Newsletter 15th August 2021: I made a thing ūü§© Ruthie’s Flash Sale and LAST DAY for Birthday goodies and discount

by | Newsletters


Housework is so much less interesting than being online.

And crafting

So instead of dusting and doing the laundry this morning, I made an envelope using the template from the Zen PLR kit (see below), some of my own digital paper (you could use any of the 60 sheets in my birthday freebie!), and a matching label I made in Canva.

It’s so much fun taking pieces of PLR and putting them together. Remember, you’re never stuck using things just as they are ūüėä

This¬†Zen PLR birthday card and envelope kit¬†with full instructions is perfect to make digital or physical cards to sell with matching envelopes that you can’t buy in any store.

With this kit, all the sizing is done and you can just have fun with design (as I did above) or use Teresa’s designs for a ready-made option.

And you can use it for all kinds of cards too.

Use code jansbirthday for 50% off, making the Birthday Cards printables kit just $13.50

All it needs is a sticker for the back – now I wonder where I’d find one of those LOL

If you want to SELL stickers

You can put your stickers¬†up in your Etsy shop as craft supplies (if you don’t make them original) or as handmade goods (if you do) but make sure in either case that you have a marketing plan as well as a plan to put them up in your store.

If you want stickers to be a¬†lucrative side hustle, you’ll need to promote them in some way or use them to promote other items you have listed. (For example, you can produce stickers in every color to match your other items, as people love matching sets,¬†and the matching items help promote each other.)

One of the best courses for actually SELLING your stickers (as opposed to looking at your stash and enjoying it!) is the digital sticker course by Wild & Solo.

wild and solo sticker course

This is a huge course on digital sticker making and selling, including how to make illustration stickers even if you can’t draw, how to stay organized with all your files, how to package stickers into¬†books to sell, and, get this,¬†see the different ways you can package up all your products into one big bundle and make more money (plus create happy customers). Michelle says: “I‚Äôll show you how I‚Äôve created my Everything bundle (including both the beautiful way and the easy way).”

This course¬†has everything you need for your new side business.¬†Incorporate Catherine’s templates and you’ll have an advantage over the people in the course who only have those from Wild & Solo.

The course is jumping in price soon, so get it while it’s huge value for all you get. Every module is so detailed you really can’t go wrong.

My birthday has been a blast this year and I’ve really enjoyed sharing it with you, but all god things come to an end and it’s the last day to use coupon code¬†BIRTHDAYGIFT¬†to make my new product free‚ÄĒ60 digital papers with commercial rights¬†that you can¬†use in any of your projects¬†even if you sell PLR.

60 digital papers

My second birthday treat ends today too. 

If you would like to pick up¬†any of my products, today is the day to do it¬†while coupon¬†BIRTHDAY60¬†is still valid¬†for 60% off¬†your whole cart.¬†See what’s in my shop here

[NOTE: Use the BIRTHDAYGIFT coupon first to get your free papers if you want them. Then go in again to shop, as you can’t use two coupons at once.]

You can use coupon BIRTHDAY60 up to five times until the end of TODAY  so you can shop more than once if you wish.

To be honest that¬†really means when I get up tomorrow and change it¬†if you happen to be late catching this, mainly because I’m never really sure what time zone my shopping cart lives in!

Have a great Sunday, Thai celebration banquet for me now in Scotland,¬† and I’ll catch you soon with more tips, freebies, and some offers (but only the ones I personally think are great value and know the quality to be good.)
