Gift Tags

Last minute gift tags? Sure! I felt inspired by a pixel design on a bag I was given and decided to translate it to various gift tags for your presents. Take a look, and download below!

Monday

Last week, while sitting at my desk, I created a fun typography + icon for how I was feeling about it being Monday. I kept that Illustrator file open all week, and every day, added how I was feeling about the corresponding day. The result is below.

4th of July Designs

I had a great 4th of July weekend, going to the beach, and celebrating with friends. We decided last minute to throw a little get together after I found some adorable plates and napkins at Target. I designed some little print outs + made some confetti to make our place look festive.

I decided to use more muted red + blue for the printouts so that it would all look cohesive with the bought plates and straws.

I love these paper straws, and decided to add cute little sayings on each of them.

Last, but not least, I designed a patriotic-themed menu for our guests including drinks and appetizers we had:

I kept the same aesthetic throughout all the decorations, and all the guests loved it!
Happy Monday!

Happy Fourth of July

Mumford & Sons Prints

 

Part of my present to the special birthday boy were three prints that I designed, each with a different Mumford & Sons song lyric. I tried to emulate their style, preppy, yet outdoorsy (“Mumford-y” as I call it, take a look at their website here) to create a cohesive group. I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. The frames are each 11.75″x15.75″, found at IKEA, with the actual print being 8.5″x11″.

Mumford & Sons Ghosts That We Knew

 

Mumford & Sons Roll Away Your Stone

Mumford & Sons Dustbowl Dance
I thought the craft paper complimented the gold chevron paper (both from Urbanic, my favorite stationery store) and made the posters really stand out.

The three prints also were done in a color scheme that matches his room.

To wrap it all up, I wanted to carry through the look and feel of the posters, so I used the same craft + chevron paper as in the backers. I found this adorable bow tutorial from How About Orange blog, found here. Mumford & Sons Bow

The birthday boy was quite pleased, and we will be putting them up on his wall shortly. Happy Wednesday!
