Text Me!

My husband wouldn't be very happy if all my crafty, blog friends texted me... he got me an iPhone for Christmas and jokingly, he made the "cha-ching" sound every time I got a text that day! It was quite exciting because my phone before (that I had for 7 years) didn't text! Anyway, I LOVE my iPhone and I also love to text! ;)

Anyway, the Jingle Belles prompt this week is "Text Me!" I think paper with text is so cute, trendy and sometimes nostalgic. So fun to use for so many different projects...

Let's have a closer look at that beaded tree, shall we?

I wish I could say I made that sweet, glittery tree, but I'd be lyin'. It's from Meri Meri. BUT... you and I could totally make this tree with a stencil and some DesignaTac sticky paper. Maybe I'll make a bunch and stick 'em in the Etsy shop!

You wanna know why I love making holiday cards in advance? Besides the fact that I get to actually enjoy making each one without a rush, and spend time lovingly making each one, it's the fact that I can use up my scraps. Not all holiday cards and pages have to be made with "holiday" supplies! All the items in the card above (besides the fancy tree) is a leftover scrap from something else. The text paper with "happy holidays" on it is the only Christmas item I used. The rest... scraps! The finished card is 4.5x6.25 inches.

Now, go on and be a Jingle Belle and make a holiday card!


    I think I can make those trees too!
    I have that exact mix of beads sitting in a drawer just waiting for your gorgeous card to inspire me!
    Thank you!!!

  5. ACK!!! I absolutely adore your beaded tree!! I haven't the slightest clue how to make one, but I think I'll need a squillion of these!! :D Oh! Oh! And the DP you used is just perfect as your "backdrop", if you will. Love this!
