Inspiration Board Challenge - March

We've moved to - you'll be redirected to this post in a moment.

I'm so happy to have Janelle and Samone of Cake Ink as our next participants for the inspiration board challenge.  And here is a few reasons why:

1.  They are super awesome.  I mean, a cake creator (Janelle) and graphic designer (Samone) duo.  To me, that is what my powers would be if I was a super hero.  And just look at that cake above!  The absolute perfect mix of cool, creative and stylish.  Janelle can rest assured that one day, when I turn up in Melbourne, I will be ordering a cake from her.

2.  Their use of color makes me giggle with happiness.  Take the girly pirate party above.  How absolutely sweet are those colors but the graphic design keeps it edgy.  I like to think that if I had a little girl that all her parties would look like this one.

3.  THE DETAILS.  Samone starts with the normal invites, adds amazing graphic elements and then adds on the most adorable tags, silverware wraps, cupcake flags, etc.  And check out that garland!  I know that they will create a fantastic inspiration board based on the item I chose for them! 

The item that I chose for this month is a children's t-shirt design from Boscoe 79.  My friend, Beki, sent me a link to this company because she knows that I am a sucker for well designed kid's attire.  These shirt graphics are totally cool.  The company is run by a husband and wife team, Cody and Jennifer, and I think they are amazing.  One of the coolest things about this company is that for each shirt you buy, one is donated to a child in need.  So great!

I will let Cake Ink decide if they want to use the boys or girls version of the record player for their board.      I love them both.  These are totally shirts that I will buy as gifts for friends and family.

You simply must go check out their site and read their story!  After emailing with Jennifer I learned that our families have tons of stuff in common, including our oldest kid's sharing a birthday and our husbands working for the same company but at separate times.  I am so glad to share this awesome company with all of you.  Please let them know how awesome their designs are! 

Wishing all of you a very fantastic March!
