Free Download: Harry Potter Quote "I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up To No Good"

Hi friends! I never really considered myself a major Harry Potter fan, but I can't doubt that I love the movies. (I tried reading the books when they first came out - I couldn't get into them.) Actually I realized I was in fact a fan when I impulsively bought the entire series at Target when each DVD was a whopping 5 bucks.

I find myself referencing the movie with quotes, I can't help but watch when ABC Family runs marathons (yes, despite owning the DVDs), and I secretly one day want to visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios.

So when it came time to practice some calligraphy and think about what fun phrases I wanted to write, I just had to write one of my favorite lines: "I solemnly swear that I am up to no good."

If you're familiar with the books/movie, saying this line activates Marauder's Map which reveals every inch of Hogwarts and the location of every person on the grounds. Oooh magical. I mostly like the quote as it sounds like I'm up to mischievous things.

To download this quote, which I wrote in calligraphy and then digitized into a print, simply click the link below. I included a few gradient color options as well as simple black and white.

The print itself is sized at 5x7" but you may resize in your printer settings to fit a larger frame.

Introducing... Instant Downloads on Etsy!

Hi friends! I've been working hard to provide more digital designs in my Etsy shop. While I continue to live out of boxes, it's tough to manage packages while I bounce from place to place. The benefit that YOU get is that you can your orders faster! Now I have FOUR instant downloads which allow you to immediately get a file to print yourself and they're only five bucks each. This could help you save tons of money as well!

First up... "On Wednesdays We Wear Pink"

I just updated my popular "On Wednesdays We Wear Pink" note cards with a fresh new design. I loved the old chevron but I thought it was time for something new, plus the old font kind of bugged me.

Next I have 3 custom calligraphy prints available for Instant Download. This means I wrote these by hand and then spent a lot of time cleaning up the image to produce a high quality print.

"Find Joy In Your Journey"

This phrase was one of the winners from a Facebook contest that I was hosting. I asked fans to tell me a phrase they'd love me to write and I would pick my two favorites. I liked this suggestion from Jenna because I felt it was very relevant in my current life phase. I'm still trying to picture the destination, so I'm going to enjoy the journey to get there.

"Enjoy the Little Things"

I love how pretty and light this one is. We have so much in life that we usually focus on the grand things we have. Why not pay attention to the little things too?

"Strong is Beautiful"

This was another awesome winner from my Facebook contest. Courtney of WOD Snob submitted this phrase and I loved it because I think that we should focus less on the shape of our bodies equating to beauty, and think about strength. Whether it's physically or mentally, strong is beautiful!

While my shop is not fully integrated with Instant Downloads yet, you can get the rest of my designs in digital form. Until I learn how to make editable PDFs, I'll still make any changes you'd like for my other items such as wedding and social invitations.

I hope you enjoy my new shop features! Let me know if there's a phrase you'd love to see, and soon I'll offer the option for custom calligraphy requests!

New Year, New Stationery!

Hi Friends! Posting is a little light this week because I'm focusing more on Etsy orders this week. Also, it's the first full week back to my full time job so I've been trying to get back into a routine with everything! Anyone else having a hard time coping with being back at work after the holidays? I honestly didn't know how I would cope without my daily naps and living in pajamas!

I wanted to do a quick post to show you my new stationery. Every time I'm in need of new business cards, I like to switch things up. And of course, each time I love my cards even more than the last one.

UPDATE 1/12/14: The lighting in the previous photo was driving me crazy, so here's a shiny new one!

Confetti Note Cards and Business Cards | Hey Love Designs

As you can see, the stationery matches my website! I'm really digging the confetti background of my site and I have yet to put my "new" (designed it back in August!) logo on anything in print.

I love them! I especially love the business cards! It looks like there's a party going on.

Curious about my past business cards? Check them out here, here, here, and here. You can definitely see that I've come a long way!
