Back in February, I was asked to be a judge on Minted to pick my favorite baby or bridal shower invitation. Being a paper/stationary-aholic I jumped at the opportunity. After sifting through hundreds and hundreds of beautiful designs the one that stood out the most was called “Umbrella of Advice” designed by the lovely Carrie O’Neal.
What drew me to this baby shower invite was the use of beautiful typefaces and the vintage feel of the umbrella. Growing up my mom would give me old French books from flea markets to do crafts with – this brought back a lot of those memories. I’m hoping I can use this invitation for the next baby shower I host!
Tomorrow all of the shower invitations that won from this design challenge will be up for sale. I couldn’t be more excited for all of these amazing designers that put so much time into these invitations.
Well, I’m incredibly excited to announce that one lucky reader will win a $150 Minted gift certificate! Just pop over to Minted and then leave a comment here telling us which invitations or stationary you would purchase with the certificate.
A lucky winner will be chosen Wednesday, April 27th (ending at midnight PST) and please be sure to leave your email address if you don’t have it in your blogger profile.
This month I’m honored to be guest judging the Minted Design Challenge along with Erin from Design for Mankind and Meg from A Practical Wedding. Let me just tell you, I’m overwhelmed and blown away with the amazingness that is already flooding in – it’s going to be quite a challenge to pick my favorite. With only ten days left to submit your unique shower invitations for brides, moms-to-be or couples either getting married or having a baby, you better get designing readers! I know there are TONS of creative people out there that need to start designing.
These are just a few that I’m loving right now, but I have a feeling we’ll be getting tons more submissions in the next couple of days that I’ll be going gaga over. Hope to see all of you over on Minted! Let the creative juices start following!
