Jingle Belles Rock

Sometimes, when people first hear that we ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ make one holiday card per week, every week, starting New Year's Day and ending around Thanksgiving, they think it's a pretty crazy idea. And who knows? They may be right, but we've got two excellent reasons for staying crazy:

Reason #1: We get to spend eleven months marveling over the amazingly beautiful and creative ideas our fellow Belles think up... and link up!


Reason #2: We get to spend December doing... well... whatever the heck we want; instead of stressfully mass-producing holiday cards!!!

The bottom line is: we know this works for us! If you know it works for you, too, or even if you just think it might... we cordially invite you to meet us back here at 12:01am, January 1st, 2015 when we'll kick off our fifth year (!) of holiday card-making festivities! For now, we'll leave you with our favorite pics of the year, the official card piles which represent the 2014 ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ season:

Meanwhile, we thank everyone who came along to hang out with us this year, and wish you all the very happiest and healthiest of holiday seasons!

PS: We'd love to see ♥YOUR♥ card pile, so why not link up a photo?! Or, if you're still working on cards, consider this "Anything Goes" and link your gorgeous holiday creations, and leave some love to your favorite card artists!

Christmas Delicious

What a delicious Christmas Feast you created for us at Jingle Belles.  Here are a few that we thought were particularly scrumptious.


created a card wtih a merry little Christmas Pudding ... isn't he adorable.


shows how you can use little stamps to make a big statements ... her rows of perfectly colored presents & gingerbread men are a delight.

combined glitter, burlap, rick rack & sequins for an adorable holiday design ... and that gingerbread man looks good enough to eat.

A huge thanks to everyone who helped make another year of Jingle Belles a roaring success ... we hope you've enjoyed taking back December ... one holiday card at a time.
