Orange Blog Hop - Fiskateer Fun

If you have come from MareBear Scraps you are in the right place.  This is a stop on the Orange Blog Hop where members of Fiskateers, a community sponsored by Fiskars, is sharing their passion for crafting.


For my project today, I wanted to share with you something special I'm doing for the Ohio Fiskateer Event. I'm hosting the crop and I've already got some supplies and decorations for the big day!
(Disclaimer: US of Fiskateers Parties are not going to include these bags, these are my special gifts to my guests for the Ohio Party)

  • I started with an orange fabric bag I found at my local craft store that was in the Halloween/Fall section.
  • A set of Fiskars Alphabet Stamps
  • My fiskars Stamp Press
  • and some Stazon Black ink
I lined my letters up on my stamp press but since i ran out of letters I had to stamp twice, once...

and then again to finish my phrase!!
Since this was my first try, it didn't turn out so great but since I will be doing close to 35 bags like this, I'll get plenty of practice.

I also wanted to share some sneak peeks of some other things I'm working for my crop!





Thanks for stopping by!!


Your next stop on the HOP is Lisa's Scrap Site
