Tea Time at the Craft Fair

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.

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.
