Here you can see my family's 
2010 Christmas Set.

This is my second year of making a set just like this.
(I'll post a picture of last years' set in a few days)

My set includes:
*  Christmas Cards
*  Kid's Thank You Cards
* Gift Tags
* Notebook

Here's a close up of our Christmas Card for this year:


Yep, I make the kids send thank you cards!!!



And a cute little Notebook for all those Christmas lists!
I created it by covering chipboard and using my Bind-it-All.




And the Gift Tag for all those presents!!



This adorable Penguin Greeting stamp is perfect for those Christmas mass production projects. Very little coloring, but with lots of those little extra touches (like gloss & glitter!) that will be sure to have the recipients feeling special without you spending tons of time making them all.  Believe me, it's very easy to do and TONS OF FUN!!

My Partner in Crafting Crime = #12 Clean & Simple

Paula said...

I just love the way you've made the penguin into a stamp on the thank you card. The image is such fun & all your details like the turquoise ribbon on the gift tag highlighting the hat so well makes the whole Christmas set beautifully thought out. I love the way you've used the colours throughout - varying the combination on the various projects just enough without disturbing the cohesivenss. Congratulations on it being featured.

What a great set, Wendy!! That must have kept you busy for a bit. And good for you teaching your children to write thank you notes as well. I alway have mine write them too. I think it's becoming a lost art - and yet it shouldn't!!
