Default Re: How does she make these centers?

I got an email a few weeks ago (I'm on her update list). She said that she is shutting down her site for a while and most of her images will be discontinued. She brought back some of her discontinued ones till her store closes (which I believe is 8/14- she pushed the close date back). She said she is taking her business in a "new" direction. She said she will still be doing graphic design, but in a different format. As of now, she is keeping it a secret. So, I'm not sure if she will still be doing images or not.

I have loved her images and have bought tons of them over the past couple of years. She always ran 50% off sales, so you could get them for less than $1. I was disappointed when she started really scaling back new images due to her family life I think. So, I guess to answer your question, yes if she does stop making these graphics and you offered similar graphics, cute mousehead, m2mg graphics, girly graphics ,etc, at her prices there would probably be a market for it.

And if so would you think anyone would be interested if I opened up a shop that offered those type of images.

It is a plastic type material that you color, design in one size, cut to shape, then you bake it and it "shrinks" and is really hard. I used to get it when I was a kid and make little trinkets.

My mom just gave me a sheet of the inkjet type which I didn't know anything about. I have yet to try it but think it would work great for custom orders because you can just create a graphic on your computer and print it out., then cut and bake.

I have a friend that does this its not done with a shrinky dink though never thought of using one of those! she uses a program on her computer buys transfer paper prints out the design she wants to match her ribbon and uses a iron to transfer it on anything she wants she also buys plain colored ribbon and does the same to transfer the same design onto the ribbon to make it custom very cute! too time consuming for me though. She sprays the center with aileens stiffin quick to make it stiff and stand up since it is fabric ill try to find a pic of one of hers to post on here i think he has a tutorial also Hope this helps

I had to go shopping! I just bought some from her! I love her stuff. I bought the sparkles from her years back and she was a dream to do business with!

I had completely forgot about Shrinky Dinks! When I was little we used to do them.

Very cute idea. I know I will be looking for this in the future. I loved doing Shrinky Dinks when I was a kid as well. We used to make necklaces with ours.
