Design a Day Challenge: Day 4

On the fourth day, I went for the mod look. Flat stationery note cards (can you tell that I've got the itch for the flat white linen note cards these days?) with yellow and gray lines and bubbles. A clean look with one of my favorite color combinations! I kind of want to reserve a set for myself!

While I usually make the first batch of stationery for myself or as a give away to a friend, I've been instead using fun little names I've created on my own. I hope you love my made up names for my new stationery designs as well-- they are almost just as fun to come up with! So far Elizabeth Keen and Kristen Fox are two very lucky ladies to have such classy stationery, if I must say so myself! If you have any fabulous names to suggest for my upcoming designs, I'd be more than happy to hear them!

And I promise, eventually I'll get out of the use-white-linen-card-stock-for-all-of-my-new-designs phase. I have something in mind for some blush colored cards I recently acquired. And no, this time these aren't my new faves-- that's still reserved for the cute aqua button notes. :)

Summer Design Challenge & a Sneak Peak

Day two of summer vacation is under way and I've already been productive in the design department. So far, I've come up with two unique summer designs-- one a day. And quite frankly, they may be some of my best to date. So, motivated by a previous summer challenge of a photo a day for the entire summer, I am going to embark on a similar mission. Ideally, I'd love to have a new design every day for the summer, but I realize that I may be a bit over ambitious. So I will start with a design a day for the next 30 days. I will post the results on this lovely blog so keep me motivated and encouraged! I am envisioning wonderful summer designs with lots of color to come! I'll start with my first post tomorrow so I'll leave you with a quick sneak peak!
