Win 50 letterpresses, foil pressed or wood invitations

win invitations blog banner We are so excited to introduce our brand spanking new printing options! We have loved providing party lovers and brides with invitations and event stationery design over the years, but we always felt like we were missing some of the fun as we often didn't get to see how our designs translated into print. So now we are very excited to be offering a full service with some pretty amazing printing options to suit various styles and budgets, including letterpress, foil press, digital printing and printing onto wood (yes, actual, real thinly cut pieces of wood)! Because we are so excited (let's see how many times I can squeeze that word into this post), we are running a pretty huge sale throughout October, as well as a great giveaway. So here it is... All printing orders made and paid for in October will receive a 30% discount. This applies to all printing orders. But wait, there's more... We are also running a competition, where one lucky person will win 50 specialty printed invitations (letterpress, foil press or wood). All printing orders made in October will automatically receive an entry, but you can also enter on Facebook or Instagram. Sweet Love Invitation 2 All this spring sunshine and printing has us feeling pretty excited (there it is again), and we hope we've passed some of that onto you with this sale and competition. All the t's and c's are below, and even though we're usually the type of people to skip over them, it's a good idea to have a quick read to make sure everything is nice and clear. Neverending Love Invitation - Display2 copy Use coupon code 'invitation love' and your 30% off will be applied at checkout. :) Sale details: Sale will run until midnight at the 31st October 2014. 30% discount applies only to printing and does not apply to any digital products or custom design work. Printing must be fully paid for by the end of sale date or the discount will not apply. Simply use coupon code 'invitationlove' to receive your 30% at checkout, or e-mail hello@uponatimedesigns to request an invoice. Competition Details: Competition will end at midnight EST on October 31st 2014. Printing orders made during this time will receive an automatic entry. Entries can be made via Facebook by sharing the competition image and commenting as directed. Entries can be made via Instagram by reposting a competition image and tagging as directed. Entrants may make one entry per platform, with the maximum of 3 entries each (one for printing order, one for Facebook entry and one for Instagram entry). Entrants will not be eligible for more than one entry per platform. The winner will be chosen within 48 hours of the competition end, at random. The winner will be notified of win via various platforms and will have 48 hours to contact us by e-mail to arrange their prize. If the winner does not make contact within 48 hours they will forfeit their win, and another winner will be chosen. Winner may choose from any of our existing designs suitable for specialty printing, or may choose to hire us to custom design a piece for them at their own cost. Postage within Australia is included in the prize. Worldwide entries are welcome, however international postage for the prize is not included so must be covered by the winner. Blog signature Emily

Free Printable Recipe Cards

RECIPE CARDS blog banner I'm not a big fan of cooking. I never LOVED it, but there were moments where I somewhat enjoyed it, that was before having kids. Now that I am responsible for feeding two little humans cooking just feels like a big, tedious, never ending chore. But I still love entertaining, and providing my guests with a large spread of yummy options. So cooking is still a big part of my life, so I may as well make it as enjoyable as possible, right? So whether, like me, cooking is a dutiful task or if you're one of those women I wish I could be more like who LOVES cooking up a storm for her family and friends, pulling out a handwritten recipe card just adds a touch of old time beauty to your cooking experience. Or am I being too romantic about it!? Haha! Either way, I love these free printable recipe cards, and I think some of you might too - because these are my number one downloaded freebie.
