More PML Christmas Cards

Well I did it!!! I finish making all 120 of my Christmas cards and they a in the mail!!  I can now just focus on the baking and cooking!  Since I shared the Picture My Life cards I made using the 4X6 cards already which you can find here.  I thought I would show you some of the ones I used creating the 3X4 cards.

3x4 PML cards ~ Pear & Partridge ~

It was so fun and easy to make these awesome cards.  I used embossing folders, ribbon, cardstock and embellishments. I has some of the Pear & Partridge paper pack so I was able to incorporate that into the cards.  I also have TONS of ribbon an in my stash I found several which would work with these cards.  Then a little shimmer trim, sequins and gems and presto fun festive holiday cards.

Here is a close up of one of the cards I designed using one of the new embossing folders ~ Scalloped. Plus I used our new white shimmer trim and one of my Shin Han markers and now I have green shimmer trim.

Christmas Cards using Picture My Life

I mentioned in a prior post that I decided to make all my Christmas cards.  Yes, I realize this is a large undertaking particularly since it means about 100 cards (this includes my husbands work cards too).   I had great intentions to start these earlier but you know how that goes with a three year old who gave up naps.  I wanted to make a variety of cards and I did use the wonderful Cut Above to help make a dent in the number of cards, but I still had quite a few more to make.  So I decided I would use the Picture My Life card particularly the Pear and Partridge and turn them into cards.   Now with the new option of ordering the PML cards A La Carte it make it even easier; you get 44 – 4″ × 6″ Cards (2 each of 22 designs) and 78 – 3″ × 4″ Cards (3 each of 26 designs) so you could make a ton of cards for only $14.95.

What makes using the PML cards so fabulous is most of the work is done for you, all I did was add some bling for the most part.  Check out the 18 cards I created (there are two of each design).

Don’t you just love them and they were seriously so simple!  Cardstock, sequins, clear sparkles, pink glitter gems, bakers twine, shimmer trim, glitter paper and Bling Gems is all it took.  I highly recommend giving these a try as you will be amazed on how easily they come together.  You can check out all the PML kits right HERE.

Happy Crafting!


CTMH – Roxybonds Scrappers Team Blog Hop – Pear & Partridge

Welcome to the Roxybonds Scrappers Team Blog Hop

Roxybonds Scrappers

We will be featuring artwork from the Pear & Partridge Paper Pack.

If you have come from Stephanie’s Blog then you are on the right path. Your next stop will be Jen’s Blog.

I had a lot of fun with this paper pack and was able to create several different items.  The holidays are always so busy but it was a lot of fun being creative.

For the ornaments I used the demential elements ornaments and also used my Silhouette to cut out some of the other ornaments. I then used silver embossing powder to make the silver caps on the ornaments and bakers twine for the bows and hangers.

Happy HolidaysI really like the technique of using second generation stamping.  I wanted my sentiment to stand out so I stamped it once in cranberry then using cocoa second generation to repeated it over the base of the card adding a pattern to the Colonial card stock.

I made this for a demonstration at a craft day. I really like the way it turned out and since I had a few extra, I plan to use them as place settings at Christmas.  I love using the roll technique to use multiple ink colors on one stamped image, as with the bird.

One other project I did with the Pear and Partridge paper was design an entire album using our Bookmark Album. Here are a couple of photos of some of the pages.

Christmas Album

Check out this adorable Christmas themed album.  This could be an easy way to get some of these wonderful Christmas photos in an album. The album could be a gift for a family member or it can become a treasured piece you display every holiday.  I designed this album as a kit for a friend who is hosting the workshop at her house. If you cannot attend or would like to purchase the kit so  you can do on your own is an option too. 

To sign up for this workshop Cat must receive your order and payment by October 30th at 6 pm.  This way all the product can be ordered and you can take advantage of the October Stamp of the month, which is a Christmas stamp set.

This workshop is using the My Creations  Bookmark Album.   The album is roughly 4” x 8” with 6 different pages plus the front and back cover.  The album is made of chipboard and has a magnetic closure and 2 binder rings. We will be adding a lot of embellishments to this album so you will learn how to modify this album to accommodate that.

Basic Kit:

The kit will include the Bookmark Album, the larger binder rings, Cranberry bakers twine, brads, ribbon to embellish.  The paper to be include will be half of the Pear & Partridge paper pack which will include one of each of the pattern papers shown here and one sheet of Olive, Cranberry, Cashmere, and Desert Sand cardstock.  You will also receive the velvet rub-ons and directions for $27 (this includes tax and shipping)



There are also several add ons which were used including Just Bloom Flowers and Buttons.  If you wish to put the kit together on your one you will need to purchase a few additional items.  All of the following stamp sets were used in creating the album:

– Merry and Bright

– The stamp set from the WOTG Pear and Partridge scrapbook kit

– October’s Stamp of the Month

– Inks: Desert Sands, Cranberry, Black and Olive

If you are interested in purchasing the kit please contact me as I do have some options to offer you the best pricing. The kit will come with colored photos and instructions on how to assemble.
