{Can't get enough of...}

I was looking through my iPhone recently and noticed a common theme: ranunculuses! I LOVE these flowers. They make me happy just looking at them, especially with the range of colours they come in. They aren't in season for long, so I think I'm trying to soak them all in.

{New Project} City Stamps!

I've been working on this city stamp project for a little while now, and I'm so happy to see it come to life! They can be used on letters, envelopes, gift tags, travel notebooks, pretty much anything! The original idea for the stamps actually came when I was designing postcards (a work still in progress).

When deciding on what cities to design, I wanted them to be major cities, but also ones that had a significant meaning for me. So I ended up with San Francisco (a city very close to home because of family), New York (the first time I officially traveled on my own), Paris (visiting an old friend, beautiful gardens, art, architecture, French pastries & macarons, I could go on & on...), London (a perfect way to end a month of traveling), and of course Vancouver (my beautiful hometown).

There are other cities I would love to create stamps for like Singapore and Tokyo.

What do you think of these stamps? Would you want one of these or even the whole set? Would love to hear your feedback on this project. Thanks!

{Book of Notes}

I was inspired to create my very own Book of Notes after reading this lovely post from oh, hello friend. If you haven't made one for someone special, whether to thank them or just because, I really encourage you to! It's a great way to send something personal, thoughtful and definitely one of a kind. After doing a rough layout on paper, I decided to create a 16 page book (4 flats). I also ended customizing a standard mailing envelope to package the book in. Here are a few pics from parts of the book I created. You can check out more books from oh, hello friend here.

{LAUNCH!} New Collection In Shop

After several months of sketching and editing, back to sketching then editing (repeat this multiple times and in reverse order), my new Spring 2013 Collection is out! I'm incredibly excited and happy about the way the cards turned out. With this collection I wanted the designs to be a little brighter, more colourful, and cheerful, while still staying true to the same overall style of my past collections.

There are a few themes:

For Foodies: Many of my new cards have been inspired by my love for good food and sweet treats.

For Him: Who says there aren't any good cards for guys out there? I made sure to include a selection for Father's Day as well.

For Her: From Mother's Day cards to a 'just because' note for your best girlfriend.

I would love to hear what you think of the new cards. I'll have them at the upcoming Got Craft? event happening April 27 - 28 at the Maritime Labour Centre in Vancouver. You can also view the complete new collection and get the cards in the shop HERE first!
