Christmas all year!

I’ve started a challenge blog for making Christmas cards all year. If you make one (or more) Christmas card a week during the entire year, you don’t have to panic in December when it’s time to mail the cards. You can find the blog at Jul Hela Året (the Swedish words for Christmas All Year). It’s all in Swedish, but it’s open for anyone anywhere in the world. Just use Google translater, which might cause some very odd and funny translations, but at least it would give you a clue what the current challenges are about.

Here’s my cards for all the challenges that’s been this far:


Rubber stamps: Kortmakaren


Tiny Santas rubber stamp – Nordic Artstamps (company no longer exists)
Washi tape – Slöjd-Detaljer and mt masking tape


Snowflake stickers – docrafts
Merry Christmas rubber stamp – Hero Arts


God Jul border clear stamp – Panduro Hobby (no longer available)
Ribbon – unknown
