Long but productive day!

Whew, it has been a long but very productive day. Annie and I completed all 5 Christmas layouts for the Holiday Album in a day class. I am so excited and proud of how they turned out. I can't show you the complete pages, you'll have to attend class for that, but I thought I'd share some bits and pieces to tease you. :)

A Cute Christmas

I didn't really pay much attention to the A Cute Christmas stamp set when I first looked through the holiday mini, but there are just so many cute elements in the set that it won me over. This is yet another quick, easy card. Seeing a theme here? I should have stamped the Season's Greetings a little lower, oh well. Don't you just love the tensel trim? Makes me remember crafting when I was a kid.

Stamps: A Cute Christmas (w# 120825, C#121133) , Four the Holidays (#116921)

Accessories: Silver Tensel, Scallop edge border punch, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle punch, 1 3/4" Circle punch.

Ok I have to get busy on my Christmas cards.... They should have already been in the mail!

The Girls meet Santa and Christmas class pictures

So my girls are 5 and 3 and they have not ever sat in Santa's lap. I know some of you will think that is horrible of me, but I ask them every year and they just look terrified so we don't make them. Well this year I thought it was about time to have a picture with Santa so I told them that they had to tell Santa what they would like for Christmas. They agreed and I am so glad! Katie was ready, Piper looked scared but I didn't give her a choice I just said "Hop in Santa's lap".

They both did great, and I finally have pictures of them with Santa. I think they turned out pretty cute.

They are having a little chat with Santa, I just love it!!

The next group of pictures are from Terrie's Christmas Card Class. What an awesome Girls Night Out!

These girls were seriously working on a card. From left to right: Laura (Miss I'm not crafty, but finished before everyone else and my cards look fabulous! She ended up taking advantage of the starter kit special too. Welcome to my group Laura!), Mary Alice, and Gilda.

Alicia, Hollie, and Terrie. Aren't they just so cute? I love them!

Stephanie, Annie (My awesome downline helping everyone!) Pam (she wanted to charge me $87.50 to post her picture, clever girl that's what the started kit cost last month! I didn't pay, but she signed up anyway) Nikki, and Brie. They were all hard at work and didn't have time to look at the camera.

I had a great evening stamping with these girls. They are so much fun. The whole house was full of chatter, laughing, and Christmas Music! Thank you Terrie for Hosting such a fabulous night!
Here is one of the cards that everyone made. The Santa is from the Jolly Old Saint Nick (wood#121711 clear#121321) stamp set in the mini catalog. There is a To: From: stamp in the set that that would be perfect to stamp in Santa's beard for Christmas tags. This set is only available until January 3, 2011 so if it's on your list you may want to act fast.
Thanks for listening to me ramble, Happy Stamping!

Medallion Christmas card

Wow, it's been a long time since my last post. I'm not sure where October or November went. I've been pretty busy with classes, workshops, and family the last couple months. I'll try to make it up to you. I've taken lots of pictures this morning and have plans to share them over the next week, so make sure you visit again. Ok so for the real reason you are here.... you want to see a project right? This is one of the cards we did at Mary Alice's Christmas Card Class Yesterday. Thanks Mary Alice! I think everyone had a great time!!

What do you think? It was quick and easy. We stamped the Medallion Background (#115223) on Baja Breeze cardstock with Whisper White Craft Ink (#101731). The Merry Christmas is from the All Holiday Stamp set (#114916) and is stamped in Night of Navy Classic ink. We also added a Clear Rhinestone Brad (#113144) for a little bling.
This is one of the cards we will be doing at my Christmas Card Class on Tuesday, December 7. If you are interested and need more details let me know. RSVP's are due Monday.
