Graduation 2011

Following are some of my favorite designs from the 2011 graduation season.

One young man, of Scotch-Irish descent, who loves to travel.  I designed this announcement, using Celtic symbols and fonts, an envelope liner with the Irish poem:

May the road rise to meet you, the sun shine warm upon your face, the rain fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand.

Some of the cities and countries that this young man has visited were randomly placed within the poem.  Congratulations Kellam!

One lovely young lady from Georgia, who loves music, of all genres.  She asked for something whimsical in pewter and yellow and to include a quote from Ronald Regan, “Life is one grand, sweet song, so start the music…” .  It definitely matches her personality.  The belly band on this invitation, has the lyrics of “You Are My Sunshine”, a song that her father used to sing to her at bedtime when she was a child.  Congratulations Erin!

The next, beautiful young lady, recently graduated Summa Cum Laude, with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.  She requested simple elegance in blue and green, with the quote “When you are a nurse you know that everyday you will touch a life or a life will touch yours.”  Truly, befitting this senior’s personality.  Congratulations Jill!

50th Suprise Birthday Party

What could be more fun, than your family and friends, gathering together to  suprise you on your 50th Birthday?  A good time had by all!  This invitation was created in black thermography on quartz metallic,  with swarovski crystals dropping from the chandelier, the invitation back and envelope liner in black venetian swirl.  The outer envelope in black, with postage of a very young and beautiful Miss Kathryn Hepburn, in black and white with a black and white damask envelope wrap.
