Maker Market 🌟 Day 3

Welcome!

This is a picture from last year’s Maker Market at the Eau Claire Local Store. I’m starting to feel some anxiety looking back at this picture and feeling I may not be ready! I do have all of the cards I’ve been posting this year, but my other classics I haven’t even made yet.

Hang in there with me as I sort it out over the next few days.

Until tomorrow…

Christmas in July ❄️ Day 13

Welcome!

This card was a huge hit last year at craft fairs and at the Eau Claire Local Store. It was fun to make and I can’t wait to make some more this year.

For the background, I used a snow embossing folder. I used distress ink in the inside of the folder before I put the card stock through my embossing machine. It really helped to create a snowfall impression against a night sky. I also used a cabin die from Memory Box company.

I hope you are enjoying your weekend!

Until tomorrow…

Hot Cocoa Packs

Good evening!

I would like to share with you my good news!  But first, I have to give you some backstory. I watched a YouTube video by Amber at

and learned how to make these adorable hot cocoa packs for my craftfair. Well, I only sold a few of them and was rather discouraged. Today, I received an email from one of my coworkers and she ordered 35 packs!  She wants them for her son’s kindergarten class next Friday.  I’m so excited to fill her order. I will make sure to post a picture of the finished lot.

Never be discouraged with yourself!  You are amazing!

Flower Magnets

Tonight I am absolutely thrilled!   I made 10 packs of these flower magnets and I sold all of them!  They were so much fun to make. I used my cricut to cut out the flowers and then hand rolled each one. I glued each flower onto a magnet. Finally, I packaged them in groups of 5 for sale

I enjoyed mixing patterned paper with plain paper for different looks. I especially enjoyed using flower patterns. Some of these combinations were pretty spectacular. 

The challenging part was to keep the magnets from attracting to each other. I would arrange the flowers the way I wanted to package them and then..POW!  They all flew together in one big clump!

What have you made lately that you are most proud of?  Visit my Instagram @gazellesentiments to see more of my craft fair ideas. Keep creating!
