Leopard Print Cupcake Wrappers

Happy Friday, folks! I’ve added three new sets of printable leopard print cupcake wrappers to the shop. Each set comes with four different wrappers with leopard spot patterns and stripes. I’m hoping I can go from this to full leopard party printable sets, but that’ll have to wait a little while since I’m trying to get a jump on Halloween stuff right now (yeah, I’m running behind as always).

So far I’ve got these wrappers in hot pink, blue and brown. I’d like to add more colors in the future, but I’m not really sure what colors to go with next. If anybody has any suggestions for some popular colors (or color combos) that are more likely to sell, I’d love to hear them. Sound off in the comments below!

Checkerboard Scrapbook Paper

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today I’m featuring some printable checkerboard scrapbook paper from my shop. Above is a 12x12in. digital scrapbook paper sheet and matching set of tags. I wanted to do something a little different from the usual checkerboard scrapbook paper you see out there, so I went for a rich, vintage look. For the digital scrapbook paper sheet I started with a red checkerboard pattern and overlaid a stained paper texture and a swirl texture. Then I created another checkerboard pattern in black and grey and made a border, decorating the corners with scroll vectors and aging it with more textures and brushes to make it look worn. I used the same techniques and design elements to make the matching scrapbook tags.

Both the paper sheet and the tags are high quality 300dpi JPEGs. The sheet measures 12×12 inches and the tags measure approximately 2 3/8in wide by 3 3/4in tall, with 8 tags on an 8.5×11 inch sheet.

More Checkerboard Scrapbook Paper Choices

I’ve got a lot more checkerboard scrapbook paper in a rainbow of colors in my shop. Check them out below!
