Freshly Minted: Save the Date Cards

Wedding season is nearly upon us, which, as I'm sure you can imagine, is a busy time in the stationery world. I'm excited to share that I have three designs in Minted's 2014 Save the Date collection. I squealed (out loud, no less) when I saw that Minted had chosen one of my new designs to feature on the home page. I had to take a screen shot and share it here, because I'm sure you're just as excited as I am. In a community of designers as talented as those at Minted, it's an honor, to say the least.

I have three cards in the collection this year, including two brand new designs.

Rustic Charm Save the Date Cards

Rustic Charm is a sweetly simple save the date card featuring delicate lace on a kraft background. I love that it's both casual and elegant at the same time. It's ideal for couples planning a sweet and memorable day.

Awash Save the Date Cards

Awash is a classic and sophisticated design bathed in a subtle wave of color. The colors can easily be changed to coordinate with any scheme. With effortless beauty, it's perfect for couples planning a slightly more formal affair.

Timeless Save the Date Cards

Timeless lives up to its name. It features the couple's names in beautiful script that will never go out of style. Depending on the photo, it can be either modern or traditional, which makes it the obvious choice for couples looking to strike a balance between the two. Timeless is also available in postcard and magnet formats, both of which are fun and affordable options to consider.

Minted: 'Oh What Fun' Holiday Photo Card Challenge

I've been getting into the holiday spirit over the past few weeks, working on designs for minted's annual holiday card challenge. I know, it sounds crazy to be thinking about Christmas in the middle of June, but trust me when I say that it's always Christmas in the stationery world. Designers submitted 3,348 truly spectacular designs to the challenge, and now it's up to you to select the designs that minted will sell. I've linked to a few of my designs below to give you a little sampling, but you can see the entire collection on the Felicity Paper facebook page.

holiday photo cards - Simply Rejoice

Simply Rejoice - Christmas Photo Cards

Simply Rejoice is hands down my favorite Christmas card this year. I love the gilded type and simple reminder to rejoice during one of the most hectic times of year. It's classic and beautiful, and I hope to use it for our cards this year (yes, I've already decided).

holiday photo cards - Bright Type

Bright Type - Holiday Photo Cards

Bright Type is a simple and clean Christmas card that highlights the customer's name with alternating colors. It's modern and fun and has just the right touch of whimsy.

holiday photo cards - Gilded Type

Gilded Type Newlywed Christmas Cards

Gilded Type is the perfect card for newly married (and merry) couples. Its claim to fame is gorgeous faux gold foil in an elegant script.

holiday photo cards - Piled Presents

Piled Presents - Holiday Photo Cards

Piled Presents features a brightly colored pile of presents and a large photo. It would make a perfect holiday card for anyone who loves gifts, and seriously, who doesn't love a nicely wrapped present?

holiday photo cards - Wishful Thinking

Wishful Thinking - Holiday Photo Cards

And finally, Wishful Thinking is a perfect card for all those parents of newborns who are praying for a good night's sleep. Anyone who has had a baby can relate to this tongue-in-cheek birth announcement Christmas card that's sure to draw a chuckle.

Freshly Minted: Barnyard Crew Invitations

I'm really, really excited to share these invitations with you. A couple of months ago, minted hosted a children's birthday party challenge, and I designed my entries specifically with baby girl's upcoming birthday in mind. She'll be one next week, y'all. Be still my heart.

But I digress. Since we're living on the farm with Dennis' parents right now, a farm-themed party seemed wholly appropriate for Kendall's first birthday celebration.

Enter my Barnyard Crew invitations, available exclusively at minted, shown here in the Barnyard Red colorway. I literally squealed from the cuteness when I received them last week. I paired them with aqua envelopes, then finished them off with cheery yellow address labels and red gingham washi tape.

Aren't they the sweetest thing ever? It was so much fun to order my own design from minted and ship them off to our family and friends. The big day is just over a week away, and now that everyone has had time to receive their invites in the mail, I just couldn't wait any longer to share them with you.

farm-party-invites-leslie-ann-jones-barn-birthday

One last little close-up of the animals that I created. I think the spotted cow is my favorite. Or maybe it's the chick. I can't decide. So stinkin' cute.

Perfect for any tot's farm party, boys and girls alike. Get your Barnyard Crew invites at minted and use the code SHOPZU2BCU to get 10 percent off your entire order.

Don't say I never gave you anything ;)

Until next time, grace and peace.
