DIY Birth Announcement!

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

It’s a girl just born a few hours ago!   Our 5th grandchild!   This little announcement gave me instant gratification!  Anyone can go out and purchase a gift for a newborn however I opted to personalize my gift with a custom birth announcement that Emily can hang on her bedroom wall!

I used the fabulous Deutica  Mandolyn font styles to create the message and created the boarder from some of my original artwork!  I think my Daughter-in-Law will be pleased!

I’m in the Garden—Spring is here!

Friday, March 30th, 2012

So now that most of us are noticing that spring has sprung—I decided to make this fun little sign to let my  friends know that “I’m in the Garden”.

To make this—I created the floral art with my original artwork in Photoshop then typed in the words using Duetica’s fabulous font system.  This particular font is called “floot”.  Isn’t it a fun font!

Easter Table Inspiration

Monday, March 19th, 2012


Need a quick idea to spice up your table this Easter?  No matter if you’re serving breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, this idea will spread a happy message to your guests.

I’m serving breakfast this Easter and thought it would be fun to “doll up” my egg holders with some Duetica Fonts.  So I got on my computer and overlayed  two layers of fonts (see below) to give it a little more depth.  Once you print it out and cut it to size,  secure it to the egg holder.  This same idea could be used for napkin rings, coasters and more.

Chalkboard China Love Note

Monday, February 13th, 2012

This months Duetica Font project is all about chalk!    Say what?  Yes chalk!   I printed out the words:   Love is all you need.

By using several of Duetica’s Mandolyn font styles I added some of the swirls on a few of the letters for a little bit more pizzaz.  I then rubbed chalk onto the back side of the paper and traced it onto one of my new favorites finds “Chalkboard China”.    

 This dinner ware is so darn cute and comes in a variety of styles from plates, glasses, vases, etc.   For the Chalkboard vase, I doodled some half circles to create a different look although you could always write another love note on it!

What a clever way to tell someone you love them in a very special way.  More love notes coming your way  on V-Day!

Hostess with the Mostest Gift Idea

Thursday, January 12th, 2012


So your husband calls you up to say we have a party to go to “tonight”.  It’s 5 pm and you need a hostess gift and oh by the way—–hubby forgot the name of the wife of his buddy who’s hosting the party.  

Well here’s a simple and fast way to wow your hostess (even if you don’t know her name)  with a quick and simple customized label (even if you don’t know her name).


I always like to keep an “emergency” bottle of nice wine for a hostess gift  just in case we get a last minute invite.  So all I did was use Duetica’s  Mandolyn font system—and jazzed up the “H” in hostess for a eye catching label any “H”ostess would love.   Then to top it off, I adhered some pretty ribbons to give it a finished look!

And now I have a wonderful gift I’m sure she won’t forget (even if it’s just another bottle of wine).

Saturday, December 17th, 2011

Get the scrapbook papers out and crafts some cones!  And that’s just what I did for our family Christmas gathering.

I like fast and easy projects when I’m getting ready for the holidays. All you need is:

  • 10 x 1o inch squares of scrapbook papers
  • glue dots
  • odds and ends of greenery
  • white card stock (for the labels)
  • Duetica Mandolyn fonts
  • Kettle or Pop corn (or other yummy delight)
  • Sizzix die cutter and Die # 656537

Shape the paper into a cone and glue to secure.  Print out you labels then cut them out using the Sizzix die cut.  Adhere some greenery to the label then adhere the label to the cone!  Tah-Dah!  You’re done!

Happy holidays everyone and stay inspired!

Here’s a simple way to tell someone you love them!  In this project I used Duetica fonts placed in the center of some of my original artwork.  To pop out the print, I double matted it in aqua and black.
