H{ippity} Hop - Craft Fair Creations 1

I have always considered myself a cardmaker. I have mentioned in the past what a terrible scrapbooker I am. Perhaps it is the larger format or the overwhelming number of photos to choose from...I don't really know. I have also avoided the amazing altered items and papercrafted pretties that I have drooled over on SCS and blogs. 


Well, I'm here to tell you...I am hooked on non-card creations presently. It all started with a package of jumbo paper clips from Staples that I purchased well over a year ago, which has been collecting dust until about...Thursday! My plan for my craft fair is to create with what I have in my ever growing stash. As I unearth more I will post additional creations using these items. Since today is all about {ippity} I have posted these fun paperclip bookmarks using some of my favorite {ippity} stamps.(To avoid purchasing chipboard for the butterflies, I used the old standby of cereal box cardboard...how green of me.)

Stay tuned for more...who knows, I may actually have a post every day this week! (A few hints...vintage tags, altered pens, Beate's nifty corner bookmarks, something in a frame, notepads, clothespins...)

Stop by this week and leave a comment on my "craft fair creations" to win some of this week's beauties!

I will also be putting some of the creations on the bare shelves of my Etsy Shop this week.
