Brynn used the All Lined Up stamp set. It's really cute and she does a lovely job with her cards.
Carla used the Crab and Company set. It's so perfect for us here on the Gulf Coast. I used this set last year to make my Christmas cards.
Cecilia made these beautiful cards using the Wonderous Gift stamp set. (And borrowing So Swirled from Vanessa for one card).
Kella got retro on me and brought a stamp set from years ago. But I was able to look it up in an old catalog and design some great cards for her to make.
Sharon made these cards look like works of art. She is an artist and you can tell she's very creative. She used the stamp set A Wish For Peace.
Susan made these terrific cards with the Cardinal stamp set in the Holiday Mini catalog. Her watercolor technique put mine to shame. She's also a local artist. She did give me some tips on making my color brighter. More color, less water.
Vanessa was my most daring stamper doing lots of embossing. It paid off too. Her So Swirled Christmas cards sparkled and shined. I love them!
Thanks to everyone who came to the class and helped me get my creative juices flowing. It was a challenge to create 5 different cards for 7 different stamp sets. But I pulled it off and everyone loved the layouts.
Now I just need to design my Christmas cards for this year and get busy stamping. Check my Stampin' Up! Website for dates that I'm having open houses for Christmas cards. RSVP and let me know if you can make it to one.

I finished some scrapbooks this weekend at my friend's crop. I'm working on two scrapbooks for my girls. They'll have the same book except that I'll journal a separate letter to each girl and then I'll make some pictures a little different sizes for whoever's book it is.
I also started on a travel scrapbook kit that Creative Memories sells. It's so easy to do a scrapbook. Very similar to the Stampin' Up! Simply Scrappin. So when I get some pictures of it downloaded I'll post them here.
I'm feeling really sick but hopefully I can still do my Christmas Bazaar tomorrow. My husband wants to go hunting tonight but he's going to wait until tomorrow to see how I'm doing. God love him he's really stepped up and helped me out. I would not have been able to get the kids ready this morning at all. He made sandwiches and dressed the girls. I did get up briefly to put pigtails in the girls hair.
Well I think I will go back to bed. Nothing else too urgent right now.
Wish me luck tomorrow.
