Up Up and Away

Just a quick card I’m posting while in Disney. I forgot to post before I left.

This will be in an up coming class so check the schedule if you want to make it!  It’s one of the new sets from the IB & C for 2011 & 2012. I think I should move the balloon over just a tad though.

Halloween Note Pads

Ok, two posts tonight!

These are the cutest, easiest things to make. The hardest part is getting the 5″ x 8″ note pads cut correctly at my local office supply store!  What an ordeal THAT was!  You want buy a package of 12 of the 5 x 8 small note pads. Have have them make 2 cuts to make 2 – 8″ x 2″ pads like these below. Make sure they cut from the right side so you don’t end up with the red line down the front.  They should charge you about $2.00 per through a stack of them.

One other issue I had with the office supply place is that they told me “my” pads had staples in them and it broke the blade. The pads were “their” pads I purchased from them! Couldn’t they see the staples???? NO! What a fiasco that was. Time to change where I get my pads cut!!!

Let’s just look at these cute things! I put magnets on the back so they can be put on the fridge. Great craft fair items!!!

Look for these in an upcoming class in September as well!

With Sympathy Card

Unfortunately, I needed a couple of With Sympathy cards.  I discovered a great new stamper from whom I shamelessly cased this card from.  Linda’s Stampin Loft.  I changed it slightly, but it’s so obvious it was a CASE.  She does beautiful work! It was great to pull out a couple of old sets I haven’t used for a while.

Card Components:

Card Stock: Night of Navy, Lucky Limeade

Stamp Sets: Vintage Vogue, Sincere Salutation

Accessories: 1/8″ Night of Navy, White Embossing Powder, Night of Navy Brads, pearls, Embosslit- Beautiful Wings

So I went on Facebook to ask all my FB friends to save their Crystal Light containers. They all want to know why, well here’s why!  These are great containers for kids to keep on the desks to put crayons, pencil, money or anything else they want.  It’s really easy.  The paper measures 6 x 8 (the ones with two types of DSP are cut 3 x 8). It’s great because you can get 2 of them out of one piece of DSP!

Don’t you love the Mickey Mouse one??? My daughter has dibbs on that one already!

I didn’t end up doing the Farmer’s Market tonight due to the weather so hopefully I can do it next week. I plan to show really detailed pictures of my table. A few people have been asking me about because craft show season is fast approaching!

Here’s another example of the clear mount note pad/coupon holder.  You can use it for receipts for your next Disney trip!!!  I have to make one for us!! We leave in 13 days 🙂
