Hollywood Glam {Thank You Cards}

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

As most of you probably remember, my husband and I shot a "Forever After" shoot for our 1 year anniversary back in August! Jordana Hazel of Hazelnut Photography was our photographer for the shoot and Moira Taylor did my hair and make-up - both extremely talented and lovely ladies! If you are looking for a photographer or make-up artist in California, I highly suggest both of them! After our shoot, I wanted to thank them for all of their hard work and for making our shoot exactly what we wanted it to be so I got to thinking about designing thank you cards for them. I had found this flocked art deco patterned paper months prior and had been saving it for something special. I used this as my inspiration and found a cream colored velvet ribbon, black netting, and rhinestone buttons to finish them off! I really fell in love with the final product. I wish I could afford a whole stash of this paper because it was just that beautiful!

FEATURED EVENT: Ethan's 1st Birthday

Monday, March 15, 2010

Wow, I haven't blogged in so long! I apologize for not keeping up with it and promise to update more in the future! Now that I'm back, I wanted the first post to be our first feature! :)
I was contacted by Lindsey in October to design birthday invitations for her son, Ethan's, 1st Birthday! She had selected a pirate theme and the party was going to be held at Pump It Up! I found these individual cartoon pirate characters and accessories and created little "scenes" to use on the inside and outside of the invitation. Lindsey sent me the wording that she wanted and we paired it with a font that tied it all together! We also aged the ivory paper to give it a treasure map look. The invitations were enclosed in black envelopes that feature aged ivory address labels that featured the same font.
-Lindsey, I had so much fun designing these invitations and I am so glad that Ethan had an amazing 1st birthday! Thank you as always for all of your continued support of Matinae Design Studio! I really appreciate it! :) Thanks for allowing me to "steal" your pictures so that I could feature them!
