We've got a new build on The Paper Custodian Build Blog!
This was a pretty easy craft to put together, but the final look is pleasing to the eye.
The instructions are a bit hard to follow, but if you've spent a lot of time with the craft, then it should be second nature.
Or, you could always follow along HERE>

Same file, Different color?

A New Challenge has Appeared! 
I've been working on another paper toy design and just when I thought I was ready to go live with it...
This happens...


I thought the calibration between my printer, screen and Illustrator were good. Not perfect, but, good.  Until today, when I went to print and this happened. 
All three colors were off. 
This is a little frustrating when you're trying to get something right before you send it out to the public, and you have an idea in your head of what it is you want. 
The worst part now, after discovering this, is trying to figure out how this is affecting all my work. 
I had to mess with the settings in Illustrator and with my printer to get these three different color schemes. The thing is, I want the paper crafting experience to be as simple as possible. I shouldn't, nor do I want to explain to the crafter how to adjust their color or print settings because of a mistake on my end. 
Grrr!
Live an keep learning!
