Craft Fair 2019

Today we are packing up our crafts and getting them ready for the Italian Heritage Craft show this Saturday - doors open at 9AM.  I can't wait!  Here are a few pictures of the last of the projects I have been working on to get ready for the show.  

These advent cubes are the most fun to make!  This one is a  little different since it was made with more glittery paper than I usually use.  But I love how it came out!

I love working on the frames below to create this lighted look!  They would look so
cool on someone's mantel or book shelf!  We will have a bunch of these at the show!

We will also have some wonderful 3D type cards for sale!  The card below is called ( I think) an Easel card with add ons.  It does fold perfectly flat so you can mail it!   The sentiment is on the back. 

Here are some Christmas Loaded Envelopes!  I made a Halloween Loaded Envelope for my Grandson  - but these would make cute Christmas gifts!

The have Christmas pencils, shaker cards, wands and Christmas tags.  You will even find some chocolate in these envelopes!  These Loaded envelope stand up so you can see them much better.  They also have gussets so they can really hold a lot of goodies!

Sorry to have made this post so long.  Here is the last picture!  It is another Loaded Envelope but his one can be given to a loved one!!  It's made with Graphic 45's Love Notes paper.  Can you see the cute musical charms hanging on the front?  It also contains Pencils, a rosette wand and chocolates.  There are some tags that have Love Notes on them too!  

As I said, the Fair is this Saturday at the Italian Heritage Center in Portland!  We will also be doing another Fair the following weekend in Windham!  More to come on that fair!  Have a fabulous day!

Happy Halloween!

I made this Halloween Loaded envelope for my youngest Grandson!  I just love the fall and especially Halloween!  We don't get that many kids treat or treating anymore so I love making stuff for our Grandkids.

I saw the cute idea above on Pinterest.  I don't really want to give him lots of candy so this seem to be a good way to keep the sugar content down.  

The Ghost poop is my favorite!  Love the spongy eyes on the envelope too!

I put gussets on my envelope too so there is enough room to add the bags of goodies!

The hanging skeleton is a nice touch, don't you think? Hope he likes my Halloween treats! I am 
working on making Christmas Loaded envelopes to sell at the craft fairs we are doing the first 2 weekends in November.  I will post those pictures next time!

I thought I would end my post with the card I made for my sister in law.  It's a tuxedo card and it's so easy to make - you can find tutorials all over Pinterest.  The flowers are from Tim Holtz's Wildflower dies.  They are some of my favorite flower dies. 

I arranged my inserts in the center.  I like that the flowers face forward.   The purple ribbon is from Becca Feeken's Spellbinder ribbon die.  

We have started packing up the house for our move.  We won't be moving until the end of November but it is coming up fast!  I haven't started packing my craft room but will have to start soon.  I am not looking for to that job!  I will post pictures too!  Happy Halloweenie!
