Spring Weddings!

The spring weddings are rolling in!  I have been very busy printing away these past few weeks.  This blog features two invitation sets, both very different and both new designs!

Up first are the invitations for Karah and Andrew.  I met with Karah in January and we discussed the details of her wedding.  I didn't have a design that exactly fit her needs, so I came up with a new design "Berry Branch".  Karah and Andrew liked the idea of a solid color invitation with white text and a white graphic. We chose to work with this berry color as it is a main color for their wedding.  The invitations were printed on linen paper and their package included envelopes with return address printing and guest address printing:

I also created shower invitations for Karah and Andrew as well as thank you notes.  My favorite part of their wedding stationery set though was not any of the above mentioned, it was this invitation:

The bride and groom had a combined bachelor/bachelorette party and all guests were attending a Tiger's game.  I thought these invitations were perfect and so much fun!

The next wedding invitation set also involves a new design, this one I LOVE!  I love it because I spent a lot of time of the development stages for this one and I was finally happy with the end result after coming up with 7 draft designs!  This design had to be perfect because these invitations were made for my sister-in-law!  Her wedding color is a dark purple with black and white damask accents.  The invitations coordinate with this theme with an all over purple damask pattern and black and white accents.  The envelopes that I chose to go along with the invitations were to die for!!  They were a slightly textured metallic lavendar with a hint of a silver sheen.  I was SUPER happy with the end product.  I printed the guest addresses and return address on the envelope to top off this beautiful set: 
This past weekend we celebrated at a combined bachelor/bachelorette party for the happy couple.  My other sister-in-law created gift bags for the guests and I made these personalized water bottle labels to be put on water given to the guests.  Aren't these great?!

Up next in the blog - Open house invitatins & the wedding of Christin & Randy!

Wedding Bells

The weddings bells are warming up and getting ready to ring!  I know this because I have been working on a slew of invitations lately, all spring weddings that are right around the corner!

The first wedding set, I sadly did not take many photos of :(  This wedding set was gorgeous, a delicate floral design (a new one, too!) printed on ivory felt paper, which was then mounted on silver metallic paper.  The invites had coordinating reception and RSVP cards, printed guest addresses and printed return addresses.  The set was very nice.  However in the middle of production of this order, a tragedy occurred in my family and after I was able to come back to reality, I was so hurried to get her order completed, I did not take time to take any photos.  This bride was so patient and understanding and her invitation set turned out truly beautiful.  Katie from Remaking Memories also created a personalized Christmas ornament that I gave as a gift to the bride and groom.  But I was not able to snap a photo of that, either :(.  Sooooooo, here is a photo that I DO have, one that I took of a print sample that I had, so please use your imagination and try to imagine how wonderful the entire set was!

And now, I am super, duper, duper excited to share with you the FABULOUS 1st birthday invitations that I created for one of my greatest friends.  As some of you know, Libby of Elizabeth K Photography is rather awesome.  She is fun, energetic and uber, uber creative.  Well, her cutie pie daughter is turning one in May and of course, there will be a fabulous party involved.  One thing I love about Libby is that she is creative in all facets of life.  From her photography and her personal style, to her ideas, she is always thinking outside of the box.  When it came to theming her daughter's birthday party, she did not disappoint.  The party is going to be vintage circus theme and we came up with these invitations:
Aren't they awesome?!  And really, I can not take much credit for these, the ideas were all her, I just put it all together and printed!  These invites are being sent in ivory envelopes and really give off the vintage vibe.  I love these and am so happy with the outcome :)

Stay tuned to the next blog to see the wedding stationery or Karah & Drew and Anna & Dan!
