with a country heart!  Wynne, Jr. is an executive of a Texas transportation company and Lacey is a corporate attorney in the energy industry.  When Lacey first approached me about designing her wedding invitations, she had a very definite vision of vintage roses for their December wedding.  As beautiful as the original design was, we worked together to create a more refined design to reflect this more formal, black tie event.  Every attention to detail was given to this wedding suite, which included a Save The Date, Invitation, RSVP, Information Card, Rehearsal Dinner Invitations, Wedding Programs, Welcome Bags for all of the out of town guests that included a Welcome Card, Custom Designed Map with local points of interest as well as custom Hanging “Do Not Disturb” Door Tags.

After a lovely wedding ceremony, Wynne, Jr. and Lacey treated their guests to a beautiful reception at the Perot Museum.  Many blessing to you both!

He Said, She Said…

August 17, 2016

“We love simple things:  outdoor adventures, skateboarding, the city, finding new restaurants, people watching and Call of Duty Zombies (which actually strengthens our team work and communications skills)”

This is one project that is very personal as the groom to be is our son.  Jenny and Jacob met in College Station, TX  where Jenny was attending Texas A&M.  Upon first meeting, Jacob said he knew immediately that this beautiful girl would be his wife.  They are both amazing people with a strong love for their families and their community.  Since all of our families live outside of Dallas, this Save the Date was their introduction to their extended families of the person they intended to marry, so it was important to share a little insight into how they met and feel about one another.  The Save the Date was a tri-fold 5 1/2″ square card on Neenah White Pearl.

Their engagement photos were taken by Absolute Photography of Dallas www.absolutephoto.biz in some of their favorite locations:  Deep Ellum and the Dallas Arts District.

70 and Sensational

August 17, 2016

Recently, one of my clients in New York asked me to design an invitation for her mother-in-laws 70th Birthday Party.  During our consultation she expressed that she would like to have something with a floral border.  While designing the original invitation, my client found a picture on Pinterest of an invitation that she liked and asked if I could design something similar, so I went about hand drawing a similar border then uploading it into my design software to color.  Foiling is normally done on a printing press with plates made similar to letterpress and actually stamped under high heat and is extremely expensive, especially for a small run.  I had recently came across a DIY foiling technique that I thought that I would try for this project.  It turned out beautifully!  Time intensive, but beautiful!! It is always a pleasure to work with repeat clients to share in a small way the milestones, weddings, births, birthdays and events that are celebrated throughout their lives.  

I chose to print on stock and envelopes from my Envelopments line called PC 100 Kraft.  It was a perfect match. I will also share with you the original design that I created before this final design was chosen.  The “seventy” cake topper, which was a first for me, challenging, but thrilled with how it turned out.

We flying the first class
Up in the sky
Poppin’ champagne
Livin’ my life
In the fast lane
And I won’t change
For the glamorous, oh the flossy flossy…

One party that I was truly jelly of!  These girls enjoyed a truly glamorous weekend at the Palazzo Hotel in Las Vegas;  dinners at Katsuya, spa at the Encore Hotel, luncheon at Giada, a beautiful champagne lingerie shower, dinner at STK and an evening of gambling, drinks and shenanigans!  WOW!!!

Hello Monday!! Much love and best wishes to the bride to be!

Spread Your Wings

January 26, 2016

and prepare to fly, for you have become a butterfly – I have been fortunate enough to create the Birthday invitations for this special little girl since she was two years old.  I have watched her entertain at her Minnie Mouse Clubhouse, explore the wonders of the Perot Museum‘s dinosaur collection in her finest Princess gown, to floating with butterflies at the Texas Discovery Gardens Butterfly House.

It is always a delight and wonder to see the excitement and sense of adventure this little one’s mom creates for her to share with their family and friends.

A Lifetime of Adventure

November 10, 2015

When I was approached by The da Vinci School in Dallas, Texas to design the invitations to their 2016 Wonderland Gala, I was very honored by the trust placed in me.  The da Vinci School is a non-profit organization with a well rounded learning oriented program with emphasis on science that was founded in 1987.  The Gala is one of their largest fund raising events that is held every year to provide for various school improvements, equipment, learning materials and to increase the general fund.  The theme for the 2016 Gala is “da Vinci in Wonderland”.  

With a theme in hand, the design process began.  The final invitation is one of my most favorite designs to date.  I wish the school well and look forward to a continued relationship in the future.

What a great evening shared with good friends and family at a family farm in Shreveport, Louisiana.  The bride pulled off a very lovely outdoor Vintage Chic Farm Wedding in October, complete with a crisp autumn breeze, shrimp po-boys, Zapp’s VooDoo chips, jambalaya with andouille sausage, great beer, wine, cider and dancing until the sun came up.  Cheers to Caitlyn and Tyler!!

Fairy Tales Do Come True

July 22, 2015

I was so incredibly excited to create invitations for two very special people. All the excitement leading up to their special day was electrifying. From the Rehearsal Dinner Celebration to the moment Kelly and Cameron said their I Do’s in front of their friends and family, you could feel the love that brought them together. The Princess got her Prince at a lovely castle and it was nothing short of a Grand Ball Reception that followed.
