A Special Project | "We're Expecting!" Announcements

Has it really been 4 months since I last blogged!?  Where does the time go?  We've been staying busy here at MDS and Sugar Rush with the 2012 wedding season!  So blessed to have such amazing clients!

Speaking of amazing clients, we just love when we get to work with clients again after their big day which was the case with this project.  One of our 2011 brides came to us after she found out she was expecting and wanted us to design some boxed announcements that she'd give to her family to announce that her and her hubby were expecting their first child!  What a cute and special project and we were so very honored to design these for her!

The announcements featured a blue and pink pattern with a soft gray backing panel.  Each announcement was enclosed in a white box that was filled with blue and pink paper shred and was completed with the addition of a thick gray satin ribbon that was tied in a bow.  The boxes were given to their loved ones and from what our client said, everyone loved them!

We'll be blogging the items we designed for this couple's wedding soon in which their identity will be revealed.  Believe me, you won't want to miss this wedding feature!

Halloween: Alice In Wonderland Style, Part 2

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…


For those of you visiting this blog-site, you've probably noticed we've been lacking on posts lately!  We have an excuse though, it's because we're re-branding and when we re-launch, we'll be debuting a brand new blog-site!!  I'm so excited to share the new site and branding with everyone!

In the meantime, our clients have been keeping us very busy!  The 2013 wedding season is about to wrap up and we're in the midst of designing holiday party invitations and cards.  I always love this time of the year! 

Stay tuned!

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…
