Sorry that I have been missing in awhile. The summer months were hard for me to stay focused. I planning on giving this another try. I love to share my creations with all of you and get any input. I have a craft show coming up in December that I will be busy creating for. Please visit in the near future to see all the fun new creations.

With Easter just a few days away I decided to make a Easter card.
This card is super cute and very easy to make. The card is embossed with a wood grain texture then I brushed a dark brown over the raised texture. I used the Sizzex Framelits Circle to cut the hole and the body of the bunny with the 1-5/8" hole. I then used Cricut Accent essentials for the feet, base of the tail and the flowers. I then attached a piece of cotton ball for a tail and some small flower rhinestones to the centers of the flowers. If I had more time I probably would have made the bunny face on the inside of the card.

I did a craft fair earlier in the month and wanted to share some pictures.
I loved how the display was set up. The wood piece in the background is a cabinet door that I found at resale shop. My husband then put the baskets from a shelving store on to hold my cards. He also attached legs to the back that are anchored with a chain. It worked out very well.
I had clear plastic picture holders for my prices. The basket is holding some Christmas gift tags that I was also selling. I might have to revisit how to display these better or maybe sell them in packages
In the basket and in the picture box on this side I had cards for all occasions. The decorated smaller boxes I created are calendar card reminders. I got a lot of good comments on them but no buyers.
I think I did pretty goo for my first craft fair. I made 3x my both fee which is good since my prices of thins sold was only $3 to $1. I hope to try to incorporate more height in my next show to try to draw more people in.

I was looking for new way to give a gift card and saw this box. You can find the tutorial here. I really like the idea of being able to add a some candy along with gift card. The snowflake tag was cut out using Spellbinders Ironwork Motifs. The ribbon that raps the box keeps it closed.
I haven't decided if I want to stamp a message on the inside but there is always that possibility,

A quick Christmas Tag this week.
This was a free cut in Cricut Craft Room the week of 11/4. I could easily be replicated using Accent Essentials or any other cartridge that has a basic circle and star pattern. There are 4 layers if you count the star. The yellow star is 3/8" wide. The green is 2 1/2"-x-3 1/2". I used a red that was cut at 2 3/8"-x-3 3/8". The backing is an ivory card stock that is cut at 2 5/8"-x-3 5/8". This framed the front nicely and then on the back I stamped To: & From:. I used a rustic twine for the tie string.
