Petite Lemon Christmas Cards & Trend Boards

Trends come and go, but I feel that some seem to stay longer than others. One trend that seems to keep going and going for the last few years are the Metallics! I see them everywhere, especially in card designs. Plus with the recent addition of REAL gold foil on all of the card sites like Shutterfly, Tiny Prints and Minted, why not add gold foil to everything! It’s totally hot!

I thought I’d share with you one of my mood/trend boards that I did. This one is Metallics.

And here’s a few cards based off of that trend. I don’t think this one made it. But there is a card that was based off of this one that has REAL GOLD FOIL! You can see it here.

And here’s another layout that I tried, on a folding card.

This one has the Mercury glass as a full background. It was a tricky texture to recreate! Thank goodness for photoshop!

Here’s metallic paints. Paint textures are another hot trend this season, especially watercolor!

Metallics are also hot with glitter, not just foil textures.

New Growth Chart & Onesies at PetiteLemon

There’s a new growth chart available for purchase on PetiteLemon.com! Her name is Lily June and she’s a mermaid! Don’t you think every little girl deserves some color and imagination in their rooms? I know my daughter Charlotte does, and this is the one she’s chosen just for her! In fact, I’m ordering the blonde haired mermaid for her soon. Especially since we just redecorated the nursery. I’ll make sure to post pictures soon of the finished room.

NEW designs for Petite Lemon

Hello Friends!

I’m so excited to introduce you to a few new designs that I did for Petite Lemon! Last Spring Petite Lemon launched a new line of personalized tees for kids! The “Big Sister” tee would be perfect to let your family know that there is another one on the way! I plan on purchasing one eventually. But, until that happens, I’m just going to enjoy the adorableness of the one I have! This Summer, we went up to Salt Lake and she got to be one of the models for Petite Lemon! She is so photogenic don’t ya think! Which tee is your favorite? Go check out all of them here!

24 days of FREE christmas downloads

I am on cloud 9 right now! I seriously feel like I’m on a lucky streak. What better way to start the Holiday season then with FREE gifts. A few weeks ago, I attended an Open House and received a strand of pearls from Goldsmith Jewelers. My daughter actually wears them more then me! Ha ha! Then I received a $200 credit to myfonts.com from Minted.com. I purchased Bombshell and Jacques & Gilles from Emily Lime. They really are beautiful calligraphy fonts. And I have already used them on some cards I’ve designed for Petite Lemon for Shutterfly. I’ve shared a few below.

Then yesterday I got another email from Minted.com saying that I had received another $200 credit for this board that I created on their site. And I just used it to create some killer gifts for my friends for Christmas! I was going to use some of the designs that were already on there but found a way to upload my own designs onto them. I’ll make sure and show them once I get them (probably after Christmas). Oh, and here’s something I didn’t know about Minted.com, is that you can order Party Decor. I ordered a large cake stand and some cute striped straws. I’m starting to gear up for Char’s birthday party. I can’t believe it’s been a year since her tea party. I’m thinking a treasure hunt or mystery birthday party. She’s been into Peter Pan and Tinkerbell lately, so I think she’ll really enjoy that.

I wanted to make you aware of the 24 days of Free Christmas Downloads which me and a few of my awesome designer friends will be starting on Saturday, December 1st! So mark your calendars. You’re in for a treat! Don’t believe me? Go and see what we did last year!

 

Here are a few of the last minute cards I designed for Petite Lemon for Shutterfly. I really am excited the way that they turned out! If you would like to purchase them, just click on the image.
