Arts & Crafts Fair 2011

I guess I will start with the arts & craft fair that we had at the school in December.  Way too late in the year, but it was a good experience.  I didn't sell much, in fact, I think I sold 3 items.  I probably overpriced all my products. I had mostly gift cards, but I also had fleece ponchos and hand crocheted scarves (not real heavy ones, but more decorative ones, since we don't usually need heavy stuff for winter). Speaking of winter, where is it???  We haven't seen it here in Jax yet.

Each inside page has a small card hidden between the pages for more photos or journaling.

I didn't crop these pages, thinking I wouldn't use them and ooooppppssss, there they are.

The piece on the right is actually a card that lifts out

The whole kit and kaboodle

This one is larger than all the rest.  It was the first one I made.  I got the idea from Brenda Frerich's blog. 

I used flower soft for all the white areas .  Later I went and got some Flock at Michael's and used that.

These are tags that I cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge from  CTMH for the Cricut.   They open like a little book and I have a piece of colonial white card stock inside for writing your message.

I have lots more to share, but this is all for this one post.  Sorry about the color, I took these photos the night before the craft fair.  If you have any questions please comment.  It is very disheartening when I post and never get any comments.  That is why I stopped posting for so long.  I am just as guilty though.

Thanks for tuning in.

  1. Love the album and gift tags, very cute! Sorry about the craft fair... December fairs are rarely very profitable!! I seriously doubt it was your prices... unfortunately, by December people are just looking for very specific gifts. The stocking stuffers, cards and bonus items have already been purchased, and even wrapped. LOL... perhaps if you offered gift wrapping service (I might try that myself). Give me a call stranger!
