What a LOVELY day we had, as we had our ANNUAL Christmas Cardmaking Day in Lancaster Co this past Saturday!
My team & I make this a “Customer Appreciation” day, and enjoy treating our customers (really, friends ) extra special this day!!
Everyone received a goodie bag when they arrived….and then headed over to this table to create a TAG for their bag. These stamped images came from the October Stamp of the Month stamp set – Twinkle.
Next, they took the rest of their Artistry Cricut cut pieces (see photo below) and stamped some of the images, pieced the other Cricut pieces together to create some GREAT embellishments to use in future crafting!
Check out the ADORABLE 3x3 card they made with our NEW diffusers that go along with our Embossing folders!!!!
These NEW GOODIES arrived the week of card day, so I quickly figured out a way to incorporate them into the Christmas Cardmaking Day’s creations. I’m so glad I did – diffusers were new to MANY of our attendees that day!!
There was plenty to see & ooh & ahh over, as they roamed around the room. We even had some Christmas music playing (until our CD player quit working )
Of course, there was some scrumptious breakfast goodies, drinks, and candy for anyone to snack on too!!
Then it was time to create!!! We divided up into 5 different groups, and stayed as a group the entire day.
There were 6 different stations in the morning, and 6 in the afternoon….meaning there was an “extra” table to head to when you had a few extra moments.
I’ll show you a QUICK peek of the projects we created in the morning…
We had our “traditional” lunch of homemade taco soup with all the fixings…and of course LOTS of other goodies too The Pumpkin Torte made by Sheri, is ALWAYS a HUGE hit too!!!
Then we went back to our CRAFTING and enjoyed the rest of our afternoon creating this set of goodies!!
Each “class” throughout the day lasted 25 minutes, and we were finished our day by 3:15pm. We appreciate EACH person that joined us for this day and know that it is something everyone looks forward to each year!!
The past two Christmas card days (we’ve had 7 of them!) we also have a table set up in honor of Operation Smile. We as consultants, donate handmade cards and ask the attendees to feel free to donate what they can and 100% of the proceeds go directly to the kids!!
This year we raised $74.50, just through our handmade cards!!
We also had the current Operation Smile stamp set there, so everyone could see how ADORABLE it was!! I know I’ve already received an order for that stamp set! So thankful CTMH is donating $7 to O.S. for EACH of these stamp sets that are purchased!! Wahoo!!!
(click on the picture of the stamp set below to get this ADORABLE stamp set, and $7 will go DIRECTLY to the kids at Operation Smile!)
If you like what you see, we’d LOVE to have your join us at NEXT YEAR’s Christmas Cardmaking Day event!!
We had a new location this year, which would hold a lot more people …so spread the word, bring your friends & mark the down Saturday, Sept 24, 2016 and plan to join us then!!
