Cards measurements are 5 1/2″ x 4″. Matching enveloped included.

This set of bright colored cards was created on a bitterly cold December winter day. I was yearning for the colorfulness of spring and decided to create a lively spring scene on a card!

These lovely ladybug cards are definitely in the mood for spring! The fun googly eyed ladybug is peeking out from behind hand-cut blades of bright green grass. Blue fluffy clouds are floating up above, the perfect backdrop for a purple and yellow butterfly that seems to fly off the paper. Great for any occasion, these colorful cards are blank for your special message.

How to Feature a Treasury in Your Blog Using Photoshop

A common question among Etsy sellers is, “How can I insert a snap shot of a treasury into my blog??”

{First of all, a treasury is an “ever-changing, member-curated shopping gallery.”}

First Step: Open up your treasury in an internet browser window.

Second Step: Adjust the screen so that the browser shows the size of the treasury you’d like to be featured in your blogย  (e.g. only 2 rows of the treasury or all 4?).

  • Mozilla: Click “View” and “zoom in” or “zoom out” to view
  • Google Chrome: Click wrench shape on upper right side of browser (I zoom at 69%)

Third Step: Once you have the treasury appearing on the screen as you’d like it to appear in your blog, push the “Print Screen/SysRq” key.

Fourth Step: Open Photoshop and click “File” and select “New” and adjust the size for your image canvas (I use 10 inches wide and 10 inches high)

Fifth Step: Click on your canvas. Push keys “Ctrl” and “V” at the same time. The screen’s image from when you pushed the “Print Screen/SysRq” key will appear on your canvas.

Sixth Step: Using the cropping tool on the left sidebar, crop the image.ย  When you are done cropping, go to the top horizontal bar, click “Layer” and select “Merge Visible”.

Seventh Step: Click “File” and select “Save as”. Save the new image as a JPG onto your computer.

Now you are ready to open your blog and start a fresh blog post in which you discuss and display your brand new treasury! ๐Ÿ™‚

Springy Table Place Cards

 

These vintage table place cards would be a beautiful accent to your table setting. These place cards are folded first grade flash cards, accented with a cheerful green and white flower. The brown ribbon is fastened to the flash card with a gentle hued grey metal brads.

A neat facet of these place cards is the fun that can be had with the words on the inside of the place cards. If your family/friend meals (or Holiday meals!) are like mine and lively (or perhaps yours could use a conversation starter), these place cards are perfect! Coming from a game-loving family, a game we would play with these cards would be as follows: tell a story; each person would say their own sentence (using their place card’s word), and every person around the table would build on the story. I’m sure interesting words like “microphone” and “larger” would make your meals even more memorable! As you can see from the pictures, these 40+ year old cards have been well-loved and they will continue to be useful and loved with a new life at your table setting.
