What's New from Studio 791

Springtime is upon us, and this Saturday I will have a booth at the Holy Cross Spring Craft Fair, in Springfield, PA.

This is my second craft show, following my November "debut" at the Mom-Hosted Holiday Bazaar.  I will be displaying some of the same kinds of crafts for sale, such as the popular Scrabble tile magnets (with lots of fun, new word choices available!) and jumbo embellished clothespins (with new paper tape designs!), as well as some new items, including embellished mini-chalkboards and stationery sets. 

Because I am so excited about my new stationery sets, I thought I would give you a sneak-peek at them on my blog today!
I think I am so excited about the sets because they incorporate all of the objects and elements that I most enjoy in my art and crafting--mail art, tag art, bookmarks, maps, graphic number and letter elements, stitched paper, postage stamps, and recycled art.
Each "Colorful Journey" Stationery Set includes 6 "Journey" gift tags, which are shipping labels embellished with a piece of map and a sentiment created with a Dymo label maker.  The tags are tied together with red and white baker's twine.  Some have simple sentiments like "XOXO" or "Miss You."  Other fun sentiments are "On the Road Again" and "Happy Trails."  Each set contains three tags with blue Dymo tape and three tags with red Dymo tape.
The stationery sets also include an Airmail Envelope Notebook, a paper tape bookmark, and a stitched card with an envelope.  I wish that I had taken photos of the stitched cards, but you can look at this previous post to see the kind of stitched paper I used to make them.
Also, the sets include one of my handmade envelopes with a stamped card insert, as well as a red "To/From" label to use with the envelope.
Lots of fun, don't you think?

I also spruced up my business cards to better reflect the spirit of my business, Studio 791, by adding a shipping tag and ribbon.
If you find yourself in south-eastern Pennsylvania this weekend, I hope you will stop by my table between 9 am and 3 pm!  I will be sharing a full report, of course, in the week following.

Wow!!! Those are fabulous. All the things I like too. California may be a little too far for me to make -- so, are you going to sell them through your blog? Because I'd like a set......

You've been busy! These look fantastic! My in-laws are in town this weekend, so I might just have to leave the little boys with the big boys, grab grandma, and pop on over!

Linda Jordan said...

I love the kits!! Those look like so much fun. I like the idea of using a label maker on the tags also, too bad I got rid of mine awhile ago!!

Karenann Young said...

These look really great! I'm sure you'll sell out!!!

Andria said...

Many thanks to everyone for their encouragement!

Tammy, if you end up conquering your turnpike fears, I'll be thrilled to see you. :-)

Ha ha, Pamela...I guess it WOULD be too much to ask you to fly out from California. I am hoping to get an Etsy store underway soon (one of my new year's resolutions!) so that I can make things available online.

I will love to see you there, Jen, if you can stop by!

I really appreciate all the kind comments on the stationery sets!

Hi Andria...good luck on your show this weekend!!! As far as oil pastels go...I do not like them for journal pages because you can't write over them easily...now I remember why I don't use them very often. I think if you were doing a piece on canvas you could use some oil pastles there without a problem.
