Sweet Summer Collection

sweet-summer-collection

Ah, summer. Our time with it is short (especially here in Canada) but we can count on it to bring patio parties, weekend beach get-togethers, and BBQs with the neighbours we see so rarely in the winter months.

Let’s celebrate summer and what better way than with a line of hot, colourful, and sweet stationery to take with you on summer roadtrips, get-togethers, and parties.

Bright pink was a big inspiration for this line and when it was paired with bright blues, yellows, and oranges, it made for a fun, summer collection. There is nothing more summer (for me at least) then backyard parties where we get to don our coolest threads and join our friends to celebrate just the fact that it’s a beautiful day.

And how about some lemonade? The summer sun sits in the sky making us crave some fruity drinks and fresh produce beside the pool. These cards are pool party ready so why not send a few to your busy friends inviting them for some poolside drinks.

I love a road-trip. I love to watch the scenery as we drive through plains and mountains. But, sometimes, you need an activity to keep you busy in the car so I created a series of sweet postcards you can colour yourself. I thought it would be kind of fun to write a few memories on the back of where you were when colouring it and add it to your scrapbook when you return home. Not going on a long trip this season? Bring this along while you relax on the beach or sit in the shade of an old oak in the park.

This collection was really fun to create and I hope you will enjoy it too. I wish you all a Sweet Summer.

It’s Official!

*UPDATE* Great News! AMTaylorART is now fully operational. Canada Post has said they will not halt operations which means I can now confidently ship worldwide (including Canada).

It’s official! My shop is now reopened and is full of great new products, perfect for summer. Head on over to my Etsy shop and check it out!

My Sweet Summer Collection is all about bright colours, hot trends, and the sweetness of summer. Fruity greeting card designs, road trip worthy activity kits, and inspirational quotes fill our virtual shelves this season at AMTaylorART.

We have had an exciting summer so far. With the announcement that Canada Post might strike (my only means of shipping) what was a business-girl to do. Throw a party of course. I hope you were able to snag your freebie. If not don’t worry there will be more to come.

I was also given the opportunity to apply to Etsy’s wholesale marketplace and pounced on the idea, jumping in head first. I would love to have my designs in stores across Canada and the USA. Not only that but I entered my shop into the running to pitch my line to major retailers in New York City. They are picking some up-and-coming designers to come to NYC for a two-day workshop and trade show at the end of the summer. Fingers-crossed! (Are you a store owner interested in learning more?
