Look at all the Pretty Paper on Minted!!

Okay people…. today I’m ridiculously excited because the people over at Minted asked me to review a few of their newest products! You guys know that one of my favorite things in all the land is pretty paper so imagine how excited I was when I first learned about this opportunity!!

Some of you might know that my little sister is getting married this summer so It’s actually a funny coincidence that Minted reached out to me because I’ve spend a lot of time on their website over the last few months while I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect Save the Dates, Bridal Shower and Wedding invitations!!

There are few things I love more in this world than great typography, beautiful design and gold foil!!! Minted has done a fantastic job of creating a vast and comprehensive selection of invitations to cover all of your invitation needs! I spend wayyyyy too much time browsing though all of their different items and I was very surprised to find a few new categories of things I had no idea they carried! But more on that later! Check out a few of my favorite Save the Dates! They’re honestly all so beautiful it was hard to pick! Minted Minted Minted

don’t you just love all of that gold foil?? I know I do!!

 Minted Minted

One thing that’s newer to their site that I had never even noticed is that they have custom prints and artwork!! I’m seriously fawning over this gold foil print!! It’s just so beautiful and I want it in my house, stat!!

Minted Minted Minted Minted

There is something just so pretty about the print above, I just love it. I didn’t really know what it was at first but then I realized that it’s an astrological sign! How fun! I would love to have a few of them over a reading chair or to even add one to a gallery wall!

Minted

Oh and there’s another great section to the site where you can buy these adorable gold foil maps of different states!! I’m drooling! I want to order one for each of the states we lived in and hang them up in my living room!!

Minted Minted

Okay… if any of you follow my instagram you might have noticed that I’ve been trying my hand at watercoloring.. I’m just learning and I’ve got a loooong ways to go! But the girl who did the two prints above, Yao Cheng, is my watercolor idol!! I’m hands down in love with every single one of her flora pieces… I’m completely obsessed with her so you can imagine my pure delight when I saw her work on the Minted website!! Aren’t these pieces just so beautiful and dreamy? They would be perfect in my little girls bedroom!
Minted Minted Minted Minted

How cute would any of these pieces be in a little ones bedroom?? I’m seriously in love with it all! Be sure to head on over and check out all of their new art pieces here!

There are so many great pieces on this website and if you’re an artist there’s even an option to submit your work to their new website! How cool is that!! There were a number of other things that I didn’t have time to talk about, like their new selection of custom fabrics??!! SOOOOO amazing! They also have so many new and cool party decor items, journals, planners, home decor, christmas decor and a slew of other things!! You should run over there right now and check it out…. Make sure you got an hour or two of free time because I know you’re going to get lost in the beauty and delight of their selection! I promise you won’t be sorry!

Felicity Jane – Best Day Kit

Hello Hello!!!

I wanted to share with you all some of the most recent layouts i’ve made with the Felicity Jane March Kit! This kit features the bold black and white we’ve come to love from Felicity Jane along with some pretty pinks, corals, greens and teal!!

It lends itself well to whimsical layouts like the one below with the pretty flowers, and soft tones of grey and
Alexes Marie Brown - Felicity Jane Kit Club Alexes Marie Brown - Felicity Jane Kit Club Alexes Marie Brown - Felicity Jane Kit Club Alexes Marie Brown - Felicity Jane Kit Club Alexes Marie Brown - Felicity Jane Kit ClubFor this next layout I used this really beautiful woodgrain patterned paper, which I’m totally obsessed with. The best thing about these kits is that I’m always left wanting ten more of each paper! The designs are so classic, and timeless yet right on trend too!  I’m pretty sure my favorite piece from this whole kit was that little vellum piece that says “a whole lot of happy” I was sure to use it on my first layout!
Alexes Marie Brown - Felicity Jane Kit Club Alexes Marie Brown - Felicity Jane Kit Club Alexes Marie Brown - Felicity Jane Kit Club Alexes Marie Brown - Felicity Jane Kit Club Sometimes I have a tendency to only use white as a background, a habit I’m trying to stop, so I wanted to use a paper that wasn’t just pain white and this black and white bold striped paper is exactly what I needed to stretch my creative muscles! It’s totally different from what I normally do but that doesn’t stop me from loving it all the same!!

be SURE to stop by Felicity Jane and take a look around, you won’t be sorry I promise!! I’m my opinion it’s one of the best kits out there right  now!! and I’m totally being honest here…. I’m head over heels with them!
