Prepping for Fairs

pigscanflyI LOVE this stamp set!  I don’t know why.  I am not a HUGE pig fan.  But, I just love it!  As I have started to prepare for not only upcoming craft fairs but a Women’s Expo here in a week or so, I just needed this set to be a part of it.  This is a refillable notepad cover (I have the instructions on my blog here:  https://stampwithaltitude.com/2017/02/03/throwback-thursday/).  Anyway, This Little Piggy is a great set.  I will post more of these soon.

I used blender pens to water color in Soft Sky, Powder Pink, Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride.  The notepad cover is Melon Mambo with a Basic Black mat.  I stamped the pig and sentiments in Basic Black Archival.  What do you think of this one?

Easy “Clutch” card holder!

CCREW717TECoutsideSo I have a great new project to show you!  I did NOT design this.  It is super easy and super fun to make.  The hardest time I had was designing the cards that went on the inside.  I have an idea why.  See, when I started this project, I had an order come in of some new goodies…. like Embossing Paste.  I wanted so badly to break into it that I couldn’t function! Wait until you see the fun projects I made with it though (they are coming a couple of days)…. I have so much to show you!!

CCREW717TECAnyway, I got the idea from splitcoaststampers.  Have you visited that site yet?  OMG! You could get lost in just the techniques section alone! There are tons!  As part of the Creative Crew there, one of my challenges was to use the “Summer Lovin'” theme and use one of the techniques in the tutorials section.  It uses 1 – 12×12 piece of DSP.  The embellishements are totally up to you!  The photo to the right is what the inside looks like.  The Clutch holds 4 note cards with envelopes.  It could hold more but I didn’t want to “damage” the clutch before I got pics of it.

The entire collection is made with Natually Eclectic Suite.  Oh So Eclectic Clear-Mount Bundle and Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper are what I mostly used.  I added a few embellishments outside the suite…. Coz… I just had to!

Here is a few pictures of the cards that I created:

 

Going to Craft Fair…

… Tomorrow is the big day!  I am ready!!  I thought I would bring you one of the new goodies I have again this year.  Now, I must warn you that I tend to use a lot of retired items as well as a lot of new items that Stampin’ Up! has to offer.  With that being written, here’s a really fun and quick project!

candyjar2This candy jar is filled with Christmas colors of red and green!  I used the stamp set “Candy Cane Christmas” and punched a 2 1/2 inch circle for the lid.  Emerald Envy and Real Red inks. Emerald Envy ribbon and Wink of Stella glitter pen!  Super cute huh?  I agree!  I hope to sell all of them!

Doherty Craft Fair has been held for years.  I have been apart of this craft fair for the past 8…. wait… let me do the math…. please pause.  Yes, 8 years!  LOL  This is almost always my best fair.  Next year, I am hoping to get involved in a few more.
