Christmas Stamp - a - stack Part 2

Hi Ladies
Yesterday I posted some of the examples of cards that Aly had designed for the ladies that attended the Christmas event that we held on Saturday. Today I am going to show you some of the examples that I designed.

Sorry that some of them are a bit blurred, but I am sure that you get the idea of some of the lovely cards that you can make with the great products from Stampin up. The new Ornament Keepsake set is one of my favourites at the moment. There are lots of different shaped ornaments to use and the Framelits which cut the shapes out are brilliant.
I am going to the Stampin' up convention next weekend which is being held in Mainz, Germany. I am really looking forward to it as it is my first convention and I haven't been to Germany before. I am sure from all accounts of previous conventions that it is going to be a great weekend. I have still have a few swaps to finish off and some roomie gifts to do but I am nearly ready.

Cards from Christmas Stamp -a -stack

Hi Ladies
Yesterday we held our Stamp - a - stack in Valley Park Community Centre. The ladies made 12 Christmas cards, covered a  tin and also made a little stand up Santa - he was so cute, and they all went away with a bag of goodies . They were kept so busy during the day that is was really very quiet as they were all busy concentrating and beavering away.
Here are a few of the cards that they made :

These are the cards that Aly had prepared for the ladies to do. Come back tomorrow when I will show you the cards that I had prepared.
Our next event on 1st December is titled " Bags, Tags and Boxes" when will be making lots of boxes for all of your Christmas gifts. If you would like to join us please email me on: margaret@margaretjones.net
