With over 15 different vendors, raffles, giveaways and a door prize valued at over $200 you won't want to miss this event!!

This will be my 2nd vendor show and my last one of the year. Come out and see some of the fun things I've been making for Christmas this year. And of course don't forget to sign up for the free raffles and door prize.

Coaster Class * Great Christmas Gifts*

This class has proven to be my most popular class thus far!

For only $10 you take home with you a set of 4 stone tile coasters with your favorite photos on them. Many of my customers have made more than one set, in fact one of my customers has made 5 sets and is planning on making 3 more sets on Dec. 3rd (which is my next scheduled class)

With only a few more spots available for my December 3rd class and so much interest, I am now offering classes for you (and 4 or 5 of your friends) at your own home! I will come to your home with all the materials to make as many coaster sets as you and your friends would like.

These stone photo coasters are a great Christmas gifts and something that can be used everyday! If you have any questions shoot me an email to melodysteiner@yahoo.com

* I am also available to teach a Holiday Gift Class in which everyone would make 3 or 4 gifts they can give out this year. Please contact me for details.

Make your own Ink Pads for kids using Re-Inkers!

My kids love watching me use rubber stamps when I scrapbook, and over the years I have bought them some rubber stamps of their own. Hobby stores like Michaels & Hobby Lobby have sets of foam stamps for $1.00 with lots of kid designs to choose from.

The problem I run into, is letting them use my ink pads. With my kids being 5 & 4 years old, I don't quite trust them with my $6.00 ink pads. And of course each child wants their own ink pads. And although you can find $1.00 ink pads at some stores, I don't recommend purchasing them. $1.00 Ink Pads usually don't have much ink on them & dry up before you have the chance to use them more than once.
What I recommend is making your own ink pads. This can easily be done with the following:
  • A baby wipe
  • A small foam plate
  • re-inkers

All you need to do is squeeze around 8 drops of each color onto the baby wipe & voila!

I purchase my Re-Inkers through Stampin Up. They run $2.95 per bottle, and can also be used to dye ribbon, re-ink your Stampin Up ink pads and much more. With 58 colors to choose from the possibilities are endless.

Depending on what your using your re-inkers for, they can last a very long time!

Eyelet Lover Layout

Here is a layout I created today for Author Jane Porter. The subject is her niece Krystyna and was taken on their trip to Europe.

  • I choose paper based on the colors in the pictures. I love the pink, Dark gray & light gray combo!

  • I used The Cricut to create the K, and tied Stampin Up Organza ribbon around the top of it for added embellishment.
  • I think the eyelets create a nice accent to the page without overkill.

Here is a Squidoo page I created about choosing the Best Eyelet Setter http://www.squidoo.com/Best-Eyelet-Setter

And here is the layout idea I scraplifted for this page:

Thanks for looking!
