About Laura Hankins

Hi! I'm Laura, a designer/illustrator, mother and wife. Fittingly enough I fell in love with stationery design while creating my own wedding invitations. Simply put I like all things pretty- flowers, fashion and textiles bring me endless inspiration.

Thanks so much for your feedback on my grandma shower! I've been so stuck on that one. A wonderful idea with no clear concept for layout is so stinking tough lol. But you helped me go back to my original idea of having the nicknames editable and I think I found a better looking font this time. I appreciate the push!

Thank you so much Laura for such kind comments on my design, and even more so, i am really thankful for you giving me some advice on the fonts and texts!! I really appreciate you taking the time to help me on that!....i am such a novice in that area!! I find it so hard to choose fonts and think of spacing...such a massive learning curve for me!! So thanks again for such wonderful help....i'll look into it!! And i must say your designs are so slick and sophisticated...stunning work! :-D

Hi Laura, thanks so much for taking the time to give me your thoughts on my "Nice Doggy" submission – not annoying in the least! You gave me a lot to think about, and I really did like that line, so I think I'll work to fit it in again. I tend to overcomplicate things design-wise (so many ideas!) and that rarely works out, so when someone says, "maybe lose it," I try to listen :) Thanks again, and have a great remainder of the week!
