Download: A Valentine

Valentine13-1-Design Crush

A few years ago I made this same valentine as a paper craft card for friends and family, and it showed up in some mailboxes sans eyeballs (they’d fallen off!). The other day I decided to recreate it as an eyeball-safe card to share with you and your valentines! The PDF download below includes two folding cards to print on 8.5 x 11″ paper (letter size). It’s for personal use only, but you smart cookies already knew that!

Alt Summit Schedule

My Alt Schedule-1-Design Crush

By now all of you attendees have likely downloaded and filled in your Wardrobe Planner + Packing List and are starting to think about the actual Alt Summit conference. I’ve put together a little 8.5 x 11″ foldable schedule to help with that, all of the sessions and track options are listed so you can just tick off which ones you plan on attending! It comes in handy when you’re caught up in the adrenaline and excitement and don’t know which was is up (trust me on this one). You can download your Alt Schedule right here. See you in five days!

Alt Summit 2013 Wardrobe Planner + Packing List

Alt Packing List 2013-pic-Design Crush

It’s almost time! Alt Summit is only a few weeks away and I’m sure everyone’s wardrobe planning is in full swing. For the third year in a row I’ve put together a little wardrobe planner and packing list for you to download and get organized with. It’s helped me massively every year, I don’t overpack (can you say carry-on?) and I know exactly what I’ll be dressing in for each day and event saving valuable time. You can download the 8.5 x 11″ file right here.

Pssst… if you’re interested in learning more about getting organized and planning your time at Alt sign up for my free Alt Channel class that’s happening this Saturday!
