Finally, Custom Laser Cuts!

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to share something really quick with you. I am now offering Custom Laser Cuts on E-Bay. I will be adding it to my site when I have a second also. Here is the link, http://www.ebay.com/itm/221345961067?var=&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 . Basically, you pick a font and I will cut whatever words you want! This particular listing is for 1-1/2″ tall letters, but I will probably be adding other options in the future.

The picture above shows the fonts that I am currently offering.

Below, I have added the same instructions I have on the listing. Just in case you are curious how it works. Pricing is in the listing and depends on the number of letters.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Choose your font. Fonts with no stars are “regular fonts” with individual letters that require placement of each letter on your project. These are good if you want to make wavy font or spell something vertically. Fonts with one star are “welded” fonts and all letters are stuck together making it easy to place on your project. These require extra design time so they cost a little more. Fonts with 2 starts are “premium” fonts which include etching and cost a little more due to extra design and cutting time.
  2. Decide on your cut and count the letters. Write down your word or phrase and count the letters. You can have up to 3 punctuations, ordinal numbers, or numbers at no additional cost. (For instance, “Lizzy’s 1st Birthday!” would only count as 14 letters since we don’t count the apostrophe, the ordinal number “1st” or the exclamation point. If there were any additional punctuation, they would need to be counted since that would make the total go over 3. )
  3.   Select the correct drop down menus. Using the same example, if I wanted to get Lizzy’s 1st Birthday cut in the number 5 font, I would select “5” from the drop down menu, then I would select “12-18” for the number of letters.
  4. Click to order. In the note to seller section write what you want cut EXACTLY how you want it cut. Please make sure all spellings are correct since I will cut exactly what is sent. Make sure to capitalize anything you want capitalized. (The number 2 font does not recognize capitals) DO NOT put quotations around your words unless you want those to count as 2 of your 3 free punctuations. DO NOT write anything else other than what you want cut. If you want to say anything else, please send it in a separate message. I have to do this to make sure I send you exactly what you want. P.S. if you are ordering the word “Thanks!” I may message you to confirm that is in fact what you wanted. If you want the same word multiple times, then increase the quantity to accommodate that many letters. For instance, if I wanted my example of “Lizzy’s 1st Birthday!” Multiple times, I would have selected 26-34 as the number of letters. I would write Lizzy’s 1st Birthday in the message to seller then in a separate message I would explain that I want two of that same saying.

    I tried to make this as easy and clear as possible which is hard when dealing with custom designs. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be more than happy to help you!

    If you have a different custom job that you want done, please message me. I can cut up to a 12″ x 12″ piece.

Welcome Christmas into Your Heart

welcome christmas

Hey everyone. I just wanted to share another Christmas card real quick. I have a few more that I need to take pictures of as well. If I only make cards once a year, it is always Christmas cards that I make sure to get done. I found the “Welcome Christmas into your heart” saying on the internet and designed my own word art using Inkscape then printed it on cardstock. Designing word art in Inkscape is the easiest way to get a new “stamp” without actually having to buy anything! I inked it using three different green distress inks and flicked some water on it then blotted it up. The small trees were made by folding half of a circle. I am not sure of the size since I just traced my Bare Minerals container (LOL). I believe those papers were some 7 Gypsies papers I had in my stash. I cut out a few pieces of snowflake paper from A DCWV mat stack that I have had since last year. Then I inked the edge with broken glass distress ink. I made one tree different and added a green rhinestone as a “star” to the top. This little tree is welcoming Christmas into it’s heart :-). Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Bunch of Christmas Cards Done

Nothing fancy here. Just trying to squeeze these in before It’s too late ! I mostly used G45’s Nutcracker Sweet from last year and DCWV Heirloom Christmas Stack, which is also from last year. I’m on a spending freeze until I use up some stuff in my room. ( with the exception of glues and such). Luckily, I have plenty of Christmas items to chose from !

This is the only inside I’m going to show. Even though I did for inside of all my cards, most of them are pretty boring. I happen to like this one though.

Hopefully I’ll have enough time to squeeze another six in ! The only bad thing about rushing cards is my creativity lacks. I may have to just pick an easy mass produce design and do that for the rest. I just prefer making each different since they feel more special that way :-). Remember, I sell Graphic 45 and Prima at http://www.shop.intoxicatingarts.com !
