This week's episode is a blast from the past. I did not want to skip this die set because it has so much to offer in an over the top shaker card. For how complicated this looks when finished, it is actually very easy to make. All of my cards in the showcase use Brightly Gleaming and First Frost DSP. These were the cards I made last year for family and some cardpals so I will not be using them...

This is another great Christmas kit. I like how they made the card bases slightly larger than A2 size so you get more material out of them. Same with the envelopes. I also love the sturdy foil words which I discover a great alternative use for them, be sure to watch the video to see this fun idea. The video is a long one and the showcase is HUGE. Video Length 41 min 27 sec.

World Cardmaking day was a busy day for me. I went through my "almost finished" pile and completely prepped and packaged about 60 cards that were in various stages of completion.

I have set aside about half a dozen cards that were still in the very beginning stages of creation to work on later.

Next I put the non-WICW cards away and while doing that I found a left over...

Wow... I mean really, Wow! Watch the video to see my reaction when I open this kit. I want to spend some quality time with all of these bits, so I published the prep with some prep tips, four basic and four focals to get the ball rolling. I will break out the kit once we get moved and will spend some quality time making backgrounds and focals of all types and will get it posted by Friday!...

Below are all of the measurements I can think of. I include them in the video as well. Please leave a comment if I missed...

I can see a trend developing with this series. It seems I run out of time before I can get all of the cards finished for showcase pics. Though not intended, I am splitting these into two part episodes so I don't feel rushed to finish. I enjoy the finishing process and make each card individually so need the extra time. Not to mention that I am a very slow crafter.

Parcels & Petals...
