Yes, I papercraft!

22 Feb

A MOMpreneur friend of mine was looking for some note cards to hand out to her customers.  She was finding it difficult to find just what she needed at just the right price.  So of course I offered my services.  You know I do digital design, but did you also know I paper craft as well?  Hmm.. Well, I do.  Here are the cute note cards I made her.

And of course you can’t make note cards without a box to put them in, so here is the box.  By the way, I hate math and this box was tricky as it used up the entire sheet of cardstock so the measurements had to be just so.

So there you have it.  You learn something new every day.  I do indeed paper craft!

New Product: DIY Placecards

16 Jan

I said I had everything to meet your wedding stationary needs.  Well, almost everything.  I have added one more thing to my list.  I have created do-it-yourself place cards that co-ordinate with our wedding invitations.  When you order these place cards, you will receive a Word document with a place card template on it and your chosen design, enough for 120 guests.  If you need more, just let us know and we can create a few more pages at no extra cost.  Text boxes are in place and ready for you to type in your guests names.  All you need to do is type in the names and print the place cards on some neutral coloured cardstock.  Place cards can be added to your Wedding Package for $5 or purchased individually for $10.

Website is Back Up! AND I Have New Products to Announce!

15 Jan

I’ve been a busy beaver.  No I haven’t finished my Animal Alphabet, but it’s coming, I promise.  I’ve been busy creating two new products.  I will introduce the first one today, but you’ll have to wait for the second one!

Wedding Package!

What’s that?  I have created a variety of wedding stationary for your special day.  Each wedding package includes co-ordinating Save the Date Cards (4×6), Wedding Invitations (5×7), RSVP Cards (4×6), Map Cards (4×6) and Menu Cards (5×7) all for one low price.  Each card is designed so it is easy for you to print at your favourite photo print shop.  There are many designs to choose from.  I can change the colour and font of your chosen design to match your theme, or I can create something completely new so you get the perfect invitations for your special day.

Wedding Packages are just $45.00 for all 5 custom designed cards. You may be asking “How much would my wedding stationary cost?”  The cost would vary depending on where you choose to do your printing.  For example, the average printing costs at your local supermarket or department store is $0.19 per print for 4×6 and $0.30 for 5×7.  So for all 4 wedding cards, it would cost $0.90 per invitation.  If you had 100 guests, you would need 50 invitations.  The printing costs for 100 guests would be $45.00.  You would probably only need 25 menu cards, so the menu cards would cost $7.50. The total cost for all your wedding stationary would be under $100!

Visit my website to see all available designs.  And keep on the lookout for do-it-yourself Place Cards coming soon!

Mompreneurs: Jenna Bee’s Creations

14 Jan

I met Jenna through a website called The Bump.  A whole group of us got along so well, that we became fast Facebook friends and talk nearly every day.  She has a baby the same age as mine and she’s also a very creative individual.  Jenna creates adorable, handmade mobiles for nurseries.  I had the opportunity to talk with Jenna about her passion and how she got started in Jenna Bee’s Creations.

Why did you start your business?

August 2010 is when I really started trying to turn this hobby of mine into a business. I realized how much I loved working with paper. I made a mobile for my daughter’s nursery and just enjoyed it so much. So I opened a shop on Etsy hoping people would buy them and give me an excuse to keep making them!

What inspires you?

The natural color schemes that present themselves outside my window on a daily basis are what inspire me. In my opinion, nature has a way of coordinating the most attractive color schemes.

What is your favourite product?

Currently, my favorite product is the Rising Sun mobile. It hasn’t sold yet, so it’s still hanging in my workroom and I find myself staring at it often. The colors are just so beautiful!

Do you have advice for other mompreneurs?

My advice for other mompreneurs is to simply find something you love doing and that you’re good at and don’t give up on it!

You can find Jenna and Jenna Bee’s Creations on Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/jennaebee13
