Set sneaks! Marcella‘s Mixtape

FREEZE!  What song lyric do you have in your head right this very minute?

Now ask yourself:  Would it make a good card?

Turns out quite a few songs fit the bill when it comes my mental playlist. So many, in fact, I designed a set for Power Poppy called Marcella’s Mixtape (Vol. 1), featuring 16 images and hand-lettered sentiments inspired by them. Today we invite you to bebop all over the Bloom Brigade’s blogs, and see what they’ve designed with these lyrics as their muse.

Build up the Buttercups in your life with a breezy bouquet. Tell those cool chicks you hang with that they are way too Superfly! Celebrate Good Times — Come On! with a trio of vintage party horns. We can almost guarantee you’ll break into song while you stamp these musical memories (We all did). Mix-and-match the sentiments and graphics to create combinations that will have your homies saying, “Word Up!”  Measures 4 x 6".

Marcella’s Mixtape is available for sale at on April 1st, but until then, let us tempt you a few soulful possibilities for this verrrrry versatile set.

If you’re getting the impression that we like to sing ... you are correct. And for the rest of the day, I shall be singing Build Me Up (Buttercup), either in my head, or maybe, for my cat.

The girls are rocking the new mix tape set! But I'm thinking back to my teenage years and trying to figure out why I never got into creating my own mix tapes.....oh yeah, now I remember, all my music was on 45 rpms!
