We hard our Christmas Stamp-A-Stack today. We made 15 cards - 5 different with three of each kind. I will post these cards tomorrow, plus others that I made to display.

The following 6 cards were ones I made for swaps at the Stampin' Up Portland Regional Convention in October. I ended up making 10 of each card and swapped for 60 totally different cards. What Fun!! I have no clue how many people were there, but our MC was no other than Shelli Gardner, the creator of Stampin' Up. We learned lots of new techniques; in fact so many our heads were spinning at the end of the day!!
