Christmas stamp-a-stack 2016

This years Stamp-a-stack was as popular as ever, with all ladies making 12 cards, 2 of each 6 designs as shown below. 

I ran 3 classes over a long weekend at the start of November on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All classes completed the task in less than 4 hours, which gave us time for refreshments and homemade cake and cookies. Paul even tried to put some christmas music on, but that didnt work, as the ladies thought it was a distraction and too early...Well Ive just realised its now 3 weeks to the big day!

Cookie Cutter Christmas Workshop

One of the first sets I purchased when the Autumn/winter catalogue was released was the cute cookie cutter bundle, co-ordinating candy cane lane designer series paper. washi tape and bakers twine. 

I looked on Pinterest and made various samples using all these stamps, punches and papers. When I had them on display in the classes I received lots of praise with many wanting to do a workshop so I arranged a couple of 3 hour classes on two separate Saturdays way back in October making 10 cards in total.

Here are some of the cards we made
