What's next?
 
Now that Christmas is here what cards are you going to start working on?

RubberLady603 12-25-2012 02:33 AM

LOL! I swear I'm going to get going on next years cards!

Scrapjanny 12-25-2012 03:49 AM

Well, there are a few people who sent me Christmas cards that I didn't have on my list to send a card to; so I will be making a few Happy New Year cards. :rolleyes: We also have some birthdays coming up in January, including our daughter's, so I'll be making birthday cards too.

PedalPower 12-25-2012 04:25 AM

I'm going to focus on participating in challenges!

Kathlyn47 12-25-2012 06:58 AM

Valentine's Day cards are my focus now. All ready have the designs in my head. I just ordered a cute stamp set from Simon Says, bought a new Valentine's folder design by Cuttlebug at Mike's with a coupon, and have a bid on a retired SU Valentine's stamp set on eBay I've always loved. Tomorrow I'm re-ordering Real Red ink and paper from my SU demo. Got plenty of red and white glitter leftover from Christmas and I'll be using my Spellbinders Hearts Nestabilities. So I'm set to go once all the decorations are stored and the house is clean and looks normal again.

**JILL** 12-25-2012 07:54 AM

I'm going to get started on my Valentine's cards. I'm also going to make some "way to go", "great job", "You did it!" cards for people celebrating milestones at work. That should keep me busy for awhile. :-)

binkiemonstermom 12-25-2012 08:00 AM

I am planning my January card class with new spring items from the Stampin' Up catty. And then I am working on LOVE day crafts!!! :)

basketballmom 12-25-2012 08:27 AM

I'm on the SU! Creative Crew here on SCS ... so I need to make some projects for that! (you'll see them in January!) :)
And SU! Leadership is coming ... so there are swaps to plan and make before I leave on Jan 9.

So ... mostly spring cards. Some Valentines ideas.

Oddesigns 12-25-2012 09:34 AM

I'm not! I have been beading snowflake ornaments and need to clean that up and get back to cards.

I need to make my 2013 birthday calendar first, then do all January birthday cards now so I can start to get a little ahead.

Cartermrc 12-25-2012 10:11 AM

Valentine cards, I'm getting some of the new SU Spring catalog items for those. Then Easter, etc. I also need to make up some sympathy cards to have on hand. I'm a few ahead for next Christmas too! I want to give more out to newer friends next year.

After Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, it's nice to take a breath again and let my creativity build up a bit.

Cook22 12-25-2012 10:39 AM

Special January birthdays, a couple of New Year's. A couple of sympathy cards so I have them on hand when I need them, instead of having to stamp one in a rush...
And since I do the ongoing Christmas card challenge (CCC13 for next year) some Christmas cards.
And some thank you cards, of course!!

SophieLaFontaine 12-25-2012 11:16 AM

I'm working on some recipe-card-holding (cardstock) aprons - like a card, only in apron form. A co-worker wants me to make seven of them by January 10th, for her Tastefully Simple consultants. :)

Kate Stamps 12-25-2012 01:57 PM

I have so many Christmas pictures that I want to get into my scrapbooks and I already have a few pages made, so I need to get the pics on the pages. Then I'm on to making birthday cards for all my friends in my stamp club. I'm hoping that if I get them made in Jan. that I won't be concerned with it the rest of the year.... I'll just have to remember to actually mail them.

arlenevita 12-25-2012 02:07 PM

The last few days while visiting the nephews, I've been making Valentines so I don't get the Feb. 1 frantic text from SIL asking for them like last year (even though I had asked right after Christmas) I had to quickly put together kits so the two boys could make fifty Valentines and mail them from NY to NC.

purplewinkle 12-25-2012 03:11 PM

Well, we're a little late sending out our Christmas cards, so I'm going to squeak out a few more, I had an inspiration, so I was playing a little today. Hopefully we'll get our cards out by Friday, and that's okay with us.

cr8iveme 12-25-2012 04:10 PM

Well I'm hoping to teach a stamp-a-stack class in January. Hoping that the person who owns the meetup group I belong to will post my class for me.

hoping some of the sisters in my ward will be interested in attending.

So hopefully I hear back soon about the meetup group. Then I've got to place my CTMH order and plan out the class.

Also participating in the Christmas card challenge 2013 (CCC13) and All occasion card challenge 2013 (AOCC13)

Tinalala 12-25-2012 04:22 PM

I need to make some Birthday cards and I want to work on some Valentines. I got the SU Color Coach for Christmas so I want to mix and match some unique colors this year! Plus I have a goal to use my Cricut with my SU!

cardmaker2 12-25-2012 05:35 PM

Well, once I get the makeshift bed out of my workspace, (Christmas company) I need to turn my attention to the bookkeeping files for 2012. Get them tidied up ready to move along. Once that is done, I hope to wander to my desk and look at the new ideas people are coming up with and perhaps gain some inspiration... at this point it doesn't matter what! I just need to get back to something.

stampindoe 12-25-2012 09:41 PM

I am also in the CCC13 Christmas Card Challenge, so I need to start my January cards.
Also need to make a few thank you card for Christmas gifts.
Then on to Valentine's cards.
Happy New Year to all!

lylacfey 12-26-2012 12:24 AM

Valentine's Day gifts. I am excited about it. Valentine's Day is more exciting to me than Christmas. I really love the holiday. I think it's because I love hearts and pink. I can be all girly girl.

Makalah 12-26-2012 09:21 AM

Thank you cards are next, for the Christmas gifts we received. Then demo swaps in January using new Sale-a-Bration and spring catalog toys. :)

QueenOfInkland 12-26-2012 09:50 AM

Working on 'thank you' cards for both a swap and for my personal use. Also working on ATC swaps using new techniques for me: triple stamping and monoprinting on a gelatin plate. I'm finding it hard to stop once I get started on this monoprinting - it's like fingerpainting with a brayer and I want to print everything in sight LOL

XcessStamps 12-26-2012 09:53 AM

Baby shower favors a friend ordered for her daughter's shower and of course birthday and anniversary cards and others as needed.

jkaymac 12-26-2012 11:13 AM

I'm almost done with New Year's cards, then I'll move on to Valentines. I like to be about a month ahead. And I do like to make Christmas cards year round. And I've got to get ahead on birthday and sympathy cards. And I need to purge and reorganize again.

Oddesigns 12-26-2012 02:41 PM

I got an order for a set of 10 cards, due Friday. I have 7 done but need to make 3. Am I working on them? No! LOL.

maslex 12-27-2012 01:14 AM

As far as cards go, I only make Christmas cards. So I'm either going to make a few more, here & there or get back into my scrapbooking. Haven't touched that in a while.

CAKath 12-27-2012 05:29 PM

I'm thinking of making some Christmas cards for next year. I made a variety this year which was very fun. I could easily make more of the same to get a head start on next year.
After that I'm planning some monthly event w my fellow hobby demos. We outgrew monthly clubs but we miss being together. We usually do a shoebox swap and I provide refreshments and the location. We just didn't do enough of them so I'd like to get that going again.

sprtchick 12-27-2012 06:18 PM

I make Christmas all year long. I have to have so many. working on Valentines and Easter now. Never have enough Birthday and Thank yous.
Happy New Year ladies!

Need a project? Check out the Operation Write Home link below. Our service men and women appreciate cards for writing home so very much.

jennik 12-28-2012 08:57 PM

Trying to finish up some more Christmas cards, and then on to Valentine's Day!! I tried to make a few Christmas cards throughout the year. My goal is one set of Christmas cards a month (usually about 6 of the same design).

Would love to see a picture or template of this if you are willing to share! ;)

I'm need to work on getting a "stash" of cards built up....sold almost out of everything during my 3 craft shows....but first I think I need to get off the computer and split coast! LOL :D

cynthiav 12-29-2012 07:13 AM

Well first I have to unpack and organize my craft room. I finally moved to a home with a bedroom just for crafting. But so far it has all remained packed. It is killing me. My daughter and I are both off work till Jan. 5th. So unpacking and organization starts today.

Then let the fun begin ... Starting with Valentines , then party invites for my nieces 7th birthday. So very excited!!

I've never heard of this. Thanks so much for sharing. This is something I most definitely will make a priority with my card making this year.

skeeter93 12-30-2012 12:07 AM

Putting all this Christmas' photos into layouts - I'm determined to fill an album before I go back to work, otherwise the photos will sit neglected just like the last few years Christmas photos.

Jill with a G 12-30-2012 07:57 AM

I joined the CCC again this year. I signed up last year, but just couldn't keep up. The year before though, I kept up and it was so worth it!! That's my goal this year, to keep up with the CCC challenge! I need to make over 100 Christmas cards, so the challenge really helps with that! I have a quite a few January Birthday cards to make too! I love Valentines cards, but I don't think I'll have time to make many of those this year. Just too busy working full time and sometimes bringing it home to do to. One day I'll retire, and then have plenty of time to craft away!!
