One of my favorite new websites to check every day is Kickstarter. Whether you know of this website or not, I urge you to take a look and see if there is a project that you would like to help back and get funded, and improve the world a little, and you usually receive something in return related to the project – such as a new product at a discounted price in exchange for your support and donation.
One project I am excited about is the Typestache playing cards. Like many, I am a fan of fonts, as well as playing cards, so I was excited to see the two paired together. Three graphic designers have teamed up to create an App, and a set of playing cards to go with it, based on a variety of fonts. There are 6 days left for this project to be funded – they are looking to double the $1200 goal to send another order to the printer and be able to print more decks of cards. Check out this project and consider backing – I know I am excited to receive my decks!
A couple new items this week: a new kit called Looking Glass using some vintage Arthur Rackham Alice illustrations, plus a template by request for creating your own straw flags. All images are linked below. Will have more for you soon!
Happy Thanksgiving! I have several pies to bake today to bring to dinner tonight, but wanted to let you know that my shop is set up for 50% everything through Cyber Monday – the discount will show up in your cart. Have a great Thanksgiving – and try not to gobble til you wobble ;0
Do you have a Smart Phone, iPad, Computer Screen, TV or something else that you try to keep clean but still have issues? I do, and sometimes it’s hard to find something to grab to clean the screen with, and keep it clean. I recently ran across the Toddy Smart Cloth – you select the design you want – there are several to choose from, and you’ll get it within just a couple of days! And currently he has a buy 2 get 1 free sale for the holidays – check it out. I ordered mine last week and they came today – it even comes with a little plastic zipper case to keep it in for travel!
The YouTube Video description says this was created by the UK branch of DK books, originally created for a DK sales conference but now being shared publicly. Watch the whole thing – it’s very creative and cleverly written!
Happy iDSD everyone! I hope you have some digital scrapping planned for this weekend. Just a quick note that I added a few new things, and everything is on sale for an amazing 60% off just through Sunday night so you better hurry up – the discount will show up in your cart.
And I have a few new things I added to the store last night and this morning – Barely There Photo Masks, Traffic Sign Alpha, Plaid Templates 01, and a Foldover Cards Template.
I had a request to see about making a foldover cards template, so I used the 3.5″ x 2″ standard size card to make a 6-up template. The Plaid Templates I created when I was making the Adele papers and just recently packaged them up – they come in both 90-degree and 45-degree orientations with 5 colors plus a background layer. The Traffic Sign Alpha is to coordinate with the Traffic Signs series and the Beep Beep: Under Construction series. Link below, or shoppe here. Have a great weekend and Happy November – Turkey Day is just around the corner, and I am working on my menu!
