We were contacted by Ameisha to do return address labels for the invitations to a bridal shower she was throwing. The wedding colors are light pink and black & white damask, so she asked us to incorporate those into the label. Here is the finised product of what we came up with for her, the actual label measured 2 inches round.

Mocha & Sage Damask

Last night we listed our "Mocha and Sage Damask Custom Wedding Invitation Suite". Boy is that a mouthful. I think this is one of our favorite designs. I truly enjoyed making this one and I said to the husband, "Husband, next time we get married, our colors are going to be brown and green and we are totally having this invite". Husband just groaned, as he does every time I tell him "next time we get married". Which I tell him frequently.

Here she is.

Dana saw our Last Name Monograms and was interested in purchasing one for her upcoming wedding. Her colors are chocolate brown, ivory and coral. She was a pleasure to work with and this is her resulting monogram.

Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there. Especially to my own Daddy and my husband. My daughters made adorable cards for their awesome (step)father and are now sitting on the floor making cards for their Pop Pop. We don't have a whole heck of a lot planned for today, we're just going to enjoy some quality family time.

Enjoy your weekend!

Notecards for Jane!

My mom wanted me to design a set of small notecards for our dear Aunt Jane. I wanted something clean and cute and know that her favorite color is red. I sent several examples to my mom to choose from and this one was her favorite.

After making these and seeing how cute the finished product worked up, this design evolved into our listing for Personalized Notecards available in several different designs.

(Note: My mom reports that she printed these using Avery 5315 blank cards and they turned out great.)

I'm feeling lovey dovey.

So I made another little quickie card and this time it's all about the love. Just a sweet little "I love you" is all you need to get the point across sometimes.

While I was at and still feeling the love, I also whipped up a damask wedding invitation. I can tell by my views and such that damask is still a pretty hot market, so I'm rolling with it. I made samples of this guy in 5 different color combos, but as always, this one is fully customizable. I like it. My hunky husband says it's "just lovely".

Good morning! Today is my best friend's birthday. I just cannot believe that we've been BFFs (best friends forever, duh) for about 16 years now. She has definitely been there with me through good times and bad and I absolutely love her!

Happy Birthday to you, Shanny!

Because it is Shannon's birthday, we decided to list a new birthday "quickie card" today. I was working on something yesterday, but my husband gave his feedback on it and it wasn't good. So that was scrapped. And now we have this. Just like the Father's Day cards, this little cutie also comes with a template for a coordinating envelope. Tah dah!

Father's Day

Father's Day is only a little over a week away. Do you have a card for the special Dad in your life? Yesterday we listed what we're calling "quickie cards" just in time for Father's Day. Quickie cards are little A2 sized (5.5x4.25) cards that come with their own coordinating envelope template. Print both out, fold, sign a little message for Dad and VOILA! No standing in line at the Walgreens. No being bumped into in the card aisle at Target. Simple & quick...quickie cards.

We have 4 different designs for sale. Here are two.

Wrap Around Labels

For our wedding in November, we used Stardream Metallic envelopes in Ruby. Our invites were, of course, DIY. I love my trusty Canon Pixma MP470, but I just wasn't sure she could handle printing a bajillion addresses on to those fabulously sparkling envelopes. And there was no way I was hand addressing them all with my chicken scratch handwriting. So, what's a girl to do? Wrap around labels! That's what!

Here are some not-so-great photos of completed envelopes with wrap around labels from our wedding.



We just listed some wrap around labels in the shop last night. Right now we have 4 different damask patterns to choose from.


Be on the lookout for another set to be listed any day now. The new set will be more "plain jane" than these snazzy damask labels! Here's a sneak preview...

We were contacted by Gillian to design a monogram that would go with the invitations she already had. The idea was based on a cirlce with 2 initials inside. Here are some of the designs we came up with for her.

Thanks, Gillian!

Megan recently purchased our m1 monogram for her August wedding. She was our first customer! As our little way of saying "thanks", we threw in an additional monogram at no charge.

Thanks Megan!
