Jenna and Matthew's Wedding Invite Suite

Jenna is marrying into my BFF's family... so naturally i was super excited to work with her. Let's just say this girl is all kinds of awesomeness- she's funny, sweet, and beautiful-- and i only physically met her once to pick up her invites :) Matt.. you are a lucky man ;)

Anyways, Jenna and Matt send me a photo inspiration from her pinterest account. They loved the look of the pinned sample, but we not thrilled with the price tag accompanying it.  With a few tweaks, we were able to create the following suite for almost half of the other design. i say that's a win :)

We used Navy blue (recycled!) cardstock as the base of the invite. white cardstock layers were used for the top layer ( wording).  I introduced my Cricut to Scrapping Innovations and was able to create and cut the "ribbon" from white cardstock with printed pink gingham.
 The wrap closure was made from the navy cardstock and a white cardstock punch out.
The Reception card was made with a layer of the white cardstock and a layer of the navy cardstock. The RSVP card is a single layer of white cardstock.
RSVP envelopes as well as the inner and outer envelopes included printing in matching fonts (not pictured).

All in all, it was a very fun invite suite to create and i hoping the bride and groom like it as much as i do. :)

Soleil and Matt single fold over programs

very now and then i get the honor to design something for people that i know :) In this occasion, i was able to design wedding programs for two past coworkers! (they were "just" friends when i met them ;))  Soleil and Matt wanted a simple and elegant single fold program.
i was able to take graphics from their wedding invitation and use them in their programs.
Printing on a matte white cardstock, their wedding programs included their wedding party, ceremony order, a beautiful thank you note and a memorial section.

Congrats to the beautiful couple inside and out :)
