Notepads + Frameable Cards, Oh My!

frameable cards

You may have seen the sneak peeks throughout the last few weeks, but today is the day. I am so excited to announce the launch of our NEW products: notepads + frameable cards. I'm a paper lover at heart, and I love sending handmade (and hand lettered) gifts! One of my favorite little snail mail goodies I send are inspiration quotes + sayings. Others liked this service, so the idea of offering a "frameable" card was born. How nice would it be to mail a friend a little pick me up that they can frame or pin to their bulletin board as a reminder? Well now you can! Each card is 5x7 and comes with a small little notecard for you to write your message on instead of the print. Sign, seal and mail for someone to receive a little happy in their mailbox! 

And then there are the notepads! You can never have too many notepads, am I right? And they make great little hostess + teacher gifts! All notepads are printed in black and white with a fun hand lettered saying! Choose from dream big, just sayin, XOXO, groceries, and everyone's favorite get sh#t done. Add a pen from our supply shop and you have a great little package!

Valentine's Day Free Printables!

It's that time of year again. Time to send some love notes, wrap up some special treats, and show those around you how much you love them! My kids love this holiday as much as I do, so they played a big party in helping me design some special cards for their friends. I encouraged a valentine that didn't involve candy and instead crayons. They each had a vision and I took it to the drawing board. See what you think of our "Will you BEE my Valentine?" and "I AM your Valentine!".

Both can be packaged with a little shred and some crayons (or Burt's Bees Lip Balm).

And I thought I would share the love with all of you with a FREE valentine card printable! Click on the links below for either theme:

Cupid, Cards, + Cocktails {A Valentine's Day Workshop}


What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a champagne cocktail in one hand, a cupcake by your side, and a butcher-paper-lined table filled with craft supplies? 

Last Thursday marked our first seasonal workshop here at Design Roots! We hosted a group of excited ladies for a V-day inspired class where they created greeting cards using Design Roots stamps along with an abundance of paper goodies and stickers provided by one of our favorite supply companies, Thatch & Thistle. 

Each student left with all of their card designs along with a Design Roots love stamp, which can be found in the shop.

Check out some of the card creations below along with additional shots from the evening!


A huge thank you to Thatch & Thistle and Sugar Ray's Bakeshop, which recently opened dangerously close to us in Plano, TX. They provided red velvet latte and vanilla bean mini cupcakes and we may or may not have lost count of how many we consumed!


And now, the craftermath...


If you're thinking, "ohmygoodness this looked like so much fun, how did I miss it?!" don't fret because we will continue to add seasonal workshops to the mix, so be sure to check the classes + events tab frequently!
