The Home Sweet Home Thinlits make a very cute little house with decorations for a spooky house, a dog house, or a Christmas gingerbread house. You can use just the front of the house from the set, but I wanted a 3-D house to fold flat and fit in an envelope. I saw one “Crafted by Helen.” Here’s my version.

These treat bags are quick and easy to make. You can punch a hole and tie with the ribbon, but I used hidden thin magnets. The bag will hold four Hershey’s Kisses or a diamond ring.

Direct link to the magnets on Amazon

or search for “Basic Grey Magnetic Discs small”

I also show in the video how to make a cord with the Copper Metallic Thread.

This box is so very beautiful! The Cable Knit folder gives such an impressive texture. Of course, you could expand the gift card to be a full greeting card and putting the embellishment from the box onto the card.

The directions and video show how to make envelopes large enough for the 2 3/4″ cards and small enough for the 3″ box.

I fell in love with this stamp set and the coordinating Framelits. I knew this would be the stamp set for my Christmas cards this year. But I showed this version with my Stampin’ group. It really is a quick project and there are not big lumps to require extra postage.  You can make this card in time for this Christmas even if you have a big list.

The stepped up version is shown here.

I’ve included the directions for both versions.

Yep. I’ve got my Christmas cards done and we’re still a week away from Thanksgiving.

The video just shows a couple of quick tips, not how to make the cards themselves. But I am including the directions and the supply list.

I assemble all the parts at once and then assemble them. I keep each part in a little box and I show how to make a quick custom box.

I also share a tip to make getting all those cards into the envelope easily.

I have all the names and addresses for my Christmas cards in an Excel spreadsheet. Here’s how to use the Merge feature in Mailings (in Word) that I use to address all my envelopes. I just set up one envelope the way I want it. I always change the color to match my cards.  The video shows how I use a different spreadsheet to make my labels, but the process is the same.

Here’s the direct link to a video I did earlier showing how to use the RGB Codes to print in Stampin’ Up! colors.

Here’s another video showing my assembly line for Christmas cards and tips.

Here’s a chart for planning how much product to order.
