Shake, Rattle and Roll Baby Shower Invitation Minted Challenge


, , , , , , , , , , , ,

Another challenge has wrapped up and thanks to this weekend, I was able to get 6 designs submitted. I gravitated toward a more elegant look for most, but created a few different styles as well. I really enjoyed working on these and love how they all came out. You can view all my submissions below. Voting starts tomorrow!

Interior Palettes: Bold and Bright


, , , , , ,

This space is a great example of how to use color successfully. It’s bright, fresh, and full of style. The boldest hues are found on the furniture pieces and grouped in the center. Although strong, they are softened by the fabrics and wood tones. With the walls white and bright, a canvas is formed, allowing all the unique artwork to pop with eclectic flair. It also helps to bring focus to the middle seating area. The textured rug brings the whole space together, as it includes lots of the colors you see in the room. This harmonious graphic also warms up the space and grounds the furniture as well. And even though the gallery wall is quite busy, because of the white matts and appropriate negative space, it’s not overwhelming. How fun!

Minted Every Mother Counts Birth Announcement Challenge


, , ,

I haven’t entered many Minted challenges since I had our son, but I am trying to get back into the groove now that I have created some sort of balance with work and motherhood. I always love the birth announcement challenges so I knew I wanted to submit designs to this one. Unfortunately, I was so busy with projects that I was only able to get two in before the deadline. But I think they are both strong contenders, whether they win or not. Here are my submissions below. Voting is now open till February 16th so please take some time to look at all the awesome designs and share your vote. Thanks!
