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.
