6 Free Valentine Printables

January 19th, 2014 § 18 comments § permalink

One of my 2014 intentions is to strengthen my creativity muscle, which means I need to use it more. So, I sat down the other day and came up with six Valentine Printables I hope you’ll enjoy. I tried to design each Valentine so that young and non-as-young could use them. I purposely left the word “valentine” off a couple of the designs in hopes that they will get used all year long. If you download one (or more), please leave a comment letting me which one(s) you download. It’s always nice to know what is getting enjoyed.

Happy (early) Valentine’s Day!
Whitney

Free Hanging Holiday Card Printable

This is not your ordinary holiday card. It can act as cheery wall decor or as a mobile. How fun would this be to receive!?

Hanging Holiday Card with reindeer “Vanna White”

It’s super easy to create. Just download our free Printable below and print out using a color printer. I used regular copy paper because that is what I had on hand, but I would recommend cardstock or heavy weight copy paper.

Cut out the rectangles and write your personal message in the blank rectangle. You can decide how many HAPPYs you want. I went with 4.

Printable assembled

Attach Divine Twine (I used Holiday) to the back of each rectangle using Petite Stickys (I used Red Stripes). Use 2 Petite Stickys on the last rectangle to keep it from tilting forward.

Printable back

And ta-da! Your card is ready to mail to friends or family or you use it as decoration at home. If you are mailing it out, it fits nicely in a #10 envelope.

If you download it, leave a comment and let me know. Thanks!

Free Printable ~ Holiday Garland

November 28th, 2010 § 58 comments § permalink

Back in February I offered a free Valentine’s Day garlands printable and people seemed to like it. A reader asked about a holiday garland. Great idea!

This time around there are two sheets. You can mix and match the words to create your own sayings. There are several tiny images to place at the beginning and end of words + they also make great gift tags.

Use as gift tags too

You can use tape (yea! another reason to use Japanese Masking Tape!) to hang a garland on your front door, mantle or wall. One attached to a large wrapped gift would be nifty too.

If you download this printable, it would be lovely if you’d leave a comment. It’s fun to see who and how many people enjoy it. Feel free to spread the word. Enjoy!

New Stationery Designs

October 25th, 2010 § 4 comments § permalink

My fantasy job is to design paper goods (stationery, invites, labels etc) all day long. But since filling orders, shipping, bookkeeping etc. takes up most of my work day I don’t get to do much designing anymore. (I’m not complaining. I appreciate each and every person who has ordered from Whisker Graphics. Truly I do! ) But when it was one of my best pals birthday last month, some new designs were in order. Denise requested stationery for her gift and here’s what I created for her.

The New Whisker Graphics Website

May 18th, 2010 § 10 comments § permalink

I feel like Steve Martin the The Jerk when the new phone book arrives.

I’m am beyond thrilled to announce that the new Whisker Graphics website is live!! It went live last night and I went to sleep with the biggest smile plastered across my face. It’s been almost 2 years since I first opened my shop on Etsy; two years of hard work and trying to figure stuff out. There were many moments of feeling like an old dog with a myriad of new tricks to learn. Though I have a (vintage) degree in Graphic Design, when I started Whisker Graphics, I had to teach myself some Illustrator, some Photoshop, and some web stuff (90% of which I’m still clueless about). I started with printed stationery then added editable DIY Printables and eventually Divine Twine.¬† And now, it’s so nice for all my products to have a well-organized, easy-to-navigate home of their own. I worked with an amazing team that I would highly recommend at Aeolidia to make the website a reality. Shoshanna and Arianne were beyond patience and helpful every single step of the way.

Here are just some of the things I LOVE about my new site:
– Customers can immediately download their Printables after checkout (no more waiting for me to email the file)
– The Printables are easily purchased in different color choices
– It has a Mailing List sign up (and Aeolidia designed a pretty coordinating newsletter template for me too)
– My wholesale customers can place their orders on the site too (easier for them, easier for me, yeah!)
– There’s a whole page devoted to Questions and Answers about how the Printables work
– Customers can sign up to be notified of when the new colors of Divine Twine are in stock by clicking the “Request re-stock notice” on the item page (and the system automatically emails them when I stock the store!)
– The time saved by not having to relist items that sell and emailing order and shipping notifications
– The ability to have multiple quantities available within a single item listing

A HUGE THANK YOU to my family, every friend (both web and in-person) and customer who encouraged and supported me along the way!

I’m going to ride this good-feeling wave of accomplishment until the next new trick I need to learn presents itself. That’s likely to be tomorrow!

Sneak Peek of New Site

May 12th, 2010 § 5 comments § permalink

I’m so not good at waiting. I was the kid who would daily squeeze and shake (and on occasion maybe take a little, teeny tiny peek of) my presents under the tree on the days leading up to Christmas. Well, for those of you who can relate, here a little tiny peek of the new Whisker Graphics website that’s coming soon. It’s been 3 months of hard work from the team at Aeolidia and myself, but it’s going to be worth it. I’m so excited!!

Bakers Twine Packaging

I’ve been playing around a bit trying to figure out a simple, clean packaging for the bakers twine. Came up with a name for it too.
