Birthday Invite & More Craft Fair Stuff...

Yes I've been busy... too busy to post yesterday I guess. Here is the birthday invitation my daughter helped design that we've been working on this weekend. Can you guess what kind of party she wants? You guessed it- roller blading at the local roller-rink. We'll see how that goes with a bunch of 6 & 7 year olds! It is complete with black chunky glitter, brads (of course) and moving wheels. This wasn't too hard. I free-hand drew the basic shape then added details with the Word Window punch for the straps and the circle punches for the wheels.

Next up... beaded pens and magnetic chipboard coaster post-it note holders. Phew, that's a mouthful! I only had a handful of chipboard coasters (including three more I haven't finished yet) so I won't have many of these but they turned out so cute I think! I may just have to keep one for myself. Both sides of the coaster are covered with a Stampin' Up! pack of designer paper including (from left top) Ginger Blossoms, Urban Garden, Wintergreen, Summer Picnic and Spring Fling.
This is the first I've made the beaded pens. They were fun and not too hard. I have learned that you really need to use bright colors for them to show up under the clear micro beads. I've got 6 more of those I can make.
Everyday I am thinking of more things to make for these craft fairs coming up. I hope I have time to make most of them. Tomorrow when my Top Note Die gets here for my Big Shot I'll be making some cute Halloween treat bags that I found on-line- adorable! I'll be sure to post those as soon as I can. They should be fairly easy since they are entirely made of punches and the die cut.
Thanks for stopping by! (And a special hi to my Mom who says she read my ENTIRE blog yesterday! Hi to Dad too!)
