Earlier this month one of my best friends had a birthday, so I whipped her up a quick card for the occasion!
I used the same concept that I did for the Valentine’s Day Cards that I made, except I stitched a heart around the word “birthday” this time.
The stitched heart was also on the inside of the front cover, so I colored it in really quickly and wrote a simple message.
I love how it turned out!
Today I wanted to share some Valentine’s Day cards that I made, just in case you were still looking for some V-day ideas!
What do you think? It was such a quick and easy project, and I love how the cards turned out!
To make these quick and easy cards, all I did was cut out a 3″x3″ square from a dictionary page and a 3″x6″ strip from red card stock. I folded the red card stock in half to make my card, and then glued the dictionary page to the front.
I then traced a heart around the word that I wanted to feature, pierced my embroidery holes, erased the pencil, and stitched up my heart!
I love how they turned out! The card above will be for B (notice how it also says Yorkshire Terrier? That’s a little homage to our dog Basil!) These cards are quick, easy, and can be customized with any word in the dictionary! The possibilities are endless!
Happy Friday the 13th everyone! I hope that today proves to be extra lucky for all of you. I’ve been having a bit of luck with my Etsy shop, and I wanted to share some news with all of you!
First of all, I’ve put a bunch of new pencil sets in the store, including mechanical pencils!
Aren’t they cute??? In the picture they are wrapped in some security envelope patterns, but I am offering to wrap them in anything that I sell in my store. So that should be a fun alternative to the conventional pencil!
I’ve also added more book page pencils, including Pride and Prejudice, Moby Dick, and Twilight.
All of these were suggestions from customers, so I was really excited to add them to the store. I love getting suggestions on what people would like to see in my store, so if you have any definitely send them my way!
I also recently added some super cute pencils wrapped in vintage vocabulary worksheet pages.
I love these, and my cousin just ordered a bunch of them to give her school staff members as ‘welcome back’ gifts! Awesome!
And now for the BIG NEWS: my pencils are going to be sold in a retail store in Jackon Hole, Wyoming!!! Eeeeeek! The store is called MADE, and it looks so cool.
This is the kind of store that I love exploring, so I am over the moon that my pencils will be sold there. They found me through Etsy, and I could not be more excited! So I am busy busy busy creating 200 pencils for their store!
