I am so happy (and so relieved) to announce that my new stamps are officially up in my brand new shop! It took way longer than I anticipated to pull everything together, but now that it is finally done, I am so thrilled with the results!
I can’t even tell you how much I agonized over how I wanted things to look. I shot and re-shot everything three separate times. That’s approximately 5 million photos and two days straight of editing right there. The first two times, it just didn’t feel right…you know that feeling? I wanted to be proud of it. I wanted to be excited about it. I wanted it to be an accurate representation of how I envision my brand. Well, third time’s the charm! Halle-freakin-lujah.
There’s still a few more stamps that need to be shot + listed. I will definitely keep you posted when those go up! And thank you so much for your patience! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts (:
But in the meantime…I’m going to bed!
And the rebranding continues!
Here’s how I recently changed up my business cards:
I can’t say enough about how much I love using stamps for branding (obvious statement? ha!). For minimal investment, I can change up my business cards as often as I wish.
This latest batch was made with gold and aqua pigment inks from American Crafts (they’re super juicy and saturated). I hate to admit it, but I’m a little bit obsessed (;
One of these days, I want to try embossing my business cards! Maybe next month…
Change is good.
Change is necessary.
Change is also super easy to make happen when there are stamps involved.
Every couple of months or so, I like to “rebrand” my packaging a little bit. Order a few new custom stamps. Make some new business cards. Incorporate a little hot pink posterboard and neon yellow washi tape. You know, all the usual suspects. Here’s how I recently revamped the thank you notes that I place in every order:
A little happy mail goes a long way.
P.S. I added a few new stamps to my shop, including the “Hello There!” that you see above! (:
Today I thought I would switch it up a bit and instead of showing you photos of my messy desk, I’ll show you how I package my Etsy orders:
I’m so excited to be offering a $16 for $30 Good Cheer Deal over at Oh, Hello Friend!
A quick note: the deal is $16 for $30 worth of credit in my shop, even though it’s listed as $15. My apologies for any confusion! I’m trying to get this amended ASAP. Many thanks to everyone who has already made a purchase!
First of all, thank you all SO MUCH for your kind words in regards to my last post. Each and every one of them made my day, I can’t thank you enough (: (: (:
But now on to something far more frivolous (but far more exciting): NEW STAMPS! You all know that my stamp obsession is out of control. It’s reached the point of no return, hence the overflowing box on my desk. Here are a few new ones that I recently added to le shoppe:
And So It Goes
You + Me
And here’s another fun thing I recently added:
Hot Pink Cording! The neon craze is alive and well over here, in case you were wondering.
Have a wonderful weekend!
As it turns out, I’ve taken a serious liking to designing address stamps. In the year and a half that I’ve lived in Utah, I’ve already made three different address stamps for myself. THREE. Does a person really need three different address stamps for the same address, you ask? What can I say, I love a good zip code (;
So when some of my closest friends asked me to design some stamps for them, I decided to make a go of it on Etsy. Here are just of few that I recently listed:
Even more can be found here!
Happy Saturday! Best day of the week! Woo!
Since I’ve been enjoying little shopping sprees on Etsy lately, I thought I would share some of my recents faves with you all. Here are just a few of the many inspiring shops that I’ve come across:
Snipit Sheets/Awesome Christmas by Little Pretty Studio (aka Jennifer Pebbles, who I have been a longtime fan of!). I can’t wait to put these to use in my December Daily album.
Mini Charcoal Holiday Book by Jamaica Makes. I can honestly say that her packaging is just as good as her product. Amazing.
2012 Life.Love.Paper Calendar by Life Love Paper. I’m hoping one of these will show up under my tree on Christmas morning! (;
Decorative Cutout Blank Journal by Cherie Bee. Cherie is one of my scrappy friends from San Diego and her shop is full of these AWESOME wood books. I was lucky enough to receive a custom book from her and I can’t wait to to use it on a special project!
Red Hearts on White Washi Tape by In The Clear. This shop is FULL of things that make my eyes so happy (and I have a feeling that if you’re reading this blog, they will make yours happy too). This tape is currently rocking my world.
Which shops are catching your eye these days?
I just wanted to pop in and remind all the Utahns out there that Bijou Market starts today at 10 am in Provo! I just finished setting up my booth and I’m so excited to go back and do a little shopping after work tonight (:
Have a great day!
New prints in the shop! This time they are of the digital variety.
/// The ultimate song about my home state! Comes in teal, pink, and orange.
/// Words I try to live by (:
/// It’s never too soon to jump on the holiday bandwagon, right? (;
And of course, all of this shop talk is because I have the total privilege of being a vendor at the Provo Bijou Market next month! Eeeee! So ridiculously excited to be a part of a such an inspiring event. Seriously, I was so jazzed about it last year, that I made a video (haha!)!
Thanks for letting me share!
