Beci Orpin

I am always impressed by illustrators, but Beci Orpin is extra inspirational because of how she has applied her illustration skills to a diverse range of applications from fashion prints to book covers and a myriad of things in between. Her website is full of brilliantly colourful backgrounds showcasing each project. Check out a few of my favourites below as well as the rest of her portfolio here.

Lee - reusable bags (no, seriously, this is the world's coolest bag!)

With a focus on not using bags when we shop, it is easy to see why this concept is so clever. Instead of shying away from handing out a shopping bag, why not make every part of the bag something reusable? That is exactly what Happy Creative Services did for Lee. Check out more about this project and the inspiration behind it on The Dieline.

Valentine's Day Cards

We had a craft night yesterday and with some foam hearts from Dollarama, some ribbon, and glue, we made Valentine's Day cards. Very simple, but fun!
