Forest Dream

I had already made a card using this sheet of designs but I decided to use the whole sheet and make up the rest of the cards.  HERE is a link of what the sheets look like, you have to cut them out but they are easy shapes to cut.

Marianne Design - Forest dream decoupage sheet
Martha Stewart - border punch
Spellbinders - Circle delight
Happy Holidays - Epoxy sticker
My Mind's eye - O Christmas tree paper

Marianne Design - Forest dream decoupage sheet
PPD - A2 stitched banner die
My Mind's eye - O Christmas tree paper

I did tell myself no more buying any Christmas paper until I use up what I have but then I was in Hobby Lobby and I saw this pack and it was on a good sale, and it just jumped in my cart :)

Marianne Design - Forest dream decoupage sheet
Memory Box - Stitched circle layers
K& co. - Paper Ribbon, smitten white
Snow flakes from border punch
Paper Studio - Have a cozy Christmas paper

Marianne Design - Forest dream decoupage sheet
Spellbinders - Scalloped Squares small die
Paper Studio - Have a cozy Christmas paper

In this last card looking at the paper I thought I think I might have a die that looks like my background and I added some pearls to look like the berries on them :)

Marianne Design - Forest dream decoupage sheet
Tim Holtz - Wildflowers stem #2 die
Spellbinders - Lacey Ovals die
Ms. Sparkle & co. Glitter paper
Paper studio pearls

Over the year I made 30 some cards so that's not bad and I am up to 40 something now and in need of a few more, so I will make sure that I make them ahead of time like I did this past year and hopefully I can be even more prepared next Christmas :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,

These are absolutely beautiful, Connie! I would not be able to resist that paper, either. Such cute images from the decoupage sheet. The die on your owl card really does match the paper nicely, and then with the pearls it's perfect! I, too, made cards all year, but not nearly enough. I need to do much better. Making a promise to myself.

'Tis funny how pretties that we don't really need jump into our basket when shopping, isn't it. All these cards are beautiful, Connie. Each and every one evokes festive joy. It seems your making of your Christmas cards throughout the year has paid off.

What a beautiful line-up of Christmas cards. I love every single one of them, but I think the fox one is my absolute favorite! So festive and cheery!

These are all so beautiful, we can get caught up in the purchase of wonderful papers, I have so many I could sell half and still not miss them.x

Debbie said...

oh connie, these are my favorites so far!! hehehehe, do i say that a lot, i know i do. i really, really like the papers and perhaps because they are filled with animals, i favor them most!! as i scrolled through, i kept saying, oh...i like this one the best!! i did really like the first one, with the bird on the broom. you are so talented connie!!

40 cards is a good number, i usually send out around 50, but i could never make 50, so pat yourself on the back!!

i have the same problem when i shop in stores, things fall into my shopping cart. i have noticed the same problem when i am on amazon...when i get to my shopping cart there's a whole bunch of stuff in it!! how in the world does that happen!!?? hehehehe
