Gosh, I’m so tired right now. I’ve been getting so many orders and I’m so excited about that! Even though getting orders back to back means my work hours turn from 8 hours a day to 18 hours a day, it’s still super fun—tiring but fun. One of the #1 seller’s in my shop at the moment is my Hipster Snowman Card set. I wanted to make a set that wasn’t too expensive because I know that handmade holiday cards can sometimes be expensive; namely because us card makers put tons of details into some of our cards. However, with this card I wanted something cute, sweet, and affordable. So, I made this card a single layer, with light coloring, and simple paper piecing. I’m so in love with it. I ended up making 200 of these cards in less than 24 hours—and I couldn’t believe I did it. My neck and hands were go mad at me after that, hehe. As a matter of fact they still feel mad at me right now, haha! Well I’m hoping to get more orders for these soon. This years’ Christmas season has been so good to me; and, it’s not even December yet. I’m so grateful.
I also decided to change up my thank you packaging labels for the holidays. This time around I changed the ‘Thank you’ sentiment for the ‘Thanks’ text bubble sentiment. I love these sentiments so much because you can’t buy these. These are free gifts you get when you purchase Lawn Fawn stamps, but you never know which one you’re going to get when you order. I remember when I got this text bubble stamp I was super excited—cuz I had been waiting for this one, hehe. I’m also using Kraft bags as envelopes for my card sets, then I add some red and white bakers twine, and matching red and white chevron washi tape. I love how this looks like a vintage package because of the Kraft envelopes. It looks so cute to me. To view the stamp sets I used for this thank you label click here, and here. To buy the same kraft bags I purchased you can find them here. How are you packaging this year?
After shipping all my orders for the day I was so happy to come home and see a couple packages waiting for me in the mail box. One of them was this super, super cute Lawn Fawn stamp set that I’ve wanted for some time now + this order came with a free Lawn Fawn button!!! I can’t wait to use it. I wish I could buy all the Lawn Fawn stamps at once—but I must control myself, LOL. I’m super excited to use these for Valentine’s Day cards. Yay!
