Starting Over

When my kids were young, their cousin would shout out "Starting Over" if she didn't like how a game was going (i.e. she wasn't winning). I feel like that. Woot!, I had 2 really successful craft shows but yikes!, I sold all of my Christmas cards. So it is starting over for my own use. And I am low on Christmas paper so the challenge of "leftovers" from The Kraft Journal is just the thing for me.
The papers are actually 2 years leftovers from some DCWV Christmas packs. The stars are a die from Sizzix for SU. I traced over the snowflakes in the stars with a green gel star pen to give a little sparkle. And for some texture to the background ran the cardstock through Big Shot with a star embossing folder.
I have enough scraps to whip out about 4 more of these and then just 30+ more to go.
Because following a sketch is faster than deciding something on my own, I used this sketch from The Paper Players


  1. Congratulations on your successful craft shows. Great card today! I'm still making Christmas cards myself.

  2. The papers are pretty! I have years and years of leftovers that date further back then 2 years. Thank you so much for sharing your Christmas creation with us at The Kraft Journal.
