So you asked and I listened!  (smile).

You’ll have the opportunity to stamp 30 cards, complete with envelopes.  Lunch is included as well!  If you live in the Sacramento, CA area and would like to come, just leave me a comment at the end of this post and I’ll be happy to send you all the details!

Locked in my Craft Room….

I’ve been hiding out in my craft room all day today to get these cards finished and posted.  I have 8 things to post today, this completes the choices for my MEGA Christmas Card Class.  If you receive my newsletters, the registration form should be coming to your inbox very soon!

CARD 1 – Greeting Card Kids

I love this stamp set….Before today, I hadn’t really taken much time to play with it.  I think these kids are so sweet!  I will be spending more time with this stamp set in the next couple of weeks!


CARD 2 – Christmas Wishes


CARD 3 – Bells & Boughs, Poinsettia


CARD 4 – Merry Christmas Postcard


CARD 5 – Punch Pals Snowman


CARD 6 – Scenic Season/Welcome Christmas


CARD 7 – Punch Pals Pocket Card/Gift Card Holder


PROJECT 8 – Calendar

My good friend Susan Santello gave me this cute little Desk Calendar.  I’ll be offering this as one of the projects for my class.  These would be great Teacher Gifts, stocking stuffers, or send it as a Christmas card…’re friends will remember you all year long!  These will fit into an envelope prior to taping together, so it can be mailed very easily.


A Morning without coffee…..

I love this stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  It’s called “Morning Cup” I know many of you can relate to this!   I realize this isn’t a Christmas Card and I’m straying just a bit by offering it in my Christmas “MEGA” stamp Class…but what can I say, I’m sure there will be mornings leading up to Christmas when we all feel like this!


I love the colors and layout of this card.  I think you will too!


This is a simple and sweet card.  The ornament is embossed and sparkles, even though you can see it in the picture.

 CARD 11 –

I was recently challenged to show how many different ways to come up with using this one stamp.  Sometimes people are hesitant to purchase a stamp when all they can see is the one use for it.  I found this one on line somewhere….not sure where, I made a few little modifications and changes and was pleased with the outcome.

CARD 12 – A Vintage Merry CHRISTMAS

Have a beautiful Day!

Just around the corner…

I’ve already broken the “No Christmas Music until after Thanksgiving” rule…..For some reason, my family thinks the Christmas season doesn’t officially begin until after Thanksgiving.  In my opinion, 4 or 5 weeks isn’t nearly long enough to enjoy my most favorite time of year!  So I started with the Christmas music a couple of weeks ago.   Besides, you can’t make Christmas cards without Christmas Music!  Here are 4 more card designs that I’ll be offering in my Christmas Card “MEGA” Stamp Class in December.

Once again, I need to add my little disclaimer…..several of these cards have been designed by other fabulously creative people.  Like many of us….I copy really well!  🙂  However, I don’t always know who the originator of the design is….so if you see your design here without credit give to you.   Please let me know, I’ll be happy to post your name.

CARD 13 – French Foliage

CARD 14 -Snow Swirled

Pictures do not do these cards justice!  This card is beautifully embossed with Gold on Brushed Gold cardstock.  It was created by my very creative friend Janelle Planette.  Thanks for sharing Janelle!

CARD 15 – Silver Embossed Come to Bethlehem

CARD 16 – I love this card!!

I’ve seen several different variations of it, and I’m not sure where the idea originated.  There’s no stamping, only punches and die cuts.  Very fast and simple!

 Enjoy your weekend and happy stamping!
