craft fair sneak peak #2

Thank you for stopping by today.  I have a few photos of some of the other things that I am selling at the various arts & crafts fairs.

The letter, is an 'F'.  It's made from chipboard.  I painted it, and then adhered some beautiful pattern paper, London Market, by Pink Paisley.  I adhered various items to the letter; a metal medallion with a bird cameo, a strip of crochet trim.  I added a pink paper blossom.  I created the leaves from some text paper.  I added a loop of pearls, and a rhinestone button.
This is a magnetic letter.  So, you can stick it to your refrigerator, your locker at work/school, or any other metal surface.
I had to alter some more letters, because I sold out at my craft fair @ the Tramway Community Church.  So, I have altered the following letters: A, B, C, D, F, L, M, N, and S.
These letters were a blast altering, so I will be adding some to my Etsy shop.

This is a gift card holder.  You open the top flap, and I have a holiday greeting heat embossed in white.  And there is a pocket to tuck a gift card in.  Or, if you prefer, you can add cash or a personal check.  Just hold either of those options in half, and they will fit in the pocket.  These were a blast to make.  I could use my holiday scraps.
I used some Bo Bunny holiday pattern paper, that is probably 2-3 years old.  I created a 'fancy' square from a coffee cuff.  I distressed the edge with some picket fence paint and then dumped it in some glitter.  I added a mirror snowflake.  For the greeting, I stamped and punched 'Winter Frost' and then attached the modern label punch with some tiny silver brads.

These are two different size altered notepads that I have decorated.  I have two different styles and two different sizes.  I have Christmas/Holiday themed altered notepads, and girly/feminine themed altered notepads.  Each pad has 25 pages of lined paper.
The larger one, is 5" x 8", and the smaller one, is 2 1/2" x 8".
I used pattern paper that I had on hand.  The smaller pad uses pattern paper from City Sidewalks.  The larger pad used pattern paper, the Sweetest Thing by My Minds Eye.
Each of the altered notepads that I have created, have an altered silver clip.  The clip holds the notepad closed.  You know, just in case you throw the pad in a bag.  But, if you have a message board, put the clip at the top, and hold the legs back.  This will allow the notepad to hang from a push pin.

Thank you for looking.  Remember, if you want to shift through the best selection, shop early @ my booth/table.  And after these shopping opportunities, I will have the 'left overs' on sale at my Etsy shop.
I hope I have inspired you to play along, or if nothing else, to hand-craft a holiday gift or two {smile}.
