Christmas in July Stamp - a - stack


Get a head start on your Christmas cards this year by coming to my  Christmas in July Stamp - a - stack classes.  We will be making 9 cards altogether, 3 cards each of 3 designs as pictured above.  There will be one small difference in one of the cards, an improvement actually.  The blue card base will be embossed with the polka dots embossing folder instead of being stamped with the Polka Dot backgound stamp so we will get to use the Big Shot at the class!!  Back when I designed this card, I didn't have the embossing folder so that's why the one in the photo is stamped. These cards are quick and simple and would be easy to mass produce and you have heaps of time before December - so no excuses for BUYING cards this year!  The details of the class are as follows, contact me to reserve your place and please indicate which one of the 2 classes you would like to attend.

What:                                9 Christmas cards (3 each of 3 designs) including envelopes

Welcome to my blog!

This is where I plan to share my cards, scrapbook pages and other creations with you.  I have been an Independent Stampin' Up Demonstrator since October 2007 and have loved every moment of it.  As my children have gotten older (my baby was 1 when I signed up and is off to prep next year - OMG!) I have been able to devote more time to my hobby / business / obsession. I have been running classes from my home for the last 12 months and doing demonstration workshops at other peoples homes for the last few months.

If you are interested in doing a class, check my calendar, or if you are interested in hosting a workshop and earning some great benefits, (you can read all about it under the "Host a Workshop" tab at the top)  contact me.

This card is something typical of what we do as a make and take card at a workshop.

This card is made with one of my favourite stamp sets, "Baroque Motifs" in one of my favourite colour combos - Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette and Very Vanilla and it also uses the 2 step bird punch from the Autumn Winter Mini.
