About FeltingNerdyandMore:  Hello! My name is Tamzon (…it rhymes with Samson). 😉 I’m a crazy stay-at-home Momma to 4 precocious little hellions (the oldest is currently 5). I enjoy spending my sporadic “Me Time” sketching and crafting, and especially love it when my crafts can serve a practical purpose…like keeping my children quietly occupied…giving me more Me Time…to make more practical crafts…to keep them occupied. It’s a beautiful cycle.   After spending more than 100 hours designing and creating felt quiet/busy books for mine and others toddlers, I decided to draft step-by-step tutorials so others could learn to make them too!  I hope you find something here in my shop that inspires you!
47) French Settees. This is a circa 1850′s Paris print of two elegant ornate French settees. There are such amazing details on these ornate settee images, from the tassels, to the pillows, to the floral swags and garlands. I’ve included the original Sepia toned version, with all of its ageing and patina intact and a black and white version as well.
Artist Notes: Could there be a more fun and colorful way to Happy Birthday to friends, family or business colleagues this year? The message "Wish Big for your birthday" appears in big, colorful letters, overlapping each other, with both of the letter "i's" transforming into candles, with flames atop them. The black background makes the brightly colored letters pop out in celebration. The inside wording of the card is "May all your birthday wishes come true!"
Who doesn't love the smell of an old book, the crinkle of it's time worn pages. Quality vintage and victorian printables that let your mind wonder to journal treasures found in the attic. I have had a fascination with vintage journals from a young age, and combined with my love for scrapbooking and digital arts, I was led down this path... creating my own papers for hybrid scrapbooking!
Do you have a blog? or have you thought of finding blogs in your niche to offer free printables to/ credit to your shop for review on their blog? possibly offer to do some work for a few blogs (a few freebies) in exchange put at bottom of printable (designed by GrinandPrint for Barefoot Budgeting) with your link in print? Also, twitter!! Instagram is really your best form of media for printables in my opinion but touching on them all and don’t give up. I’ve heard that the more you have in your shop and great key words (check your competition) are also great ways to increase views 🙂 Keep in touch if you think I can be of any assistance with any of these.
Numbers nerd. Guilty. I have always completely geeked out when working in Excel and creating spreadsheets that provide the information I need quickly and easily. I hate wasting my time in activities that do not add value and focus my efforts on being efficient as possible. My desire is to help others do the same! The files I create are tailored to the spreadsheet novice and do all the calculating for you. They are also always formatting to print out just right in case you need a hard copy.

Artist Notes: Wish your wonderful friend a Happy Birthday and let them know how special their friendship is to you. The card front reads "Just once in a blue moon does a wonderful friend like you come along!" and it is illustrated by a deep blue night sky filled with stars and illuminated by a beautiful blue full moon. A blue moon does not happen often, and it is considered the second full moon to occur in one calendar month. A month with two full moons only happens, on average, once every two-and-a-half years, so saying "Once in a Blue Moon" means "not very often". A blue moon is as special as your forever friend's birthday, and a great way to describe how deeply appreciated your special friendship is. The verse reads: Our friendship has seen so many milestones ... a few marked with tears, but most marked with laughter. And while we may have to count to remember just how long we've been friends, it seems like forever. That's just what it will remain ... forever. Happy Birthday, Forever Friend!
However, because I did not have any clear goals for my store and definitely didn't treat it like a business, it did not make a lot of money. I was okay with that at the time because I had a lot of other things going on. I had just closed down a coffee shop business and was launching a cleaning and babysitting business. That kept me busy during the day and then at night, I'd work on my graphic design business serving clients and tinkering with this blog.

Take note of color and texture. Color is a very important factor to consider when labeling your bottle. To stick with the vintage theme, rustic colors such as brown, black, and red are often used. Make sure also that the combination of colors you use does not distract from the main point of the label which is the name. Also consider some metallic textures for your bottle.Experiment with typography. The font you use for your label is also an important factor to consider. Classic fonts such as sans serif and its variations are often a good choice. Make sure the font give off a relaxing, vintage feel.Incorporate photography and art. When labeling, being minimalist has its benefits, but you can also put pictures and artworks into your labels. There are vintage bottle label templates that incorporate them seamlessly.
Make sure you save your Word, jpg or Excel files as a pdf. Pdf’s are generally easier to print. They can also be secured so that no one can download and change your product. Most programs give you the ability to “save as” to a pdf. If you use an Adobe product like Illustrator, it’s part of the program. If you use other art/graphic sites like Canva, Picmonkey you can always convert or print the jpgs to a pdf.
