Get All The 50's Tote Graphics Free!

Remember my 50's tote bag?

And remember how I created some graphics that I made available as a free download... 

But others were graphics from the Graphics Fairy and I altered them.

Well the Karen from the Graphics Fairy was nice enough to put my altered versions back up on her site. So if you'd like to get all the graphics I used you can download them here and here!

Jack-o-lantern Surprise Invitation Tutorial- A new Venture

This Jack-o-lantern holds a fun little secret. If you lift his lid he reveals a special invitation or greeting. There's also another surprise... it's my first tutorial/pattern in my new Etsy shop!

I've struggled with the idea of selling on Etsy for a long time and kept coming back to the same thing- I don't want to make a lots of crafts to sell. But I do love making new crafts and sharing those ideas and how-to's with people. So creating patterns and tutorials seemed like the perfect thing!

The pdf file tutorial includes:
        • A detailed step by step tutorial with photos 
        • Printable tracing templates
        • Printable invitation cards
        • And six bonus face templates 
The card was designed as an invitation but it can easily be made into a greeting card. And although the Jack-o-lantern theme is for Halloween the face can be omitted to make a pumpkin card suitable for Fall or Thanksgiving. 

I have a few more listings I'm working on. In the meantime I hope some of you who have Etsy experience (both shoppers and sellers) will let me know what you think about my first listing.

And rest assured... just because I'm now putting patterns and tutorials into an Etsy shop... that doesn't mean I'll stop doing free downloads and all the tutorials here on MegaCrafty.
