I have to say I am very excited to be hosting my very FIRST Stamp-A-Stack this coming Saturday. The whole idea came up when I asked my regular monthly card class girls if they would be interested in doing an additional Christmas Card class in November.
Then... oh my goodness... it was like the hen house opened up for an egg sale. Everyone had so may ideas and also asked if they could bring a guest.... hmmm.
... which lead me to ask if they might want a Stamp-A-Stack (SAS).
After I explained it a bit, they all loved the idea...so we'll see how it goes.
I printed up a Simple "Rules" hand-out to follow, including items such as: step out of the moving 'circle' if they wish to chat, grab a snack, or just take a break.
I plan to have 12 - 14 kit bins.... I will set a timer for 15 minutes ( I searched my phone bell tones and chose an old a-UuuuGa Horn ring tone sound for my timer). Can you hear it in your head?
Also if they don't finish when the timer goes off: they pick up their card items and move on to the next bin; however, They can come back and finish at the end. I am hoping this will keep a few of my gals focused.
I am trying to keep the cards simple and keep the materials moving without having one person hold up a bin or monopolize a bin. They can make as many cards as they like, but I ask they listen for the timer and keep moving if they are stamping. I won't let them do two of same in a row, they must give the others a chance to make one, first.
There will be some brand NEW STAMPERS TOO! A few girls from work and few from my neighborhood! Yippee... Love Newbies! Maybe I'll get more customers, OR a new class?
Well here are the 13 kits I have made:
Do you have a favorite????
