It's been a while since I featured some of my favorite layouts here on the blog. And is it just me, or is our gallery pretty amazing? It was super hard to pick a few to show here, and these are only some of my favorites.

By Claire
▲ By Claire - Great use of white space and little clusters!

By Tina
▲ By Tina - Great reminder to do an all about me layout. Love the question and answer format.

By Paddy
▲ By Paddy - Great effect with the stacked photo. I always love this look, but never think to do it myself.
Also I love the tucked in little words.

By Marina
▲ By Marina - I love all the different contrasting papers and elements. It has just the right mix of mix and match.

By Maia
▲ By Maia - Great way to show off a big photo. Love the words over the photo.

By Vanessa
▲ By Vanessa - Love all the scattered bits and paint. Lots to look at, but not too much.

By Megan
▲ By Megan - I love everything about this. The use of leaves and wood, the cutout, the clustering. Wonderful!

By Kavel
▲ By Kavel - Love all the bits and pieces scattered about. It's a real art to get things scattered just right, and she's done a great job!

Great job everyone! Can't wait to see what everyone makes in the future!

Feeling Official - Fancy Business Cards

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 10/10/2014 - 11:27

A few weeks ago I was helping my mom design a business card for her new business when it occurred to me that I should really have a business card of my own. People are always curious when they find out that I run a website, and it was pretty lame that I never had a card to give them. But that problem has been solved.

I had seen a printing site called Moo around a bit in my internet wanderings, and I had kept it in the back of my mind as a place that looked like it would make cool business cards. So when I finally determined to get some, I thought I'd give it a go.

The reason Moo stuck out to me (besides being called Moo) is that they let you print a different image on every card. And when you deal with a lot of images, this a pretty cool feature. Also, they have a square card which is great for serious Instagrammers I suppose, but also ideal for digital scrapbookers!

No longer will people look at me with a confused stare when I tell them I digital scrapbook! The proof is in the pudding. (I think that expression makes sense here, I'm not really clear what it means, but I think it sounds good.)

The only problem is that they are really cute and I don't want to give them away. If you're interested in getting some business cards for yourself, use my referral link! It will give me a little something for when I run out of business cards, and it will also get you 10% off your purchase.
