More Sneak Peaks.....

Here are a few more things I'm making for the Craft Fair that will take place in about ONE MONTH!! AAAAARRRRRHHHH! :)
The 4 cards above belong to a set of Year-Round cards that will go into a Stationery Box and sell as a set.

The Happy New Year and Happy Thanksgiving cuts came from the Wild Card Cricut Cart, and the photo corners on the Thanksgiving card are from the Jasmine cart.

The notepad below is legal length, and can be use for lots and lots of lists!!!

Project Teaser... Craft Fair in Early November!

Click on the picture to show a screen-sized view!

So you may have noticed I've been taking a teeny tiny break from the blog - due to a new school year at a new campus, etc. etc. etc.....

This is what I've been doing in the evenings!!! I'm preparing for a local craft fair at the beginning of November!

I've got an entire notebook of lists of things to make - and that's what I've been doing.
Here's just a little peek at some of the projects.

Each type of tag has stickles, and a To: From: stamp on the back to attach to gifts.
I'm also making a series of Stationery Boxes for gifts among lots of other things. :)

Kitchen Sink Stamp card - Made with the Roses Stamp Set I Won!

Here you can see the roses stamp (2 sizes) I used for the card. The butterfly is also from a Kitchen Sink stamp set. The Stampin' Up ink is just the very best quality for using these stamps!

The photo corners are from Spellbinders, and the card is embossed with the paisley folder, and one of the new design strips from Cuttlebug. I used the Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid ink for the edges, and bottom swirl to bring them out a little more. You can probably see some stickle accents on the butterfly and each rose.

One lunchtime at work this past week, the girls were talking about someone they know (being new, I haven't had the chance to meet this person) who's going through a rough time. SO, I came home and though of using my new stamp set to make this card. It turned out even better than I imagined it!!
How do you find Kitchen Sink Stamps to make these AWESOME projects? Click HERE!

Please enjoy.

Cricut Booklets and Overlays Storage Solution!!! ***Update with pictures!!

I saw this post on the Cricut Messageboard earlier this week, and had to share!!! I hope lots of people can make use of this technique!!

Etha has designed a sleeve that fits perfectly in so many ways.
1. It holds both the book and overlay together
2. Each of the sleeves fits perfectly into a photo box, or crate.
3. They can easily be made in quantity for those of us that have LOTS of carts!

This is the link to her post, pictures, and diagram for MAKING these sleeves!

I am almost half done assembling the sleeves for my carts. I'll take pictures as soon as I have all of them made. It's an inspired idea!!!

So here they are all finished! It did take me 2 days with interruptions for work, cooking dinner, etc. I didn't go through all that awesome work Etha did in printing the cart names, or running a copy of the keypad on the outside... Hers are beautiful! Please go check them out.

**One thing I will add - These sleeves are also large enough to hold some extra cuts! If I know I'm going to use a certain cut often, I usually make a few extra. The sleeves would be a good place to store them neatly! The snack sized Ziplock bags fit PERFECTLY into the sleeves.

Pictures on the way!!
