Craft Club Christmas Party Meeting

Hi there
Last Monday was the final Craft Club meeting for 2010 so I held a Christmas party rather than our usual format. I created tent cards for everyone and a little gift box containing 3 Ferrero Rocher chocolates (I think they went down well but then who doesn't love those little choccies? )I love the Cherry Cobbler, Early Expresso and Old Olive combination in the Holiday papers and have used it a lot for my Christmas cards (well the odd few I have managed to get done this year)
Instead of my usual Card Buffet cards I decided to treat everyone to a couple of free Make and Takes. I decided to use the gorgeous Welcome Christmas stamp set and I cased a card from the lovely Jenny at Stamping Moments HERE I changed the card colours to Baja Breeze and Soft Suede and simplified it a wee bit as there were quite a few ladies sharing my one stamp set. I also added a little matching gift box for everyone to make and all who attended made a great job with theirs. For those of you who know I don't "do" glitter very often please note that there were Dazzling Diamonds in abundance that night.........what a lift this glitter brings to a project, note to myself I WILL use it more often hee hee
I soooooooooooo wish I had got this Welcome Christmas as soon as we got the new Catalogue in October instead of only purchasing it a couple of weeks ago!!!!!! I absolutely adore it and feel like I just haven't given myself enough time to thoroughly explore the potential this set has.
However next year, beginning in January I am going to be starting a monthly "Christmas Theme" class whereby I make solely Christmas items, ie cards, gifts, boxes etc. My reasoning behind this is that I will no longer be chasing my tail come December as I will already have at least 11 sets of Christmas items made before then. If anyone is interested please get in touch and I will work on some dates for each month.
So here are the pictures of my little gifts and the make and take projects, hope you like them as much as my Craft Club ladies did on Monday
