I am having a card class this Friday and will be offering an incentive for a $50 purchase, as if you need more of an incentive than Sale-A-Bration! I came up with this nugget tin, and I think it turned out pretty cute. I am also including one of the cards that we will be doing at the class. I will come back later to add the product details, but they are all Stampin' Up!
Here are the treats that I made for my kids friends, classmates, teachers and principal. Everyone loved the little test tubes filled with orange NERDS. Each of the glassine bags were filled with a test tube treat, ghost eraser, bat ring and pencil. Sorry the pictures are a little blurry, they are from my phone.
Craft fair stuff has kind of taken over my life, at least my crafting life. I have been saving (hoarding) these baby food jars for about three years, so it was about time to put them to use. These FOE (Fold Over Elastic) hair ties are super popular right now, so I bought some of the elastic and made a bunch of the hair ties myself. I made the hair ties, painted the lids to the baby food jars and voila!... a great little craft fair item. I am still trying to decide if the jar needs a tag, not sure it does. Each jar has a variety of 10 hair ties. I am planning on selling the jar with the 10 hair ties for $7. What do you think? Would you pay that? I hope some people will.
This is the project that my Stamp Club members did for their 3D item in July. It is a cello bag that has been decorated and then filled with decorated clothespins. You can either leave the clips as just clips or add a small magnet to the back to make them clips for the fridge. I ordered some really inexpensive magnets from China, and all of my club members opted to add magnets to theirs. It was a big hit with my group.
I am looking for one more member of my club, so if you are local to the Ventura County area and want to join, please contact me! Stamp Club is a great way to make some free projects just for ordering your minimum ($25). My club meets once every other month, so it's only a $150 commitment for the year. Plus, you get the hostess benefits on the month that you host, which will be at least $25 in free merchandise. Again, just contact me if you'd like to join or if you have any questions.
All supplies are Stampin' Up! except for the bag and magnets:

This is the final card that I made for my card class this past Friday. I cut 1/2 inch strips of the Polka Dot Parade DSP, lined them up in a rainbow and adhered them to a piece of Whisper White CS that I had run through my Big Shot with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder. I popped up the embossed paper with Dimensionals, but it's hard to tell in this picture.

Stamp Sets: Memorable Moments Papers: Whisper White Cardstock and Polka Dot Parade DSP Ink: Rich Razzleberry Accessories: Stampin'Dimensionals, White Bakers Twine and Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder
Here is the card that I came up with for the Shoebox Swap that I did with the group that I traveled with to Convention this year. I was inspired by a card that I saw on Splitcoast, you can see it here. You can definitely see the source of inspiration, but I put my own spin on it. It's what I like to call a CWAT (Copy With A Twist). This is also going to be one of the cards that we do at my card class tomorrow night.
All supplies are Stampin' Up!:

My friend (and upline) Heidi King adds a small gift to her customer/club orders, many of which I have been the recipient of. I wanted to start to do it for the orders that I receive, so it was perfect that she has challenged her downline to do the same. I came up with these small treats for the girls in my stamp club this month. There are three Hershey Nuggets in each bag. I recently opened this pack of Polka Dot Parade DSP and I LOVE it! The stamp set is a retired one called "Eat Chocolate".
I hope they like them as much as I do. Have a great day!
