Christmas is coming...

And so is a Christmas Stamp-a-Stack! It seems that my posts will come only quarterly - not what I had in mind when I created this blog, but I seem to be too busy to post more frequently, lol!

I feel like the school year just started, but it's already into October, and it's time to start thinking about Christmas cards. I know, it's still a couple of months away, but if I want to order my supplies and get them made, I have to start now.

For those of you who would love to hand-make your Christmas cards this year, but don't have the supplies, or the time to design them, this Stamp-a-Stack is for you!

You'll make 24 cards (plus one bonus card!) in one afternoon. The picture below shows the group of 12 cards - you'll made 2 of each. These are simple and quick to make, just stamps, ribbon and cardstock. Please contact me for dates and pricing!

Happy Stamping!

Summer Card Buffet

It's time for my first card buffet of the summer! I had so much fun creating these cards, and hope you like them too :) If you are interested in attending the card buffet, please email me asap to book your spot. If there is a card you particularly like, and you think you'd like to make several, let me know when you register so that I can cut extras.
The card buffet will take place at my home, on Thursday, July 23rd at 7:00pm. If you prefer an afternoon session, please let me know, and I will schedule one if there is enough interest.

What is a card buffet? For those of you who have never attended a card buffet, it works kind of like a food buffet. You make only the cards you want to make, leave the ones you don't like. The minimum number of cards to make at a buffet is 10, but you can make more if you like, and if you have time! You also get to stamp a matching envelope for each card. It's a great way to stock up on greeting cards without buying a ton of supplies. For class cost, or to register, please email me!

A Sad Farewell

Today I took the plunge and emailed my SU customers to tell them that I am no longer going to be a demonstrator. I have offered all of my customers a great discount on any orders placed this month - with the last order being June 30th.
I have mixed feelings about this move. I really enjoy being a demo, but just don't have time anymore to worry about catalogues, specials and minimum sales. I will miss being on the "inside" of SU, seeing the new products first, seeing demo-only samples, etc., but most of all, I will miss the team of SU demos that have become my friends over the last 3 1/2 years.
That said, I have some great plans for MCC, so stay tuned! :)

Welcome to Melanie's Custom Creations! I am thrilled to have you join me. I am a Mom, a Kindergarten teacher, and a will shortly be a *former* Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. My life is too hectic and busy to keep up with the SU business, but I still love to teach and hold events - so Melanie's Custom Creations has come into being.

I intend this blog to be a place you can come for inspiration, and to keep up to date with my events.
