Christmas in June (and July)
I've been holding a regular Christmas Card Club each month here in my Art by Jenny Studio. Its meant to be encouraging myself and anyone who joins me to be organised (for once!) for this special time of year! So far its working. Both myself and my students have made quite a few cards already and its only June!
The most recent class was reindeer training... as it sounds - gathering reindeer together (with a reindeer punch and cardstock) then after the bases were created, sticking them down.
Then my reindeer punch rebelled and refuse to give us any more cute cardstock animals :P
Well, I'm not one for giving up so we got out the stamps and had a play!!! I'm grateful that all my students went home happy again with their creations - even though they didn't make quite what was planned :)
This next card is what I've made today after trying to fix my punch (which I've put aside for a bit... its a tad stuck now!!!). I love this stamp set... you get the sleigh, sparkles and the hohoho. So versatile! Coloured with watercolour markers and the holly stamp is coloured with the alcohol ink art markers. I just love to colour in :)
The next Christmas Card Club will be on two dates, Sat June 29 or Sat July 6, and we'll be doing a bit of colouring/blending and flower arranging with poinsettias... they're such beautiful plants!
July's class, Sat July 27, we'll be messing about in the snow (using a snowflake punch, not actually playing in the snow, although if it gets any colder we might be! lol). I'm giving away a FREE punch for each of the students in this class (Sat July 27)... only 6 per class so book without delay :)
That's it for today... while I have the Christmas bug I'm off to make ATCs - this month's Kaszazz theme is "Christmas in July" ... then I'm off to build birdhouses for the local ATC swap with friends ... Can't wait to see what everyone creates!!!
Keep on being creative everyone!
Happy Scrappy Day :D
