My neighborhood craft fair is this weekend. And before you roll your eyes and think, oh a little tiny craft fair...there are 2500 homes in my neighborhood! It will be great to see neighbors both familiar and new.
I'm putting some last minute touches on things and making sure I'm ready. This morning, I packaged up these cute Signs of Santa elf packets. Each holds a small hand sanitizer - perfect for teachers, bank tellers, grocery clerks, postal workers - anyone who comes in contact with the pubic during cold and flu season will appreciate that you thought of them. As you can see, I've used the Tags and Tidings bundle for the gift tags. I love that one stamp and die made light work of creating 16 tags. I was done in no time flat!
If you're in the area, come by and see me at the Briar Chapel Fall Market, happening from 11-2 in the Clubhouse. Mention my blog and you can pick a free card!
No time to type! I'm busy, busy, busy getting ready for this Craft fair. But, stay tuned for Saturday's Crafty Saturday Facebook Live where I'll show you how to make this hand sanitizer packet, plus a few more gift packaging ideas!
Upcoming Events - Registration Closes Early this Month
It's still be hot and humid here in the South. And my sister has sent me pictures of thermometers in the triple digits in Southern California. But I'm dreaming of hoodies, sitting by the fire in my cozy slippers, and sipping hot cocoa. And craft fairs! I don't have time to sip hot cocoa! I have to get ready for fall craft fairs.
I'd see similar designs of this hot cocoa packet floating around on Pinterest and decided to try it out myself. I even found some candy canes that I squirreled away in a cool, dry place from last winter. Too cute! I can hardly wait to make more in different colors and patterns. These will be a fun addition to my booth!
How is this even possible???
Have you seen what the special offers are this week?
I was pretty shocked when I saw these this morning. Project Life makes photo organizing and memory keeping a SNAP! All you need is a box of cards, the accessory pack, some pocket page protectors, and a journal. No more worries about losing your phone and all your photos. They're all in one place, preserved for everyone to see. What a wonderful living heirloom for your family!
Not into memory keeping? I love to use Project Life cards to make cards!!! The preprinted designs make card making quick, simple, and WOW! Are the gorgeous!
Not convinced??? Check out these LOVELY Project Life decor items, from Joyce Fowler, a member of Stampin' Up!'s Artisan Design Team 2015–2016:
Needs some more idea? Contact me to set up a private workshop on using Stampin' Up!'s Project Life cards and accessories with your family and friends. I'd love to show you how to incorporate these beautiful cards into your crafting repertoire.
In the midst of Christmas cards and gift wrap, I've been taking custom orders for teacher gifts, too. As a former teacher, I loved gifts that came from the heart. And I always kept a pack of good stationery in my desk so I could write notes home. I loved writing notes to parents when their children had been especially kind, courteous, or had really tried hard in class. And as a parent, I appreciate those teachers who try hard to catch kids being good, not just watching for bad behavior.
I used the Box-Bag tutorial from fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Kirsteen Gill. I love how how well it showcases the English Garden designer series paper. Each bag holds 8 cards and envelopes and is much easier to make than it looks.
I hope these teachers enjoy their pretty cards. I know I would have!
