Front view of the invitation.
It was very exciting to meet this next couple in our new home and in my new office! Finally we were back in our own home with much excitement! After almost a year away, meeting clients anywhere we could, it was a blessing to have our own space back!
The brides vision of the wedding day was rustic, country. So we used a wheat theme, with the main colour being burgandy.
A vintage damask pattern graced the background of this beautiful stationery. Wheat adorned the front to give the card a country feel.

A beautiful image of the couple (photo credit: jeremyjamesphotography.ca) adorns the inside of this stationery with the ceremony information off to the right. The pocket makes things much simpler for guests as it keeps all the information together easily. Inside the pocket is all the details needed to get your guests to the right places at the right times.

Back of the cards with couples monogram.
Reverse of each card in the pocket had the couple’s monogram and a darker version of the damask pattern in the background.
A monogram decorates the back of each piece and gives an idea of the couples vision for their big day.
It was so great to meet and work with this couple and I wish them God’s blessings as they look forward to their wedding day!
All assembled, ready for pick-up!
This upcoming wedding is at the end of September. I look forward to posting more picures of these!
Scoring pearlized cardstock for a current project.
I am currently working on an invitation that will need a bit of handwork. Scoring the pearlized cardstock, as well as gluing a few items to the pearlized paper.

I have my workshop set up in the garage so the amazing Super 77 doesn’t become a super mess! Once things are set-up, working away at it is fairly quick, and I enjoy every bit even as particular as I am!

All set up at the workstation in the garage. Thank you dear hubby for helping me out!

My very helpful husband cleaned off the rolling workbench he made so I could move it where i needed it and set it up. I used the top to do all the finicky work and made a small area on the shelf below for spraying on the adhesive. A small styrofoam tray helped keep the stationery piece off the cardboard so i didn’t have to keep changing the paper underneath that I was spraying on.
I can’t wait to showcase these ones! Stay tuned for more pictures once this December wedding is closer.
Back of the wedding invitation.
I’ve been feeling the love of trees this past year! It is a popular invitation look, this one being birch trees with a light falling snow in the background. The couple had chosen a dark purple and white as their theme colours and it gave their invitation a rich feel. It was a simple layout with ceremony information on the front of the card and a pocket on the reverse side. Paired with that, the bride and groom also requested a brochure style program for the ceremony.

Inside of the ceremony program. Little details with birch trees at the top and wedding date at the bottom.
The program was printed in black/greyscale and it is a great cost effective option.
The final special touch: a personal monogram. For each custom set of stationery designed, I also put together a monogram that the bride and groom can use for all things wedding. This custom set was fun to design and assemble, and the bride was so great to work with! Stay tuned for another post 🙂
Wedding Invitation with flap in the back to stand it up.
I worked on these last summer for a beautiful fall wedding. The bride and groom had purple and apple green as the theme colours and they really loved the idea of having an autumn tree on their stationery. These were so fun to make and the bride and groom were excited with the final product. The invitation features a stand on the back so those who get an invitation can display it without it falling over. All the wedding day information is inside, you just have to pull on the green ribbon and voila! Inside were three cards with the ceremony and reception information as well as a reply card.

About two weeks before the wedding, the bride sent me all the information needed to put the ceremony program together. It is a pamphlet style program, which keeps things very simple during the service. I loved the little details, the two birds and the little heart falling from the tree, which gave the stationery a whimsical feel.

I am definitely not an experienced blogger as you can see by my continual procrastination in updating blog posts. However I did finally decide it is time for a new blog and hope with that, i can update more frequently! Enjoy!
