All the fun of the fair


bunting abunting cThis folded rustic invitation fits into a c6 envelope and is  held together with bakers twine. Hidden between the folds are a wishing well card along with an envelope for the tear off R.S.V.P card, with room for other inclusions.   The envelopes feature a subtle touch of colour with the bunting. The save the date card and menu also feature the bunting design.


Simple folded Invitations


Kelly wanted a sample using  white, silver and purple.  Something simple with roses and rings. 

Using a trifold design  I started with a very simple layout and then stepped it up a little by adding the purple swirls. Here I’ve kept it simple but you could really bling up those swirls!

After consultation Kelly decided that she wanted something completely different, however she has used elements of the rings and roses for part of her ensemble. (More on that after the invitations have been mailed out) 

Cream and black


Caz wanted a simple invitation with modern clean lines.  She chose cream and black which was the theme of her dress.  Although not shown in the photo, she chose a black envelope with a cream label. The flap of the envelope was embossed with the same pattern used for her clear bombonaries/ wedding favours.  I’ve used the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder and marshmallow card from ipaper.

Fairytale invitation # 2


This is a take 2 on Bec’s Fairytale invitation. I’ve made 2 match book style invitations. The first one I’ve used the Cryogen White for both the cover and the page.  The second invitation I’ve used clear Acetate for the cover and Cryogen White for the page. The beauty of this invitation is that extra pages can be added for extra information and depending on the look the bride is going for the pages could be different lengths or they  could be all the same.  A different colour could be used for the page of the Acetate invitation giving it a different look again. If I wanted to be energetic I could cover the embossed coach with my Zig two-way pen and then cover it with dazzling diamonds, IF I was energetic. lol    Both have been tied together with fine silver cord and have beads knotted at the ends, however thin satin ribbon could be used or organza ribbon tied into a simple bow .  Oh the possibilities!!!!  


A French Influence








 As the venue for the reception is in a french restaurant, Julie wanted to add a french influence to her black and white invitations.  

The black envelopes with white labels and embossed flaps create a sense of anticipation. The front of  the trifold folder  establishes the formal tone of the event  by using a formal font with a touch of bling.  Once opened the delicate black and white back ground matting creates the french feel Julie was looking for.

I’ve continued the theme through with the place cards, Menu’s and Seating plan using the Chandelier to tie all the pieces together.

Keeping Secrets!


A few months ago I received a call from my niece.  She asked me if  I would make her Wedding Invitations however there was a but! A BIG BUT AT THAT!  It was a Surprise Wedding and I had to  promise not to say a word!  BIG ASK!!!!!  On several  occasions I almost innocently spilled the beans to my mother.  I almost said ‘Oh I’m working on Donna’s invitations today’  Luckily I was able to stop myself in time!!!  So 2 months on, many secret phone calls and e-mails later LOL the invitations are finished and have been mailed!   

I really enjoyed making these (I know I say that every time!)  Donna wanted something classic but with a modern twist keeping it simple.

Rain Forest


Tricia  is an environmentalist so was wanting a natural look for her invitations, as the ceremony was to be held in a beautiful garden filled with waterfalls and palms .  I used natural parchment card with raffia on this trifold invitation.  The design was simple but effective.   The fronds were sprayed with glimmer mist creating dimension and  resulting in a very subtle shine which  lifted the invitation while still maintaining its natural feel.
