Client Spotlight: Jennifer & Nathaniel

Jennifer is a client who found us on etsy. This is one of my favorite designs because it features such an original motif in the background, and this wonderful paisley satin ribbon which is so versatile because it can go with so many different color combinations. The pocketfold is in the color emerald, with a bronze mat and quartz invitation. These colors most resemble the ever popular color combination of teal and chocolate brown. Enjoy Jennifer, and thanks again!

Design Spotlight: Menu's - to layer or not to layer

I've received a few questions about layering, so I decided to do this side by side comparison to help in making a decision. So this is the same menu in 2 different variations. On the left is a single metallic menu, while the right menu is accompanied by an additional layer. Both menu's feature the same simple and classic design, while the layered menu gives a little more depth to any tablescape. Either of these menu's would go great with a black tie affair, or add a bit of color to make these work for your event.

Design Spotlight: Pattern Paper Galore!

So with this layered invitation I used an opal metallic mat, an additional patterned mat, an again the opal metallic stock for the invitation. A creative flourish finishes off the invitation to give it a little pop. The patterned paper used for this invitation mat has many components, and lends to many different color options for fonts. We chose to use red, but green, yellow, or even beige could easily work as well.

I hope you enjoyed this spotlight, stay tuned for more!

Client Spotlight: Lauren & Jonathan

Oh how I love patterned paper! This invitation consits of a metallic mat, a green and white patterened designed cardstock, and linen invitation. The response card also follows the same motif.

Using patterened paper can add more depth to your invitation suite, and makes your invitation much different from the rest. We'll be introducing new designs in the coming days featuring different types of patterned paper to tempt your pallet...stay tuned!
