I have been so lazy keeping up with my blog. Sorry it has been since June . No excuses ...just have been so busy with having some fun this summer. Now it is over and kids are back to school.
My sisters and I are going to do two more fairs this fall and winter, so we are getting ready for these events now.
|Christmas note cards|
The note cards you see in the picture are mini cards. I bought the mini pizza boxes from Stampin Up. I decorated them with designer paper and a bow. I used stamps from Penny Black, in this picture, to make some cute little thank you notes or tags for your gifts. We are planning on selling them at the fairs.
|No sew fabric ornament|
We are also making the no sew fabric ornaments that you see in the picture. I used jelly roll fabric that is 2 1/2 inches wide. You cut the fabric into 2 1/2 squares. The gal in this video does a great job explaining the directions. She wants you to buy Jingle Pops by Hoffman, but they are expensive. I just went to JoAnn's and bought their jelly rolls which were much cheaper. Here is the video:No Sew Fabric Ornament Tutorial
It is on Pinterest.
|A Framed Sampler|
Another project I finished was my Framed Sampler. I used my Stampin Up succulent dies. I have a board on Pinterest where I have saved so many examples that help me create my ideas. It is my inspiration. I like the white frame cause it really helps the squares pop.
|Marianne Designs Mice|
These mice are too cute. I bought the Christmas accessories that go with them and the winter clothes. I will post what they look like all dressed up and ready for Christmas.
I hope to do some projects using them to sell at the fair. Who does not like cute mice??
This is a birthday card I made for my sister, Adrianne. Her birthday is in July. I got it to her late but I got it to her. I love these Stampin Up pandas. Too cute. I will be using these pandas on projects for the fairs. Not sure what I will do but it could be cards like this one. I liked it that much.
The tiles that you can get at Home Depot are perfect for making coasters. I used designer paper and glued them on with Mod Podge. Once dry I sprayed them with an acrylic sealer. You should do two or three coats. I put cork squares on the back that I bought from an Etsy store for 10.00 for 30 squares with adhesive backing. I thought that was pretty reasonable.
My sisters and I have made more with different types of paper and we also are stampin them, too.
