Simply Saturday…Christmas Designs

Thanksgiving weekend is a great time to get started on those Christmas designs if haven’t already done so! If you are short on crafting time, like many this holiday season, a great way to put together a pile of cards quickly is in a clean, simple style (this is Simply Saturday after all 😉 ) using coordinating papers and embellishments.

Today I have a couple quick cards to share with you in a very simple, scrappy style. Yes it is OK to switch up your styles once in a while. I always find I learn something new by looking at things in a different way. Only one of these cards has any ink…and it is a small amount at that but I had a lot of fun putting these designs together.

This quick simple design uses some textured cardstock and some fun glitter stickers to create a layered scrappy style card design. So quick and easy to put together with some coordinating papers and stickers…you could make a large variety of different designs for a quick set.

Supply List:

Cardstock: Bazzil Basics

Patterned Paper: Making Memories

Ink: White Craft – Stampin Up

Other: Glitter Stickers – making Memories, white eyelet, Crop-a-dile – We R Memory Keepers, Ribbon – Michael’s, snowflake rhinestone stickers – Me and My Big Ideas


I just love this patterned paper for this card design. This card actually was designed to coordinate with my Making a List covered notebook that was published in the Paper Crafts Holiday Cards and More issue. This is a super quick card to put together. The May Arts super thick Olive Ric Rak was one of my favorite additions. I set red Making Memories snaps in it to look like berries. The Basic Grey rub-on transfer is actually my favorite part of this design. I just love how it fits perfectly onto one of the ornaments…different products, different companies but it is almost as if they were made to go together. If you can’t see it in the pic…just click on it for a larger image. It says…Please Santa…I can explain. 🙂

Have a great weekend getting ready for the holidays. Hope you take time to enjoy some simple things and perhaps even put together some fun and simple designs.

I’m having MORE computer problems this morning. Today I’m grateful I had half of this already written, and that my son just bought a laptop this week! 🙂 Unfortunately all my files and photos aren’t accessable on the other computer. Soooo….if I don’t appear much for the next few days….that is where I am. Stuck with more computer problems. LOL I’m really having a love/hate relationship with these babies!
