On the 2nd Day of Christmas...

Before our daily post, the winner of yesterday's giveaway is Kim- fulltimer! Send me an email with your mailing address at: swtjes@msn.com.

~ As a note to everyone entering the giveaways, the giveaway for each day ends on the new post on the following day and the winner is announced. So, today's giveaway ends tomorrow on the new post! See what today's giveaway is at the bottom... we love these!

Easy Invitations or Cards


These invitations are pretty and easy to make. This is definitely for a beginner that wants to browse the scrapbooking isle!

You'll need:
Assorted Adhesive Christmas Chipboard - Kandcompany.com- We found ours at JoAnns
1 Pack of Adhesive Borders - Kandcompany.com
Christmas Scrapbook Paper - Background
Solid Colored Canvas Paper - To print invite on
Solid Tag Board - For Punched Corner background
1 Corner Punch - Optional, but pretty!
Paper Cutter - Optional but helps keep things straight, or use a ruler and scissors


Adhesive chipboard, borders and Christmas scrapbook paper
Cut the background 5" x 7". Cut the middle tag board 4" x 6". Go through the borders and pick which ones you'll use for the card.

Using your corner punch, punch the corners of the tag board.

Glue the tag board to the background Christmas paper.


Print out your text and invite on the canvas paper. Use something like Word and fit 4 to a page. CAREFUL! Print the out on plain copier paper first. Canvas paper is about .69 a sheet. It's not a cheap mistake if you mess up!


Glue the invite to the tag board. Now be creative and add your borders, chipboard and anything else. These came out so pretty, and looking like we spent a lot more time on them than we did! We are making them for our Christmas cards this year. You can add anything to the canvas paper, such as a picture or a pretty manger scene. Enjoy!
