JANUARY *CCC *Christmas Card Challenge & Goal Report

Well, as the end of January makes its way toward us, I wanted to share the first 10 of the 120 Christmas Cards for 2023. I put the main product used for each card in the caption. If you see something and want to know what it is, just shoot me an email and I can most likely give you the product name or where I picked it up. I keep pretty good notes in my Color My Life App.

I hope that you find some kind of inspiration from these cards, and know I am excited to show what’s in the mix for February. It’s kinda fun to know you can get out your Christmas goodies and play all year long. I have a lot of great ideas and am really excited to use some of the products I got this year more than just for a month!

Some other fun cards that went out this month include some birthday and and a few anniversaries. Of course some of my encouragement cards are going out tomorrow or the next day.

I completed a class from Sandy Allnock. The pen & ink class I started and didn’t finish is now done! Upcoming classes I am signed up for include, The Altenew/Spellbinders class in February and in March the Concord & 9th class. I am very excited for both of these classes. I have also several classes I have in the wings.

Some of the stuff I learned in Sandy’s class was amazing. I don’t want to share the techniques as it wouldn’t be fair to give away her content. I can tell you she has a way of teaching that is fun. You don’t really feel like you can do it wrong, or that you aren’t good enough. She really did give some great ideas and I enjoyed the class a lot! If you are interested, you can follow this link to the class I took. (It is NOT an affiliate link, I get nothing for sharing this class). As of the timing of this post, the class is at a discounted price so….check it out!

Feburary has some fun stuff I’ve made for Valentine’s day I will not share just yet.

    It was difficult to choose, there are some adorable ones. The gnomes one came in 2nd.

    I agree – it was hard to choose! I think my favorite is the one with Santa and the Missus (and an elf?) Like the frame and would like to know how you made that partial snowflake on it…

      Ahhh I created that frame on my silhouette. I made a rectangle, then I off set it. Used a few snowflakes from my library and welded them to the one frame. Thanks for asking! If you need more help let me know. IF you have a machine I can try and email you the file. 🙂

    Update, I added a new snowflake frame cut to the resources page. It is a bit different but I made the previous one and didn’t save it.
