone is doing well! And leave me a comment if you happen to drop by. I LOVE reading them!!!!!
