My Christmas Card Stash is Low Hop

It is our sincere hope that this helps to inspire you to get working on those Holiday cards early so as to reduce a little of the stress felt around the season!
You should be coming from SARAH's blog but if you just found your way here please start at the beginning there.
There will be 2 blog candies for this hop.
First, there will be a stash prize given out randomly to 1 comment from all the blogs. You MUST comment on all the blogs!! You will have until Tuesday the 26th at 11:59pm CST to comment. Sarah will announce the winner on Wednesday morning.   

The second prize will have a little more work for you to enter. We're going to have a little challenge for you to enter. 1st you will need to stop and comment on every blog. 2nd you will need to create a holiday card/gift tag/general gift giving paraphernalia and enter it at the inlinkz on Sarah's blog. You have a week to enter and you can enter up to 3 projects. The prize for this challenge is a stamp set and crinkle ribbon bundle of YOUR CHOICE from our sponsor Mae Sunshine Designs! <

Now for my steps for making a large amt of Christmas Cards:

  •  pick 2-3 card sketches and stick with those
  • to get a lot of cards, a 8.5 x11 cut in half will give you two 
  • pick out 1 pattern paper and 2 coordinating colors
  • 1 spool of ribbon
  • embllishments ( I used K&Co that I bought from Michaels. There were 50 chipboard poinsettias. I also did gold embossing on each card)
  • you can get a box of invite envelops to fit this size card)
  • have fun...

Here are my cards using those steps...


Your next stop should be Sarah W's Blog.

If you get lost along the way here is the whole line up!

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
