More Craft Fair Goodies

I have my last craft fair of the season this Saturday at Lexington High School in Lexington Mass. I wanted to add a few more things to what I already have.

These are those wooden bags you can find at your local craft store with paper glued on to them. I stuffed them with my left over Halloween candy! Great way to get rid of it! I used my retired Christmas paper as well.

A Change of Pace

Took a break from Christmas stuff for a while. I saw this card on Wickedly Wonderful Creations a few weeks ago. I borrowed the stamp set from one of my team members (still haven’t given it back to her, LOL), and made my version of the card. Not much different than the original, why mess with perfection!

Main Card Components:

Stamp Set: Field Flowers

Paper: Concord Crush, Wisteria Wonder, Wisteria Wonder DSP

Mini Hershey Bar Holders

One of my customers Kerry, made the reindeer & penguin holders at a craft show I did with her. I saw the Grinch on another blog and I made up the Santa. You put little Hershey bars in these. Tonight I cut and punched all the pieces to make 100 of them! 20 of each. I have two more craft shows and I hope they go fast!

Simple Yet Elegant

Something simple yet elegant. I’ve been eyeing this set for a while, it’s Nature’s Pace. I just love the sketch look. I don’t have many sets like this so I thought I needed to add it to my collection.  The card stock is Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder. Off to make some Thanksgiving cards today!

Calendars for 2012

Thought I should make some calendars for 2012 to sell at my upcoming craft shows. I don’t want to make too many of these because if they don’t sell, I’m stuck with them!  I used 4 x 4 coasters and just glued card stock on them. Put a magnet on the back and your done! So fast & easy!

Get Well

I’m doing a craft show at a retirement community this weekend and need to have some Get Well Soon & With Sympathy cards for the clientele. This card looks so much better in person. There’s some glitter on this that you really can’t see it in this picture. But it really is a beautiful card.

Literally!!!!!  We live in Massachusetts and if you’ve been watching the news, you heard we had a wicked bad snow storm.  70% of my town was without power. Now, it’s down to 50%. They postponed trick or treating until Friday (some towns cancelled it totally!).It’s totally nuts!!!! In my 40-plus years of Halloweens, I NEVER remember snow on the ground!

I made about 5 cards tonight that I just didn’t like. You never see the bad ones, I only post the good ones. I really like the way this one came out.  I used Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy. This will be the project for the November 25th class.

This is the inside of it.
