Looking into the Past — Part II

A look at more work I have done in the past...

Julie and Brad's wedding at the Balboa Inn. Julie came to me with the idea of taking her engagement pictures and using them as table numbers. She than incorporated writing in the sand the numbers of the table - such a clever idea! They turned out great!

Classic invite for a night of fun!

I designed this invite for our Open House back in October. Our home town has a festival every year called the Pumplin Festival and we held our open house on that weekend. It was great to tie in the season of the year and the festivities into the invite.

Simply Beautiful!

This is my first photo invitation and I love how it turned out. The invitation details part was printed on glossy paper while the rest was matte - great contrast! Another note, Leslie had a lot information to provide her guests, and doing 5 inserts work out perfectly.
These invites turned out great and I love the colors - perfect with each other. Best wishes to Leslie and Roy :)


I just love how this invitation turned out. I wasn't so sure about the layout at first, but after I made a mock up, it seemed to work great! Leslie was great to work with and I wish the best for her and her future husband! (Please click on each image for a closer look)

Happy 30th Birthday!

I love taking a turn and designing outside of my comfort zone. Of course, the majority of my clients are female and to be able to design something for a male is great! One of my clients threw her husband a 30th birthday poker party. She had no idea of what she would like to do - so I got to let my imagination run wild and above shows the outcome. I love it!

Looking into the Past — Part I

Here is some of my work I have done in the past year for my clients.

An identity I created for a personal concierge service. My client wanted something fun, spunky, and professional! She just loved with what I created.

My son just loves Jack from Disney's Nightmare Before Christmas. He wanted his 11th birthday party to be just that! For the life of me, I had the hardest time finding all the party supplies (the movie was released in 1993), thank goodness we have ebay! But I didn't care for the invites, so I created mine own. I cannot take credit for the wording, friend of mine wrote that - Thanks MelBel!

Isn't he the cutest! I created my friend's son's first birthday party invites. I just love them!

Leslie is a great person to work with. She has such bright ideas and I am happy to help plan her special day! One of the first pieces I created were her save the dates. I love the elongated card and I used glossy paper for the front and matte for the back.
