Non-Traditional Christmas Colors Wow!

I love, love, love, the color combo that Jannette Santamarina used on this holiday catalog swap card! My photo doesn’t really do it justice. This card was also made using the Project Life Seasonal Snap Shot stamp set. Isn’t the stamped stitching fun? The wickedly fun fonts and the stitching images are my favorites.  It’s a little hard to see in my photo, but I like how Jannette scored around the edges of the card on the Perfect Plum. A very nice touch!

Capturing Seasonal Snapshots

Do you breeze right by the Project Life section of the catalog because you are not a scrapbooker? Because if you do, you are missing a really fun stamp set called Seasonal Snapshot. It is a Project Life stamp set because the images are sized right for use with Project Life cards…but that doesn’t mean that you can’t use them for cards! The fonts are fun and so are the images! This is a swap card that I received created by Shelly Peck.

Swapping Season’s Greetings

Swapping Season’s greetings is a tradition that seems to be going the way of the dinosaur. I find it sad that so few people take the time to send Christmas cards anymore. I sent them regularly, even before I was a card maker. It was, and still is, the one time of year where I try to remember everyone, within reason. Over the years my list has gotten smaller because those extended elderly relatives that I was making a point of including on my list have gone on to their heavenly reward. Many of them lived far away. Many of them I met only once at some type of family gathering. I’m not sure why I did it other than, for some reason, I felt it was important. Maybe it’s because I used to deliver newpapers. The elderly folks on my route(s) were avid newspaper readers. In those days, the carrier had to collect payment for the subscriptions. I spent a lot of time collecting. It’s not that getting the payment took so long…it’s more that the elderly folks invited you in. They wanted to visit. They were hospitable. They were eager to share their family with you. I learned a lot in those visits. Letters, cards, and photos were valuable treasures. They came out often. Sometimes we don’t understand the value of these small gestures to family and friends. A few years back I received a Christmas card from someone that I did not recognize. I was puzzled but opened it with eager anticipation. It was more than a Christmas card, it was also a thank you message bearing sad news. One of my husband’s Aunts had passed away. I had met her only once. Her daughter, whom I had never met, had sent me the card. It was filled with gratitude for remembering her parents, and eventually just her mom, year after year. I am not sharing this to brag. More to remind us that swapping Season’s Greetings the old fashioned way is something we should make an effort to bring back into fashion. This card is a swap card created by Janet Angi.  Normally, I share a list of products used to create each card that I share with you…but today I am just going to ask you to remember someone  by sending them a handwritten note, letter, or card.
