Here at Elizabeth Victoria we are committed to providing you great products and new designs to allow you to brighten up someone’s day.
Design at Elizabeth Victoria isn’t a word we throw around lightly. It’s not just a preliminary sketch or a motif or a pattern. It’s a way of life. It’s that perfect combination of every last detail that we provide in our products. We don’t stop until we feel they are perfect. Every product that you find on Elizabeth Victoria has been thoughtfully processed and completed to that last, precious detail that makes you excited to send it.

A proof is sent to you for your approval before we send it off to the printer ultimately creating one, final, perfect product.

Beth designed our birth announcement for our youngest daughter, Matilda Jane and we were thrilled with the design and quality of Elizabeth Victoria Fine Stationary. Thanks so much for joining The Cottage Home, Beth!  We are so glad to have you!

New Sponsor Highlight: The Blog Guidebook

I'm so excited to introduce you to one of my new sponsors, The Blog Guidebook.  Sarah and Lyndsay have done an incredible job with their new blog over the last several months and I am thrilled to be working with them.  Here's a little more about these two incredibly lovely and talented ladies........

The Blog Guidebook is the vision of two women—Sarah Bradford and Lyndsay Johnson—who want to see the blogging community grow in friendship, creativity and beauty. That's really what blogging is all about!

Recently launched in June of 2010, The Blog Guidebook encompasses all bloggers, be they crafty, creative, cooks, designers, teens, moms, dads, children in need, pet lovers, home stylers, antiquers, flea marketers, homeschoolers, doctors, lawyers, in any country, and on and on. You name it, you can blog it. And the Guidebook wants to know about it!

Blogging is a new form of journalism. It is a way to self-publish your dreams, hopes and stories of your world. The Guidebook offers a way for others to find you, in a friendly, happy, easy to navigate, safe environment. You'll find regular Spotlights and Features of notable blogs and bloggers, Free Listings for your blog, Blog Tips, Video Tutorials, and a live Help Desk.
