Christmas in July !

For the last 2 years I have run Christmas card classes at home - 2 sessions twice a month making 2 cards a session.  This year I decided to have 3 card making days making more cards so we are even more ahead for the Christmas season.
On Friday the 2nd of my days is happening - in this heatwave !
We play a stamp a stack game working in pairs each person makes 2 cards of that design - that way there is no waiting for supplies just heads down and craft - its a very quiet workshop !!
In the afternoon we will be making a gift but I will save that for another day.

 This is one of my Fav SU stamp sets - usually I use it with browns and a distressed look but I love the fresh look of it with this pinky red embossing powder.
 Oh I waited 3 years to get this reindeer die buying it second hand - I love how it works so well with co-ordinations cardstock.
 Another lovely stamp set by SU this santa is adorable - this is introducing the ladies to using distress ink and how fabulously easy it is to get that sepia look.
 Punch magic - need say no more !
 This is delightfully simple but I love how the fresh and claen papers work so well together
and a bit of clever embossing teamed with punches - SU have a fab range of EF !

So thats what I have been doing today! My posts are still hit and miss due to scrapbooking every spare minute for my SILs birthday scrapbook which I cannot share as yet - only 22 pages to go !
Hope you are managing to stay cool in this heat .
