This week I have combined my love of creative card making with my love of writing. I spent time browsing various companies who create bookmarks, business cards and fridge magnets. A while ago I purchased business cards but to be honest, I am disappointed with them. I designed them online via the companies creator but they do not really stand out as I would like.
Looking in my stash, I came across cream card, and using Picmonkey.com I designed a fridge magnet. Well, in truth it was going to be a bookmark but I got my cm muddled with mm. I printed them off, added a little sparkle to one set, laminated them and cut them out. I then added a self-adhesive magnet. After pricing up, I worked out that I can make 12 for the price of 1 from a company. I compared mine with one Mother purchased, and they look sealed in the same way. I uploaded the picture to
share boast about my creations, and another author asked where I purchased them from!
I am busily trying to remember how I created the image so I can make my own business cards, and other little give-away treats for the Festival of Romance Fiction, conference in September. I have also agreed to give a talk at a library with another author, Suzan Collins. This will be my first coming out as an author. I hope the magnets will be a pleasant treat for those who turn up to listen.
