Social media inspiration – black dot styled stock edition


Finding things to post on social media every day can be exhausting! Using styled stock images makes everything a trillion times easier – trust me. Here are three examples I created for the Black Dot Instagram page and why they work.


  1. Promote an event, sale or activity. Social media is made for catchy links. Take advantage and promote your business or shop with a great graphic to tell everyone what is going on. Make it simple and eye catching and make sure your text gives them all the key details.


2. Promote a blog post or some great information your customers need to know. Got something great to share with your best customers? Use social media to link them right to it. Use a catchy headline or leading question and make sure they have to click through to see what you’ve got to say.


3. Post an inspirational quote or message. Yes I know these can be cheesy but a positive little graphic sometimes can just make your day. Get on board and stay authentic by saying something that is true to your brand and don’t forget to make it cute and pinnable.

Styled stock is easy, quick and makes your social media look super professional! Check out our Etsy shop today to see if a styled stock image is right for your brand.

Two very different wedding styles : white vs pink

You guys know I am a fan of the pink – of course! – but I can obviously also appreciate the minimal styles and when it comes to weddings I love them both equally.

Here are two different styles from recent inspiration….

Flamingo Crazy


Flamingo fever has officially hit and I am loving it. There might even be a sneaky flamingo or two in baby girl’s nursery! So here are a few of of my current faves and you can be flamingo crazy too!

Shop Update


I’ve been busy working on a little project this year which I’m very excited about! My first baby is due any day now so in preparation I’ve closed my shops to have a little time with the new cutie. I’m hoping to be back in 2017 with all my normal shop products – Wink and Love Ideas Ink – but in the meantime you can still shop the Black Dot shop (open 24 hours on Etsy) and I’m adding some printables and e-books to the Love Ideas Ink shop.

In the meantime I’ll be posting on Instagram and I have a few blog posts lined up as well.
