ALT cards (mine + more)

alt design summit business card roundup5Hello friends.

I am home again. After my week in SLC at Alt Summit, and a few days of catching up on sleep, email, and restocking the fridge, it is good to be back.

I have a little re-cap, or more of a hodgepodge, of my favorite Alt insights I’ve been jotting down. But I thought I’d start by sharing a fun detail, a peek at a few business cards,

mine + a few I came home with me in return.

I left my business card-making (and wardrobe planning!) to the last minute, for a good reason. So I was thrilled when everything pulled together in the end.

Then I chopped up about a zillion chocolate bar samples and wrapped them up in pretty gold liners.

I love this stamp and stamp it on everything all of the time, so it went on my cards. I sent it off to my printer and got the final pieces back.

I have to say that for someone who loves inspirational classes and furious note taking, my favorite part of Alt was meeting a zillion new people. It was incredible to me to get to say hello to the real-life artists and bloggers and shop owners driving the blogs and shops I adore. Here’s just a peek at a few cards in the stash I got to bring home.

What a wonderful idea adding chocolate to your cards. That would definitely make you stand out in my book!
