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!
