Merry Christmas!

This is the Christmas card our family sent this year.  Do you see that the gingerbread men are on a cookie sheet?!  If you came to one of my Stamp Camps this summer or fall you have already seen this card and made it yourself!  It uses my favorite set from the Holiday Catalog - Scentsational Season and the coordinating Framelit dies.  From the information I received from Stampin' Up! -  it looks like this set will not carry over, and won't be available after January 2.  

Here is another card that the Girl Scouts made at their Holiday Card making event, using the same set:

Hershey's Tree

This is a little treat that I made for the teachers that I work with.  It is made using Hershey's Kisses and Hershey's Nuggets.  My 8th grade son agreed to take one of these to each of his core teachers.......and he NEVER lets me send in special treats for them!  So I guess he thought they were pretty cool!  If you would like to learn how to make little treats like this, you should think about coming to one of my stamp club meetings!  We usually make 2 cards and some sort of "3D" item, like this candy tree.

CONTACT ME if you would like more info about my clubs and classes.

Holiday Card Making with the Girl Scouts - part 1

Last month I organized a Holiday Card Making event for the Girl Scouts in our area.  Sixty-six girls and 30+ leaders/parents made over 200 Thanksgiving and Christmas cards which were donated to Meals on Wheels for their holiday meal trays.  Everyone had a fun time and I am sure the people receiving the cards will enjoy the special  messages the girls wrote inside each card.  This card was made with retired stamp sets.  But the layout could be copies using the Frosty Friends Stamp Set (item #128117; $11.95) on page 9 of the current Stampin' Up Holiday Catalog.  CONTACT ME if you would like to purchase any Stampin' Up! supplies.  Most items from the holiday catalog will only be available through January 2.

Don't forget about my Christmas Card Contest.  See THIS POST to get the details.  You could win a FREE STAMP SET!!!

Stop back tomorrow to see another card that the Girl Scouts made.

More Contest Cards and the Winner!

If you have been following my blog, you know that I have been having a contest each month for club members.  I give them each the same supplies and see what they can come up with for the next meeting.  This is Nancy F's card.  You probably can't tell, but she used Crystal Effects on the wings to make them shiny.  I love how she stamped the birds along the bottom of the card.  A cute card ready for any occasion!

This is the Diane's card. I love all the details in this card: sponging, tearing, punching, and stamping, of course.  Great use of color, too.

And now for this month's winner.  I think my club members want me to chose my favorite card, but that would be too hard for me to do.  

So I chose the winner using

And this month's winner is................................................


Just like last month, this is the only way I am announcing the winner.  Congratulations, Anna.  You can choose a gift from the basket at our next club meeting - just let me know that you have read this post!

Check back tomorrow for the contest I am having for the month of December.  You don't have to be a club member to enter!
