Our Etsy store is growing—new products are up!

blog-post-image-with-new-etsy-products

Now available from our Etsy store are our greeting card boxes, elastic stretch loops, gold seals, adhesive foam pieces and glue tape—all great tools for making and packaging handmade note cards!

Several weeks ago we announced our Etsy store was live, and that we were selling a new kraft note card set; now we have five more products available, and we’re excited about reaching out to more DIY aficionados!

We’ve listed more tools for cardmakers, scrapbookers and other crafters alike: soft fold clear plastic boxes (in standard A2, A6 and A7 sizes), 10″ elastic stretch loops (in 18 metallic and matte colors), gold seals (in 1″ and 1-1/4″ sizes), adhesive foam pieces (squares, strips and circles), and the glue tape pen. Although our regular readers might already recognize these products from Oak Creek Printworks, we hope you’ll share the news with those you know who already use Etsy and might be interested in shopping from us.

Check out our Etsy store, and stay tuned for more updates as we continue to grow our Etsy product offerings!

Broaden your vison with panoramas and apps

Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah takes on an other-worldly landscape, captured here in 11 different photos. I walked away from the computer for a couple of hours while Photoshop’s Photomerge toiled away. The composite yielded a file nearly a gigabyte in size with a remarkable amount of detail. The sweeping landscape’s curved edges may bother some, but, in my opinion they add to the drama.

The sweeping landscape’s curved edges may bother some, but, in my opinion they add to the drama.

Looking to make your images unique? Want to see things from a new perspective? Try experimenting with Photoshop’s Photomerge feature or AutoStitch app to combine numerous images into a single wide angle view. It’s all automated. Just select the images you want to merge, sit back, and let Photoshop do the rest.

buckwheat and beePerhaps you’re looking for something a little more retro. Thanks to the new digital cameras and Smartphones, we’re able to capture well-lit, sharp focus images, so what’s the big deal? Anyone can take “nice” pictures these days. So, let’s look at images differently and carefully mess them up like we used to do by accident.

After reviewing my photos of the busy bees, I realized that the plants they were all attracted to were buckwheat plants. So, I decided to grunge up the photo with an app and create the masking tape label with “B is for…”, surprise, not bee. Two apps were used in the creation of the photo—Pic Grunger and Labelbox.

Want to learn more about the phone apps? Check out former OCPW featured artist, Holly Higbee-Jansen’s Photographic Explorations. Here you’ll learn about Holly’s favorite phone apps, as well as online and in-person workshops and photography coaching.

Can We Lose Weight and Eat What We Love? Absolutely Yes…But Not By The Truckload!

Okay, so you want to lose weight and you’re sick of monitoring how many calories you eat.  Furthermore, you don’t want to move off the sofa!  I get it, and I’m in the same boat.  Yes, I’m a Personal Trainer and Weight Loss Specialist and I feel exactly the same way.  So what do I do about it?  I keep moving!

The human body is a remarkable machine that can manage many extremes of diet…to a point.  In conditions of either surplus or deficit of energy, the body will not be able to maintain a steady weight.  What does this mean for those of us who love coffee ice cream?  It means that you can eat what you love in moderation and MOVE MORE.  The big question mark is knowing how much you’re burning at any given time.   Enter Fitbit®.  I wear one and I love it!

FitBit® is a tracker that measures movement in three dimensions with the help of an accelerometer.  It follows your sleep quality, steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned and physical activity.  This device makes us conscious of our activities on a daily basis and encourages a more energetic lifestyle.  The bottom line is that we all burn energy at a different rate.  If you know the rate at which you burn calories, you can gauge your energy intake.

So rise from that sofa and move!
