Woodland Baby Shower

I had the joy of reconnecting with an old classmate of mine who was expecting her first child! Julianne and her husband live out of the country (all the way in Dubai) so we started chatting through e-mail to gather ideas and info regarding what vision she had for the design. Julianne is an artist herself and I love the direction and inspiration she brought to the project!!

I first met with her sister and mother to discuss the details and then was lucky enough to get to see Julianne and meet with her sister again to finalize everything. Julianne wanted to use earthy, vintage colors and as many eco friendly materials as possible. She also wanted to incorporate a doily/lace border. She illustrated the woodland animals that we incorporated into the design to give it a personal touch..how adorable are they!?

Each of the invitations were enclosed in forest green string tie envelopes that featured recycled kraft paper wrap address labels that matched the invitation panels. We also enclosed an insert as Julianne was having her baby girl here in California and was not going to be able to fly back with many gifts. Julianne, it was a joy getting to see you and design for you! I'm so incredibly happy for you and wish you and your little family, all the best! Here are pictures of the design!

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!
