shape up!

we've decided to "shape up for the holidays" this fortnight at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ but don't worry, there's no diet or exercise involved! instead we're just making shaped cards: round cards, heart or star cards, shaped like stockings or gingerbread houses or snow globes; basically anything but a standard square or rectangle is fair game! with all of those choices, you'd think i'd come up with something especially creative, right? nope. round card, like usual, lol!

patterned paper: authentique, plus a bit of crate paper woodgrain; stickers: simple stories, making memories, basic grey, american crafts; silk poinsettia: we r memory keepers; velvet holly leaves: petaloo; red cardstock mats: core'dinations; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, gluedots, sewing machine

ok, no, i'm not one of life's natural engineers, so the fancy folds and super-cool shaped cards i love --and drool over-- on pinterest rarely become things i actually make, lol. i do have a pretty fancy idea for next week, though, i promise! in the meantime, please accept this standard 6" round card, built around authentique's gorgeous, retro-inspired, "jingle" collection that i got at my lss, paper anthology, in kenvil, nj. i should probably apologize in advance for how often you're going to be seeing these papers, because they're my favorite thing right now!

meanwhile, stephanie has an awesome card to show you as well, why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and treat yourself to some inspiration?!
