Summer Collection & Freebie

After much debate, I've finally found the time and decided to reopen Splendid Actually, The Shop! In the past I've run the shop on Etsy, sharing handmade products. A few years back I opened a Society 6 shop and uploaded a few of my designs there but I've never really marketed them. A few sales were made just by Society 6 browsers but, again, I've never set a plan into place to market them or develop more products.

Planning became my main hobby about two years ago and I'm constantly exposed to fun, digital art through that source. I started creating my own planner inserts and stickers, several of which I've offered as freebies, here on the blog. Today I have another freebie for you (bottom of this post if you just can't wait any longer!) that will make a really fun sticker or die cut for fellow planner addicts. In creating these planner items, I realized I would love to see the art on other products... Re-enter Society 6. They take the hassle out of creating the product and provide really handy size charts for every product they offer - you simply upload your art.

Today I'm happy to launch my Summer 2018 collection. Summer has always been my favorite season; the warm weather, sunshine-filled skies, and of course, hanging out beside the water, thus my inspiration! Between these seven designs there are over 100 new products including phone cases, beach towels, stationery, mugs, totes, and more.

Beach Hydration | Nothing like sandy beaches to make you thirsty. Coconut, lime, grapefruit on rotation, please.

Floatin Along | The only way to nap in the summer is floating in a pool on a massive swan inflatable. You can't say I'm wrong.
Beach Babe | SUN. SAND. Messy bun. Big sunnies. Big earrings. Take me to the beach. Xoxo, Beach Babe

My Kinda Bag | It's woven, goes with everything and preaches "laid-back, summer-lovin" style. It's perfect for the beach, the pool, and sweet , steamy date nights. It's My Kinda Bag.

Lunch Plans | Spring break routine: Sleep late. Hit the beach. Fuel yourself on tropical drinks and food from the snack shack. Stay up late. Repeat til satisfied.

Beach Treat | A well-rounded diet consists of a good rotation of ice cream, popsicles, and shaved ice. What else is going to fuel your body between those fruity drinks?

Shore Views | Walking down the beach, looking up it's not uncommon to see a small plane pulling a banner advertisement. but what do they see looking down? Something like this?

I would love for you to check out the summer collection here. All proceeds from my shop, this collection or otherwise, are going to help send KJB and me on a mission trip to Ecuador this fall.

Now for the FREEBIE! Click the link to take you to Dropbox where you can get your own swan float clipart. Use this cutie to make a die cut or print them out on sticker paper to mark your pool days in your planner!
