You’ve Stolen My Heart – Giveaway

Valentine’s day is only a few weeks away, and we’ll all be celebrating those special people in our lives by showing them how much we love and adore them. It’s also a great excuse to get crafty! let’s face it, the holiday season is drawing to a close, which means all of our crafting excuses are also coming to an end. After Valentine’s day it’s no longer acceptable to have jars of glitter hanging around, fabric or felt pieces on the floor, and parchment paper rolls sitting in the corner of your living room, so we better enjoy it now!

Thus, in honor of this upcoming holiday, I’m doing a giveaway! Go ahead and leave a comment below with your best Valentine’s day DIY idea + “Like” the T&CO. Facebook and you can win a set of 5 of these sweet Valentine’s below! I will draw the name of the winner on Friday!

The Lightfoot Family is Growing by Two Feet!

I am SO excited to introduce one of my favorite couples ever! We first met Sean + Nicole back in 2010, a couple happily in love and ready to plan their dream wedding. Ashley & I were lucky enough to be asked to create their wedding invites, guest book cover, gift bag tags and a few other items. From then on they were S heart N in our book!

So you wouldn’t have to guess how thrilled I was when I received an e-mail from them letting me know they were expecting and ready for some baby announcements/Christmas cards! As a designer that is one of the things that gives you validation and reminds you why you’re doing this. So Nicole and myself went straight to work and did a little brain storming before coming up with the card below. As you can see the “heart” stamp recurs throughout their wedding invites to their baby announcements!
