Is your baby’s name popular?

Look through the 2010 birth announcements you received.  Do any of them announce the birth of a Jacob or Isabella??  Chances are they do!  The Social Security Administration released its list for the most popular baby names gracing all of those baby announcements in 2010 with Jacob and Isabella at the top.  Did you introduce a kiddo with a name on the most popular list in the year he or she was born??   Jacob Birth announcement

Planning a Bridal Shower? Go Peachy!

For a southern belle, or just a bride who loves summer, a peach-themed bridal shower is the way to go! Compliment a coral-hued cocktail with a trendy blue striped straw, served in a mason jar for a bit of rustic charm. Pair with Almond Peach Cake for a not-too-sweet snack. Set your table with peaches as place card holders, and send your guests home with a box of adorable peaches and cream colored macarons! If you fancy matching your outfit to your decor, try this coral and blue statement necklace from Cents of Style.

Want to have the hippest Save the Date magnets for your wedding?!

When we saw Adam Sowalsky and Jessica Fine’s fun Save the Date Magnet, complete with a QR code, we thought they were on to something!

A QR code is a barcode that can be “scanned” by a Smartphone.  The phone does require a special QR code app in order to read it, but the apps are easily downloadable,  free of charge from your Smartphone.  QR codes give you the ability to provide  your wedding guests with extra information by linking to your wedding website or to get creative by linking to a Youtube video of you and your soon-to-be spouse recording a special wedding message!   The QR code Adam and Jessica used redirects to a webpage with hidden content they will develop especially for those who snap the QR code.

QR codes can be added to any product at PaperSnaps.com.  Adam told us “we selected PaperSnaps because we were drawn to the well-crafted templates.  Your designing software made adding a QR code really easy to do, and since your existing templates were already great, it was a no-brainer to us.”

Creating the QR code is easy!  There are tons of websites out there that will let you create a code for free!  A QR code generator that we have used before is http://qrcode.kaywa.com/.  It was easy and quick.  So impress all of your friends by how “with-it” you are by using QR codes on your Save the Date Magnets today!
