Erica's "Will You Be My..." Cards

Wow, someone please tell me that it hasn't been nearly 4 months since I blogged last!? Well, the bad news is that is true, but the good news is, I haven't blogged because we have been so incredibly busy designing for our clients! It is WAY past time for a new blog post!

A popular trend we are seeing this wedding season is what we call "Will You Be My..."
cards which are cards designed to be given to your friends and family that you'd like to be involved in your big day as part of your bridal party! The first cards we designed this season were for Erica! She has been such a lovely bride to work with so I was super excited when she mentioned that she wanted to order some "Will You Be My..." cards. Erica is having a destination wedding so she needed to include a lot of information for her girls so we opted for a pocketfold card. Erica wrote each girl a beautiful letter that was displayed on the main part of the pocketfold where the invitation typically would go. Erica's wedding invitations featured a goldenrod graphic so we incorporated that same graphic into this design as well to add a personalized touch as their ceremony will be held in a field of goldenrod this fall in New York. Three inserts were also included that featured information about dresses, travel information, wedding date and colors, etc. Each pocketfold featured a custom monogram for each girl and was enclosed in a green metallic envelope that featured purple addressing and return addressing.

Stay turned for more picture of these type of cards including some cards for the guys as well! Yes, these cards aren't just meant for the girls....we've had just as much fun designing some for the guys as well! It is such a fun and personalized way of asking people to be a part of your wedding day!

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!
