Pink Craft Fair Projects

You haven't heard from me much lately because I've been getting stuff made for my spring craft fairs. The first weekend of May was my longest one - 3 days. I didn't get pics of my favorite new item before it sold (forgot in the rush of packing up), so I'll be working on making a duplicate when I get a chance.

We carry "candy tins" in silver & white with an accordian folded white cardstock inside. I tried something "tricky" with the first accordian page and messed it all up - so for the 2nd tin, I cut the accordian pages in 1/2 to share between the 2 tins. Worked out better anyway since once it was embellished, it wouldn't have fit back in the tin.

Because the Bella Flor cardstock is back momentarily (on sale from $19.95 to $10 while supplies last); I decided to make a bunch of things with it to showcase the beauty of the cardstock (and I'm not a pink person).

I'm also working on swaps/trades for TAC's Annual Seminar in June - but won't post those until after I get home (gotta keep the excitement going). I will say I started with red cardstock and built from there - and I love them.

Supplies used: H-109 White candy tin, F-117 Sonia purse, H-104 chipboard clipboard, T-2638 Petal Pack stamp set, T2658 Swirly Gigs stamp set, T-2116 Earth Laughs stamp set, D-437 Assorted Bitty Blossoms, F-516 Crystal Stickles, Assorted TAC hardware including B-114 Lilly Anna, K-100 Crop-A-Dile, A-078 Kissy Fit Big Fab Flowers (plus a green one), D-300 Velvet brads, ribbon from Michael's (shhh).
