Maggie's Baby Shower

So to break up the monotony of posting invitations all the time, I thought I would share with you some other things that have been going on. When I created my sister's baby shower invitations, they had kind of a modern/contemporary feel to then. For her shower, I wanted it to be very soft and girly.

Here are some of pics of the flowers and decor.

This is my mom, and of course my son who makes a regular appearance on this blog. Yes, his outfit matches the decor, not a coinkydink.

Blue and Gold Paisley Invitations

For this project, I had the opportunity to work with Ana Skidmore of Twofoot Creative. Her bride was heading to India for several weeks, and we had to pull these together in a matter of 3 weeks!

Dana was fabulous to work with, because she knew exactly what she wanted, a paisley design and a stylized Ganesha. She is also very conscious of paper waste and the environment. We used recycled paper, envelopes and minimal paper pieces within the suite.

We went with a beautiful cobalt blue and gold thermography, which I love! (Enlarge the photo, so you can really see the detail.)

Birds and Flowers Wedding Invitation

Jen's invitations are some of the prettiest invitations I have done all year. She really liked the thickness and softness of the cotton stock in a natural color. These were both flat printed in a soft pink, then run a second time with gold thermography.

The invitation was printed on both sides and I love the Robert Frost quote that she chose.

This suite included the invitation, response card, map and accommodations and timeline.

Cooking Theme - Bridal Shower

This summer is an exciting one. My sister is pregnant, which means I get to be an Auntie soon, and My brother-in-law is getting married in September, which means I gain ANOTHER sister! Nicole is a wonderful girl and we can't wait for her to become part of the Myers' clan. :)

We are hosting a cooking themed, bridal shower for her at the house in August and of course, I did the invitations for it! I went pretty literal with the design, and even included a recipe card for guests to write their favorite recipe on and give to Nicole.

My favorite part of the whole thing is the envelopes. I love the oversized address printing and everything on an angle. Also, the stamps! Who doesn't love Katherine Hepburn. I can't believe how lucky I got at the post office. They matched the design perfectly.
