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
Glued on pieces such as Dew Drops!
I kept each months cards in a shoe box until November, all of them that had Dew Drops on.. were naked!
I had also glue on a few little embellishments and they fell off too.

Not sure if there is a better glue that will stick around till the challenge is done or not.

Default Good Question...

What should we avoid making, technique, folds, embellishments...
Glitter changes it's color after a while? I had no idea!
Funky Folds, that don't look good after sitting around?



How do you store these until Christmas?
A shoe box, something decorated
hidden and out of sun or heat

Looks like I'm a little late to be signing up (since there are seven pages of posts already!), but count me in for 10 each month! It worked out fabulously this year!

During the office redo I bought a shoe box from Dollar General with a pretty blue and white Christmas design. Larger than the traditional photo box. I've made index tabs so I can file my cards by group. I don't have a big problem with sunlight - my studio is in the basement with one small casement window.

I don't write my Christmas letter until I'm about ready to send the cards. Then it's a single page highlighting the year as a family and each of us as an individual. Of course, there are only 2 of us. LOL

Good morning ladies!

I had my day all planned out.. take hubby tot he doc (Thyroid issue) so I had NO CRAFTING on my brain. Well his doc is not available now till next Monday!

So here I sit, I cut up card stock to create 5 cards of last weeks sketch, now to decide what stamp to use! LOL A bit backwards I know! LOL

I had gotten the paper from Archiver's Buy 3 get 3 free, so I got 4 colors to do a Monochromatic card.
As I sit here looking at the pieces (originally bought for B'day cards) All I see is CHRISTMAS! LOL
4 shades of green

I was a part of CCC10 and loved the challenge. Got 160 cards made in 10 months! Please sign me up for 2011. I hope to make 14 cards each month and 5-8 tags each month. The tags will be a new challenge for me, and come in handy for gifts for coworkers.

Thanks,
Laura

I do not see why not. This is all about getting done the things YOU NEED come next Christmas, without the stress come November

As long as what you create is Christmas Themed (or Hanukkah, or whatever you need)

Hi!
I signed up either last year, or maybe it was the year before, but I failed completely! I sell my cards, and I was SCRAMBLING in October and November to get enough done for the Holiday market season! (Never did get enough done, but we had some family issues come up and I didn't get to as many markets as I wanted to anyways!)
I would like to sign up to do 14 per month. I usually make 14 of each design that I do - One for display, one for my mom, and 12 to sell. If I do one set of 14 each month between now and november, that's 11 designs. I might try and do more, but that is at least a good start!!

Thanks for keeping this challenge going, it's a good one! (even if I never have been successful at it!!)

I want in...Maybe if I am apart of this, I won't procrastinate. I think 5-7 cards will be perfect. I am retiring due to my disability this month from teaching, so I will have the time finally!

HI Monica

First challenge and very first post to SCS! I'll sign up! I'll only commit to (4) per month. That should be way more than I need! LOL

Looking forward to this challenge!

You had better count me in too.....I signed up this year and got as far as March.....and my cards are still sitting in the box!! I plan to do 10 cards each month, and whatever I don't need will be donated to Very Special Kids - a respite hospice here in Melbourne, Australia, for seriously disabled and palliative kids. They provide respite for my disabled son, so it is lovely to be able to give back

What a fabulous idea! In December I spent every available minute churning out Christmas Cards and not everyone got a made one. This year I have vowed to make Christmas cards every month to avoid the mad panic. As I have also set a scrapping goal, I think I will aim for 3 cards per month and see how I go!

March was my cut-off too LOL I tried to keep up after having full responsibility for my granddaughter for 6 months beginning in January. By by March I just decided it was too stressful. I couldn't work downstairs when she was sleeping and I couldn't work downstairs when she was awake. Not good to leave a 2 yr old to roam the house on her own hehe

This year it's all ME! Except for a couple of visits to grandma's - which I'm looking forward to already hehe

I hear you. I slid 4 or 5 store cards I had on reserve. But they were to people I knew wouldn't appreciate a handmade piece of art anyway so I didn't feel too guilty. I've added you to my list and Vikki will make it official when she gets back.

I'm going to jump in on this too. I think I'll shoot for 10 a month. This year I was caught short when I only had 60 made (forgot to count the cards for teachers, customers and the giftcard holders!) and had to scramble around to find some Christmas ones I had stashed that were left from a craft fair last year. I already have a bunch of designs favorited from this year to start off with!
