welcome to in a card's blog...

i know that "cute" is not a word typically used to describe good design, but in my world, it is. if it's your first reaction to say, "aww... how cute!" then it must be just that! "C-U-T-E." and i'm talking about so incredibly, ridiculously cute that the most masculine of men will even say those three words without thinking twice about it.

and so that is what i hope to share with you on my blog...

a combination of really unique ideas, simple thoughts that come randomly into my mind, along with "cute" designs that i've designed or come across.

i got such great response to my quotable cards this year, i decided to add to the line.  8 new ones to be exact, which you can find on my Etsy shop.

custom designs for Chlo + E

what do you get when you cross event planners and "in a card"?
answer: a match made in heaven!

when i design invitations for a party it's always nice to see the theme played throughout the entire event.  from the invitations, to the decorations, to the party favors and sometimes even to the dessert.  i always thought it would be amazing to work alongside event planners because i know they would be able to showcase my design the best way possible.

so you could imagine how excited i was when chloe & elana, of Chlo + E Events, contacted me regarding a vintage race car themed party they were preparing for and needed some designs for the party favor labels and buffet table tags.  a few emails later a vintage race car was designed and a milk & cookies table was added along.  here are a few pics, courtesy of Chlo + E Events, of the milk & cookies table.
