minted giveaway!

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.

Invitations: one, two, three (coming soon), four, and five

    I love Minted and used them for our wedding invites! If I had the chance to use them again, I'd probably go for personal stationary–love 'Paris+From Stripes to Chevrons', 'easy elegance' or 'Stripes and Ribbon' …OR… birth anouncements for when we have our 1st wee one :)–maybe 'Vintage Baby', 'Heirloom Bloom' or 'bright hello' …wow, sorry, I just can't help myself so many fun options 🙂
