Just Add Ink #131

Over at Just Add Ink this week they have a colour challenge.  I have had a little bit of time today so I decided that I would make a card for the challenge.  I think it took me about 15 minutes to make the card and about an hour to figure out how to post it to my blog!

Now I have worked out how to update my blog, hopefully it won't be so long between posts.

Thanks for looking

Childrens Cards

Baby / Birthday Cards

I have made a few of these cards recently. They are so easy to make and you can use any stamp that will fit within the 1 3/8 inch circle punch. I discovered the layout last year, unfortunately I can't remember where to find the original design.

Button Magnets

I have discovered that making buttons becomes very addictive! I have been making these button magnets in addition to button hair ties (see previous post). Unfortunately they didn't sell as well as I would have hoped, so it looks like my button making will have to slow down before I become over-run by buttons!

Hair Ties

Wow three posts in one day!!! Just thought I would show you a new item I am going to have at my next market. I have been making these button hair ties. The only thing is I have to hide them from my girls otherwise I will have nothing to sell. Thanks also to my Dad for making this great stand to display them on.

Thanks for looking.


Stamp Class

On Friday Tania, Bronwyn and myself held a Stamp Class at my place. Bronwyn demonstrated this great shirt and tie card and Tania showed us how to make her twilight card as well as the rose that goes on it. The above cards are my attempts at the cards. I demonstrated the Post it Note holders from my last post. I'm sorry I don't have any pictures from the night, but if you head on over to Tania's Blog she has some great pictures of us hard at work.

Post it Note Holders

I have been making a few of these Post It Note Holders recently after finding the instructions on the site of an American Stampin' Up demonstrator, Dawn Griffith. You can find the instructions here.

Beaconsfield Market

Sorry for the lack of posts this week. I had a table at the Beaconsfield Market last Saturday and had spent a considerable amount of time preparing, so I needed the week to catch up on all the other things that I had been neglecting!!!

The market went well, with the post it note holders and flower bookmarks being my best sellers.
I'm just going to take some photos of the items I made at Bronwyn's last night before I lose the sun. I will be back later to share some more.
