Thank you so much for your kind comments about the felt illustrations I did for the holiday Kleenex boxes from a few posts back. I really feel fortunate these days to be able to hang onto some of my former freelance connections. By the way, I have heard about many sightings at Target from you! I went back to mine and they were cleaned out of the holiday boxes already! Rats, that’s what I planned to give everyone for Christmas this year! (By the way, if you do buy some of the holiday Kleenex boxes, be sure to hang on to them. They make great gift boxes! I know, it’s kind of weird, but that’s how I roll.)
Speaking of felt illustration…do you remember these coupl’a birds?
I created these two felted designs ages ago to photograph for a set of holiday cards. They were fairly popular last year, so I decided it was time to offer them again!
I went with a new printer this year and I am very happy with the results. The felted images reproduced well on the cards. However, the cards themselves are a bit challenging to photograph. I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it. :)
Each set of 4 has 2 nest designs and 2 partridge/pear designs. They are available now in my etsy shop.
New this year is a set of 4 cards with 4 different photographs of my favorite wooly cupcakes!
Each set has one card each of: the Cupcake Pincushion, the Cupcake Tapemeasure, the Cupcake Ornament, and the bird’s eye view of the Cupcake Pincushions. These would be fun for your own correspondence or you could give the set to a friend as a gift. These are ready over at etsy as well.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to step away from this computer. I hear there’s a beautiful fall day outside and I don’t want to miss it!
All of the cards are lovely, what beautiful work you do.
Betz, I went into Marshall’s/Home Goods today, and saw a bunch of knock-off cupcake ornaments that are DEFINITELY Betz White wannabes…made in China, of course. Didn’t know if you’ve run across these, but it ticked me off. And for $3.99. Is imitation the best form of flattery? I just had to tell you.
Love the cupcake cards! May have to get a set or two for birthday cards.
Last year I had my whole family snatching the Kleenex boxes when they saw them. This yr I already ran out and bought 4 but…my Target didn’t have the Green tree boxes! Drats! So on to alert the rest of the family again!! :)
Love your blog and the beautiful projects!
These are great!
i WAS at target the other day…and i called my husband and kids back from the toys to show them your tissue boxes…i was like “i know the woman who made these”…well…i don’t “know” her, i read her blog, and she didn’t make them, she designed the box…i was so excited…i think my husband (and a woman walking by) thought i was a crazy lady…but i thought it was cool…they look great! i love your blog!
Your tissue boxes are so cute! I just saw them in the Target in Frederick yesterday. I think that’s not too far from you. Hopefully you can get over there and do some Christmas shopping before they are gone!
Ohh, beautiful cards. What a wonderful way to create personalized holiday cards! I just love the wooly cupcake ones. So adorably cute. Great idea…
You are so creative and we can really tell that you put lots of thought in your work.
Betz – I was delighted to find your Kleenex boxes at Target Greatland in Columbia, MD. I stocked up! And as a previous poster said, it’s neat to be able to say I “know” the designer.
they are perfectly yummy for any occasion. wonderful prints.
wow, I loved your blog and everything you do! Your work is gorgeous, I wish I had half of your talent!…
Very cute ideas!!! Inspiring as always.
Good grief they’re adorable! Not that I expected anything less from you, but still. Really wonderful, Betz.
your birds are beautiful, a lot of colors !!! I like them…
How cute!! I looove the felted cupcakes, and the cards look pretty nice, too.
I was in Target this past week and spied your Kleenex boxes. I got one of each! Oh, I love them. My daughter & granddaughter thought I was nuts getting so excited over the Kleenex boxes, but I told them I “know” the woman that made them. HeeHee! I may get more before I head back to Illinois next week.
Love the cards. Lynn
Betz, if you still need to stock up, I just saw your tissue boxes in the Target in Greenbelt, MD this morning :) Very cute!
Thanks, Megan, I’m all stocked up now!
I have loved these since I first saw them and was inspired to use felt for making my birth announcements http://chazandginger.blogspot.com/2010/03/announcement.html
Thanks for the great idea!
