One down, 29 to go.

Craft fair season can be a very long process.  I have been diligently working since what, late August, trying to get ready.  Here is a cute project that I didn’t design but CASE’d.  It’s super simple (except when you are making 30 of them to start).  A few punches, scrap paper, ribbon, and pretzel bags.  One thing I love about craft fairs is getting rid of a LOT of scrap paper!!  I also used some retired stamp sets, paper and punches.  Each scallop circle punch is covering a peppermint patty (sorry Lorinda, they are fresh!).  Word of caution:  The hardest part of this project is getting the mints into the bag!  They fit a little too perfectly and it’s a pain to get them in the bag!

Retired Product used:  Punch Pals Stamp Set, Bashful Blue Paper (can easily substitute Soft Sky 8 1/2 x 11 Card Stock), Bashful Blue 1/4″ Grosgrain Ribbon, Bashful Blue Ink Pad (you can easily substitute Soft Sky Ink Pad) and the small Tag Punch.

Clean&Simple 257

My name is Christy Schroeger and I am a cleanandsimplestamping.blogspot.com junkie.    I admit it!  Every time I see a layout, I have to do it.  It’s a compulsion!  When I saw layout 257, I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do.  My love of butterflies only made this card EASY for me.  With the stamp set and punch bundled until the end of the month, it was just a no-brainer! *grins*  I saw this layout a week ago.  I have been itching to make this card because I had it all worked out in my head!  But with the other responsibilities of life, I had to put this on hold.

Punch Happy

As I continue to make crafts, I realize that this doesn’t help my blogging!  I get so caught up in making 50 of one thing that I forget to post to inspire you!  I started at 8:30 AM this morning and didn’t realize it was 11 AM until I got a phone call! Yikes! Now it’s 3 pm?? Where did this day go??

Anyway, these were a big hit last year.   I didn’t make many of them as I wanted to see if they would sell.   Luckily, I saved one little elf face so I remembered how to do this!  Phew!  This year, I am adding a snowman.  I love his crooked little smile!!

These Tic Tac holders were made with some retired product.  The Two Tags Die for the Big Shot is one of them! I still can’t believe that this die is gone but luckily, I can still use it for craft fairs.  My fabulous upline created a video for these adorable little treats.  I just followed that!  The ribbon and googly eyes are also retired.  But everything else is current (I think… 🙂 Oh, the elf feet and hat are done with Lucky Limeade paper)
