Anything but a card: holiday style

Good morning bloggies!
Can you believe it's December 1st???
No? Me neither!
I had sorta hoped to do a December Daily this year,
but I don't know if that is actually going to happen...
I do however have this cute Christmas Card Holder to share with you all.
Wanna hear what I used??  Do ya do ya do ya??
Ok, I'll tell you!
For the chipboard under the green chevron paper is my Stovetop Stuffing Box!
The perfect size for this Christmas Card book. And great upcycling!
What is a Christmas Card book you say?
Well, it's a book to hold all those fab cards I'll be getting in the mail!
Cause lets be honest, they will otherwise end up in the trash or I'll save them with the intention of using this piece or that piece.
I love this little tag that I added with the year.
sorta chalkboardy, and sorta folksy!
And I had to show off this gorgeous glittery snow flake!
Oh yeah, There is a brand spankin new challenge over at Anything But a Card
You guessed it... it's Anything Goes!
lol lol I gotcha huh? you thought it was holiday??  Well it's anything goes, and maybe you wanna share your holiday creations as well??

And by all means, enjoy your holiday season!

  1. There are always good intentions with the Christmas cards!! I have bags and bags of previous years cards, just "waiting" to be recycled!! Love the book!! Thanks for joining us at Clear It Out Challenge blog, best of luck!

  2. What a fabulous idea and a gorgeous way to keep them safe until we decide what to do with them (if ever...)! Love this!

  3. What an absolutely clever project! It is the perfect mix of rustic and bling! The colors you chose were so eye-catching and I loved how you combined different fonts and patterns. You definitely have a creative eye and I was really inspired by both the concept of this project and its beautiful artistry. Thank you so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog!

  4. Fabulous idea, and love the way you have decorated the book. Thank you for playing along with us this week at BearlyMine Challenges. Good Luck. Jackie DT.
