Celebrations New Location Grand Opening!

Join us at Celebrations this Saturday, 8/31 for their New Location Grand Opening! They moved two doors down the hall. Now, they are right next to Ben Franklin Crafts Mapunapuna!

I'll be there from 10 am - 12 noon to help you make your own origami card case! We'll be using one of Celebrations' specialty wrapping papers to make this easy and useful little card case. I like to use these when I don't want to carry a bag, like at carnivals and concerts.

It has four pockets, two on the inside to hold your ID, credit cards and cash! And, two more pockets on the outside that can hold club cards, stamps cards and business cards.

They'll be lots of fun going on with in-store specials and prize giveaways, too. Plus, my make and take is FREE! So, I hope to see you there!

August's Second Joy of Crafting Show

Summer is ending soon, but the fun crafting continues! On this episode, we introduce a new friend and some favorite friends return with great craft ideas!

First, we welcome to the show, Alyson "Ally" Turner from Mapunapuna Ben Franklin Crafts and she has a really fun and clever project! Making bracelets from jumbo craft sticks! Ally shows us this wonderful technique! You can use a lot of different things to decorate the unfinished bracelet, too!

Then, Jenny Floro shows us how to create the popular ombre look with our new Vintage glitter line!

Savannah from Celebrations is back with another great wrapping idea. This time she uses Flower Wrapper to create a cool juice can gift!

Lastly, I sneak in with a quick (don't blink!) burlap flower idea!

Hope you get a chance to see the show! Happy Crafting and enjoy the rest of your Summer!

New Joy of Crafting Show for August!

Hope everyone is enjoying the last days of Summer! Tonight, we have a new show for August and it's full of fun ideas!

I start off the show with one of my favorite new paints! Deco Art's Multi Surface paints are the perfect paint for a variety of projects. You can use the same paint on metal, glass, the name says, Multi surfaces! Plus, the colors are just fabulous!

Then, we have Savannah from Celebrations back to share some great ideas for pillow box decorating!

I couldn't wait for this next segment to air because it's all about Project Life! Not sure what PL is all about? Don't worry, I'll give you a quick overview and share one of my favorite weeks so far!

Lastly, we have a segment we taped earlier but didn't have enough time to air. Shane Hershey from EK Success shows us how to use the Circle Scissors Pro, a really easy to use circle cutter, as he makes paper fortune cookies.

Have you been watching the show lately? Noticed anything different at the end? Leave a comment if you do and let me know what you think, yah or nay. I'll reward one random commentor with a Ben Franklin Crafts Gift card for the help!

Hope you get a chance to see this show! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great week!
