Busy Busy Busy! July 31, 2008

It’s been a hectic week!

I’ve got two orders that I need to finish and one new client to get mock-ups to this week. One order I’m working on is a huge order – 115! The other order is invitations for my sister’s upcoming Sweet 16 party. I can’t believe that she’s turning 16. I feel so old!¬†ūüôā

Here’s a glimpse of what I’m working on…

Lions, Tigers, and Bears! Oh My! July 13, 2008

When my best friend, and maid of honor, was in need of¬†invitations for her baby shower, I jumped at the opportunity to help. She lives on the east coast with her new husband, and now new baby boy, so I was excited to do every little thing I could to help her plan this bash. I didn’t have too many limitations on designing her invitations, so that made it even more fun. Here’s what we came up with for her shower invitations.

Here are some other fun things she did to tie in the jungle theme at the party.

Brown & Orange July 9, 2008

Just because you’re having a beach wedding doesn’t mean you have to use “beachy” colors. I did these invitations for Sheri Hansen (now Sheri Wade) who was the photographer at my wedding. She had her wedding on the beach in San Clemente, but her colors were not the typical beach wedding colors. I loved that. I’m all about thinking outside the box and doing something a little off the traditional path.

I love how¬†Sheri’s invitations¬†look so crisp. Using chocolate brown with a hint of cream really makes your accent color(s) pop. I’m partial to using chocolate brown as a base color and then adding whatever accent colors. Brown is such an inviting color and definitely translates that to the atmosphere of your wedding for your guests.
