Looking Back: A Note of Grace + A Year of Free Monthly Downloads

I always think it is interesting to see where ideas take you, and how they change from something that you began to do, to see how it can morph and grow into something completely different than originally intended.

A little over a year ago, I designed a Bridal Shower invitation for a bride that I loved so much that I decided to turn it into a free digital download set for phones and desktops as well.   A few months in, I also began designing a scripture version to go with it. Once I started this, I gave myself the challenge to stick to it for a year and see where it took me, leaving it open-ended as to where it would be a year from then.   I have loved doing this for the last year, it has definitely been something that has taught me more about myself as a designer as well, while it unexpectedly encouraging me to continue to grow my faith!  Looking back, it was amazing to see which designs seemed to be the most popular and which ones I loved to design the most.  I loved putting together this collection below to see them all in one place.

Pairing bold and soft hues together is one of my favorites to do ... just wait until you see what's in store for the holidays! :)
