But it is just SO friggin’ cute!!!  I realized I’ve been using it a lot, so I will ease up a bit.

I’m making these for my upcoming craft fair to sell.  One of my team members made this one, so I had to CASE it! I have to fix the spacing in between the squares, but I’m too tired to do it tonight.

I’d like your opinion on what I was going to sell it for. Leave me a comment. Keep in mind the frame retails for over $8.00.

More Craft Fair Items

I bought one of the Stampin’ Up! Simply Scrappin’ kits. It has these adorable owls in it! I just had to make something more than a card with them!

I’m going to make a few of these books to sell at my upcoming craft fair. They make great teacher gifts! It’s just a regular old composition book covered with paper.

Craft Fair Goodies!

Starting to work on craft fair items to sell.  This is the reason I don’t get rid of old retired paper and I keep the stamp sets I love once they retire.  I make craft fair goodies to sell!

These are two wooden clip boards I got at my local craft store.  They are great because the hardware comes off easily.  I took the hardware off, painted the sides white, covered it with paper and you see the rest!  The Modge Podge actually didn’t work as well as just plain old adhesive.  It was a a lot more messier with the Modge Podge as well.  They worked up so fast too!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

So I thought I could get away with giving my daughter those Valentines cards you can get at the Dollar Store to give to the kids in her class.  Last night she asks me if I’m going to make anything for her class.  I’ve spoiled the kid!!  So today, I spent the afternoon making these little goodies.  It’s the last year I have to so I guess I should be a little sad 🙂

The boys are getting the ones I made with the Candy Wrapper Sizzix Die. I’ve been wanting to try that anyway so it was a good test run.  The little purses are ones I CASED from one of my customers who made a bunch of them for her aunt’s 75th Birthday party.  The one she gave me didn’t  get on the site because my daughter ate the candy.  Thanks for the inspiration Suzanne! The purses were the easiest. It’s just a Top Note folded over.  How clever is that!

I just loved the owl punch, but I think I should start using all the other goodies I have too!  I was inspired by about 3 different cards so no real CASING here.  This is a great guy card that we’ll be doing in an upcoming class in March.

For The Girls

I’ll be doing a class for a Girl Scout troop this month.  This is the 3rd card we will be doing in the class.  I love using the spring colors again, maybe it will make spring come a little faster!!!!  I think the girls will love doing this one.

Baja Blue Butterfly

I don’t normally do insides of my cards. But I thought it was time to shake it up a bit.  This is card I didn’t even think looked that good and wasn’t going to make it into a class. But I added the brads and did the decorating on the inside and decided it looked pretty good.  Look for it in a March class.

Petal Cone Madness!

I’m like a kid when it comes to new SU products.  When I get something new, I just can’t stop playing with it!  I’m in the spring mode too so here’s another Easter project. A tutorial will be available in the future for this.  It’s a little tricky to do the top of the carrot. But it’s just so cute!!!

Just got some more goodies from the Occasion Mini.  I wasn’t going to order much from it, but I ended up ordering more and more!  That’s the trouble with Stampin’ Up! You see some great project another talented stamper created and you just want to make it too!

This is the Petal Cone Die. I keep seeing such great things made with it. It’s great for making baby shower favors and things like that.  This is going to my hostess for the month.  It’s filled with Hershey’s Kisses!  Directions for this will be available early next week.

Hoppy Easter!!!!

I know, I’m getting ahead of myself.  I really want spring to come, especially today since we are getting 2 feet of snow!!!!!!  Well, I’ll be stuck in the house stamping today!!

I just love this card.  All punches. The verse is off the computer so no stamping!! Look for it in an upcoming spring class!

Now that I see it online, I think I need more eggs to the right of the bunnys’ butt. What do you think?  It always looks so different after you take a picture of it!
