It's that time again. I have been busy creating my Christmas cards this year and I yet again set myself a challenge.
Last year I made 25 cards using 6 sheets of 12x12 design series paper however this year I made 40...yes 40 cards in lots of various sizes.
I shared this on the demonstrator planing facebook page and I have had so many questions which I plan to answer.
What what the purpose of this challenge, I hear you say!
So...I am a hobby demo, which means I don't actually have any time to sell Stampin'Up products. I have a couple of customers and I don't promote to sell the products. I would love to sell and hold classes BUT in reality I work full time and joined Stampin'Up purely for the discount (which is amazing by the way)
I have to spend £100 a month which to me isn't a lot because if I don't spend it with Stampin'Up - I'll be spending it at Hobbycraft, Amazon, The Range or Crafts a pound.
My purpose of this challenge was to show my family & friends that you don't have to purchase lots of product or buy lots of things to make lots of cards. If I used the whole pack of DSP then I would have created 80 cards in total by just purchasing:
- Snowman Season Stamp Set
- Let it Snow Designer Series Paper
- Let it Snow Embellishment Kit
- Black Memento Ink
- Whisper White Card
All totals to: £46.25 (bargain)
Perfect to sell at craft fairs as you can make lots of card using the suite. I am more than happy for you to share but please do tag or mention my name.
I had lots of scrap pieces and decided to use my circle punch to create simple triangle tree shape cards and spruced them up using gems and buttons that I had in my craft room.
I absolutely love these and I cannot wait to upload them to my Etsy store. I am selling all my designs. Please feel to share and tag as you go along.
Thanks so much and Happy Crafting!
