On The Third Day of Christmas with DCWV~

A way to display the cards you sent me!

All of the designers for DCWV are celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas with DCWV, so make sure you check out their projects here.

I was given the Third Day, so I decided to incorporate the number three several ways.

Of course the first is my title, HO3.

How cute it that saying? You can find it in the Heirloom Christmas Stack.

The second being the Three R’s of Recycle, Reduce, and Reuse.

My album is made not only from the many wonderful DCWV Christmas stacks, but it’s also made from the Christmas cards we received last year from friends and family.

I love this idea!

Because I save everything. And I mean everything!

I have boxes and bags and tubs of cards.

So, my project inspired by this SimpleMom post is perfect for giving new life to the many treasured cards we receive.

My album~

To make my album I simply matted the cards onto various papers and embellished.

I love that I had additional surfaces to add pictures and that I was able to see the handwritten notes to each of us.

Isn’t this a much better way to save all those cards than in a box stored on a shelf somewhere?

And by the way did anyone spot my Three French Hens?

DCWV The Traditional Holiday Stack, The Crafty Christmas Stack, The Winter Holiday Stack from Michaels
DCWV The Evergreen Stack and The Heirloom Christmas Stack from Joanns
DCWV The Christmas & Winter Tag Stack and Christmas Box of Cards

  1. I didn’t spot your Three French Hens, but, I did spot MY card!!!!!!!! And, can I just tell you that I LOVE that you put a pic of you & our LM on MY card!!!!!!! This is a great project & you’re absolutely right…what a much better way to keep & remember our cards than in a box on a shelf! Thanks for the inspiration!!!

  2. I posted on my blog the other day Countdown to Christmas day 13 under something special to do, that this would be a good idea, I found the idea on Close to my Heart blog, but I love the way you did yours so much better, I was going to just add covers and decorate them, but this is so cool, I may just add a lot more than covers. Love this, thanks for sharing it. Have a great day.

  3. I think i like this ideal, as you could organize this by each year and look back at those cards…. thanks for sharing and great embellishments with pp.
