DIY Christmas Gift Tags!

How cute are these gift tags! These are letterpress gift tags that I saw on Lucky Me! Blog and I just love them! Someone once told me that when giving a gift to someone you should spend about $2-$4 just for the wrapping or gift bag. Shouldn't it be enough that you are getting them a gift in the first place? Well, yes.... but going the extra mile on creative wrapping shows that person that you not only wanted to get them a gift, but that you took the time to personalize it and make it special. I have to say that I really do try to keep this in mind when giving gifts to someone. It just completes the package! DIY gift tags are the perfect thing to add to your Christmas gifts and they can be really inexpensive! All you need is card stock, ribbon and a hole punch! You can buy pre-cut shaped card stock or blank card stock gift tags at any local craft store. You can add the text by hand, stamps, rub-0ns, stickers, etc. and to top them off add some cute ribbon to tie the custom tag onto the box or bag. You can go all out by adding more embellishments or keep them simple and add a patterned ribbon for detail.

These tags are so easy to do as well! Pick out some cute patterned scrap book paper at your local craft store, get some matching yarn and just add the text by hand using a black or brown marker! Super easy... super cute... super cheap!

Lauren's Invites & Extras!




Lauren and her mom contacted me from Texas to design Lauren's wedding invitations and extras at her August wedding. I'm so in love with the green and brown colors and think that it really has an old fashion country feel that is classic. I also had the opportunity to design coordinating seating charts, table signs and name cards using the same concepts from the invitations. Lauren's mother, Kristy, found these amazing rustic brown iron frames that she put the table numbers in and placed on each table which is such an easy and beautiful way to display table signs. I just love the whole custom stationary package and how every detail was personalized to the unique event.

It's Fall!





So... it's officially fall! I must say that I'm more of a summer person, but I do love the fall... the colors, the trees, the weather! Here are some festive fall invitations that I designed for Amanda. When I first met with Amanda it was in the spring time so it was interesting coming up with concepts for a fall wedding. I must say that I'm in love with the color orange and think it's such a beautiful wedding color! I almost used orange in my own wedding colors and then last minute I changed my mind.... although my wedding was perfect, I do wish I would have Incorporated it into my colors! The concept that Amanda really wanted to use on her invitations was a tree so we designed a pine tree silhouette that really created that fall theme!


Many brides choose their wedding colors according to the time and location of their wedding. I love the idea of having the theme of your wedding match the seasonal colors of the date, but I encourage brides to think outside of the box and come up with some creative color pallets.

For example, take a fall wedding....


-traditional colors to use for fall weddings:

brown, red, burgundy, orange, tan, cream, yellow


-creative colors to use for a fall wedding:

plum purple, forest green, dark pink, navy, charcoal gray, gold


*Design tip* - use a combination of both traditional and creative fall wedding colors to create the perfect balance!

Shauna & Chris!





I met Chris and Shauna back at the first of the year and have been working with them all the way up to there beautiful event in Michigan a few weeks ago! Shauna has an amazing attention to detail and wanted something super unique for her wedding invitations. We incorporated a paisley design on the invites and insert cards and printed in a garnet red and gold ink. The colors meshed so perfectly with all the details of the inserts. My favorite thing about these invitations is the green reception cards. This was an idea that Shauna had to do little pictures to create a timeline for the evening events. I just love the added detail and personalization it adds!
Shauna and Chris, you guys where amazing to work with and I love your creativity! Thank you so much!

Lindsay & Jonny's Wedding!


Here are a few pictures from Lindsay & Jonny's wedding! Their colors where charcoal & saffron.... super hot colors for the year! I thought this design board would be nice to see how the invitations flowed with the rest of the decor! The floral design was done by the amazing Audrey with Studio Stems and awesome photography by Dustin Izatt with digital izatt.

For the invitations we did a charcoal scored pocket with a "vintage Hollywood glam" design printed in yellow on top of a light gray shimmer stock.

Thanks Lindsay! You where so much fun to work with!

Lindsi's Invites!




We designed Lindsi's invitations around her fall wedding she chose the colors: brown, deep red and ivory. For the pocket we went with a neutral campaign color and accented the outside of the pocket with a deep red ribbon wrap and initial seal. In the inside of the pocket we backed the invitation with a deep red shimmer stock and printed on an ivory shimmer stock in brown ink. Lindsi and Brandon are getting married at the beautiful and romantic Millcreek Inn and these invitations perfectly represent their classy fall affair! Thanks so much Lindsi and Brandon and best of wishes to you guys!

Chelsea's Invites!



Chelsea was so much fun to work with and her invites really show off her fun personality! For her invitation Chelsey wanted to do something not to traditional and really bright. We went with a hot pink custom score pocket that was accented with a green and white polka-dot ribbon for flair. We printed the invitations on white shimmery stock in black and matching apple green ink and backed them with a black linen stock. For the insert cards we added a paisley design for a little extra chicness! To seal the deal we printed a custom return address on the back flap of the eye catching hot pink envelopes! I love it when people do colored envelopes..... it just adds to the uniqueness and style of the event. Thanks Chelsea.... you are awesome!
