Custom Printed Logo Shopping Bag

NEW Custom printed items Coming this week to the SMBdesign shop at Etsy!

I have my new ECO friendly LED digital press and am in the process of rolling out a line of products catering to the needs of the HANDMADE community...

"By Handmade FOR HANDMADE"

First out of the box ( or should I say bag ) are custom printed hand constructed shopping totes with three options available: with full color logo ONLY printed front and back; Full color logo + Image printed front and back; OR full background patterns overall. Imagine your shop having it's own patterned designer tote like Gucci or DB ( dooney & bourke ). Ooh-La-La!

No minimum quantities. Order just what you need as you need them. Each bag printed and hand-constructed with 3/8" eyelets for customized lacing with handles of your choice - dimensions: 4 1/2"w x 3"d x 5"h. Handle options will be sold separately. As handmade artisans, I envision each shop owner would want the option to to style/dress their own bag as desired.

All inquiries, please email [ sbartist1107 at yahoo dot com ].

SMBdesign shop offers all printed materials, is custom order and international shipping friendly and thinking GREEN : ) sb

Operation Write Home

Welcome to the next stop on the Operation Write Home's Independence Day Blog Tour. To start at the beginning, CLICK HERE to go to the OWH Star & Stamps Page. Thanks for dropping by.

For this card, I gathered up a piece of teal cardstock, some paper scraps, a stamped cupcake from a previous project colored with Zig writers and Stickles Glitter Adhesive {I know, I know, no glitter is allowed for OWH cards - but this is only for screen viewers ONLY : ) }. The background is made from a piece of leftover craft fun foam run through my cuttlebug. So fun! I rubbed some platinum pearlescent over the embossing to bring out the detail. So quick and easy and the result is very IM"PRESS"IVE.

Aren't I clever with words?

I will be spending the weekend with friends and family and getting in some quality artsy-craftsy time with a pile of things waiting to be artfully upcycled. What projects are you working on this 3-day weekend?

Have a Fun and Safe 4th of July Holiday everyone!!! Thanks for supporting Operation Write Home and all of our men & women in uniform : ) SMb

New DIGI Stamps

While hopping on the OWH Memorial Day Bloghop, I came across so many creative blogs, with so many great ideas and DIGI stamp images created by great illustrators. A lightbulb in my head went off - I, too have done this already, so I've started with these two and more to come. These are perfect for those Holiday cards we all try to get a jumpstart on in July. Please click on the image and it will take you to my zibbet shop for checkout. Thanks for looking and happy crafting : ) SMb

Operation Write Home
Memorial Day Bloghop

Welcome "Hoppers" to my page SMBdesign - which is a blog for my shop on Etsy. My name is Susan and I am so proud to participate for the second year now.

Operation Write Home began in 2007 with just a few cards made by friends on a message board; what began as an outlet for a hobby has become a much larger mission to help heroes keep in touch with home - and the effort has been joined by thousands of cardmakers!

OWH receives handmade cards donated by crafters across America (and beyond!). Cardmakers range in age, location, and level of skill; cards are provided by individuals and groups, schools and scouts, companies and churches. All have one primary thing in common: a desire to serve those who defend our nation!

Cards are mailed to one of our volunteer shippers in quanities both small and large. The shippers process, sort, repair, and document each donation, and then pack and ship boxes of over 300 cards each to our contacts. Our heroes request cards (families may also request on their behalf; we serve all branches in all deployed locations. Click Here for info on how you can participate.

My youngest sister is in the National Guard [for 2 years now] and was officially deployed on Jan. 5, 2010 from Ft. Lauderdale to report to Fort Hood for preparations to Iraq. I spent the day with her on New Year's Day in Orlando and then at the Deployment Ceremony in Ft. Lauderdale - it was such a treat!

I am so proud and grateful to all the men and women serving our country, and to their families, too - my thoughts and prayers are with you. Happy Memorial Day everyone! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit, please take the following link to the next blog on the hop:

SR Cards by Stephanie... go up, up, and away in a beautiful balloon!

I'm Hosting a Challenge!!! I will create as many cards as comments recieved on all three of my participating blogs [ sbartist : painting in the dark and Salon D'Arte, SMBdesign ]. I am still completing my challenge from last year's hop to make one card for each comment left on each of my three blogs participating [over 300]. I am making cards and collecting cards from friends to send in that will be directed to my sister's deployed location - this is so cool.

I am challenging hoppers to make cards too! Please make your pledge to create on my facebook page and I will organize a gallery of everyone who wants to participate - and - host a card swap, too. I encourage you to join in the fun! To take you back to the "Top of the Hop" click here.

Thanks again : ) Sb
