It's Starting.....

....to look like a Christmas mess in my scrapbook room. I have a six-foot table right in the middle where I have about 12 inches to work. I'm not quite sure what's happened to me lately. If anyone who knew me for a long time were to look at my mess, they wouldn't believe it's mine. I've always had the reputation of being very neat and particular. Of course, the hubby wouldn't agree with that anymore. I guess he's long forgotten about that Patty. I've become quite the unorganized person. Oh well.....life is too short to worry about being neat all the time.

This is just a sampling of what I've been working on lately. I'm trying to get several different cards together so I can decide how many of each to make. Once I get some other designs made, I'll change them up by using different paper patterns and embellishments. I've also been working on some cards for my sister-in-law, and I'm almost done with them.

I'm pretty happy with the way this wreath card turned out. When you see the card in person, the sparkle on the leaves really stands out.

Wreath


I just love this Bazzill paper called Holly Flourish Ivy. I also used some Hero Arts stamps and gemstones, ribbon, quickie glue pen and sparkling ice glitter.

On the card below, I used cardboard for the tree trunk. I also used a tree stamp (not sure who the company is as the packaging is long gone) and paper pieced the tree together. Flower Soft was used to add snow. I never really thought of using cardboard on my cards until I visited with a customer who shops at Paper Studio. I came away with a lot of inspiration for cardmaking after my visit with Kate.

Season's Greetings


I'm kind of partial to the card below because 1) it's black and 2) I love plaid.

be merry


Other supplies used for this card include paper from Graphic 45's Communique Collection and diecuts from Making Memories Slice. I love the black sparkle embossing powder!
