Over the course of seven hours (including time for lunch) we managed to make over 560 cards. I'm taking 535 of these to the Stampin' Up! UK office tomorrow and from there they will be going to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. You are probably wondering where the other 25 cards went. Well, those who came to make the cards were able to take some home with them - not everyone did though.
Here are some of the photos from the day.
Including the three of us organisers (that's Helen, Linda and I), there were sixteen of us making cards throughout the day.
By 11.30 am we had 288 cards made.
There were five basic designs for the cards, but because we were using the fabulous Candy Cane Lane and Presents & Pinecones Designer Series Paper on four of them, there ended by being lots of different variations.
So this is what 535 cards with envelopes look like once they are all boxed up.
A huge thank you to everyone who came along and helped with the making. I hope you enjoyed it, I know that I certainly did.
PS photos of the secret santa cards from Saturday's christmas party will be posted tomorrow.
