Other Uses for Project Life Kits I have mentioned several times that I AM NOT A SCRAPBOOKER!! (I’ve said it so many times that when I type the word “scrapbooker” it doesn’t even show up as a misspelled word. :)) Just because I don’t like to scrapbook doesn’t mean that I haven’t found other uses for Project Life Kits from Stampin’ Up!. This morning, as I was wrapping Christmas presents, I realized that I ran out of gift tags. Luckily, I had the Hello December 2016 Project Life Card Kit on hand to come to my rescue! If you want to see even more uses for Project Life Kits, take a look at my previous post where I showed several quick and easy greeting cards from the Hello December 2016 Project Life Kit by Stampin’ Up!.
How To Make 12 Christmas Cards With The “Hello December 2016 Project Life” Kit I have said over and over and over again that I am NOT a scrapbooker. It took awhile for me to tell myself that it’s okay. Stampin’ Up! is about doing what you LOVE, and I LOVE creating greeting cards. Today I want to show you how you can make twelve Christmas cards with the new Hello December 2016 Project Life Kit and Accessory Pack. First, take a look at my quick video to see an example of the cards: Supplies You’ll Need From The 2016 Holiday Catalog: Paper You Will Need From The Annual Catalog: Stamp Set, Ink, and Framelits You’ll Need From The Annual Catalog: Big Shot Items and Punches You’ll Need From The Annual Catalog: Ribbon You’ll Need From The Annual Catalog: Adhesives You’ll Need From The Annual Catalog: Phew! That’s a lot of supplies, right? But don’t panic! Go through your supplies and take inventory of the stuff you already have or stuff that is similar to what I used if you want to make your own adjustments. Now that you have gathered your stuff together, what do you need to do with it?? Here is what you’ll need to do before you start assembling the cards: score 6 pieces of Crumb Cake 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock at the 4-1/4″ mark and cut each scored piece at 5-1/2″ so you end up with 12 card bases cut 5 pieces of Real Red 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and emboss each piece with the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder cut 7 pieces of Emerald Envy 8-1/2″ x 11″ cardstock to 4″ x 5-1/4″ and emboss each piece with the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder die-cut 4 bows with the bow framelit from the Wonderful Wreaths Framelits Dies die-cut 4 “Noel”s with the Noel framelit from the Wonderful Wreaths Framelits Dies take a look at the photos and get busy CASE-ing!! (copy my layouts like you see them) I’ll be posting more in-depth videos soon. In the meantime, this should be enough info to get you started!! 🙂 Shop the Annual Catalog HERE Shop the Holiday Catalog HERE
