The Christmas Card Adventure Begins!

Hello Crafty Friends!

If you're a crafter, Christmas might be your biggest time of the year. There are so many ideas and so many possibilities. And, you need to start early. This blog post is all about the cards. I'm offering lots of Christmas card making classes this year, so that participants can have fun AND get the work done.

If you're interested in attending or in to go options, check out all the info on my social media sites or my web site, click here. Or send me an email at

This is a picture laden post, if you need more specific details on "how to" or what Stampin' Up! product was used, just ask, I'd be happy to pass on that info.

So, my friends, sit back for a moment and enjoy...

My first Christmas card class got us going strong, we made 20 quick and easy, mailable cards.
4 each of 5 designs.

A few close ups:

Here's some of that lovely Stampin' Up! designer series paper.

Here's what 144 Christmas cards look like before they're assembled:

Card's so pretty!

Here are the happy and accomplished class goers:

One friend got a flat tire and couldn't come, so the next week, I took the class to her! We met at a Panera, half way between our houses as she lives a bit away from me. We had a great time chatting and putting the cards together. We even had to get a bit creative when I realized I had forgotten a few acrylic blocks. We used a stamp case, and my phone!

Christmas card class number 2 featured a few cards that were a bit more involved. 
We made 2 each of 5 designs. ( 1 each of the stitched cards).

The stitched cards are from a Stampin' Up! kit. Super cute, and everything is prepped for you. (The hardest part was threading the needle).

And a few close ups:
This one might be my favorite. I love this bear!

This tree is from the stamp set Lovely As A Tree, it's an oldie but a goodie, in the annual catalog.

A shaker card! Look for a post with a how to video next week.

This class was a lot of fun! 

All in all, the Christmas crafty season is off to a great start!

The Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog is amazing!
