Christmas Card Marathon

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.

October Stamp of the Month, Yuletide Joy

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 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.
