My Stationery Must Haves featuring Minted

I am a sucker for beautiful stationery. Whether it be art pieces for my wall or note cards to keep in touch with friends and family, I absolutely love it. The other day I stumbled upon Minted, an online stationery store that features the work of independent artists. The more I browsed through their website, the more I fell in love. So many types of products, with so many stunning works of art and designs. I thought I would share with you some of my favorite finds on Minted.com, and products that I gotta have! I have gone through and chosen my absolute favorite product from each of their sections: Holiday, Gifts, Weddings, Baby & Kids, Paperie, and Party Decor. Minted offers so many wonderful stationery products it was almost impossible to pick just 1 for each category, but I somehow managed!

:HOLIDAY:
Christmas is over now, and the next big holiday I'm looking forward to is Valentines Day. I took a peek through their Valentines Day cards, and I found so many that I wanted, but my favorite is the Confetti Valentines Day Postcard. I like all of the spaces available to share photos, and the colors compliment each other so well.


:GIFTS:
Okay, this section took me forever to pick out my favorite, but I finally found the one that represented me, and is something that I would love to have hanging in my home. It is the Maine Love Location map gift. If you don't already know, I am a born and raised Mainer, and Maine will forever have a big piece of my heart no matter where I go. Being able to take sentimental photos of mine, and have them pieced together to create my home state is truly amazing. Below is a sample of the piece unframed, however Minted offers a beautiful selection of frames in various styles.
 :WEDDINGS:
Alright, let's pretend that I am getting married! Ooo this is getting fun! With that big day coming, I'm going to need to invite some guests! I want to have my invitations set the tone for my wedding... classic, elegant, but still simple. This Winter Flourish Wedding Invitation would be perfect! It has a beautiful pop of color, but not too over the top. The fonts are stunning, but yet still easily able to be read. And because I'm such the busy bride to be, I can easily order matching rsvp cards, direction cards, thank you cards and more all right on Minted!


:BABY & KIDS:
Well, the wedding is over and now I have a beautiful baby to announce to the world! I know that I will want to share as many cute photos with my friends and family, so this Dearest Birth Announcement allows me to share a few photos, along with the babys name, birthdate, time of birth, and birth weight. Beautiful baby colors to choose from, so you're not just stuck with the classic pink or blue.


:PAPERIE:
This section also took me a while to pick out a favorite. But I went with something that I could use, and would help me pass along the word of my blog, business cards. However I believe business cards should stand out, and be eye catching. To do this I chose the Chic Black and Gold Foil-Pressed Business Cards. They stand out without being too over the top, or looking cheesy. The foil glistens and catches the light, which draws in attention to the card, and my information.


:PARTY DECOR:
Alright, best for last. When I was checking out this section, I immediately found something that I thought was so cool, and had to check out. With social media being all the rage, and everyone taking their own photos at every event, why not have your very own photo backdrop? Whether you are having a party and want a place for your guests to take photos, or if you are taking your own photos at home and want to add a bit of a professional touch to them, this is exactly what you need! A Season for Stripes photo backdrop features a beautiful holiday pattern, along with Happy Holidays written at the top. This is something I need for next years Christmas cards for sure. I could take my photos in front of this backdrop, print them, and be done. No editing needed, no adding backgrounds or text. Everything I'd need is right there. Plus if I have a holiday party, my guests could use it as a backdrop for their own photos to share on social media! As always Minted offers a complete matching set of party items, so you can get everything you need.


Finally while you are at Minted, check out their Art Marketplace. You can find beautiful pieces of artwork, by very talented artists from all over the world. One of my favorites is Blush by Sonal Nathwani from Vienna, Austria.



Minted offers so many types of products, it honestly took me hours to go over all of their items, and pick out my favorites. I found so many things that I fell in love with, many of which I didn't get to share with you on here, but I just wanted to give you a brief overview of what Minted offers. Head over to their website and find your favorites!
