Kay and Larry's X-Mas Cards

I used pyrite (metallic silver) cardstock with matching envelopes and navy linen on back of the panel. I used thing navy thread round the bottom to add a little "extra" to it. I love the way these Christmas cards turned out!!! From the colors to the fonts, I just love them!

Sarah's Holiday Party

Sarah contacted me about making her holiday party invitations. I was more than happy to do it because they were so fun to make. The party is casual and we tried to show that through the wording and martini graphic, and I fancied them up a touch with the graphic at the bottom of the invitation. They are done in red and a light gold. I tied the envelopes in by doing them in the matching light gold with a red customized envelope liner.

Becky and Pete's Invitations

Wow! It seems like eons ago that Becky contacted me to do her invitations. Her wedding is December 9 and when she booked, December seemed so far away! Now here we are, her invites are due in the mail any day now! Time sure does fly when you're having fun!

I really enjoyed Becky's invitation. I like the paper used (ecru linen) and the soft yellow damask graphic adds such a nice level of elegance. Originally, the design didn't include the ribbon, but I found this gorgeous yellow ribbon that was an exact match and threw it in as a little added bonus! I think the ribbon does an amazing job at dressing the invitations up a little bit more.

Becky was such a pleasure to work with, and even nicer in person. I am thankful I got the chance to work with her!!!

Sarah's Seating Chart and Extras!

Sarah contacted me a couple weeks back and asked if I could do her seating chart and table numbers. I also did a bar menu for her as well. I used the same papers as her invitations and did a full color seating chart in exactly the same colors and framed it with this beautiful black frame. Sarah has been a dream to work with and I wish her and Mike all the best! You're a doll!!!

Liz and Robert's Extras!

Liz originally came to me a few weeks ago asking for help formatting a seating chart and programs. I helped her out a little bit by telling her the best program to use and the size of the seating chart. At one point, she decided to ask if I could do them for her...I was more than happy, especially with Liz being my very first seating chart! I love the way her seating chart turned out and it looks beautiful in the cherry and black wood frame that I am "loaning" her for her wedding.

Please excuse the blurriness of the seating chart picture...I am really, really bad at taking pictures! :-(

Good luck this Saturday Liz! I hope your wedding turns out amazing!!! <3

I'm going to start doing blogs about my favorite new or current vendors! I'm starting this off with a wonderful cake creator and owner of Sugar's in Ferndale, Michigan. Are you looking for cake centerpieces, a grooms cake, birthday cake or a cake just for the sake of eating cake? Sugar's is a great place to consider when shopping for the perfect cake. I have known the owner for around seven years now and adore her as much today as the first day I met her! Check Sugar's out here!

Amy's Extras!

I did Amy and Bryan's inviations earlier this year, and I can hardly believe that its time for their wedding!!! I used the same papers as their wedding invitations to do their extras and I carried forward their custom graphic and fonts. The package includes table numbers, escort cards, reserved signs and bar menus...not pictured is the vellum candle wrap that I printed and cut and Amy is assembling it.

Best of luck Amy and Bryan!!! You've been an amazing pleasure to work with!!!

New computer...

I just purchased a new Apple MacBook and I'm in the process of setting it up and migrating all my stuff over. If I am slow in response to you please understand that I am going in between two computers right now. I hope to be up and fully running on my Mac in the next couple weeks (waiting for my Fusion software to arrive so I can run Windows XP simultaneously with Mac). What a process!

Christmas What?!?!?

I'm expanding my paper products to include Christmas cards. This is an idea I just came up with today. It's a 7x7 un-layered panel with a lined vellum overlay. "Merry Christmas" and a greeting are printed on the card and the vellum overlay has a Christmas tree on it. Everything is tied together like a gift with a satin red 1/2 inch ribbon. A white, red or green envelope will complete this greeting card perfectly!

This would be very pretty with different graphics such as a gift, Christmas tree ornaments and so on...it would also make a cute birth announcement, birthday invitation...or really anything!

Annual Family BBQ

My husband's family gets to gether every year for a family BBQ. This year my sister and brother-in-law are hosting. I offered to make invitations for the event and came up with these adorable bright green, dark purple and white invitations!

Kristi's Rehearsal Dinner and Day After Brunch Invites

Kristi contacted me about a month before her wedding with an idea in mind for what she wanted. She showed me the damask graphic that she liked and I was able to use the light pink paper and burgundy ink as a contrast. The package includes a 5x7 RD invite and a 4x5 Brunch invite.

And More Samples...

I've had all these samples done for quite some time...it was just a matter of getting a break in the action to get them blogged and put on my website. Ahhh...sigh of relief!

Samples, Samples, Samples!!!
