One of my goals this week was to make some of those adorable pins that I have seen on Carri's and Sheryl's site. I finally made a couple today. Once I figured out which straight pins to use, choosing the colors to coordinate with the paper was easy. Carri suggested using Glossy Accent. Since I didn't have any I used my daughter's Mod Podge glue which worked great.
I had to make two Bridal Shower cards for the school secretary. Here is what I created.
My Mind's Eye paper ~ the spider's web
Sweethearts cartridge ~ lingerie p. 69 ~ 3"
Wild Card cartridge ~ sentiment p.79
Sizzix embossing folder
straight pin and beads
heidi grace designs paper ~ Floral with Definitions
stick pins and beads
I head back to school tomorrow, but plan on working on cards each evening when I get home. There is a craft show on Saturday that I may be able to participate in. I am going to talk to the contact person tomorrow. The fee is either $20 or $25. The space is 10' X 10', but you have to supply your own table.
Does anyone know if this is reasonable? How many cards would be ideal to bring? Should they be separated by theme? How much would you charge? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
I went to the flea market this morning and found some 5" x 7" plastic bags to protect the cards. The fee was very reasonable...$1.50 for 50 bags with no S/H. When I went on-line last night I found some for $5, but the S/H was over $10. THAT'S CRAZY!
I sure do like how they are enclosed.
