Last Minute Christmas Cards Part 1, sneak peek, & BIG NEWS

Hello everyone!!! I have some big news to share today along with two Christmas cards. This week, leading up to Christmas I will be posing some simple cards I made for Christmas. I am calling this series Last Minute Christmas Cards.

For my last minute Christmas cards, I pulled out some of my paper scraps and used Kraft Cardstock for the base of the card. I have already sent out my Christmas cards for the year and I didn’t realize some of the photos were blurry so you will just have to deal with the blurry photos when the appear LOL. Sorry about that!

If you haven’t yet sent Christmas cards, never fear, it isn’t too late! I think you can still send out holiday cards until January 1st. :O)

There is a sneak peek on the first card below. To make the adorable scallops, I used the new Stampin’ UP Scallop Trim Border Punch that will be available for Sale-a-bration. This punch is so sleek and classy looking. I love it!!!


The snowflake is from the Stampin’ UP Serene Snowflakes stamp set stamped in Bermuda Bay ink and the sentiment is from the Stampin’ UP Snow Swirled stamp set stamped in Soft Suede. For cardstocks, I used Cool Caribbean (Retired In Color), Bermuda Bay, and Kraft.

MY BIG NEWS: Notice I have a fancy new watermark!?? I finally decided to design a fancy watermark for my photos here. I decided to go with SP for Scrapmaster’s Paradise rather than my initials SS BECAUSE in the next year or so. . . my initials will be changing! WAHOOOOOOOOOOO!! Johnny and I have decided to finally get married, we don’t have a date set, but we do know it will happen early 2011! I know it seems like a long time away, but it will be here before ya know it and we gotta start getting things planned out!

Anyway, the watermark is symbolic BECAUSE my new initials will actually be SP, just like the initials here at Scrapmaster’s Paradise! Isn’t that coincidental???? I don’t know how or why that happened but I thought it was cute when I noticed it recently.
This card was made with Real Red and Handsome Hunter cardstock.

  4. Congratulations on your wonderful news! I am so excited for you! You took me completely by surprise. I thought the big news was a SU sale, or blog candy, or some other wonderful thing. But setting the date (sort of) is COLOSSAL news! I’m doing a happy dance right now (and waking up everyone in my house). We should now have a year of sneak peaks at save-the-date cards, invitations, table decorations, etc.! Um, can you tell that I am excited? Hugs to you both!
