For those of you who don’t know, I dabble in a little graphic design here and there. I designed all the graphics for my blog. I used to do a lot of graphic design work when we lived in California, but now I focus most of my creative energy into my photography. Every now and again, I get the chance to dust of my design skills and make something awesome.
I don’t have a lot of time to create graphics from scratch these days, but I had a general idea of what I was looking for. I searched Etsy and found both the graphics I needed as well as all the matching digital papers. I was able to whip up the rainbow party printables in one night. Remember the formula I used for calculating value in my “squeeze post“? Buying the graphics and papers were 500% worth it. Really.
This isn’t even everything. There are a total of 4 different tags/cupcake topper designs, a juice box cover, water bottle label, invitation, thank you cards, placemats, decor signs and food labels. If you follow the hastag #vturnsthree, you can sneak a little peek of what these goodies look like printed. Adorable!
Can’t wait to show you all the details put together after Vanessa’s party. I may or may not have a complete addiction to party printables. Anyone else completely obsessed with personalized paper goods for parties? I blame Pinterest.
