Buttons for Amy Sue

I've had such a fun time working with Amy Sue over the past year!

She wanted a web button to match her Blog theme and help it be recognizable.

Yes, the first two are very similar. I finished the one on the right and then my youngest said that the rainbow NEEDED green in it - lol! So I changed the rainbow stripe and the color of the flower to add the orange back in.

Here are a few mock-ups:

Logo Re-Design for Bukawww!

I worked with Liana two years ago to design her site and loved how it turned out!

She's re-focusing her business and wanted a modified logo to match the more mature look she's going for.

She wanted her chicken a bit more grown-up/less cartoon-ish, but not changed too much. With maybe a little chicken wife and a baby chicken hatching from an egg.

Here's my interpretation of her thoughts (click image to view larger):

Wedding Album Design for Tim & Emilie

This was commissioned by CBG Photography for Tim & Emilie.

They wanted a 32 page album, with a mixture of scenery backgrounds from their wedding and solid light purple to match their wedding colors. They gave me a list of pictures to include and CBG Photography gave me their picture CDs and I went from there.

Their pictures are just gorgeous and I loved working with them to create what I hope will be the perfect fairytale wedding album for them.

Animated Banners for "Creative Mamas" - March Madness

Our theme this month is "March Madness". Maybe it's because I grew up with a sports-loving father, but that term always reminds me of basketball!

I thought it would be fun to incorporate a bouncing basketball and fire/flames into our animated banners this month.


New Guest Vendors for "Creative Mamas"

We're excited to welcome the following guests for March!
