Minted ~ #spon

Have you heard of Minted yet?

It seems everyone has these days. I've probably entered every Minted giveaway I've come across with hopes of winning a gift card so I could pick and choose some of their beautiful products for myself.

And here I am, talking about them to you.

Minted has offered me an opportunity to let YOU shop in their beautiful products.

Cool, right?

I think so. That's why I said yes!

But hang on. Let me fill you in on what's hot over at Minted right now.

The school year is coming to a close, and Minted's Graduation Announcements are sleek and elegant. Some are simple, some more flashy, but they have styles that work for everyone.

This one is one of my favorites:

I love the idea of using a baby or little kid picture and then a current picture beneath it. I also like the black and white look. I think it's classy. And it tugs at my heart a little as I look forward to my future and imagine my now 6-yo in a cap and gown. (Ahh - someone make time stop for a little while!)

Minted also has something really cool over on their website. They've got inspiration boards. Inspiration boards are a place where you can create your own little area of joy. Images of artwork, love notes to yourself and your family members, framed, not framed, color coordinated or not. It doesn't matter. It's a place all of your own that you can create and share via the Minted site.

An example of one that I find so pretty and classic:

My Art Wall by Kristin, see more
My Art Wall board by Kristin. See more

I kind of want all of these pictures for myself. They're simple, cute and just my style. Colorful and not cluttered. A perfect match. And you can create your own inspiration boards, too. And lucky for me, Minted is inviting me to purchase something, too. I haven't decided yet what I'll be buying, but I really do have my eye on this piece or something like it ...

Now for the fun stuff!

Minted has offered me a $50 code for one of my readers so you can do some shopping, too!

I was starting to use Rafflecopter for this giveaway, but then I got fidgety and decided to do it the old fashioned way and use comments and to pick a winner. So keep on reading for the giveaway details:


* Head on over to Minted and let me know which department you'd love to spend your winnings in!

OPTIONAL EXTRA ENTRIES (in separate comments, please. Don't hate me, but if all of your information is in one comment it will count as a single entry!):

* If you already follow me on twitter let me know and toss your handle into your comment. I'm not asking you to suddenly follow me to get this entry. And y'all know I'll know. ;)

    Thanks, Andrea! Fun that you're running this old school!! I love the idea of a graduation announcement with a picture of when they were younger, too! :) --Lisa

  4. Love the heart print but, since my son is having a birthday and just learned the alphabet, I'd love to give him the alphabet print.

  5. I have been exploring their shop! What cool things they have!

  6. I would spend it in the General Store. I love the cake stands!

  7. I'd be shopping for business cards! I love their stuff so much!

  8. I do indeed follow you on twitter - @ewokmama

  9. I love some of their Art Prints, but I also like the Party Decor. But if I have to choose right now, I'll go with the prints!

  10. Do I have to choose just one area to use the $50?? I love holiday cards, thank you notes and the art prints!

  13. I've gotten our Christmas cards from Minted for several years in a row, but I also love love LOVe their calendars!!

  14. I really need to do an adoption announcement, so since they don't have one of those I'd probably tweak a birth announcement.

  15. So cool! I'd have to say I'd spend it in the Party General Store. Stripey straws? Washi tape? Yes, please! :)

  16. Seriously? You want me to pick one? I can't. I'd probably get stuff from a bunch of departments and end up spending way more. But, perfection!
