Crazy Craft Fair Prep

It has quickly become that time of year again that craft fairs are everywhere.  I love them!  Once again I am participating in the Oak Park craft fair here in town.  It hardly seems possible that in 6 days my mother and I will be setting up our displays and selling our wares.  Until then I will be very busy making cards.

Here are a few that I have made thus far.  I hope you enjoy them!

Time to get back to crafting.  Have a great week!

It's That Time of Year

It is that time of year when things settle down into their old routine.  School, Scouts and crafts around here.  With the arrival of fall I am currently preparing for a craft fair which will be held in November.  I know it might sound like it is a little early but I want to be prepared this year.  I would like to have more diversity in my card offerings than I had last year.  As a bonus my mom will be making knitted scarfs to sell so I am super excited. 

These are some of the ones you can expect to see. 

As you can see I love the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  See how different you can make the card by just using one stamp set? 

I hope to be able to post more of the card that will be available as well as the cards for my upcoming Make and Takes. 

Until then, I hope you enjoy the beginning of fall!

Prep and Ending

I am coming to the end of the prep for the Open House on Saturday.  Tonight I was able to knock out all but one of the cards I want to display.  Yesterday I finished prepping all the Make and Take supplies.  Tomorrow I will work on finishing displays, setting up and last minute things I am sure will come up.

I am so excited.  Here are some sneak peaks, door prizes and display cards. 

I really hope my guests enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them!

Open House

On August 1st ordering from the Seasonal Catalog will start!  I am so excited!  There are tons of great products and ideas.  I decided to have an Open House on the 3rd to display some of the products and samples.  I will also have My Digital Studio up so visitors can see how this great program works hands on.  I will have door prizes, snacks and refreshments. 

So tonight I am busy getting things in order.  I have made several prizes and card samples already.  The Make and Take tag and card are ready.

Father's Day 2013

I have truly been blessed with such a loving and wonderful father.  My husband is a great father who was raised by a great father.  To honor them on Father's Day I made a special card for each. 
 This one I used the Paper Pumpkin kit from March and added the Happy Father's Day sentiment.  It was so easy since the Paper Pumpkin kit is already color coordinated and comes with the stickers.  All I needed to do was stamp and stick. 
I used Blue Ribbon, Clockworks and a stamp in the First kit from Paper Pumpkin.
I used the blocking technique and Delightful Dozen for this card.  
 I couldn't leave it alone so I added some buttons.

This is my precious Patch.  We have had her since she was 2 weeks old and I had to bottle feed her.  She wants to be where ever I am.  I had taken her off my lap so many times that she resorted to here to sleep. 

Happy Father's Day.  I hope you get a chance to enjoy it and stamp!

Happy Birthday Mom!

My mother celebrated her 59th birthday yesterday.  We had a good time visiting with her and gave her a potted flower for her new stand she received from my brother for Mother's Day.  Although she enjoyed the flowers she really liked the card I made for her.  I like the bright yellow with the black and white.  I embossed and fussy cut the bees.  On the one on the flower I attached it to a bit of floral wire I wrapped to give it a springy flying effect.  This was really fun to make. 

It won't be long now before Stampin' Up welcomes a new catalog.  I have seen it and it is WONDERFUL!!! I will be sharing some cards and crafts made using some of the new products.  You are going to LOVE them!  I am so excited.

Happy Anniversary!

Yesterday was my parents 40th Anniversary!  I am so blessed to have a great role model of what love and sacrifice is!  I made them this gift card holder card to help them celebrate.  I have also entered it in the Late Night Stampers Challenge 222.  I hope you all have a very happy Mother's Day!

April Make and Take

I had a great time today stamping and making cards for my April Make and Take.  I taught them how to make two simple 3D flowers and they loved it. 

Next Thursday I will host a Paper Pumpkin Party and all of my customers who have ordered this great product will come and eat, drink and be crafty. 

Below is our dog Max.  He has the cutest tuft of hair we thought that we would try to put in a pony tail.  I am not sure what exactly he looks like but we thought it was super funny.   

Have a great week and find some time to stamp!

We have a great friend of the family who fell ill and was in the hospital for a couple of weeks.  This is the card I made him to lighten his mood.  He loved it.  He showed it to all of his visitors and was impressed that the light was still on right before he was released.

Pinterest + MDS = Project Complete

Are you a fan of Pinterest.  I personally LOVE it.  I have found so much inspiration and helpful tips it is amazing.  I found this cute little saying that I wanted to make for my house.  I knew I would most likely not make it.  I don't usually have time for painting, cutting, pasting... not to mention the time it would take for the paint to dry.
Pin from
Tami Waddell has posted a challenge to her downline to make a home decor item using Stampin' Up product including My Digital Studio!  Immediately I thought of my Pin.  Below is what I entered into the challenge.  I am so happy with it!  Instead of taking days like it would have if I had tried to do the original project it took about an hour.  (To be completely honest it probably would not have taken that long but I am still getting my feet wet with this great program.)

My take using MDS from Stampin' Up
I hope you have a great week and are able to squeeze some time to create!

Combining 2 Great Loves!

I have a great love of animals and work with several different local groups fostering and caring for animals.  I was recently asked to create a Thank You card to give to a generous donor.  Immediately I thought of using MDS (My Digital Studio) to create the card.  MDS is new to me and is now only $19.95.  This is a great way to digitally create cards, scrapbook pages, tags and more.   This is my first run. The dog pictured is one that has been helped through the Excelsior Springs Friends Of Animals or ESFOA.
