Caleb's 3rd Birthday [Handmade Card]

My cousin, Kristin, and her husband Phil, had a baby boy 3 years ago. This little boy is the most adorable thing that you have ever seen and he and his family have been through to much! Caleb recently had a heart transplant. In his first 3 years of life, Caleb and his family have had to endure things that most of us can't even imagine! From countless doctor visits and testing, to being transported by medial helicopter to being put on the waiting list for a heart transplant to then receiving one - Caleb, Kristin and Phil have handled it in the most amazing way! I can't tell you how proud of them I am and how happy I am that my little cousin is now finding out what it truly means to be a kid!
His 3rd birthday party was held in August. It was a huge party! Unfortunately, my husband and I had already made plans months before to be in Santa Barbara celebrating our anniversary but my mom was able to go and said it was amazing! We both created this card for her to take to Caleb. This birthday card was given to him along with a "telegram" that we created telling him and his parents that he would be receiving a very special and vintage train set from our family. The whole party had a cowboy theme to it and was held at the fair grounds in a barn. There was face painting, a petting zoo, a huge multiple tired cowboy cake, and so much more!

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…

A&E Photobooth | Gift Certificate Design

I had the honor of designing for Eva and Anthony last year and they have since turned into fellow wedding vendors as well by starting their own photo booth company called A&E Photobooth!  They contacted me to design a gift certificate for one of the bridal shows along with a 3 piece candy buffet for the guests visiting their booth in their company colors of black and red. We wish both of them tons of success in this new business venture and highly recommend them if you are planning an event!
