A few weeks ago I received a little invite from Lindsay (Southern Lovely) and Becca (From Gardners to Bergers) to attend a little blogger dinner! I’ve followed Lyndsay’s awesome blog for awhile and we’ve chatted quite a bit via email and blog comments. Becca is seriously the QUEEN of knock off projects so I was pretty stoked when she asked if she could feature my Brick Wall. I was thrilled for the opportunity to finally meet these lovely girls, so of course I went!
This was my very first time attending a blogging function and to say that I was nervous is an understatement! The small group of ladies and chatting with Beth from Free Styling with Beth instantly calmed my nerves! We ate a yummy dinner, talked blogging, and got to know one another.It was fabulous!
Becca :: Beth :: Me
Here are all of the lovely bloggers I got to meet and get to know
Along with the tasty food and chatting we also enjoyed a few treats from some sponsors
Becca and Lindsay arranged these goodie bags that had little gifts in them!
I enjoyed getting to know these women it was a fabulous night!
I recently attended my very first blogging get together hosted by Lindsay at Southern Lovely and Becca From Gardners to Bergers. These two girls are seriously the sweetest! It was a blast and I enjoyed getting to know my fellow local bloggers! I wanted a fresh new look to my business cards for this little event but I didn’t want to spend a lot of money, so DIY business cards is what I did! I browsed around the internet a bit and was inspired by these designs…..

I loved the simplicity of the cards so I used a few elements from each and this is how mine turned out.
I wanted a unique, catchy, and memorable look. I used Photoshop Elements to create the layout, to add the font, and insert the QR Code. I saved my document to my SD card and took them to Kinko’s for printing. I spent a whopping $3.40 to have 6 sheets, 8 cards each, printed! I cut my cards up and added a strip of washi tape down the center of each.
That funky little printed box looks really intimidating but don’t fear… its SO EASY! Linda from Craftaholics Anonymous shared a little tutorial on how to add your QR code.
Here is how it works….
Go to THIS site.
1. Select what type of data you want converted into your code
2. Input your content.
3. Select what color you want your code printed as. I suggest keeping it simple and using the darkest black. This will prevent an errors when using/scanning the code.
4. Select your output type/how you want to receive your code. I downloaded mine so I could open it in Photoshop and attach it to my business card.
That’s it! So easy right! You could use these QR codes for your FB and Twitter page, a specific blog post, even your email address. Awesome!
Thanks for organizing the get together Lindsay and Becca! I enjoyed chatting and getting to know both of you :)
