Playing Catch Up

I'm finally posting the last of my craft show projects! I will not have access to the Christmas stamp sets I've been using after next weekend, so if you want anything Christmas, let me know now!

This one is my absolute favorite card out of them all:

Mmmm, I love fall!

This is a framed piece. I love it and since it didn't sell I may keep it for myself! Haha! Just kidding. It is still available if you want it....
And just a couple baby cards:

Now it's time to catch up on my scrapbooking!
Happy crafting!

I survived my first craft show! I didn't sell a whole lot of things but I did get a handful of orders and potential customers. So I'm glad I did it, and I'm looking forward to making some projects here soon. I forgot my camera, but I did get some pictures on my phone. I will post them as soon as I can figure out how to get them off my phone. :)

After I finish these projects for my new customers, my big goal is to develop a lot of pictures and get caught up on my scrapbooking. Poor Caleb hasn't even been thought of yet in our scrapbook! So I hope that I'll be able to catch up real soon.

I just realized, too that I still have a few pictures of cards and other things that I didn't get to post yet, so I'll get those up here soon. So even though my posts may not come quite as often as they did before the craft show, please come back because I always find time to squeeze in a project.

Happy crafting!

Mini Notebooks And An Altoid Tin

Tiny little composition notebooks! They are so cute! This one is my favorite out of the four, but the paper got wrinkled on the back so I guess I'll have to keep this one for myself. :)

Here are the ones I'm selling:

Then I altered an Altoid tin. I wasn't really sure what to do with it when I started, but I think it turned out pretty cute.

Happy crafting!

Crafty Christmas

I was finally able to get a few more Christmas cards done last week. I haven't been able to get in my craft room as much as I'd like to lately. But I'm working on it. Here's what I have come up with since last week. An adorable snowman!!

A wreath made from snowflakes:

I decided to make 5 of this next one, so it will be sold as a set:

Happy crafting!

October Birthdays

I've been dying to use this Snoopy stamp for my mom! So here's the card I came up with for her birthday. So...fall-y!
This colorful card was one that I had hiding in my stash for a long time. I modified it a little and we gave it to Laura Anne's friend for her birthday:
More Christmas cards to come!

Craft Show!

I made this card for my father-in-law's birthday last weekend. It took me ten minutes.
Then I thought, "that was easy. I'll make another for the craft show!" So I made a variation of the same card:

And here is your announcement folks! The craft show will be:
In case you can't read the wrinkly flyer I took a picture of, the craft festival will be at Mandarin United Methodist Church on San Jose Boulevard in Jacksonville, Florida!! Please, please come out and say hello!!

Happy crafting!

I decided after making the doily card in the previous post, that I wanted to used that stamp set (Merci) to make a set of cards. I used the same color theme of Stampin' Up! paper: Regal Rose, Certainly Celery and So Saffron.

These came together so quickly and I am really getting excited for the craft show!
Happy crafting!

The Latest

All the following projects are for the craft show coming up in less than a month!!
This frame was just a plain black frame. Nothing exciting about it. I thought about adding color, then I changed my mind because I had the idea to use white and make it elegant. I used some Stampin' Up! rub-ons. It would be great for a wedding photo.
This is a quick card I put together. I loved how feminine these little doilies make a card look!
Christmas in the country!
Simple with silver:

It's Beginning To Look Alot Like Christmas!

I know, I know. That's so original. It's true, though! But before we get to that, here are a couple of projects I've worked on for the craft show. (Which, by the way, I found out is October 17. More details on that soon.)

First, here's a card I created using "A Tree For All Seasons" stamp set. I love, LOVE the stamp set! It is just so cute and I love using it.

For this simple and quick project, I used a Stampin' Up! rub-on. I love rub-ons. :) This is just a cute little jar that you can use to put little candies in and give as a gift, or you can store small craft items like brads or buttons. It sure looks cuter than a plain, naked glass jar!

I love notebooks. Always have. But spend a little time with one and give it some tender loving care and voila! They go from drab to fab!

Now for the Christmas stuff. :) It's the most wonderful time of the year!!! I decided (with the help of my mom) I need to have a good selection of Christmas cards/crafts available at the craft show seeing as how it's so close to December.

This first card I created around the bow. I was just playing around with ribbon and decided to make a bow and here's what I ended up with:
I love this next one. I love it so much I decided to make 4 identical cards to sell as a set. It just makes me want to go make a mug of hot chocolate and curl up on the couch with my sweetie to admire the twinkling lights on the Christmas tree. :)
Here's the "Tree For All Seasons" again:
Such a romantic wreath, right?! I got the idea for the wreath from Splitcoast, but the card design is mine.
There you have it! That's what I've been working on for the past few weeks in between all the birthday celebrations. :)

Happy crafting!
