Christmas Craft Fair Items

This year my Scarlet Sophisticate group decided to have vendors at our big Christmas party to sell items prior to the party and during break time. They asked me to set up a table. I concentrated mainly on making stocking stuffer-type items. I sold the majority of what I took, so I was happy with the results. Here are some of the items I made to sell. I forgot to take pictures of the red hat cards I made and the bags of Santa Kisses (Hershey's Kisses), Reindeer Kisses (Soft Peppermint candy) and Rudolph's Spare Noses (Red Hot candies).

First off, these are place setters I made so that the waiters would be able to tell who ordered what. Everyone got one for what they pre-ordered - beef, chicken or fish to set out with their place setting. I used retired sets for the fish - "Fish Frolics" and the chicken - "Walk This Way". The cow is from a non-SU! stamp set I have and was just too cute to not use.

Here are the items I sold:

Nugget Tins (These are my favorite)

Freeze-dried Snowballs (Tic Tacs). These are an exact case from another demo, but I can't remember who, so if you know or it is you, let me know, so that I can give that person credit. The stamp set used is "Punch Pals".

Wrapped mini Hershey bars and Kit Kats

Test Tubes with M&Ms in holders (tutorial by Lisa Somerville)

Snowman Soup (again I can't remember who made the tags I used for the snowman soup. She also made the tags I used for the Reindeer Kisses). The snowman face and hat are made using the Top Note Die. I have seen these done by many people and love them.

Update: The tag sheets I used for the Snowman Soup and Reindeer Kisses were done by Kimberley Morris. You can get them and several others on her blog.

Sr. Ctr. Card Day

We made our final batch of Christmas cards for this year. This time we primarily used the new "Bells & Boughs" stamp set from the Holiday mini. Here are some a couple of the ladies made.

This is one I made for Terri - she runs the kitchen at the center. She is busy getting lunch ready for the ladies, so does not join us to make cards, but she asked me to make her one, so I threw this together for her at the end. I used the "Jolly Old St. Nick" stamp set from the Holiday mini.
We used some retired DSP on the cards.

My Digital Studio Cards

I have been playing with My Digital Studio program again and lovin' it! I made 2 cards and even sent one off to be printed, to see how it comes out and make sure I did it right - LOL! The first card I made is a penguin and is all MDS punches. It was inspired by Wendy Hawkinson, check hers out on her blog.

On the second I used the MDS stamped images from Winter Post and some DSP and ribbon embellishments and punches. This one took me a little longer to put together, but I like the way it came out. Now that I have done it I think future ones will be easier to do. This is the one I sent off to be printed, I figure if it comes out okay, then I did it right and should be okay for future projects. I'll let you know how they come out when I get them.
