10 Months Until Christmas

 I'm trying to take my own advice and make a few Christmas cards each month, so that I will be prepared to send out my cards on time this year!   This was an easy card to make using a (retired) Stampin' Up! paper pack stack.  I cut the paper into one-half inch strips, then cut the strips into 1, 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2, 3, & 3 1/2 inch lengths.  Just add a stamped sentiment, 1/2 inch square for the trunk, and a star on the top and the card is complete.  Below are two cards using different patterns from the same paper pack.
If you like these cards, please leave a comment.  I will send enough supplies to make at least 2 of these cards to the first four people who comment on this blog post by February 28, 2015..  If you are not a regular customer of mine, please E-MAIL ME  with your mailing address.

Show & Tell

I encourage everyone who attends my stamp club classes to bring "Show & Tell" to our monthly meetings.  It is always fun to see what everyone creates with the supplies they have!

The card above was made by Jean.

Nancy M. made a bunch of these notebooks with cards inside for the secretaries at her school.  This was a project we made at stamp club back meeting in October 2013.  You can see the different versions of this project BY CLICKING HEREHERE, AND HERE

This card was made by Patti B. I love how she used the wood grain textured embossing folder  to make the cross.

CONTACT ME if you would like more information about my stamp club classes.

January's Homework

If you attend my monthly stamp club classes, then you know that I like to give homework.    It is a way to keep everyone stamping in between our monthly meetings.  This month's homework was to "alter" the cover of a pocket calendar like the one below.

Below are two examples that I showed them - to give them inspiration.  

I gave everyone a 6 1/2" x 5 " piece of Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper (a Sale-a-bration item that you can get FREE with a $50 order,)  They chose a coordinating strip of card stock, and ribbon from the Best Year Ever Accessory Pack (another Sale-a-bration item you can get FREE with a $50 order.)

Several stampers were very excited about this homework!  I can hardly wait for February's classes to see what they made.

PLEASE CLICK HERE   to see my calendar of events and to RSVP for my events.  New stampers are always welcome to join the fun!

CONTACT ME if you have any questions.
