Getting Started

Picture this: a cozy crafting nook, a cup of hot cocoa, and a desk scattered with festive supplies. That's the scene I set for myself when diving into this card-making adventure. The Merry Pattern Paper Pack not only brings a festive touch but also ensures that every card feels like part of a matching set. Pair that with the Home Scene Stamp Set – you've got the perfect combo for spreading holiday cheer.

Tips and Tricks for Efficiency

Now, let's talk efficiency – because we all want to make beautiful cards without spending our entire day on it. Organize your workspace, plan ahead, and use those scraps wisely! Trust me; it makes a world of difference. With this pack of pattern paper I found it super easy to mix and match the designs to create six unique card designs using the template for November.

I like to cut all my paper first and then put them in little stacks of all the same sizes. I then will get one pattern from each size and mix and match them. And since this is one sided pattern paper I can pick the three patterns that I loved the most without regret.
