Paper Trail - Believe

Welcome to the October Paper Trail blog hop. If you arrived from Connie's blog, Scraps & Stories, you are right on path. If you are just getting started with me let me tell you, you have some great art in store! 

This month our featured Close to my Heart paper packet is "Believe." I know, I know, it seems a bit soon to be bringing out the Christmas papers already. However, as an experienced paper crafter, you know that when it comes to Christmas, it's never too early to start! 

I'd like to share the Christmas Activity Box we are making in one of my October workshops. The My Creations Memory Game is a box filled with 24 chip board "coasters." I made a pocket on each coaster to put a little tag in. The tags have an activity for every day from December 1st to Christmas eve. What a great way to build excitement through the season and make the focus on whatever you wish by the activities you include. 

My numbers, shapes and tags on each coaster, as well as the "ho, ho, ho" on the lid are all cut with our cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. Can I just tell you my cricut has had such a work out since I got this cartridge?  I am loving it! 

Finally, here is a broad view of the papers included in the Believe Level 2 paper pack. I love the fun & brightness of this holiday paper! 

Now follow the trail on over to Pam's blog, P-Inks, for some more holiday inspiration!


  1. Love the idea of pockets on all the cards!!! Great idea!!! I would neter have thought of that!!! Cricut cartridge is perfect with this set but your little advent box is wonderful!!

  2. Great idea for an advent project! Love it!

  3. Fun, fun project! I love that you did pockets and could easily change out the tags over the years if you ever wanted to. Smart & cute!

  4. It's a BOXY kind of month I see! LOL Love this - you did a fabu job!

  5. LOVE the box!! And I love the tag idea, instead of having specific items on specific numbered days!! It makes it possible to change from year to year! WONDERFUL!!!
