Regal make 12 month calendars with lots of space for decoration and journalling. If you don't have time for traditional scrapbooking, why not just take (or select) one photo from each month, list all the important things that happened, add some embellishments when you have a spare moment, and then, at the end of the year, you'll have a record of 2015 to treasure in the future. It may be "express" scrapbooking but I bet that the grandchildren in 2065 will love looking back at it!!
Alternatively, if there's a new baby in your life, or a child who has just started school, a month by month record now would be a great gift in a few years time E.g. 18th or 21st birthday!!!

|SUPER QUICK CHRISTMAS TREE CARDS|
Rule 2 - chose something really easy and just do it!!
These cards can be made in under five minutes each. Begin with a cut out Christmas tree from Regal (Kraft to the left, silver to the right), run it through an embossing machine in your favourite folder (not necessarily specifically Christmassy). Use foam tape (or a sticky square) to mount onto a premade Regal card ("Natural" or "Sparklelight" in our examples). Add a bow or rhinestone (or sticker) to the top and there you are - a finished card in just a few minutes! Your time starts now.............

|GINGERBREAD HOUSE CHRISTMAS CARD|
Basically, take one of Regal's square white cards, Add a triangle of card for the roof and then go wild with the decoration!!! I've kept this example fairly low key, using scrapbooking papers, a punched border, and white heart and greeting stickers, but you could use rhinestones, stamps, punched shapes or whatever you have at hand.
The gingerbread man was cut by folding a scrap of paper in half and cutting free hand until one turned out well enough to use as a template for the "real thing", but you could also trace around a biscuit cutter, use a stamp, or download something from the net. The white detail and border was added the old-fashioned way with a white gel pen.
If you didn't want a Christmassy theme, try adding turrets for a fairy castle or fort, or just make "a house"..........if you are doing it as a project with the kids, no doubt they'll have good ideas....but actually its rather a fun idea for us grown ups too.....perhaps as a "New Home" card?
