Christmas Card Shopping with Minted

October 23, 2014

Christmas Card

1. / 2. / 3. / 4. / 5. / 6. / 7.

I can’t believe that we will be celebrating Christmas in 2 months!

The funny thing is, even as I type out that sentence I can’t help but think “Two months… What’s the big deal? I have time! It isn’t even Halloween yet!” But as I have big plans each and every year to carve pumpkins, cut down my own Christmas tree and host a holiday cookie decorating party, every year life seems to zoom by and I have yet to accomplish any of that.

BUT, when Minted reached out to me with their gorgeous holiday card designs, I thought now is as good as any time to get everyone in the holiday spirit and let’s get rolling on our holiday to-do lists! First up? Christmas cards!

Whether your style is more classic or funky, festive or fancy, I love that with over 1,000 designs, you are sure to find something you love.  My favorite part? Most of the designs allow you to swap out colors, shapes, etc. to completely customize your holiday cards.

So do your stress level a factor and start perusing your options now… or better yet, put them in your cart! With free recipient address printing and 10% off your holiday card order (use code: JOY2014 by 10/27) – this is way easier than figuring out what to get your sister in law for Christmas!

Also how cute are their foil pressed and  ornament cards?!


Valentine’s Day Cards

February 13, 2014


Looking for a last minute card idea for your Valentine?   Look no further!


All you need is:

  1. Fold card stock in half.
  2. Use a white crayon to write a note, dray a symbol, whatever comes to you! – the tricky part here is you can’t see what you are writing… so I recommend the shorter the better 🙂
  3. Using watercolor paints, I did an ombre design on top of the crayon to reveal the sweet design!
  4. Let dry and gift to your favorite valentine(s)!

I also made some homemade friendship bracelets for my sisters with some colored cord, fun beads and an adjustable knot.
