Wanna see what we made?

Last Thursday night I had a fully booked class of gorgeous girls come along to my first Christmas Stamp-A-Stack for 2008. Last year I ran several of these and they were a big hit... after all, you get to make 6 Christmas cards for $15, and get a fun night out into the bargain. So I've just started running them again now that (dare I say it) we are over the half-way mark through the year and therefore in the lead up to Christmas. Yes, you heard me right. Scary isn't it?

So I thought you would like to see what we made this time around. We made 3 each of the two card designs above, and I was really happy with them, as were my guests. Very simple cards, but effective. One of my guests (hello Lyn!) suggested that we add some glitter to the Christmas tree card, and I have to say that it glammed the card up and made my original one look pretty boring. So we all ended up covered in glitter, but it was worth it! Here's a closer pic to show off the glitter:

The other card doesn't have all that much stamping, but uses lots of tools... the paper Crimper, the large and small star punches, and So Swirly jumbo wheel. You can do anything when you have the right tools. And quickly too. I found these ones so quick that I think I will be making up lots of them for Christmas this year.

If you would like to come along to one of these Christmas card-making nights and get on top of your Christmas cards early, then all you need to do is email me to let me know you'll be here. I hold the classes in my home at Narara on the Central Coast of NSW. The next Christmas StampAStack is scheduled for 7th August at 7.30pm... see over on my sidebar for other upcoming classes.

Have a great weekend!
