A Very Fairy Sweet Sixteen!!! February 23 2015
No matter what the celebration is, the invitation will be an introduction to the imagination of the host. When we sat down with Jessica, we were shocked at how specific and creative her vision was. Every element of design was exactly how she imagined it - fairy inspired magical garden with flowers and vines. This fairy tale event did not leave anything out. The unique liner, 3 diamonds and 2 layer response card came together to become one of our most creative invitations.
This detail of the invitation shows the 3 diamonds that were placed on the invite. In this image you can see that the invitation was laid out with 3 layer metallic layers and many colors that were all the same tone. Using magenta to highlight the event and the birthday girl's name. The event information was colored purple to blend in with its surroundings. Below is another detail image.
Each diamond is individually hand glued. This entire event used over 200 diamonds.
Above is the 2 layer response card with a pink envelope. Mimicking the invitation with the ornate gate frame. Digho provides the addressing service which means all envelopes are addressed to the guest and response envelopes have the receiver address. This allows all the fronts to be the same, creating a unified look.
To keep the design consistent, the thank you card has some of the art elements.
The Beautiful Generosity of Love... January 22 2015
The beautiful couple were embracing their second marriages and wanted to just celebrate their happiness with all their friends and family. This was our first and only wedding that the invitation asks for no gifts. They requested a simple invitation that would hold all the information in one combined card. We came up with the idea of an 3 fold accordion invitation. Each flap will have a touch of information eliminating separate multiple cards. Keeping the style of the invitation elegant and traditional. Their colors were green and yellow with a touch of cream. Above you can see the entire invitation with the response card and all the envelopes.
To show a traditional style we used a capital U monogram throughout the invitation. It is ghosted in the background and used as an element of design. Ornate glyphs also were added as accent. You can see a detail above of the first flap with the couples and ceremony information.
The second flap gave the reception information.
The third flap was a personal note from the couple to express their thanks. It is here that they were able to share their thoughts and give the guests a reminder of how wonderful they are by not asking for gifts.
Each tri fold flap had 2 layers of cover stock to highlight the green and frame the design.

Our bundle of joy September 25 2014
It feels like everyone we know including one of our own is expecting a bundle of joy! Working with couples during their wedding planning is always awesome, but when we find out that they are expecting, it’s pure excitement! Watching a couple turn into a family is a beautiful thing and we are lucky we get to experience that.
When a bundle comes into our lives and brings us love and joy, the first thing we want to do is show the world!! There is no better way to show off your beautiful new baby than with a completely unique and custom announcement. They are wonderful to send and exciting to receive.
Above you can see many different styles and shapes of baby announcements. We specialize in using a real photo that we place on layered paper to give the baby image the recipient’s complete attention.
We can make announcements with 1 through 5 layers, having colors and designs going throughout the layers. Shapes are usually square or rectangle. Themes and typography usually go hand in hand to compliment the family style.
Also, in the photo above are envelopes with a single layer of paper that allows the announcement design to peek out of the front of the envelope.
