Hey everyone, want to join in on a Christmas card swap? I’m calling it the Christmas in July swap, even though its more likely to start in August, here’s how it will work:
Sign up by August 14!
Once the magic number of participants (hereafter noted as #) is determined, you will make:
# identical cards in August, due Aug 31,
# identical cards in September, due September 30,
# identical cards in October, due October 31, and finally
# identical cards in November, due November 30.
All cards will be mailed to you by December 6, unless there are stragglers! You can mail me your creations or hand them to me in person. I will likely deliver them in person (or you can pick them up from me) unless they must be mailed.
Must use mostly Stampin’ Up supplies (participants will receive 10% off their orders August – November)
Must be good quality that you would want to receive in your swaps, and in full A2 size (5-1/2 by 4-1/4 when folded)
Each month should have a different style.
Sign up by adding a comment to this post or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org! I hope to have a lot of swappers! I will email you all on August 14 to let you know how many cards to make each month for the swap!
My wedding invitations have been highly requested and unfortunately, many of the supplies that were used in the original design had been retired, so I updated the design with new ribbon and a new front flap design that is simply embossed with a Perfect Polka-dots embossing folder.
Check out the wedding invitations page for more examples and information on ordering your own invitations! These can be done in any of the current Stampin’ Up colors.
These were based on a Purple and Silver wedding theme, the ribbon comes only in white but could be dyed another color as well. Hope you all enjoy the new design!
