Long Time, No Posts!

Hi blog friends,

I wanted to take a quick moment out to make a new post. We've been busy here at Matinae Design Studio!! We've stocked up with new inventory, have started using some fresh and new techniques, and have booked new clients! We're so very excited to share these new projects with you and are hoping to continue to book projects and help people out with all of their design and printing needs!

My husband and I leave for vacation on Friday to celebrate our first wedding anniversary! Our wedding was also featured on
Pretty Chicky yesterday! What an honor to have been featured on Pretty Chicky's website. Thanks to Shari at PC for featuring us. A little post about Matinae Design Studio is also supposed to be posted but I haven't seen it yet. So excited! I'll be out of town from August 28th - September 1st and will have very limited computer access so if you e-mail us but don't hear back from me right away, don't worry! I promise to get back to everyone on September 2nd! I'll also catch up on blogging at that time. In the mean time, I'm off to pack for our beautiful trip to Santa Barbara, Carpinteria, and LA! We're also sneaking in a "Trash the Dress" session with Jordana Hazel of Hazelnut Photography. She's an amazing photographer out of Hollywood. Check out her blog to view her wonderful photography. If you love her and her work as much as I do and would like to book her, she is available for travel! Her sister, Moira, is also coming to do my hair and make-up and is also available to book!

Stay tuned! When I get back, we'll also be posting early holiday specials for those of you who want to get a head start on holiday party invitations, Christmas or other holiday cards, custom gift wrapping, and so much more! We'll also be taking orders for graduation announcements for the graduating class of 2010!

Have a wonderful weekend!

XOXO,
Jenae of Matinae Desing Studio

Halloween: Alice In Wonderland Style, Part 2

Over a year ago, I got the chance to design birthday invitations and accessories for an adorable set of twins.  During that event, a guest at that party (Melanie) noticed my work and asked or my info so she could get in contact with me about her daughter's 8th birthday.  Soon after, we met and realized she actually lived on my same street!  As we spoke, she told me that her daughter, Maggi, was born on October 27th and  they had always had a Halloween inspired party for her but this year she wanted to put a twist on it.  I had just seen an Alice in Wonderland inspired paper line that had just hit the stores and when I showed the paper to Melanie she fell in love with the idea of using the paper as our inspiration and turning Maggi's party into a Alice in Wonderland tea party with a Halloween twist!
We designed two panel invitations that were held together with ribbon.  The fronts of the panels featured Alice in Wonderland and Halloween elements while the backs featured the in…

Monday Matinae | "Beauty and the Beast" Styling with Jessica Frey

This winter, we got the opportunity to design for a unique shoot that Jessica of Jessica Frey Photography was putting together!  I can't tell you how excited we were to design for this and finally get the chance to work with her!  Jessica has done several fairy tale inspired shoots that are aimed to help brides find modern fairy tale inspiration. Such a cool concept!
For this styling, we had the opportunity to design an invitation suite, placecards, a cake topper, menu, and bunting.  For the invitation we created a navy metallic gatefold that featured an ornate metallic yellow frame that are laser cut and placed to "frame" the panel.  The panel was printed on pearl metallic paper and featured modern silhouettes.  A thick satin ribbon adorned with a gold brooch tied around the outside of the invitation.  The invitation was then placed in a navy metallic invitation box along with a coordinating response card and inner envelope.
Placecards were designed as tent cards using…

Ken's 50th Birthday | Jack Daniels

We got the chance to design another JD inspired birthday but switched it up a bit this time!  :)  Invitations were created using the design below and layered on white cardstock with coordinating envelopes.  We also got to design cupcake toppers and a bunting!  Unfortunately, I didn't get pictures of the bunting before it shipped but each panel was black with the white border design and letters spelling out "Ken's 50th Birthday". Each panel was tied together using black twine. So fun!
