Free Tutorial!

I have a quick and easy Tutorial of my small legal pads I sell at my craft fairs. One of my customers bought some for her childrens’ teachers and the teachers want to know how to make them.

So here’s a tutorial for anyone who wants it, especially for all you teachers out there, they make great gifts, and they are fast and easy to do!

This isn’t the best picture of it, but you can get the idea. If you do use the tutorial, please leave me a comment or a link to your creation! Enjoy!

Halloween Shadow Box

I know I haven’t posted for a while.  This week was my travel week and I also had a paper due for school. Now I’m done school until Sept 6th so no work there, but we are also heading to Disney on Wed!!!  I’ll try to have some stuff in the “post queue”.

This is a shadow box for Halloween I did today.  I used the new Googly Ghouls set from the mini  I actually used every stamp in the set for this one (plus another tree stamp I had laying around).  I just love Halloween!

At my downline meeting last month, one of my team members told me that she made magnetic book marks at the fairs she had done.  She put ribbons on the tops of hers, but I decided to make mine a little different.  They are SUPER simple and work up faster than any other thing I make.  The base piece is 8 x 2. Score at 4 and fold over. Place a piece of DSP on the front, ( 3 -3/4 x 1 3/4) and decorate any way you like!  The magnets I used are those credit card magnets you can get any office supply store. I cut them and put on the inside of the bookmark. They are the least bulkiest magnets I could find and they are self adhesive  In theh first picture below, I made a small comp book to go with the bookmark.  That’s actually a tip I have for all you craft fair gals.  Make a lot of inexpensive items that match and people will buy 1 of each as a bigger gift! Also, did you notice the ink stains on my fingers in the last picture? Sign of a true stamper!
