A New Look for the New Year

We're getting ready to start our 12th Jingle Belles season at 12:01am, January 1st, 2022. So it seems only right to start the New Year off with a brand new blog header and badges! 

Design by Lauren Bergold, featuring products from Katie Pertiet Designs, including Botanical Christmas 01 Blendable Layers and ArtOptions Blendable Layers 01; free fonts from are Dalmais, Helo Xmas and Bohemian Typewriter; Over the Rainbow Glitter Styles by Studio Flergs are out of print, but there are some nice ones at Sweet Shoppe Designs.

It's a Wrap!

Hard to believe we've wrapped up another Jingle Belles season already, it seems like 2021 has just flown past! 

Below is Lauren's traditional beginning of December sprawling card pile photo, featuring all the holiday cards she made this year.  

She's looking forward to writing, addressing, and sending them out into the world; then on January 1, 2022 we'll start the whole thing all over again... and we'd love for you to join us!  ((Stephanie got so excited about having her cards done, she mailed them before she remembered to take her annual photograph).


Just to spur you on if you've not quite finished making holiday cards, here's one last link-up. We'll leave it open until December 24th, so you can show off those last few masterpieces and check out what everyone else is making. Wishing you the happiest of Decembers... see you on January 1, 2022!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Blog Header Heroes

We loved seeing how you were inspired by Lauren's impeccably designed Jingle Belles Blog Banner. Here's a trio of our favorites:

incorporated holiday trees, snow flakes, glitter and 
wonderful shades of green into her fabulous card design.

created some Alcohol Ink magic in all shades of green and
perfectly paired it with snowflakes, bling and a die cut frame.

added impressive amounts of both texture and upcycled 
elements in her elegant winter snowscape.


Many thanks to everyone who played along on the last 2021 OFFICIAL Jingle Belles challenge. 
We'll be back at midnight with a wrap up post and photos of our cardpiles from this fun season!
