Innisfail Craft Fair

I had a fantastic time at the Innisfail Craft Fair!

The Innisfail Lioness Club done a wonderful job organising and directing this fair! Well done to them 🙂

 I was a bit busy to pop around to have a look at all the stalls but what I could see from my stall was very impressive.

 I had some family and friends come from the Tablelands and Cairns with their families to have a look and support my first craft stall. Thanks so much to those very special people.

 I had a ball on the day but looking back I will change my stall set up next time. Not that I wasn’t happy with how I went. It’s just now I’m thinking my stall was so busy. I think people got lost with what I had on display.

I really need to get my hands on a card rack to free up table space. all in all I was happy with my efforts!

I have been asked what sorts of things I had on display and for sale, so I thought I would share the list on here.

Please keep in mind everything was made using Stampin’ Up! materials, cardstock and Designer Series Papers

  • Cards
  • Decorative stationary and note pad kits
  • Card pack folders
  • Christmas tag bags
  • Decorative chocolate blocks
  • Pudding wraps
  • Paper bags with sticky notes and matching pencil
  • Decorative lollie bags
  • Bird huts
  • Baby booties
  • Hair bands
  • Rag bag

The list goes on and on

Here are some photos (my mum was not happy to be in the pic lol)



I had a wonderful day! And who knows I might hold another stall soon?? Thanks to all that came and gave support. I loved all the hellos and those that had a go and made a tag at my stall on the day 🙂 Wishing you all a creative, happy and fun weekend.

Cheers Carmel 🙂

Hair flower clips and bands

I thought I would share with you all a little project I have been working on. Hair flower clips and bands. I made these using my big shot, #2 circle die cut and some fleece. I have made quite a few but I won’t share them all on this post.   

For now I will only post a hand full of what I have done. I’m not sure yet but if I work up the courage I ‘might’ sell them at the Innisfail Craft Fair. Not sure yet!!

 Well i hope you’ve enjoyed looking at my newest craft project. I would love to know what you think of the clips and if you think they are worth trying to sell at the craft fair.

Thanks my friends, hope you’re enjoying your weekend!

Happy creating 🙂  Carmel

 I am an admiring wife to a wonderful husband, a proud mum to my 18month old son, and an inspiring Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator living in the Wet Tropics (Cairns).

Each day I start my day off with a mental list of what house chores need doing, but I am often side tracked and can be found trying to create something amazing.
Needless to say I am in a mad rush at the end of the day, hehe.

Being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is so rewarding. Not only do I get to be creative every day, I also get to be a creative coach, offering fresh project ideas and encouragement to my customers and friends.

For me, helping someone create that perfect project for a special occasion is the best feeling in the entire world. After all, creating cards, scrapbook pages, and gift items is about more than just stamps and ink—it’s about sharing a part of yourself with the people you love.

So come join me, let your creative side run wild.
