Yes, I do that ALL the time!! I am in love with how beautiful the metal sheets look and the embossing ROCKS! I also agree that I couldn't buy a bag if kitkats and have any left to use for a project! They just wouldn't last long enough. I think my dog or husband must sneak in and eat them! LOL Like they would last long enough for that to happen! TFS!

  1. I make up cards for 10 for
    each holiday! Plus have a
    few birthdays coming up,
    so probably 30 more cards
    before the end of the year.

  2. Hmmm...that is a hard question to answer! I don't send out handmade cards to my entire list of friends & family...I mostly just include them on special gifts, etc. But, I still make a TON of holiday cards this time of year. I would say will probably make over 30 more cards before we ring in 2015. :)

    Thanks so much for the chance to win!!

  3. almost 100 by the time I make them for family, friends, for my Dad to send out and some of hubbys clients.

  4. The class sounds awesome!
    I usually make several very special cards, about 12-15. I usually put quite a bit of detail in them so I try to keep the number pretty low!

  5. I give out about 15-20 cards each year. This year is the first time in ages that I will be actually making them and I'm excited about that! My mom put an "order " in for 10 cards for her to send as well. I'd better get crack in'!

  6. My daughter and I make about 100 plus cards depending on time, We make all sentiments not just seasonal and then the aunties and grandma's get a box of cards for Christmas. Such a fun project for my daughter and I to do together. Love it.

  7. I make about 30-40 Christmas cards. Haven't started yet....ACK!!

  8. I will be making about 100 cards this year.

  9. I make at least 100 Christmas cards. Sometimes more, if I decide to make gift boxes of them. This class would be great to get some new ideas, especially if CAS-ual Fridays Stamps are featured. You know I them!

  10. I love to win a place in this class. Thank you for the chance to win. I make somewhere around 30 cards I send out to family and friends but I would make another 50 or greater for charity.

  11. I make over 150 because I send cards for the troops to use. From Arlene D

  12. Planning to make 30+ Christmas cards! For family, friends and my lovely "virtual" paper crafting and stamping friends on the web :)

  13. I am planning on 50-75 cards this year.

  14. I did a count of them just last night and I've made about 65 so far. I think I might be done with what I need but I know I'll still make more - they're too fun to make to stop now!

  15. I usually make 20-25 for friends and family and I also make a bunch for card drives (though I don't know how many that will be).

  16. I make about 30 Christmas cards each year. Thanks for the class chance.

  17. I do a craft show and sale in November so I have made 97 Christmas cards so far and will do a few more. I send out about 30 myself so will have to do those later if I sell all my inventory at the sale.

  18. We send out 75+ Homemade Christmas Cards each year. Along with another 12+ Hannukah Cards and/or Tag Sets. I also make a ton of Gift Tags and Gift Bags. I work on replenishing my two Christmas Shoe Boxes each month. I usually sit down and make 6 Cards of the same design and then move on to the next 6 cards. I Love keeping in touch with our Family and Friends by using my learned, and practiced, paper making skills. Right now I am finishing up our 150 Trick or Treat Bags. The smiles, and the hugs, that you get when you hand someone a Treat Bag makes me happy all day! It is amazing that just a little creative work can illicit such giggles and appreciation. Go make something creative and give it to someone who freely helped you today!

  19. I make about 50 and am about 2/3 of the way there. Sure would love to win this class!

  20. I have 40 on my list to send cards to, and then I make cards to give as gifts. Would love to win this class!

  21. I hope to make 10 at least as I promised some friends for some handmade Christmas cards! Crossing fingers for both the card making and giveaway! :P

  22. About 100 and give any left overs to a local nursing home.

  23. I plan on making cards for friends, family, & nursing home folks. It will probably end up being close to 100 cards.

  24. I am planning to make 50 holiday cards this year. I've never taken an online class before and this one looks like lots of fun! Thanks for the chance to win!

  25. Oh my gosh! I am so excited!! Thank you! Email sent! I have all of my cards done and in stamped envelopes ready to mail but I just volunteered to do a card drive so I am making at least another 140 Christmas cards. I a going to be busy as a beaver! TFS!

  26. Congratulations, Barbara!!!!! I started on my Christmas cards yesterday. I plan to make 60 cards. I have been so busy following new blogs like this one, that I kind of started to get confused. Once I finally nailed down my design.....I have got them started and am having a lot of fun. I love the interaction through these new blogs....I am a beginner and just really learning how to post and need to figure out how to share my cards with you all next :) Thanks for your contest!!!!!

  27. I will make about 30 cards. Some are more elaborate than others. Depends on whether I think they will be appreciated or thrown in the trash as soon as they are read (I know my friends).
    I don't have anything planned yet. It's usually down to the wire and then I make up the design. I work best under pressure.

  28. I hope to make about 60 cards. Still a long way to go! I love it though! xxx

  29. I have to make about 50-60 cards for friends and neighbours. Since Christmas us not our main festival....this class will be a great help.

  30. I make 65 cards for my friends and family. I make up one design that I can mass produce, it's my favorite thing to do all year!


I love hearing from you!!
