Fox Cloze Pinnie

This is another Cloze Pinnie I made for my fall craft shows.  This one used the fox die from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The stamps are all retired TAC and the background is a Spellbinders die which is older.  I really love these new animal die cuts by Karen Burniston ... they are so cute.

Stop in to see me this Saturday at St Pasquale's from 9-4 on Wilson Mills Road.  The weather is suppose to be a lot better this weekend.

Bear Cloze Pinnie

 Can it get any colder???  I know we did not get as much snow as was expected but it was still way too much for me.  I am done with winter can we go on to Spring now???  I have been in the house for a few days now working to get restocked for my last two shows.  It is a great way to spend snowy cold days!!  Here is one of my new Gift Cloze Pinnies.  The idea for these is you can give it as a gift with a gift card, money or check in the envelope with you own personal note on the card OR you can use the clothes pin to close a gift bag with a gift inside and drop the note card with the envelope inside as a card encloser.  The clothes pin can be used to clip snacks etc closed or put on the refrigerator, locker, metal door etc. (it has a magnet on the back) to hold a recipe, photo, note, list etc or used as a paper clip on papers.  Great for a small gift for a friend, co-worker etc.  The bear is a die cut from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

My show this Saturday is the biggest all year at St. Pasquale's on Wilson Mills Road from 9-4 with a $2 admission fee.  Hope to see lots of you there!  I have made up a few new items for this show too.

Candy Cane Christmas

Candy Cane Christmas is another card we will be making in my Nov Mojo Class.  It looks so much better in real life.  The candy cane is a stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs and is stamped on watercolor paper.  I used Distress markers to color with the clear Wink of Stella.  It makes the candy cane look all glittery.  This is a great new technique I will be teaching so be sure to bring your clear Wink with you to class.

Please let me know if you plan on attending class this week as soon as possible.  Thanks!

Nov Mojo Time!!!

 Yes it is time for Mojo Class again!!  Please let me know if you are coming as soon as possible since this is my busiest time of the year and I need to get prep done.  We will be focusing on Christmas for Nov mojo class with four Christmas cards and one gift card holder with envelope.  That is what I have photos of today.  Is measures finished in envelope 3 1/4" x 4 3/4" and as you can see in the second photo it looks like a gift when you present it.  The cover is made with all dies from My Favorite Things.  Love love love that  snowflake die cut!!  It is so beautiful no matter what paper I use to die cut it from.  The inside of the card is shown below.  It has a place for you to write your message and a place to add a gift card.  I love the new die cut from My Favorite things that has the dies to add the slips for gift cards in both directions.  It makes these so easy to make since they are both in one piece so you do not have to measure the distance between the slips before you die cut.

I have started up my Etsy store again to see what I can sell on it so check it out if you are not local.  I will be adding more and more to it this week and next so check back often.

This weekend I will be at the Gift of the Magi Craft Show at St Mark's Lutheran Church in Chesterland on Friday night from 7-9:30 and then on Saturday from 9-4.  Come check it out!

Here are a few more covered Candy bars I made for Craft shows this fall.  The penguin and owl die is from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The cross and greens dies are from Our Daily Bread Designs.  The ovals and snowflake dies are from My Favorite Things Designs.  I make these with a ribbon around them so you can slip in a tip, money, check or gift card for a larger Christmas gift if you like.  I also have slipped a small gift card on the back so you can write a few of your own words.  These are a big seller and I have quite a few different styles.  Last show I had people ask me to have some thank you and inspirational ones made to go along with the Christmas ones.

Friday from 7-9:30 Nov 7 and Saturday Nov 8 from 9-4 I will be in Chesterland (RT #306) at St Mark's Gift of the Magi show.  Friday night admissions is $5 and it will be a wine and cheese night for adults only.  This is my first time at this show and I am looking forward to it.  Stop in and check it out and say 'hi'!

Snowman Card in a box

This is a snow and snowman card in a box using a snowflake punch on light weight silver paper, a snowman die cut from Elizabeth Craft Designs and metallic blue swirls from two different dies from My Favorite Things. The larger white snowflakes are from Our Daily Bread Designs as are the words in the front.  The other words on this card are retired TAC stamps.  I think I made four of these for my craft shows.
