New Product Release at Belinda’s Crafts – two new Valentine’s cards


Hello Everyone, happy Tuesday! I am pleased to share with you two new cards I created to put on my Etsy shop.  Lately I haven’t spend much time talking about my experience with developing this company. One of my goals of this site when I created it was to document my journey creating this company as well as share my personal creative endeavors. I now know after running this company for almost two years, that there is definitely an ebb and flow a peak and a valley when it comes to the process. I have times where I am bursting at the seams with ideas and production is up and then there are times when I can’t break past my procrastination or life with two little boys keep me from even sitting at my desk to create.


An important thing for me is to feel good with taking a step back from time to time and not feeling guilty. It’s a balance.  A good friend of mine who had her own business once told me that the company more or less will consume me as it did for her. So I have made it a point to keep mindful of boundaries. To still create fun stuff for me and this blog is one example of that.  It is one of those outlets that lets me babble and share ideas with friends. So when I completed these cards a few days ago, I was pleased to have something for the shop but worked on not beating myself up for not having more to products to sell. Because at the end of the day, I have been having fun and been playing Wii with my boys. I simply refuse to miss out on this goodness that is before me.

The two cards are Valentine cards that I created using lovely Saturated Canary digis.  I used both a Basic Grey collection and My Minds Eye for the paper and super cute MFT stamps for the sentiments. I hope you enjoy them. I will be placing them up on Etsy later today.

Have a blessed day my friends!



New Product Release at Belinda’s Crafts – Halloween card!

New product release at Belinda's Crafts.

This new Halloween card can be found at Belinda’s Crafts.

Well the summer is over and I am back at Belinda’s Crafts to design and develop new products. I took the entire summer off from work and spent it with my family. I was nervous to do this at first because I am just starting this company. One thing I vowed about my company from the start was to learn to manage my time so that I can be productive and also experience the blessings of family.  So my office hours are when they are in school. Last year, I let work spill over at times but this year, I am going to be more strict about my time. It is a work in progress.

Over the summer I bought a Silhouette Portrait machine and will definitely be incorporating this into my products. I enjoy playing around with it and have learned a great deal about it’s capabilities. And sometime in the future I will also be offering digital products at Belinda’s Crafts. More about that later.

On this first Halloween card, I tried to stray away from some of the more traditional colors for witches and incorporate this lovely aqua that has become quite a favorite color of mine to work with as of late.  I even pulled out my Tim Holtz tiny attacher to attach the sentiment to the card.  I am always looking for an excuse to staple something.

Well I am going to go back to work but will be sure to share more soon.

Have a blessed day!
