I've got two rounds of my Christmas Card Marathon Workshop coming up next week--one on Tuesday, Oct. 25th, and a second on Thursday, Oct. 27th. For card marathons, we make 20 cards in one night. . .four each of five different designs. These are the designs I've picked out for this round. Cost for the class is a $25 minimum order. If you're interested in this workshop but can't make it on either of these dates, let me know. I may consider repeating this class again in November.

If you're starting to feel the itch to make some beautiful Christmas cards or other projects, take a look at our October Stamp of the Month, Yuletide Joy. Check out these cool intricate designs! You can stamp them in a solid color, emboss them, or stamp them in black and color in the design with markers or pencils. I decided to go all out in red and gold for these cards, and I hope you enjoy the ideas. I combined gold embossing with our Gold Shimmer Trim and Cranberry red cardstock. I even snuck in some of that beautiful gold-dotted vellum paper from the Rustic paper pack.
If you'd like to get your hands on this stamp set, visit my website at http://christina.ctmh.com to order. As always, you can get it for only $5 with a $50 purchase or buy it at the regular retail price of $17.95.

Swan Lake is a fun paper pack with colors that will work wonderfully with a variety of photos. There are hints of autumn in the paper pack, but I find that it's a great year-round collection.

If you purchase the items for this project from me (in person or through my website), I will e-mail you the cutting files for these layouts.
