{crafty} Printables & Etsy

When I started my Etsy shop it was with one main purpose in mind, to share my love of everything paper in the form of inspirational words and quotes. Sometimes I do veer off to do something fun or whimsical, because let's face it, it's fun! 

I have some new altered frames and other projects in the works but lately my shop has taken quite a turn from paper based items to vinyl decals and signs. I have learned a lot along the way, like the fact that my love for fonts may soon overtake my paper hoarding problem, but I am learning more every day. I have been thinking about going back to school for the last few years and I suddenly (like just now as I started typing) decided I want to go back for Graphic Design. I have always been crazy undecided when it comes to schooling. I went to school for Psychology then jumped to Graphic Design (weird huh!?) and eventually Interior Design and all of that was many years ago. In the meantime I am going to play and teach myself what I can. After creating vinyl designs I recently started leaning towards print designs as well because I love the versatility of making quick color and size changes. Here are a few designs I have made recently. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you may have seen this first one, for a limited time I am making this available as a free download! I just ask that you please give credit where it's due if used in a project. 

I admit, while I do like this one I do plan on revisiting it. I like the way this font played well with these words, I'm not sure it was the right choice.

 I also recently used this design in another color scheme as a bold title for a layout using Crate Paper's Acorn Avenue (photo removed for publication)
