Christmas in July

Back to school, Thanksgiving, Halloween – all of these events yet to come before we start hearing Christmas jingles in the malls.  But in the crafting world, we’re relishing in the beautiful sunny days on one hand, but are building snowmen and stuffing stockings in our heads!  I’m just about to get started on building up my inventory for this year’s series of craft fairs, and to get my head in the right place, I decided that reminiscing on last year’s craft fair season would do the trick.

Here’s what my table looked like:

I was selling jewelry also last year, so that is occupying the right hand side of my table, but the left hand side is all of my hand made crafting stuff.

I had a ballot box for a drawing of the Christmas tree, which also allowed people ot sign up for my monthly newsletter.  I was giving away Idea Books for FREE as well.  I had little candy sticks with decorative toppers, card purses, mini albums and the best sellers, were gift card holders.  I’ll be making ALOT of these for this year, and with Close to my Heart’s Cricut cartridges, these will be EXTRA easy!!  Stay tuned for my very first video, that will focus on using the Cricut cartridges to make gift card holders!

Pa Poy, Pa Poy!!

I absolutely loved the movie Despicable Me – I laughed, I cried, I felt warm and fuzzy inside!!…But what I love even more is that my nephew also loves the movie…So when I saw a picture of  him posing like a minion with his 3d glasses just a few weeks before his 8th birthday, I knew he was giving me the perfect reason to google those lovable little yellow plops (??!!) and get inspired for a birthday card!

Here’s the outcome:

He was so much fun to make…I really liked how he turned out too – the Silver Glitter paper  for his eye-piece makes the whole card *pop*.   I used the super sharp micro-tip scissors to hand cut his mouth pieces

I had to send this card by mail to my nephew, and it wasn’t delivered on time due to the floods in Toronto that week.  But the best part is that on his birthday, he says he got all that he had wanted except a Minion card!!!  So he was THRILLED to get one, even though it was a few days late!

And in case you’re wondering where the title for this post comes from, here’s the inspiration:

Thanksgiving in July…

I know – it’s supposed to be Christmas in July, and that is in the works for mid-month…

But I want to kick off the month by saying Thank You!!  I want to give back a bit for your patronage, so this month, I am offering a special promotion of my own.

You will be rewarded with some freebies for placing orders on my shopping website !  Every purchase of at least 20$ will earn you a free “Petite Perks” stamp set that are exclusive for consultants to give to our customers to show them they are appreciated.  You cannot get this super adorable stamp set unless you place an order!

Remember last month’s promotional Thank You stamp? Every 50 $ order placed on my shopping website will get you that same stamp for free!  If you’ve already purchased it, you can substitute it for any monogram stamp!  And you’ll also get the Petite Perks stamp set too!!!

The way to qualify for this special is to join the Thank You gathering listed on the shopping site.  Do not order the stamp on your order though…you’ll have to send me an e-mail (rgkreations@hotmail.com) to specify which stamp you want and ensure that I have your proper mailing address.

While you’re on the shopping website, take some time to look around…You’ll see there’s tons of resources to help you unleash your creativity!!  There are video resources and workshop instructions as well as bonus projects you can complete with the supplies you’ve ordered.
