It’s that time of year again and in a few short weeks I will be holding a stall at the Christmas in the Country Craft Show again here in Gatton. There are the most gorgeous handmade goodies you have ever seen at this event and is well worth the trip. I buy a lot of my Christmas presents here. There is always something new and exciting every year to look at and buy. Some absolutely talented crafters in every medium have their best work for sale and it is also the amin fundraising event for my kid’s school.
I thought I would share with you all today a sneak peek at what I will have there at my stall. And I mean a sneak peek. It is nowhere near what I will have on offer that day.
First up Bookmarks.
These little cuties were in our last Stampin’ Up! Impressions Magazine. They are so simple to create and I made a heap of them. Here are my two faves so far
I am loving the monster one. They couldn’t all be girl based, I had to have some for boys you know, and I am currently working on a design for the older boys. Great Christmas gifts for teachers and dads.
Next I have some new embellishment packs designed with the Builder Owl punch
Some super cute reindeer’s with Santa and the next one I think is my favourite
Some super adorable monster embellishments. Use these on your cards or scrapbook LO’s. I am also working on some other designs I will let you know how I go.
The next lot of creations were lots of fun to make. I have seen these fabulous top note box creations getting around for quite a while. I found lots of Inspiration form two sites in particular for these. Gretchen Barron and Tammy Beaver are both very clever and actually have tutorials to sell and some are even free. You must check them out. They are both super talented, and I am totally in love with Tammy’s bunny! LOL!
The Christmas ones
How suoer cute are they?!
Next the Easter ones
Adorable aren’t they?
I have also made one Halloween one for now but I have plans for more so keep your eye out.
I have heaps more to do like put handles on them and I am currently on the look out for some plain dark coloured wire to use. Anyone have suggestions?
I have also been doing some more altered frames which are super cute if I say so myself! LOL! I will show you them soon too.
I best get back to it, I have a little helper here today with Tonsillitis so I better make the best of it! HAHA!
The plan for the weekend was to participate in as many challenges I could………I FAILED miserably! I completed one, and that took me allllll day. I finished it last night around 10.30pm. I am so not in the zone and I am hating it. But I like this card. At first I was “ahhh, okay this one is so,so”, but when I woke this morning with a fresh perspective, I didn’t mind it at all!
So this is Just Add Ink’s challenge this week
Verrrry nice hey?! You should give it a try!
Here is my submission
I will say when the card is front on you can see the whole sentiment. I didn’t see that I was chopping it off when I was taking its glamour shot. LOL! So what do you think of the two totally different stamp sets, the stamps that are in the ”never thought of putting those two together” category. I think they look pretty good together. The big flower fits beautifully in the middle of the medallion. The colouring however will not be mentioned! LOL! I had a couple of boo boo’s! It’s all practice I say!
Anyway seeing as the kids are having a Pupil Free Day today (found that out the hard way, mind you I have never seen three kids sink so far down in the car seats before….LMAO!!), I am going to participate in some more challenges!
