Graduation time is upon us again and it’s time to get the invites out. I just posted a couple of invitation/announcement ideas on the Etsy site. Check them out, let me know what you think, and if you REALLY like them, place an order. These also don’t have to be for graduations they can be for ANY event. All text can be customized. A custom card is $5 and I can have it done that day typically!!!
Click on the photo below to go to the Esty Site to see the listing.
Yes that’s Channing Tatum in the first card, I didn’t want to pic somebody’s random senior picture. I thought that was wierd so from now on I am using celebrity pictures in all of my photo cards!
As I am trying to use up my vast amount of supplies and trying to come up with some new things so that I can perfect them and list them on the Etsy site. ———> Link on the right!!! You will see below that I created 3 cards that I am trying to just get the ideas out there and testing some new ideas. Would love feedback on any of them.
Here is an Easter card I came up with. The point was to have a sunrise in the back the crosses and He’s risen are printed on velum and then I made a border. They are put on a 4×6 card with foam squares to give more depth.
the background could maybe use some work but you get the idea. I have more ideas for this one and will work on other variations.
A sympathy card that I made for the Mother-In-Law. I wanted to use the velum again and was trying to figure out the best way to keep it muted!
I made the grey background out of the shimmery sliver paper. I cut the velum long so that it would wrap around the sides so that I could secure it in the back. I then added a boarder which luckily fit. It wasn’t exactly planned when I made the “with Sympathy” and then added bling embellishments on the sides. This card ended up being extra special for my mother in law because the flowers for Nana’s funeral were all White and Red, which I didn’t know. Intuition at it’s finest.
Super simple Easter card. This is what happens when you only have an hour to make 3 cards.
I used my favorite new tool, my sizzix bigkick, to create the letters in various colors. I wasn’t even going to attempt to try to make them straight so I deliberately made them whimsy. Added a flower and some bling embellishments and off we went.
Hope you liked these card ideas. There will be more to come as I come up with ideas and please go and check out the Etsy site for all your invitation needs. Prices for digital cards are just $5 and I have them done in less than 24 hours!!!
Trying to find that one thing that is going to drive a new business is difficult. I was so excited about my Jersey invites, but it’s almost too much of niche market. So I started building my Disney collection of invites and what better way to promote my business than to have a line of Frozen invites. After all, it is the highest grossing Disney movie of all time 🙂
Here is the collection. Each photo is hyperlinked to the listing in my Etsy Store. www.etsy.com/shop/WarmTidings
All invitations can be customized. Do you like an element from one but would like it on another? No Problem. Want the font changed? Easy. Please share with anybody you know that is a huge fan of the movie.
Also, these can be invites for ANYTHING. It could be a frozen movie party. Also I could take out the wording and add pictures as Thank You notes for the Frozen birthday party. The sky is the limit!!!!
I hope you like them.
Stay tuned for the rest of the week for more card ideas, non-digital this time 🙂
Ok trying to get a family picture with a 2 year old and 2 parents and have it come out good seems impossible sometimes.
With the help of my father in law taking the pictures and a little help from my photo editing software we have a great picture where we all look great!!!!
Awesome family picture!!
For all my photo editing needs I use Panstoria’s Historian, or Memory Manager as formally distributed by Creative Memories. I love being able to organize my picture and edit and easily get them back out so I can post places like this!!!!
Happy April Everybody!!!! Hopefully spring actually be here soon. At this rate we might just go right into Summer. Here is a simple idea that I came up with over the weekend. I am very into couponing right now and it’s awesome because let’s face it Coupons are basically free money. They can be pain and time consuming but if you make it part of the grocery list process it’s totally worth it.
I had been using Envelopes for my coupons, I write my list on the outside and put the coupons on the inside and off to the store I go. But now I have no envelopes left. So I am going to use the large amount of Cardstock that I have right now Shameless plug alert: Check out my site WarmTidings for my awesome cards and invitations – there’s a link to the right too ——>
Ok back to the project….
Take your normal 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper
Fold in half a staple (or tape) the sides
Now you have a front and back to write you list on
An an opening for all of those coupons
It’s a super simple project and then that way you have everything in one spot, you are organized and then not fumbling while at the store.
Have a great day everybody, see you later in the week for ideas and projects. Hoping to get some more things posted to the Etsy site later this week.
