HandmadeMN Spring Market - Scrapbooks, Invitations, Photos, Cards and more...

by Rita Wetzel, RitasCreations and AndMoreBags

HandmadeMN is holding our first ever Spring Market on Saturday May 8! Over 40 artists and crafters will have booths set up at the Ballentine VFW in Minneapolis. We will have a wide variety of items for sale that day including jewelry, knitted and crocheted items, photos, paintings, notecards, quilted items, and much, much more. Between now and May 8 we will be featuring all of our artists participating in our Spring Market so tune back in often to see all that will be offered!

Today we are featuring some of our artists who use paper in their creations!

Natalie of Ju Ju Bee's Boutique creates beautiful Custom Scrapbooks, Paper Bags Albums, and Greeting Cards. This gorgeous "Queen Bee" Paper Bag Album is one of my favorites:



Courtney from Just Another Day designs Wedding Invitations, Save the Date Cards, Sketchbooks, Prints, and Flat Cards! Just look at this stunning wedding invitation:



At Scissor Savvy, you will find notebooks, sketchbooks, and journals that Gabby has made from old books. Wouldn't your budding artist love this sketchbook:



Erin showcases her artistic talent at Penguin Palace Photography. All of her photos are personally signed! And don't we all wish that our gardens would have these vibrant yellow flowers blooming at the moment!



Mary of Mary Foster Creative is another one of our HandmadeMN photographers. Did you know that she grows the flowers that you see in her photos? This stunning Lemon Lime Amaryllis is so very beautiful!
