My Christmas gift for my Mother-in-law




I had some trouble deciding on a Christmas gift for my lovely mother-in-law. She doesn't desire more "stuff" and a gift card seems so unthoughtful. I decided to go with a homemade gift early on but didn't know what I was going to make. A few days ago we were shopping and wandering a bit at Costco and I stumbled across a kit for making greeting cards, I didn't buy it but it did inspire me to make a greeting card set with cards for several different occasions. I think it will be the perfect gift for Greg's mom this Christmas. One of the advantages is that I was able to clean out my stash of card making items at the same time, I used up some old cards and scrap paper that I've had for months. I made 25 cards altogether and organized them in a photo holder with tabs. With a little ribbon, paper and a Christmas tag the gift is too cute and functional too!

I absolutely love your blog. This is a perfect gift for my mohter in law and makes use of scrap paper from finished layouts. Thanks
