My Creative Scrapbook - Christmas Tree Button Cards

Hello friends. Today I thought I would share my "button" Christmas cards with you. I received the December Creative Kit from Pam from the kit club My Creative Scrapbook containing among others the "Gnome for Christmas" collection from Photo Play Paper, puffy phrase stickers from Pinkfresh Studio and a package with buttons from Pebbles. As I want to send my family and friends a "real" and handmade Christmas card this year, I decided to use the kit also to create some fun Christmas cards. 

These are the cards I created:

Here're the puffy phrase stickers, the buttons and the word stickers I used for my cards:

For the base of my 4" x 6" cards I chose a piece of kraft cardstock, a piece of patterned paper and a piece of red cardstock. 

Using red and yellow twine I tied little bows in the top buttons and knots in the rest of the buttons:

I adhered the red cardstock on top of the patterned paper and machine stitched all the sides of the red cardstock: 

With large glue dots I adhered the buttons in a "tree design" onto the red cardstock:

Below the button tree I placed on of the word stickers from the Photo Play Paper sticker sheet:

From the sheet with the Pinkfresh Studio "Oh What Fun" puffy phrases I chose a word that fitted the size of the card and adhered this below the word sticker and the button tree:

Using double sided sticky tape I adhered the card onto the kraft cardstock base:

And I was done!! Really loving the result! 

Here are a few close-ups of my cards:

Joyful | Pretty Little Studio

 Hello Pretty Little Studio friends! It’s Monique here today and I’m so happy it’s my turn on the blog to share my Christmas Cheer layout with you! For this layout I also used my watercolor paints and my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the cupcake. The photo is an oldie, from 8 years ago and isn’t very beautiful, but as it holds an important memory for me I decided to use it anyway.

I love the new Christmas Cheer papers and colors and love the combination with the vintage die-cuts like the dog die-cut I used here.

Isn’t she cute?! The red stitches below the photo is a clear sticker. Don’t they look exactly like the stitches from my sewing machine?

The cupcake is a cut file I got from Cut To You and I really love how it looks with the papers from the Holiday Cheer collection behind it.

Above the photo I adhered a few lines of journaling, typed with my pink We R Memory Keepers typewriter (love that you can type in two colors!). Behind the photo I added a journaling card from the “Holiday Promps” package and on the photo two word die-cuts.

At the top of the journaling card I adhered another piece of the clear “stitched” sticker.
Luckily I managed to fix my sewing machine (it broke down a week ago) so I was able to add a stitched line along all four sides of my layout. With the addition of the stitching my page was finished! Hope you like it.

Wishing you a wonderful week and thank you so much for stopping by! Don’t forget to take a look in the shop at this awesome Christmas Cheer collection!

Here’s a quick list of the PLS products I used:

My Creative Scrapbook December Creative Kit - Photo Play Paper "Gnome For Christmas"

 Hello friends! This month I received the December Creative Kit from Pam from My Creative Scrapbook. The kit contains the Gnome for Christmas collection from Photo Play Paper, puffy phrase stickers from Pinkfresh Studio, buttons from Pebbles, wood veneer words from Creative Embellishments and a fun stencil. 

Here's one of the layouts I created with the kit featuring my two sweet boys. 

Here are a few close-ups:

I so love all the gnomes in this kit! Like the one peeking over the edge of the photo:

Or this one with the antlers:
