Basil & Violet

Basil & Violet

Ok, these fairies and the fairy community are growing at an exponential rate and I’m running out of room to store them! I’ve now got to come up with some ideas for fairy storage. Although that won’t be as fun, creative or challenging…it’s got to get done! Ha!

The Make Shoppe now welcomes: Basil and Violet!

Meet, Merrina!

Meet, Merrina!

The Make Shoppe welcomes, Merrina!

Just like all the other fairies previous to her, Merrina is made up of tiny natural wooden parts for her body that have been sugared with aqua/blue glitter and accented with glittery blue pieces for her sleeves and wings. A blue coiled crown sits atop her head as she rules her little wonderland world! Her eyes are hand painted and cheeks dusted with a light rose tint. Her beautiful dress is an arrangement of aqua + blue poinsettia floral petals! If you like peacock colors…she’s a perfect fit! She’s very tiny (about 4.5″) but so colorful she would brighten up the area she’s placed in.

Merrina and all the other Make Shoppe Fairy Dolls are perfect as gifts and can be personalized!  Please send me a message or visit Etsy if you’re interested in placing and order. Other colors also available!

Fall Inspired Cake and Dessert Toppers

Fall Inspired Cake and Dessert Toppers

Hey All!

So I was browsing around online trying to find get inspired to do some more crafts. I’ve made plenty of cards, scrapbooks and other crafty things but just needed something different this time to fill my curiosity.

Taking on elaborate and difficult projects are really fun but alot of the time to have to own all the equipment. That get’s pricey! I came across some pictures of crafty dessert and cake topper decor and thought i’d be nice to make some of my own. And now with Fall right around the corner I thought I should get a head start.
These Fall Inspired Dessert Toppers were very easy and more importantly…I had all the stuff. The designs and possibilities are endless so I highly encourage everyone to try this. Super fun!

Here are some helpful items you’ll need:

Circular Craft Punch
Fall Tree Craft Punch
Wilton Cookie or Lollipop Sticks
Double-Sided Craft Tape
An Assortment of Fall colored card stock
Optional Ribbon

The assembly is pretty self explanatory but I’d love to hear from you if you have any comments or questions! Oh! And don’t forget you can find me (and these) on Etsy

Oh deer…is it too early to post about Christmas???

Oh deer…is it too early to post about Christmas???

Hey Friends,

Wow…I can’t believe I’m already seeing items and promotions for the holidays. That’s nuts, right? I mean, when is it exactly appropriate to start the marketing and advertising for the seasons to come? Isn’t there a Fall between Summer and Winter?
I’ve also received a few orders for some holiday cards this early on! My customers usually just leave it up to me to design their cards and today…well did just that! Today’s mood was torn between still trying to enjoy summer but also realizing that the holidays are among us. So, feeling quite goofy, I designed this “oh deer,” card as a reflection of my mood. A bit too rebellious you think?

Who votes rebellious?

Who votes cute and playful?

Thanks in advance for your help and feedback!

From me to you…

Frog Card Evolution!

Frog Card Evolution!

Hey there Make Shoppers! As you all know, Father’s Day is this Sunday June 17th. Do you have a card ready for Dad? Well no worries because I’ll be sharing my Father’s Day card ideas with you!
As you can see in the featured picture all you need is some colored card stock and some basic punches to get things started. Try using your imagination to create certain shapes. For example, for the body of my frog I used a round circle, a heart shape punch for the legs and a maple leaf punch for the frog feet. Also, don’t worry about being too perfect…your card should have a handcrafted feel to it that Dad will love!
I would absolutely love to see your beautiful creations out there. So if you’ve made this card, email me a picture, PLEASE!  tutusmakeshoppe@gmail.com
