This past weekend was the local High School Craft Fair. I set up a table with some handmade cards, goodies, and gifts along with a small sample of all Stampin’ Up! has to offer. I love having the opportunity to share all of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! with other people.
One of my favorite little treats from the day were these adorable Friendship Teas. I made tea packet holders from card stock, added Tea for Two designer series paper, tied with a ribbon and a cute friendship tea poem. I used Tazo Mint and Tazo Passion tea (they are my favorite). I stamped the Tea Party stamp in Pool Party ink and then colored the tea cup with Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral and Pear Pizzaz. I added a small strip of Scalloped Dotted Border inside to fancy them up.
Don’t you just love the mustache basket that they are stored in?
Here’s a close up of the packets.
Finally, one of my newest goals for Stamp Events is to display some items from the catalog and ways to use them. I thought it was also important to have a cohesive feel to the display. Here are some elements I considered:
Color: To achieve this I chose colors to use- black, gold, white and teal. I stuck exclusively with these colors for the table cloths, display holders, buckets, trays, etc. It helps pull all of the elements together.
Project Board: I also wanted to display some of the awesome projects you can make at Stamp Club, workshops, stamp parties, and as a demonstrator. I think the Stamp Club board did a great job of displaying card samples.
Vignette: Arranging the items in mini groupings sets the mood, pulls together items, and polishes the display. It brings in a WOW factor. Here I used the white shelf to house cards and prop up the Burlap and Blooms Wreath. It adds height, showcases cards and is used as a prop for the wreath.
Make & Take: What’s the best way to excite people about stamping? Let them make a card! I set up a simple make and take card that was stamped, colored with markers and topped off with washi tape. Once you’ve stamped, you’ll never want to stop.
I hope to post more pictures as the week goes on. In the meantime, Happy Crafting.
