Stripes and Sprinkles

started as an outlet for exploring our design styles that turned into a space to share things we love, with other creatives on a budget.

Meet the Authors

Vina and Amanda met in college as dorm roommates and are now living their dream of being graphic designers in Philadelphia during the day.

They are always trying to find ways to stay creative outside of work by crafting, cooking and reading up on the latest fashion and beauty trends.

Budget-friendly projects

As millennials trying to survive in this economy, we love to find ways to to keep things affordable. We believe you shouldn’t have to sacrifice style and fun because of a small budget. For this reason, we’ll provide you recipes for easy affordable meals, ideas for budget-friendly fashion and DIY gifts or projects that will impress others without breaking your bank.

What sets us apart from other blogs

Most of our projects come with FREE printables (gift tags, labels, cards, etc.) to take your finished products to the next level. 

Design is our bread and butter. As a way to stay relevant in this fast changing industry, experimenting with design styles, techniques and trends with the FREE printables we provide, is one way we keep our skills sharp and express creative freedom. With that said, we take these printables seriously and consider them to be just as important as the projects themselves.
