Craft Fair Update

We went to the craft fair last week and we did okay. We sold some of our hand-made items and some of our cards... I think we might have some people who are interested in coming to our classes which is great too. All in all I think it was a successful day and who knows who might call us later after picking up our cards!

Hopefully someone will be inspired and want to come out and learn more and join us for fun with stamping and crafting and letting our creative juices flow. That is what it is all about and when we have the most fun... We love meeting new people and having them join us.

Candy Tins

This is one of my favorite projects that I have made yet... I think that they are WAY CUTE and can be used for anything. I am going to use these ones for Visiting Teaching this month but they can totally be custom-made for any holiday or any theme so easily.

The candies are wrapped with the paper to match and the tin holds about 12 little candies so it is a complete gift. I hope the ladies like them as much as I do.

Mother's Day Frame

I made these frames also for the Craft Fair since Mother's Day is just around the corner. I think that any mom would love to get one of these. They are made with chipboard and adorned with ribbon and buttons.


I made some candles for the upcoming Craft Fair that I will be at this coming Thursday. I was excited to play with some of the Rub-Ons that I had and I was able to put them to good use on these candles. I really liked how they turned out. I liked the colored ones on the white candles and I liked how the white stood out on the red candles. Very BOLD. Hopefully they will sell, sell, sell.....

Gift Card Holder

This is a very cute gift card holder that was made at the Birthday Stamp Camp. It can be made with a boy or girl theme and can also be changed up to represent any other holiday that you need....for example, a tree for Christmas, or hearts for Valentine's Day or an Anniversary... it is very universal and easy to make. The polka-dot paper in the picture represents the gift card.

Envelope Card

Envelope/ Pouch Card

Open card

We made these cards at the Birthday Stamp Camp and they were a hit. Not only are they a card but they hold a treat or a surprise in the back as well. They are adorable and way easy to make. They take only one piece of 12 x 12 double-sided piece of paper.

***If anyone ever wants directions for any of the projects or cards... or wants me to make them a sample or make them cards or scrapbook pages or something please let me know. Leave me a comment or send me an e-mail at I would be happy to see what we could arrange.

Falling behind....

I have not posted on here in FOREVER!!! I was totally excited to start this blog and was going to stay on top of it and post pictures of all of the things that I make because I really do make stuff constantly but then life got in the way and I have been so overwhelmed with all kinds of stuff.

I am going to try to do better!!! Haven't we all said that before!

In the past few weeks. I have been working on all kinds of stuff. I did a stamp camp birthday party which was way fun, and very successful. I have also been putting some things together for a craft fair that I will be at next Thursday. Hopefully that goes well also. I have of course been doing my regular Friday night card classes, and my Thursday night Scrapbook classes too. I told you I have been doing stuff I just haven't had the time to put the posts on here....

So... On with the posts!!!
