Little stickers for labeling cards – made with the Silhouette Cameo

I often get the question where I got those beautiful cards from.
So I thought of creating some quick stickers to have it easy to mark the cards with a little “made by Angelika” with my logo and tiny copyright sign.

I set the words and graphics up in Photoshop to fill a whole page and imported the .jpg into Silhouette Studio.
Then I copied the shape of a label I previously created into the workspace, adjusted the size and replicated them to fit the words. I activated registration marks and printed the page.

At last I cut the page with a very short blade and little thickness, so the stickers could simply be dropped from the basic paper. Perfect!

Handy DIY seeding and plant labels

Now it’s the time again to through out the little seeds in little pots and watch it growing. I LOVE this. I still find it a miracle how nature is awaking in spring and seeding for me means health, wealth and fun.

Tired of the ugly white plastic sticks I usually used I took the time to design my own labels. This way you can make as many as you need. They are done quickly on a sunny afternoon, just print, cut and glue them around a tooth picks or  skewers. They look pretty if you give away some seedlings as gifts.

You can get the downloadable files from my Etsy shop.

Labelmania, grunge and dirty edges

Today I feed the shabby old grunge corner.
I just had so many ideas, that I could hardly stop myself in creating tags and labels. They are just so handy and my samples went away in no time.
Below you can see how I made the dirty edges with the help of Tim Holtz/Ranger distressed ink pad and the ink blending foam tool, so easy and such a cool effect.

Have fun and have a great Sunday!

Cooking your own marmalade and labeling

This is the time of the year when you get all those delicious fruit for little money or even as gifts from friends gardens or from your own. I know many women making their own marmelade. There are fantastic recipes around on internet, not to talk about the mouth watering photos.

So I come up with some printable labels, very handy and beautiful if you want to give away some off your home made treasures.

You can either print them on strong paper and fix them with double sided tape or you print them on adhesive paper directly, then cut the shapes (by hand or with a die cutting machine like the Big Shot). At last you can take a pretty ribbon and fix a gift tag with your personal greetings.

Have fun!

Quick greeting card

Last week I needed a quick greeting card for a new born baby. I used some of my embossing experiments: the basic card, a square element of the same pattern and one of my new grungy paper labels fixed with a pin and decorated with a box and two fluffy balls from the craft shop.
