Paper_girl has loved art as long as she can remember. When she was young, her parents and art teachers were often impressed by the amount of details she put into her artwork. While most kids were drawing a rainbow or a doodle of a sun, Paper_girl was sketching countryside wineries or a 3D view of her bedroom.
I feel very lucky to have found what I love to do at such a young age. I found Zazzle 4 years ago when I was looking for an outlet to showcase my designs. Since then, I opened two Zazzle stores that are both very successful, Paper Girl Stationery Shop and Paper Girl’s Wedding Boutique.
Everything that I see inspires me. Once, I went to a wedding and fell in love with the bride’s dress. I decided to draw it for this Couture Gown bridal shower invitation. I do what I do because I love designing more than anything else. It’s my true passion and I feel very blessed to be able to do what I love.
My style is funky, modern, colorful and full of personality. Here are some of my favorite products:
Bring A Book Baby Shower Invitation
Both of my kids love books and have read on their own since they were 4 years old. It inspired me to create Bring A Book baby shower invites to help new moms introduce a love of reading to their babies.
So Proud Graduation Invitation
I remember the graduation announcements that my school offered for purchase. I couldn’t pick one since they were not me at all! Each grad has their own style and I wanted to offer them options, whether their style is simple and modern, funky and colorful, or vintage and unique.
Stylish Starfish Wedding Invitation
I love beach weddings! I didn’t get married on the beach, but if I did, this is what my invitation would look like: modern and elegant with the perfect coral and ocean water color schemes.
Cocktail Glasses Bachelorette Party or Bridal Shower Invitation
Planning a wedding can be stressful and brides-to-be deserve a fun night out with friends. This idea inspired me to design this particular invitation.
Ice Cream Sunday Birthday Invitation
This was inspired by an ice cream party that I threw for the neighborhood kids a few summers ago. The party was a big hit!
Modern Band Save The Date Postcard
Sending out save-the-dates is more important that most people think. I’m glad I sent out mine since most of my relatives live far away and they told me the save the dates helped them make early travel arrangements and save money!
Favorite monsters Michael “Mike” Wazowski, James P. Sullivan (Sulley), Randall Boggs and Jeff Fungus are back in Pixar’s Monsters University, opening June 21.
Set about ten years before the events of Monsters, Inc., 17-year-old Wazowski is excited to start college, but things don’t go quite as he planned.
Fans of Monsters, Inc. waiting for the movie to be released can find their favorite posters, notebooks, laptop sleeves and more on Zazzle now.
With Earth Day this past Monday and Arbor Day coming up on Friday, we’re in a “green” mood. For everyone who enjoys a good dig in the dirt, here are some of our top picks for gardeners with green thumbs:
Garden Cake Toppers
These toppers are not just for your birthday cake. It’s also a creative way to help organize your garden:
Oh, the mighty succulent. These plants are hardy and almost impossible to kill — a good choice for aspiring gardeners without a successful “track record.”
Long hours in the dirt call for more than just sunscreen. Protect your face with this cool, pun-ny hat:
Love flowers? Keep these vintage beauties in your home long after your blooms outside have withered.
And for all the garden lovers who just want a good laugh:
The weather is warming up, and if you’re a nature lover you’re probably craving a good hiking or camping trip.
For all the path-exploring, adventure-loving, trail mix-eating ones out there, here are some Zazzle picks to outfit you for the great outdoors:
Birds Water Bottle:
“I’d Rather Be Hiking” Pullover:
It’s Earth Day and the holiday has come a long way since its beginnings as a grassroots demonstration exactly 43 years ago. While a common way to celebrate is to plant new trees, Earth Day Network (EDN) (the organizers of Earth Day rallies and activities) have focused on a larger environmental issue and themed this Earth Day: “The Face of Climate Change.”
Whether you’re lending your efforts to widescale environmental issues or giving your time to a local neighborhood cleanup, Zazzle has eco-themed, Earth Day swag to help bring awareness to this important day:
In addition, get inspired with these beautiful shots of volcanoes and redwood forests from our Getty Images collection:
As a bonus, check out some outtakes from our Earth Day photoshoot. If you love any of the products used in these shots, they are below:
In the spirit of tongue-in-cheek showings of love, we present some of our favorite LOL Mother’s Day gifts.
First, let’s be honest, children can be a headache. Remember your cuts, colds, stains, snot, very long recitals and many after-school activities? Yeah, you owe her. You can start with a Retro Mother’s Day Card that’s totally true:
For her many cups of coffee or tea throughout the day, remind her of all the times she saved you and took care of you — perhaps even more than needed. Give her the Original Seatbelt Mom mug:
And for a smug show of pride that she can carry everywhere, there’s the Keep Calm Call Mom iPhone case:
This post is the last one in our heartfelt Mother’s Day series. We hope you’ve found it helpful, and we hope you embrace this Mother’s Day as much as we will.
