A brand is born!

From logo design, to business cards, to packaging labels.
This growing project for Dewdrop Crafts has been my pet project - and the end result is a brand that both Katrina and I are proud of.

Her products are beautiful. Using 100% cotton and organic cotton materials, these baby wipes, receiving blankets and quilts are awesome locally-made gifts for the wee ones in your life. Check her out online!

Now I LOVE my ABC's

Last week I posted about the custom alphabet print I made for Ellis' room - and now given as a baby gift to many friends. But when I saw the 'Pretty Patterns Alphabet' print from Landofnod.com, I was inspired to try something with texture.

I'm loving these new prints. They can be customized with a child's name at the bottom, and done in a variety of patterned prints. So cute. 

I'm slowly building up an inventory of my own work. An Etsy shop may be in my future sooner than later!

(Linen and Pattern Alphabet unframed prints $10 . Customized with child's name at the bottom $15)

My ABC's

As a new mom, my FAVOURITE paper projects are all things baby. I was inspired by a number of alphabet prints I found on Etsy before my son was born, and made two versions of the print below. One with Ellis' name, and one with the girl name we had picked (the gender was a surprise).

His room is still unfinished, ugh, but his alphabet print has been up on his wall since day one. 
$15 for an 8x10 unframed print with child's name.
I offer a few different colour combos for girls or boys.  It makes a great shower gift, too.

My new inspiration is the Pretty Patterns Alphabet print I found on Pinterest (from landofnod.com). I have some great digital papers with gorgeous patterns. I can't wait to make my own version of this alphabet. Maybe this weekend?

Waiting for pick-up

Packaged and waiting...
Packaging business cards is easy...now I just have to figure out how I'm going to package an 18"x24" print?

There are so many great packaging inspirations online. Its one of my favourite things to search for on Pinterest right now. Once I have a little money to spend, I'm going to rock the packaging! That first impression really does count.

Here are some of my Pinterest finds for packaging:
