West Elm Art Print Challenge at Minted

West Elm, the purveyors of ultra cool and modern furniture + home decor, recently partnered with Minted, the purveyors of ultra cool and modern stationery + art prints! A match made in heaven, don't you think? The collaboration resulted in an Art Print Challenge at Minted, with the potential of, not only a cash prize of $1000, but also having your art prints sold exclusively at West Elm + Minted.

There were tons of gorgeous entries, and I'm not sure I even have a chance, but here are my humble little pieces. We were asked to create inspiration boards for each piece, using products/images from West Elm. Here's what I put together:

Well, hope you enjoyed my designs and inspiration boards! Let me know what you think. And, If you have the time, I would soooo appreciate it if you could vote for me. Here are the links to the designs - just in case you wanna. Thank you so much, in advance!! Wish me luck!! -xo, lori :)


Minted Wedding Inspiration Boards

In my previous post, I mentioned how much I love weddings, and I posted a couple of inspiration boards I created (see post). Well, right now, Minted is having a Wedding Inspiration Board Challenge (see entry details), and I wanted to showcase some of my favorites from the entries so far. They're really beautiful!

The inspiration board below "Retro Heart Tattoo" by Jody Wody is my favorite! I absolutely love the retro vibe of the entire piece, and the imagery is so befitting! The wedding invitation, itself, is so unique + fun! You already get the impression that this is not going to be your average wedding. I love how the theme + colors of the invitation are echoed throughout the images, creating an ambience of vintage flair. I definitely want to go to this wedding! Don't you?!

Here are some more inspiration boards that I just adore! I'd love to attend all of these weddings! I'm already imagining what I'd wear to each one . . . what would you wear?

If you're looking for ideas for that dream wedding you're planning, wedding inspiration boards are a great place to start. You'll find lots of ideas, from gorgeous dresses, to fun themes and accessories, to beautiful and exotic locations and venues. These Minted inspiration boards also feature a sampling of their fabulous selection of wedding invitations and save-the-dates. There were so many more that I really loved, but I couldn't post them all. You can view them at Minted, though, where they're appropriately listed under EYE CANDY (click on wedding invitations or save the dates under category). Oh, and if you're feeling a bit creative, go ahead and put your own inspiration board together and enter the challenge! The Grand Prize is $1000 to spend on Minted! How awesome is that?!

Well, I hope you enjoyed these inspiration boards, and I hope they gave you some ideas for your own wedding! Happy planning!

xo, lori :)
