Michael + Jennifer [Save the Dates]

These save the dates have to have been one of the most fun projects yet! Mike and Jen contacted me about creating save the dates for their wedding. When they told me that they were going to be using the red and turquoise color scheme that seems so popular right now, I jumped at the chance to create something for them! Jen e-mailed me a picture of a paper flower that she had seen and wanted to incorporate that into her save the dates. I gathered my supplies - some stickers, ribbon, 5 different patterned papers, 1 solid paper, and red envelopes and this is what developed....

These save the dates feature a huge layered paper flower on the front of them complete with a ribbon center. The saying "Love is Blooming!" is used on the front. On the back, more paper flowers are featured along with their save the date information. We used bright red envelopes with turquoise wrap address labels that had polka dot sticker accents on them. We used a coordinating paisley print paper for the envelope liners and cut out the paisley print to use as leaves for the flowers. I am so proud of how these turned out and it kind of makes me want to get married all over again. :)

-Mike and Jen, thank you so much for allowing me to create your save the dates. Your wedding is going to be so fun and unique. I wish you both all of the best!

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!
