Cole + Brittany [Dinner Party Invitations]

Cole and Brittany are one of the engaged couples that I'm working with right now. They have been such a fun and sweet couple to work with! Brittany contacted me in regards to designing dinner invitations for her. She wanted them to be bright and have a fun pattern to them. The dinner was to be an "end of summer" dinner, but what her guests didn't know, was that the dinner was really the chance for Cole and Brittany to ask all of them to be a part of their bridal party. How cute! I got Brittany's request about 11 days before the dinner was to take place so I needed to make them super fast! I ran to the store, found bright striped paper, and ran home to print them. I think I had them ready within 24 hours. I love when projects go that well!
We printed the invitations on white cardstock and then double matted them on a red/orange cardstock and then the bright striped paper. The striped paper has an underlying polka dot pattern to it as well. This paper was double sided, so even the backs of the invitations were colorful and fun! Sorry about some of the pictures being overexposed! Some of the client's information is blurred out to protect their privacy.

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!
