These next two features are for the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition. I love this feature. There are so many times I want to access an object within several tightly spaced objects and using the rectangle or ellipse selection tool is an exercise in frustration. The flexibility this feature allows in selecting objects is so awesome. This feature gets a 5 star rating.
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!"
About AdorablyGrown: Hi there! My name is Dora. I am an avid gardener, living on a small organic farm in the Northwest Hills of Connecticut. After a career-related move to the northeast, I fell in love with a hay farmer and moved to the country! Transitioning from a tiny urban garden to a small farm truly put my gardening skills to the test. But, we continue to grow and improve each year. Many of the items in the shop are a direct result of the tools and resources we created to manage our garden and other chores around the farm.
About TheSwagElephant: I started The Swag Elephant as I was planning my best friend’s bachelorette party. We were going to Las Vegas and I was super inspired by “the Hangover” and wanted to create some sort of fun accessory for the bachelorette party attendees. I decided to create gold foil temporary tattoos that say “bride tribe” and “wolf pack” and they came out great! They stayed on in the pool and the ladies loved them, especially the bride.
I sell physical prints mostly out of the fear of someone reselling. Like you said, they could still do that with a physical copy by scanning but at least that’s a little more of a hassle. I’d also hate to see my art printed on shitty paper or the colors are completely off because the buyer (or print service they use) doesn’t put in the effort to get the colors just right.
I’m really excited today to be joining my friend Summer, from Summer Adams Designs for a fun Vintage themed Valentine’s Day hop. Each year for Valentine’s Day I like to come up with a fun and simple idea that my kids can share with their friends and classmates, and I was excited to create something with a vintage feel. Old school Valentine’s cards are so cute and full of charm, aren’t they?

Sarah loves doing whatever she can to help busy moms by providing them with the organizational tools they need. Often customers’ needs are slightly different from her product so she offers customization. This is hard to balance with the overall business because custom work in any business can be very time consuming. Sarah counters this struggle with requiring a minimum amount for custom products so that each order is worth the time she puts in.
