December - Merry Christmas

I'm still designing a few Christmas elements and cards. I'm starting to focus on Valentines day with a few romantic items.

But first - I've created door hanger cards to treat those you visit as you carol, Santa so he can deliver presents to houses with no fireplace, and don't forget the mailman and newspaper carriers!

All my cards are available as SVG and Studio Ready cutting files at

With Christmas fast approaching, I looked for new ways to make presents for friends and family. Since my husband is a hobby letterpress printer we have many old typeface and ornament catalogs. He loaned me two from 1925 which I then made cutting file derivatives.

The first is an angel which I added multiple layers of doilies to give it that feminine quality. I've included the original type cast. Purchase the cutting file at 

One of my most popular cutting files is the Iris over the edge. For Christmas I found a typecast of a poinsettia. I hope it will also be well received. Alone it could be used as an embellishment for scrapbooks or as part of a photo frame. I made it into a card with multi-layers framing the flower. Purchase cutting file here.

Even though it is Christmas, there are people falling in love, having birthdays, weddings and anniversary. 3D flowers on a card make stunning gifts. Using my embossing tool, foam for shaping and a little elbow grease I was able to add dimension to a bouquet of violets, another type cast. Purchase SVG cutting file here.

My last design takes me to Valentine's day. Yes, it will be here sooner then you think and just like Christmas cards we must think ahead. I love the Art Deco feel of this card. Its another Type cast which I have elaborated into a valentines theme. Purchase SVG cutting file here.

There are still many days left in December to get my designs. I change my 5 sale items every 3-4 days. Today the Type cast designs are on sale until 12/16/15.

Happy Crafting

What's with the name?

In 2012 I became a grandma. My daughter asked me what I wanted my granddaughter to call me. I never thought about this. I guess to keep things straight she could call me Grandma Henry. This might confuse her since she has a great grandma. I told my daughter that Gwen would name me. She did, I'm sure with the help of her mommy. I became Gammy and as she got older the "R" was added. Grammy, Grammy, Grammy.

When I retired I began making more cards. Many of them were with her in mind. My specialty is the popup form of cards. That has led me into a lot of research with the hopes of creating a popup book for my grand "children". This includes my nieces children.
