50 Reasons Why …

It is the greatest compliment to be asked to create a custom item for one of the best friends of your best friend … it is also extremely nerve wracking. I had these conflicting emotions recently when my “special friend” (inside joke) Katherine was telling me about a plaque she was trying to order for a friend’s birthday off of Etsy. She was having a difficult time getting the seller to respond to her and she had not yet received a final proof for the custom item and the deadline for shipping had already come and gone. I commented that I now have a 12 x 12 color printer and could probably help her if she wanted me to give it a try ….

After some file conversions and other computer magic and font adjustments I had a proof for Katherine’s review.  She wanted to emphasize the hearts. At first I thought the Heart Epoxy Droplets, but I only had one pack and I needed 50 of the small sized hearts. Then I thought glimmer paper! Here is the finished item which both Katherine and the birthday girl, Erin, loved:

Here are the Stampin’ Up! products that were used in the design of this project with quick link thumbnails to make adding them to your shopping cart a snap.

Product List

The design designer series paper used under the vellum is retired. The non-Stampin’ Up! items you will need to complete your project are a 12 x 12 shadow box and 12 x 12 vellum available at your local big box store.

If you have any questions or would like to commission a custom project for a deserving friend or family member, all you need to do is ask. I love creating and putting smiles on people’s faces when they see the end result.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you leave here inspired to put stamps to ink to paper. Until next time, stamp on my friends.

    The finished product was amazing and I’m eternally grateful for your help! It turned out way better than the original piece I ordered off of Etsy. It has that “Linda” touch that made it perfect! Thanks again for all your amazing help!
