Personalize a Gift Card

Gift cards are sometimes the best gifts for people, but can feel so impersonal. My husband's family draws names for a gift exchange each Christmas. I decided to go with gift cards for our two family members. Even though I had put thought into each place they'd receive a gift card to, it just didn't seam like it. I decided to make the card it was given in more personal and like it was meant just for them. Here's what I came up with...

A quick photoshop job of my husband's parents as latin dancers to go with their Cafe Rio gift card. Cafe Rio is a huge favorite of theirs.

We decided to give my sister-in-law a gift card to print her blog. The front of her card was a screen shot of her blog with our Christmas card and gift as her most recent post.

My brother-in-law enjoys photography as one of his many hobbies. I thought this might be a fun way to dress up a gift card to a camera store. The gift card was placed on the card where the screen on the back of the camera would be.

I know many kids have a favorite song they love to sing over and over, so I thought I'd share this idea of a way to personalize and hold on to that memory. My little niece turned three last week and I decided to give her this picture with her favorite song on it. She sings "You are my Sunshine" all the time, especially to her baby sister, only she sings it "You are my Only Sunshine." Do your kids have a favorite song or phrase they say all the time?

2010 Calendar

I'm so excited about this new 12x18 calendar that will be available at all four boutiques next month. I will be hanging one of these up in my kitchen as soon as they come back from press. I've already got a spot ready!

Halloween Mailer

A few weeks ago I designed a postcard mailer for Nettie of Nettie's Gnomes to send out to all her customers for her annual Witches Ball. She has been making these little dolls for over 20 years and has fun little parties for people to attend and purchase them. I'm sure her Christmas Ball will be just as fun and exciting.

What do these all have in common?

If you guessed these are the boutiques Green Lily Designs will be a vendor at this November you're right! I have four boutiques next month and I'm so excited to introduce a ton of new designs. Visit me at Oh Sweet Sadie, Piper & Chloe, Bijou Market and Tom & Lucy's Art Shoppe. Come enjoy a fun holiday shopping experience.

My Dear Clementine

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be able to make a business card for such a talented person. Linnea started My Dear Clementine and sells darling handmade accessories. She wanted a business card that looked like a vintage air mail envelope. I think we accomplished it. Check out her etsy shop. I think you'll have some fun. I know I did.

The Checkered Umbrella Boutique

Well I just experienced my first boutique as a vendor this past weekend. I was able to meet so many talented women through this event and snatch up a few great items myself! I've decided I will be selling a few custom designs at future boutiques including thank you cards, gift tags, and alphabet and number posters for children's rooms. So be on the look out for those. As you can see in the picture below, there are quite a few designs on my board that aren't on my blog. Now that all the craziness is over preparing for the boutique, I will be putting more designs up for all to see! If you're one of the lucky ones that stopped by the boutique and entered to win a custom baby info print check back tomorrow to see if you're the winner.

Flower Notebook

I have always wanted to design and make my own notebook. This weekend I did just that. It was wonderful! Now I just want to look and it and never use it so it keeps those crisp edges. I'm so weird about paper.
