Getting Ready.....

We have been busy getting ready for our very first craft show. Yay! It's a small one in Morgan Hill CA, but since it's our very first, we want everything just right.
I created several NEW examples to display on our table and we made a paper catalog with all items in the store. It looks good! Hubby has out done himself! Can't wait to see our table set up too. I'll take tons of pictures!!
We are taking just about everything from both stores. :) We printed stationery, recipe cards, bookplates, note cards, and of course our scrapbooking tags and embellishments.
Here is a cute and simple mini I made with our Road Trip Tags. I used chipboard, fabric paper, our tags, banana paper and bound it using my handy dandy Bind-it-all.
Super easy and portable, I plan to jot notes and add pics once we take our next road trip. ;)
Here are some pictures (from our practice table). Love the damask plates. Ahhh. Our black and white tags look awesome!
I will also have some in buckets. I spray painted each one to give it that "shabby" look.

As I mentioned before, we are printing our Blueberry Freckles stationery in sets of 8. We used specialty paper- banana paper! Since scrapbooking tends to get a bad rap in the eco-friendly department, we decided to do our part with some eco-friendly sets. We used banana paper. How awesome is that?So much work has gone into this craft show, can't wait for it to be over. heheh If all goes well, we will continue on with the craft shows. Wish us luck!
