Christmas Cards Cannibalized:Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge!

I was having a bad mojo day this week. I was trying to make a card for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge, and it was not coming together as planned. It was the kind of day where I colored and layered and assembled, but to no avail. I could not make a decent card, no matter how hard I tried. I left the failed attempts on my craft table and called it a day.

I went back to the sad cards today and decided to cannibalize them. That's one of the fun things about paper crafting. It's just paper! You can cut it up and have fun with it. No rules, just right!

I decided that the images would look much cuter on tags, so I cut them down to size, added a few accents, and came up with something that was much nicer than the original product.

{Today's Brew: Folkal Points stamp set (Paper Smooches), PTI card stock, gingham paper from Simple Stories, amuse ribbons, prisma markers, felt flower (Maya Road), button, paper doilies}


  1. The cannibalized cards look great!! I love the doily cut up and the great gingham paper 😊 I think my favorite is the one with the house. I love your blog festive!

  2. Adorable! When admiring these tags you would never know that your mojo was missing earlier. Love them all but of course the bird tag is my fav, right along with the babushka one. She is darling!
    Merry Christmas & take good care of yourself!

  3. These are sooooo cute! LOVE the use of our colors!! THANKS for joining in the fun and playing along with us over at the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge--hope you will join in the fun again this week!!! Merry CHRISTmas!!!
