4 reasons why I love my new artful TV

My new TV looks just like a painting!

I’m not necessarily an “electronics” person. In fact, I didn’t have a TV for all of my twenties. However, you’d never know it now with the level of enthusiasm I have when I speak about my new TV. It’s by Samsung and it’s called The Frame and I’m very openly and unabashedly in love with it. Yes, this is TOTALLY a sponsored post, but really, I can’t even express how passionate I am about this piece of technology. I wish you could just come on over and I’d take you through it (stay tuned! I will on InstaStories!). In fact, we sold our previous TV a few days ago and the guy asked why we are selling it… “Because, take a look at this!” and I proceeded to spend 10 minutes telling him how awesome it is. Somehow he still ended up buying our 4 year old used TV. There are the four reasons I love my TV so much.My new TV looks just like a painting! Read on →

This Girl: Giant Paper Sequin Background

Giant Paper Sequin Background Sometimes you come across an image that you just can’t seem to get out of your mind. Such was the case with this photo. Can a dress be any more perfect? I would argue, no, it cannot. But, since I’m assuming that perfect sequin frock would cost my whole life savings, I knew I needed to come up with a different interpretation of it. Insert: the Giant Paper Sequin Background! The perfect party backdrop for a girl who loves her sparkles. All you need for this easy DIY is glitter paper in a variety of colors, some straws and a pair of scissors. This project is ideal for a group, so get your girlfriends together, turn on the Bachelorette, and cut out circles! Sequins have never looked better.

envelope linersAfter dipping our toes into some wedding planning, we can’t seem to get enough! Invitations are often the first impression of a couple’s upcoming nuptials and set the tone for what to expect at their wedding. This might seem like a lot of pressure, but it’s the perfect opportunity to get your vision across! Artifact Uprising just released their new wedding invitation line and it is beautifully simple and modern. There are so many wedding invitations out there on the market right now, and it can be hard to narrow it down. It’s hard to stray from too-trendy designs. The no-frills designs of Artifact Uprising make for classic invitations that can be customized with 15 different designs to ensure there’s an option for every couple out there!

Want to customize your invites even more? Staying true to our Lars’ aesthetic, we wanted to add a bit of art to our invitations with some painterly envelope liners. We love the color and texture the envelopes add to the timeless invitation. So if you’re in the market for some wedding invitations, make sure to check out Artifact Uprising and download our printable envelope liners! It makes opening an envelope much more fun.

DIY Summer Flower Garland

DIY summer flower garland

Guys, this week is full of exciting announcements! We’re kicking off with this garland inspired by our products designed for Alexis Mattox Design. The grand reveal of all our party products for AMD will be on Wednesday, so stay tuned! The florals we used were so fun and poppy that we needed to make a garland inspired by the wrapping. This is the perfect decoration for all your summer soirees, and pretty enough to keep up all summer long! Made with crepe paper and cardstock, it’s a great project to work on with friends or spread out over a few days. Summer days are meant for crafting, am I right?

In other news, this garland also goes perfectly with our new line of Chatbooks! Next week, all six of our designs will be available during the Chatbooks summer sale! You’ll see covers using the three patterns from our wrapping paper, as well as three new corresponding ones! We can’t reveal all the fun yet, but make sure you get your pictures ready so you can cash in on some sweet deals next week over at Chatbooks! These patterns will only be available for a limited time, so don’t dilly dally. DIY summer flower garland
