Amy's Baby Shower

I was really excited when Amy asked me to make her baby shower invites! She was one of my first wedding clients, and I've had a chance to work with her on so many fun paper projects.

I was inspired by the alphabet & number art prints and the striped bedding pattern that will be used in the baby's nursery (note: the baby's gender is a surprise!), and I combined the two elements within the invitation design. The color scheme is my favorite is so fresh and unique, and perfect for a boy or girl.

Something New: Bridal Shower Invitations

I worked with Jessica's future mother-in-law, Leslie, on her panel shower invitations. The shower has a "something old, new, borrowed, blue" theme, and I used a mix of different typefaces to make this a feature. Leslie also wanted to include a photo of the carousel at Jessica's wedding reception site. The carousel was built in the early 1900's and recently restored, and the photo has blue, so it fits the theme perfectly!

Marisa & Sean : Wedding Invitations

I created these invitations for my sister-in-law and future brother-in-law, Marisa and Sean! They are having a destination wedding in Sarasota, Florida. Marisa wanted the invitations to have a classic style, and she sent me an image of her gorgeous bouquet for inspiration.

I incorporated a coordinating floral illustration in shades of peach, azalea pink, burgundy, and sage green, and used a mix of different ivory shimmer and textured cardstocks with champagne paper accents.
