CRAFT FAIRS PART 4 – NOTE CARDS!

We have come to the last in my series of Craft Fairs now.  Today I am going to share with you the cards I made to sell.  You have to have cards to sell now don’t you????  Time was limited so I couldn’t spend too much time on them.  I had a number of Christmas cards from past classes so they were fine but I wanted some Different Occasions cards. I ordered a couple of packs of Notecards and Envelopes.  With only 5 days to go from when I received the order I knew they needed to be simple and quick so I kept them to one layer cards.  Well, I managed to create 40 cards in under 3 hours.  Here they are.  I have added full-size images so you can see them clearly.

I used the Butterfly Bigz die to cut some Butterflies from DSP.  Some I added some Pearls but others I just kept plain.  I added a sentiment with Black Staz On.  (I use Black Stazon as I find it stamps better than the Basic Black inkpad).

Using DSP I punched out some birds with the 2-step Bird Punch and added a sentiment at the bottom again.

I created some simple cards with ‘Timeless Talk’ and various sentiments.

I went all out with colour on these ones.  Here I have used the set ‘World Treasures’.  I inked up Peacock in Daffodil Delight and then sponged randomly with Pumpkin Pie and Tempting Turquoise. Each one of these turned out differently.  It’s funny how you got various colours when they mixed together.  You know what they say: Blue and Yellow make green!! These were my favourite cards.

So there you are.  What has been your favourite project that I have showed you this week??  Maybe there are some great ideas for your next fair/market or even as gifts for a special occasion.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing them.  I am glad I have finally got to share them.  If you are after more ideas check this post out that I did some time ago for another fete/fair that I went to.

Now I can go back to sharing some projects I have been making with products from the new catalogues coming out NEXT WEEK!! I am so excited for these.

Come back and visit me soon,

CRAFT FAIRS PART 2 – GIFT IDEAS!

In today’s post  on Craft Fairs I thought I would show you some Gift Ideas that I made to sell.

Firstly, some little notebooks.  I found these at a local discount shop.  I was going to cover them but time was running out.  I think this was one week out to the Craft Fair! The notebooks had a plastic type plain cover so I decided just to stamp directly on them.  They are not as exciting as I could have done BUT ……

I used Black Staz On and stamped images from ‘Timeless Talk’.  They were simple but cute!

Next I made some Whiteboard Frames.  Another idea from my Internet travels.

For these, I just grabbed some photo frames and you can use whiteboard markers to write directly on the glass.  For the insert inside I used different pieces of DSP that I had.  I created the heading using MDS and printed this on Whisper White card.  I added a trim from card punched with the Scallop Border punch.  I cut some butterflies using the Butterfly Bigz die and and Beautiful Wings Embosslits and adhered them to the front.  They make really nice gifts in no time.

Some more projects tomorrow so come back and visit.

SOMETHING DIFFERENT – HOW ABOUT CRAFT FAIRS!!

I have been wanting to share these projects with you for a couple of months now but with all the busyness of Christmas they were just put aside.  So, before we get right in to Sale-A-Bration and sharing any more from the new Occasions Catalogue coming out I thought I should show you these NOW!!  At the end of October last year I had a stall at the local craft fair here.  I only had 2 weeks to get organised but I made a number of different projects to sell. I know that when I do craft fairs I go searching for ideas on the internet and I am sure you do the same too if you do markets or fairs. These projects are nothing startling but I thought I might share them with you if it might help you with ideas.  I will share these ideas through a number of posts this week.

Firstly, since it was leading up to Christmas I created some little Christmas treat boxes.

I found this idea on Pinterest.  This is using the Milk Carton Die.  I cut 3 of them – 2 in Gumball Green and one in Cherry Cobbler.  I wrapped Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain ribbon around the 3 and added some mini clothes pegs to seal them.  On the front of the boxes I added scallop circles punched from retired Christmas paper and cut ‘JOY’ from silver Glimmer paper.

Another quick project was some Mini purses using the Petite Purse die.  I used some retired DSP and added some simple embellishments on the front.  Inside I added a few chocolate treats.

I have some more projects to share with you tomorrow so stop by again to check them out.
