NEW IN THE SHOP: WEDDING FAVOR TAG STAMPS

When I was planning my wedding a couple years ago, I was obsessed with maintaining the theme or brand throughout the day. I wanted everything to seamlessly transition and look effortless.  I remember it being such a struggle for me to find items that worked cohesively.

As my last two shop posts have shown, I've been focusing on stamp designs recently. During one of my recent brainstorming sessions (I wonder, can it be called brainstorming if you do it alone?) it occurred to me that my new favorite shop item didn't have to stop at making return addresses look pretty.  I could design something that would help brides like me create a cohesive look.

I'd like to introduce you to my newest addition to the shop: the favor tag stamp.  No need to stop at favors though, oh no.  The options are truly limitless. Programs, napkins, place settings, thank you cards, oh my!



This one is influenced by my top selling Thank You note (below) and I just love it.  What do you all think?

NEW IN THE SHOP: CUSTOM NAUTICAL ADDRESS STAMP

NAUTICAL ADDRESS STAMP FOUND IN THE SHOP

I'm very excited to introduce you to my newest address stamp design.  Just like the last stamp I featured, this was influenced by a favorite spot in Georgia.  This one is called St. Simons as I was channeling the beautiful island of St. Simons, Georgia when creating it. I intended to mirror the classic elegance found throughout the island and with its clean & classic look, I think I hit the mark.

This stamp would be a perfect addition to your nautical themed wedding suite as well as any everyday correspondence you may send from your boat, tropical island, or anywhere else that needs a little nautical infusion.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN

I'm in San Diego this week for a conference.  Unfortunately, it is a financial services conference and not Comicon.  I've seen a few of the Comicon attendees around and they sure look like they are having WAY more fun than the crowd I'm with! 

Even with the tamer attendee list, my view can't be beat.

IMAGES FROM MY TRIP: GLASGOW, SCOTLAND




I realized I hadn't shared any of my trip photos yet so I thought it would fun to do so.  I'll start off by giving you a quick peak at of the architecture you'll find out and about in Glasgow, Scotland. It is said that to truly see Glasgow, you have to look up.  Here is what I saw when I did. In my next post, I'll talk about many of these places, but for now - enjoy the photos!





































p.s. Don't be fooled by the incredibly blue skies. These photos are not representative of normal Scottish weather.  We had FABULOUS weather which was not normal.

MUSIC MONDAY vol 54

Hope everyone in the states had a wonderful 4th of July holiday!  Even though we had good weather over the weekend, today it is rainy and blah here in Chicago so I needed a little pop infusion to cheer me up. Today's band is the fun pop trio Chvrches with the song Gun.  Enjoy the eighties like video effects and the rad choreography.
