December Stamp Club Cards

For my Stamp Clubs this month, we are, of course, making Christmas cards! 
This adorable singing mouse is made from punches.  I rolled the music note wheel across the card in a curving motion.  The "Joy" is from The Sounding Joy stamp set.  Such a cute mousie!
This next card was designed by Lorna Raczynski, and uses the Spirelli technique.  I used Perfect Plum and glossy white cardtsock for this one.  The Lace stamp is stamped in VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder before sponging Perfect Plum ink around and on top of it.
This card was designed by a demonstrator in my upline's group, and I'm so sorry, but I can't remember who made it!  But I love the designer paper Christmas tree!  It's made by using a half-circle of paper and folding it back and forth.  The ribbon is a piece of Wild Wasabi grosgrain cut in half.
This final card is a gift card holder that I learned how to make at my upline, Winona Semler's, meeting.  It's made with a long envelope folded in half.  Super cute and easy to make!
Here's the inside. 

Thanks for reading!

Blessings to you,

December Scrapbook Club Layout

What else would we do in December but a Christmas layout? 
For this super-cute layout, I used the Holly Berry Bouquet Product Suite, including Holly Berry Bouquet designer series paper and buttons, the Pines & Poinsettias stamp set and some matching ribbon (Real Red satin, Wild Wasabi striped grosgrain and Very Vanilla velvet stitched ribbon).

The Christmas trees are made by taking a 6" half circle (cut with my Circle Scissors Plus), then folding it back and forth.

Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!
