2015 Christmas Cards - Set #1

Finally found sometime over Thanksgiving weekend to get my Christmas cards done!  My friend Courtney came over and we had a crafting weekend.  I haven't done a lot of crafting, so it was nice to get all of my stamps and paper out!!!


I always make my own cards for Christmas, but this year they included a picture of our daughter Isabelle - almost a year old.  And, I was able to use my new Christmas stamp for the inside:


Here are all the cards I made - with a few close ups:

Flower Sentiments

I started these a few months ago and finally got a chance to finish them up this weekend.  I used the same design in a bunch of different colors and added a variety of sentiments.  They were super easy and turned out really clean and simple!


I did mass production in our living room (which is finally back to normal!) and made a total of just over 350 of them!  I made a bunch of sets for wedding, Christmas, and Mother's Day gifts and have a ton left over for me to send out next year.

Fall Bonet

We're not quite sure who made this one, but it was one of my dad's relatives from Canada.  Isabelle had lots of fun wearing it this fall - especially at the Pumpkin Patch with mom and Grandma Michelle.
