I thought I would share what we did at my 4th Annual Christmas Stamp-A-Stack event that I hold the first weekend in October. Everyone made 4 cards of 5 different designs for a total of 20 cards. One of the sets I used was White Christmas, and since that is a set with so many possibilities, I thought I would make my sample card four different ways to give everyone an idea of how they could use it. I thought I would just take a moment though and share with you my display board that I came up with. I took the backing board that our glitter paper comes in, which is very sturdy, and adhered the back of a 5×7 picture frame to it to give me an easel display board that held 4 cards beautifully. Here is what it looked like from the back:
I adhered a piece of designer paper to the front with a little bit of adhesive and then attached my cards to it:
Here are the other cards that they did – this one is from Nikki Spencer using the Festival of Trees that I loved with so many details:
The next card was using the set Beauty of the Season:
This was using Wondrous Wreath:
And then using inspiration from Marelle Taylor, I used the Ornamental Pines and made 4 different samples using my “homemade” display board:
Lastly, everyone was able to make as many tags as they wanted using the set Get Your Santa On:
This event is a potluck, so everyone brought a dish to pass, and I had Christmas music playing off my iPad from Pandora, so it was a very nice assortment of music.
Here is what it looked like BEFORE everyone got here. I had 5 separate stations set up all throughout my house with seating for between 4 and 6 people at each spot:
Everyone had a fantastic time and I also had a door prize for everyone who attended. I’ll leave you with a few pics of this fun day!
I just love these wonderful ladies who so enrich my life and who come and play with me every month!
