jude's notecards

my mom asked me to design custom stationery for an old neighbor and great friend of our family a few months ago, and this is the finished product! this was back in march when all the snow insanity was happening, so i took the opportunity to enjoy a little bit of spring with these sweet yellow poppies. these simple, vintage style notecards will be coming to the etsy store soon!

theresa's bridal shower invitations

last summer i had the delight of designing invitations for my close girlfriend's bridal shower. theresa is so lively and bright and i wanted her invites to reflect that. i love the mixture of coral and aqua for summer... and the mixture of fonts gives the invites a very playful feel. these uniquely sophisticated invites have the perfect pop of floral with the monotoned poppy graphic!

genna's shower invitations

these bridal shower invitations were a blast to design and create. the ivory, gold, and black color palette is classic, yet playful with an added dash of confetti. the postcard (and all the fun bits inside) are held in one little package that says "it's a party!" i love that you can see all the information before opening it. i had so much fun making these. thanks to kacki for letting me be a part of genna's bridal shower! :)

chris + nick's golden birthdays

with the help of my mother-in-law, i have been able to design more and take on more made by jessa projects... and that makes me so happy! This invite below was one of the first design projects after my "baby break." my sister was celebrating her husband's and his brother's "golden" birthdays (they turned the age of the day they were born on). with a few key words from my sister, i designed this fun, youthful gatsby invitation fit for a gentleman.

we made taxi cards to hand out at the end of the night to remind out-of-towners how to get home.
my sister and her sister-in-law put together a mustache piƱata filled with cigars, tiny soco and captain morgan bottles, along with mouthwash, axe body spray and hair gel, and of course -- candy. :)
it was a great night! happy belated birthday chris and nick!
