Alex Crafts Winter is is full swing here in New England, and if you have young kids, that means lots of indoor time to stay out of the elements and stay warm. In our house that means extra time reading books, building towers, baking goodies and of course crafting. I’ve read a lot about the new subscription kids craft services such as KiwiCrate or even the local-to-me Create Abilities , which mail you ready to go kids crafts every month with everything you need included. These seem like a really fun idea and a great way to get some “good mail” in your mailbox instead of all that junk and bills!
But for those days when you just need something on hand, and fast, Alex Crafts are the way to go.  → Read more

Print Your Own Holiday Cards and Photo Birth Announcements

sweet cricket design chevron christmas photo card

When new clients check out my Etsy shop, they get so excited about the printable baby announcements, printable invitations, and photo cards they see and love the idea that they can work one-on-one with me to tweak the colors, fonts, and really customize each design to make it their own unique card.

While I do offer professional printing services, a good portion of my lovely clients prefer to print their own photo cards, but it can be a little intimidating / overwhelming to them!  They have lots of questions about where to do it, how to do it, where to purchase the envelopes and what size.

I have a wonderful (and affordable) option for those looking to print baby announcements, invitations, or any other card design that I create for them.  Follow the easy steps below to have your cards printed through Snapfish, on either photo paper or card stock, with envelopes included (and even a coupon code for 30% off at the end of the tutorial!) → Read more

Lawnmower Birthday Photo Invitation

I was so excited to hear from a favorite client, A from Canada, when she initially contacted me about her ideas for her son’s upcoming birthday party a few months ago.  The title of her email to me was “Funny Request” and I just knew before I even opened up the email that this would be a fun, challenging, and special project.

A’s son is obsessed with all things Lawnmower.  Not ride-on mowers, not John Deere, but push mowers and all things lawn care.  So we collaborated to create the perfect custom invitation for this Lawnmower themed birthday party: → Read more
