Heart of Christmas Week 5 - Spreading the joy of being creative for a handmade Christmas.
September 18, 2019
Time to spread some more Christmas creating joy around the internet! Welcome to week 5 of the Heart of Christmas blog hops, bought to you by my fabulous Art with Heart team.
This week I have been playing with the Night Before Christmas Memories and More card pack, and the coordinating cards and envelopes. These two products together make for some very quick and easy cards, and the card pack is also great for pocket scrapbooking.
Here's a closer look at the products I am playing with this week. Here is the card pack.
The coordinating cards and envelope pack is perfectly sized to fit the cards, and is patterned if you want to use a smaller card.
I made three quick Christmas cards, and dressed them up a little with a few extra embellishments.
For this first card I added a copper star element, some red rhinestones on the tree and a stamped greeting from Itty Bitty Christmas.
For my second card I added some of the coordinating Night Before Christmas DSP, a Toile Tiding glitter enamel dot, and some red rhinestones. The Old Olice piece at the top and bottom of the 3x4 card, is from a piece of cardstock punched with the Everyday Label Punch.
For the final card, I have trimmed down one of the bigger Memories and More cards so I could add some red glimmer paper behind it for a bit more sparkle. I also added some of the Holiday Rhinestones to the stars on the card.
Finally I used some of the cards in a double-sided 6x8 pocket scrapbooking page.
A tip for keeping photos in place in the top loading pocket pages. I cut a strip from one of the coordinating cards and made banner ends in it. I then folded this over the top of the top pocket and adhered it each side. I decorated it with an embellishment sticker from the kit and a couple of rhinestones. This keeps the top photos from falling out of the pockets.
Here's a closer look.
Now it's time to check in and see what else the clever Art with Heart team girls have come up with for Heart of Christmas this week.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out our creations this week.

Great cards and scrapbook pages Claire. I will have to get some of the memories and more cards myself and make some card with them too!

Wow, you've been busy this week! I hadn't realised the cards were pre-printed with the stars, I must go take another look! I love your M&M page. The tip for the top pocket is fantastic!
