Minted: A Review + Giveway!!!

So, let me tell you a secret.
In my house, in my loft, in a little drawer, I have a small hoarding problem.

I have every wedding invitation I have ever received.

I also have the accompanying favors, programs, name cards, and any other wedding paper items that have come along. I like to keep these things and look through them later.

Also, at my Grandma's house, framed and sitting on her dresser, is her wedding invitation, from 50 years ago. I remember being a little kid and brushing my hair with her gold comb, brush, and mirror set, while reading over the words of her ivory invite framed in a silver platter style frame.

Here's what I'm saying: The invitations might be my favorite element of weddings. 

Minted.com recently contacted me about sharing with you guys a little bit about their Wedding Invitations.
Browsing through their selection makes my heart tingle. There are all kinds of different styles, from classic, to modern, to vintage, to eclectic.

If I were getting married right now, I'm pretty sure I would have a hard time deciding on which of their amazing invitations to send. They even have these awesome inspiration boards, built off  the style of different invitations they offer.





This might be my favorite part of not being married yet, the fact that I get to still get to plan and dream of my
someday wedding.
Will I be the kind of bride to choose a more classic look? Or something more outrageous?





And here's what else. Minted offers so many millions of adorable other things, notebooks, prints, address labels, note cards, and plenty of other paper goods for those of us who aren't walking down any aisles anytime soon.

I mean these journals?!? Come on! I'll take one of each please.





The great news for you is that Minted wants to offer one lucky A Cuppa Kim reader a $50 credit to their online store - to be used on ANYTHING your little heart desires (not just wedding invitations). Can we say, OH YEAH!

I've only done a few giveaways on this here little blog, and I have to tell you, they have all been products that I love. This is no exception!


  • So here's the way it works, head on over to Minted.com and let me know what item you would get if you won the credit! Leave me a comment for an entry.
  • Get a second entry by leaving a comment with a link to your favorite inspiration board. I'm curious what your style is!
  • A third entry for sharing a link to this giveaway via social media: twitter, pinterest, instagram, or facebook. You can share as many places as you like, but just one entry. Leave a comment letting me know!

And that is it! Everybody can have up to three entries!
PS: Minted ships internationally, so this giveaway is open to everyone everywhere! 

 Entries will close at noon on Monday, April 15, and I will announce the randomly selected winner Tuesday Morning!


This happy little giveaway and review post is sponsored by Minted.com. All stories and opinions are my very own. Please & thank you.
