Lily & Val For Mixbook

When Mixbook and Brit + Co asked me to teach this class, I was thrilled for many reasons. First, you guys know how much I love using and working with Mixbook! My first collaboration with them was a series of photo cards this past holiday season and then last month we released L&V for Mixbook Custom Wedding Photo Books!  Their quality plus the ease of use of their design tools is truly wonderful.

How I Use My iPad Pro

Secondly, I’m excited about this class because we’ll be using the iPad Pro! If you guys have been following along with me recently, you’ll know I’ve developed quite a love for the Procreate app.

I’ll be the first to admit, I was apprehensive to use a digital drawing tool (I am used to chalk and chalkboard, after all) BUT the iPad and apple pencil feel so close to drawing with pen and paper. Although nothing will fully replace the real thing, you can’t beat these tools for drawing when digitizing is required of your lettering. Digitizing my hand lettering has always been somewhat of a struggle for me and extremely time-consuming. The iPad Pro solves all of this and saves you a ton of time! It’s totally worth it.

You Really Can Design Your Own Wedding Invitations

If you’ve been thinking about designing your own wedding invitation suite from scratch, but aren’t sure exactly where or how to get started, this class is for you!

I’m going to show you how starting with the basics, like finding your inspiration and how to develop a color palette for your wedding invites. I’ll teach you how to hand-draw loose florals (my favorite) and then we’ll put it all together on Mixbook!

You don’t have to be a graphic designer or a seasoned pro. Your wedding invites (and coordinated pieces) will all look professional and, the best part, completely unique to you!
