Heart Luggage Tags

My neighbor and friend had asked me to design a colorful heart luggage tag for her. She had a heart design on her suit case and wanted a tag to go with it.

I invited her over to pick out the colors that she wanted on it. So the color combination that she picked is of her choosing. I did however make some colors lighter or darker, so that they could be in various shades.

This is the luggage tag design that I made for her.


I added a patch of yellow using Paint Shop Pro, to give her a place to write her contact info on the back.


She loved the design and placed her order. Later when I talked to her, after she received them, she said that she was very impressed with the luggage tags; the design was great and the tags were made of a sturdy plastic. She was very happy with them.

The tags themselves are the size of a standard business card, at 2 by 3.5 inches. They are made of durable acrylic, and are UV resistant and waterproof.

Here is a different kind of heart design that is bright and colorful too. The background color of light yellow can be customized on this one.


Both designs have a template form to easily customize your text.

Custom Autumn Halloween Thanksgiving Paper Napkins

It's that time of the year when the leaves are transforming into their fall colors, making landscapes of red, yellow, orange, and brown across the autumn sky.

It's time to think of Halloween and festive dinners. It's a fun time of the year to add some creative flare.

If you are planning a Halloween party, these happy pumpkins will be glad to greet your guests. I enjoyed creating these pumpkin faces; I like seeing cute happy faces.


If your event is a Halloween wedding, these pumpkins in love will be glad to portray your love to your guests. This cute couple are snuggled together and entwined in the pumpkin vines, giving them an extra look of love.


Napkins are not only functional, they can also be kept as a wedding memento. These are easily personalized with the names of the bride and groom, and wedding date on the template forms.

If your gathering is closer to or on Thanksgiving, these cornstalk and pumpkins harvest napkins will be there to protect your guests' laps. These napkins picture a simple drawing with the words, Happy Harvest. A simple drawing can reflect more on the message that you would like to convey. It can also be easily customized with your own words.


It was freeing and fun to paint these autumn leaves. These autumn birch tree leaves works well for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and any other fall occasion. The yellow, green, and brown shades reflect some of the colors of the landscape.


May you enjoy your autumn get-togethers.
