Fall Candy Dish

I borrowed the Perfectly Preserved bundle from one of my downline gals this weekend. As you can see, I’ve been using it for the past few days. I think I’m putting it on my wish list! I wasn’t thrilled with it when I saw it in the Holiday Mini, but the more and more I see people making things with the, the more I want it.

I made this fall candy dish with the set and the DSP.  I’m going to try to sell a few of these at my upcoming craft fairs.

Perfectly Preserved

Two for one night!  I could have posted tomorrow, but I loved this card and want to post it tonight. I need a few Thanksgiving cards to sell this fall. I only have this set for a little while, I borrowed it from one of my team members, and I think it may need to be on my wish list now!

I just LOVED this little nugget holder.  There’s a great video on how to do it as well. I did it a little different.  She used the DSP for the jar cover. I just stamped it with the stamp.  I also tried a Christmas one as well. Came out just as cute!  These are really small though. The picture makes them look bigger actually.  Enjoy!

Snowman Treat Box

Starting on my Christmas Treat Boxes.  This one is made with the SU purse die!  I just turned it around and didn’t put the handle on it.  The hat is a 2 x 1 1/2 Basic Black piece with a 3/8″ x 2 3/4″  piece (I think, too lazy to go measure right now!) So easy, fast & so dang cute!

Also, for all my local readers, our yard sale is postponed until next Saturday.  I will keep you posted on that!

Farmer’s Market Tomorrow!

I’m doing my one and only Billerica Farmer’s Market tomorrow afternoon on the common in Billerica Center tomorrow.  It goes from 3:00 – 7:00 (although I think they start packing up at 6:30 this late in the season).  Stop by if you can!

I did a lot of the markets last year, but this is my only one this year.  I had school on Monday nights this summer and was not able to do them. I’ll be there more next year though, school is almost done!

These cute little lollipop holders were the idea of one of my downline members, Karen.  She does some great work and I had to thank her for letting me CASE her!  I’ll be selling these tomorrow at the market.

I just made a box to fit the pop and decorated it. Easy and cute! These boxes for the Blow Pops measure 2 x 8 (you’ll get 5 out of one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock!). Score at 1 1/2  –  3 3/4  – 5 1/4 – 7 3/4.  Use a hole punch for the top.  Different lollipops are different sizes so this might not work for a Tootsie pop.  The pop must sit on the bottom of the box in order for it to stand up. Decorate it as you like, not just for Halloween. These would make a great birthday party favor. Kids love them!

I think I should put the bow down a little more to cover the wrapper.  I’m just too lazy to go and take another picture!

It’s the fall and classes fill up quick now a days!

Spongebob Square Pants!

My daughter is going to a birthday party this weekend and the birthday boy loves Spongebob Square Pants.  I made this composition book for him.  It’s the only one I’m going to make because it was a lot more involved than I thought it was going to be!

Beginner Class Samples

On Sunday, I’m doing a beginner class for some newbies.  These are designs I have done before, but since they are new stampers, they haven’t done these yet. I’m all for recycling!

Believe it or not, these are very easy cards to make.  If we have time, we will do one more project.  It depends on how the class goes.  I love doing beginner classes, everyone is always so interested in me talking….unlike when I talk to my family!!!!

Light Studio

Someone asked me to post a picture of my light studio, actually it’s a light tent. It’s very cool.  I came with other colored backgrounds as well so I can change them out if I want. Not sure if I will, but you never know.  It’s from Cowboy Studios, I got it on Amazon.com.

Halloween Treat Bags

My new light box came today!  It’s HUGE!!!!!!  Bigger than my home made one!  But I’m so happy with how the pictures came out.

Now you can really see my mistakes! I actually just noticed that the box with the Witches feet is damaged, but I didn’t take a single picture of it.  I’ll have to give that one to my daughter, she won’t notice 🙂

These are little Halloween Treat bags.  They are actually the 2 – 4 – 6 – 8 boxes (here’s a tutorial). The easiest style is the one with the small binder clip on it.  You can actually reuse that one. The other ones are stapled shut.

What do you think of my new light box??
