Christmas Card Swap

Hi all Erin here with some fun and easy card for a Christmas card swap I am doing this year.  Check it out!

All the cards have the same items on them except for the brad, that changed color and shape as the Eyelet Outlet pack was a variety pack of 12, so I still have 2 left!!  Working with a variety of 12x12 sheets of paper and cutting them up for layers is an easy way to use up what you have instead of having to go out and buy a ton of one paper pattern.  Here is my video tutorial on how to make these fun cards.

The Holiday Script Stamp set is perfect for this card where I just wanted an easy sentiment.

Here is the card with a gold ornament brad instead of the green one.

Time to start getting your cards ready, Christmas is just around the corner!!

Supplies Used
Brads - Eyelet Outlet
Enamel Dots - Eyelet Outlet
Flowers - Eyelet Outlet

Angels Wings ATC

Hi all, Erin here. Art can be therapy, and this is what these ATCs are all about for me.  Not only for a friend who has had a loss, but also to still help me heal from the loss of my daughter.  This is why I craft everyday, to help heal.

These little cards are made with wings stamps from Paper Wings Productions, not only as a background for each card but also cut out on the embellishments

On the backs of each of the cards is the poem that was read at my daughter funeral, a very common poem meant for parents at the loss of a child.

Here is my full video tutorial, but I will warn you, I get a bit emotional on this one.  This whole process brought back so many emotions even after almost 8 years.  I will always miss my little Kristen, and moments like these really bring my feelings right back to the day she got her wings.

My love and hugs go out to all that have had a loss.  

Supplies Used
Ink - Stazon
Embellishments - Wings Embellishments 
Glue - Beacon Adhesives
