Nearing the end of October, I got a sinking feeling that I wouldn't be able to make Christmas cards this year.
As you know, my craft supply is very limited and 90% of it is in storage. The 10% I do have available is mostly for smashbooks and layouts, and an entirely different season.
I kinda stopped crafting for a few months, to focus on bible study and family time. But I started to catch the itch again after seeing all the Christmas decor show up in stores.
After a heartfelt conversation with my husband, I decided I would challenge myself and only make very Clean & Simple Christmas cards. Because my copic markers were lost somewhere in our storage unit, and couldn't be found.
[incidentally, later, hubby went back without me and found my box of copics; he knew it would help with my PMS... lol - so you just might see some copic colored simple cards too!]
Anyhow, I attempted this CAS Cardmaking series last year, and it was a success. So it couldn't be that difficult, right?
I didn't have a lot of the items I used to take for granted. A glue gun, spring-cut scissors, heat tool, embossing supplies, Christmas stamps and paper, or even cards & envelopes.
So for the past 2 months I have been S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G.. I don't have every SINGLE item that I'd love to use, but I have enough to create, share and inspire you with simple, elegant, clean and fun Christmas cards. Not to mention some things I got for my December Daily... because God Forbid I don't document my FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR!
I hope you're as excited as I am about these next 25 Christmas cards. And if you recognize any of them from Instagram, then let me just say THANK YOU for following me on social media. I really appreciate the love.
Here's a sneak peak of some of what's to come...
Join me soon for Day 1.
And remember, JESUS is the reason for the season!
