Happy Tuesday!

I’m addicted to the Festive Flurry bundle and the Gift Bow Die!  Just can’t help it!

These boxes are from the main catalog, they are very sturdy and great if you give out cookies or fudge. I would use wax paper so it doesn’t stain the inside of the box and the recipient can reuse it.

I stamped the boxes with the snow flake from Festive Flurry with the white Stazon. It dries faster than I thought and is a great affect.

More Craft Show Goodies

I guess muslin bags are in this year. I see them everywhere.  I decided I bought too much “fall” themed chocolate Hershey Kisses and I need to get them out of my house!

I stamped the bag using Early Espresso and filled the bag with the Kisses. I recycled my wine tag project and stuck it onto the muslin bag with hot glue.  I won’t eat the candy now that it’s ready for my next craft show!

Festive Flurry

Happy Sunday!

We did this in a class on Friday, and I realized I never posted it!  I sold a lot of these at my craft show last week and presented them as wine bottle tags.  They were a big hit!  I realized that I’ve bought almost everything in the Holiday Mini this year!

Again, sorry about the pic. I bought a new bulb for my light studio, so hopefully the pictures will come out better than this one.

Also, a lot of my classes are filled up. I’m adding a Saturday morning class for the classes that are full.

Have a great day!

Craft Fair Summary

I’ve had a lot of emails about my display from yesterday and how my items sold. Here’s a quick summary.

Gift Bow Gift Card Holders – People LOVED these.  I sold them $4.00 or 4 for $15.00.  I only had one style, so I need to do some more of those. You can find the supplies under the Workshops Category.



Elf Bag – this was a great hit!  I did this in a class a few weeks ago, but I made it a little different.  There is no elf on the back of the tag, no ribbon bows on the shoes and I added a little gift card.  They worked up very fast with those changes.  The first picture below is the original one, and the second picture is the one I sold for $4.00.  The original one also has the verse on the back of the tag. You can find the supplies under the workshop category.





These bags were super simple.  They are just the white bags you get from your local craft store, then I just put two of the gift bows from the Pretty Presents Designer Bows kit in the mini.  You get 10 bows, 2 of each design for $3.95.  I sold 4 of these kits to customers!  They loved the idea!. The Gumball Green bow fits on the bigger bags and the Real Red polka dot is great on the smaller bags.  You can use them for Christmas or generic birthday too!

Peace on Earth

I have to apologize for the quality of my pictures. I broke a light in my photo studio and haven’t replaced it yet with the right light bulb.  Have to get my husband on that!

Here is a card we will be doing in an class on Nov 8th.  We will be using the envelope framlits from the Holiday Mini.  It also involves embossing and white Stazon.  There’s room in the class so sign up soon!

One Down, 2 To Go!

First craft fair of the season is now in the history books!  I was a VERY successful show!  I sold out of a lot of my Halloween candy – which is a good thing!!!

My big hits were the rain deer candy on my previous post, the wooden gift boxes, my elf bags and ornaments.  Gonna have to crank those out, very popular items!

Thanks to all my friends, customers and family who stopped by today.  I’m now sitting on my couch and just going to watch the Red Sox and Bruins!
