It’s a Wrap!

November 2008, by Joy | Add a comment

Happy Black Friday everyone!

In light of the biggest shopping day of the year (for us Americans – yes, there are a few of us in MOO studios), after you’ve done all your shopping, we know there’s a mountain of wrapping you’ll have to do! It’s really my favorite part of the holidays. I have oodles of paper, and ribbon and ornaments that I’ve collected over the last 10 years! Not sure about the rest of you, but I really do appreciate a nicely wrapped gift. It makes it more special somehow.

To help get your presents to that next level, we spotted these super cute tags made out of MiniCards on Etsy from …Continue reading this article…

Scrapbooking: the old school – AND the new school – way

November 2008, by Denise | Add a comment

If you’re looking for a quick n’ crafty Christmas gift to make – either alone while you enjoy some peace and quiet, or with the kids for added noisey fun – you could think about something like this great little calendar, made by jbloomphotos.

She’s mixed more traditional scrapbooking materials with family photos, printed on MiniCards. It adds an extra personal touch, and makes for an ideal present to send in the post to family far away. If you’re really clever, you could make the MiniCards removable, so as the month ends, they could be used for bookmarks too. The beautiful ones below were made by Emmalynne

MiniCards are acid and lignin free, incidentally, …Continue reading this article…

Mosaic Frame Challenge – Winner Revealed

November 2008, by Lisa | Add a comment

First off, thank you to all the MOOsters who participated in last week’s challenge. As always everyone who took part kept us entertained with their creative, logical and in other cases wacky answers to our question. Just to recap the challenge, I was looking for an answer to how many combinations one could arrange 20 MiniCards in the Mosaic Frame. While there is probably a correct mathematical answer out there, all the answers were inventive and thoughtful and worthy of recognition. There is one honourable mention.

The honourable mention goes to Rob. He said that the answer is only one. He believes there is only one combination that will look perfect. I like the idea of …Continue reading this article…

The ‘i-men’ cometh

November 2008, by Denise | Add a comment

One of the best things about working for MOO is that we’re lucky enough to have incredibly creative customers. If we’re ever stuck for inspiration all we need to do is look at the beautiful cards whizzing by in the warehouse, or the amazing store of photographs in the MOO Flickr pool.

We’ve seen designers and photographers, crafters, makers and bakers all printing with MOO – but until now, we’d never seen a StickerBook of images quite like this:

or this:

or even this:

These are the ‘i-men’, created by the London-based designer, Gareth White. There’s a whole army of them, ranging from the slightly cute, to the oddly creepy.

After far too long spent …Continue reading this article…

What a day! How are you feeling?

November 2008, by Denise | 7 Comments – latest by Simon G

Some of the MOO Crew are a bit tired today, after staying up till the wee small hours watching the USA election results as they rolled in. Election fever has touched everyone around the globe, feelings are running high – and people are documenting how they feel everywhere. Brendan Dawes, designer, developer, author and all-round lovely chap, has found a way capture this mood.

Using the combined power of the We feel fine and MOO Api he’s created 100 Feelings felt. It pulls out the most recent 100 feelings from We feel fine, and creates 100 different MiniCards. It’s a perfect snapshot of time – each MiniCard is printed with a description or emotion on …Continue reading this article…
