More Creations for the Bazaar

Hello Everyone,
This must be some sort of record for me, posting three times within one or two weeks. I think some of that is cause with making items for the bazaar is getting me in the crafting mood plus with having kicked this cold to the curb helps. So these were very popular last year for the bazaar and was always a hit when I would send them to the girls classes. So most demonstrators either Stampin Up or CTMH will know this but for anyone that hasn't made them before they are basically a decorated envelope. Which is sealed and cut in half so they are like two pockets. Which then you put a package of hot chocolate mix, some mini marshmallows, and a candy cane or other peppermint type candy. Now depending on your style you can decorate anyway you please, I tend to pull out my snowflake Stampin Up rolling stamp and decorate the whole envelope with it in blue. Then have a focal image of a snowman or other Christmas images I have. I hope you enjoy and will see you back here soon for pictures of the cards I am going to do for my Christmas card workshop.

More Bazaar Creations

Hello Everyone,
I just wanted to post a few more pictures of the creations I was making for the girls school bazaar. The card stock is a combination of Stampin Up and Michaels Recollections paper. The adhesive is a combo again of my ATG gun and xyron glue, as well as the pop dots were dollar store brand. Oh and before I forget I used glue dots too that are the zots brand from Michaels. Any ink was a combination of copics, tombow, stampin up, close to my heart, and memento. Punches were Fiskars and Marvy. I think I have covered all the supplies which I had forgotten in my last post. In case anyone is wondering the post it notes and spiral notebooks were bought a the dollar store and the huge paper clips for the book marks were purchased at Staples. Now I think I have it all covered if you have any questions you can always post it in the comments area.

Sorry for the sideways picture I wasn't able to get it to turn and of course took the picture and uploaded before I my tech guy was home. Hope you enjoy and see you back here soon.

I'm back

Hello everyone,
I am very sorry it has been so long since I last posted but unfortunately I have been sick with a cold and then pink eye. It has not been a great week or so. But being sick and not leaving the house has given me a chance to work on some crafty things for the Adrienne Clarkson Bazaar. It is a great thing the school started last year. This is not a fundraiser even thought the money does help with things for the school, but to clearly send the students the message that it is NOT the value of a gift but the thought behind it that really matters. All the items will be priced between $0.50 up to $5.00. And so the students can choose between things like toys, books, frames, ties, clocks, candles, jewelry and hand made crafts. Well you know as soon as I found out hand made crafts were one of the items we could donate for this cause I was so on it. I have to admit last year I was on it too with hand made boxes full of Christmas tags. And I also added some Snowman Soup which I will do again because apparently it was a huge success. Anyways I am starting to ramble so what I wanted to do was to give you a peak as to what I will be donating this year.

Ok so the first picture is post it note holder with a pen. In the second one is mini note pads with a pen as well and lastly is bookmarks made with huge paperclips.
I hope you enjoy and as soon as I get the snowman soup done I will post those as well. Hope everyone is staying well and see you all soon.
