Finding my clip art making others happy makes me smile

Every now and then I spot my clip art in use by a non-profit, school or club to make flyers, posters or newsletters.

This week I was at a charity crafts fair in the lobby of Reading Hospital and spotted one of my favorite holiday clip art images, Christmas clip art of pies in a country pie carrier, on a flyer from a local orchard offering to take orders for fresh baked pies for the holiday. I sampled the cherry pie - YUMMY!

New Sweet Holiday Design Template Candy Canes Mandala

Christmas Sweets Mandala Adult Coloring Page
My latest craving for holiday sweets is, yes, peppermint candy canes.

I just finished this new holiday wreath /  mandala coloring page design for my main web site's new and popular adult coloring pages section.

I created this design using a favorite candy cane heart line art image from a few years ago. The basic design has two candy canes and a bow. The finished mandala design has 24 candy canes with lots of ribbons and of course, twinkling stars.

If I have the time, this candy cane heart wreath line art design may become the centerpiece for my holiday tables, embroidered in white on white.  But if you'd rather just color it in, have a sweet time!

New Look, More Clip Art and Borders in 2014

I've decided to expand this blog in 2014, to include all my thematic clip art, borders, die cuts, digital stamps and craft projects in one place - here! I'll be creating pages on this blog for each of the holiday clip art collections I've shared in my single-holiday blogs. I'll also be making special sections on this blog with downloads for digital stamps, die cut templates and scannable shapes you can use with popular craft cutters.

Turkey Thanksgiving Card Craft

Turkey Paper Craft Card
Gobble up this funny Thanksgiving turkey card craft sheet. It's easy to make a paper craft die cut card for Thanksgiving using this printable template from that includes the full color turkey and feathers plus a calligraphy quote for the inside flap.

I used my Silhouette Cameo craft cutter to trace and cut out the turkey and his feathers. He can also be cut out using a craft knife.

Print, cut out and glue Tom Turkey onto your own sheet of card stock. Add some ribbon (I used raffia on mine) and then hand letter a sentiment for the inside or use the presized quote word art (printable also included for this). I printed the quote on vellum, trimmed it with craft edging scissors, then top-glued it on the inside flap of the card.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Halfway to St. Patrick's Day - one month away

Celtic Knot Frame Border
Ireland was on my mind this week so I pulled out my redrawn knots line art and made a new Celtic frame border.

Make a flyer, a poster, a picture frame or turn it on its side and design a name tag for your party or blarney-filled beer bash to celebrate Halfway to St. Patrick's Day (September 17).

Better still, use this frame as a coloring page and add your own design in the center space.
