Not a good shot. Background is green stripe and letters darker green with black outline. Looks great in person. 8" board.

Love them Eileen. Do you print the paper and the design or just the design on the paper?


Good friends are like stars...You don't always see them, but you always know they're there.

I look thru tons of backgrounds I have aquired and then look thru lots of Fonts to see what looks best with the background. Then a flourish or pic... then have to measure block and adjust size and THEN I can print it....Not as quick as it looks.

Oh I agree that it isn't a small process. I just wanted to know if you used preprinted paper or you printed paper from your computer. Thanks

Those are very nice / Do you make them to sell at craft shows ? I would think they would be good sellers.

These look great and I am sure there is some work involved here. What do you do to the blocks to make them look darker, a stain ??
