Christmas Layout by Mendi and cards by Christine

Are you ready for some scrapbooking? This is where my first love of paper crafting started, so it will always sing brighter in my heart than other paper crafts. I am not sure what I love more the happy papers or the cute grin, both are equally heart warming, right? Don’t forget to pop over to her blog because she has many wonderful goodies there.
Mendi says “For this layout I let the adorable stickers and patterned papers that came with Echo Park Happy Holidays collection inspire my design.  I was sad to realize some of the collection stickers weren’t the right size for my needs and I couldn’t find a way to fit the larger tree print paper on my layout, but with the help of Lori’s cutting files I was able to capture the same feel by diecutting similar trees and creating my own diecut snowflake banner.  I love the result.  The colors just feel happy!”
 Cutting Files already used from Lori’s Shop:
Thanks Mendi this layout is adorable!
Next up I have some adorable cards by Christine. She used the Matchbox gift card holder for the base of her cards as well as the Echo Park This and That Christmas collection, designed by Lori.
Look at the different ways she finished off these cards. I love that she used ribbon and brads for these two cards and give each of them a different look.
Christine says “If you need a couple of gift card holders quick but want them to look like you took hours to make, then the Matchbox gift card holder is just what you need.  They are super easy to cut out and put together and they look adorable and oh so fancy.”
Just plain brilliant I say, easy and cute, my favorite combination.
She also has some more pictures and instructions on her blog, so be sure to head over and check it out. Thanks Christine! Love these.
Hope these amazing projects help inspire you this Christmas season.
