Happy fall again!

I loved doing the job in the first photo! Brittany of had all different colored envelopes with color coordinated stamps and inks for each (katie mash up). Beautiful attention to detail - I would have love to have gotten one of these invitations in the mail! And if you don't know, Brittany ran a contest on her blog last year with the prize being my calligraphy on your Christmas cards! A little bird told me she may be running the same contest again this year, so keep your eye out for that! The last two photos were for Kinley - we did menus (she added her monogram to the top before having them printed, which explains the large space at the top) and signs for family member's wedding photos to be displayed at the reception (flourish in navy ink)
This is my slow time of year - not as many people getting married in December and early January, so I see a slow down for a few weeks. If you are a spring bride and happen to have your invitations early, or if you would like to fit in Christmas cards, thank you cards, party invitations, or any other type of project these next few weeks are your best chance for squeezing in before my schedule fills up again. Happy planning!!

Happy fall part 2!

I love this first picture! Maria found blank playing cards and I added the guest name and the table numbers in the top and bottom corner like an actual card. So cute!! The second picture was for Michelle using the mash-up style in gold on stardream brown paper. What a color combination! Third is the newest style added - katie- for Meredith in grey ink. Katie was a custom style I matched for - you guessed it - Katie a while back and I pictured it on the blog. Since then I have had so many people request it I have added it as a regular style! Last but not least, the autumn style in brown for Tamara. Simple, classic, and very pretty!

Happy fall!

Well, thank you to all of the clients I have worked with over the summer - it was the busiest summer I can ever remember! I may not have posted much here, but I took lots of pictures, so please bear with me while we play catch up. :0) The first two pictures were for Barbara and Phil - we did a favor sign which we adorned with real starfish to match their beach theme, and some signs for their signature drink the Elaphantini! The third photo was some signage with more of Lindsey's gorgeous paper. And finally some seating charts, which I have not done that often in the past but I have had it requested more and more lately. The Goldmans were married on a cruise ship with a beach towel wrapped in some rope as their favor, so I used the rope to make two sailors love knots to decorate the top of the board. (They wanted everything clean and simple to counteract all of the color on the cruise ship...). Christine didn't have anything specific that she wanted to add so we went with a classic flourish with a gold accent to play off of the chocolate brown ink. For anyone interested - seating charts have a set up fee of $20 to measure out all the names and columns and such, and then .50 per name.
