Stamp-a-Stack! Last Class of the Year!

Ladies, come join us for the last class of 2011!
This month, we'll have a special class on a special day.  On Tuesday, December 6 at 6pm we'll meet at my house for a Stamp-a-Stack class.  (If you can't make it at 6, come when you can.  This is just to give everyone a little extra time to work.)  Instead of making our usual 4 cards, you will make 4 each of the 4 following cards, so you'll be ready for Christmas!  That's a total of 16 cards!  (Be sure to bring your adhesive, scissors, and your stamina!)  Cost: Minimum $35 Stampin' Up order OR $20 for supplies.
Please RSVP to me NO LATER than Sunday Evening so I can have enough supplies ready for everyone.  If you do RSVP, it's important that you do come, because alot of supplies will be cut for you.  See you Tuesday!

This month's class will be a week later than usual.  I get to go home and see my mom!  Unfortunately for Rich, he has to work.  No fun for him...

NC SU! Demo Holiday Hop 2011

It's finally here!  Jump on board for our first ever Holiday Blog hop.  You'll find amazing projects from some spectacular North Carolina Stampin Up! Demonstrators.
I chose to use the new SU! set 25 & Counting.  This really great new set has so many different uses.  First, I decided to make a shaker card (a neat technique I learned recently from a talented fellow demo Kathy Hunt) that uses the 25 stamp in the center of the shaker.
 Here's a picture of the 25 & Counting set available in the Holiday mini only until the first week of January.  Better Hurry!

I also wanted to feature this card.  We made it at our recent demonstrator quarterly meeting.  (I apologize, I didn't write down whose idea it was.)  It uses the new Peekaboo Frames Bigz L Die from the Holiday Mini and it coordinates so well with the 25 & Counting set.  It includes 5 window cutouts that add so much to your cards and projects. 

This is a picture of an Advent Calendar designed to use both the 25 & Counting set AND the window frames die together.  Our club will be creating these beautiful frames this coming month.  Please join us!

Thank you for stopping by to visit!  To win some great blog candy prizes, please leave a comment and tell me your thoughts and ideas for this versatile new set.  Make sure to leave your email so I can reach the winner.  I will use to choose the winner from all comments left and announce the winner on Tuesday at noon!
If you're interested in any of the projects or supplies used here, please contact me and I would love to include you in our club that meets the first Thursday of every month OR I can help you place an order or get started with Stampin' Up!
