"I'm not a huge cardmaker but on the other hand I would like to send some cards to my closest friends. So I made series of fast to make cards. Based on few pieces of paper some branches and few chipboards. I made two traditional ones from St. Nicholas collection and two from Cafe Parisian - this proves that any papers can be use for Christmas projects if they have proper glittery companion :)" ~Olga

Tip for this month – you cannot have to much glitter on Christmas projects so don't hold yourself. Try to sprinkle glitter on wet paint, gesso or ink and enjoy all that sparkle :)

"Every children is an angel, and we know that because of their smiles. And they have wings and pure heart! I have imagined this little boy during christmas time, having fun in a enchanted frosty forest! Evrything sparkles with a touch of aqua and gold frosty embellishments! I have made a special canvas that can be used as a Christmas Home decor! " ~Nico Scrap

The angel card is gorgeous, and it seemed simple watching the video.

Beautiful projects; love all of the snow and glitter!!!

I love the projects today. I even bought one from one of your posts. Dec. 27th is my 60th birthday so maybe I win your Great Give a way. Thank You

Wow, these cards are simply Stunning! I really love the Cafe ParisIan ones, soft and beautiful. The frame project uses gorgeous colors too, so pretty and inspiring.

Great presentation by both designers.... Well done ladies!!!

What lovely cards from Olga - don't know which is my favourite !
Nico's angel frame is gorgeous too - thank you both.

I really love Olga's frosty creations. Living in so GA, they bring a real touch of Christmas to me.

Those are truly gorgeous - love all the layering. I'm going to have to print these off and keep for further study! :)

I now have a new favorite saying: Do Anything but Let it Produce Joy. How beautiful! And these projects today are simply stunning works of art.
Merry Christmas to all!

Nico's Angel creation is darling! I love angels and this is so lovely!
Olga's trio of cards are spectacular! TFS!

Love the cards!

Fantastic. Love all of the glitter.
The second is plain but darling.
thanks for sharing.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

So much glitter and snow! Beautiful! And thanks for showing us how to think "outside the box"!!!

I love Olga's cards and Nico's decor project! Both did an excellent job of creating Christmas themed items using non-holiday papers. Thanks for such great inspiration!

How delicate and scrumptious these are. xxx

WOW these cards are stunning!!!

Beautiful projects. Love the frosty look of Olga's.

Olga and Nico thank you for these gorgeous projects and inspiration to think outside of the box! Love Graphic 45!!

These are beautiful!!! Thank ou for the tutorials. Merry Christmas. :-)

Such beautiful projects by Olga and Nico; yes very creative use of papers from other collections.
Wow Olga's frosty cards are full of detail and she says quick ?? Did you see those layers ??!

Very beautiful projects! Most of my cards were done with traditional colors this year, but I did have some with blue and white or silver - that's a beautiful combination! Also had an ocean-inspired one with pink and blue and a decorated seahorse!

They are all so pretty but the first 3 are my favorites.

All these projects
are so pretty and
full of festive cheer!
Merry Christmas.

If those are your Christmas cards, can I get on your Christmas card list? Hahaha I love the cards you've created. They're all so beautiful. Nico, beautiful project. Simple but elegant.

Beautiful cards

Fantastic work! Love it all! I wish you all a very Happy Christmas.

These cards are absolutely stunning!!!

Olga's cards are just breathtaking and she says they are fast to make?! They are so stunningly detailed! Nico's project is beautiful! I have a special place in my heart for angels. Thanks for sharing!

Everyone of my Christmas gifts this year has been handmade. Thanks to Graphic 45.

What a surprise to see Christmas cards made from 2 collections unrelated to the holiday! Bring on St. Nicholas...Santa and I were meant for each other!

Olga, your cards are simply stunning!

Lovely projects. Would love to win this fabulous paper.

I absolutely adore this paper line! Projects ranging from the simplest to the most ornate are just eye popping gorgeous!

So glad to see another chance to grey the St Nicholas collection. Very warm and cozy designs.

Love Olgas use of lots of frost and had to laugh that she said she just whipped out these cards. Pretty sure it would take me quite a while to do those. Nico's frame art is so lovely. So hope to win the St. Nicholas package.

Wonderful cards using wonderful paper!!!

Stunningly beautiful❣❤❣

Oh I love those snowflakes and trees to adorn the beautiful cards. I feel like I've stepped into a winter wonderland.

My favourite non traditional Christmas color is light blue and Olga's card is...😍😍😍lovely! Nico's card is so sweet too.
But I'm totally in love with St. Nicholas collection! I would like to win this set 😃.
