Merry Christmas with "All in the Family"

Please continue down after this post to view Kathy's card giveaway... it's fantastically cute! There are three ways to enter and each entry requires a comment!

So as many of my stampin' club friends know I have been starting to collect the "All in the Family" stamp sets, I've loved them for a LONG time and knew that there was so much I could do with them. What kept me from buying them in the past was that I had no idea how you would build the people, because there was no way to see where you were stamping. Well then I was introduced to the Stamp-a-ma-jig (pg.198 in catalogue) which is amazing. I'd love to know who came up with this idea. Anyway, it allows you to line up your stamps perfectly, so these little people can be built!

I decided this year for my family cards to use "All in the Family" to create holiday family pictures, for our family members. It was fun to create the people and try to create different clothing looks using the few options your given in the set. I'm hoping in the future that they'll bring out a set with more clothes options. For these cards I also used the tree from "Loads of Love" and the present from "Family Accessories". Hope you enjoy a look at my cards and that your inspired to use this set. More posts to come with what this set can do!
