Reveal of the October Flavor of the Month Card Kit by Scrapping for Less

Christmas Around the World

 I was an elementary school teacher for many years. During Christmas time for Social Studies we studied Christmas traditions around the world. This was my absolute favorite time of the year with my students. So, for our Christmas Around the World card kit I have chosen my most favorite countries we studied to feature.

Mexico: Great food and wonderful traditions centered around Papa Noel.
Sweden: St. Lucia was my favorite tradition in Sweden we studied.
Australia: My students got the biggest kick out of the fact that it was hot and summer there during Christmas.
Germany: Of course what would a study be without studying the origin of the Christmas tree.

Please sit back and enjoy the elements we put together for our Christmas Around the World Flavor of the Month Card Kit.

Christmas Cookies Cards by Paper House

Hello Crafty Friends, it's Stacy from CraftaholicMomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog with a couple of sweet holiday cards for you. 

once again used papers from the PhotoPlay Christmas Memories 6x6 paper pad. I just love the rich jewel tones in this collection. I thought they paired up perfectly with the Paper House 3D Christmas Cookies Stickers

Even though they are very simple cards using stickers I think they came out very nice.

For a bonus project I wanted to make a couple of gift card holders using up some of the paper scraps. I recently watched Angie Juda's YouTube tutorial showing this idea. Click on the link to her information HERE

Tell me in the comments below what is your favorite kind of Christmas sweet?

Longing to See You Giraffe | Stampendous

Hello my friends! It's Stacy here from CraftaholicMomma up today on the Scrapping for Less blog. Today I have a card for you using the Stampendous Giraffe stamp and die combo set. There are two things that I really like about this set. One, you can take the background die and use it with any stamp you have in your collection to make a tree scene. You can make it like the safari I made here, or you could use it as a meadow tree or Halloween dead tree just by changing up the colors of card stock you cut. Two, the giraffe set is so cute and versatile. You could mirror stamp a second one and entwine their necks around each other for an adorable love you card. There's just so much you can do with it!!

I masked off the card layer with a circle die and masking paper. I used blending brushes and Distress Oxide inks to create the horizon and safari sky. I die cut the tree with black card stock and made it into a frame with a second circle die from my stash. I adhere this over the inked background with liquid adhesive. I stamped, die cut and colored the giraffe with Copic Markers. Stamping the sentiment and popping the giraffe and card layer up on foam adhesive finished it off nicely.

I think it fits in nicely with this month's theme of "In the Wild". I would to go on an African safari someday. I just LOVE giraffes and elephants!
