I've been a little pattern quiet lately but it's only because I've been busy working on holiday cards! It's almost the end of October so for us designers, we need to be working months ahead of time to prepare for the upcoming seasons. Anyway, I've decided to open a Zazzle store this holiday and have a bunch of brand new photo holiday card designs along with matching gift tags, address labels, and stickers. The header photo below will get you to the front page of my store where you can view everything. Below that are my new individual photo holiday cards where you can click through to see the details and purchase. Happy Holiday Card Hunting!

I've been working really hard on my holiday collections with the various companies that I work with and it's paying off! Elizabeth Victoria Designs has been featured in a few different email campaigns this holiday as well as a Back to School one. (Yes, I'm a little late for that!) The first one is from Kleinfeld Paper and features two of my photo holiday cards, Boughs of Joy, which features a modern black, white and gold color scheme and Glittery Ombre, which features a pink and glittery gold theme with the background having the ombre effect that blends with your favorite photo.
Minted released their special prize winners for their Day Planner, Notebook and Address Book Challenge. I'm really excited about this one because with thousands of entries, you're lucky to get a pick for each challenge let alone a special prize. My App for That design got a runner up nod, which is a win in my book! I created a comical cover with a watercolor background and the verbiage "YES, I KNOW THERE'S AN APP FOR THIS" playing on the fact that everyone and their mother uses their phones for everything but there are people out there that still like the written day planner, journal or address book.
And back in August, my Washi Chalkboard Notes calendar was featured in Minted's back to school email campaign. The calendar is able to be ordered starting on any month you choose, which I think is pretty awesome. With the new year approaching quickly, it's definitely something to think about. Plus, they make awesome christmas gifts for grandma and grandpa! Personalize them with the grandkids pictures and even important dates like 'Joey's 5th Birthday'. Click here to read all about each campaign in the PRESS section of my website or you can click through any image to purchase the cards or get more info. Thanks for visiting!
I can't believe it's October already, but that's ok because in the paper industry, that means the biggest and busiest time of the year is coming….the holidays! Yes, I'm already excited for Christmas. Well, this year I have some exciting news to share. I've been working on a specific project for months now and it's finally time to spill the beans! Do any of you watch the TV show SAY YES TO THE DRESS? It's so fun, right?! Kleinfeld Bridal serves over 17,000 brides per year and what many of you probably don't know is that they have a paper company as well. Like their bridal line, it compliments their exemplary service and high end brand. I'm really excited and completely honored to be working with one of the biggest leaders in the wedding industry….Kleinfeld Paper!
My first endeavor with them was to design holiday cards so that's how I spent my summer. I know, I truly live Christmas in July. Every. Year. But that's ok, it's the nature of my business and I love it! Anyway, Kleinfeld recently launched their 2014 holiday collection and much to my surprise, two of my cards are featured on their homepage which is super exciting! Below is a peek at all of the cards I designed for them including the backers. Feel free to click through to get more information as far as printing/paper options, liners, colors, etc. as well as how you can purchase these babies for your holiday cards! My next venture will be designing wedding invitations and I can't wait! Stay tuned!
Thanks for coming! Talk to you soon! ~ Beth
