NEW blog design + Smitten Blog Design

  Hey there everyone! I am soo happy that I found Smitten Blog Design. A couple weeks ago I got serious about my plan to re-design my blog, making it cleaner and more unified. After a basic google search, I found their ADORABLE site and FABULOUS portfolio. After looking around, noticing their entire team of talented designers, and also noticing the NO WAIT LIST bonus, I sent an email of what I was hoping for.
  SUCH A QUICK response. I sent in a reasonable deposit that was applied to the final amount, and within 1 , I was contacted by the lovely Jacquelinne, who designed the first mock up in only 2 days!!! She kept in touch with me frequently, responding promptly and was so sweet in answering all my questions (no matter how silly they were.
  I cannot recommend Smitten Blog Design ENOUGH! They are amazing, professional and offer not only two packages for a custom re-design, but adorable free and affordably priced templates!!! Check them out at Smitten Blog Design.
    To celebrate, here's a fresh, new card that I made recently(I haven't posted anything new in a couple weeks).

Birthday + Crate Paper's Random

  Hey friends, I just wanted to share an album for a friend's birthday that I made with the yummy new Random collection from Crate Paper. To say that I love these papers would be an understatement. Bold patterns and colors reminiscent of fabrics and textures we all have in our closet, or at our relatives house. What an amazing mix of yumminess.

I covered an album that I found at my local craft store with paper and goodies from the Random collection

Basic Grey + My Wedding Dress

  There's this one picture of me in my wedding dress that I simply just love. I am running away from the photographer and the way the dress moves makes the dress seam so light and airy. The Curio collection from Basic Grey was the perfect complement to this photo.

Basic Grey + Epiphany Crafts

  I have been inspired lately by text, font, print and all things type related. Lately, I have been seeing a lot of typewriters enter the scene when it comes to design. 

   I love the typewriters, but I also love font, so the two met perfectly in  Basic Grey's Out of Print line. Since this line is a  little softer on contrasts I wanted to place the paper against a white background to really make it pop off the page!

try playing with fonts by stitching titles. Just draw the title first, pierce holes equally distant from each other and then
stitch with a backwards stitch!

The title here was super easy. Trace around letter stickers,
outline in ink and then color some in!

That's it for me. Have fun experimenting with type!
