A few weeks ago I attended a Stamp Camp here in The Villages. I've helped put on Stamp Camps before, when I was a Stampin' Up demonstrator, but this was the first I took part in as a participant.  What fun!  I made 15 cards in 3 hours!  Now that's what I call some serious stamping and card making.  There were actually 4 hours allowed for the stamp camp, but I was off schedule and got there an hour late.  No problem I got everything done. 

Most of the cards were designed to be either Birthday, Thanksgiving or Christmas cards.  I couldn't do much to adapt the Christmas cards to become the Thank You cards I needed to send out, but was able to adapt all the Thanksgiving and all but one of the Birthday cards to be what I needed. So it was a very productive day for me and time well spent.  Of course it was great fun!

The Thank You cards have all been sent out.  I hope those who received them enjoyed getting them as much as I enjoyed making them.  As for the Christmas cards I have a start on the cards I need to send out in a few weeks.  I can hardly believe it is time to send out Christmas cards. 

I very much enjoy the process of coming up with a card design, but when a large number of cards are needed in a short period of time Stamp Camps are a wonderful thing.  I look forward to attending more of them.

My next stamping event will be this Friday.  It is not a Stamp Camp, but just a time for me to take a project I want to work on and stamp and make cards with others who share in this passion.  I am hoping to spend time making more cards for Christmas at this.  They will be my own design and probably mass produced.  I have a lot of mailing to do this Christmas season!
