Hey all my name is Samantha, I'm 32 from England. Engaged. I have been handcrafting cards since I can remember from making mothers day cards at nursery to selling them to friends and family now. I love seeing the reactions on peoples faces when you make a unique handcrafted card just for them. I have also been a keen scrapbooker/photographer since I was about 5 when my parents started to foster and I always kept a scrapbook for each child we cared for - which goes with them to their new families so they don’t forget any precious memories of their childhood.

Christmas Cards

Its my birthday today and I was off work so I thought since I wasnt doing anything I would start making my christmas cards.

The first card I made was a decoupage easil card.


I used:
Cream Card Stock
Christmas Green Card Stock
Vintage 3D Decoupage Holly Paper by Search Press
A piece of scrap Gold embossed paper
Gold "Merry Christmas" E-Z Rub on Transfer
"Wishing you a Merry Christmas" Studio G Clear Stamps
Plastic Dress it up Holly button.

The holly was very tricky to cut out I havent used decoupage for a while and I forgot how fiddly it was not sure if I will be making another one like this unless its simpler to cut out or a pre cut sheet!!
The card turned out all ok apart from I put the sheet on the green a little wonkey!


The 2nd Card I made I used a Paper Piecing Technique which I saw on Scrapbooks etc website

Mine card is pretty much the same apart from I used a different shape card and different coloured card.

The only problem with this card is all the weight is on one side so when it stands up it wants to roll the side because all the weight is on the birds side.

I used alot of paper scraps on this card.
Baby blue polka dot paper
Christmas Green Card
White Card Stock
Cream Card Stock
Kraft Card Stock
Red Buttons
Olive Silk Ribbon
Bronze Brad
Recollections - "Happy Holidays" Rubber Stamp
Black and Brown Ink



The Paper-Piecing Pattern and many many more here

2 Weeks till I go to Florida I cant wait my suitcase is almost empty so I have extra room for bringing craft stuff home :-)  I cant wait I am also hoping to get a flip cam while I am there so I will be adding videos to my YouTube account of the Haulls I will be doing over there!!

Take Care all
Love me x
