New Flower Planter - Love Black & White!

I love most things that are black and white and irregular dots are one of my favorite patterns. I fell in love with this planter my sister, Diana, bought me from Anthropology.
I filled it was some assorted pink flowers...
And then I thought it was still missing something, so I embellished her dress.
I'm really happy with how it came out. Thanks Diana for thinking of me when you saw this!

And speaking of my love for black and white. I just put out my new polka dot rug I got from our sample sale awhile back and a new blanket I picked up from Target this weekend! It's so fun hunting for new black and white items for my home.

Have a great week!

Lots of New Paper Dolls & Bday Celebration

This was what was on my craft table these past few weeks... 
Blythe dolls looking over my paper dolls. I've been on a roll and painted 50+ faces...
cut them out and dressed them. Making their dressing is probably my favorite part, I feel like a clothes designer - haha.
Not sure what to make these into yet, but it sure has been keeping me busy. 

We did use some of them this weekend to decorate my sister, Maryl's bday table.
Happy Birthday Maryl!
We made Anna Griffin box cards as our craft project for the event. We added some of our own elements, Catherine Moore and Tim Holtz images.
It was a great day being with my five sisters!
Hope you had a great weekend!

Selling My Own Stickers

As you might have read in my last post, I took a great class from Mindy Lacefield on how to make your own stickers, washi tape and pouch using your own art work. Well, I got my first product back - Stickers!
I have two sizes, 5"x7" and 8.5"x11". On the smaller sheet, the doll heights are about 3" tall and 1" wide. On the larger sheet, the doll heights are about 4" tall and 2" wide. The paper has a matte finish and good weight to it. I really love how they turned out!

Here are some projects that I made with them...
Mini Note books
Cards (using Target $1 Spot blank cards)
Decorated Monthly Planners

I'm selling these sticker sheets if you're interested in purchasing them. For the 5" x 7" - $7.00 + shipping and the larger ones: 8.5" x 11" - $10.00 + shipping
Message me if you want one:

They're so fun to play with. If you look close, I've added additional elements to a few of them - so you can personalize it with your own touch. 

Hope you're having a great week!

Creating My Own Washi Tape, Stickers & Pouches

Happy New Years! I'm starting off the new year by taking this fun on-line class from one of my favorite artist, Mindy Lacefield, "Create Your Own Washi Tape, Stickers & Pouches".

I have so many of my doll designs that I love to repurpose into other product, so this class was perfect for me.

I've already ordered a couple of pouches, here's a proof of one of them. This design is vertical, my other design is horizontal - I'm still experimenting with the product layout.

I've have an order for 50 washi tapes with 14 of my doll images being produced...
And 20 sticker sheets on order - 2 designs, here's one of the sets...
If you ever wanted to create some of your product, I recommend you take this class, it's been so fun! If you're interested in buying some of my merchandise, then stay tuned - I should have them in stock in about 4 weeks. I'm so excited to see them.
