Sweet as Candy pages

I just listed some new stuff on e-bay (ID- pakratinator). This is a 2 page layout for Christmas, done in pink! The pictures are not a good as I would have liked, but it is cloudy and rainy here in MO. I am working on some more Christmas stuff and would love to make a lantern that I saw on My scrap chick facebook page. It is gorgeous!
I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving day!

Instructions for Easel card

I can't remember where I found it but it is by Beate Johns.
one 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock
one 4 1/2" square piece of cardstock
scoring tool
strong adhesive
Additional cardstock for inside and card front

Step 1. Score the 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock at 4 1/4" and 6 3/8"
Step 2. prefold all score lines. first fold the card in half, then fold the second score line (6 3/8")opposite from the 4 1/4" score line.
Step 3. Place cardstock on table with the 4 1/4" side down.
Add adhesive to the 2 1/8" x 4 1/4" section cardstock that is facing up.
Step 4. Adhere the 4 1/4"cardstock square to the card base.
Line up the top of the square with the top of the 2 1/8" x 4 1/4" section.
This creates the easel card base.
Step 5. Decorate the card front and the inside.
Step 6. To make the easel card stand up by itself, add an embellishment or an extra layer to the inside of your card. This will keep the card from closing.
Happy crafting!

Christmas Collage

My daughter went and got the girls picture made for Christmas and I couldn't decide which one to scrap so I scraped them all! :)
