Want to know my secret? Well there isn't one, not really. I keep a list from year to year of cards I send and receive and I do continue sending cards even if I do not receive from others, why? Because I like sending them as well as receiving them. So, back to my secret...I keep all my Christmas stamps in a under the bed box along with my list and starting in July, I start planning Christmas cards for my stamp club....I pull out my box or get some new products and make a card for the club members to make. I make a few extra packets of these cards and before I put away all the supplies to make the cards, I sit down and make those extra - usually around 4. I continue this thru Oct which gives me 16 cards (I send @ 65). In Oct and November I plan a few Christmas card classes and I make 4 each of those cards, that gives me about 36 more cards. The rest of the cards I need come from inspirations from blogs I visit, Stampin' Up! demo events, the Stampin' Up! demo site, Pinterest, Splitcoast stampers and just about anywhere.
So start sooner, join my Stampin' club - it starts in June and goes to May, with no Stamp Club commitment in November or December (however, I do hold stamp club for those that want to participate those months). or attend one of My Holiday card making classes.
I didn't take pictures of the cards I sent, but I do have some pictures of cards I received from Stampin' friends.
Nancy's embossed poinsettia, simplicity, and elegant. Love all of these.
I will be posting more cards over the next few days, but probably won't get to all of them, I wish I could.
