Kari & Nathan

My cousin, Kari and her fiancé, Nathan were planning a destination wedding in Kauai and they loved the invitations I created for Joanna and Matt. So we stuck with the same basic design and added elements to make it their own. 

Everything was printed on linen card stock by Cards and Pockets. We also created wraparound address labels and the envelopes were from Paper Source. 

Friends and family members who had already committed to attending were the only ones who received an invitation. The inserts included a map to the ceremony and reception. (This was the very first time I saw less-than-stellar print quality come from Cards & Pockets. The blocks of color didn't print as vibrant as they should have.)

There was also an invitation to attend a luau with the bride and groom and their family in lieu of a traditional rehearsal dinner.

The back showed a map on how to get there.

This was one destination wedding I was thrilled to get to attend!

The long tables were decorated with orchids and ripe pineapples that smelled amazing. At each place setting was a menu that I designed with their graphics and an engraved luggage tag that served as both a place card and a wedding favor. Each guest's initials were engraved on the back of the luggage tag.

It was an absolutely GORGEOUS wedding and such an honor to get to contribute a little, take some photos, and share the special day with Kari and Nathan. 

Congratulations!!

Melinda and Alex

I had the pleasure of working with Melinda on the items for her June wedding. She wanted to go with a winery theme, but she didn't want grapevines or grapes on the invitations. She saw the wine ring invitations I created for Allison and Eion and she wanted to do something similar.

Many thanks to Melinda and her wedding photographer for the lovely photos!!

We also created place cards and table numbers for the reception.

Last we created a seating chart that Melinda had framed with wine corks. It turned out so awesome!

Panda Themed Baby Shower

I created this baby shower invitation for a client a while back and I loved it so much I decided to expand on it and add it to my Etsy shop as a whole downloadable package. Here's a link to the listing: Panda Baby Shower

All of the files are writable PDF files, so you as the customer can fill in the information as it applies to the baby shower you're hosting.

Here's what's included:

All of the text can be edited on the invitation except the top three lines. Because of the nature of writable PDF files, you cannot change the alignment, size, color or font. 

This package comes with two options when it comes to an invitation insert. One is simple with just registry information. The second includes verbiage for a diaper raffle AND registry information. You can print whichever one you'd like.

Water bottle label and a "wishes for baby" card.

Place cards can also be used as food labels for a buffet and napkin rings can also be wrapped around candles or vases for extra decoration.

Favor tags can be printed onto adhesive paper and made into stickers or they can be printed onto card stock with a hole punched at the top for a more traditional favor tag. Thank you cards are designed to be printed as folded cards that are blank on the inside.

The last item is this card that lets guests take a guess on baby's birthdate and other fun stats. This can be a fun keepsake for new parents.

I am planning to add this same baby shower package but with this aqua and lime green color scheme too, stay tuned!!

Melissa & Jeff's Baby Shower

I had the pleasure of creating a baby shower invitation for Melissa and Jeff with some really beautiful colors and fonts. Here's the invitation:

Folded tent cards acted as signs for the buffet. The same design could easily work for place cards too.

Favor tags adorned small mason jars filled with sugar scrub. Perfect for the sugar & spice theme.

Lastly, a front door sign welcomed guests to the party.

Joanna & Matt

Joanna is one of my oldest friends (as in, I've known her forever) and when she told me she was getting married in Maui, I was SO thrilled for her!! 

For their save-the-date, she and Matt wanted it to be fun so we did a two-sided postcard that asked guests to let them know if they were planning to make the trip out for the wedding. 

The back showcased a few photos that they took on a recent trip to Maui.

And I loved making a custom, fake postmark for them with their wedding date and location.

For the invitations, we went more formal, but kept the same brightly colored floral graphics.

These were printed on linen-textured card stock by Cards and Pockets. The linen card stock really added an extra level of class to the whole invitation.

Details! 

We created a response card that was a two-sided postcard. 

They were so stoked that they found postcard stamps with Aloha Shirts!

A second insert was of a map showing the locations for the ceremony and reception.

Lastly, we created folded place cards for the reception using the same graphics and fonts as the invitations.

These were such an honor to work on and I love how beautiful everything turned out. Congrats

Sweet Pea Baby Shower

I created this baby shower suite for my friend's baby shower a few years ago and then I expanded on the theme to create a suite that is available in my Etsy shop or can be customized.

The graphic at the top shows two peas in this mama's family, but I also have it available with just one pea.  

The invitations are sized to fit a #10 envelope and the text below the "peas join us" can be edited. There's space at the bottom to list the mom-to- be's registry info.

Simple cupcake toppers. We tried to top cupcakes with crushed Oreo cookies to give the illusion of dirt, but I don't think it was very successful.

Napkin rings. These can also be wrapped around candles or vases. 

Don't have fun swirly napkins?? I made these with some pinking shears. No need to hem!

The welcome banner!

Water bottle labels. These have a baby-themed nutritional label on the back.

Place cards. These can also be food labels for a buffet.

Favor boxes. These are about two inches cubed and are kind of a pain in the butt to assemble, but they are adorable once you're done!

Lastly, I made a baby-themed crossword puzzle. I can always customize this for clues specific to you and your family, just shoot me a message or email and we can discuss pricing.
