Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop Fancy Folds

Hello Kre8tors and welcome to another Blog Hop! We are hopping with the Ink. Stamp. Share. Blog Hop today and we have some very fun folds to share with you! Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the post and click that Next button when you’re done here to hop along to the next amazing project!

For my project today, I’ve decided to make a Half Easel Card. What I love so much about this fancy fold is that you have the large canvas of the inside card mat to play with, as well as a pop-up element to make the card a bit more… fancy!

I went with the Rooted in Nature stamp set because it had a large and interesting sentiment I could place on the right hand side of the inner mat, as well as an elongated image that is perfect for the narrow easel on the left.

Shaded Spruce, Soft Suede, and Crumb Cake are the perfect colors for this card! It can be both masculine and feminine, and there are so many design changes that could be made. This will work with a variety of different stamp sets. Use your imagination and show me what you come up with! Tag me on Pinterest, Instagram, or Facebook! @MKre8tions

Stamp Out Hunger 2016 

This year’s event was a success! We raised over $1200 and 1300 pounds of food! The door prizes were a big hit and the raffle prizes were great too! 

One of the raffle prizes was a night in a gorgeous hotel off the Pier and this basket full of goodies.    
Here’s the banner. 

  A quilt donated by my mother for another raffle prize. 

The raffle table. 

  One of the best prizes was this scrapbook tote packed full of awesome items!

If you’re in Oregon next April I recommend checking out this all day crop with make and takes and other amazing projects!


Simple yet versatile 

So I was playing in the craft room the other day and saw a card that inspired me to make this simple yet versatile design. It’s great for any occasion! Guys or girls, birthday to sympathy, just add a saying off to the right and you’re good to go!

Used a dark green card base, Crumb Cake for a second layer, Whisper White, then used three shades of green for the “brushed” background and stamped the pine from Lovely As A Tree. Added some twine and voila! Quick and easy card ready in minutes!

Order a set by contacting me! I can customize any order with quantity, sayings, or other cards or gift wrapping. Order a stationary set that includes a decorative box to house the cards and envelopes to give to a special friend. 


The Craft-In Craft Fair

Well, I participated in the first ever Craft-In at the Drive-In Craft Fair, unfortunately for me, it wasn’t too great. The show was a lot of fun, and there were some awesome vendors, but I think some of my products were a little too specific. Everyone that came by the booth kept picking up my roving and asking, “Oh, is this yarn?” ^_^ I politely replied, “No, but you can turn it into yarn.” They expressed how they could never be able to do that, and set it down and walked away. ~_~ But, that doesn’t mean that if I have the right audience, I can’t do another show! So bring on the Fiber Fairs!

Anyways, here are some pictures of the show. My boyfriend did a great job with the photos, as usual! ^_^ If you see any items that you absolutely can’t live without, check out these shops to find them! Melissa’s Kre8tions and Spinning Sisters
