Busy, Busy, Busy!

Hello friends & family . . .
Sorry I've not been posting more regularly but you see, there's a lot going on in my life right now so I thought I'd share just a quick post to let you know what's been happening.

As I mentioned in my post last Saturday, there is a wedding at months end (that's all coming together nicely) and I have a Spring show on April 17th.  That is where my attentions are at the moment.  I think I have plenty of cards (will make more if time permits), the tissue box covers are all completed & packaged ready to go and now I was wanting to create something NEW to share with the ladies.  I decided on Pop Up Box Cards ... here's what I have made so far . . .

Yes this is how I've decided to showcase them so they can see what they look like open.  Then as they select them I will put them in their coordinating envelopes.  What do you think of the magnetic board & easel display idea??

If they sell well, I will come up with a better 'on the table' display but I just don't have time to come up with that right now ... I got permission to use this display so it will have to do for this time around.  I would rather spend my time making the cards so I have enough ... I think they are cute and the ladies will like them.

Here are a few close ups . . .

With this being an 'older' crowd, I'm really struggling to come up with ideas but hopefully these will be well received. 

I have used the Pink & Main Box Card die as my base.

I also have the Lawn Fawn Pop Up Box Card die that I will be working with this coming week.  I'll share some of those when they are completed.  It has a different edge which I think will also make for some cute box cards.

Okay ... back to work ... still have a lot to do and also want to make individually wrapped Hershey Nugget pouches tied with Easter colored ribbons.  Like my title says . . . Busy, Busy, Busy!  LOL

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
