    Hi Julia,
    I so enjoy visiting your blog. Thanks for all the inspiration you offer. I am hoping to make some cards to add to my stash to have for future use.

  3. I love your blog–you always do something different from everyone else. Thanks for sharing your work. As for Oct 4th, I’m going to make something new and different. I’m going to try a technique I haven’t tried before.

  4. Hi Julia, Thanks for all your inspiration – I always look forward to your blog. I hope to getting a start on my Christmas cards and although I thought I had an idea, I now have seen so many new ones that I may be making a variety of different ones this year instead of sticking to one design and stamp set. On Oct 4th though I may be working on the monogram gift sets I have planned for some friends. Have a great day.

  5. Hello! I am an avid follower of your blog and you should know that you have enabled me to purchase many stamps! LOL!

    I am looking forward to World Cardmaking Day! A great reason to spend the day playing with paper!

  6. I am so looking forward to Oct. 4th! And Christmas cards! Last year I made a HUGE variety so this year I will probably do the same. I have this MFT set that I will use, as well as some Bellas, and I have some SU! Stamps coming soon too! Thanks so much for your giveaway; PaperCraft books rock!!!


  7. WOW!! Sounds fun. I just ordered my supplies for Holiday cards, however next Saturday is our Homecoming and a big parade is planned. No WCMD activities here. ;(

  8. My only plans for October 4th are spending time in my studio to work on new cards for different challenges.

  9. I will be making lots of birthaday card and thank you cards this World card making day. Thanks for giving a chance to win an awesome magazine.

  10. Hi Julia,

    This is a great giveaway. I will be making some Thanksgiving cards to send out.


  11. I will be away from home at my nephew’s wedding, so no card making day activities for me. But I need to get busy and make some cards to give away that day, so maybe that could be my way of celebrating!
    Thanks for a chance to win!

  12. I can’t wait for WCD. I have an event to go to!
    As for Christmas cards, I am loving Inkadinkado stamps! I’m thinking of getting some of them.
    BTW, thanks for sharing all of your work with us.

  13. I recently got a snowman punch that I plan to use in making Christmas cards. I’ve experimented with various techniques that I can use on cards, tags, gifts, etc.

  14. I don’t know WHAT to do for my Christmas cards this year. It’s time to stop recycling the 5 sets of holiday stamps I have and add a new set to the mix but what to choose?

    I think I’m going to look for something with text, lots of lovely fonts & sentiments.

    And I’m a traditional colour kind of gal.

  15. I haven’t set on a card for the holidays this year yet….I try to do alot of the same but do special ones for our parents. It will be fun to do some challenges!

  16. Hello Julia,
    Thanks for all the info. I am in a frenzy of fall birthday cards and I haven’t got a plan for my holiday cards yet so I will be looking for inspiration.

  17. I will be making around 55 Christmas cards for family and our church community. Awesome, I would love to win a copy. Thanks for the chance.

  18. Hi Julia…I plan on using a few SU! Christmas sets to make a variety of Chrissy cards…don’t want to get bored just churning out the same over and over so am working on a few styles. Cheers.

  19. Hi Julia,
    I’m a frequent visitor of your blog. I love your style, and look forward to seeing what cards you’ve made. I will probably get started on making candy boxes made of acetate, which I plan to give out for Christmas. Thanks for the chance to win the magazine.

  20. Well… now that World Card Making Day is bearing down on me, I will put together a prototype for a Christmas card. The actual production of 50 or so cards will have to wait. We will be away from home (and all my stamping stuff) for the weekend. Our daughter Marcy and her husband are taking us to Ruth Chris Steak House to say “thanks” for our help during the birth of #3 baby! What great kids we have!

  21. I got to mark my calendar and make sure I stamp that day. :o) I should make easy but elegant cards this year. I am a bit behind with Christmas cards so I want to be ready when the time comes to send the cards out. Thanks for the chance to win the magazine. I sure could use some inspirations. :o)

  22. I’m having fun creating meaningful Thanksgiving cards for this season. Would love to win your book….

  24. HI Julia,

    I’m hoping to add to my stash of everyday cards, but also to get a couple of card sets done as pressies for Christmas.


  25. I am lucky enough to be visiting family for a few weeks, so I will be making cards with my Mom and 5 sisters. You can’t imagine how happy that makes me feel. We will work on cards, plus we want to try some really cute peppermint pattie Halloween goodies. When I made them last year for Christmas, my DGkids loved how cute they were, yet didn’t hesitate to devour them!

  26. I am working on birthday cards as usual, but also thank you cards to some women who’ve helped me with a church project and Halloween cards for my Godchildren.

  27. hello! I have all kinds of supplies coming in so that I can get started on my Christmas cards – vintage all the way is my style! but then I throw in some really wild off the wall things every once in a while, like the rocking skulls my teenage boys love! :) gotta keep them happy, too! I have lots of cards planned for Saturday. lots of blog hopping as well and hoping to do some SCS challenges. should be a WONDERFUL day!!!
