For the love of dogs

We've all got pets that we love to pieces and why not represent those family members on our shirts?

I created the sweatshirt below for my cousin who has always owned beautiful German short-hair pointers and they are truly her kiddos.  She sent me the main design and I added the paw prints as extra details to represent her current 3 pups.

This little t-shirt I made as a valentines shirt for one of my nieces.  She has a dotson puppy and I wanted to make a shirt that she could wear other than just on the holiday to get the most use out of it. The writing is in solid while and the paw prints are made with black glitter to add a little bling.  

I hope you like these as much as I enjoyed hearing their excitement when they were opened.

Personalized Wine Glasses

Recently a lady at work retired after 28 years of service at my work.  The team put together a basket for her with tons of goodies that she always talked about.  She was constantly joking around about wine and her goofy sense of humor.  I knew once someone said they would buy wine for the basket, we had to make her some sort of glasses to add to it.

A little bit of background:  Melanie is very outgoing and loves dragons and Renaissance type decor.  At one point, she was telling us as a running joke in her family, they bought a life-size family of skeletons and place them in their friends and nephew's homes when they go to visit.  Through out the years,the skeleton family has grown to include a cat and dog as well.

I was scanning through some clip art trying to find a fun dragon image and the skeleton image came up.  It was a must use!  I was so excited.  I then went on a font website and downloaded a Renaissance type font to use for their names.  I really liked how they came out and she was over the moon excited about them when she opened up the basket.

Cards - 3D flowers and washi tape

Hi all, time for a paper project, since it's been a while :)
In October, I took a trip to California and while I was there, I attended a Scrapbook Expo and took some classes with my cousin.  We learned how to make these 3D flowers in multiple sizes.  I've been putting off playing around with them because that's just what I seem to do when I get a new product that looks intimating. haha.

It's pretty exciting to see what you can turn just a blank white piece of paper into with a few simple tools.

I made this Jaded Blossom card and accented it with some flowers that I made.  I really like the colors on this one.

 For this card, I tried a few different things that I've never used before on cards.  The flowers, 2 different sizes.  I like how the big one turned out because it's wrinkled, sort of adds a different type of dimension to it.  The purple and yellow background on this one is all made out of decorative tape placed on a white sheet of paper.  The tape is called washi tape and I have had a few rolls but never really knew what to do with them.  During the Expo, I took another class with my cousin that talked about anew line of product that was coming out and how to use them.

Hope you like them, I look forward to challenging my self with more new products soon.

Travel Make Up Bags

Today is a quick post, not much to say other than how much I love this project!!!

I've had this project in my mind for a long time and I'm excited that I finally got to put it together.

These are little 8"x4" zippered pouches that are perfect for travel items or make up to keep with you close by.  I have a million other designs in my head to make for them.  

I'd be happy to make other colors/designs on the bags too!

Work Out Shirts

Another post of fun shirts that I've been stacking up pictures of.

My cousins have kept me busy with some fun designs!  
I can't wait to do more of these.

This one wasn't a requested but it made for a perfect gift.
The pink Sweat and Wine are made of dark pink glitter and the wine glass is a black glitter.
Everyone needs to sparkle at the gym


Love how this one turned out too!!

Stay tuned for more down the road

Cowboys and Princesses

I have gotten more and more comfortable with making and designing shirts and am loving the outcome of all of them!

Around Christmas time when my mom was in town to lend a much needed helping hand for my craft shows, we played around with a few different styles and designs.  Here is the out come.

This little guy was my mom's idea and we're in love with how he came out.
"Real Cowboy's Don't Take Baths"

This little one I've done on quite a few other projects but as soon as I saw this black glitter vinyl, I knew what needed to be done.  haha.

"Real Princesses Don't Kiss Toads"

I also made one with pink glitter and man has it been a hit!  Nothing says little girl like pink and sparkles.

These 2 are definitely keepers in my stash for the future.

I hope you like them!
