“All I want for Christmas is you!”, yes, Mariah will be belting out her tunes in my house soon enough, especially with snow headed our way tonight…. Okay, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, no, I do not put up my tree until after Remembrance Day and usually my birthday on the 15th, then it’s free game!!! But in the mean time, my Christmas card club starts next week!! For several years I have run a club consisting of 3 classes of 12 cards each for a total of 36 cards completed over 3 nights. A class at the end of the months of September, October and November so they are done early enough for that that want to send in the mail.
I always plan my classes based around a combination of what inspires me (if it doesn’t, who is coming up with the ideas for the class?) and what I think the ladies that have been coming to my club for years will enjoy. This year I chose the Label punch with the Labels of Love stamp set to match the punch, the Carols of Christmas bundle, the Christmas sweaters and the Christmas in the Making (I love to color and so do many of my ladies) so there had to be a set where we get to color. I am loving the new embossing paste so that will get in the mix and I always do some heat embossing in my classes too; there is so much wow factor to heat embossing, it makes anything pop!
For all my event information and to RSVP, please like my Facebook Page!
So where are my three samples for my upcoming class that is this Tuesday.
I have decided that I don’t really like this on the soft suede card stock so I’ve decided to stick with whisper white.
Posts to follow with detail each card with the supplies required for the card. I’m working on becoming a YouTube sensation (yeah, right!) so once I have that under control I will regularly film as well. Here is my YouTube channel, click here!!
So as a reward to myself for getting my samples done and all my cutting/prep work, tomorrow I get to pack to head of to a 2 day crop! On Friday and Saturday you will find me at Spruce Meadows in Calgary at the Scrapbook Carnival hosted by Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Watch for a post of all the fun!!
