Garden Numbers

One of the projects STDO works on every year is not pretty!  No colors.  No decoration.

But it is useful.

There is a community garden project in Milwaukee that is pretty darn cool;  Every spring, people can sign up for a little garden plot.

Those plots need to be numbered.  Not something too permanent, but it has to be durable.  It needs to handle the weather outside for the spring and summer.

I make laminated cards for this.  But it's not quite as easy as it sounds- if you just laminate a page and cut out the numbers, water can get right in through the sides of the laminated card.  The trick is to have a laminate border around the card.

Then we use a good thick outdoor double sided tape.

If you live in downtown MKE, you might have seen these garden plots around local parks.

Castle save the date magnet

Since launching the heart shaped magnet section this past February, there have been a few new custom designs, but this one is probably my favorite.

The couple is getting married at a castle, and didn't have specific colors to include, so I thought that I would see how a castle silhouette + a dawn sky would look.

Turns out, it looks beautiful:

No doubt this would work well for many a wedding, just for a romantic theme, if not more specifically those Disney and castle weddings.

This magnet is about 4x3.5 inches.  Check out pricing for the heart shaped magnets here:

Mention this post in an email to during 2015 and she will mail you a free heart shaped sample magnet.  Random design though.  And only to USA + Canada addresses.

Wedding Program for Baseball themed weddings

As usual, a lot of the people who ordered sports themed save the dates or invitations have me working on yet more awesome sports themed things for their weddings.  Today, I have a baseball themed wedding program to show you.

It is not complicated - it is a folded card printed inside and out.  What makes it cool is the red baseball stitches along the outside (wraps around front and back).

Even for simple programs, I like to go with 70lb card stock instead of a thinner paper.  

Pricing as of 2016:
25 for $60.00 plus $8.00 shipping
50 for $100.00 plus $10.00 shipping
75 for $140.00 plus $12.00 shipping
