Last Craft Show of the Season

I will be doing my last craft show of the season this Sat, Dec 1 at the Lexington High School, 251 Waltham Street, Lexington Mass.  It’s run by The Best Buddies Association.  It’s one of the best craft fairs around so if you can make it, I’ll be there 9:00 – 3:00. It’s a long day, but so worth it!

I have a ton of Ghirardelli chocolate squares to sell so I’m hoping these little babies go this weekend at my craft fair!  They worked up so fast!  The paper is 5 x 3 1/4. Place adhesive on 3 sides of the paper and wrap around the square.  Use the crimper on the edges and decorate!  Yum!

These are great stocking stuffers or on top of gifts.

More Christmas Treat

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Made a great turkey dinner and still had time to stamp!  I found these little cuties on Mafer’s Creations. Of course, I can’t read French, but I’m pretty good at figuring things out.

She used the Top Not Die for the holder. It’s filled with the Hershey Nuggets,it holds 3. The Top Note Die is scored 1/4″ away from the center of the peak on both sides.  The band is 1″ x 8 1/4 and is scored at 1 3/4, 2 1/4, 5 3/4 & 6 1/4.  I used a variety of punches to decorate the band.

Super Easy Gift Card Holders

I did a craft show this weekend and a few people asked me for gift card holders. I really didn’t have any so here are a bunch I’ll have at my next craft show!  I’ll also be doing the snow flake one at my Free Beginner stamp class on Tuesday night!

It’s super simple to make.  The card stock measures 7 3/4 x 5.  Score at 2 1/2 & 6. The Designer Series Paper measures 2 1/4 x  4 3/4 & the smaller one on the bottom is 1 1/2 x 4 3/4.  The piece on the inside where the “To/From” stamp is measures 2 1/4 x 4 3/4 as well (it’s on the back of the flap where the bigger DSP is).

Just  glue the sides of the small flap so it will hold the gift card.  The band is 1 x 7 3/4.  Wrap around the holder and glue closed. I used the small scallop punch with circle punches.  You could use the lager scallop if you like or just circle punches.  It works up SO fast.

I made these to fit in Stampin’ Up!’s note card envelopes.

Lovely As A Tree

One of my new customers purchased a very old stamp set, Lovely As A Tree.  It’s been around for 11 years, that’s almost half as long as Stampin’ Up! has been around. There are over 9000 samples up on Splitcoast Stampers of the set!

I did two different designs that are similar, I saw this up on Pinterest. Then I did a more Christmas type card.  Again, these look so much better in person.  Enjoy!

Baby Card

Did a craft show last week and realized I didn’t have a lot of baby cards to sell.  I saw a card similar to this a while back, but can’t find it now.  I used some retired DSP, can’t for the life of me think of it now, gaining an hour of sleep didn’t help me much!
