Just a couple of days early, but since the 1st falls on a weekend, I wanted to post early. Here’s to a fabulous May for all of you!

This is what Tiffany described to me as her theme adding in gold, black, red and drama! (And lots of it). I loved Tiffany’s energy from the minute she walked into my studio and I knew I had met probably one of the most energetic brides ever! Add in her mom’s energy and it was a double dose of pure fun with paper. We talked about all the fun details to incorporate and sketched some thoughts that day. Then, they left and i put my creative cap on and went to work!
You might remember the tidbits from my sketchbook? The design came together just I had envisioned and it is one of my favorites!
It all started with a custom, letterpressed pocket fold to hold all of the pieces of her invitation suite.
Tiffany’s wedding is going to be nothing short of amazing! I can’t wait to see photos.
On another note, thanks to all for filling out the survey from this week. I would still love about 30-40 more responses so I have enough information to make the best line of invitations. So, please feel free to pass the link along to anyone who might be able to submit information! It is much appreciated.
This will one of the last posts before I go on a hiatus while focusing on the new site and the ready-to-order line. What a way to end posting for now!
As we move full force into the new website design and our ready-to-order collection, we are gathering information from you! We would love additional information from past brides, current brides and even mother-of-the-brides! We are doing our best to gather the most recent information regarding purchasing invitations and would love your help.
You can take the survey here.
All information collected is private, not used for anything other than research to be able to offer a fantastic line of invitations for all the paper lovers out there! However, if you leave your email address, you will be entered into a drawing for a package of letterpress goodies from our boutique for taking the time to enter. (Drawing will be held once survey is closed).
(Email addresses will be used solely for the purpose of entering the contest, not for mailing lists. Only completed surveys will be entered).
One of my favorite parts of being a designer is the concept phase. Well, the concept phase and then seeing the creations coming to life in the end!
If you have followed along with the tidbits from my sketchbook, you might remember this one. A fun couple with a wedding ceremony and small, intimate reception in California, and then a month later, a large reception here in Saratoga, NY.
The design at hand, was to create a save the date that would translate between both places, while making each location unique. We played off of each state flower (the poppy for California and the rose for New York) and incorporated postage pieces for each state.
We have started the concepts for the sets of invitations now and I love all the details that are coming together! Combined with their planner Katie from Katie O’ Weddings and Events, these events are sure to knock your socks off!
RPI puts on some fantastic events, and i’m so lucky to design for the event groups there. Some past designs include a double sided letterpress invitation, a fun with numbers invitation to honor a past member of the Board of Directors and of course the fabulous die cut program for that event at the holiday season this past December.
This most recent project was for an elegant, oversized invitation for a party in NYC at The Plaza to honor the philanthropists to RPI. Heavy ivory stock combined with raised gold and black ink give the feeling of simplistic elegance.
