And just like that, August is gone! What a busy month it’s been with the summer winding down and back to school beginning. But I still had plenty of time for some of my favorite things!
CARDS FROM MIXBOOK
Back in the spring, I found a company called Mixbook on Instagram. You can create photo books, cards, calendars and more on their site. They offer already created designs (like the ones pictured here) or you can design your own with your own photos, lettering & images. How cool is that?!
How cute is this cactus card?! And my favorite thing about Mixbook cards- Tombow pens work great on them!
The patterns and designs are beautiful and on trend. The paper quality is outstanding and I will definitely be sending these cards out to my friends and family. And I’m proud to say that I’m in the process of designing cards for them! Be on lookout for the reveal of my designs soon!

I love Denik notebooks for several reasons. First of all, they have an amazing cause. They donate a portion of their proceeds from every item sold to helping to build schools and to support the designer of the cover art. Supporting schools and artists? Now that’s a cause I can get behind.
Their lay flat notebooks are my favorite! They are perfect for lettering because you don’t have to keep pushing the one side down every time you want to write. Not to mention, the pages stay down when you wanna take a photo of your work! The paper is smooth and the bindings are really durable.

She covers everything from the basics, to different styles & techniques to inspirational lettering ideas. It’s jammed full of fantastic information.
