'Creo by Lady Katutz' Postage Stamp Sheet Designs as Postcrosser

This is my last postage stamp sheet to share or show for now.
The product of my months of designing and conceptualizing, now in a postage stamp sheet digital design ready for printing.

I've been a postcrosser for more than a year now.  And I had been an administrator for certain groups and also hosts for certain activities under both the Official and Unofficial Postcrossing.com and Postcrossing Groups.

I'd like to celebrate my turning more than one year, as I'm wanting to take a back seat from being an administrator and take a stance that is 'little slowly but surely' and probably look more into specializing into specialized groups of Postcrossing.

For now, here are my designed banner logos for postage stamp sheet printing:

Creo by Lady Katutz' Philippine Crafters Association Postage Stamp Sheets (Customized)

Hi!

This time I'm sharing photos or designs of postage stamp sheets for the Philippine Crafters Association at the time I'm still active as co-administrator of the group.  

Here are they:


I have to find my Profile Photo as a member if warranted to include to my postage stamp sheet designs for printing.  But then I'll need to re-design my main Creo by Lady Katutz Souvenir Sheet to include the same.

Creo by Lady Katutz Designs' Kaboodle Doodles Postage Stamp Sheets (Customized)

Hi and hello!

I'm back to share another set of postage stamp sheet designs.  This time for my international community and challenge blog (paper and digital LOs, cards and OTPs challenge blog).  I have been barely 2 years, the owner and administrator of Kaboodle Doodles and this one to release a postage stamp for Kaboodle Doodles is one of my projects and dreams.

I hope this can be a joint issue between Manila (Philpost), UK (Royal Mail) and the USA (USPS), as Kaboodle Doodles has started in the UK and with me had been with Filipino (me), American (Cheryl), and British (Fran)'s hands.  I'm the main admin and owner for 2 years with the help of the 2 as co-administrators.

Now, sharing the designs of the Kaboodle Doodles postage stamp sheets:



For now, I can only design for release my own Kaboodle Doodles Admin and DT Profile photos done in different designs for every international season in a year (an everyday profile photo design, formal, for birthdays and anniversaries, and for the Holiday Season at the end of the year - Christmas and New Years).

I still believe but I hope it won't be necessary to edit the DT profile photo postage stamp designs to mentiona Kaboodle Doodles below the name.  I think it might be necessary for a separate release for a Commemmorative or tribute for Kaboodle Doodles.

I still need to include the original banner logo of Kaboodle Doodles amongst the banner logo stamp sheet design of Kaboodle Doodles.  {sigh}  I need to edit further.  Please bear with me.

Creo by Lady Katutz Designs' Filipino Scrapbookers Postage Stamp Sheets (Customized)

This time, a pleasant good morning!

I'm now back with the Stamp Sheets Design Series for Filipino Scrapbookers.  It is the group I've been an administrator of and took helm with a few others.  We are all volunteers in this group effort and I had to see to much of my ability to host and manage activities all year round last year at the Filipino Scrapbookers Club and managing, designing and coordination for the Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge Blog.

For now, I only have the liberty to show my Admin profile for potential customized postage stamp.  The rest are the various banner logos for the 2 years the challenge blog has been up and for the 3 years the facebook group has been in existence.

Now, sharing the photos of the stamp sheet designs:




The sketches above (the last stamp sheet design shown above) are also my own sketch designs as part of the Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge Blog's sketch team which is deemed for printing for Maxicard purposes.  This is also with postcards printed of postcard designs designed as Design Team Inspirational projects for the Filipino Scrapbookers Challenge Blog.

I'm still contemplating whether my Design Team Profile photo should include a Filipino Scrapbookers note label below the name.

Please note:   the variation in my DT profile photos were designed for each season in the year, milestone and challenge blog anniversary.  All Design Teams, I've prepared the same variation in DT Profile design for such varied occassions in a year.

'Creo by Lady Katutz' Postage Stamp Sheets (Customized)

I'm back again, now with Designs of Stamp Sheets to share with you.  As promised, these are the ones I've been designing for a few months now.  

These are created or designed to cap-off my 2014 milestone celebration for Creo by Lady Katutz with a logo and banner stamp sheets for customized postage stamps.  I have yet to present these with Philpost E-post and their postage stamps printer for approval in design, costing and printing.

For now, here are my designs:

'Creo by Lady Katutz' Collection's Souvenir Sheet

Hi, everyone!

This has been in secret for so long. I hope I'd be able to see this realized, which is for me to come up with a
'Creo by Lady Katutz' Collection.

I have been designing for months now, postage stamps and it's with a dream that I see these printed
before next year's come.

It's a first for me and for me it's aptly done since this is my milestone year.

I should have done this last year, year 2013 in time for this year's release for 2014 is my milestone year.

Thus, churn I went and with a heavy sigh . . . 
I could only estimate the cost of printing by now,
as this year is purely a printing year for me -
of books, postcards and now customized postage stamps.

I've taken a backseat in papercrafting and
with my challenge hosting and managing teams.

It's suppose to be a vacation for me.
But then again, I'm glad that I'm not idle and procrastinating.

I hope this leads me somewhere and to the realization of my project
- a Creo by Lady Katutz Collection.


For now, I'm sharing the photo with watermark of Creo by Lady Katutz Souvenir Sheet in 11 x 11 format:


Stamp sheets designed to follow in succeeding posts.
