Craft Fair News

What a fantastic time at the St Michael's craft fair this weekend! Lots of friendly shoppers stopped by to chat at our table, which is always fun.

We'll be at a small show in North Raleigh this weekend at Olde Raleigh Village on Edwards Mill & Blue Ridge Rd. Hope to see you there! Christmas shopping is in full swing!

Window for Floating Image

I'm on a Christmas card kick right now, and this card is inspired by the Papertrey Challenge to create an image floating over a window.

Closeup of window:

The tree and sentiment are from the Papertrey Ink Winterberry set. Behind my window are some falling snowflakes made with the Papertrey Ink Winter Penguin set.

Inside card:

I really love this idea and will probably try a few a more variations on it. I don't have a lot of punches to make the window, nor do I have a die-cutter! But I do have a small 1-inch hole punch, and I was thinking I'd try a card with a few small windows instead of one large window. So we'll see how that works out!

Thanks for looking!
