600 and counting!

Standard

invite 1This is an invitation that I designed for my friend Kristie’s daughter. She wanted something to reflect her lace dress with swirls and pearls. The belly band was embossed with a Mr & Mrs embossing folder and the inserts and invitation also were embossed.  Pearls were added to the invitation and belly band. The jacket provided a place to hold every thing together including a photo of the Bride & Groom.

Originally Kristie was going to make them herself. My husband and I were in the states in February for our Daughters marriage and I helped Kristie get every thing she needed to make these, assuring her that she could do this herself with my help via Facetime and me having the typesetting set up for her. What was I thinking???? When I realised she was making 600 invitations! That is a huge task even for me who is very experienced. So my lovely husband suggested I fly over and help get them made. In the end I was there for 8 weeks and my poor husband regretted suggesting it! I admit that it was a little long…….. in my defence my reasoning was sound, make the invitations, spend some time with my daughter, go to the wedding, celebrate my grand daughters birthday and celebrate Kristie and my birthday (same day)    In the end we made over 600 invitations! The whole family helped and it was lots of fun! I have a little video of Kristie’s boys  using the cuttlebug, it was hilarious, unfortunately I can’t up load it on this version of wordpress.

Horse and Carriage cheque book style

Standard

frontimg_1498rsvp-pageinsideKirsty wanted the features of a pocket fold invitation but as her sister’s wedding invitation was a pocket fold she wanted to have something completely different.  It was important to include information such as accommodations, directions and a wishing well along with providing a response card and envelope. This cheque book style invitation allows room for many pages and the back cover holds the response card and return envelope. The directions page also includes perforation.  A lovely combination of lace, ribbon and embossing.

Elegant Pocket fold Invitation

Standard

frontChelsea wanted a red, black and white theme for her invitations and  choose  White  for her Invitation along with White inclusions featuring embossing with the added touch of pearls and tied together with a black Satin ribbon. I’ve taken this standard pocket folder and tweaked it a little by adding some embossing to the front flap giving it a more elegant look.

Fairy Tale Princess Invitation

Standard

                                                                                                     Recently I visited the  beautifull Paronella Park in   Innisfail, Queensland.  A perfect venue for a fairytale wedding!   http://www.paronellapark.com.au/

This pocket fold style features  embossing to the  front section, a ‘glass slipper’ tied with  a  silver cord  serves as a belly band. Once opened a beautiful invitation is revealed!  A ‘Tiara’ style  diamante embellishment at the top creates a romantic princess feel  and adds bling!  To the left  a corner style pocket holds the inclusions together nicely.    

This invitation combines both style and elegance creating  a beautiful theme for a fairy tale wedding.   

Alternatively I’ve used an organza ribbon to hold the  pocket fold together which creates a different look to this versatile invitation.
