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.

live your own life

a quote by Steve Jobs:

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."

a sweet 18

nickelodeon teen queen, victoria justice, recently turned 18 and the girls from Chlo+E totally out did themselves with a dessert, fruit AND candy table for her big birthday bash at Tru Hollywood.

here are a few pics Chlo+E shared with me and a few close-up shots of the buffet tags i designed for this fab event.

i played off of the fun sexy burlesque theme with a lace and fishnet design.

and here is a pic of the birthday girl herself, victoria justice

i ♥ stationery!

i love all things stationery related.  so when christine contacted me regarding additional stationery items for her business, christine chang photography, i was super excited.

a while back i revamped her company's look with a new logo, business cards and a really cool usb card. it's always fun designing for someone who shares a similar taste in design, 'cause i pretty much get to design whatever i like and 98% of the time, they will always like it. makes my job real easy breezy and really fun.

here's a look into the whole set with a few close up shots showcasing some fun aspects of this custom stationery set.

a blank notecard is always good to have around for a handwritten note of thanks.  paired with a colored envelope, it'll turn a simple message into something very special.

jotting down notes or sending a quick little memo is so much more fun on pretty paper...

i think a custom seal is like the cherry on top of a sundae.

if you're looking for custom stationery for your business or even for personal use, feel free to contact me for more info.
