My dear friend Carolyn amazes me. She make THE MOST beautiful creations! Today she is having a black Friday sale, and I HIGHLY recommend you visit :) Burp cloth sets only $5, 10% off everything...and more!


Here is a preview of her awesomeness...and yes, everything is that cute.

FREE TEMPLATE: New Moon T-Shirt Iron-on Transfer

For all of you Twilight fans...like myself...here is a little treat for your frequent trips to the theaters this week :) Iron-on transfer to a white or light colored t-shirt (I used Avery brand transfers from Walmart). Prints on a full 8.5 x 11". Looks extra fabulous on a mustard colored long sleeved.

*Hint: cut off as much negative space around the cliff and words etc. as you can.

Be the envy of all your groupies, or share if you wish.

P.S. I thought I was so clever last year when I "came up with this" but then I saw some on the internet last week. Bummer. Still cute though!

FREE Template Tuesday: By Order of the Queen

Did you know that a person's brain tends to fall out during the last month of pregnancy and then continues to do so for about a month after the baby is born?

I just found that out.

Sorry I have not been sharing the freebie love lately, but I do not come back without a gift: I find myself asking my husband to do things quite a bit {read demanding}, so I thought I would make a subtle "honey do list" for him. This is perfect for wives, moms, the bride-to-be, or just about any woman. :) Just print on 8.5 x 11" paper and cut down the middle.

Enjoy, it's good to be back!

FREE Template: Father's Day Cards

I know this is a little late (day of, hello.) But, I was frantically searching for a cute free card online for my father's day gifts and couldn't find a thing! Of course that will never do, so I made these and thought I might as well share....use them today, or archive for next year :)

{These are really simple, really quick, print and fold cards. 8.5 x 11, folded in fours. No cutting needed--just like the good old days of PrintMaster. Haha.}

FREE Template Tuesday: Invites

I wanted to share a free Summer Invite Template. I am getting excited for the idea of summer parties, and I hope you can use this for one of yours! Maybe even a hip bridal/baby shower? Let me know how you will use yours!

Just print out (front and back are included) and cut down the middle lengthwise. Fold, write, send! -OR- do what I sometimes do and send it to your local Kinko's and let them do the work :)

{Please forgive me for not taking a cute picture of a finished product, if I kept waiting for myself to do that, I wouldn't ever post!}


FREE Template Tuesday: Easter Cards

This year, I have the ambition to send out Easter cards. We will see if that happens :) In the meantime, I have designed a cute free Easter card for you, complete with a silhouette bunny on the front and damask on the back. {Blank inside.} The card is 5.5 x 4.25, perfect for an A2. As a bonus, I designed a little mailing label with said bunny for Avery labels 5164, 5264, 5524, 8164, 8254, 8464, 48464, 55164, 58164. Download here.

Focus On: Spring

I am so excited for Spring! I can't wait to get outside and work in my garden and just enjoy the sounds of birds again. I have been doing a lot of spring cleaning around here (or at least planning out what I'm going to do.) As such, I have some lovely new designs for my spring line coming out soon (wedding, baby, stationary, hooray!)

I hope you'll check back tomorrow for the FREE Template Tuesday: Spring Labels.

See you soon!

Where has Candis been?

Vacation. Fabulous vacation.

Some wonderfully beautiful things are in the works, and I promise will be up soon!

FREE Template Tuesday: To-Do list.

I have been hip deep in work these days (and not all of it was pretty, sadly.) The corporate world has needed my attention. However, I thought I might share with you a little to-do list template I made after reading one of my friends blogs. I have often thought about the concept "I can do hard things." It makes me feel empowered. So, print yourself off a little list and remember that wise advice.

I should warn you, page one of the pdf is the 'clean' version of this template, page two may have a little cus word. My apologies. You choose which one best suits you :) Download here.

Free Template Tuesday: Hearts and Love day!

Last week was so busy! It has been so fun fulfilling your orders and hearing your comments :) I owe you my apologies for not posting a free template last week, SO here are 2 this week!!

Valentines Day is just around the corner, and I love giving {and receiving} yummy treats and love notes. I made these cute heart tags that you can either print on Avery 5294 labels, or just print and cut out. They would be super cute as a package seal, dangling tag or envelope seal--so many possibilities!

The next FREE template is a cute little name plates that reads "happy love day." I plan on punching a hole on either end and stringing ribbon through the back and around a box full of goodies. I would love to hear how you might use these! {I am obsessing over Tiffany blue lately, can you tell?}

New Feature: Little Window Shoppe

What a pleasant surprise to be featured on such a fantastic blog: Little Window Shoppe!

Template Tuesday: Place cards!

I am in the "host a dinner party every night" kind of mood. As such, I thought I would share some lovely place cards that I have made for our FREE Template Tuesday!

Just download the template here, open in Word, edit the names, print, cut, fold. Fantastic.

Each sheet makes 6 place cards with lovely golden swallows and steel blue calligraphy. I am somewhat obsessing over this font (and if you haven't already downloaded it from Luzel's blog, visit www.fonts101.com and search Albemarle Swash. {for some reason, I cannot link it}

So, let's have a party! I'll bring dessert.

Free Template Tuesday: Thank You Cards

There's something about a new year that make me so THANKFUL! What better time of year to send lovely correspondence to your friends and loved ones telling them thanks for the thoughtful gifts, or just for their company?

I just made these darling little notes to send out quick messages to my friends and thought I would share. Just print out on cardstock and cut right down the middle lengthwise (or as we say around these parts - 'hotdog style.') Fold in half and send :)

I love the inside of these because you can keep your sentiments short and sweet, or use the extra space at the top to write more!

Enjoy, and Happy {thankful} New Year!

Focus On: Stationary

I love making things personal...giving something meaning. I think that every person deserves some personalized stationary. It is so nice to have something that says "this is me!" and aren't I lovely? :)

Custom stationary is one of my favorite things to create. If you are interested, just find a few examples of what you love, send them my way, and I will make something completely unique for you!

I can't wait to see what we can create together!
