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.

Peacock Passion

Standard

peacock passionRebecca wanted a simple invitation to reflect the theme of their outdoor wedding set in the beautiful Sunshine Coast Hinterland and this cute little invitation offers lots of options!

With room for multiple layers to include all information necessary. Hidden behind the beautiful Peacock feather pattern paper are 2 layers, the Invitation and a wishing well poem followed by a longer layer which holds directions and information for the ceremony venue and reception details. And at the very bottom their names. The final Layer is a gorgeous metallic purple card finished off with a diamante.

Comprising of 5 layers  in total, this simple but elegant invitation is held together with a piece of 3mm purple  satin ribbon and silver cord giving a modern feel.

Here I’ve used Designer Metallic  “Peacock Passion” along with Curious Metallic “Violette” and Glamour Puss “Diamond White” ipaper.

This design can be adapted to many different themes making  it a very versatile design.

All bundled up

Standard

 The design of this invitation came about from a photo of a cake my bride fell in love with. She wanted something that would reflect the theme of the cake.

 She wanted something mainly Red but also including the black and white. The belly band with the pearl accent gives it a funky modern feel. Embossing to the side of the invitation and  flap of the envelope tie’s  the theme together nicely to create a wow factor. A Triangle shaped menu  and place card with embossing and  pearl accents were chosen  for the tables.

A country feel

Standard

Darren & Carolynn Ye Haw! This invitation suite sets the theme for a country style wedding.  The pocket is a perfect way to keep the Information card along with a wishing well poem, R.S.V.P card and reply envelope together. The  use of a Belly Band and address label adds to  it’s vintage rustic charm.

Simply Stunning

Standard

This stunning invitation with its black embossed jacket and embossed flip style invitation wasn’t what Rhea had in mind when she came to see me, however when she saw this design she fell in love with the beautiful embossing to the jacket and the invitation.  By adding embossing to the top of the inside pages added a little something extra along with just a touch of bling!  

Simply Elegant

Standard

 Ellissa wanted a very Elegant invitation which would reflect the style of her gown.

I’ve used a combination of both smooth card and metallic paper coupled with a  pearl embellishment and  double-sided satin ribbon to give this invitation a truly exquisite look.  The invitation inside is a flip book style.

The embossed theme was carried through in her Seating plan, napkins,  favours / bomboniere, guest book and Table numbers.

She also added some colour along with the deep cream.
