March 2015 Visiting Teaching Printable

I get so much out of the Visiting Teaching message (link to full message here) when I am studying it and trying to decide how to design a printable.  I love thinking about what words to emphasize, the feeling I want it to have, and how to make it beautiful.

I especially loved the wonderful quote from President Uchtdorf about patience and some of the Christ-like attributes he described.

Thanks for sharing this!  (link to 2-to-a-page here)

February 2015 Visiting Teaching Handout

This month, the Visiting Teaching message is about The Attributes of Jesus Christ: Without Sin.  (this link will take you to the full message on LDS.org)

The main part that stood out to me was the quote from Elder Christofferson about how our Savior, Jesus Christ, UNDERSTANDS.  He knows us, He understands our deepest struggles, and also our daily struggles that may not be so big.  He LOVES us, and because of His sacrifice and Atonement, he can help us WIN the struggle.

I have such a deep and tender love for my elder brother, Jesus Christ, and I know that He is there to help us through these things.  I have felt His love and peace in my life.  Sometimes (often) I forget to turn to Him, but when I finally do, I feel His understanding.

The past month in Primary at church, we have been learning the song "I Know That My Savior Loves Me."  The words to it run through my head often, and I DO know that my Savior loves me - and He loves YOU!

Click here for a 3-to-a-page version that is perfect for printing and using while you go visiting teaching!  For a 4x6 that will print as a photo, right click the image above and save, then print.

Happy Visiting Teaching!  Thanks for sharing, pinning, and enjoying. :)

Some new GREAT fonts!

I was looking up a font for a project I am working on, and noticed that there are some really GREAT new fonts available!  Most of the fonts I have listed below have only been available for a month or two.  And for free!  

I often have people wondering what font I used in projects, and usually, the answer is a font that I purchased.  However, most people who ask me aren't selling things that they use the fonts for, and don't want to purchase the awesome fonts that lots of designers use.  These are some beautiful and fun and FREE options you can use!  I LOVE these, and will be contacting the designers on a few of them to get commercial rights to use them.  

*** These are all ONLY free for personal use.  If you are going to use them in a commercial way, please do the right thing and purchase the font or donate to the creator! (depending on their terms of service :) )

Enjoy creating beautiful things!

PS - I want to start making a font round-up a regular thing on my blog, so keep checking back for the next one!

Other Designs

I am constantly working on design projects for people - below are some of the ones I did last year.


My brother just returned home from serving an LDS mission - I designed this as a large poster that my family had at the airport.

My dad teaches 3rd grade - this year he has a jungle theme in his room.  These posters are hanging in his classroom.

A custom design that will be up in my shop soon.

A custom designed family mission statement.

My cute cousin is serving a mission in Texas - I designed this for her blog:

Missionary stationary

A handout that a Stake Relief Society is passing out in Ward Conference this year:

A custom quote design (will be up in my shop soon):

Business cards - I designed a new logo and made all the social media headers, icons, etc for this cute business

Evolution of a new logo for a cousin's photography business.  We started out thinking she wanted something on the first proof board, then evolved to the designs on the second proof board.  The final product is the dark wood circle. 

A company that I did a lot of ad design for.  There are too many ads inside that I did, so I am just sharing one of my favorite projects I did - this cover:

A cute Relief Society lesson handout for a sweet lady in my ward.
 My friend Carrie teaches Dance Fit in our community - this flyer is one of the things I did for her last summer.

I love doing custom designs and working with you to get exactly what you need and want!  Let's get working on something soon!
