Christmas Already?

Time sure flies.

The flurry of post-wedding sorting, tidying, organising and documenting has only just started to calm down, and I find myself half-buried under an avalanche of card-making materials.

But it's the life I signed up for, I guess! Actually, this year, without a wedding looming in the near distance I feel very relaxed about Christmas preparations. Good thing, too, since I have nearly 100 cards to make for customers! The first batch has already gone, and I'm working on the second next week.

rolled paper scraps make a great Christmas tree
and give such interesting dimension to a card
the brief was traditional, but I like to add my own twist
again, great dimension from these baubles

and reusing last year's gift tags? genius!

 How about you? Have you started with Christmas yet? 


  1. Wow Cheryl!! I Really adore your Christmas cards, they are SO beautiful!! I love the colors you chose and how you designed them! A truly wonderful work - honest!! Hope you have a great new week, I just came back and about to start scrapping :)))

  2. Great the rolled xmas trees.

  3. That is a great idea for using scraps, the rolled up paper!. I have been making loads as well, using up loads of old paper, and getting rid of loads of stuff.

  4. Oh.... I love these! I tried the tree decoration idea last year, but it looks even better on a card. The tree using rolled up paper is billiant.

  5. I've started with thinking about Christmas, does that count?

    Really nice card idea. I like it!

  6. Such adorable cards!! Love the rolled paper tree! Wonderful LO!! ~ Blessings
