I am so excited about today’s giveaway, a $150 gift certificate to use any way you wish at one of my favorite sites, Minted. As you know, Minted is a San Francisco-based company that offers the best stationery & gift products crowd-sourced from talented independent designers. Minted has outdone itself this holiday season with the most superb new holiday cards….
….plus some fantastic new entries in its Wall Art category like the spot-it-everywhere Heart Snapshot Mix™ Art (starting at $29) which you’ll see popping up on many design blogs and Pinterest. It’s a great way to use your favorite Instagram photos and create a quick, easy, personalized gift.
Also, one of my favorite new products this season is Minted’s Personalized Wrapping Paper. I’ve searched for paper like this before but have found few options (and the ones I found were quite pricey). But Minted has made its new wrapping both totally creative (you can use your own photos, or keep photo-less, and you can change text, greetings, colors, and fonts) and very affordable (just $15 for 5 full 20 x 28″ sheets). I got to try out a sample of the Krafted Frames Personalized Wrapping Paper, shown in red below (I also recommend you check out the lovely On the Grid Personalized Wrapping Paper or the photo-less Chalkboard Monogram Wrapping Paper):
The red was a little too Christmas-y for my taste, so I created this version in beige instead (want a photo tip? Use the “outtakes” from your holiday cards that didn’t make the final cut…that’s how I created this one. Plus it gives a unified look to the entire design).
Here is our finished product (yes, I am already wrapping holiday gifts…Hanukkah is just one week away):
