Are you looking to make whimsical branding for your blog and small business but don’t know where to start? Enter: Design Bundles.
Design Bundles began in July 2016 and offers affordable digital products such as Graphics, Templates, Mock Ups, Patterns, Illustrations and Craft Files.
Since their launch, Design Bundles now boasts over 1 million users who can browse over 150,000 marketplace products and save money on their curated Design Bundles with up to 96% off the regular retail price.
I’m going to highlight how I used Design Bundles to create my own blog branding single-handedly.
From the presets I use to edit my photos with, to how I made my media kit. Let’s dive in!
One of my favourite and most valuable resources for blogging are my Lightroom Presets.
Presets are a key asset in my blogging tool kit that truly elevates my imagery beyond what I would normally be capable of.
I get asked a lot about how I edit my photos and truthfully it’s all about finding a style of photography I like, and then a few different presets that I can tweak.
Design Bundles has lots of gorgeous ready-to-go presets that are ready to transform your photos in an instant.
If you’ve never used Lightroom before it’s such a simple, effortless app to use. You can also use it to edit your Instagram photos as Lightroom has a mobile app for on-the-go editing.
My pick from Design Bundles would be this dreamy preset called Whimsical that I use and love.
E-Book & Lead Magnet
How many of you have an email list? My email list is called Whimsy Wednesday and honestly, it’s my haven. It’s the community I always dreamed this blog could have.
My monthly email is a sacred place I feel the safest in this noisy internet world and I love sitting down to right it every month (it goes out on the first Wednesday of every month, so I’d love to invite you to July’s issue!) to such beautiful souls who have become family.
When you sign up to Whimsy Wednesday you will receive the ‘Whimsy Wellness’ e-book that I made with a template from Design Bundles that I could edit in Canva.
Lead Magnets are so powerful and their influence in the blogging world is only set to rise.
Do you have an idea for something you want to bring to the world? I’d love to hear your ideas about what your lead-magnet could be!
I really love this feminine Lady Boss design that can be edited on Canva.
Is a physical Product to sell on your blog something that appeals to you more than e-books?
How about purchasing some svg files from Design Bundles to design your own digital downloads?
SVG cut files are a popular and fantastic digital resource for all crafters right now. With them, you can make your own unique tote bags, shirts, mugs, handmade gifts and so much more.
You can either make your own branded products to sell or show off your creativity in some craft tutorials!
As well as printing on paper, you can also utilise different materials such as felt and cotton; it all depends on the capabilities of your machine.
What I love about SVG files (Scalable Vector Graphic) is that they are graphics that can be scaled to various sizes without any quality reduction. So there’s none of that dreaded pixelation no matter how much they are altered.
I love this collection of peach and cream roses that matches my branding perfectly. I’d love to make some products that I can send out with my blogging address as a really creative new type of business card.
If you want to work with brands then a media kit is such a potent tool to have.
My media kit is a document I can use to truly show the world who I am, what I do, and what my values are. I told you it was potent!
My media kit has gifted me with some incredible blessings along the way and I highly recommend diving into the process of making your own.
Again, Design Bundles make it absolute ease with templates that can be edited in Canva. This pretty black and white pink media kit template is a wonderful place to start.
Pinterest is my favourite social media of all time. It’s the most powerful form of marketing for me. Come and say hi if you’re a fellow Pinterest fan!
Pinterest is also such a wonderful place to gather inspiration for absolutely every area of your life. From recipes, to words to make up looks.
By making attractive and signature Pinterest templates you can truly amplify the reach of your blog posts.
Design Bundles has a huge array of Pinterest templates that can be easily edited on Canva. I love this pretty Blush template.
I hope your creativity has been illuminated and you’re excited to take this pause in life we all have right now to nurture the branding of your blog or small business.
What branding resources do you already have from the above list? What were the inspirations for you? I’d love to hear all about your blog or small business and what resources you use to make your impact in the world.
