My First Mini Album - Graphic 45 A Christmas Carol

I have been seeing a lot of handmade mini albums lately.  So I went on a search for some tutorials on how to make them and tried my hand at them for a Christmas present for my Mom and Sister.  After watching a couple of tutorials and enlisting a couple of my friends to make one too, I went to work.

Since they were going to be Christmas presents, I decided to use Graphic 45, A Christmas Carol.

Stocking Card

I wanted to share a couple of projects I made using some SVG Cuts files.  The Stocking card I created using More Christmas Box Cards.  I just love the way the front of this card is designed to look like a cable knit.

I also made the Christmas tree from the Christmas Cafe SVG kit.  What a clever way to give kcups.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday.

Poinsettia Passion ~ Cyndy

Happy Friday crafting friends.  Can you believe Christmas is one week away.  As always I am hurrying to get my cards done.  I decided to share with you today a couple of the cards from the amazing new kit JGW Poinsettia Passion.  I just LOVE this kit.  Everything is so beautiful.

I love the way this box card looks.  I used the beautiful papers of Maja Design - A Gift For You for this project.  I also used a tag on the front of the box card that I had from MME - Joyous.  
I think it fit this card perfectly.

For the doily card I used a brad from MME - Joyous.  I just love the Santa on the brad.

These cards really deliver the Wow factor.  Thank you for stopping by today.  
I wish you all a Merry Christmas.

Christmas Treats ~ with Cyndy G.

Happy Friday, I hope everyone enjoy the Magic of Christmas hop last weekend.  I know I got lots of new ideas.  I hope you were inspired to try one of the projects too.  Today I want to share with you the December Countdown Sacks from JGW Christmas on the Docket.  These are the little bags you would have seen on Jodi's blog.

A friend sent me a message and asked me to make some treat bags for him and I knew when I saw these that they would be perfect.  They go together very quickly and you can make all look so different.  I just love the paper in the DCWV Hand-Painted Christmas Stack.

I took elements from several different kits for the front of the bags.  
I took the tree from the O Christmas Tree kit.
