Pretty Little Studio Christmas Cards

Hi everyone! This week I'm sharing a couple of Pretty Little Studio Christmas cards on the PLS blog. Are you still sending “real” cards or did you switch to digital greetings? I’m still doing paper Christmas cards and I love to use Pretty Little Studio’s papers, vellums, cards, stickers and die-cuts for them.

My “technique” is to use at least 5 different layers on a card. I start with a cardstock base that measures 5” x 5”. The next layer, the vellum, measures 5”too. All the next layers measure 0.5” smaller. Next I choose a die-cut that I want to use and then I start looking for smaller bits and pieces to add under or on top of it. The finishing touch is the faux stitched line. Hope you like them!

Aren't those die-cuts cute?? If you want to see more Pretty Little Studio die-cuts then hop over to the store to have a look!

Here're a few just to give you an idea:

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous week!

December Daily 2014 - Days 1 - 3 - Pretty Little Studio

If you're here for the Holiday Coffee Lovers Blog Hop, please go HERE.


Hi everyone! This week's picture challenge at Pretty Little Studio is an easy one for December! I think anything goes with this picture … a Christmas layout, Christmas cards, tags for Xmas presents and of course a “December Daily”, which is what I chose!! Pretty Little Studio’s wide range of Christmas papers, cards, die cuts, banners, flags, stickers, flairs … make for an awesome December Daily! Although I’ve mostly chosen products from the new Holiday Cheer collection, I’ve also used a lot of bits and pieces from older Christmas collections. They all go so well together!

For my cover page I used three different die-cuts, of which my favorite is the golden 25! The flair was adhered to the outside of the page protector as I don’t like how the plastic wrinkles if you put it inside. When I was ready with this page (and the next, which is on the back of this one) I inserted some of Pretty Little Studio’s beautiful “Starry Night Mix” confetti and machine stitched the page protector closed. Love the result!

And this is what the 1st spread looks like: Day 1:

and the close-ups:

And days 2 and 3:

Close-ups of Day 2:

And close-ups of Day 3:

Will you do a December Daily this month?? I  would love to see it!!

And now I would almost forget I made this for the PLS picture challenge! So here's the picture I used for the inspiration:

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous week!
