03.30.17 | 3 Years Later.

It’s hard to believe I launched Everyday Ink Designs 3 years ago.  I always loved designing and creating print design, but never really imagined I’d turn it into a business.  After friends were regularly encouraging me do so I took the leap…and here we are.  Now being a mom–I am blessed enough to get to stay home with our little one, while still having a creative outlet and projects to work on during nap time. 🙂 bestisyet_white

Over the past 3 years I’ve had the chance of meeting some great people and have also worked with many clients whom I’ve never actually met. Initially most of my clients were people I knew and now I receive many clients through referrals.

If you have been a part of my journey, I appreciate your support and trust in me to create your design.  If you have referred me to someone–I thank you as well.  Cheers to many more years of Everyday Ink!


03.14.17 | 15 Months of Love

I’m not quite sure how it has already been 3 months since our little dude turned ONE!  With his birthday being so close to Christmas we had a small gathering with friends in Wisconsin before heading to St. Louis for the holiday with family.

I ordered him this adorable shirt from Etsy, and therefore ‘Mr. One-derful’ became the theme for his invitation. {Plus it’s very fitting!}

Did I really need invitations–No. However, I needed something for his baby book…right?!

In the future, we’re debating on recognizing his half birthday instead, since Christmas is so close.  Then he would get to celebrate in December and June. Share your thoughts please! Any of you with December birthdays have an opinion on this?!

{Here is his simply sweet invite}

02.23.17 | And my pick is…

Well, it’s been quite some time since my last blog post.  I thought I’d start off my first post of 2017 reflecting on my favorite project from last year.

It’s hard to choose–but I’d have to go with my Vintage Airplane Baby Shower Collection.   When my friend Anna pitched this idea to me I knew I had to get every plane ticket detail right!  And…I love a good challenge!

Those that knew Rebecca well may have picked up on some hidden meanings on the front of the board pass.  I used Gate C1 and Seat 1C, because this was their first child and their last initial is ‘C.’  Rebecca was due on September 25th…therefore I chose a flight time of 925.  Perhaps I am the only one who made the connection–being the designer and all–but it was fun regardless!

This collection included a boarding pass invitation (front + back), place cards and a thank you card design.

Happy Thanksgiving all!

You may remember the gender reveal scratch-off cards I recently featured.  Well…the little guys arrived into this world on September 5th!

A few weeks later, I went home to St. Louis to meet my newborn twin nephews, Milo + Angelo.  I even had the chance to witness {and help out a little} at their first photo session with Tracey from Love and Life Photography!  They were both troopers, even though they pooped in baskets, peed on me multiple times and squawked a little.  They’re babies–what do you expect!?

Anyways, I designed this precious {semi-biased} birth announcement for my sister.

On the back of the announcement we left extra blank space to write a ‘thank you’ note to anyone who sent gifts after the boys were born!

And just because I can…here’s another fav from their first photo shoot!

11.10.15 | Cheers to 50 Years!

As we sat at dinner on a ship in the middle of the Adriatic Sea, Tess was telling me about her parents’ upcoming 50th anniversary party.  She was looking for an invitation design that would incorporate their prom picture…yet she was hesitant to mail this special photograph off to some design company across the country.  As she told me more about her concept, I loved the idea and wanted to be a part of bringing her vision to life.

Shortly after our trip, she emailed the image and I worked my *magic* to increase the quality of the photograph.  I’m not going to lie–I was a little worried the resolution wouldn’t improve, but thankfully it did.

I hope these two enjoyed celebrating their love with family and friends!
