Okay, so 89 cards divided by 2 is 44 projects at 10 per project + 10 for stash + 10 Christmas paper = 1,320 points.

I asked about supplies for the cards specifically on the UIU sign-up thread, since usually we get a couple days of lead time before the UIU month starts, but this signup was posted without lead time.

Hey, the rules state that as soon as you earn 100 points, you get to use a newly purchased item and count it as stash.

And we want to encourage everyone to use their stash, right? Cards make that easy :).

With Christmas/Holiday cards, I had to give SOME leeway for purchasing, considering that I sprung the challenges last minute and even though some of us (me, cough couch) have quite a bit of cardstock, I usually don't have THAT much of any one color on hand. But if they help someone meet their Holiday cards goal and use up some stash? Golden in my book :).

ah see so you are enabling us to go shop some more! LOL
I will have to buy stuff. I keep card stock, a good amount but not usually more than ten sheets of any one color.
have to get a stop at a scrap store into my weekend somehow!

Ok, so I finished 100 cards = 50 LO/projects.

10 LO, 10 Christmas supplies (I counted the red & green CS, especially after being embossed) X 50 = 1000 UIU points.

I had 243 UIU points, previously redeemed 100. I did purchase gold CS to matt with, used 12 sheets. Every time I redeemed tpoints I got to use another sheet as stash, which netted me 9 of them free - at 8 cards/sheet, that is 72, or 36 LO/projects, x10 = 360 more UI points for a total of 1360 UIU points for my cards.

PLEASE don't make me explain how I earned each sheet of CS, as it would be tedious for both of us LOL!!!
