Well after taking a 'dillion' photos (that's Jack's latest invented number) I found a nice smily happy one to use for this year's Christmas cards. Christmas Photo Shoot
I played around with photoshop and put this file together so I could print off a bunch of small photos on one regular size photo.
Here's a few different cards with ideas for ways to incorporate a photo. I've used the ornament punch this year. (Good news coming soon on that punch if you'd like to add it to your collection for next year's Christmas creating.)
The Shimmery White cardstock is embossed with the Big Shot and PetalsAPlenty embossing folder. Noel is from Many Merry Messages - a great Christmas greeting set tucked away on page 106. The Scallop Trim punch features here too plus some retired Soft Suede ribbon.
The ornament shaped pieces are spritzed with a mix of Isocol and Champagne Mist. Hard to show the gorgeous sparkle but here's a bit of a hint at it.
And here's a series I made with embossed vellum backgrounds. I couldn't decide which embossing folder to use so tried out a bunch.
Here's the new Square Lattice one ...
Finial Press .....
Vintage Wallpaper ....
And PetalsAPlenty ...
The piece at the top and the ornaments have all been spritzed with my Champagne Mist/Isocol mix. Time for me to order a truckload of Champagne Mist I think - I LOVE this sparkly spray.
And to finish off with today, some from the kids for their grandad. (Never know how to spell that - whether it should be grandad or granddad or grand-dad. I googled but that wasn't much help, seems any of the above is the answer.)
Here's Jack's. (4)
And here's a card from Hannah (8)
I liked the back of her card too ....
Signing off now for a few days.
Have a wonderful Christmas. Thanks for visiting my patch of blogland this year and I look forward to spending some time with you in cyberspace again next year.
Wishing you lots of happy moments with family, friends and loved ones this festive season.
Love Sue xx
