Yup, you read that right…blank greeting cards featuring mini prints of my collages are are now available in my Etsy shop! Two different sets of cards with envelopes are available – one with sweet and encouraging quotes, and one with awesome scripture verses. They’re printed on super yummy ultra premium professional heavyweight matte paper, and the prints are so rich and gorgeous! (I’m thinking of switching to matte paper for all my art prints now, instead of the luster paper I’m currently using.)
And as a thank you to YOU, my awesome supporters and friends, I’m offering free shipping on anything in my shop until the end of the year with code HAPPYHOLIDAYS2011. US pals, there’s still time to order for Christmas! Cards make a great gift. Just sayin’.
After a summer hiatus (read: my entire studio was packed up in boxes while we were away for two months and then moved to California) I’m so excited to be re-opening my Etsy shop! Not only are original commissions available (using your favorite quotes or photos) but there are also tons of great affordable art prints at $18. And greeting cards will be available soon…stay tuned!
As a thank-you to my lovely readers, I’m giving away one print of your choice from my shop! There are two ways to enter (feel free to do both!):
1. Leave a comment below and share your favorite quote – is it a song lyric? Line from a poem? Quote from a movie? Something funny that your best friend said?
2. Tweet about the giveaway using this link (and leave a comment saying that you tweeted it).
The contest will close Friday September 2 at midnight PDT, and the winner will be announced Monday September 5. Ready? GO!
Remember that time I made a sweet iPhone case, and then told you that I’d share a tutorial so you can make your very own? Well, here it is! (Weekend project, ahoy!)
Step 2: Trace the inside back of the case and make a cardstock template. Or if you’re lucky like me, your phone will just come with a faux cardboard phone that’s already the correct size.
Step 3: Find some cool scrapbook paper, magazine pages, or the like. Trace your template onto the neato paper, and cut it out. (I cut out a few different options – I like variety!)
Step 4: Slip your cut-to-size paper into the case to make sure it fits. Trace the hole for the camera (every phone case is different) and very carefully cut it out. I used a small craft knife. Or rather, I should’ve used a small craft knife – I actually used an obscenely large utility knife because it was all I had available. Learn from my mistake.
Step 5: Pop your paper insert into the case, snap the whole thing on your phone, and BAM! DIY style.
Happy August 1st!
