Photo Shoot

On Saturday I did a photo shoot with my cousin's 1 year old baby.  It was my first time doing portraits and he's 14 months old.  I was pretty nervous, but he did awesome and we had 5 child handlers for him and my 3 kids.  I dressed up my kids as well and finally got some decent shots.  They just will not listen to Mommy!  I don't have the pics of the 1 year old processed yet but wanted to share the pics of my kids.  Thanks for looking!

Caleb - 4
 Dakota - 3
David - 8
These are quick edits with Picnik which I just discovered thanks to my cousin.  For quick edits and effects it's wonderful!  I can't wait to play in Photoshop with these.  The sun was very bright for being 7 PM and it bounced right off the lake. 

And a bonus of Miss Dakota.  I was making sure the settings on my camera were OK and she said take a picture of meeeeeee and this is what I got.  Again, edited in Picnik.  There's a spot on her cheek and I want to get rid of the couch pattern in Photoshop.

Pineapple Recipe Box Custom Order

I had so much fun with this box!  She picked this pineapple and it was a bit of a challenge to get it transfered but with some transfer tape it worked perfectly.  Normally I decorate the cards with bits of patterned paper but she picked all solid colors.  I was stumped!  I made a stencil using the pineapple and the wonderful laides on my SCAL yahoo group gave me the idea to use a stencil brush.  I love how it turned out!  It took a bit longer than I'd like but the customer loved the photo so it's worth it.  Her initials are on the inside of the recipe box lid.  It's completely custom and I hope she loves it as much in person.

Branding Your Small Business

Branding is an important part of your small business.  Branding is the personality of your business, if you will.  Branding is more than your logo and packaging, it's what your company stands for and what it has to offer to your current and potential customers.  If you don't define your brand, your competitors will and it won't be attractive.  Focus on two or three things that your company stands for and make sure your customers are aware of them.

Are you eco friendly?  Tell your customers you use recycled or upcycled materials.  Tell them how you reuse clean mailing materials for shipping. 

Organic and vegan is another popular branding technique right now.  Soap and bath products and also clothing companies are becoming more eco friendly by offer vegan products.  Their consumers are seeking vegan products and most will only purchase vegan products.  Let your customers know often that you offer only vegan products and nothing tested on animals. 

Many small business owners mistakingly think their logo is their branding.  It can be a very small part of your branding in that it gives a visual image to associate with what your company stands for.  I hope that when my customers see my cute owl they think of cute, trendy, and high quality handmade items.  The owl isn't my business, but the owl is part of the look of my business and products. 

Your brand also reflects the one or few things you are good at.  If you sewed clothes, made soap, sold jewelry supplies, and fine art paintings your customers won't have one thing to think of when they think about your shop.  I'm not saying don't have just one product, but if you have too wide of a variety your customers might get confused about your brand.

I'm by no means an expert.  I'm learning as I go and sharing some tips with my readers.  If you have more to add please leave a comment.

Make Your Own Vanilla Extract Recipe

I love to bake, especially during Christmas.  I've always wanted to make my own vanilla extract.  Real vanilla is so expensive and, like anything else, I'm sure homemade is better.  Homemade vanilla extract also makes a great gift for just about anyone on your gift list.  It does take at least 8 weeks to make, so if you want make it for a gift you need to get started now.

I wish I had taken pics while I was making it tonight, but seriously it's so easy you don't need them.

Ingredients

2 cups of alcohol (rum, vodka, brandy)
6 vanilla beans

Cut vanilla bean almost to end with kitchen scissors or a knife.  Pour alcohol in glass container and put in vanilla beans.  Push them down so they are covered.  Store in a cool, dark place for at least 8 weeks.  Swirl it around every few days while it sets.

Tahiti grown vanilla bean

That's it!  How easy is that??  I used vodka because I had it and it's relatively cheap.  I've read on the 'net that rum or brandy give a different flavor, but I haven't tried it.

I paid $4 for 3 beans at Giant Eagle.  If you want really high quality beans you'll want to order them from the internet or go to a specialty store.  I've had good luck with Giant Eagle brand foods, and I wanted to get it started for my holiday baking.

I've also heard that after you use a little you can top it off with a little more alcohol and throw in a new bean every so often when the color starts to fade.  If you do it this way it will make the next batch so much cheaper than the first.  

If you've made it before please post your results!

New Recipe Boxes

I'm happy that my recipe boxes are selling well because I do enjoy making them.  I've gotten to play with some color combinations I normally wouldn't use in my personal scrapping.  Every time I've tried something new I've loved the outcome.  I've made some great boxes with some great ideas from customers.  I'm working on a really cool pineapple recipe box right now.  I'm excited to see it done. 

I recently found a source for wooden boxes at wholesale.  I really likes the look of them better and I think my customers prefer the wooden boxes over the paper mache.  These seal so nicely and have a great finish.  All of my premade ready to ship recipe boxes are in my Etsy shop.  If you'd like a custom box please email me.  I know it's hotter than heck outside and it's crazy to think of holiday shopping, but last year I was shipping these boxes until December 21st.  Right now I take about a week to finish one.  In October I imagine that will be more like 2 weeks if I am even doing custom orders then.  If you want one for a gift order early.  I will most likely be increasing the price on them soon as well.

Scrapbooking Before Cricut, Laptop

How did we ever scrapbook before Cricuts, laptops, and all the other fun toys we have now?? 

Last night I had a few hours to scrap.  I used my Cricut and SCAL for the title on the first page then I got a rush order for some plastic price tags so my Cricut was busy cutting for about an hour trying to get 200 tags done so I could scrap again.  I could have done my titles and die cuts in between loading sheets for the tags, but I really need to use up some supplies.  Sometimes using up supplies helps me get more creative.  No page sketches. No special die cuts.  No titles to cut.  Only things from my stash.  I got two page done before I was just too tired to go anymore. 

My stash has gotten out of control.  I feel an ebay destash lot coming on soon.  Then I can use the money to buy more! 

This week I blogged about using vellum on scrapbook layouts.  On the leaves layout I used vellum twice.  For the Shades of Autumn vellum title I used scrapbook pens on the back to match the colors of the patterned paper.  If you enlarge the photo you can see how smooth and muted it is.  I used Creative Memories vellum adhesive squares cut in half.,  They blend in better in person.  I don't know what is is about photographing it, but it always shows up more in a photo.  For the cute little saying I attached it to the yellow cardstock with eyelets.  I have gobs of eyelets and this seemed like a good time to use them.  I didn't attach it to the paper with the eyelets because I made my embellishments first.  I should have, but it glued down OK without.

For the ferris wheel layout I chalked the edges of the yellow with some orange.  Then I used a purple ink pad to edge them.  It looks great in person.  I have a set of chalk I never use so I thought it was time to dig it back out again.

The Diego Halloween page was very simple and I just used stickers from a Halloween sheet and from a Diego sheet.  I even found one that said Say Click!  How cute!

Using Vellum in Scrapbooking Tuesday Tips

Vellum was all the rage a few years ago and it's making a comeback for good reason.  It's versatile and fun to use in a scrapbook layout.  Vellum is one of the few embellishments that you can use in almost layout without all of your layouts looking the same.  You can do so many different things with vellum to change the look and feel of the page.

All of my scrapbook pics are on Flickr and I had big plans of reuploading the pics here.  Apparently you can't save a photo from Flickr (it saves as 1x1 pixel) so no photos.  If you're curious, you can see my scrapbook set on Flickr here.  

I love to tear vellum.  It tears so well and gives a new look and texture to the page.   When you tear it, tear really slowly  to make sure you don't tear into the picture or words.  You can tear even a small stripe from vellum.  You can see torn vellum here.

Vellum holds ink well.  I love to ink the edges either on a cut piece or a torn piece.  It really makes it pop on the page and works really well if you're attaching it to a light background.  An example is here

Vellum is great to draw on as well.  To keep the muted look, flip it over and use markers on the back side.  You can make a really custom embellishment to match your page perfectly.  Examples are here and here.  On Fabulous Fall I colored in the back side of the leaves and the page title to make it match my layout.  On the fishing page the sign post is a piece of vellum I used Creative Memories markers to color.

Think outside the box.  Just because a quote is laid out nice and centered on a page doesn't mean you have to keep it that way.  If I can't fit the perfect quote on my page I cut it up.  I cut up a quote on this page and centered it myself to get the effect I wanted.  On this page I used the cut up quote as a border for the whole page. 

I used vellum words to make tags on this page.  The patterned paper still peeks through to coordinate with the layout and I got the words I needed.

Attaching vellum can be difficult.  I like the Creative Memories vellum squares.  The disappear completely with CM vellum, but do show a bit under other vellum.  I've heard you can run vellum through a Xyron but I've never tried it.  I also like to attach vellum with brads and eyelets.  I don't have any pics of these layouts though.

Have fun with your vellum!  I hope I taught you some new techniques.

Sunflower Recipe Box

My kitchen is done in sunflowers so I am a bit partial to this!  I would have kept it, but my kitchen is more blue and yellow French country. 

This recipe box will hold 4x6 recipe cards and dividers.  I did not make dividers for it, but I can for an additional $5 for cardstock or $10 for chipboard.  I really like the coordinating patterns on this one.  I think it gives it a little interest.  I also like the black and brown together.  Normally I don't, but it really works here.

Available for $15 in my Etsy shop

Free Wedding Cake SVG Die Cut File

I made this wedding cake SVG for a custom order and we went with a different design so I'm offering this one to my SCAL buddies.  I think this would be so cute with some beaded lace or sequins or something sparkly!

This file is for personal and limited commercial use.  You may use the file in items for sale but you may not sell the file or die cuts of just this image or include this in a set of die cuts. If you do use it, I'd love to see a photo.  Please feel free to send anyone this link, but please don't send just the file.  I <3 comments :)

March Bulletin Board

 

This is the main bulletin board when you walk in my son's school so there's some pressure!  To give you some idea of how huDge it is, the shamrocks are 5" wide and the cloud is 2 feet wide!  I used my Cricut and SCAL to cut the shamrocks and each has the birthday kids' names and birthdate.  The pot of gold I made by printing part of a coloring page cropped to just the pot.  I printed it poster size across 9 sheets of paper.  I taped it together and cut it out and used that to cut out sheets of black paper taped together.  The gold I made out of 5" wide ovals. 
I really wanted a rainbow to connect the cloud and pot of gold, but I had no idea how to make one curve right that long.  I was going to use the ellison die cutter at the school to cut shamrocks out of different colors to make the rainbow.  Unfortunately their shamrock die was MIA and after my 8 year old stapled all the shamrocks on we didn't have room.

The center is an Irish saying I found for a birthday blessing.  Other than Happy Birthday I couldn't think of a cute title and I was TIRED by then LOL 

The flowers are from the George cart.  They were an afterthought but I needed something to fill in the space.  With a foot plus of snow on the ground we needed some remembrance of spring!

After last year I swore I wouldn't do it again and I'm saying it now but I'm sure I'll be back in about a year showing off pics of the new one!

Passport Cover Turned Notebook Holder

 
Turn this passport cover into a mini notebook holder!


 

The notebook is nothing more than a mini composition notebook!  They can be found at Target for about $1 and Walgreens carries them.  I'm not offering them because they are so readily available- and cheap!- but you can buy your passport cover from me and insert your own notebook.  It overlaps the edges a little to protect the corners and pages.  I might offer a closure at some point to protect it even more.  Too many other projects in the works :)  Even a rubber band would work great though!

Handmade Review Chrissy Chrissy on Artfire

First of all, how cute are these labels on tarts from Chrissy Chrissy?  The colors of the tarts are so yummy too!  She sells melts, voties, and tea lights.

I burn tarts while I'm working so I can light it for an hour and if I have to quit I can blow out the flame whereas a candle wouldn't burn right.  I also like changing my scent depending on my  mood and the season.  I picked these up from Chrissy Chrissy on Artfire and they are awesome.  I can get one full tealight out of 1 tart then I add another piece of tart for the 2nd  and 3rd tealights.  Sometimes I go to my cave and forget to light it because it already smells great just from the cold throw. 

Her melts are long lasting and strong but not so strong they knock your socks off.  She has a great variety of scents.  Her packaging is so cute they are ready for gift giving. 

At $3 per 6 pack of tarts, they are a great value for as long as they last.

Look a little familiar?

I'm surfing the net for the new CHA releases and Maya Road has some new designs.  Check out their blog and scroll down about 1/2 way for the bird cage and bird. That's not the best photo, here's one I snagged from a retailer.

Aren't the birdies and separate wings just the cutest things?  Why didn't I think of that?
 
Oh that's right.  Because I did!  In April 2009.  Here's proof. (Click to enlarge)




Now if you look at this scan I have of them on Etsy You can see just how someone could print screen, crop, and use a vector program such as Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape to trace the image and lift it.  Just sayin.

Why your customer should choose you

Consumers have many choices and in this economy (gah I hate saying that!) they are choosing where to spend their dollars more wisely.  You need to show your customer why they need to choose you and not your competition.  Or maybe you need to show why they need your widget at all.  You need to set yourself apart from the competition in some way and show that you deserve their sale because you're the best.

Quick customer service and quick shipping helps because we live in a world where we want it and we want it now.  No you don't have to be at your computer every minute of every day, but try to answer questions as quickly as possible.  If your customer has emailed you and your competition about your widgets a quick reply just might get that sale.  Quick shipping just might turn that one time buyer into a repeat buyer or give you good word of mouth advertising.

Be easy to do business with.  This means great descriptions and even better photos if you sell online.  This helps your buyer know exactly what they are getting and doesn't leave them with questions.  Unfortunately, on Etsy I've had to resort to "convo me for more" because selling $2-3 die cuts doesn't allow much wiggle room for unecessary 20 cent insertion fees for multiples.  I've probably lost sales but my fees are high and I just can't afford to spend $2 for a quantity of 10 when only 1 might sell in those 4 months.  On Artfire I am able to list higher quantities with no extra fees.

Not only do we want it now, but we also want it exactly how we want it.  Offer customization.  I offer custom colors of my die cuts and can change the size.  I can also make unique items with initials, monograms, custom die cuts, or whatever.  My customers have the best ideas sometimes!  This is one of my bigger selling points and why my customers should choose me over my competition.

Cheaper prices doesn't give you an automatic edge over your competition.  Though we are spending our dollars wisely, people are still spending and are still willing to pay for quality.  We've become tired of spending hard earned money for junk that won't last.  We want quality and a widget that will get years of use before needing replaced.  Tell your customers and show them with photos that this is high quality, well made, and will last.

Sometimes you don't need to tell your customers why to chose you over the competition, sometimes you need to tell them why to buy it at all.  Will it make them prettier?  Will it make their skin glow?  Will it balance their checkbook, fold the laundry, and give them great abs at the same time?  Then tell them!  What function does this do and why does your buyer need this item in their life?

Be a real person.  People shop on Etsy and Artfire because they like supporting handmade and real people.  Show you are real.  Fill out your profile with as much as you are comfortable sharing.  If you Tweet, share little things about your day.  Be someone they want to like.  Maybe the buyer will make a connection because you both have kids that like to sleep in laundry hampers.



Ok shameless cute kid pic mixed in.  Hey, I'm a mom, I'm real! ;)

I'm not a marketing guru.  I'm just sharing things I'm reading up on to help myself and hopefully help others at the same time.  I <3 comments and if you have anything else to add please do.

Glass Etching Tutorial Using Circut or Cameo

Etched glass is a great way to decorate your home or make a unique gift for a friend.  Etching looks difficult, but it is very easy if you have a die cutter like the Silhouette Cameo or the Cricut.  This glass etching tutorial gives you all of the steps and supplies that you need to etch any glass!

Supplies:
  • Glass to be etched
  • Stencil or vinyl
  • Armor Etch
  • Popsicle Stick or paintbrush
  • Newspaper or other table covering
  • Timer
  • Drywall scraper (or credit card)
I used Inkscape to create my monogram.  You can use a stencil or any die cutter, but I just wanted to be sure it was welded and sized right so I used Inkscape.  I use SCAL2 to cut the image with my Cricut.  For easier weeding, put a square around the image so you have a smaller area to work with.  I used shelf liner contact paper because it's what I had on hand and it's cheap.  You can use vinyl if that's what you have.

Remove the positive of the image and leave the negative image (leave a hole for the image).  Cut your transfer paper a little bigger than your vinyl with the image.  I like it better so it's easier to place in the right spot.  Use a scraper or credit card and smooth out any bubbles and make sure you have a good adhesion to the contact paper.  Place your vinyl on the glass.  Use the scraper to make sure there are no air bubbles because bubbles around the edge can mean a sloppy image!
.
You can see the transfer paper is a little over the white contact paper so I could line it up easier.  Using your scraper start to peel off your transfer paper.  I like to hold the scraper against the vinyl and slowly peel back using the scraper as a guide to keep it straight.

 

Now it's time to Etch!  I used Armor Etch cream.  Spread the cream with a popsicle stick or paint brush.   
Put it on pretty thick as you can scrape off the excess and put it back in the bottle to use later.  Be really careful there are no air bubbles because the cream will seep into the bubbles.

Now wait. 

Armor Etch takes 5 minutes, but other creams may take longer.  When it's done, scrape the excess cream back into the bottle, rinse the glass with water and peel off your vinyl and dispose.

Now enjoy your etched glass!

I made these as a gift and unfortunately my camera battery died right as I was taking a pic of the final but they turned out awesome!  I did a set of 4 beer mugs for my dad for Christmas. 

I have been picking up glass at garage sales and thrift stores.  I have a big one for my dining room table and a few for above my kitchen cabinets waiting to be done.  I'm also going to etch my tea and coffee containers that are clear.

Another great idea is to etch the bottom of a glass pan (be sure to reverse the image!) with your last name so you know which one is yours at a pot luck.  Great bridal shower gift!

Personalized Custom Passport Covers






Sorry for the crappy pic, I took it with my iPhone.  I needed to get these packed up so I could get to the PO before picking up my kid from school.

Anywho, these were for a wedding party.  She wanted all their initials with a shadow in a solid color.  They are drying and the front isn't inside the cover so they look a little funny.  Just the back is inside the sleeve.

Just an example of what I can do with passport covers.  I can also do this with a checkbook cover or card holder.

Tuesday Tips Wire Rack Paper Organizer Hack



Have I mentioned before my craft cave is low budget?  Well, it is.  It's very functional but it ain't pretty.  That's why it's in the basement.  Yes I dream of having $1000s to install cube organizers, shelves, and all pretty things.  Until then, I'm content hacking and making do with what I have.

Enter the wire rack paper organizer.  This is not my original idea.  I saw it on a blog years ago and sadly have no idea where.  If this is your idea, please comment so I can link!

I started with a wire organizer from Target.  Target is the only place I've ever seen them.  I've searched online I can't find it, but it's the squares to make 6 cubes with the white connectors to hold them in place.  They are with the wood and metal shelves and other organizers.  They are normally under $15 but will go as low as $12-13 on sale.  We had 3 sets for each kids' room but when we redid toys we put one up. 

Enter hubby and all his many hand tools.  He used zip ties and a special thingy that gets them tight and snips off the tail.  You don't need the tool, it's just a little easier to get him motivated if there are tools involved.


Just make a 5 sided cube and put a shelf every inch or so where the bars are and zip tie.  that's it!  I did ask that he put the flush side on the inside of the sides and the bottom of the shelves.  One set gave me a cube with 9 slots  and another cube with 3 large slots.  Not bad for $12!  Especially $12 that I spent years ago :)

Because this was difficult to photograph, I stuck part of the newspaper in it to show the shelves.  It's going to take me a while to get my cardstock organized in this baby.


Can you see on the wall where my wonderful daughter colored?  This is what happens when Mommy is busy mopping the floor in the kitchen.  Further proof that I should have a housekeeper so I can devote my attention fully to the children.

Bonus points for anyone who can get crayon off flat paint with only 1 coat on the walls without the paint melting.  Extra bonus points for anyone that comes over to help me paint.

Determine Your Target Market

If you're going to get serious about your Etsy or Artfire or other small business, you need to determine your target market.  This helps you with new product development and advertising.  You can save a lot of time and money when you know your target market.  If your target market is young, hip, urban women you don't want to design a product for middle aged men.  Your regular buyers won't be interested and you'll spend too much in advertising to try to reach one group for one product. 

A target market is generally defined by gender, age, and socioeconomical status.  Socioeconomical status is especially important if you are selling nonessentials.  If your target market is collect students, you will have a hard time selling $50 widgets.  On the other hand, college students may be very willing to buy a few $5 widgets.  How much disposable income a group has also helps with determining price points and product lines. 

You also need to understand why your target market is buying your product.  Is it an essential?  Is it a small splurge?  Does it make them feel good?  Tell them why they need your product and talk in their terms.  You need to reach out and talk right to your target audience in their terms and ways that will capture their attention.  Use colors and slogans that your target audience will identify with and/or find familiar. 

On the internet, find out where your shopping hang out.  Do they read decorating blogs?  Do they Twitter a lot?  Facebook addicts?  Find out where they are and you can concentrate advertising there.  You may spend more per ad, but it should be more efficient.

I'm sure there are more tips, I'm not a marketing expert by any means.  I'm learning as I go and blogging to maybe help a few others along the way.  Please add any additional comments or tips.
