Final Two Days To Register!

ONLY TWO DAYS to register for my September  Countdown To Christmas Class.  If you can't make it, be sure to try a Class-To-Go Kit

THANK YOU so much for the tremendous response I've received on my Class-To-Go Kits!  I have several stampers purchasing them with a friend or two, planning their own holiday cardmaking days!  Awesome! 

I've even had some of my demonstrator friends order the Class-To-Go
Kit as a ready-to-go workshop for their stamping friends!  What a great
idea—all the work is done for you!

Hi Stamping Friends!

Here's one thing you need to know about me—I have a hard time keeping a secret!  I'm the type of girl who wants to unwrap her presents on Christmas Eve (or earlier)!  So, keeping my Countdown To Christmas projects under wraps for three weeks has been a REALLY big accomplishment for me!

I can hardly wait to show the cards we'll be making!  Since I know some of you would feel much more comfortable ordering a class if you could see the projects you're making, I thought I'd unveil one of the September Countdown To Christmas card designs today.  That's a good justification, right?! 

OK—here are two cool versions of the first class card design…

Our first class features the Christmas Messages stamp set, along with the Season of Style Washi Tape and a half pack of 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack.  You'll get all of those items, along with supplies to make 12 cards (6 each of this card style, 6 each of another card design).

Several people have asked, so I want to clarify…if you get the Class-To-Go Kit, you won't need any additional tools to complete the cards.  Your card supplies will be pre-cut and pre-punched—just add ink and adhesive!

I love the way this card features the beautiful designs of the Season of Style Washi Tapes.  The pretty Baked Brown Sugar Ruffled Stretch Trim provides some lovely texture against the smooth tapes.

Check out the size of the Chevron Border Punch…it's much larger than I anticipated when I ordered it, but I like it!  I used some of the Season of Style DSP behind it for a unique accent.

Of course the Christmas Messages focal point is what makes this card fabulous!  Have you noticed the trend in using words as the central image of cards?  I used Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Markers to color the rubber before stamping.  It's easy to highlight beautiful phrases like these with the Chalk Talk Framelit die-cuts and a couple of Rhinestone Jewels.

I designed these Countdown To Christmas cards so that the elements were easy to move around for different looks.  You could make three of the cards horizontal and three vertical, like my examples here.  Or, change them up on your own with different greetings or by adhering the washi tape and ribbon in a different way!  No need to make all your cards the same!
