Humm where did that post go????
Man this has got to be the absolute worst time of year for you at work - worse than working retail! LOL And I've been there, done that. hehe Loved it!

I'll keep an eye on the house while you're gone and make sure you get everyone added when you get back. Enjoy your first Christmas as an old married lady.

Sweet Thank you Kelly! I really appreciate it!!!

I love my job it's got so much variety, but this time of year.. ppl are nuts shipping! Some say "get it there by Christmas no matter what it takes!"
Some scream at me "Are you crazy? those prices are insane, it can be late!"

Hee hee I teased Clint this was our first Christmas, he said I was wrong. Well as a married couple it is... ohhh

I would love to join this activity! Awesome idea to create Christmas cards through out the year! I will do my best to keep up with the challenges, I own my own Child care and have 3 of my own. I stay pretty busy but love to do cards. So I want to try this out, I may even have my children do some as well.
Thanks for the challenge!
I will try for 5 each month and maybe more if I am on a roll!!

Just so I get this straight, you need to post them under the ccc11?

Thanks~ Cheryl

Hi Cheryl
Yes, you do stay busy. I used to have my own child care business so I know what your day is like hehe Add Girl Scout leader in the evenings 4 nights a week and I so get your life

If you'll check the first post on here, you'll find the links to each of the monthly threads. Post your card to your gallery using KEYWORD: CCC11
Then post a link to your gallery in the corresponding month's thread.

If you ever have questions post them here... we're going to try and keep this thread 'chatty'

Have fun! and Merry Christmas

How about the 3rd or 4th Friday or Saturday??? That way if the 25th falls in the middle of the work week we aren't all scrambled?

Uff da! I am home and I think I caught it all... Kelly? how'd I do????

Clint and I went to the casino for supper, not snowing yet and it's above zero, so it wasn't bad to be out again after the drive home!


Merry Christmas ladies! Hope everyone is safe and healthy!!!

I'm in. I signed up for 2010 but didn't keep up, so I was making cards Monday and Tuesday. BUT, I finished. Next year, I want to be finished before Thanksgiving.

Dont know the ages of the kids in your child care but Operation Write Home loves to get pictures and notes from kids to give to the troops overseas! I asked my son's teacher if they would be willing to do this last year and got 30 notes to pass on. Suggestions are on their website. You can follow the link in my signature if interested.

Hello. I'm not sure about all the details but I would like to try this challenge. Can we CASE? Do we need to upload a photo of all 10 cards or just one?

You can take a pic of all the cards you made for that month, or if they are the same just take one pic. It's however you want to do it.
Some ladies do all of their cards for the month, some make them all identical
Also, you do HAVE to make 10 cards, it's all about what you need
you will have 11 months to do your cards for next Christmas.
Hope that helps!
Are you in?
Also the number you decide is not going to be written in stone, if you find you need less, fine, if you end up needing more cool!

I'm in! I think you meant to say I don't have to make 10 cards but that's my plan as I do plan to send out nearly 100.

Thank you for the feedback and I'm really looking forward to the challenge.

Good morning, everyone!

Just checking in. I've been out to and back from the after Christmas sales. I got what I went after and that was it. Of course, our WM is not a supercenter and their Christmas was limited to 1.5 isles so it wasn't hard to get in and get out. I was one of about 8 people at opening. I'm sure most everyone else drove the 40 min to the supercenter.

Did anyone else go looking for deals they could use on cards/ scrapbooking?

Count me in! I alway say I'm going to make Christmas cards though out the year, but am always scrambling in September to make Christmas cards for the church bazaar in October. When I'm done making those cards, I lose my mojo to make my own Christmas cards. I will try to make 10/month. That way I will have 6/month for the church, and 4/month for me.

You are welcome to use whatever you want. These are for your own personal use so the field is wide-open. I recommend trying to use up your stash

These cards are for you come next Christmas, you make them your way with whatever you desire.
Any style, colors, stamps or not, oh and gift Card holders count too!

Yes, please try to use what you already have!

Do not stress yourself out buying new stuff!

Kelly has a thread for keeping track of what you have and using it before buying new things! It's a cool way to really see your spending habits! (scary too)

I completely "flunked" the 2010 challenge!

So..........fresh new start, right??

I hope to do 12 cards each month, January through October. That gives me time to make up anything I miss!

Nothing like planning on shortfalls! LOL

I NEED to do 12 a month. I am not sure I will be able to keep that pace. I will TRY it. I may need to come back and adjust my goal .... I hope that is allowed?

Blessings, Lela

Good morning, Vikki
I'm hoping to fine-tune some stuff in the Studio today. And get some last-minute cards in the mail. I have 12 hanging file folders that sit on my desk in a frame for me to drop in the print-outs of the swaps by month. I need to cover those in a pretty peach fabric. I'm also making the divider cards for my CCC11 card box. Covering them in a blue metalic Christmas paper. I'll file my cards by group: SCS, MO stamp group, friends, family, quilters, etc.... and make cards to fit the group. Maybe that way I can keep better track of WHO I need cards for and stay on target better.

My GOAL by end of week: take my S2S balance to $0 so I can officially start with a clean slate and the new challenges next week.

Since, for the first time ever, I didn't get any Christmas cards out except for a couple of family members, I am going to sign up. I will plan on 7 per month as I am also doing them for a family member.

I have a very serious question that I am hoping to get answers for.....

What types of techniques DO WELL for making 12 months ahead?

For example, flat Sizzix die cuts hold well over time. DSP holds well over time. Stamped images with die ink do ok over time. Twine ribbon holds itself well over time. Tombow glue pen holds well over time.

What types of techniques SHOULD I AVOID making 12 months ahead?

For example, watercoloring fades over time. Glitter gets a different coloration to it (when using the 2way glue pen, anyway). Things with dimension could flatten maybe? Etc.

Please I would love to understand your experience with this. I tend to make elaborate cards and it would break my heart to make cards and have them be of lesser quality x months later.

Thanks for any insights

Blessings, Lela

Interesting question Lela. I've not thought about it. One thing I would suggest is the techniques you've experienced that don't really stand up to the 'test of time', save those for the last cards you make (say in Oct)... so they'll be the freshest.

Personally, I use a lot of stamped images, punches and layers. These all hold up well.
