Nicole and Mike ~ Save the Date

Nicole is great to work with. She new exactly what she wanted. Her venue is decorated with gorgeous chandeliers, so she wanted to incorporate that into her stationery. Along with elegance, sophistication and simplicity, I help her dream become a reality.
The save the date is an A7 card printed on shimmer metallic paper with a magnet attached so her guest's can put the reminder on their fridge.

Rebecca and Gregory

Rebecca was a delight to work with. Her wedding colors were great to work with as well: golds and creams with a touch of brown and fuschia.
Her invitation was made of a deep chocolate brown matte pocketfolder and the inserts mounted on the same color cardstock. The invitation and inserts were printed on ivory metallic paper. She wanted gold printing and with the right color, I was able to make the ink look like gold printing on the ivory metallic paper.
The overall look was gorgeous and classy.

Nina and Derek

I love the use of brown and green. The colors are rich, natural and just look good together!
Here I incorporated a metallic pocketfold with matte printed materials. The green cardstock bordering the inserts was also matte. To tie the metallic together with the invite - I used a white sheer, organza ribbon to seal the invite closed.

Baby, Baby

I belong to a mom's group and we decided to send a special present to the moms to be. I designed the greeting card for the gifts. I had a lot of fun designing this card - I did a gatefold card style with a belly band wrap. I also incorporated the design with an envelope liner.

Snips 'n Snails and Puppy Dog Tails…

I had so much fun creating these invites for Jen. Jen wanted to incorporate the cute bedding the mom-to-be picked out which consist of puppies. I love how I incorporated the puppy paw prints with the envelope liner....pulling everything together.

My niece turned 16!

Happy Birthday Mariah!
I can't believe my niece is 16 - I remember her being born like is was yesterday.
I had the joy to design and make her party invitations. She decided to have a black and white Sweet 16 party. I designed the invites with elegance, yet fun! I used white metallic paper for the printing and mounted on a black matte cardstock.
Have fun Saturday!!!!! Love you

Birth Announcements
My good friend from High School, Mandy, gave birth to a beautiful son on July 8th of this year. I am so proud to be able to design his birth announcements.
She provided the picture (which is so cute) and I pulled some of the color elements from it. The overall look and feel of the announcement is fun and exciting and contrasts well with the picture.
Congrats Mandy and John!!!!

Mandy and John will also be celebrating the christening of their son next month. I decided to use the metallic paper to give the invite an overall feeling of fresh, new and innocence. I forgot to take a picture, but the back of the invite is solid blue metallic (like what I did with the fan programs click here).

Jennifer and Casey

Here is one of my save the date styles with a magnet attached. The magnet is a standard business card size - perfect for the refrigerator (doesn't take up too much room!).

For Jennifer and Casey, they wanted an elegant, yet tasteful design. I decided to do a damask pattern. Jennifer than decided to upgrade to the metallic paper after seeing a sample of it. They take your breath away in person… Great choice Jennifer!

Fan Programs

I did a different twist with my fan program design this time around. I found out that working with metallic cardstock for fan programs is very tricky - cutting, fanning out, etc... So I decided to print on the metallic text and than glue to a different color for the back side.
They turned out GORGEOUS!!!
I also tied them together with ribbon instead of a grommet - gives them more of a flair!

Baby elephants, Oh my!

My good friend Carin is expecting her first child with her husband Dustin. I was so excited when I found out and one of the first things that went to mind, was creating all her stationery she will need for the baby.
Her friends decided to do an elephant theme for her shower since the baby's room will be done in elephants. I chose warm earth tones since she doesn't know what she is having.
I love the way they turned out and incorporating the envelope liner made the finishing touch!

It's a BAY-BEE shower!

Jennifer from OC's Finest Weddings contacted me to help her come up with a bee shower invitation that would go with her bee theme. She didn't want to go too childish with Winnie the Pooh, but nothing too modern as well. What I designed was perfect! I just love the way they turned out!

Jen and Neil

I had a lot of fun working with Jen and Neil. I worked with them from the very beginning with their save the dates.

She choose vibrant colors: orange, fuchsia, deep red, antique golds. Since they cherished each others family routes, the invitation was done in English and Indian (I currently do not have a picture, but will soon).
Jennifer from OC's Finest Weddings did a fabulous job bringing it all together!

Mari and Richard

Here I designed an invitation using a matte pocketfold with printed metallic invitation and inserts. I love the contrast of the two. I feel it adds more dimension and texture to the invitation.
