Lynn Bernardi sends us this share today using two of our products. She writes, "The first one is aÂ custom Thank You card we had printed for our wedding clients this year. Â It includes a custom magnet attached to the 5x7 card. Â For the front of the card, I modified the Sweet 16 Circles action to fill up the entire area of the card, and showcased images from our 2009 clients. Â On the inside of the card (second image), I used one of your overlays to frame the "thank you" text. Â The magnet is a 4x4 square that we attach to the bottom inside of the card using repositionable adhesive dots. Â Our clients love them! Â The Sweet 16 Circles were my whole inspiration for the card - I wanted to show off some of our client images, but I didn't want to play favorites and limit myself to one image. Â This way I was able to use some of our favorite bridal, wedding, and engagement images and try to include each of our current clients.
The third image is also a Thank You card, but this one was ordered by our client to send to her guests. Â She was not the typical bride, and didn't want anything to formal or flowery or girly. Â I used one of the Victorian Grunge backgrounds for the background of the card. Â It was printed on a pearl card stock and it looks AWESOME. Â Our client squealed when she opened the box!"
At the end of May, I travelled from Regina, Saskatchewan to Shanghai, China with a group of friends. Our first day in Shanghai was exhilarating! We woke up at theRock & Wood Hostel, purchased a map and planned our day over breakfast in the dining area. There are many green public spaces in Shanghai and they are well utilized. People's Park was a personal favourite. People were dancing, practicing Tai Chi, playing mahjong, sleeping, singing, talkingand eating. I saw a young girl painting with water on the path and watching it fade away. It was beautiful and made my heart happy.
