When it's my birthday, I always like to celebrate for a whole week. Lunch with friends, a bit of extra stamping time, a trip to Starbucks (which I normally reserve for when I'm traveling!), an extra cupcake… what about you? How do you treat yourself?
We went a bit beyond that over at StampNation for our 7th birthday and we've been celebrating for more than a MONTH! Now, THAT'S what I'm talking about!
Our celebration was in the form of our “Birthday Card Stash – DONE” class! This class wasn't just about teaching and video tutorials. We wanted to go beyond that in the spirit of our LEARN – SHARE – DO philosophy.
Here's the rundown and how to participate:
- Download our Perpetual Calendar and fill out the calendar with every person's birthday you'll need for the year.
- LEARN: View the video tutorials for the class- there are 7 categories of card types.
- DO: Create all the cards for those on your Perpetual Calendar for this year.
- SHARE: Share your cards with your StampNation Sisters and Bros on the site.
- Store your cards so they are ready to sign, seal and deliver for all those important birthdays this year!
VIDEO TUTORIALS: we invited 7 companies to celebrate with us. They each made an exclusive video tutorial just for members, then challenged us to create birthday cards inspired by the video. Here's a peek:
