Personalized Invitation/Stationary Giveaway--"Decorable Designs" Etsy Shop Feature and Review

I know that I usually do book reviews, but I have decided to branch out into some other areas.  I have some new and exciting things coming up this month.  I have been asked to be the administrator for the International Book Club of Clean Reads!  I'll be hosting Katy Lee, the author of Real Virtue, next week on my blog and I'll share more about her book and the club then.  I'm also excited to mix it up with some awesome product reviews and giveaways that I have lined up!  This week I'm reviewing our first amazing product, stationary and invitations from Decorable Designs.  Coming up, we have Sea Snax and Kristine's Shower.  If you have a product or shop you would like me review or giveaway on my blog, please send me an e-mail at Meganleigh844@gmail.com.

Congrats to our winner, Kristie!  Thank you so much to all who entered and stopped by!

I'm honored to be hosting Etsy shop owner Aubrey Roth on my blog today!  Her shop is called "Decorable Designs" and can be found on Etsy.  Please take a moment by clicking here to go to her shop and check out all of her amazing creations! 









Review:
Aubrey sent me this really cute bridal shower mad lib to review.  Usually she will personalize her product to fit the order (such as to put the date of the wedding in the little jars and the bride and groom's names in their respective places in the story).  She said most guests just order her invitations and stationary as a DIY printable (they come in GREAT prices for wedding invitations)!  Then the customer can print their order out themselves once Aubrey sends it to them on the via e-mail.  That way a person doesn't have to worry about something getting lost in the mail and it is also fast service.  Aubrey recommends that her customers print the ivitations and stationary on white card stock.  She even sends them with an extra border to make it easier to cut them out. 

I think this mad libs is so cute and such a fun idea for a bridal shower!  It has bright, spring-like colors.  I love the sunflowers in the jars at the top that give it that extra touch!  It will bring lots of laughs all around and is a memento that the bride will cherish for years to come.  


Aubrey's Shop:

As mentioned above, Aubrey does a lot of the DIY invitations and stationary, where she will personalize them for you and then you print them out.  Aubrey can also do a complete custom order for you (where she designs and prints everything).  Here are some of Aubrey's creations that I just had to share (notice that I chose a lot of the book-themed ones--but she has all sorts of different themes, so be sure to check out her shop).
