Successful Spring Fair!

This past weekend was our first Craft Fair and my sisters and I had a ball doing it!  We me the nicest people!! The comments we received from customers were fantastic!!  We also had the nicest neighbors too!  One lady was selling handmade dog collars which were unique and so cute and the other lady makes customized bracelets, just beautiful!!  It was so much fun!!  Thank you to all that came out to our first fair!  We sold cards for Mother and Father's day!  In fact, one lady said it is the first time she bought a Father's Day card this early!!  Hilarious!!  Closer look at things we sold at the Spring Fair!!

Sister's Birthday!

Graphic 45 Couture

Accordion Card

Happy Birthday Sis!
Love this Accordion type card because it has a lot of space for decorating and sentiments for a birthday card!  The paper collection called Couture from Graphic 45 is perfect for a sister's birthday!!  I made a belly band for the closure rather than a ribbon for this card.  Such a fun card to make!

This Centerfold card is for my brother-in-law's birthday. He is an avid golfer and this was a fun card to make for him especially since it is time for golfers to get outside on the greens.

Found this sentiment on Pinterest and it worked perfect with this card. Happy Birthday Lenny!!

Spring Birthdays

Birthday Card in a Box

Back of the card
My friend's birthday was last month but since we were away, we celebrated it this past weekend.  She loved her card in the box!  I used SU Designer paper and stamp set called "Jar of Love"!  Nothing like getting a box full of flowers!!  Happy Birthday Lynne!

Birthday Castle!

A little party inside the Castle

Back of the card
Love making these Z fold cards!  Perfect for another friend whose birthday was last week.  She always calls herself the "Queen" and why not so this was a perfect card for her!  I used multiple stamps from Stampin up balloons, Julia Nutting doll, Elizabeth Craft castle,  MFT dragon and Sizzix's clouds.  Happy Birthday Anna!

Both of these types of cards were so much fun to make, Z fold and card in the box!  I have been making them for quite a while now and still amazes me that they fold up and can be mailed! Thanks for stopping by!

Disney Birthday!

I have the most fun making these explosion boxes for friends!  This one was the most fun because it is for a very good friend who loves Disney and Donald Duck! We finally celebrated her birthday last week (her birthday was in February) because we all have been traveling and was able to get together for lunch.  The paper is from Simple Stories and is just perfect for a Disney album or card!  I made a shaker star for the top of the box---the pictures below show the sides and, most importantly, inside!!

Donald Duck surprises Cindy on the inside of her explosion box!  How cool!!  I made a little platform for Donald to stand on.  Just love this!!

Happy Birthday Cindy!!
We had fun celebrating with Cindy! She is so easy to buy and make things because she loves Disney and Pink!! So guess which one is Cindy!! Love you Cindy!
