I’ve been pretty busy lately getting ready for my first craft show in October. (So excited!!) Unfortunately, the Fresh blog was also infected with the malware problem I had recently over here at High Cotton and it’s a mess right now and taking a lot of my time to sort out. (But the Storefront is still up and as full of fresh, funky, fun as ever!)
But I’ve been splitting time between sewing and papercrafting.
Notice all the Wisteria purple?! I’m still crazy about that new color and about the ruffled ribbon. I’ve almost used up a whole roll now. I’ve taken to doing sets by keeping with the same papers, stamp set, and accent group for each card, but then they’re all a little different.
I’m trying to use prepping for the Show as a way to gussy up all these supplies sitting around my workshop into something beautiful and meaningful. So I’m forcing myself to use up what I have laying around. (If you’ve seen my workshop, you know that it’s not nearly as difficult and self-sacrificing as it sounds.)
I’ve also done some paper-covered journals (along with some of our fabric covered journals, and I’ve got gift tags on my to-do list too, before I head back to my sewing machine.
But here’s a couple questions…
How many notecards would you like to have packaged together if you were buying them?
I’ve been doing sets of 3 because they’re also the perfect size for a small gift to someone, but I wonder if 5 would be better.
And, how would you like to see them packaged if you were at a booth to purchase them?
Would you like to be able to look at them and see what all the different designs are? Would you care what the envelope looked like, or more what the card looked like? Or would pretty packaging catch your eye more than visibility of the individual items?
I’m still on the fence for the card sets with this one. I’m trying all different kinds of package and haven’t hit something I think is “just perfect” yet, so if you’ve seen something you thought was awesome, let me know!
