Light bulbs going off as I test new ideas for Bloomingayl's craft fair shop. Two events in, and I'm working on small journals. The prototype I gave to Diane included a cute little bag of goodies; things bought and things made.
I love my cameo. I love print and cut files, some that I buy, more that I create using digital images. Right now I don't have the time to create my own drawings, so I rely on the art of a few digital artists who are okay with small amounts of S4H/S4O. My favorites, Paula Kesserling, found at The Lilypad and Manu and Courtney Designs at Scrapbookgraphics.com.
Another bit of personal info - I am a planner junkie. My go to planner is the Get To Work book from Elise Cripe. The 2017 book I just bought will be year number 3 using this format. As to what I use in my planner; I have in the past bought stickers, saved ephemera, invested heavily in Tim Holtz's Distress Markers and made the Sharpie fine point pen my go to for writing. As the planner craze has ramped up, I noticed that Silhouette designers were creating print and cut sticker files. A few of them have authorized commercial use. Thank-you to those folks. Along with the die cuts, these planner stickers will be featured in my goody bags.
I have 4 days to come up with this product line; first photo in this post is a page that I am printing and cutting with a cute Courtney Design doll featured at the bottom. The second photo is of a sticker sheet printed and cut to test how this innovative process works. These little books are going to be awesome fun.
Off to the creative races. . .In the words of Arnold " I'll be back" with the finished product.
