I used more glitter paper...gasp...

I had to bust out some more glitter paper.  At this rate, I'll be out soon.  I have come to terms with the hoarding problem.....I can go back to Hobby Lobby and get more.  Geez, why didn't I think of that sooner!  Look at how fun this glittery sentiment is...it totally worth using it up....

So first, I cut that super sentiment with the Simon Says Merry Christmas die.  Then I ran the sentiment through my little Xyron to turn it into a sticker.  I learned about this in the Summer Card Class, and I have found that this really is the easiest way to adhere these fun little dies to your card.  And so easy!  If you don't have one, get one!  And grab a refill too.  I didn't.   And now I need a refill.  :)  (You can find a link to these in my supply list below)

I used the diagonal SSS stencil to sponge in this fun candy cane stripe.  I added in the most adorable tree with the Bright and Merry Tree stamp set and dies.  Oh and then I corner chomped the one corner. Do you have a corner chomper?  In my opinion....a must have for your tool set!  :)

The kids are out of school today, so I am taking them on a little road trip.  They are so excited they can hardly wait.  That means....I better get gone!  Have a great day!

  7. Hoarding...none of us hoard, do we?? I can't believe how much paper that I have that I just haven't used because I might need it for something else - and now I look at it and it's old and dated! Of course, glitter red is not going to get old and out-of-date - so you MUST keep using it to create these fun cards!!

  11. My strategy is to buy paper in packs of 25 from my local discount store ... then I don't feel at all bad about using it! Hahaha. But then there's the whole space issue ...

    Anyway, love your light and bright Christmas card. Very worthy of your glitter paper!
