This is a calendar I made as a gift for my favorite sister.

It uses the Close to My Heart display album and this month's special Key To My Heart papers and stamp set, as well as the January Stamp of the Month, Moments in Time

Christmas Cards

Here are some of the Christmas Cards I made this year.

There is a great tutorial with instructions in the CTMH TV section of my website, under the "Crazy for Cards" episode. The instructions show you how to make 20 cards like this, with each one being a little unique by using 10 sheets of cardstock and 5 sheets of patterned paper.

I used the Merry and Bright stamp set but in the instructions, they use the Evergreen set.

This pattern would work with many different papers and stamps - great when you want to make a batch of cards.

'Twas the Night Before Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas,
I'm glued to the tree.
I'm wondering what Santa
brought just for me.
Could it be cardstock
or chipboard or lace?
Or a Cricut, I said,
with a smile on my face.
And that's when I heard him,
"Hi Santa!" I said.
"You know, good little girls
should be in their beds."
"I know I should Santa,
And now I've been caught,
'Cause I'm so excited
To see what you brought!"
"Well, let's take a look
in this room where you work."
He shook his head quickly,
And left with a jerk.
I heard him exclaim
as he put it in gear:
"You've got enough crap,
I'll see you next year!"
