Christmas Cards Using Everyday Collections

Posted by Jennifer Snyder

Hello. Jennifer Snyder here to show you some Christmas cards I created using nontraditional papers. Such a great way to stretch the crafting budget and utilize your scrapping supplies. We all love grabbing a bargain when we see one. This is why we LOVE Blitsy, right? It's why we check back everyday and get excited when we see our favorite brands being offered. Likewise, when I fall in love with a paper collection, I want to use as much of it as I can.


It's actually quite easy to use non-traditional papers to create a cozy holiday feel.I snagged some of the warm, beautiful BoBunny Madeleine products recently featured on Blitsy (they're back again today!) Most definitely not traditional and yet, they work beautifully.
