Christmas Items for Bazaar

These are some cute little gift boxes I have made for my upcoming Christmas craft shows.  I just filled each with goodies like chocolates, cookie mixes, spatulas, handmade snowman, and a Christmas ornament.  Then decorated them up with ribbons and tags.  Too, cute!

Of course I always have several sizes of altered notebooks, some with gel pens.

I always have my homemade all natural Lip Balm.

I have plenty of cute little candies, too.  These are good to use as stocking stuffers.  Also good to give co-workers, but not very expensive.

There will be more to come, so check back in a few.  Christmas is around the corner and will be here before we know it.

2015 Christmas Card

Getting ready for Christmas by doing by cards while I have time.  I don't like buying boxed cards at the store and paying upwards of $15 for 10 cards so I always make my own.  I have been doing this for several years now.  I always have a lot to make so I try to get started before the season starts.
Note:  I do make and sell cards for $2 each. There are several selections to choose from.  Please get your order in early if you want them for Christmas.

This is fun to do and when you're done you have cute personalized notebooks.  I purchases notebooks and covered them with card stock paper.  Then I added labels, which is optional of course.  I will use them for my Bible Study Fellowship studies.

Pretty in Pink Birthday Cards

Here are two pretty birthday cards for the gals in your life. Girls love pink, dollies, and butterflies. 

Warm Birthday Wishes

Pretty in Pink Birthday

Birthday Baseball Card

Here is a cute birthday card for the man in your life.  It's easy to do. Just cut black card stock 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches and fold in half to make the basic card.  Cut from red patterned card stock a 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece and add to top of card.  For the grass cut 2 x 4 inch green card stock and make slits on one side.  I added green ribbon in the middle, but you could leave that off if you want.  Then for the baseball, I punched out a 2 1/2 inch circle and made the stitching.  To see how to do this check out my Pinterest page. -  I added dimensional to the baseball to make it stand up a little.  I then stamped the birthday sentiment on a scrap of white card stock and mounted it to black card stock and mounted it to the front.  Be sure to add a 4 x 5 inch white card stock to the inside so you can write your birthday message.  Your done!  Wasn't that easy?

Vintage Card

Love this card!  It has a vintage look.  I distress the edges of the brown card, the pink background, the beige background with the stamped flowers and also the sentiment circles.  You can use any flower stamp you wish.  I colored them with pink and green colored pencils.  I added a pink ribbon the the front of the brown card before I added the pink background.  On the pink I punched scalloped edging.  This is very basic, but you could use any stamps, any colors, and any sentiment.  Just use your imagination.  The possibilities are endless.  Have fun!

Still stuck in the house because of the cold temps and lots of snow.  Today the temps are going up so the snow should melt some.  I am still making cards and more cards.  Enjoy.

Thank You Card

I love cards made using black and white.  I made these from coordinating paper.  I added flowers from Michael's.  I printed the sentiments on my PC and used my Big Shot for the borders.    I always add a design on the inside, too.  With these I stamped a small flower and then left it blank so the card can be used for any occasion.  I also always add a cross to the back and a label with my info in case the receiver wants to order future cards from me.
