Upcoming Christmas Card Workshops
Last week, my sweet husband gave me a few evenings sans children to fully get into a "creative zone", and do some serious design work. At first I found the new CTMH paper packets challenging to work with. But then the ideas started rolling, and I was able to come up with these great cards. I'm extremely pleased with how they turned out, and I hope my customers will be as well. To see a closer view of the cards, click on the photo.
Since adding a second child to our family, my papercrafting motto has become more and more in line with CTMH's - "faster, simpler, and easier". People want the homemade look, but don't want to spend hours and hours on super detailed cards. So, I've replaced my typical 25 cards/5 each of 5 designs workshop with a 24 cards/8 each of 3 designs workshop. Also, the embellishing is minimal (but elegant), and the stamping, while prevalent, is not challenging.
I hope that if you are in the greater Seattle area, you will consider attending one of my Christmas Card workshops (dates TBA soon), or even consider having a private Christmas Card workshop with a group of your friends! Private workshops are great because you can chat and share snacks while working, but also I'll be rewarding the group "organizer" with the hostess rewards for the workshop supply costs! That is a minimum of $25 in free goodies - possibly more! Email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like more information on a private workshop, or to RSVP for one of my regular Christmas Card workshops.
If you are not in the Seattle area, consider purchasing a set of 24 pre-made cards! The cost is just $30 plus shipping, and you'll get that great hand-crafted look without the time/energy of making them yourself. (email@example.com)
