Felt Accents Christmas Card Kit

December is an amazing month filled with all kinds of festive activities and I hope creating some extra special Christmas cards is on the top of that list. Don't have time to design these extra special cards? Well, I've done all that work for you! All you have to do is find a few extra minutes to put them together. I've created a wonderful card kit for you, complete with directions and pictures to complete as many sets as you would like. The kit includes all the pre-cut cardstock and designer series paper, plus glitter paper, felt accents, rhinestones and even the 8 piece stamp set Many Merry Messages to complete each card. I will even dry emboss and stamp the wood grain for you. It couldn't get any easier!

~ All this, a complete set for only $45.00 (The stamp set alone costs $34.95!)

Want more cards or want to provide your own stamp set?

~ Individual sets of four cards only $10.00 (purchase as many sets as you would like!)

(You will need to provide your own adhesive and ink for either option)

I've decided not to have a stamp camp in December, but that doesn't mean you can't have your stamp camp at home. Here's an idea is you could get a group of your friends together for a fun night of stamping, each of them could either purchase a complete set (with stamp set) or you could all share a stamp set and each just buy the cards.

Call me today! Deadline/payment due by November 18th. Card kits will be delivered by the end of November (or sooner if requested) leaving you plenty of time to complete them for your holiday giving.

October Stamp Camp

Wow, where does the time go!  I've had good intentions to get these photos posted long before now, but it just seems like there isn't enough time in a day to get it all done.  I was really torn this month on which projects to create for you to stamp.....should I do Fall or about a couple of each! We will be making a sweet fall card with matching "coffee cup" out of the new Spice Cake designer series paper, a "stocking" gift card using the new Stocking die, a stocking covered card using the new Builder Stocking punch/Stitched Stockings stamp set and the super sweet mini jingle bells and lastly an amazing little box made using the Milk Carton die. 

An email was sent out last week and in the first 2 hours the Friday October 28th night class was FULL!  So, I opened up an additional class on Friday morning the 28th from 10:00-2:00.  If you would like to attend camp, please let me know.  I almost always have a cancellation or two and would be happy to have you come!  Cost is $15.00 or FREE with a $35.00 order.  Sign up dead line has been extended to Monday October 24th.

And now for the project pictures!
