Baby Cards - Christmas Cards - and Scrapbook Star

As I sit here typing, I have a 19 day old in a sling, as he refuses to be put down, unless he's sleeping. This is so unlike my other 2 babies, who were so content to be anywhere. First things first, here is our Baby Announcement cards that I just put in the mail yesterday. I made them before Will was born, but waited to get nice pictures done by Julie at Vine Images (my sister photographer in Burlington). The die cuts are Quickutz, and the fonts are printed.

Now comes all the Thank You cards. I really tried to keep it simple, and I found that using an embossed image that I could sand, gave a nice effect and looked pretty cool. :) Again, the sentiment is printed.

And now for this year's Christmas cards - I made about 40 of these, and they came together quite quickly. One night, watching TV, I used my Spellbinders to cut out all the circles. The stamps are Gel-a-tins ornaments and the sentiment is a Kim Hughes stamp by Cornish Heritage Farms. To save time, I bought pre-folded cards of all different colours, by DCWV. I found them at HomeSense for 7.99. I would do this again in a heart beat.

And for some great news - I made the design team for Scrapbook Star, an on-line shop and retail store in Montreal, Quebec, starting in January 2010. I am very exciting to be creating again on a design team - and they have monthly kits too! Being pregnant while working full-time drained me of all creativity, but now I'm pumped to get started again!

And now - time to attend to the little one.
