12 Days of Home for the Holidays Welcomes Jennifer Gallacher!

If you know Echo Park you know designer and Two Peas in a Bucket Garden Girl Jennifer Gallacher.  Jen is uber talented paper artist, designer, and teacher.  I'm excited to Welcome Jennifer Gallacher.

Hi, everyone! Jen Gallacher here to share some holiday ideas with you as you enjoy this special season. As a paper crafter, scrapbooker, and card maker, I'm all about the creative side of things. Part of my enjoyment during the holidays is the ability to create things for the people I love. This year I created 10 holiday cards which I will give to both family and friends. For each of the cards I created a start-to-finish video to help show you the process I used for creating the cards.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the cards you'll find in these video tutorials:



Here's a link to the 10 holiday card videos:
Card #1: Have a Very Merry Christmas
Card #2: Greetings
Card #3: Happy Holidays
Card #4: Dreaming of You
Card #5: Photo Card
Card #6: Gift Card Trio
Card #7:
'Tis the Season
Card #8: Noel
Card #9: Winter Wishes
Card #10: Peace
