Frosty Fair 2017 -Stampin' Up! Style

Hi everyone! It was definitely a great work day. This was the second year Designs by Jennifer Lynn attended the Frosty Fair, sponsored by Colchester Fire Department Auxiliary. They do such a great job. They provided help unloading, two coupons for free donuts and coffee, and had cadets coming around to get lunch for each vendor.

Here are a few photos of my table space.
I truly kept it simple. I have learned from past fairs, simple is best.
Advent Calendar Trees were a definite hot item. There was only one left when all was said and done. I offered an exclusive show price and truly wish I had more to offer.
My calendar easels and Peppermint Sugar Scrubs were also very popular.
Another hot seller was my tea bag treats. I am already in need of making more.
Card sets were a bit slow however.....
Single card sales were amazing!!!! 10/$10 was the show special and it was battle for the favorites.
Tootsie the Turkey was another hot item as she was selling her Turkey Toes.
Snowflake soap was not as hot is an item but they thought the pizza boxes were adorable.
Both of these fun treats, notepad stacks and foot soak test tube treats also did well.
When all was said and done, it was the best fair for Designs by Jennifer Lynn. Next event is not until December. Thanks for stopping by.

Craft Fair and Custom Order Fun

Hi everyone! Sorry it has been a little bit since I have shared on here. I have been catching up with custom orders and creating fun craft fair items.

I want to share a few of these items with you.

These are just a few of the many great items that will be on my table this Saturday at the Frosty Fair. I will definitely share a post on all the fun of Saturday. 

These are a few of the custom orders I did over the last few weeks. I truly love working with clients to bring their visions to life. 

Each one created and personalized to meet my clients needs. Stay tuned for some important policy information when using my custom order process. 

Thanks again for stopping by. Have a great day!

Night 13: 13 Nights of Halloween Series -Coffin of Treats

Hey everyone.....

Tonight's last project for our 13 Nights of Halloween series, is a special treat holder that would be great for grandkids, your kids, nieces, nephews, or anyone you would like to give a few treSeries, Introducing the Coffin of Treats.

This cute little treat holder can hold quite a few treats or even a small little gift.
As you can see it is fairly deep, giving lots of room for those special treats and gifts you would like to give.

The following are the easy to follow instructions and a product list below that so you know just what you need to create this fun project.

Coffin of Treats Instructions
1) Cut out two houses using the Home Sweet Home Framelits in crumbcake cardstock, or you can choose a wood pattern from the fun wood texture paper pack if you are looking for using current product for this same look.
2) If you are stamping, you will also cut two small strips of crumbcake cardstock the lenght of the short end of the little house.
3) You will then take Basic Gray ink and the Hardwood background stamp and stamp both the fronts of the houses. These will create a more spooky feel to the Coffin.
4) You will then trim off one of the flaps on the bottom of the house of the top piece that creates the open door of the Coffin.
5) You then add some fast fuse or strong adhesive to all the tabs except the two that will be closing the door on the top.
6) Next you add the two strips (and yes add some woodgrain to both those pieces as well). Glue dots work best for this or multipurpose glue. Also, make sure you tilt the wood planks a bit when you add them.
7) Once you have this all together you can add some enamel shapes to accent the front of the coffin.
8) The last piece is to stamp a cute ghost using the Sweet Home stamp set in black ink.
Make sure add lots of goodies for those special people you are giving treats too.

Product List
Thanks so much for visiting tonight. I hope you enjoyed the variety of projects and will join me again soon. Wishing everyone a safe and spooky Halloween. Have a great evening!

Night 12: 13 Nights of Halloween Series -Stampin' Up! Style

Hey everyone!  We are just one night away from the end of our series.  I wanted to show you just how easy it is to take all the great projects we have journeyed through over the past 12 nights and show you how easy it is to create home décor pieces.

This is an old artist tray that Stampin' Up! offered a few years back.  I love the versatility and the fact that I can create any theme with it. You can truly do so much with frames, artist trays, and just about any type of home décor piece with Stampin' Up! supplies.

I have attached a list of the products that I used to create this fun piece of home décor for some spooky fun. Below this list, I also shared a great idea that just so happened to come out in my Stampin' Up! Tuesday updates this morning. Scroll past the product list to see....

Product List
Here you can see how a simple frame became the perfect work of art tabletop décor to help spook our trick or treaters. One more night to go, with one more project and a special treat over on my Facebook Group Page.  See you all tomorrow my dear mortal friends.....A little Haunted Mansion Disney fun....;-)
