paperie 2nd birthday
Winner announcements start on Monday, July 25th…
lateupdates sunday


If there’s such a thing a a super-duper triple-360° mega giveaway, well then #25 would be it! Up for grabs for one lucky Paperie reader are three amazing prizes from Francypants Boutique, One Willow Presets, and The Album Cafe.

Francypants Academy
Francypants BonjOrganization Guide
The BonjOrganization .pdf guide ($99 value) has over 50 pages teaching the art of balancing work and family along with client and time management. Bonus items include “Worst First” charts for the family, Kelli’s Mom-preneur schedule, client checklists, filing systems, and more. Also features Kelli’s extreme office make-over and the strategic setup of her office. It will change the way you work and play!

“I wish I could leap through email and just hug your neck. I read your BonjOrganization e-book last night and had so many light bulb moments. Really, I love organization. It makes me happy. But I can’t keep up with a system that I love yet. Now, I printed off your Worst-First Chart and your Schedule, and I’m tweaking them to our family’s needs. And already, I feel so much better!! I can do this! I had a very productive day today, kept up with housework, clients, Parker’s school program, and even ate dinner out with the family after the play. This morning? Both of my kids made their beds and Parker even finished his handwriting homework before we left the house. And I even had the strength (and sense) to say an emphatic NO to a client who is asking for yet another exception, and I haven’t even shot her session yet. (I’m not going to take the session at all, in fact.)

Thank you, Kelli. You’re such a gem. And I will be shouting the praises of your BonjOrganization e-book from the rooftops, darling.”
~Stacey Woods, Stacey Woods Photography

One Willow Presets

Simply Color Lab has added eight (8) new custom shapes of Sassy Designs Inc.’s to their standard die line. What does this mean for you? A larger, more unique shape selection to offer to your customers, more individuality, and NO ADDITIONAL COST since these shapes are part of their STANDARD line!

You can see the shape selection here:

   ”contest: Is your packaging the fairest of them all?

design aglow packaging

So for almost a year now this blog has helped you kick your packaging and presentation up a notch. Now the Design Aglow blog is calling you (yes, you) out. Do you have what it takes?

Packaging that’s so pert it’ll tickle you pink. That’s what Design Aglow wants to see.

Send us your best packaging ideas for the opportunity to be immortalized in Issue 11 of Design Aglow magazine: The YOU Issue. The more creative the idea the better.

Shoot us your pictures in full res/full size, with at least 2 shots of each package, along with a paragraph blurb extolling the packaging, the design process, who inspired or designed it, where you bought it, any obstacles in the process, why you love the packaging so much, what your clients/peers say, and anything else you think readers might want to know.

Make sure to give credit if it’s an idea you’ve borrowed, give a nod to the designer/company, and be sure to shout out the company that makes the packaging.

Whether it’s cinched, pulled, gathered, glued, tied or taped, make us proud and you’ll receive a free copy of the magazine issue along with a $100 Design Aglow shop credit. What’s more, you’ll forever be worshipped as the prime purveyor of packaging magnificence.

So go ahead, ladies and gentlemen: pimp your packages. Send us your entry here by July 1, 2010.

I’d love to see a Paperie reader win. Please share what you submit if you enter!
