Courtney's Invites

These pictures totally do not do these invites for Courtney justice! These invites have to be my favorite from the fall! The colors, the paper, the ink, the leafs.... there are so many details that went into creating these invites and so much time.... but that's what we do at Pink Piggy.... the satisfaction of our clients and uniqueness of our invites comes first! I did two different designs for Courtney, one for her invitations and one for her announcements. This is a great option for brides who want to do something really creative for their invites and a toned down version for their announcements, this is also a great way to keep costs down and allow for more of a budget for the invites. The pocket that Courtney chose was bronze with an orange/copper leaf design swirled over the entire pocket. Inside, the invites where printed on a cream shimmery paper and printed with perfectly matching Orange/copper ink . The pocket was sealed with a copper leaf! {LOVE THOSE!}

For the announcement we used a bronze four corner fold pouch with the same copper and cream paper inside. We also incorporated the same leaf design from the invitations. The announcements where topped of with sealing wax and a maple leaf seal! Courtney- you and your family are awesome! Love your creativeness and willingness to try something new! Thanks!

Sneak Peak...

This is just a little sneak peak of one of the Christmas cards I'm working on this season! This is the Duke family! Joy told me that she loved polka dots and ribbon.... so I designed this cute photo card that is darling..... but that's not all..... they are going to go in a green shimmer pocket that will have a red with green polka dot ribbon tied around the pocket! Pockets and ribbon are such a great way to make your Christmas cards different from all the other photo cards that people send out! Make sure you check back to see the full design with the pocket!

I only have a few days left to take new Christmas orders.... its not to late though... so get in contact with me ASAP if you want some custom cards that are sure to brighten up the holidays!

Andria's Invites & Guest Book!

Andria has been one of my most laid back clients this fall and so awesome to work with! Andria's wedding colors are red, black and white and she wanted to incorporate these colors into her invites. We went with a black landscape pocket that is perfect to organize and hold her insert cards and engagement picture. For the invite card I added a simple black border and for a little extra modern touch we added a black & white polka dot ribbon. I love using ribbon with invitations... I think that it adds to the design by creating different layers and textures. When picking a ribbon it is very important for me to keep in mind the entire concept of the invitations including colors and printed designs. When I'm designing an invitation that is more on the simple side like Andria's invites with no designs on the card, adding a ribbon with a design on it such as polka dots really ties the whole invite together! For invitations with graphic designs on them it is better to choose a solid ribbon in order to not draw away from the designs.

Check out how cute Andria's custom sign in book turned out! These books are so great because each page is custom designed with my clients engagement pictures and each page is bound together into a book that you can keep forever! And what a great way to show off more of your pics at your wedding! These books can come in many different cover colors! Contact me for more info on custom sign in books!

Bailey Family Pics!

This is the one that we are going to use for our Christmas cards!

I'm so stinkin' excited to show off my new family pics that we just had done by Jason McGrew Photography! I wanted to get some pics of my cute husband and kids, Rico and Mini, for our Christmas cards we are sending out this year. Jason did such an amazing job and I couldn't be happier! We had so much fun and the dogs loved it too! We always joke around and say that Mini (the little brown one) thinks she is a princess and she always wants to be the center of attention so this was her photo shoot to show off just how cute she is! Jason, I just want to say thank you so much for the opportunity to work with such a professional and for creating such amazing work! I LOVE LOVE them!

PS.... check out this really cool slide show that Jason put together of our photo shoot! Click here to view the slide show!

Tara's Invite!

These Invites where designed for such a cute girl names Tara! I loved working with her because it seemed like both our ideas just clicked and we were able to create these awesome invites! Black and red are really popular fall/winter wedding colors so I really wanted to do something that would make her invites be unique and stand out with all the other red invites that people will be getting. Tara also picked more of a maroon red instead of a traditional red which was such a great color. We designed these pocket invites with the idea that she wanted to do a photo strip for her pics which is really what makes this invite so great! Creativity and design are a must in coming up with that truly unique invite.... but what really makes them look even better (which most brides don't think about) is how the invite is organized and presented. This invite is a perfect example of a well presented invite with all the information organized and put together to compliment the design and colors. Congrats Tara!

Tea Party!

Becki came to me with the cutest idea for a bridal shower invite. She wanted to do a tea party for the bridal show and wanted the invites to look like a tea party! How cute is that! We used a really cute "green tea" color pocket to hold the insert card. On the card I designed a cute tea cup and saucer to go along with the theme of the shower. The card was printed on a cream shiny paper and backed with a light pink shiny paper to really make it stand out and look girlie! I just love these colors and love the tea party idea! Customized bridal shower invites are such a great way to create a fun theme for a shower. The possibilities are endless! Thanks so much Becki for letting me design these "oh so cute" invites and thanks again for all the referrals!

Guest Books

Here is the guest book that I designed for Brianne! Her invites were so cute so I incorporated the same style and feel as the invites into this brown and orange guest book. The book above is an 8x8 canvas brown book with an orange ribbon to add a little extra style to it! Pink Piggy offers more than just invitations and announcements. We also do custom designed guest books, which are really cute and so much more personable, than those white books that you get from the store! You can choose from many different color books and sizes. Inside I design photo pages with pictures you provide of you and your fiancée. These are so much fun because your guests can look through the book and see your pics as well as have a place for them to sign it. Inquire about these creative books and get more info by sending me an e-mail!

Brianne Invites

This seasonal orange and brown invite has to be one of my favorites to design and I absolutely love the way they turned out! This invite was for Brianne who along with her mother have been one of my favorite clients to work with! Brianne and I came up with some really great ideas and it was fun to feed off of each other. Her colors where orange, cream, and brown which were perfectly suited for her fall wedding. We printed on cream shimmer paper with brown ink and accents of orange for the names. The invitation was backed with an orange shimmer card stock that matched the orange band around the brown pocket. These custom created pockets are a great way to organize invitations with lots of inserts and as well as being super stylish. We livened up the insert cards with an orange fall leaf design which really brought the look and feel of the colors and season together. The invite was topped off with a monogram seal which really sealed the deal! I just love it and have enjoyed the design process so much! Thanks Brianne.... you are so cute!

Baby Maddox

This is a baby shower invite that I did for Jamie and her soon to be baby boy Maddox, which I just love that name! For this invited I used a light blue shimmer paper printed with brown ink. The card was backed with a brown and blue polka-dot paper and placed in a matching polka-dot pocket. It was all topped off with a light blue ribbon to create a really cute and trendy baby shower invite.
