  • Christmas Cards....

    Oh my days!

    The intention for today - tidy up card stock etc - DONE Gives one self a pat on the back, all tidy FOR NOW!

    Then I saw an empty desk waiting to be filled with a new project ... Yep, I have started making my cristmas cards. Well.... We havent had any summer yet so may as well get started.

    Anyone else started making their christmas cards? Do you have a favourite type of card that you like to make year in year out?

    My faves are Christmas Puddings and Mince Pies. Oh and last year I made a wicked Hot chocolate one with a little help from the net.

    Right, I best go tidy up my desk again. (hehehehehe I even have a dumping drawer to throw everything in at the end of the day so the desk looks nice and tidy. )

    Chow for now xxx

    I used to make my own Christmas cards- before i discovered jewells.

    I remember being on a night shift, all the nuns were asleep (i worked in a convent) (no funny comments please)
    Anyway my card design (!) was a template Stars, snowmen bells etc placed onto card ad silver/gold sprayed onto card then lift the template off.
    Was feeling quite ill by the morning, think the sisters woundered what i'd been up to....
    Now i'm tooo lazy to bother which is terrible...

        Everyone is talking about Christmas..I can't even begin to think about Christmas cards yet! Though I know alot of my customers are as my Christmas CD is selling like mad! Last year my cards were pretty simple as I left it really late. Maybe that should tell me to get something organised earlier!!

              I've started thinking about it.
              But the trouble with me is that I need to have ideas swirling through my head for a while before I commit.....

                    I've made a few cards back in Feb, but I've not done any since. I've got some xmas stock due in, so that will prompt me to make some to promo the products. I tend to run out of steam with cards come November and end up buying a pack or two.

                          This thread promted me to locate my old mags covering previous Christmas card projects - guess what I'm doing this weekend!

                          Forgot to say, I've also dragged out my box of used christmas cards to recycle and make tags from.
