Just had to add a couple more for ya! Just follow the directions from my last post below! Hope you enjoy them!

FREEBIE from Me!

After talking with my good friend, Lori, at By Lori Designs, I thought I'd jump on the digital bandwagon & offer up some FREE digital phrases! She is starting her own digital stamp company (go see her FREEBIE---it's adorable!!) & since I love doing personalization with my candy bar wrappers she suggested I do some digital words & phrases! SO.... here's a cute, popular phrase you might be able to use & I made them up in several font designs for added flexibility in your card & page designs! Hope you like them! I am thinking of offering them for sale at a SUPER low price later on, so let me know what you think! Just right click on the image & save to your computer, print, cut out & craft away! I have them in 300 dpi so they should print up nice & clear! Thanks for stopping by!

2 Adorable Wrappers to share!

As you know, I love to design candy bar wrappers using clipart from my favorite artists, but I also love it when I find them already designed...all I do is add the text!! These are from my friend, Trina Clark, at! I absolutely LOVE her work! I actually got to meet her once at a craft show & she placed an order from me! She & her hubby were so fun to talk with! Anyway...just thought I'd give you some more ideas on just how many ways you can use candy wrappers in your everyday life! I've said it before & I'll say it again...not many people are gonna turn down a candy bar, especially when it's personalized just for them! They are a fun, inexpensive way to say....anything!
