Sugar Wood :: Blog and Shop


I love all of our clients, but when my client starts out as a friend (and a dear friend at that) it makes it even better!!

This is Chana. She is one of the most beautiful souls I know. Her compassion and love for the world is unmatched. Additionally, she is a baker that is known for her caramel crack.IJU_6420Isn’t her family adorable? They are so sweet.

Anyway, back to the crack.IMG_7588 Kristen Carter Photography Sugar WoodThis is the deliciousness that she makes. It tastes just as good as it looks, I promise.

She offers two varieties right now, her sea salt topped caramel shortbread:3And the heavenly sea salt topped caramel bites: IMG_9997-10And not only have I had the honor to design her website and shop, but I also designed her boxes for her.SugarWoodBox8

I’m always proud of my work, but knowing that something I designed is being shipped all over the world and in shops too? There is definitely something special about that!

Linky Love :: Stuck On You


Have you heard of Moo?

They are a printing company based out of the UK that has some pretty great options. Their business cards are famous because of the ability to have different images on the back of each card which allows you to carry your portfolio with you.

In addition to their business cards, they also have a variety of other products including stickers.

In my Reader today (I love Google Reader….do you use it?) I was notified of their sale on stickers!

How creative is this? It’s a sticker business card that they put on wood! These would look great on the back of canvases or prints that you sell or on creative bookmarks or maybe used to finish up your packaging! The options are endless!

Do you need new business cards and do you want an option for some awesome looking stickers to go with your branding? Use the code STICKYCARD when checking out and you can have a package of Rectangle stickers for half off!

Or even better! Do you currently have Moo cards? I’d love to see what you have created! Share with us on the blog or on Facebook!

Tuesday Tip :: Branding Magic


Have any of you played that Logo Identification game out there? There are a variety of types with the basic premise being the ability to recognize a company without the name. Who doesn’t immediately know what the big red circle within a circle is (Target, anyone)? The Nike swoosh, the Apple apple. All of these icons and font styles immediately bring to mind the company they identify and the products or services they provide. The G of Gucci and the C’s of Coach just scream luxury while the yellow smiley face of Wal*Mart let you know you are in for a discount.

What does your logo say about you? More importantly, does your logo work with your brand?

It’s so important to make sure that everything your brand touches, whether it be your business card, your website, your packaging, your emails, even how you answer the phone all are incorporated together.

The easiest way to create a cohesive brand is to work with a branding specialist. Someone who knows what they are doing, can work with you to narrow down exactly what you want to portray and make sure everything is exactly what it needs to look like.

One of my favorite branding gurus is Kristina Kathrynn Photography and Design. She works strictly with photographers, since she is one as well, she knows what she is doing! Her designs are unique to each customer so you will get something fresh and specific just to you, as opposed to a tweak of a current design. Not only are her designs gorgeous, but she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet! I had the pleasure of meeting up with her in Vegas at WPPI this past year and, after learning she was in my area (Pacific Northwest represent!) we have gotten together a couple times.

When she asked me if I would want to help with a contest she was putting on, what else could I do but scream YES!?!

So, go here and check out the rules and instructions. It’s a giveaway unlike any other you’ve seen. You have an opportunity to get a complete branding makeover just by using Pinterest (who doesn’t love Pinning for a Purpose?) and creating a board with a branding inspiration. Best of all, even if you don’t win, you’ll have created a board full of inspiration and ideas to help you streamline your brand.

Pretty Products :: Besotted Brand


I’ve spent the last few weeks wrapping up my packaging for my photography business. The timing was perfect for me, because a dear friend Miss B opened up her shop. I’ve loved her blog for years and been waiting for her style to be shared with the world!  I may or may not have ordered a lot of products from her……

Wanna see?

I just knew her packaging would be lovely. And I was not wrong!


And the items in the box were even better!

I got a box of letter stamps.

And some amazing flourishes and a thank you stamp. With some tiny clothespins too!

And most importantly….a custom stamp. It’s amazing!

I love it!

Thanks, Miss B (or Mrs. B now!) for the amazing supplies! I cannot wait to use all of them.

What have you gotten recently for your packaging that you have loved? Post pictures! I love packaging!
