December Inspiration: Quick and Easy Cards

There is still time to make hand crafted cards to the special people in your life. Look at the sample below created by Rosie. These are also perfect for attaching to hostess gifts and teacher gifts - and takes minutes to complete. Just layer the die cut leaves into a wreath shape, add a glitter dot to the centre of the leaves, add your sentiment and a ribbon and you are done! This card is gorgeous!

More December Daily Inspiration

How is your December Daily coming along? One of Design Team members, Rebecca Hilligas, is also making a December Daily. Check out her beautiful project below.

Rebecca's December Daily is created using the Teresa Collins' Santa's List collection pack. (The collection pack can be ordered from Sandy and the accessories can be found here.) She cut the pages into 6x6 to simplify the project and to utilize the double sized pattern papers to its fullest.

Like her cover, she cut the numbers with her Silhouette Cameo. Rebecca added some special items by cutting 2 sheets of transparencies to create a shaker pocket filled with sequins and punched stars.

Rebecca used the Bind-it-all to assemble the book. (The Bind-it-all is a specialty item that is ordered directly from Sandy.)  Rebecca is also going to be using her WRMK 3x4 punch to insert her photos and journalling. I think you will agree that this is a beautiful project....and is very inspiring!

December Daily Inspiration

At Scrap Shotz it has become an almost tradition to have a month of inspiration as we head into the Christmas season. I show you some quick and easy last minute gifts or home decor items or something to dress your table with and even gift ideas (that maybe you want to see under the tree this year) - you never know what you will see here!

So let's start off the first few days with our December Daily!!! For this year, I wanted to be simple, easy and something my children could participate in. I used the WRMK Envelope Board to create 31 envelopes of varying sizes, using up my Christmas stash or any paper that had red, green, white, blue, gold, silver (well any matching colours!) - and wow, did it ever make a dent in my stash!!

I also used the Spellbinders dies to create a label on each envelope that I embossed with the Tim Holtz embossing folders (wood grain and brick wall). Adorning each label is a die cut snowflake and the uber cool December Daily thickers from Studio Calico --- seriously one of my favorite items this year!

My daughters and I will be journalling each day using the journal cards from Simple Stories, American Crafts and Smash Books. Each girl will be using the American Crafts Project Life pens because we just adore them....I mean we really really love them! (I use them just for writing everyday because I love them SO much!) I have taken a picture each day and will print them off and put them into each envelope with a corresponding journal card. It is a fun activity I do with my girls each day...well, in reality, it is every 2-3 days. 

How is your December Daily faring? I would love to hear!

Join me on the blog as I work to inspire you and/or spread some Christmas cheer throughout the month of December!
