new custom note cards!

over the past six years i’ve spent 5 summers working at forest home (a christian summer camp) with the teenage girls of the CCA Program.  while there i’ve met hundreds of amazing girls who i adore… so i was BEYOND excited when i received an email from the mother of a CCA who had a GENIUS idea for a christmas gift – custom note cards for her daughter!  being at camp without a phone or computer to keep you company, most girls end up writing lots of letters during their weeks as CCA’s… so this was a great gift for katy who usually spends several weeks at camp each summer (and i GUESS she could use them while she’s down the mountain as well 🙂 )

i continued the background design on the inside of the card as well (hearts, music notes and clefs, and guitars)

bianca’s business card design

bianca is a magician who makes my hair into something other then a frizzy mess.  CHANGED MY LIFE seriously.  if you have a giant frizz ball atop your face like i once did she can preform a miracle and give you gorgeous smooth hair like you wouldn’t believe.

but she can do other things too – thus the new business cards:

i have this fun little display case that is now overflowing with designs from the last 2 years…. i might have to do a post just about it’s lovely presence in my room – have a great weekend everyone! i’ll be working on tons of wedding stuff that i wont be able to post for a few more months (bummer!) but maybe i’ll sneak a picture or two of the envelope addressing process soon

more love for linen canvases

i love when someone contacts me with an idea that they are excited about.  i like partnering with people to make the things that they’ve dreamt up… like these lovelies:

this first one was a genius idea – she wanted a display board for all the christmas cards her family receives each year.  the cards will start in the canvas pocket on the left (which is lined with black and white chevron fabric) and then throughout the year, one-by-one they’ll appear in the middle and end up in the pocket on the right.  since people’s christmas cards tend to come in all sorts of shapes and sizes these days i left plenty of room in the middle for vertical or horizontal cards of almost any size (the one in the photo is a 4×6 – which is usually on the smaller end of flat cards – and you may recognize it from this post).  the final project is 24×12″.  i dont tend to work much with fabric, but i had a blast making these little envelopes… plus i got to take a visit to the very dangerous (to my wallet) fabric store …mmm i’m drooling just thinking about it!

i wasn’t planning on posting this next one til after valentines day because it is a gift… but i hear they celebrated a little early so i wont ruin the surprise by posting haha! this idea actually comes from a cousin of mine who wanted to make a creative headboard for her husband for the holiday.  she gave me a long list of her favorite love quotes and this was the lovely two-piece chunk of awesome.  each canvas is 24×36″ – which also made me drool a little seeing as how i usually work on much smaller spaces
