Where Did the Summer Go? Sunflower Blendable Set Freebie

A recent trip to one of my favorite craft supply stores gave me a bit of a wake up call — summer is nearly over!

Now, I wasn't upset because yet another summer has passed and I haven't added flowers to my landscaping (trust and believe that ship has SAILED). I was confronted with the harsh reality that soon we'd be headed into full-blown craft show season. It's the crafting equivalent of getting caught with your drawers down. Yikes!

How did it manage to creep up on me again?

I hope that your creative plans are moving along nicely, and that you are ready to start whipping up layouts featuring First Day of School photos, lunch ladies in hairnets, etc. To help accessorize those photos, I've created a trio of sunflower blendables in the shape of LEAVES!

I am absolutely over the moon about these — and am so excited to share them with you. I hope you'll have fun working with them, and that you'll send me a note and share your photos!

If not, I may be forced to show up on your doorstep in a hairnet. And nobody wants to see that!

Vintage Floral Patterned Dress Form Tags - Free Download

This set of printable tags features the three "F's" — floral, feminine, and of course, FREE! The set is done in vintage prints that you are going to love!

What's not to love about the curvy silhouette of a dress form? I am a sucker for just about anything vintage anyway, but dress forms rank right up there with Belgian chocolates, and Mexican food (which may be why, incidentally, I don't have that same svelte figure myself....<<sigh>>).



Printable tags can be used in so many different ways:
  • Gift tags
  • Jewelry display cards
  • Journaling
  • Lunchbox notes
  • Price tags
  • Scrapbook layouts
  • Ornaments & more!
Enough talk — let's get to the good stuff!

Ooh la la! Romantic French-Inspired Printable Tags

Grab your berets and your passports, we're headed to the City of Lights!

Well, not literally.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love nothing better than to put that five years' worth of French classes to work for us. But sadly, I don't recall nearly as much as I'd like. And how far do you suppose we'd get with, "I really like those green beans," or "On what football team do you play?"

Yeah, that's what I thought, too.

Luckily, we won't need to rely on my rusty French skills to enjoy a bit of Paris beauty. I've whipped up a set of lovely rose tags that feature the iconic Eiffel Tower in the background, paired with a bit of vintage French ephemera, and some watercolor effects. They're pretty without being too "froufrou."

Hey! I guess I did remember some French after all!





If you are asking yourself, "Traci, what the heck am I going to do with these tags?" Let me offer some ideas:
  • They work great for your junk journals -- simply use the back side for journaling!
  • Gift tags are SOOOO BOORINNNG. Add some spice to those gift bags, baby!
  • Use them as price tags for your handcrafted goods at craft shows and fairs
  • Print them out onto shrink plastic (think Shrinky Dinks), and turn them into fun charms for necklaces, ornaments, or lamp pulls
  • Use them to decoupage onto flea market finds like vintage suitcases, dressers, tables or trays
If you want to use them as traditional tags, I recommend 100# weight paper. You may want to adjust your printer margins slightly before you print (all printers are different, so your mileage may vary).

All those ready to download, say, "OUI!"  -- Au Revoir for Now -- Traci

Gluesticks, Glitter and Paint...Oh, My! Happiness is Handmade FREE WordArt

Do you have a secret "happy place?" You know, somewhere that you just exhale, sit back and just smile when you arrive there? Most days I'd tell you that my happy place is sitting in my studio, with PhotoShop humming along, with 15 or so windows open. But, coming in at a VERY close second place would be the crafts aisle at Tuesday Morning. I swear I hear angels sing every time I walk in that place.

Give me an hour, a caffeine kick and an empty cart, and I will illustrate why craft shopping should be an Olympic sport.








Regardless of where you find your happy place, one thing all creative folks can agree on is that happiness is often handmade. Whether it is a dress you've sewn yourself, a piece of furniture you've refinished, an embellished handmade card, or the plaster of Paris handprint you made back in elementary school — nothing matches the joy of creation, or the pride of accomplishment of handcrafted goods.

This new wordart freebie celebrates all those who love to create. I'd love to see what YOU can create with it -- feel free to send me a note and share!  -- Traci

I love flowers, but have a black thumb...what's a girl to do?

Greetings from the Hoosier State!

My name is Traci, and I am so excited that Julie has extended me the invitation to share a bit of creativity with you! As the post title suggests, I am, in fact, a gal with a black thumb. I suppose that isn't completely true — as I can grow one mean dandelion. But I digress...

One way that I can indulge my love of flowers without sacrificing plants is to create them digitally. This way I can assure you that no plants were harmed in the creation of this FREE mini kit.

Not one single blossom.


So, let's get to it, shall we? This Magnolia Mini Kit is in honor of my gram, who was a flower whisperer. She was a true Southern lady — and I think this little set will do her proud. I simply can't wait to see what you'll create! Please be sure and drop me a note and share your masterpieces.
