Last fall I had the honor of creating a logo for a very talented photographer. She just launched her new website, so I have to share. She knows how to use a camera in a way that I fear might be forgotten soon–she still loves film. You can see it in the ethereal color and softness that grace her work–that’s not filters, it’s natural light. And another skill you can’t fake when you only have so much film in your camera–a keen eye for composition and capturing the moment. Check out her site (with the new logo!) where she focuses on wedding and portrait photography. This is just one of my faves:
And here a some of the shots she did for our family:
I’ve been working on a line of illustrated invites/announcements and wanted to give a sneak peek of a couple of my cards. Would love to hear what you think!
Been eagerly awaiting the unveil of my first freebie which was part of the The Post Social’s Valentine series and today I get to share it with you! TPS cherry picks posts from other bloggers as well as creating original, top-of-the-trend content. They are a collaborative of smart and fashionable ladies, with thriving blogs of their own, so I was truly honored when they asked me to make some printables to be featured on their site.
Today they are featuring the DIY envelope and tomorrow they post the cards. Click here to download the template from their site.
See some card making tips below.
• Print the card on card stock. You can print the envelope directly on the paper you want to use or print it on card stock to create a template for cutting out of wrapping paper, newsprint, a magazine page, ect.
• Score folds before trimming (here I’m using the back of an utility knife — don’t press too hard).
• After folding the envelope, apply glue where the bottom folds overlap. You can seal the top flap with a label. And a kiss ; ).
For me, the best part of Valentine’s isn’t candy or flowers (though I do love me some candy), it’s the little Valentine. What is sweeter than a small note or card where you try to share what’s in your heart?
I suppose it harks back to school days that it seems a Valentine should involve cutting, pasting and, of course, hearts. It’s the only time of year I like hearts. But this year I’m in love with arrows, like this DIY from Design Sponge and this sweet print from Yellow Button Studio:
in the making:
Stay tuned the next two days for some Valentine printables!
