"Hope everyone is enjoying all the card-licious inspiration today on the blog. For those that are gearing up for the assembly line holiday card making I’d like to share a little tip to stretch your supplies.  

TIP: Consider layering your pattern papers using 4×4 and 3×3 squares to get the most out of your 12×12 papers. For A2 sized cards this will provide great coverage and layering over the card base. 

Happy crafting!" Virginia



"I have a hard time choosing between timeless, classic holiday card-making, and that of a more vintage, shabby chic nature….I love them both, so I’ve created a card for each of my loves 🙂  I’ve used Anna Griffin products on both and because of the pre-made card bases, complete with a lovely, printed pattern on the front, and a “Handmade By” spot on the back, holiday cards can come together in a snap.  All that’s left is the fun part…adding favorite embellishments and my greeting.  So if you’re mass producing your holiday cards this year, remember to create in a style you love.  That will make creating even more enjoyable.  And save time on simple things such as pre-made card bases, dimensional stickers, etc.  All you’ll have to do is add the adhesive and any extra embellishments you choose.  Happy Holiday Paper-Crafting!" ~ Melissa Phillips
