Graphic Design Fun: hart+sew


I really miss my old job, creating posters and banners for student activities, from my old school days. I think that’s part of the reason why I even have a blog in the first place. It’s always needing to be redesigned and modified, so I can flex what little graphic design muscles I have. I always get so excited when I get the opportunity to design for someone else. It’s just so fun to work on fun/unique design projects.


A couple of months ago a friend of mine, Stacy Hart, emailed me to see if I would make some designs for her etsy shoppe. I got particularly excited because there are so many crappy etsy banners out there. She just opened shop and I really want to brag about the design.

I think the name she came up with was super cute. Kind of like heart + soul, but her last name is Hart and she likes to sew. Anyway, you should check out the hart+sew etsy shop which has the MOST adorable hand sewn clothes from vintage patterns. Check out the hart+sew blog, too, it’s full of great ideas and Stacy’s super cute projects.

      lol i think everyone misses sascm at one time or another, but then all you have to think of is the picky clients who thought they knew design + photography, and clearly remember that it wasn’t all good!

        Yeah, too true. I remember designing stuff for Dean over at dining and sending him a MILLION and one proofs and he’d never be happy. I always knew that if I put a purple and forest green gradient in front of his face, all would be well. EW.

      This is nice! And her stuff is really cute. At least you can design for YOU instead of little BYUSA-ers who thought they knew it all. :)

      Looks great Melissa!

    4. Skip Hop Studio Diaper Tote Tote is awesome.So numerous wallets – and not these modest, worthless pockets, either. All of the storage compartments tend to be a fantastic dimension and really assist keep every thing organized. The handles are a wonderful length and fit nicely over the actual shoulder; the tackle shoulder straps also stay put on my shoulder, which is actually vital as soon as you are taking a newborn. The tote looks great, too. Not too fancy, but not as well casual. (I’ve it in black) The material is soft (can’t consider of a better word) so it’s simple to squeeze in to tight spaces – but yet it is sturdy. I’ve a Fleurville Lexi tote and I adore it, too, but that handbag is kind of rigid. I assume this Skip*Hop may become my everyday tote. It is a bit huge – so if you’re not in to big hand bags this may perhaps be greater as an over-night baby diaper bag.
