Blue Wave Bridal Shower Invitations

il 570xN.591026083 ic18

Hot off the press, I just finished these blue bridal shower invitations about 5 minutes ago. They remind me of the ocean, all swirly and blue and aqua and all.  Maybe it’ll send subliminal cooling to all those sweaty summer bridal shower participants.  Wait…those ladies can’t be sweaty, they’re all feminine and glowing.  Um, right.  Anyway, hope you enjoy.  You can find it here at Nifty Printables.

Children’s Outer Space Birthday Invitations

Are these cute or what? (I know, I’m so bad to say my things are cute but if you only knew how much stuff I’ve made and hated, you’d forgive me). Anyway, for your little tyke’s next birthday bash, grab a space rocket, some bright yellow stars and the moon and roll ‘em into one cute set of kid’s outer space birthday invitations.  Or better yet…let me do it for you!

You can find it two places.

1. Nifty Printables, for $15 I’ll customize it and send you the file to print to your heart’s content.

2. Or ready-made from Flo’s Paperie on Zazzle.

Zoom on, rocket boy, zoom on.

Cute Zebra Photo Graduation Announcements & Invitations

il 570xN.589882470 evn1

I’ve made a few graduation invitations this week and figure it’s a good time to start posting them since the end of the school year will be soon upon us. This particular zebra graduation announcement is a fluffy, wild child confection of animal print goodness accented with pink and pretty scalloped edging. For the girly graduate, fo sho .

I’ve got it in 2 formats.

1. Zebra Graduation Announcements from Nifty Printables you print yourself and

2. Zebra Graduation Invitations from Flo’s Paperie @ Zazzle

What’s the diff? The Zazzle version has two sides with all the party details on the back while the announcement is a one-sided card as seen here.  It’s interesting to note how they differ beyond that, which is due to the fact that my Nifty Printables designs are the way I intend them to look, whereas I have to change things around for Zazzle’s limited font and customization palette.  Still cute, but not as bitchin’. icon smile

Soooo Busy! And My Cool Surprise Party Invitations

il 570xN.590390399 etqo

Behold my funky retro surprise party invitations. I also made an alternative version for regular ole birthdays which I’ll likely post eventually.

I’ve been in design heaven of late. I somehow took a creative turn and started a new endeavor: invitation and stationery design.  I opened a shop on Zazzle just for it, Flo’s Paperie which I originally thought would be my  central hub for it all, wasn’t even planning to sell customized things through Etsy, it just seemed a little too intimidating. But once I figured out the nuts and bolts of how to manage it, I’m thrilled to be concentrating my efforts there. Here are my Nifty Printables personalized invitations (graduation, birthday, baby shower so far).  Then I’ve got the rest of the stationery (note cards, thank you cards and greeting cards) here.

Here’s a sample of what I’m doing, a funky surprise birthday invitation. I’ve got lots of modern styles as well as the ole vintage which you know I love.  Stay tuned…much more to come!

Grunge Stars & Stripes American Flag Alphabet Letters Set

Put your patriotic hat on, this red, white and blue American Flag alphabet letters set is cute as can be with chevron instead of boring ole stripes and a lovingly grunged-up treatment for that well-worn look.  This patriotic alphabet clip art will be a great element in 4th of July invitations, country styles and anything else that requires a good old dose of the USA.  Find these cute American Flag alphabet letters here.

Stylish Arrow Business Cards

These Arrow Business Cards from my Neat Business Cards  shop are simple but got it goin’ on.  A dark, grungy arrow on a neutral vintage background make for a monolithic statement. Doesn’t that sound grand?

These cool business cards will make everyone jealous at the next Chamber of Commerce’s networking event and make you so popular, you won’t know what to do with yourself.

As with all my cards, you can change the background fonts to your heart’s desire (or whatever is available on the little font thingy).  Find them here.

I Love Ewe – Cute Sheep Lovey Dovey Greeting Cards

il 570xN.583693672 f1xl

So check me out…I’m now offering do-it-yourself greeting cards at Nifty Printables!  Duh, about time I thought of that.  Then again, it’s because these new designs I’m working on really lend themselves to it. Here’s the dealio: Just $3.00 gets you a jpg file that you print, cut around, fold in half and voila…a 7″ x 5″ Greeting card!  So far the greeting card section includes birthdays, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and a couple of cute extras like this sheep shown here.  I’ll be adding to it a lot because, well why not? Now, if you’d like ready-made merchandise with this sweet gal on it (minus the “I Love Ewe” part) just check her out at my Zazzle shop.  Otherwise, she’s available here at Nifty Printables.  Not baaaaaaad, huh? hee

Just Be Yourself Bee Gifts


ZOMG, I’ve been doing so much designing, it’s insane.  Unfortunately, you’d never know it from my lack of updating this site (or any of my other online marketing spots).  Because basically, I suck.  But hey, I can’t help it if I love making the crap but need to coerce myself into sharing it.

Anyway, while I’m always experimenting with different design styles, I’ve found something I want to hang out with for a while: reworking Vintage illustrations and engravings.  I’m playing around with all sorts of ways to use them and in this set of designs, Just Be Yourself, I’ve mixed an old vintage bee with a more modern treatment to make it a little fun, a little kooky, plus it has a sweet message besides.  Because yeah, be yourself, baby, you’re the real deal and don’t you forget it. And that is not me being snarky. I mean it.

You can find this creature and his family at my Vintage Poster Designs shop on Zazzle (already linked here), or as print-it-yourself prints and greeting cards at Nifty Printables.
