Christmas Cards

With Thanksgiving just passed and Christmas quickly approaching, now is the time to get cracking on those holiday cards!! Check out the new holiday papers from Heidi Grace (used on the cards below), Basic Grey, and SEI. They're amazing!! If you need some ideas, browse the display cards for some inspiration or pick up one of the new cardmaking magazines. And if you still feel like you need some help, sign up for Wednesday's class! You'll learn how to make 6 cards from a single piece of patterned paper (plus cardstock and a few embellies)! Here are the cards you'll take home, plus detailed instructions for mass producing more.

Bazzill Stitching Templates

Do you like the look of hand stitching but are too afraid to do it yourself on layouts and cards? Your solution has arrived... The new In Stitch'z templates by Bazzill are in at Keepsakes! There are TONS of designs to choose from as well as a piercing mat and color coordinated floss sets, too. Susan Beth just taught a class on how to use these amazing templates. If you missed the class, you'll want to stop in and see her cute layouts and pick up some templates to try yourself. If you attended the class, you already know how cool these things are!

Each template set comes with four separate cards that can be used over and over again. Floss sets come with 6 different colored flosses (48 yards total) and two needles.

The piercing mat is 12.5 x 6.5 inches and is perfect for use with any sort of paper piercer.

If you feel like branching out once you've tried In Stitch'z and want some more inspiration, check out this tutorial on hand stitching. She uses stamps instead of the templates, but has some great ideas for incorporating multiple thread colors, brads, flowers, and more.
