Elizabeth and Brian Wedding Invitations

A year or so ago, i was able to create invitations for my Kettering University Alpha Phi's.  Well, now i have the privledge to finish wedding invites for one of the A-Phi Alums!

Brian and Elizabeth loved our 2 layer invites, but wanted to add a bit "more" to it- so we added a ribbon! The 5/8" thick ribbon is very close in color to the bridesmaid dresses, so the invites will tie into the event very nicely!  A metallic black cardstock backing is the base for the invitation. the top layer, made of white metallic paper, has a beautiful black/gray swirl design and their wording. Their names are emphasized by using a script font and by matching the turquoise color of the ribbon.

The response card and the reception card also coordinate to make a beautiful stationary suite.  Both accessory cards contain the swirl graphic and matching fonts, printed on the white metallic paper.  The Reception card also includes the title of the card in the turquoise font.

Congrats to the bride and groom to be!
and as always, AOE :)

Kaitlyn and Kristen Dedication Invitations

My husband, Rick, and I, along with a handful of other families, are so excited to dedicate our children to Christ next month.  I love creating products for my family, and this event was worthy of an invitation :)

I decided on a "delicate elegance" theme. Using a champagne metallic cardstock as a base to the invitation, i layered the invitation with an antique gold paper layer to act as a frame. The top layer is a metallic white paper with a gray print.  Delicate swirls and a simple cross are kept small to allow the words to be be focus of the invitation.

may God bless our little girls :) <3

Ashley and Michael's Damask candle lanterns

this week i have sold quite a few of my lantern sets!  most of the sets are based on my photos (black print), but this couple elected for a deep plum purple color! 
So pretty!

(the pictures were taken with a white paper background behind the lanterns to see the colors and designs)
Congrats to the happy couple!
