Few more Christmas Cards and Christmas mini books

Hi all,

I hope you all had a nice Christmas and looking froward to a New Year now. I would like to share with you my last Christmas cards I did and few Christmas gifts I made:

In these cards like in all others I did this year I am using my Hero Arts musical background stamp, new Tim Holtz seasonal distress inks, Tim Holtz dies and I used Spellbinders label die with matching stamp by Waltzing Mouse Stamps. The flowers are some very old I had in my stash and holly leaves are cut by hand. 

Everybody was getting some big gifts for teachers or some people were even collecting money to buy a gift or something and a card from the class, since my kids used to go to a private school this custody was a bit strange to me but I decided I would just go for something hand made instead of material gifts. So my daughter did a cards (pity I did not take a photos of them) and I made a few Christmas themed minibooks. I hope they liked them, please forgive me bad photos as I finished them at 3 a.m. and only took some snaps with my iPhone.

And some photos of inside of the books:

In these I used Stack the Deck Binding technique presented by Laura from The Paper Trail . It is very easy binding to do and very professionally looking.
Items used here are:
  1.  K & Co papers
  2. Tim Holtz dies and distress inks
  3. Martha Stuart and Fiskars Punches
  4. Hero Arts Stamps
  5. Spellbinders dies
  6. Waltzingmouse Stams
And one more very simple book again done in a last minute for my lovely childminder:

For this book I used same K & Co. papers, A6 envelopes for pages, just covered them with papers and made tags. She is very creative herself I am sure she will have no problems in finishing this book up.

That would be all for now, hope you liked my projects.
