She invites about 30 crafters to contribute items to be sold at her boutique, and I am number 21! (insert huge smile!)
We all agree to donate 10% of our sales to benefit the Citizens Cemetery, and naturally, we get the opportunity to showcase our hand crafted items! ( And hopefully bring in a little cash~)
I currently have some of my cards for sale at Bucky's_Bean_Bag on historic Whiskey Row (local). Cookie called and said she had bought some of my cards there, and thought they were cute, and well done! I was honored and excited, but it was not until later that I understood the significance of the Brinkmeyer home! Now I am even more honored and excited!
I have been working for days already to prepare for the Boutique (hence the lack of posts this week), which will be November 13-15. Today's post showcases some covered list pads like the ones I have been working on. The other projects I have been crafting will show up on the blog soon!
I bought 5x7 steno pads and had them cut in half at an office supply store for like $1 per cut. They can cut about 10-12 at a time, so it was only a couple dollars to have this done! I then cut my CS at 8 1/4 by 5 1/2. Then scored at 2 5/8 and 2 7/8. Be sure to cover the top part of the pad (as shown below) with some DSP to carry the pretty-ness to the inside. Use a generous amount of Sticky Tape (do you have yours?) and adhere the pad to the cover. Decorate with
co-ordinating DSP, ribbon and inks, and ta-da! Cute cute cute!
Pads like these are going to the boutique as well as some other fun items. Boy, do I have work to do! I have never tried something like this before, so I am curious how it will go.
Tomorrow, October 3rd, is National Card making Day! Make a card (and send it) for someone you love! Use that stampin' stuff girls!
A handmade card in the mail will surely encourage the receiver and brighten their day!
