I'm getting ready for the Santa's Arts and Crafts Village craft fair this Saturday. It is at Warrenton United Methodist church from 9am to 3pm. There are so beautiful crafters that come every year so I hope you come check it out. Here are two framed projects I will be selling. The Peace Joy Love Cheer image is actually a Big Shot die and I used the beautiful Ski Slope paper with it. The second frame is using the Season of Friendship stamp set which I am in love with! This is actually a birthday present for a dear friend of mine and I thought it might go over well at the craft fair too! Off to make a few more of each of these. I'll post more as I make them!

I hope everyone had a nice Halloween! I wanted to share some recent projects with you. We did this really cute ornament card at a workshop this weekend and will make it at my Stampers Ten clubs this month. I was so excited when I found this sample - I couldn't wait to make it and show everyone! It uses one of my favorite new accessories, felt flurries (I live the felt flowers too) as well as rhinestone brads. I think it turned out well. The circle is attached at once side so that it will open up like a card. You could also punch a hole at the top with ribbon and include a photo for cute homemade ornaments.
The other samples are using die cuts from the new Big Shot Sizzix, which I love. It is so easy to use and easy to carry around to wherever I need to use it or show it. The pillow box makes for a cute gift card holder (as long as it's one of the smaller gift cards) or a treat box. The top note die I've used with cards and then with this little "Get Well" book we made at one of my Stampers Ten clubs. A friend of theirs has not been feeling well so we put our stamps to good use! It is put together with a large flower brad so you can swivel and see all the get well messages. This is a great heartfelt gift for anyone! You have to come try out my Sizzix - it's super easy and such a great crafting tool!
