Jingle all the way

This week I was able to send out some more Christmas cards overseas and was happy I was able to managed it within the first week of December.  There are still some to be mailed in the coming week before I go on a short holiday break with family back in the Philippines so I hope all are received before the 25th.

For now, let me share the card I created for Sketch N Scrap, Card Sketch # 15. The sketch is another great one from Kelly.

I used the pretty red ribbons from my stash while the patterned papers are from Basic Gray, Aspen Frost collection. The small banners are from Pink Paislee which I also have in a while from my stash and the stamps from Ali Edwards.

Warm Winter Wishes

It’s the first sketch of the month at Sketch N Scrap and we now have Card Sketch #13 designed by Kelly.

I created a holiday card using papers from Pink Paislee including the banner embellishments. Only few more weeks and Christmas is already here 🙂 I really need to get going with my holiday cards and not cram the last-minute to send it to family and friends overseas.

For my sentiment, I used a stamp from Papertrey Ink.

Tag It challenge

Quickly checking in to share my take in this month’s Papertrey Ink Tag it Challenge blog hop.


The challenge is create a quick set of five gift tags for the holidays, just perfect for the coming season isn’t it?

I used Papertrey Ink’s tag dies, alphas, star, and Christmas sock dies for this project. A combination of one, two or more of the elements. I did random ones rather than only one layout for the same set of five tags.

So without further ado, here’s what I came up with.
