Normally, I save sharing about my Stampin' Up! goodies for my Stuck on Stampin' blog, but I just had to share it all here first! Enjoy!!
A couple of Saturdays ago, I participated in my first craft bazaar as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. Not only did I set up my own booth, but I was coordinating all of the other 40+ vendors who would be there. Talk about STRESS!!! (A little reason why I was MIA here in blogland for 2 weeks!) But, I wasn't alone. This was a Holiday Bazaar & Bake Sale Fundraiser for our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group, so all of us on the leadership were able to pull together a very successful first year!
Although, yes, indeed, it was super stressful with getting everything ready to have a great looking table, in the end I was glad I was able to pull off the projects that I did! My list was MUCH longer than everything that I actually got accomplished, but at one point I decided that I could only do what I could do. I can save the other projects for next year!
My upline and friend, Andrea joined me for the bazaar, which made our table double in size! Overall, it was definitely all worth it as I made a good chunk of money to put back into purchasing more great Stampin' Up! products and continue my love for creating and inspiring others!
3 designs in packages of 5
I was so surprised that NONE of them sold! I have 7 packages. Let me know if you're looking for some handmade Christmas cards. *wink* (5 cards for $8 or 2 pkgs. for only $12!)
Mikayla helped me make these. Basically it is oatmeal with red and green sprinkles. On top, I included the poem that goes along with it. I don't think many of the bazaar shoppers knew what it was, but I think the kids would get a kick out of leaving this reindeer food on the lawn on Christmas Eve.
Sprinkle on the lawn at night,
The moon will make it sparkle bright.
Santa's reindeer fly and roam,
This will guide them to your home.
Post It Note & Pen Holder
I found this cute tutorial here and had so much fun making these! They really are super easy and would make such great gifts!
Decorative Clothespins & Altered Binder Clips
These are so easy and fun to make! You could whip a bunch of these out with a little bit of Mod Podge and some patterned paper.
These are mini Hershey candy bars covered to look like snowmen. Another tutorial, I found and knew I had to make a lot of them. 20 to be exact! The tutorial can be found here.
I just recently purchased an adorable Stampin' Up! die for my Big Shot die cut machine and it makes it so super easy to make gift tags. I can't wait to make up many more of these to add to the packages at Christmas!
LOVED these! These sold really well! Again, the minute I found this tutorial, I just knew I had to make these...as many as I could! The tutorial link uses the large sized Tic Tacs, but Costco only sold the packs of small sized. Maybe I'll make a new tutorial for the small size? Interested?
Inside it says:
He's cute, cuddly & full of good wishes.
He wants to give you these snowman kisses!
These were decorated with patterned paper and are the perfect little size for putting money inside or a small little Hershey chocolate.
Hidden inside is a package of hot cocoa, mini marshmallows in a clear baggie, Hershey's Kisses and a candy cane. I had an assembly line in making these, so they came together rather quick and easy and turned out so cute!
