And while I'm still up there in the crafting clouds, I thought I'd share with you the gifts I made to take up there with me.
I found these cute little black buckets in the Dollar Spot at Target. I scooped us as many as they had (sorry for anyone shopping at Old Spanish Trail!) and cut out the CTMH logo in white vinyl. Everyone got one as a table gift, filled with chocolate!
My next table gift was super simple to make. I bought an 8 pack of Sprite and had my boys take off the labels. Then I used the Magic Potions stamp set and Artiste cartridge to make these potions labels. I cut White Daisy cardstock according to the size on the stamp carrier sheet, then cut another shape just 0.25" larger with Black cardstock. Taped those two pieces together, then used packing tape to put them on the bottles.
I had so much fun making these washer necklaces for my Convention roomie gifts, I knew I had to make some for my Stamp Camp friends, too! I did stamp the back with "Stamp Camp 2012", but didn't get a shot of it. Everyone loved theirs (I think!) and wore them all weekend!
These next gifts were made for our gift exchange. We all brought 3 gifts and randomly got to choose from them throughout the weekend.
These little jack o'lanterns were made with two glass candle holders I found at JoAnn's. Buy 1 get one 50%...not a bad deal! I used some acrylic paint and Elmer's glue, mixed together, to paint the inside of the holders. Then I cut the pumpkin faces with black vinyl and the Artiste cartridge. Put in some battery operated candles...no fire hazzard!
I love this next gift! I saw a similar saying on a seamstress's wall...somewhere in the blogosphere. I adapted it for scrappers and cut it out with vinyl. I put a sheet of Florentine paper in the frame, but it can easily be swapped out for a different look.
This gift was my favorite though. For obvious reasons!! I'm going to have to go back to JoAnn's and get me a box of my own to decorate!
And I got some pretty great things in return as table gifts and exchanges! I'll have to share those soon!
