The First December Make & Take Event

The first Make & Take was a huge success!  We had a wonderful time and made 12 beautiful cards (3 cards from 4 designs seen below). Two crafters won a gift card to spend in the Stampin' Up! Catalog plus free shipping.
I am planning classes and Make & Takes in Januaray so please join in the fun! Check on my website for event dates.

Contact me if you would like to have a party of your own. Invite your friends over for a great afternoon or evening of crafting and they will leave with hand-made cards to give away. How fun!

These are the 4 styles we made. I think the Santa card was the favorite followed by the snowflake. My guest were surprised at how easy it was to make cards that LOOK so difficult to make.

The kitchen was set up with 3 Big Shot stations for embossing and die-cutting. We had card examples and stamp sets displayed on the island.

I really did have people at my party...I swear! This is before the guests arrived! :)

A hot chocolate bar with crushed candy cane, sprinkles, and of course whipped cream. Christmas music was playing on the radio and we had optional glasses of wine for those who were nervous about making their own cards. ;)
