Shabby Chic Christmas Kit #2 - Maja Design 'Holiday in the Alps'

Welcome Back Everyone!

This has been quite a week! Well maybe two weeks. I had let Carol know that I needed to slow down a bit with everything I have currently on my plate. But then, I believe it was Saturday the 15th, I was suddenly in the mood to make cards! Can I squeeze it in? Well, I did. And, I had a blast. You saw the last post of three partly completed cards.

Well, once Carol started show casing them, everyone was excited to get this kit too. So I had to keep going, and gratefully, my creative mood continued and I was able to squeeze making these cards into my schedule. You know how it is; you always make time for what you really feel like doing. 

So, this kit consists of different sized cards. They are close to size of the old traditional European cards (3 1/2"W x 6"H) And, on the envelope punch board, there is even an envelope you can make for this size card. However, with the thickness of these cards, they wouldn't fit into a regular envelope. So, I am once again going to create a box for these cards and post a FREE TUTORIAL for that sized card box.

There are three gatefold cards and three regular fold cards in this kit.

On to showing you the cards, and giving you the information to purchase this kit. I believe, as of today, there are only 3 kits left!

The following was posted on the Scrapbook Parade Facebook page:

Here are all 6 cards in our 2nd Christmas Card Kit using Maja's "Holiday in the Alps" Collection designed by Sabrina -- absolutely beautiful!!!
This kit is $40 and there are only 2 left...
This time we have a kit shipping to Montana as well as France and PEI again. So exciting!

So with 2 kits left, they'll be goon soon.

The next post will be for the card box that will fit this size card, and the one after that will be the detail photos and a little video to go with the instructions. It will be much shorter this time; I promise.

So in the meantime, Happy crafting & card making!

Working On Another Christmas Card Kit

Hi everyone! Welcome back.

I do not know when this will be completed and available for you because I have to slow down my schedule somewhat with certain things going on in my life. I will, or I should say Carol at Scrapbook Parade will announce when it will be available.

I am working with another Maja Design paper pad; 'Holiday in the Alps'. Again, such beautiful paper and lovely colours to work with. These cards will be a cleaner Shabby Chic style, that will take less time to create. No paper distressing, no 'snowing' the paper edges. These cards will also be a totally different size than what we are accustom to as they are closer to a European card size. Because the cards will be too thick to put into envelopes anyway, we do not have to worry about envelopes. However, if made in a more flat style they would fit into a coin envelope #7 I believe. Or you can use your Envelope punch board to create the size needed as this size card is on the board. I will include a card box/envelope design for this size card that will be available to everyone whether you purchase a kit or not.

So this is what I have accomplished so far. I have 3 gatefolds ready to embellish, and have two more cards to get to that point. These two will just be a regular fold, not gatefolded.

This photo shows the three gatefolded cards, and more paper to use for the other two cards and making of embellishments.

If you want to go ahead and get your name on the list for this kit, let Carol know via messaging her on the Scrapbook Parade Facebook page. Sometimes these kits sell out fast as there is a limited number of kits available.

How will I embellish them? Watch for the kit announcement to see the completed cards. 

Happy Card Making!
