Quick Mini Cards

If you're like me quick crafts are about all you have time for this time of year.  That's why I have a set of quick mini cards to share today. I'm using them in my teacher gifts, but the 3 3/4" square size makes them perfect for just about anything.

I used papers and stickers from the December Scrapbooking Store kit. I loved everything about this kit. The papers in it are a great mix of traditional and modern Christmas colors.

Fun fact, a 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" card fits perfectly inside one of Amazon's square gift card gift boxes. It doesn't get much easier than an Amazon gift card in a pretty box with a quick hand made mini card for a teacher gift (or a gift for a friend or family member).

To keep these looking a bit more interesting (simple doesn't have to mean plain), I used a lot of Pop-Up Glue Dots. The dimensional adhesive gives a layered look to the cards, even though there aren't any paper layers.

I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing Christmas!

Glory to God Christmas Decor

It's December, which means there's a new kit out for the Scrapbooking Store. I love the collection of Christmas papers they put together for this kit. I have lots of plans for it, but today I'm starting with this Glory to God Christmas decor.

I created a simple printable of Luke 2:14. Then I printed it out on one of the more solid colored papers from the December kit. I layered on top of a more bold patterned paper, and then attacked it to a wood sign. You can download the printable for yourself here.

I used gold star rub-ons from the kit upgrade to add a little extra sparkle to the printable. I used Craft Glue Dots® to hold it all together. I know the stick will last so I can use this home decor piece for years to come.

Creating home decor pieces for Christmas is one of my very favorite things to do, and this one was so simple!

I received the Scrapbooking Store December Kit for free but all of the projects and opinions are my own.
