This is the aftermath of Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire 2013. I haven't been back in my craftroom since yesterday. I've been catching up on things like showering and sleeping lol. The cutting board is what I use for heat embossing and shrinky dinks (holding it down with a paper piercer while I heat it with a heat gun). The styrofoam was standing in for my missing poking pad. I finished all 10 projects, some of my results were "ehhh" but I was pleased to have done them all.

My favorite challenge was the Scent-sational challenge (complete with the instructions). Make your own scratch and sniff pieces (I used cherry kool-aid on the cardstock buttons, but the possibilities are amazing, coffee, chocolate, ginger, basically any powdery smelly thing that doesn't have sugar and clear embossing powder.

This is my favorite card from the bunch (the rolled dough challenge). The challenge was to make a die-cut embellishment from paperclay. The matching dies and stamps were from Papertrey Ink's Simply Jane (even the background stamp and inside sentiment).

I did well at the fair this year, my embroidered nametag got a blue ribbon in the non-wearable handspun category.

My seahorse card got 3rd place.

If you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground. You can peer at crafty spaces around the world. Take a picture of your own and join in the fun : ).

Well look at you! Haven't seen you post this early since I don't remember when (grin).

Thanks for explaining how to make the scented card. I might have to try that one of these days. And I loved your tag, too.

Happy WOYWW from # 2.

BTW, I've never worked with paper clay, just the poly kind you have to bake. This looks like fun.

I heard about that after the fact by a fellow blogger. I must check it out next time! Your work is all lovely. I am a big fan of the dough cameo piece, as I love that set and use it all the time for my Jane Austen group gals cards etc. I can see why your seahorse got a place as it is so charming! Winnie#84

Love the variety. Go you on your fair placements. I use to love entering the fair. They're not as 'fun' around here as what I'm used to from IL so I just don't play anymore. Like I'd have time! LOL

Haven't seen anyone use the grocery product scenting in a long time. Thanks for bringing it back around. Creative Blessings! Kelly #107
