Love is all around! {Valentine's Day 2011}

In honor of Valentine's Day, I wanted to blog three "love" themed projects that we have been working on!

We were contacted by Josh 4 months ago to work on a very special project with him! He was preparing to propose to his girlfriend, Christina and was trying to plan something special for the proposal. He had purchased a box of wine infused chocolates from their favorite winery and wanted us to "dress it up" and create an insert with a note that he had written for her. He was then going to have one of the chocolates featured in the box with her ring sitting on top so that as she opened the box, the proposal would unfold. The box was a beautiful grape color and to keep with the natural vineyard theme that Josh gave us, we added a citron green linen paper belly band to the box that featured dried grape vines, beaded grapes, raw silk ribbon, velvet leaves, and a tag. The proposal was to take place on her birthday so to throw her off, the tag read
"Best birthday wishes to Christina!
With Love, Josh"
When Christina opened the box, she found the note from Josh that featured the words "Marry Me" at the bottom. A single chocolate truffle with her ring were below the note.

Here are the pictures that I took of the box (with my engagement ring) before handing it over to Josh. And in case any of you were wondering...Christina said "YES!".
We also were contacted by two wives that wanted something more "edgy" for their husbands. The first one needed something that was poker themed as she wanted the inside to say "You are the King of my heart! Thanks for giving me a full house!" which we thought was totally adorable. She will be giving this to her husband on Monday along with her boudoir album...he is one lucky guy! The other wanted a card that incorporated edgy metal elements. We used silver metal sheets, mesh, metal die cut letters, and distressed paint to create this card.
Next weekend I'll be posting pictures of a candy buffet that we coordinated that is going to be set up for a "mommy and me" club's Valentine's Day party!
We hope everyone has a fabulous Valentine's Day! XOXO


  1. They look great! And what a fun way to ask your lady to marry you. :)

    Loved the masculine cards!

Lauren | Feminine Kitchen Themed Shower

For Lauren's bridal shower design, we were asked to incorporate kitchen accessories and pink and white damask!  Loved the girly touch to these designs!  We also designed coordinating recipe cards for the guests to fill out and bring with them as well as favor tags! The design was printed on white metallic paper (as well as the other accessories) layered on black metallic cardstock, and enclosed in a coordinating metallic envelope!

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!

Brea + Byron | "Mustache Bash" Couple's Shower

Here is part 2 of Brea and Byron's baby shower designs!  For their couple's shower, they wanted "Mustache Bash" themed invitations incorporating a mustache and bow tie!  We were dying to design using this theme so we were thrilled when they contact us!  A chalkboard texture and chevron stripes were added into the design along with a black and white newspaper print pattern that is actually the same fabric that will be in Baby Young's nursery!  Brea's a teacher and wanted books for her little one so a book insert was also included in this design.  Love this idea!
