Our baby girl, Kate, is almost three months old now (time flies!), and I am finally ready to re-open the Toast & Laurel online shop. I have tried to reply to all of the emails inquiring about return address stamps and custom cocktail napkins but thought I would go ahead and put up a blog post in case I missed any. Enjoy your Monday!
Yes - I am still on maternity leave and only working on a handful of custom projects at the moment - but I have some new save the dates available on Minted.com.
The foil pressed "With Love" design . . .
and my "Grand Central" design . . .
Toast & Laurel's 2013 Holiday Collection for Minted features three cards specifically designed for business and corporate greetings. These would also make great holiday cards for non-profits, foundations, and even individuals looking for a clean, classic non-photo card. For businesses, the best part is that you can now upload your own logo for a bespoke design.
Here are the three designs, all available through my Minted Storefront:
West Coast design by Toast & Laurel
Montauk design by Toast & Laurel
Greenwich design by Toast & Laurel
Each of the three designs can be customized with different color palettes, unique layouts, personal greetings & logo, making the cards perfect for law firms, creative businesses, and non-profits alike.
No, I'm not talking about the countdown to Christmas, but the number of weeks left until my due date! Yes - I am 34 weeks pregnant and still going strong with lots of custom holiday card orders :) I haven't figured out my exact stopping point before maternity leave, but the studio schedule is pretty much completely full for the next few weeks. I will probably be willing to make time for a couple more really great custom projects, but you can choose from a full collection of Toast & Laurel holiday cards over at Minted this year! You can visit my storefront at Minted to see the exclusive collection.
Here are a few of the designs to give you an idea . . .
Each card design can be customized by choosing your color favorite palette, changing up the wording, and inserting your favorite holiday photo. I am so proud of this collection and will post more photos over the next few days of more designs over at Minted!
Lots of projects to photograph, so little time!
I am a little late to the party but just joined Instagram . . . so you may have seen a couple of these updates already.
The first project I need to photograph and add to my portfolio? My sweet nephew's birth announcement . . . only the most important design of the year so far!
That's right, Colleen has a baby brother! My sister and brother-in-law now have their hands full with two little ones under two. Brayden is already 5 months and a true blessing. We are all a bit in love!
And if you remember Colleen's birth announcement, then Brayden's probably looks familiar. My sister and I opted to use the same design, customizing the font and color. The design was letterpress printed on Crane's Lettra 110 lb. Pearl White paper, and the photos were individually attached by this very proud aunt :)
Here are a few other project sneak peeks:
Goodies from The Broach Foundation for Brain Cancer Research's 2nd Annual Gala . . . I promise to post pictures from both galas soon!
