Beautifully Simple Wall Art from Minted | Stash Bash Sponsor

I’ve long admired Minted‘s gorgeous art marketplace, full of beautiful modern artwork from artists around the country. In fact, I had been eyeing one special spot in my office for some new art.

When I was contacted by Minted, I knew this was a great opportunity to not only fill that spot but to share a beautifully simple product with you. (And there’s another special surprise below!)

I chose a beautiful abstract print by Yao Cheng of Columbus, Ohio that yes, coordinated with my albums.

What I love most is that you can have Minted frame your prints. If you’re like me, you might order a print from somewhere else and then it sits for months until you get around to framing it.

All I needed was a hammer and a nail to go from box to wall!

I ordered the standard level of print and framing. The quality was beautiful, so I can only imagine what the greater investment would offer! It came professionally framed with a gallery wire on the back.

Living in a small town in can be difficult to find wall art locally that I love. I’m no hipster, but am far from a traditionalist. I was excited to see so much artwork in my favorite styles – and from a trusted seller.

The only thing I wish was offered was matting service. I prefer the look of prints in a mat, but the option of a white frame is a nice substitute.

Did you know that Minted even has prints of this popular drawing from Studio Calico’s Matthew Taylor Wilson?

I will definitely shop at Minted again.

Stash Bash Sponsor Announcement

Stash Bash: A 5-Day Scrapbook Organizing Party

As a scrapbooker you have plenty of ideas and sources of inspiration, but often what you lack most is motivation.

More than two years ago I first had the idea for a fun, multi-day online event where you could get excited and “party with what you’ve got”. I sat my husband down on the couch and I told him we weren’t moving until I had a catchy hashtag-able name for such an event.

That night, Stash Bash was born. (Or #stashbash, if that’s your thing!)

During this one-of-a-kind event you’ll receive encouragement and accountability to use, declutter, and organize your paper or digital scrapbook stash. After successfully completing a Stash Bash, you will have a smaller stash, a cleaner workspace, and more motivation to make organization a habit.

Stash Bash: A 5-Day Scrapbook Organizing Party

The Stash Bash scrapbook organizing party returns to Simple Scrapper next month – and registration is now open!
