Stationery and stickers

I finally started to do something I always wanted to do. Design stationery and stickers! I know, totally weird but when I was 14, my favorite hobby was playing with Paintshop Pro and designing greeting cards and I had large collection of Lisa Frank stickers. My dream job was a mixture of Hallmark and Lisa Frank. After 10+ years working in design for other people – I decided to work on stuff for myself.

I finally got my butt into gear and make some sets. It might seem silly to some people but these themed items have been extremely fun and I love how they look, its been really fun!

My stationery sets include the watercolor succulents, colorful hello and 2 fandom sets for Dr. Who and Harry Potter (slytherin).

Our sticker sets include watercolors of succulents (hand painted by Kimmy), dino origami and my newest set: gamer glam.

My sister Kimmy made a video showing the stickers up close.

I already have new sets coming in 2018. If you follow me or Mind Speaks on instagram you can see previews after Christmas.

    I’ve been following Mind Speaks for a while now and what you do is beyond amazing. You girls are just blowing my mind and I can’ wait to see where it all takes you. Plus, you know you have been an inspiration to be since I’ve first found your blog almost 5 years ago =)

    Those stickers and stationary are so cute! I am also in the process of designing and making stickers but for planners, something I’ve done for myself for a while but now want to do on a larger scale. Maybe. It’s kind of daunting, so I’m really impressed with your products!

    Oh my goodness! That is amazing!!! Designing stationeries/planners/journals have always been a dream of mine too. I love them so much, but am so particular about the ones I like, that I felt it’d be so much more efficient if I’d just made my own! I was even super close to buying a sticker making device. Hahaha.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such a nice comment. I hope you can enjoy or find something useful from my posts! 🙂

    @Hiro, yes! I couldn’t find a simple efficient layout I would use in my A6 6 ring planner so I made my own! It makes me feel organized being able to have my inserts match as well!!!

    Stickers are my weakness, I wasn’t sure if I could make them until I did a bit of research and happy with the results!! I love that so many people adore stickers!!

    Designing stationary and stickers sound really fun, and I think it makes sense that you’d really want to do it! The sets you made look so good too! I especially love the origami dinosaurs – what a neat idea. Can’t wait to see what else you design!

    OMG these are all so cute and that is such a good idea doing that! I thought about doing that to make stuff for my grandmother, she likes to write letters to people on pretty paper but they just don’t sell pretty stationary in my town because I guess there isn’t much of a demand for it. Kind of sad in a way.

    @Ongaku, I hope letter writing comes back into style! I have a small collection of random stationery but nothing seemed to match my style so happy to try and make my own!

    I used to try and design my own stationeries on Microsoft Word in the past! That was pretty fun! I even had taught little kids how to do them, and a couple of them became addicted to doing that! And I had to LOL when I saw you, too, also collected Lisa Frank products!!!

    I’m loving the ones you design. They are awesome. Keep it up with this. Hope you will go far with them ^^

    @Tara, Lisa Frank was something magical!!! I just found a big sticker book at Walgreens filled with tons of Lisa Frank – I just HAD to get it!!! Thanks soooo much! I was nervous making these but it was so fun to design and make!

    That’s awesome you used to make some too!!! I think its relaxing designing the stationery!
