The Future of YOUR Business

Hi- It's been a very long time since I did any blogging here. I have been working on other diversions and social media.

However, I am back. I'm back with a new attitude and a new vision for the future of June's Creations. I've been meeting with various networking groups; creating the new me. This new me is way better for you. Why? The new molded me is about making the world better for YOU and for me. I get to do the things that I love. I get to be artsy and creative in lots of ways and you get to be the awesome person who gives something unique, handmade, and not the same as anyone else's. Where do you start? You start with a card. Yes, that's right, a card. What kind of card? A greeting card. For a birthday, a wedding, Get Well, Thank You, Praying for you, Thinking of you, etc. They are sweet, fun, sentimental, romantic, professional, personable. A handmade greeting card is all of those things and more.

Anyone can go to a card store and buy a card. They're everywhere and that's good for them and for just anyone. You could also go online and get some images and print your own cards. There are companies that you can hire to print cards for you as well. That's what big companies do. They are large and have a lot of employees. You however are a much smaller business. You want to rise above the mass corporations but you also want to stand out a little more and be taken seriously.Yes? So you need to be a step above from your colleagues.

That's where I come in. We can meet or talk online and you can give me an idea on what you're looking for. Do you sell real estate? Maybe cards with a house and a Congratulations tag. Hair stylist? Makeup artist? Cake decorator? Seamstress? I have images to coincide with all of those. The most important thing is that those cards will be unique to you, to your business and hopefully close to your style. Even if you have a business that I didn't mention, we can create something just for you. Even if you want a stack of the same style, it will be the style for you. Handmade means that even a stack of the same card will never be exactly the same.

A Birthday Party Craft

Wanted to tell you about the birthday party I did. The party was for a girl just turned 10, her friends and siblings. They each used the Butterfly Basics stamp set, our kraft notebooks and washi tape. Most of the tape came from Stampin' Up! but I picked up some locally too. I have to say that I won't be doing that again. I got 3 rolls from Stampin' Up! for $5.95 and they coordinate with each other and our colors. I did pick up the newest set from the Occasions catalog. 5 rolls (5 yards ea) for $7.95 Sweet Dreams Designer Washi Tape Colors include: Basic Gray, Crisp Cantaloupe, Hello Honey, Lost Lagoon and Sahara Sand # 137787

Here's the sample I made using the Sweet Dreams Set:

When I stopped by the local drug store, I found that their rolls had 5-8 yards each but they were $3.99-$5.99 per roll. I was super disappointed that I paid that much (total without tax- $14.97) for 3 rolls just so I could have some bolder options. The girls had fun though and I did too. In addition, I used some retired stamps to make them mustaches and lip photo props. Here are some photos of the fun they had.

Thanks for stopping by!

So I was able to get a free set of Blendabilities from the Sale-A -Bration collection too. I'll post what I did with that later. Here is the stamp and the first card I made.

Fancy Folds and 3-D items: Birthday Ideas

I signed up to do the Blog Hop for vc_rocks. It's all about using fancy folds and 3-D items. Here's a couple things I did recently. Be sure to click on VC_Rocks blog to see all the blogs with great ideas.
This is the card closed. It's 4 inches by 4 inches all folded.
This is the inside. The Happy Birthday stamp can be found in the Age Awareness stamp set #135381
It's a photopolymer set (clear and very sticky) $15.95. You can purchase it from June's Stampin' Up! website 
I call this card a box fold because it folds like you would close a box when you don't have tape.
Be careful when tucking in the last corner. Since this card doesn't have open edges, it would be a great place to add confetti to surprise someone.

Here's a cute candy box that you can add a gift to. It's the perfect size for some tootsie rolls, other small candies, chap-stick, lipstick, etc. I made it with the envelope punch board. I started with a piece of the All Abloom paper #133703. You get 24 sheets of 4 1/2 by 6 paper for $6.95    Then I scored with the Simply Scored along the long side at 1, 1/2, 2 and also at 4, 4 1/2 and 5. On the short side, score at 1,2,3, and 4. I don't have a video but there are lots out there.

Leave a comment and get entered to win some goodies from my stash!
