Mass producing


Up until last year, I always mass produced my Christmas cards.  I came up with one design, then started cutting, stamping and assembling.  Honestly, I hated every minute of it!!!  It felt like a chore and really stiffled my creativity.  So, last year I started early and was able to make ALMOST every card special and unique.  In the end I only had to mass produce 15, which was better than 75!!!!  This year though, I think I'm going to make it.  With 2 full months before Christmas, I only have 22 cards left to make :) 

Many crafters enjoy mass producing though.  I've heard others find it therapeutic and relaxing.  Along the way even I discovered some tips and techniques to make the process easier, yet still enabling me to produce stunning cards.  This is all included in my latest entry in the Clean & Simple Classroom at StampNation.  StampNation is an online community of papercrafters from around the world!  (Literally, we just had the newest international member join from Belgium!)  There are now 250 video tutorials, written tutorials, challenges and SO much more!  If you haven't joined yet, click here to learn more!

Have a good one!
