A Vintage Peacock Favor Gift Tag Freebie!

Vintage Peacock Wedding Favor Gift Tags, Free download

Just for fun today, I created this Vintage Peacock punchable gift tag.  He’s a free download.  All you have to do to claim him is go to my facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/audrey.jeannes.expressions (or click on the image and it will take you there).  You may have to scroll through posts to find him or you can go to my albums and look for “Freebie” as the title.

Inexpensive yet Elegant Table Card Numbers, any Color Background

While you’re there would you please consider “liking” my page?  We’re working toward reaching 500 “likes” and then there will be a link to a $4.95 digital clip art Easter kit for FREE!  If you have a friend that would enjoy the freebie too, would you consider letting them know about it for me as well.  It’s all about connecting!

Elegant "Vintage Peacock" Save the Dates available at Zazzle

To use these as Favor tags for a wedding reception or bridal shower, you can either hand write on them after printing, or typeset your names on them before printing.  This requires some graphic program or Microsoft Word knowledge.  Make sure you use as heavy a card stock as your printer can manage, it makes a difference in the finished product.  To create the tags, simply either cut them out on a paper trimmer, or use a square or round punch.  I left lots of background to give you more options.   Punch a hole in the top and use a lovely ribbon to affix them to your favors and you have a beautifully elegant touch for your wedding reception tables, bridal shower decor or other party event.

Antique Vintage Peacock Wedding Invitation, Monogrammed Custom Color

There are invitations, RSVPs and other stationery goods in a wide variety of background colors, that have been designed to match this collection.  I’ve linked just a couple here in this post, but you can find a wide selection of peacock designs – from vintage to contemporary and in many different colorways in my store.

Home From the CHA Show & Very Inspired!

NOTE:  JUST CLICK ON ANY IMAGE TO GO TO SEE IT LARGER IN MY ZAZZLE STORE.

CHA, the Craft & Hobby Association Show was held in Los Angeles this year at the end of January.  It is always one of my favorite shows to attend.  It is filled with such incredible creativiy – both in the art being used to create the craft, scrapbooking and other kits that are offered and in the creativity of the designers who are creating projects from that artwork.

Designers use existing products to create new and fun crafts with.  Their interpretation of the artwork is incredibly fun and diverse.  There were “make and takes” every where you turned.  Displays of projects and extravagant backdrops or centerpieces such as paper dressed mannequins were all around.  Unfortunately my camera malfunctioned and I don’t have my pictures to share with you.  I will ask my daughter if I can take a peek at her pictures and see if I can add later.

I didn’t get to do as much wandering around as I usually do.  My time was mostly filled with meetings – some of which were very productive meetings (so I’m not whining, LOL!)  The other place the bulk of my time was spent was getting to spend time with some very special artist friends – you know who you are!  My artist friends inspire me so much.  I love seeing what they’re doing, discussing the industry and our goals going forward.  I’m friends with some VERY motivating people!

If you’re snowed in, how about beating the boredom by crafting something with all of those supplies you have stashed away?  How about pulling out your scrapbook papers and creating 5 or 5 greeting cards to have ready to use when the need arises?  I love to make a mess just once and end up with lots of goodies to use later throughout the year.  Try making some matching gift tags to add to your birthday or Christmas gifts during the next year.  It’s a wonderful way to pass a cold and miserable day with the warm sense of joy creating brings.

Kids driving you nuts?  Bring out your craft goodies and set them to work creating.  You might be amazed how much they enjoy the time and remember it fondly decades later (as I do my Mom’s rainy day projects!)

I thought I would also share some of my newest invitations in my two Zazzle stores.  If you know a young bride that is getting married this year, or a new mother welcoming a baby, I would love if you would pass my website along to her!

To Warm Your Heart New, Coastal Beachy Collections

A New Year means time for new art!  I’ve been working hard on some new coastal, beach style artwork and just finished this collection enough to have it designed into 3 complete wedding ensembles.  If you’re daring, they mix and match beautifully!

I have a Great White Egret, a Sea Horse and a Green Sea Turtle (by the way, did you know they aren’t green?!)  If you’re looking for destination wedding invitations, I can add the island or other name of your wedding location in the elegant calligraphy that is featured.

These are classic, elegant and yet very trend forward.  I hope you’ll enjoy taking a peek!

This collection also has several wedding or anniversary prints that are suitable for framing.  Shown here with the Green Sea Turtle design, this one is available in all three motifs.  Perfect for an upcoming wedding gift, for your own home or for a special anniversary.

If you’re a coastal person and have suggestions for other art I could add to this collection, please comment on this post I would LOVE to hear from you!

Just click on any picture and it will take you to that item in my Zazzle store.  From there, if you would like to see more options of items available, just look above the image and you’ll see a file tree that looks like: AudreyJeanne > Everything Wedding! > Beach – Coastal – Ocean > Sea Horse.  The last name listed is the specific collection and the ones prior to it are the various section in the store.  You can also copy the title of any item in the search function and it will show you all of the items available in that collection design.

Coming Soon, First Release Today

NEW!  Personalized art prints suitable for framing.  Available for wedding or anniversary gifts.  Personalize with your names and dates.  Sizes available both 11″ square (fits nicely on a 12″ scrap book paper in a 12″ scrapbook) and 12″ square (fits stock frames designed for scrapbook pages).

I began my business many years ago as a calligrapher.  At the time I didn’t know how to paint or draw.  In designing calligraphy pieces for people I discovered that I needed to find ways to add color and interest to them and thus began my journey into the world of art.

For many years we had a framed print line that we sold at craft fairs all throughout the state of California.  Our favorite being the Harvest Festivals.  Not a fall passes by that we don’t reminisce fondly about those days (amazing how memories of the pain and exhaustion passes after time, LOL!)

We also wholesaled our product to about 4,000 stores during the 90’s and up until 2006.  At that time it simply became too much to manage with the growth of my licensing business and the time commitments that were involved.  We have continued to sell to individuals over the years and have made dear, dear friends with many of our repeat customers – you know who you are 🙂

With my venturing into Zazzle this past year and especially with my growing wedding invitation business, it’s been much on my heart to bring back the calligraphy line but in a new way, with new art for a new generation.  Today is the very first piece that I am releasing.  These are being sold as prints that can be framed or displayed in a scrapbook.  You can order them and take them to your local Michael’s or frame shop.  They can be framed without mats or matted and framed as suits your decor.

Look for many more in the days and months to come.  What I love about this option is that I can do 30 or more versions of 1st Corinthians 13 and not have to have a catalog that shows them all!  The next designs to come will be my best sellers “Lord, Help me to Build a Healthy Child” and “To Build a Lasting Love.”

Also shown in this post are the Wedding Invitations that match.  This collection is called “Trellis Rose Vintage” and has a wide range of wedding related products created to match.  Perfect for spring and summer weddings, the collection will be fully finished by the New Year.  Click on any picture to go to that item in the store.

New Art, New Wedding Invitation Collection “Peacock Feathers”

Peacock Feathers Reception Invitation Card

Original watercolor art by Audrey Jeanne Roberts

This is a coordinating Reception Invitation card for the contemporary, sophisticated “Peacock Feathers” wedding ensemble. Featuring stylized, hand watercolored Peacock feathers with your choice of background color, shown here in aqua blue.  I have created this collection in 6 colors at the moment, but it can be custom colored to your specific wedding colors should you like.  To see the reverse side of these invitation, just click on the picture and it will take you to them.

I love Peacocks and always have.  They remind me of my days spent at the San Diego Zoo as a young child.  The entrance of the zoo is populated by quite a few Peacocks and they loved to show off their plumage to the adoring crowds.  When I moved to the country the first time I seriously thought of raising some… until I heard how LOUD and irritating their screech is, LOL!  Then I decided to paint them instead.

Lots more coming in the days ahead, that is if I can keep on painting and not have to stop 🙂  In my business you never really know what you’re doing in the next hour let alone tomorrow!

More New Wedding Invitations Designed from Original Water Color Art

ZAZZLE store Wedding Invitations

I have been a busy bee on this beautiful spring day!  I have created three more wedding collections in my Zazzle store.

Now that I have somewhat figured out how to do this, it’s much quicker to do and I’m having a great time at it.

By the way, each design is offered in several sizes and layouts, RSVP cards, Thank You notes, Wedding Invitation Seals, Matching postage (custom designed US Postage stamps) and other coordinating products.

Today will be my last day for a while to create new designs as tomorrow I will turn my attention to the display images for the MHS Licensing booth for the Surtex show.  All of the designs that I am creating will also be available for licensing by any stationery manufacturer.  Should they be licensed I will simply pull them from my store.

My Zazzle Store is Filling Up

I’ve had a little extra time to work on some projects of my own before hitting the final stretch run to The Surtex Show.  One of those projects is working on a line of Wedding Invitations and Stationery that will be going up at Zazzle.  The first of the designs made it into the store today.  With a wedding last September and another one in May, my head has been buried  in LOTS of Wedding magazines and looking at the types of invitations that are being offered. It has really inspired me!

These two are made out of my brand new art “Le Chocolatier,” that is about 90% completed.  I have a couple more sinfully Chocolate desserts to paint yet.  It’s possible, the inspiration alone has put five pounds on me, LOL!

Here is THE LINK TO MY ZAZZLE STORE. An invitation., professionally printed including an envelope is only $1.30- $1.80 depending on the size.   Boy, I wish this kind of service had been available 15 years ago when my beloved and I tied the knot.

By the way, anybody that knows WordPress and Zazzle, if you can give me any pointers in installing the Zazzle slide show without it taking over my whole blog I’d be VERY appreciative!!!
