Making your Digital Christmas Cards with CTMH ~ Studio J

After seeing Brae's digital CTMH Studio J Christmas cards, I though WOW I can get all my Christmas cards done in under 1 hour. Best part is, they will be delivered right to my home. I've always loved the digital Christmas cards but not the on-line selections or the limitations.  So, I got to play with the pattern paper I love and custom create my very own digital cards.

If you want to try this for yourself take a look at Brae's full instructions.  Very easy and fun, again the best part was print 5 copies please and voilà, 40 digital cards in under 1 hour.

I even had the time to complete a double page layout, now that's being productive ;-)

7th annual Christmas Card Workshop 2013

This year YOU decide,  make 15, 30 or all 45 cards.  Please see the list of materials you will need to complete all three sets.  You can select 1, 2 or all 3.  If you decide to make more then 15 cards, you will need one Colonial White Value Pack Card Bases and Envelopes(50) X1410.  The Twilight option was inspired by Vicki.  Since you have two B&T Frosted papers in the original kit, you can make them all.  I followed Vicki's lead and used Barn Red and Cocoa.  If you like the more traditional Reds and Greens, option 1 is for you.  Or the cool Blues, featured in option 2.  Or even the more masculine Browns in option 3.

This is the original cardmaking kit.

Halloween Coffins

I know it sounds a little strange but these little coffins are really cute, they are super easy to make using the Artiste Cricut art cartridge.  I made these with my 9 year old daughter.  The owl is made using the Artbooking cartridge.
