A light & humorous holiday card

It's always nice to meet new, fun & super nice people when I get a new client to create holiday cards for. Well, I was lucky enough to meet someone who hopefully I'll remain friends with in the future.

I loved her idea for these cards... very light & humorous! Makes my holiday card portfolio that much more interesting!

Thanks "S" family!

Christmas card time is coming!

Have you even started thinking about Christmas yet?

Well... I have. Partly because I have to get everything done about a month early because our little one is due around the beginning to middle of December. So, yes, I'll be busy... probably from here on out.

That said, if you are interested in Christmas cards, you need to place them early. I'm working on some traditional, photo, non-photo & contemporary cards.

The BEST team so far!

What an amazing team! It makes me emotional to look at this picture. It's such a chaotic day trying to get everyone together and organized for this event. But wow is it worth it and look at all of these beautiful faces all there for one person & one cause.

We love you mom & we are all so proud of you!

I love the Race For The Cure and this year I was tasked at designing a t-shirt for my mom's team. This is our 4th year walking for my mom who is a breast cancer survivor.

I can't wait for Sunday and I'm honored to walk with my mom. She is my hero & inspiration!

Updates & wedding invitation designs

First off, I'm sorry for not blogging in over 2 months. Things have drastically changed in my life. I switched departments at my workplace which has been a true blessing. Less responsibility, less hours, less stress and more sleep!

I've also picked up a new job from home designing websites. It is great, great, great! But, it does mean less time doing this job - a job that I truly love.

These cards are from May but I wanted to share because I thought they were fun. And it was so fun to do them for an old friend.

Meet beautiful little Jocelyn... kristi young design


It was with the greatest pleasure to create a birth announcement for this beautiful family. These parents are amazing and have been blessed with quite an amazing little girl. When I went to visit, she was already smiling and cooing.

She really is such a beautiful miracle.

and... the fabulous photos were taken by Sarah J Photography.

Meet precious little Jake... kristi young design

Look at this precious little baby boy! I was so excited to create an announcement for my great client and friend. The pictures are so great and this little boy is so beautiful.

My inspiration for this card comes from her curtains that her mom made for the nursery. I loved the green and blue striped pattern.

I hope they enjoy these announcements as well as these precious early days with their new son.

Happy Birthday my friend!

Refreshed from a great vacation

I just got back from a fabulous 10 days in Florida. I had a great time. Ethan was thrilled to be outside all day - everyday, playing at the beach and swimming in the pool. That's mostly what we did everyday, and it was wonderful. Because Ethan was so entertained by the beach & the pool, I got to put my feet up and relax.

It was also great to spend time with my husband and his family. Ethan couldn't get enough of his cousins, Paige & Bailey. And I also think they enjoyed spending time with him.

Now that I'm refreshed, I'll be updating the blog soon with more birth announcements, some custom stationery, and photo book templates.

And... it's not too early to start thinking about Christmas. I will be working on some new Christmas card designs for 2010.

Birth announcements... kristi young design

I've been working diligently on some new birth announcements. I have three wonderful clients that are due within the next month. Wouldn't want to put their announcement on the blog, because obviously it's their job to send them out.

So... here is just a little preview of some design elements I've been working on that will be included on the announcements. After they've sent them out, I'll be glad to share them.

Save the date cards...kristi young design

I'm thrilled to be busy working on 2 weddings. (save the date cards, invitations, table numbers, programs, rsvp cards etc.) I can't wait to see this particular wedding line printed. I love the elegance & colors. (My client had a particular design in mind, so this was inspired by another design)

A tri-fold birthday card... kristi young design

What I love about this card is how it showcases beautiful photos from when Stella was first born and how adorable she is now. And... I just love tri-fold cards. They are unique and there is a lot of space. Hope you love them!

Adorable, hand-crocheted little critters..... Kristi Young Design

I can't say enough about these adorable little animals..... crocheted by my SUPER talented mother. I think she should open a little shop selling these and other great hand-made gifts, but her hands get tired after a lot of work.

She is currently working on other animals including: an octopus, a walrus, a gingerbread man, a teddy bear, a seal, a monkey, a giraffe, and many others. I want one of each!

I think I'm going to make a card set that has pictures of the animals on the front.

They're going fast.

Look at these amazing pictures that Julie, from Julie Marie Portraits took of the everyday card set.

They're going fast and I only have a few left. Keep these cards in mind for Mother's day gifts, birthday gifts and such.

Also... I want to thank my amazing friend Sarah for taking the pictures on the cards and my amazing mom who created the beautiful packaging for the card set. They are both so talented.

Email nyoung@bex.net for a special introductory price.

Julie's beautiful nursery

I'm sooo excited.

My friend & loyal customer Julie from Julie Marie Portraits used the logo that I created for her photography business in her nursery. (Above the crib) Her and her mom & sister traced & painted it onto 9 12x12 canvases.

What a great idea! and I think the entire nursery is absolutely beautiful!

And..... they featured her room on Spearmint Baby.

Happy almost February:)

I'm so glad she is happy with them! There are more images on her blog. Check it out at www.juliemariepix.blogspot.com.

Logo design for Julie Marie Portraits

Here are two of the concepts I designed for Julie Marie Portraits. She wanted to keep her current light blue color which I think is very modern & fresh.

I created 3 different logo proposals for her & she couldn't decide so she picked the one and then is going to use the dog (part of another logo I designed) for other marketing materials.

Brochure design for Inspired Image Video

If you are ever in need of a videographer, call Ken or visit his website at www.inspiredimagevideo.com. He does amazing work. I was happy when he asked me to create a brochure for him for the bridal show that took place over the weekend.

With the help of amazing photos by Sarah J Photography, I think it turned out good:)

Everyday cards that everyone needs

Isn't there always a time you need a birthday, get well, in sympathy, or thinking of you card at the last minute? And you don't really want to go to the store and buy one for $3 or more.... O.k. my latest project is a set of cards that comes with 25 cards (5 each of 5 different subjects).

The cards will be simple but current & fashionable. Most of the cards will feature photos taken by a friend that has an amazing, simple & artsy style.

Let me know what you guys think.

The big ten!

I can't believe it. This little girl is 10 already. I remember when I first started dating Nate, I met her parents... and Jill was pregnant with Paige. Hard to believe it's been 10 years. She is growing up to be quite a remarkable girl. I thought this card fit her personality.. young & fun! and she loves lime green:)

2009 Ethan's highlights

Here is a little preview of the slideshow I'll play at Ethan's birthday party. It includes his first steps, first words, first vacations, and more. I cut it off after a minute or so, I don't think blogspot could handle a 20 minute video:) plus I think you would get bored. Resolution may be a little rough, I had to really compress it!

Anyways... I think this will be a priceless gift... 20 years from now!
