Are you ready to stamp some cards? (The answer is always YES!) World Card Making Day is Today!
I am visiting my husbands parents today for a bit of a break during school holidays and it is a wet rainy day so I will be cracking out the card making supplies I brought with me and making some Christmas cards.
What will you be making today?
Next week Stampin’ Up! have a goal to send 50,000 cards during the first annual World Card Sending Week. I’m hoping to send out lots of cards to people. Comment below to let me know how many cards you are planning to send out.
There are some fabulous kits that Stampin’ Up! have that you can put together very quickly. These would make great cards to send out to your friends and family to brighten their day.
You can order yours by going to my online shop and then use the hostess code in the top right of this page to receive a thank you gift from me.
School has just resumed this week for term 4 and the last term of Primary school for my oldest daughter.
During the holidays though I held a couple of classes for children. The kids love my classes and I love seeing the kids being creative. In my first class the kids made 3 cards and decorated a box.
The box originally held stock for my husbands install work but I was able to cover it and be able to add it to my class. I covered it in Designer Paper and then I sealed it with some Mod Podge. The kids were then able to cut out their letters and stick them on using dimensionals. The offset the letters slightly to give a shadow effect. My youngest daughter helped each of the girls with their letters. It was great to have the extra helping hand.
I was so very happy with the result.
The cards were fairly simple and we used the Wishing You Well Stamp set from the holiday catalogue. I used Gold thread to add some extra interest to each of the cards. These card are from the catalogue so I just copied the design and had a class ready to go. The catalogues are a great source of inspiration.
I hold classes most school holidays so if you think your child would be interested and you live in Sydney Australia then contact me or like my Facebook page and I can let you know when my next classes will be on.
And if you’d like to purchase any of the products that I used in the class then click on any of the items below to be taken directly to my online shop.
During November I will be holding 3 Santa’s Workshop Card Classes using the Santa’s Workshop Suite from the Holiday Catalogue.
In the class you can make 16-20 cards using the Santa’s Workshop Memories&More Card Pack & Cards & Envelopes Pack. The Memories & More Card Packs make it so easy to make lots of cards in one sitting. The Cards & Envelopes Pack make it even easier with pre-scored cards and matching envelopes.
This is a great way to get a lot of Christmas Cards made quickly and ready for you to send out.
These cards were originally designed by Trish Todd in the US. I used her card design layouts to make my cards. The Memories & More card pack make these cards very simple and with limited stamping needed.

For my Day 5 project I made up a jar with “Reindeer Noses” inside which are Malteasers and Jaffas. Its a cute little project that anyone would love. A great gift for kids too though maybe a bit too much chocolate.
I’ve used the Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper, Green Sprigs, Mini Ornaments & Black Shimmer Ribbon and purchased the glass jar from Kmart.
I’ve listed all the products used at the bottom of this post.
