Celebrating 7th!

Results are in, and after votes were tallied my classroom Valentine design "Puppy Love" came in 7th place! This is among 1,197 entries! I'm happy to announce that a second classroom card design, "Light up the Room" (a design for all of the kiddos who don't want lovey dovey Valentines) has been selected as an Editor's Pick in the challenge, as well. Both classroom Valentine designs should be available in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

Invaluable Insight

Hello! I'm a big fan of many designers and artists of all kinds, and one of my favorite web design businesses is called Aeolidia based out of Seattle. I don't know how I initially came across their work, but they are one of those businesses full of talent that if I ever make it big (right!) I want them to design my website. They also do branding, logo design, copywriting, etc. I follow their blog and get a newsletter and always find so much helpful info as a new business owner. That said, Aeolidia recently had some giveaways, and I was lucky to be able to get a quick consult for Keen Peachy with the founder Arianne Foulks. The consult was helpful in reconfirming things I already had an inkling about as well as encouraging me in some areas I had been second guessing (i.e., Keen Peachy as a business name!) Arianne featured the consult on the blog yesterday, and I thought I'd share! You can read about it here.

Teal and Peach Inspiration

Today I wanted to take a quick moment to share a little teal and peach Christmas inspiration. I love the colors and vintage flair of the "Holiday Florals" card by Alethea and Ruth. Plus it reminds me of one of my grandma's many Christmas decor color schemes. I'm excited to see this color combo make it's way back this season!

Holiday Collection Part 4...Modern Christmas

Happy November! Can't even believe it... With November...and December in mind, I want to share some new designs that are available at Paper Culture this season. I've been fortunate to work with this stationery company which has a more simple and modern aesthetic. Check out both of my new holiday photo cards here!

Holiday Collection Part 3...Giving Thanks

As October begins to wrap up, I know it's hard to hear, but Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Today I want to announce a new Thanksgiving invitation design that's now available on Minted. "A Slice of Thanks" is a sweet and fun way to invite your favorite people to Thanksgiving dinner. Though not a pumpkin pie fan myself, this design came to mind after seeing Minted's circle scallop die cut shape. I couldn't help but see pie and was surprised there weren't versions of this already out! I had a lot of fun designing this, and I can thank my husband for help with the copy! I'm also excited to share that it was selected for a special award in the challenge, winning the "Great Shape Award for the best use of one of Minted’s die-cut shapes." A Slice of Thanks comes in three colors, which can be seen below. How fun would this be to send out?
