Family Proclamation Freebie

A couple weeks ago, the prophet of our church, President Russel M. Nelson, and his wife, Wendy, spoke in a youth fireside. In their messages, they encouraged us to take a break from social media. I decided to try it. I spent 7 days without going on social media. I found it relieving, and also easier than I expected. I think the main benefit was that I spent more time doing things that I actually love. I made more time for reading, handlettering, and design.

One of the things I made that I wanted to share with y’all was a print of the Family Proclamation. Someday we’ll finish painting and get around to hanging this up in our home. But in the meantime, it’s here for you to print and hang up at your convenience!

I couldn’t decide which one I liked better, so I made two versions: one script and one serif. There are also two sizes: 8.5″ x 11″ and 18″ x 24″.

Just click on these links below to print!

I can’t wait to print them and add a personal touch to my living room. Also, I’d love to hear your feedback! Comment and let me know which one you like better 🙂

Classic & Minimal Wedding Invitation

In order to keep costs down and make my wedding truly unique, I wanted to make as many things myself as possible. I studied graphic design in college, so I knew I could make my own wedding invitation.

Invitation Design

I wanted my invitations to be minimal, yet chic. I did not want to associate a color with my wedding, so I chose to print them on white. I went with Didot, a classic serif font, throughout the design. I thought about adding borders/embossing and things, but again, I wanted to keep it inexpensive and minimalistic. Even though my final design looks simple, it actually took a lot of tweaking to get the sizing and spacing right. That’s one of my favorite things about designing.

Print & Mail

We used a family friend of ours at Allegra Marketing & Print to print the invitations and pictures. To add a touch of texture, we tied a silk belly band around the invite. This also helped secure the picture. My mom and I printed labels and did all the packaging and mailing. I wish I could have hand lettered all the envelopes, but that would have been a little too crazy to get done in a week.

Overall, I am very pleased with how they turned out! This was one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning. If you or a friend need a card design, let me know! I would love to design something for you. Christmas is around the corner and I have been aching to do some Christmas card designs! Head over to my Instagram to see some of my hand-lettering samples.
