Hello friends. Just a reminder that this Saturday, April 1 we will have the first ever Upcycle Art Fair at the Placita Santa Fe shopping center. We are having a tremendous response to this concept and have had to turn away many artists who wanted to exhibit. We hope this will mean more fairs in the future!
I will be selling vintage screens decorated with lots of different themes. This one is a favorite of mine because I designed it so you can insert your own photo into the frame. It's perfect for a new Mom or Grandmother.
I turned two frames into clipboards. This one features the new Dainty Faerie die from Memory Box. The entire collage can be removed and photos or other memorabilia clipped in its place.In addition to the vintage assemblage pieces, I will be selling greeting cards, Easter bags and candy boxes and business or note card holders. Here's a candy box I made with the Paper Smooches Bunny Card die featured in last week's blog.
I hope you will join us this Saturday. It will be great fun! And be sure to bring one of your own greeting cards which we will donate to the Rio Grande Cancer Foundation. They would appreciate cards with generic themes such as thinking of you, hope, florals, etc. If you donate a card you will earn a 10% discount on your purchase at The Stamp Act (excluding Vagabond and Stamp Perfect tools).
Hippity Hoppity, Easter's on Its Way!
We've got so many Easter papercrafting supplies including dies, stamps and papers. Here are some examples.
These first two cards are very quick and easy. I die cut the white cardstock with the bunny die and matted it on pink polka dot paper. The Hippity Hoppity sentiment is so cute!
This card is very similar in design. Don't forget to add a little pom pom for the "bunny butt!"
This card is a little more elaborate. Using Kitty's design, I created a little bunny scene in the square frame of the Massa Leaf Frame die, filling it with bunnies, Easter eggs, flowers and greenery. Such a pretty card.

Stop in soon and shop for your Easter papercrafting needs including bunnies!
And don't forget the Upcycled Art Fair at The Placita Santa Fe shopping center. It's Saturday April 1 from 10am to 5pm. Plan a day out with the girls (or guys) and see unique art created by local artists. See you there!
