Katie and Mike had a beautiful wedding, flawlessly coordinated by In Awe Weddings. They were married in a church and then held their reception at Troon Country Club. Katie chose a big 7×7 pocketfold invitation in chocolate brown with a gold and ivory patterned backer. We used the pattern in her menus and for her favor boxes. She had beautiful ribbon tied programs as well. Thanks to Jennifer Bowen for these wonderful images (the ones of the invitation below are from my phone). This wedding was so fun for me because the bride understood the value of well-coordinated paper products!

One of our (In Awe Weddings) recent weddings had spectacular decor. The ballroom at the Boulders was draped in white fabric and lit with special lighting and snowflakes, creating a magical winter wonderland. So in order to set the tone, Dane picked a light silver pocket from Envelopments, and we used snowflake artwork and Swarovski crystals to make them sparkle. We added a touch of light blue to add interest and color. All of the papers were shimmery and wonderful. We designed round menus and placed them under clear glass chargers.
Twin Lens documentary photographers captured incredibly amazing photos of the day, and they were nice enough to take some of the invitations as well. It is always a pleasure to work with them.
Thanks to EME Photography for the beautiful photos! Julie and JD were married at the Montelucia Resort in Paradise Valley. Julie wanted everything to reflect a vintage Hollywood feeling. It was coordinated by the amazing, hard-working Sandy Walker of In Awe Weddings. We designed some fun signs, programs, folded menus, beautiful place cards which went in jeweled frames, a seating chart board and thank you signs. Julie and JD also chose a black invitation pocket with flourishes that we carried throughout the entire suite of paper products and signs for the wedding.
I love Christmas! I love checking the mail every day to see the beautiful Christmas cards from friends and family. It is Fall (well hopefully after this weekend, the triple digit temps will go down here in AZ) and that means it is time to take family portraits. Whether you will have your photos taken by a pro or you will take them yourself, you will want a good one for your Holiday cards. I have clients that love sending cards before Thanksgiving, while some send them for New Year’s. December is a crazy month, so I highly recommend an early start. I included a preview of a couple of my designs. We can create an elaborate layered card, a tri-fold card with multiple photos, mini photo albums, or a simple and cost-effective custom photo card.
A huge thanks to Emily of EME Photography for the photos for my Christmas card samples!
One of my favorite elementary school memories was creating boxes for our Valentine’s Day Party. I loved using shoe boxes because they could hold a lot of cards and candy. Valentine’s Day is the only day that allows the use of pink and red at the same time. So, I’m mixing them while I can! I designed some 3.5×5 Valentines for you to send to your friends and loved ones. I’ve had people telling me that time slipped away from them and they were unable to send Christmas cards. There is still plenty of time to order and send Valentines. These are small, economical, and much more fun than the ones that come in a cardboard box.
If you want any custom designs done, feel free to ask!
