When I think of the holidays, I always think of crafting and creativity. Between decorations, cards, and gifts, it’s just a glittery time of year! I try to get my holiday class in front of you all long before Christmas to give you time to be inspired too and get anything you need to make your holiday crafting a success!
HOLIDAY STAMP CAMP:
At the Holiday Stamp Camp, you will be making the following: 5 Christmas Cards (3 will be quick cards), coordinating tags to each card, a gift box perfect for gift giving, a gift card holder, an exploding winter scrapbook box, a clothespin for holiday hostess gifts, and one more I haven’t designed! Most of the projects utilize products from the Seasonal Mini catalog so you get to work with a lot of product!
Class options are:
• Session 1: Friday, October 4th, 10am-1pm
• Session 2: Friday, October 4th, 6pm-9pm
• Session 3: Saturday, October 5th, 10am-1pm
• Session 4: Wednesday, October 30th, 10am-1pm
I’m really happy with the projects and think you will love the value you get for only $20 for my main Holiday Stamp Camp. I showed some of the projects off this weekend at my camp and was thrilled to see the positive response from everyone on them. I think there is something for everyone in this camp and lots of ideas you can take into other holidays or meet other crafting needs in other seasons!
RSVP by September 25th so I can get the supplies ordered and prepped in time. Make sure you indicate which session you would like to participate in! I have 8 slots per class session. Cost is $20.
HOLIDAY STAMP A STACK:
For those that are only looking for cards, I am also offering a Stamp-a-Stack option this year. I will forward a flyer with the options once I get my order in the mail with the final stamp set I’m using! If you do the Stamp-a-Stack, you will need to arrange a time in October to come over and stamp the cards. If you are doing the Holiday camp as well, you can stamp them after the class you attend. For stamp-a-stacks, I cut all the pieces for your card kits, you stamp all the images, and assemble 1 card here. Then you take the rest home and assemble them using the first card as the sample. RSVP with the card(s) you want to create and the amount by 9/25/2012 once you see the flyer.
HOLIDAY SCRAPBOOK CAMP:
There is a great divided 8 x 8 scrapbook in the catalog that I’m putting together a really fun class! The class kit includes the album, page protectors, insert cards, ribbons and embellishments, and digitally designed accents from My Digital Studio. This camp is on Saturday, November 2nd, from 11am-2pm. The cost is $35 and we will walk through the album page by page so that you leave with a complete album just needing photos!
HOLIDAY MY DIGITAL STUDIO (MDS) CLASS:
The first Monday of each month will bring an MDS class, free in most cases, to help you master the art of digital scrapbooking and card making! This month’s class was all about calendars and I can set up 1:1 classes with anyone that is interested in learning how to make adorable calendars for your family for the holidays. My next class will be Monday, October 7th. One session will be from 3-4 and the other from 5:30-6:30. We will be learning how to use MDS to make your family Christmas cards and holiday newsletters. I have done this for the last few years and it has cut down on my holiday stress immensely. I still make traditional homemade cards as well but this is a great way to get a professional family photo out to family and friends at a very reasonable price! RSVP by the day of the class if you are interested in joining us. Having the Basics 1:1 class is helpful for this class but not required!
If you have friends that would enjoy some of the projects listed for the Holiday camp but not all, consider being a hostess for a holiday event. We can determine the price of the camp based on what you want to make or do a free workshop where we show the products and the guests make a free card to take home. Camps can be tailored to the audience attending and their experience levels! Hostesses are eligible to attend my free hostess appreciation event on November 9th which is going to be a great event!
HOLIDAY THIS AND THAT JOURNAL:
If you need help staying organized this holiday season, check out the Season of Joy This and That Journal. It is AMAZING and has calendars, lists for cards sent and received, gift lists, receipt holders, and anything else you need to keep yourself on track and low stress over the holidays!

HOLIDAY GIFT CERTIFICATES:
I offer gift cards for Stampin’ Up! merchandise for the holidays. Any gift card comes with a homemade gift card holder. These are only redeemable through me and are a great gift for the crafters in your life since we have a new mini catalog that comes out at the beginning of the year with great new Spring and Summer content!
Have a craftastic day,
