~Sharing a little CrEaTiViTy...one day at a time.~

This year, I decided to do something different when making Christmas cards...I mass-produced them! In the past, I have enjoyed creating different ones for each of my friends and family. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy it, BUT, I knew my plan of attack had to be mass production this year, or they'd never get out of the house! I used the Stampin' Up Ornament punch for all of the ornaments, double layered them for dimension, then added bling and/or stamping, as needed. I also used the Stampin' Up Sizzix Top Note die for the front, as well as on the inside of each card, cut in creme. I used the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from a $1 stamp I had found at Michael's, and drew on the strings and bows suspending each ornament on the card. Even though I mass produced these ( I ended up making 50!!!), I still was able to use variations in color schemes to change up the cards when creating them. Hope you enjoy them, and sorry it has taken me sooooo long to post! I was so incredibly BUSY during the holidays, that I barely had time to get online! ~Hoppy Crafting!
Kindergarten teacher by day, and self-proclaimed crafting nightowl. I enjoy long walks with my Gypsy, iced mochas, and salivate over the newest papers, embellishments, Stampin' Up products, and Cricut cartridges available. While I LOVE my job as a kindergarten teacher, I need a creative outlet in my downtime. For me, this comes in the form of scrapbooking, cardmaking, cake decorating, and other miscellaneous crafts. I am a woman who is forever 29. Artist. Married with furry and slimy children (cats, dogs, & fish). And, in case you can't tell by the blog name, I'm obsessed with frogs. :o) I'm ready to try new things...let's see where this journey takes me!
