November Stamp a Stack

Here are the cards we made this week at the Stamp a Stack. There were five Christmas cards and five other cards. As you can see we used the Top Note Die for the Christmas cards. They were quick and simple to make, and I think they are very effective.

These next five cards I tried to make them varied to suit male, child and female with an engagement, wedding or anniversary one thrown in there for good measure.

I think everyone liked them and had fun making them. Our next Stamp a Stack is on 9th December and we will be making Ten Christmas cards. Just in time to get them mailed out for Christmas.
I am taking names of people interested in joining the 2011 Stamp Club, which starts late January 2011. If you are interested or would like further details please contact me.
Have a great weekend!

November Technique Class

This week we made three items that I think would be suitable for small gifts for Christmas or any other time of the year (well, maybe not the calendar, you can't really give one of those in July???). The first thing we made was this really cute box with a window, there's no stamping at all involved in this one. It was just cutting, scoring, sticking and 'Bobs your uncle,' there you have it. I did use my Big Shot to cut out the window, but you could use a craft knife or a punch instead of that.
Then we made the Easel card/desk top calendar with post it notes and a pen. Another simple project that everyone loved. The final item was a gift card holder made from an envelope. It's a bit hard to see exactly what it is like in this photo.
The girls in my Stamp Club made the box on Wednesday and have requested they make the calendar at our next get together.
This weekend I am busy getting organised for next weeks Stamp a Stack. I have all the cards designed and now my job this afternoon is to cut up all the card stock required.
Have a good weekend.
