I LOVE IT! It flows so much better. Thank you! I like it a lot, lot, better now

You ladies are so great!

Hi Ladies, me again

We are doing a couple of fall shows before the Christmas season so I wanted some gimmicky treats like my elf pillows, etc.

I found some small snack size bags of candy corn so I am going to make those into Jack-O-Lantern seeds. Trying to come up with a poem, so if anyone has any ideas I am totally open!

Also I am wanting to make more Halloween/Fall type items like that but I just can't think at the moment what I would make. I know Butterscotch candies come wrapped so I could use those, they are orange and kind of fall. But I don't know what "gimmick" to pair it with. Any ideas?

I also really want to do some Hannakuh things like I have for Christmas. I would need blue or white candy that is pre wrapped or packaged and then something fun to call it...I know they do chocolate coins so I could always use those too. Any ideas there?

Thanks to all you great ladies!

And I too love the idea of the shopping list. I'm also going to be making the postcards like suggested here with a listing of all our fall/winter shows and a coupon if they come to another show. Great way to get repeat business!

Default big paper clip bookmarks

I tried a book mark or 2 but have a question. When you look at the top where the scalloped circles are back to back, does it look bad because you can see the paperclips under the scallops. Do you try to hide them?

Also, one year I used candy corns for vampire teeth.

I got packages of m&m's from Walmart- they have each individual color- red, green, blue, pink ect. You could probably use jelly beans as well?

Hi ladies. Hope you don't mind me butting in. I've been following this thread for a long time, marvelling at all yoru fabulous ideas. I have a question that I just can't find the answer to and wonder if you can help.

When you use pegboard or hinged boards on your table for your display, how do you make sure it doesn't fall over? I would love to have one on my table but fear it will fall over onto everything or someone. By the way, I envy that in the US the norm is to have booths and what would over here be classed as very large scale events. Here the norm is one 6 foot table for about 20 per day!

'Somewhere' on this site (I think this is where I saw it) someone posted a place where you could order tile from - it was a whiter tile, but it was flat - not full of holes - and shipping was free and it was pretty much what we paid for them at the stores. Anyone remember seeing that and can lead me to where it was? I'm going to search for it too. I didn't see it on the threads here when I went through them.
Oh no, Lowes discontinued selling... If I copied and pasted this correctly it is the thread that I think you are talking about for the tiles.

Thanks for the alert. I was able to stop and get some today. Had 2 people with me so I could get 6 packs. This really helps. I forgot to ask how long the sale is on. Do you know?

Has anyone ever had little plastic bins like you can get at the dollar store and used them for shopping baskets. I thought about having some this year. I have noticed when ladies start picking up all the small items that I have in plastic bags that it is hard for them to hold on to everything and still have a free hand to keep looking. I know I like a basket when I shop. Maybe with a free hand they will continue to look more and buy more. Just thought I would give it a try. Maybe put the shopping list with the baskets on ideas of who to shop for.

That would be a neat idea. I know Dollar Tree had some small baskets with collapsible handles so they could all stack up nicely when not being used

I have a picture in my gallery. I get the calendar from Cat here, she has a bunch of templates in the download/template forum. I used CD calendar for mine.

Covered 4x4 cardboard coasters (even cardstock would work but it needs to be thick). Cut 4x4 cardstock and decorate with patterned paper - you can add stamped images for that month but I didn't the last time. You can put hald a year on the front and the other half on the back - I've done it both ways.

Let me know if you need more info.

I don't think that I will be selling the beaded RSVP pens with them this year....last fall I sold them better on their own than I did as a set...I guess because with the beaded pens that pushed them over 5.00? Maybe I can find a cheaper alternative to the beaded pens?

Did you (or can you) post a Glee notebook? Did you find paper or a stamp?? I'd like to see if you can share.

Mary, on your coaster calendars, are you just putting 2 pages in them? 6 months per page, or one page per month?

I only have a pix of the Glee notebooks before I finished them with the embellies....not all that special looking at this point...not sure why I didn't take a pix when they were done??? {sigh} I added some 3D music notes that I cut on my cricut and ribbon etc to the finished ones.
100_5141.jpg

I bought the digital images on Etsy and pieced them into strips for that collage effect. They lady that I purchased them from isn't selling digital images anymore, but I bet you can find more on there now.

Hope that helps!

One month per page - but you can put another month on the back if you want. I don't think I did that though, since a wrong month would be displayed from behind. So I had 12 pages plus front and back coasters, punched at top with rings to hold it together. They stand up when you flip it open. Really easy and I usually sell them for around $5 or more and sell a lot of them.

Yes nine. It shows nine and in description it says it covers a square foot - 3 tiles that are 4 x 4 so that should be right. Free shipping so I think I'm giving it a try. I'm sick of digging through them and still getting ones I cant use.

Not sure how many other Canadian gals are following this thread, but I thought I'd post that Dollarama has the mini gel pens out with their school supplies now. 6 pens for $1. Pretty good deal! They also had some great new embellishments with their craft supplies. I got rhinestone letter stickers and a bunch of lace trim.

Thanks Linda. I was hoping it was a week special. I am still out of town visiting my daughter and not sure we will get back to her staples today. Going home tomorrow and will check mine. Does everyone get the differant colored mini gel pens or just black. The only ones I have seen 6 for $1 are the multi colored ones. I would like some mini pens in just black at a good price. Has anyone found mini pens in just black at a good price?

Let us know how you like them if you try them. I still have 5 boxes I got at lowes a few months back to stamp. Has any one ever found round tiles? I have a couple large round stamps I wanted to try. I have seen some round coasters at craft show this spring and I think the sign said sandstone. The guy would demo them by spraying with a water bottle and the tile quickly absorbed the water. They were hand painted. Didn't think about asking him about the supplier at that time. Wish I had. They had a very smooth surface too. Would love to know more about them.

The pegboard I used was very sturdy. I don't really know how my husband made it...but I was not at all worried about it falling over. The magnet board he made me had very heavy wood and it's not going ANYWHERE! I can barely lift the thing. Maybe that's the key, is to use heavier wood? I will ask my husband. Feel free to ask me again if I happen to forget! LOL And, wow, I guess I should feel lucky that we got two tables in what I considered a "small" show!

I would love to try round ones too! I've not seen any, though.

I have a question. I stamped on the tiles with stazon, colored with sharpies, baked at 350 for 15 minutes, for my last batch. I wasn't going to spray them, because I thought they would be more absorbent, but when I tried one out--THE INK RAN!!!! So I did end up spraying them with Krylon. Anyone else run into these problems? And what kind of paint are they using to hand paint them? I'm curious too!

I have a question. I stamped on the tiles with stazon, colored with sharpies, baked at 350 for 15 minutes, for my last batch. I wasn't going to spray them, because I thought they would be more absorbent, but when I tried one out--THE INK RAN!!!! So I did end up spraying them with Krylon. Anyone else run into these problems? And what kind of paint are they using to hand paint them? I'm curious too!
I always stamp with staz on and color with chalk and blender pens and a coat of polly spray,...no run and no complaints!!

Which ink ran the stazon or the sharpies? Or was it an interaction between the two? Last year I followed the instructions on Gina K on stamp tv from a link I found on this site. No baking and no spraying anything on it. Then she stuck one in a bowl of water to show it doesn't run. I believe it was all done with stazon and that is what I used on mine. The only thing I did differant from her video was dry the surface of each tile after stamping for about 20 seconds with my heat gun to make sure the ink was dry and then let them sit over night. The next day I rubbed them hard with a wet soft wash cloth to test them and only got a little ink residue off but no running of colors. Half I left natural and the other half that I colored I used stazon and used qtips to color. I also did multi colored fall leaves on a bunch and had no problem with them either. There is a picture in my gallery. I just bought a 24 pack of sharpies to try for this year for adding color but may still just stay with the stazon for coloring if you think the sharpies were the problem.

I made tiles last year for Christmas and used both Stazon and sharpie and had no problems with either. I did let them dry overnight between stamping and coloring in the images and than let dry overnight after coloring....you can't rush this at all or it will smear. I've have found tiles at Lowe's with no problem either, I think that thread/post was from 18 months ago.

I got some on this site when we could do bulk buys BUT when I go to restaurants, I grab what I can off the table. My family just hands them to me these days (sometimes brothers throw them at me from across the table but those are brothers!). Save up your cereal boxes too, cut them 4x4, round the edge and those will work too, even the thinner cardboard that come with SU!'s designer paper will work (for the calendars or whatever).

This is good to know as I was really excited about all the differant colors of sharpies I just got. One more thing I did before even stamping on the tiles was to clean them very well with cold water and rub with a soft wash cloth to get off the white dust residue on each one and then let them dry overnight before I even stamped them. If you don't prep them first that might be why there could be a problem with bleeding of colors.
