Time to Make the Christmas Cards

It's already that time of year when you start Christmas cards and Cheery Lynn Designs has got some adorable new Christmas dies that will make your cards beautiful and easy. 
The new Poinsettia strip makes these flowers so quickly.  I've just added ink for some coloring had popped them out in no time.  I did use the cutie from the Blacked Eyed Susan Strip for the centers and colored them yellow. 
Not sure if you can see it or not, but the oval cut out makes a shadow box effect with the use of foam tape.  I do so love me some foam tape, LOL. 
Here's my listing of all the dies to add to your collection:

Lots and lots of drawers

I love the Miss Empire collection from KasierCraft and I just adore the way this mini chest of drawer turned out.  Every drawer was covered with various paper so everything is all mixed up but coordinates at the same time.  

I sent this one off for CHA so I won't get to fill all the little drawer with various bits and bobbles but I may just have to make another one as I really loved the finished projects.

While we enjoy seeing scrapbook layouts and beyond the page projects occasionally, we find cards and tags best suited for trade shows and displays. 

One way that is sure to impress is use only handmade flowers.

Make sure the dies are the star of the show.
