Vinyl on earrings...what's next

There's nothing I can't vinyl. I found these mother of pearl earrings in the Dollar section of Target - Wahoo! Picked up a few pair to make gifts. The workable area is 1 inch by 1 inch. I thought these would be cute to change around for the occasion or season. Since it uses such a small amount of vinyl, you can rip off the design and change as you want! The owl is from the cartridge Stamping Solutions.

Cake Carrier

I got inspiration from all of the cake carriers on the MB, so had to do my own - I think I went a little overboard with the monogram, polka dots AND flamingos - I wanted them all. The flamingo is from Life's a beach cartridge, the monogram is the font My Own Topher done in SCAL. CLick on picture for a better view.

the EASIEST Men's shirt card

Here is a super easy mens shirt card. It's a standard A2 card. Just one fold. I usually make the card base out of white so the shirt has a white collar, although it could be made of any color. I put pop dots under the collar so it adds some dimension. The entire shirt is made from George and there are 2 tie options. In the picture, the tie is made from PDDU, there is a tie option made from George as well on the cut file. The cut file is available in the right hand column.
