cheap things at Michael's

So last week I found the big wood clothespins and blanked after I painted I tried stamping and embossing it and since I have only a few colors of embossing powders I went with red. I think it looks pretty cool! Glad I tried it!

So, I was going to sell my sizzix and get the new Cuttlebug...until someone from SCS told me NO, that I could use the embossing folders in the sizzix. So I took it off ebay and viola! It really works great...not to mention they are cheap and you can also use a rolling pin! Here's a card I did with the big folder...

This was also using my new SAB sets (thanks to my MIL) "very punny"...I think this set is many ways to use it. On another note, my girlfriend Toni and I have a craft fair to do March 17th...gotta get busy making stuff!

paper purses

Ok, I have taken on what i consider my first real crafting job (since it is for no one I know personally). She called me last week and said she met me in September at a craft fair I did. She needed 50 favors for a bridal shower by Jan 14th! Yikes. She wanted the paper purses, so I breathed a sigh of relief. i have made so many for the fair I had the groove of making them down to a "T". Here's what I came up with:

She gave me a deposit, so I am pretty sure I won't get stuck. So now I gotta get busy, only a few days left!
