100 Sales and Future Design Plans

I just got my 100th sale yesterday!  How exciting!

I just wanted to say thanks to all my customers!

I've been selling on Etsy for 7 months now.  It's been a lot of hard work, but it's also been a lot of fun.  I really enjoy designing things to sell, especially the digital scrapbook paper, candy stickers, and cupcake toppers.

When I first thought about trying Etsy, I expected my main focus would be on creating items for customers who were interested in scrapbooking.

But now 7 months after opening shop and seeing what is working best for me, I have moved more into party supplies.  That sure is a surprise and has caused me to re-think what I will be creating to sell in the future.

You can definitely look forward to more digital scrapbook paper, candy stickers, and cupcake toppers, as well as the occasional pack of printable stationery.

I also want to start making printable party banners and party favor tags to match the designs on my candy stickers and cupcake toppers so customers can have more of a complete party package.

I'm also planning to eventually create a few Etsy shop sets which include the shop banners, avatars, and reserved listing images that are needed to sell on Etsy.  I hope this will help out other sellers who are not able to make their own.

I have so many ideas for future items.  I can't wait to get started!

NEW Digital Scrapbook Papers

I just added four new digital scrapbook papers in my Etsy shop.

Each pack features 10 digital papers with stars, diagonal stripes, and dots.  The papers are all 12 x 12 inches and saved at 300 dpi for high quality images.

This first pack is in seafoam green and lavender.  These colors are so soft and pretty!

This pack is bright and fun in blue, lime green, and yellow.

These digital papers are in burgundy, black, and gold.

The last new pack of digital scrapbook papers is in a very pretty teal with purple and gray.

You can find all these new scrapbook packs and many more in my Etsy shop.

Personalized Graduation Cupcake Toppers

These personalized graduation cupcake toppers are a recent addition to my Etsy Shop.  They can have the graduate's name, school name, date of graduation, or any other words you might like.

This style of cupcake toppers has a classy look to it with the extra scallop.

These would also be great for girl graduates who want something a little more feminine, since the extra scallop looks a little like lace.

As with my other cupcake toppers for graduation, these can be customized to match your school colors.  The picture shows navy and orange, but I can do them in any colors you need.

I don't have particular candy stickers to match this design, but I currently have two options for graduation candy stickers.  Both would go great with these cupcake toppers:

NEW Baby Shower Cupcake Toppers

Yesterday I listed two new items in my Etsy shop - baby shower cupcake toppers for both boys and girls.

I really like how these turned out.  I added an extra scallop to the design to make it look extra pretty.

Here are the baby shower cupcake toppers for mothers who are expecting a girl.  They are in two shades of pink and will be personalized with the expectant mother's name.

The baby shower cupcake toppers for expectant mothers of boys are the same design, but in two shades of blue. 

Both cupcake toppers are DIY - simply print them and punch them out with a 2-inch scallop or circle punch that you can purchase at your local craft store or online.  Then tape or glue a lollipop or cookie stick to the back.  So easy!

You can purchase the baby shower cupcake toppers at the following links:

NEW Graduation Candy Stickers

Here are the graduation candy stickers that match my new cupcake toppers in purple and black.

These graduation stickers fit perfectly on the bottom of wrapped chocolates.

They have graduation caps, stripes, and some say "Class of 2012," "Congrats (graduate)," and the name of the school.

These are printable stickers that you print & punch out yourself using a 3/4" (.75) circle punch.  You can buy a punch at your local craft store or online.

I can customize the stickers to match your own school colors.  You can keep them in black & purple, or I can make them in red and blue, orange and navy, blue and white, etc.

These graduation candy stickers are available in my Etsy shop.

Have a good day!
