Happy Love Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Just wanted to share a quick peek at the card I designed and mailed out to friends and family. I had lots of fun with type and lettering with this design and printed a batch of these on double thick cotton stock.

Free Printable Kids Valentines

Valentine’s day is just around the corner! If you have yet to pick up valentine cards for your kids to hand out in school, then you’re in luck because I’m sharing a new free printable! These cute classroom valentines were a mini-collaboration and labor of love between me and my honey.  My boyfriend draws and does “cute” better than I, so he was happy to sketch out these adorable robots. I  added color, texture and type to make these sweet cards. Great for both robot-loving boys and girls. Enjoy!

Cute Robot Valentine's Day CardsDesigned with love by Hooray Creative. FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY.


Print on 8.5″ x 11″ high-quality paper. I used 100% white cotton stock that I had from Paper Source, which I fed through my inkjet printer on a borderless page setting. However, I also tried matte photo paper and some nice cream-colored watercolor paper, both of which worked great too. Trim with paper cutter or exacto knife, vertically and horizontally through the center. The trimmed cards measure 4.25″ x 5.5″.

Birth Announcement Challenge

I am the proud mother of one very handsome, super adorable cat. :) But alas, Minted’s current design challenge is all about human babies – beautiful, modern birth announcements to be exact. I know lots of new moms, so for inspiration, I just tried to imagine the kind of designs that they would want to use to announce the arrival of their newborn.  The goal was to keep the focus on the lovely photos with complimentary typography. I also threw in some luxurious gold/silver foil accents since Minted will be launching more foil-pressed birth announcements for 2014. Yay! I have 8 entries in Minted’s Welcome Little One! Birth Announcement Challenge and I would really appreciate your vote! You can rate on my designs at the image links below or on this challenge page. Thanks so much!
