Have fun making your cards.

Haven't done mine yet, but I think I've finally settled on a design I like that hopefully won't be too hard to mass produce. Between family, friends, and coworkers, I have to make about 50 of them!

I've done about half of mine. Just wanted to let everyone know that the CCR free cuts for right now are Christmas cards.

Mine have been done for weeks, but that's because I got so stressed out last year that I decided to get them started earlier this year. I think I may have jumped the gun a little early though! I'm so loving all the christmas stuff out there but I have no real reason to buy anything because my cards are all done!

i got 10 free photo greeting cards. i have like 50 prints free on shutterfly, so i will probably create a digi card in a 4 by 6 format and get those free and be done with it. i just don't have the mojo to do it by hand this year.

I started mine yesterday. I am using the CTMH Pear and Partridge Christmas Card Workshop kit - love the papers in that kit!

I started mine a few weeks ago. I mass stamped the insides, backs and tags for the fronts & have been working on fronts as time permits. I have 18 of 30 done and my goal is to finish those up today, so I can put those supplies away. This is the 1st time I have ever gone with the same design for all my cards and it is definitely easier. The fronts are all a little different but same design.

Nope haven't even started thinking about it. I really don't send out cards these days except to my inlaws but now I'm thinking maybe I'll make a few for family and close friends.

Started mine yesterday using the new Stack from DCWV called "The First Noel".
A dilemma: I like listening to Christmas music while making Christmas cards, but not only is it not yet Thanksgiving, it's in the 70s here this week!
Do you Peas listen to holiday music while making cards, or whatever?

Love your blog, Sarah Webb - darling projects!
And ita, when mass producing cards, I love using punches and elements that you can change up a bit to make the design "fresh" each time without starting the entire card from scratch.

I make my cards most years. Last year I made all 110+ and then they were never sent out (they were waiting for the letter which DH was supposed to write and that never happened!) so I am using them this year.
With such a large list, it is tough to still be motivated and excited by the time I finish the last step on all of them, but I still enjoy most of the process so I'll continue to make them...until it's no longer any fun.
Have fun craftin' ladies!

I'm really not a winter holiday person, especially not card making and we recently had a death in the family. I've only got 3 people to even give cards to. If I end up colouring single images just for fun I'll probably put one or two of them onto a card and call that my holiday crafting done.

|Posted: 11/19/2012 4:28:30 AM|I'm almost done (I have 3 cards left to make), but I haven't posted all of those cards on my blog yet. I will continue through this week and the next. If you visit my blog, you'll find 7 very recent posts with Holiday cards. There will be more tomorrow.
I love Christmas cards and I'm so proud that I've been able to make a unique card for everyone this year. Usually, I'm running a bit late and have to produce several cards of the exact same design at the last minute. But this year, I managed to achieve my goals.
After I'm done with the cards, I'll make Christmas tags! Oh, I love this time of the year!
Patricia - Yes, I'm listening to Christmas music while making the cards! I can't get enough of those merry songs.

I like to make everyone a different card, but this year I am mass producing the ones that I am sure get thrown away.
Funny thing is I am still colouring images for them, so really they still take a fair bit of time to make, lol.
When I mass produce them I get bored, so I usually do them in different colours to mix them up a bit.
I got the idea and layout for a fellow YouTuber...I was going to change it up, but thought, just keep it simple..so much less stressful.
I will put them up on my blog in December.

I usually do easily 2 dozen as well as some stuff for the co-workers. But I try to do some cards during the year as well so I don't have that last minute get em done and mailed routine.

I have made mine, but not posted. Still need to add a pic that I won't get until we come back from our vacation to Cabo.
I also made for a friend of mine at work. I need to post those in my gallery. She wanted non-tradtional colors and patterns. It was very challenging for me, but I think they turned out pretty cute.
I already bought stuff to make mine for next year. M's and HL have most of their items already on clearance.
ETA: I just posted the non-traditional Christmas cards in my gallery.
