Hello Crafty Friends.

Today I’m making some quick and easy Christmas cards using the Simple Stories Mix & A Mingle card kit

Simple Stories Mix & A-Mingle Card Kit

I love Simple Stories card kits because they are so easy to use and you can make several cards pretty quickly. These card kits are perfect for beginner cardmakers, however, if you have been a cardmaker for a long time, these are also fun to use. I really enjoy card kits like this because I don’t have to think about the card design and measurements. I don’t have to cut the paper and I don’t have to think about what ephemera and papers go together because everything is ready to go out of the package. The card designs are already planned out for you and the papers are already cut to size. There is an instruction sheet and all of you have to do is follow the instructions to assemble the cards.

The Simple Stories Mix & A-Mingle card kit includes everything you need to make 8 Christmas cards. It contains pattern paper already cut to size, 46 chipboard pieces, 59 die-cut bits & pieces, (8) A2 size white card bases (4 1/4 x 5 1/2″), and complete step-by-step instructions. You don’t even need scissors because everything is perforated so you just need to pull it apart from the backing sheet. All you need is adhesive!

If you would like to see everything that is included in the card kit and how easy it is to make the cards, check out my video below or on YouTube.

Below are pictures of all of my completed cards.

26 Christmas Cards | Violet Studio Christmas Cardmaking Kits

Hello Crafty Friends.

I’m excited to share some new Christmas-themed products with you from Violet Studio. Violet Studio has several Christmas cardmaking kits, papers, stamps, embossing folders, pattern paper, ephemera, a stocking kit, a banner kit, an embroidery kit, and more! All of this is available over at Scrapbook.com. If you would like to see an unboxing of some of the Christmas products that were sent to me by Scrapbook.com, take a look at my video below.

If you are looking for some super easy Christmas cards to make, then check out the Violet Studio Nutcracker Collection – Christmas Cardmaking Kit. This kit includes 10 card blanks that measure 6″ x 6″ and 10 beautifully foiled envelopes. There are 10 decoupage sheets, 10 sheets with cut-outs to pop up the design on the card fronts, adhesive foam pads, and an instruction sheet.

Here are the two cards that I made with the Violet Studio – The Nutcracker Cardmaking Kit.

These cards were so easy to create — just separate the pieces at the perforated lines and attach them to the card front. The pieces are numbered so it’s easy to see where they go.

Use the foam pieces that are included in the kit to layer the pieces and you’ll have a card with lots of dimension!

You can add your own embellishments too! On the snow globe card on the left, I added the Scrapbook.com White Pops of Color on top of the snowflakes for added dimension.

I also made a lot of cards using the Violet Studio Home for Christmas Card Making & Stamping Kit as well as the Violet Studio Home for Christmas Diecutting & Embossing Kit.

The Card Making & Stamping Kit contains a stamp set, stickers, ephemera, a pattern paper pad, pom poms, and 6″ x 6″ card bases and envelopes that are already decorated for you.

The Diecutting & Embossing Kit contains two embossing folders, a few dies, embellishments, ribbon, and 6″ x 6″ blank card bases and envelopes.

Since everything in this collection goes together, I decided to combine the two kits to create my 24 cards.

In addition to the kits above, I also brought in some solid cardstock from Scrapbook.com. I used the Scrapbook.com Peppermint Smooth Cardstock and the Scrapbook.com Christmas Smooth Cardstock. I thought that the colors in these two paper pads really complemented the pattern paper pad well.

If you would like to watch my design process for all 24 cards I made with the Home for Christmas kits, then watch my video on YouTube or below.
