I’m sad to say this is my last video in my 2016 Same but Different Christmas Card Series for this year. And for my final set of cards I’ve gone with a theme, and today we are ‘Keeping it Warm’.
I was asked to create some ‘warm weather’ cards because you may have guessed that I live in Australia and typically our weather is hot at Christmas. And I know crafter’s that struggle with the concept of snow flakes on Australian Christmas cards, yes, Linda I’m talking about you lol. This is also the lady you can blame for me starting my own blog and submitting for publications, I feel very lucky to call her a friend and an inspiration.
Thanks so much for all your support and encouragement, I have thoroughly enjoyed creating this series and I hope that you may have been inspired along the way too. I still have a few more Christmas shares before ‘C’ Day so I look forward to seeing you again real soon, Hugs

It’s Week 5 in my‘2016 Same but Different Christmas Card Series’ and today is about about One Layer Cards! There are a few tricks that can be used to take one layer designs to the next level and today I will share a few of my faves.
The best thing about creating a One Layer Card (other than the challenge of creating exactly what you want in only one layer) is that it is easy to post and with crossed fingers it will arrive at it’s final destination in one piece and without any extra postage cost.
I’ll be back next week with the final in this series!

Welcome back, and we are already into Week 4 of my Christmas Card Series for 2016, can you believe it! And today it’s all about ‘mass production’ and you all know that sometimes it’s a necessary ‘evil’ lol. but with some slight tweaks they can all be ‘the Same but Different’.
There are some great advantages to mass production, the pressure is ‘off’, you don’t have to rethink every card design and while the goodies are out, making multiples of a design certainly is a time saver. Finally, if it means that your friends and family can receive a hand made card from you this Christmas, that is truly a bonus and I will tell you right now that they will appreciate it, it does not matter that the cards are similar or even the same!
See you again real soon! Hugs,

Welcome back to Week 3 in my Same but Different Christmas Card Series for 2016. today is all about keeping the same basic design but changing up the elements to make each card look unique. I have used some cute Penny Black products, because you can always use some cute Christmas cards right?
You don’t have to reinvent the wheel with every card, it’s easy when you keep the same basic design and just change up the elements. In no time at all you can create a set of cards that are all different!
Thanks so much for stopping by today, of course I’ll be back again real soon,

Back with another video sharing six more cards in my 2016 Same but Different Christmas Card Series and today I decided to play with just one stamp set to create a set of CAS cards. This card set is for the Scrapbook Boutique blog and you can find the deets here.
You don’t need to have a stack of supplies to create different cards, just one fabulous stamp set and you are good to go!
You can find all the products linked below, or you can head on over to Scrapbook Boutique and maybe do a little Christmas shopping (for yourself). Have you started your cards yet, let me know how you are going?
I’m so excited to be back this year with my Same but Different Christmas Card Series. If you were here last year then you know that this series can contain many different ideas / themes / styles… well, almost as long as it is the ‘Same but Different’ .
Today I thought I would kick things off with a theme, so lots of different products and every card unique but all with a similar theme and colour palette, all to make creating so much quicker and easier.
