Dogear Press Projects: Minted’s Baby Shower Challenge

Another Minted contest... and this time I’m actually posting within the correct voting window. A few years ago, I wouldn’t have been particularly inspired to enter a baby shower challenge, but now so many of my friends have had children that imagining the details of a fun baby shower doesn’t seem so foreign to me. I was able to complete one entry for the On the Way! Baby Shower Challenge and thought it would be fun to think about some décor elements to go along with my invite. I especially love the DIY painted cups! Click here to vote (it should be open later this afternoon and runs through October 21st).

Dogear Press Projects: Minted’s Save the Date Challenge

* Update: Sorry for the misinformation... unfortunately voting closed on September 30th! Hopefully you'll still get some enjoyment from looking through some of the designs.

It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to enter the Minted Challenges – a crazy work schedule meant that one deadline after another slipped by. I was getting a bit sad about the lack of design time in my life, so I was happy to be able to enter Minted’s recent “Don’t Forget! Save the Date Challenge.” Sometimes I can over think a design, so this time around I forced myself to just go ahead and pull the trigger on a few different ideas I came up with. Below are two of my favorite entries... If you’re so inclined, you can vote here (FYI, you will need to have a Minted account) – there are some really lovely designs in the challenge.
