Hudson Falls Craft Fair/Vendor Event Success!

craft fair hf

 

This was my set up Saturday, we were in an awesome room in the American Legion in Hudson Falls. I had 2 eight foot tables for my space and got to know the vendors around me, they were so sweet, it was an awesome event!

This is the raffle basket I did in my booth, and the winner was Betty Alexander, it was so funny I was trying to call her, little did I know she was still in the Legion’s lounge, but by the time she got my message she had to come back and get her prize. Congratulations Betty!

The cards were also a big hit, I do need to remember to bring more sentiments for the inside of the cards. Several men commented that “there’s too much white space, I don’t want to write that much”… I had a good chuckle, mental note- bring more phrases to insert in the cards for the next event.

I have two more Vendor Events this month. Both are fundraisers for causes that are near and dear to my heart.

**On Saturday April 19th I will be at the Relay for Life fundraiser at the Holiday Inn in Saratoga Springs. As a cancer survivor, I am proud to help raise funds for this event.

**On Thursday April 26th from 5-8 pm at Miranda Real Estate Group on Altamont Avenue in Rotterdam, I will have a booth and this is a fundraiser for the Albany Medical Center’s Children’s Hospital. Come out and help support two wonderful causes.

Please share with your friends and family! I will be doing more give-aways too!

Thanks for reading my blog, have a great day!

Retro Fresh Designer Journaling Tags

Well hello there friends! I sure have missed blogging and sharing Stampin’ Up! with all of you wonderful readers! Last weekend was a fun Girl Scout weekend- we took our troop to the Boston Museum of Science for an overnight trip. What an awesome program and great time we all had. I have been going non-stop ever since with functions/meetings every night… there just aren’t enough hours in the day.

I wanted to share something with you that you might not have noticed in the new Occasions mini catalog, our awesome Retro Fresh Designer Journaling Tags, look at how versatile they are:

I won a pack of these journaling cards at our January Inketts meeting and loved these ideas from the wonderful concept artists at Stampin’ Up! Here are a few projects to give you some ideas for all that you can do with these awesome cards! Thanks Arika B. for your inspiration!

For this birthday card just cut out the happy birthday from the 3″ x 4″ card. For the card base you add a watercolor wash to the background and some splattering. This is so simple and quick to make and I love how it turned out. QUICK TIP: Did you know that the Shimmery White 8-1/2″ x 11″ Cardstock is perfect for watercoloring? Going on my next order, let me know if you want some too.

Look at this fun confetti pocket on this card using a Window Sheet and the Retro Fresh This and That Designer Washi Tape. I love that washi tape! (Still using mine from Diva Day).

For the confetti use our awesome Fringe Scissors to cut the cardstock horizontally and vertically. It is such a quick way to get a ton of confetti. I’m just sorry to say that the fringe scissors are on backorder until the end of the month. Drats.

For this congratulations gift bag, just cut the 3″ x 3″ card using the Circles Collection Framelits Dies and add some flags to the bottom using Crushed Curry Cardstock. Then run a stripe of washi tape along the top of the bag. Simple as that . . . so quick and easy!
