Card-A-Thon Kits Available for Purchase

Last Saturday I hosted a Card-A-Thon event with the theme "A Year of Cards." It turned out great and everyone had a good time creating! Each attendee had 2 hours to create an unlimited amount of cards in whatever theme and quantity they wanted!

I created cards for one holiday a month using a variety of stamps and papers. I kept some of the cards pretty general, like July, making a birthday card instead of 4th of July.  Here's a closer look at each card (click on photo to see a larger version):

Most of the card ideas were based on CTMH's How-To-Books and on-line sketches but February's card was a total CASE of THIS one by Vicki W

For those that are interested I have 4 kits available for purchase! Each kit contains 12 cards, all pre-cut and pre-stamped for you! All you have to do is assemble them based on the included color photo and you're done! The cost of each kit is $15, or $20 if shipped out of state. 

If you'd like to order a set (or two) please choose one of the options below:

Northern VA Pick-Up  - $15:

Out of State Shipped - $20:

Happy Creating!

February Card-A-Thon Class

On Saturday, Feb 7 at 10 am I will be hosting another Card-A-Thon class! I love these classes and hope you'll be able to join me! This month's Card-A-Thon theme is A Year of Cards. I've designed 12 different cards for you to choose from all based on a holiday for each month of the year. I'll be sharing all the cards throughout the week but here's a sampling of what's available to choose from:

Here's how it'll have two hours to make as many cards as you can! Everything will be pre-cut and ready to make. Simply take each card box to your station and create! If you like a particular card feel free to make more of it (just be mindful of others who may want to make it as well). The only "rule" is that you must completely finish the card before moving on to the next one. The only supplies you'll need are your adhesive and VersaMat. The cost for this class is $15 or free with any $50 CTMH order!

I have a few spots open so if you'd like to RSVP here's the link: February Card-A-Thon Class

Hope to see you next Saturday!

Paper: Colonial White Cardstock, Lollydoodle B&T, Laughing Lola B&T, Frosted B&T, Heartstrings B&T
Stamps: Your Own Kind Of Wonderful (D1627)
Ink: Gypsy, Cotton Candy
