Newly Featured and a New Art Print

Hello! I've been away for a bit! I've been busy on vacation, busy designing and then busy taking a break from design! I'm finding I'm slowing down a little bit this month. After several months of a variety of projects and deadlines, it's getting harder to get motivated, especially with these pretty July days! Today, however, I wanted to share a feature I recently came across on the blog "Cool Mom Picks." And I wanted to preview a new addition to the Keen Peachy Etsy shop.

My kid's birthday party invitation design, Starry Sleepover, is featured as one of the summer picks on the Cool Mom Picks site, which you can read more about here.

I have also recently added a new art print to the Etsy shop. It's called "Solstice" and is an 8x8" print. This design is all about color! I created this after the long, polar vortex-driven winter. I had spring and summer on my mind! Solstice is a bold and bright abstract print that is the perfect way to bring in some color to your home or office. 


Holiday Party Invitation Designs

Hello! I've been busy working on more designs lately, and here are two of my latest! The latest holiday invite challenge is now open for voting. The first design is called "A Slice of Thanks." This is a Thanksgiving-inspired invite that has a diecut circle shape. My hubby helped with the copy, which really pulls the concept together! My second design is called "Bright Lights" and is a general holiday party invitation featuring glowing Christmas lights. Enjoy!



More Holiday Voting!

Hello! I've been busy with more holiday designs. This gets tougher and tougher the hotter it gets! Here is the latest batch that could use your votes! The first are holiday nonphoto cards. 1. Yule Haul. This idea came to me when I was trying to sleep one night. I hurried to write it down in the dark before I forgot! A fun take on a moving announcment. 2. Holly Jolly Stripes. This design may look familiar from a photo card entry. The one seen here is a variation of that bold and colorful design. 3. Brushed Noel. A fresh, painterly design with a unique palette and classic message. 4. Christ in Christmas. I thought there was a way to show this message simply and visually using typography and a bold color palette. Voting for holiday nonphoto cards ends June 30.

Corporate holiday cards are also open for voting right now. I currently have several designs for that audience as well. 1. Highlight of Our Year. A casual, yet professional Top 10 of the year highlighting the accomplishments of your business. Of course the Number 1 highlight is working with great clients! 2. Bold Baronial. As the name says, this design is bold and colorful. Minimal yet personal for a nontraditional corporate holiday card. 3. The Skinny. This design shows off your favorite business photo gracing it with modern, skinny typography. 4. Sweet Day. A homemade design perfect for the bakery or confection shoppe. Wish your clients a sweet holiday with nothing sweeter than sugar cookies! Voting for corporate holiday designs ends June 24.

Starry Sleepover Kid's Birthday Party Invitations

It's that time of year when outdoor parties and campouts commence. My husband and I's new favorite thing is to sit out on our patio at night playing our Scrabble app. Old, right? We talk (well, I talk) of camping out in the backyard, but we both know that's not going to actually happen! With those summer nights and fun parties in mind, though, I designed a new kid's birthday party invitation that is now available on Minted. "Starry Sleepover" is dreamy and celestial and the perfect invitation for a fun sleepover birthday party. This invitation is flexible and can go with many party themes, or the stars themselves can be the show. This is an exciting pick because it was a totally new design style for me. I'm really proud of the result, and I hope you will enjoy it too! The invitation comes in Bubblegum, Lavender or Aqua and can be customized. Matching thank you cards are also available. For more starry-themed party inspiration, check out my Starry Sleepover Party Pinterest board here.

Behind the Scenes: Holiday Photo Card Challenge

Thought I would share a look into the holiday photo card challenge process. Doodles, paintings and sketches, oh my! Most of this was just experimentation, but there were a few things I used directly like for my Berry Wreath card, and some elements may work for future designs. For a look at some of the finished holiday designs, check them out here!
