Handprint Vinyl Tiles

One of the best parts of my new adventure is working with very creative people! My neighbor had such an adorable idea for holiday gifts this year, she asked me to design a tile with handprints to give to grandparents. Her tiles came out so well I had to make one for my own mother (who is the world's best grandma, in my humble opinion! :) )

For this tile I had each child come to my house so I could collect their actual handprints with paint. I also had the older children write their names with a fat marker. I was able to scan the handprints and names in to the computer and turn those images in to cutting files. The tiles were further personalized by using each child's favorite color.

Each tile was personalized with children's names and ages. I have covered some of this information to protect their identities, but hopefully you can tell how adorable the finished tiles are.



Individual handprints could fit on a 6 inch tile, however a multiple handprint design would require a 12 inch tile or other larger 'canvas' such as a wood sign or frame.

PRICING:
Finished 12 inch tile (up to two handprints) - $22
12 inch vinyl design (up to two handprints) - $15

If you wish to create a 6 inch design, or one with more than two handprints please contact me for a pricing quote. Shipping is NOT included in the above price.

Custom Vinyl Frame - Wedding

I was so excited when a very good friend asked me to personalize a framed picture to celebrate her recent marriage. Her favorite color is red, which made a common appearance at her reception. I requested a picture with white, hazy edges and found a beautiful black and red frame. I think the final product came out very beautifully!

LDS Young Women Vinyl 2010 Theme

These designs represent the new LDS Young Women's theme for 2010:

“Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest” (Joshua 1:9).

One of the things I love about this scripture is that there are multiple messages you can pull from it. I thought I would make a few designs to emphasize some of the highlights.

DESIGN A:



DESIGN B:

DESIGN C:



DESIGN D:
You can choose any color for these designs, and with design D you may also choose a second accent color for "thy God."

PRICING:
6" design (vinyl only) - $3.50
Finished 6" tile - $7.00
12" design (vinyl only) - $7.00
Finished 12" tile - $15.00

Pricing does NOT include a stand or shipping, if required.


If you have a different design in mind or would like to add some embellishments please feel free to contact me! I love to design!

Custom Coasters

I thought I would post a sample of a custom job I was hired for. A good friend asked for "Arizona Christmas, but non-cowboy" coasters. These are the designs I came up with. I think the southwestern adobe house with the manger is my favorite.

Custom Snowflakes

How would you like to create your own winter holiday decor? I found the most fun website where you can cut virtual snowflakes. My kids have a blast with this site, you should definitely check it out:

http://snowflakes.barkleyus.com/

I first recommend that you first "Visit the Gallery." There are over 20 million flakes that have been created and saved on this web page, and it is incredibly inspiring to see what other people have created.


Once you are ready to give your own creative talents a go, click on "Make a Flake" in the bottom left corner (if you are still in the gallery). You can then begin to design your own snowflakes. You can preview them along the way to see how your finished product will look. When you are happy with you design click on "Save my Flake."

Fun, right? My kids love playing with this web page. (In fact they just saw me blogging about it and asked if we could make more flakes today...) But why am I talking about this on Toadilly Homemade? Because I can turn your snowflakes in to paper cutouts or vinyl decals! All you need to do is go to the gallery, click on your snowflakes of choice and select "View Image." Your snowflake will open in a new window where you can right click on the flake and save it as an image file. You simply need to email the image files to toadillyhomemade@sbcglobal.net and let me do the rest of the work!

I can cut the snowflakes in any of your favorite colors. If you want to keep it traditional, I have white, baby blue, and frosted (glass etch) vinyl in stock. For a little extra you can jazz up your flakes by choosing royal blue glitter or silver holographic vinyl.

PRICING:

For solid color vinyl and frosted vinyl:

- Two 5.5" flakes - $1.25
- Four 4" flakes - $1.50
- Eight 2.75" flakes - $2.50

For specialty vinyl (silver holographic or royal blue glitter):

- Two 5.5" flakes - $2.50
- Four 4" flakes - $2.75
- Eight 2.75" flakes - $4.00
