When you do stationery and one of your family members or friends gets engaged, you usually have the pleasure of designing their wedding materials. And some of those clients can be the most fun to work with because they generally trust your design eye and know you’re going to produce something amazing for them. Often times, it’s a chance to try something new, create something different and dream up[...]
I'm hopping on a plane to Florida this afternoon to celebrate my sister-in-law's upcoming wedding (first trip away from my little man :( ) but I wanted to share my latest post for The Budget Savvy Bride! This month I shared the perfect font pairings for your wedding menus. Take a look at the font pairings I chose: Loving that middle font! Not only are these great for your menu, you can use[...]
If you're new here, you may not know that I write a monthly column on The Budget Savvy Bride sharing my favorite inexpensive font pairings for your wedding invitations, should you choose to DIY them instead of hire someone to do them for you. I have a wonderful time each month choosing the main fonts and pairing them with a complimentary font, and it often leads to me buying at least one new favor[...]
If you're like me, you love giving (and getting!) gift cards - I like knowing that I can buy someone their favorite coffee at Starbucks or the mug they've at Anthropologie but haven't told anyone about. What I don't love is those cardboard sleeves that come with them that most stores (with the exception of Anthro.. helloooo adorable gift cards!). We're fixing that problem today with a new [...]
Last year we watched a documentary on Henry Ford and became obsessed with him, so when I found this perfect quote from him, I knew I had to use it at Holden's Little Lumberjack first birthday party (pics coming soon!). I'm having 20 of these printed and will be giving a few away a little bit closer to Christmas, and then I'm going to have a letterpress plate made for this and start practici[...]
You know that thing where you find something lovely and then you want to order it in every color and make everyone around you order some too? That's how I felt after I got my first package from Bellame Ribbon Co. I did a styled shoot back in September with Lindsay from Chevrons & Champagne and Sarah Sunstrom Photography and as I was styling the invitation suite I designed, Lindsay pulle[...]
Don't you just love the vintage botanical wedding vibe that is trending right now? I'm just wrapping up some custom invitations for a bride with vintage botanical prints and I'm smitten by them. I also just worked on a wedding inspiration board for My Wedding Favors that features botanical wedding details. Dying over all that gorgeous greenery! Check out My Wedding Favors for the full po[...]
Back in 2011 I was obsessed with all things Anthropologie and thought for sure that I was going to run a successful DIY blog. Fast forward to today and basically the only thing that's changed is I now work full time for myself and know that I'll never be a DIY goddess, but I sure do love to share a DIY post every now and then. Back then, I created an Anthropologie Inspired DIY Guide and I g[...]
Have I told you my vow renewal dreams? If not, it's to renew my vows on my 10 year anniversary in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. Me in a BHLDN gown, my husband in something dapper as hell and our little man Holden right there with us. Oh, and someone to photograph the whole thing. Until then (we just hit year six in August), I shared some fun font ideas for your national park wedd[...]
