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! 🙂

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

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.
