11.26.15 | Two Turkeys

Happy Thanksgiving all!

You may remember the gender reveal scratch-off cards I recently featured.  Well…the little guys arrived into this world on September 5th!

A few weeks later, I went home to St. Louis to meet my newborn twin nephews, Milo + Angelo.  I even had the chance to witness {and help out a little} at their first photo session with Tracey from Love and Life Photography!  They were both troopers, even though they pooped in baskets, peed on me multiple times and squawked a little.  They’re babies–what do you expect!?

Anyways, I designed this precious {semi-biased} birth announcement for my sister.

On the back of the announcement we left extra blank space to write a ‘thank you’ note to anyone who sent gifts after the boys were born!

And just because I can…here’s another fav from their first photo shoot!


11.10.15 | Cheers to 50 Years!

As we sat at dinner on a ship in the middle of the Adriatic Sea, Tess was telling me about her parents’ upcoming 50th anniversary party.  She was looking for an invitation design that would incorporate their prom picture…yet she was hesitant to mail this special photograph off to some design company across the country.  As she told me more about her concept, I loved the idea and wanted to be a part of bringing her vision to life.

Shortly after our trip, she emailed the image and I worked my *magic* to increase the quality of the photograph.  I’m not going to lie–I was a little worried the resolution wouldn’t improve, but thankfully it did.

I hope these two enjoyed celebrating their love with family and friends!

10.29.15 | Do You.

The urban dictionary states that the phrase “do you” means:

1. acting in a way that satisfies you, not caring about what others think
2. following your heartDena + Jim did just that when they surprised their family and friends with an elopement announcement on August 20th!  A formal ceremony was not their style, so instead they snuck away to Denver, Colorado and got married!

Shortly after their return, Dena reached out to me to design their ‘Wedding Announcement + Celebration” invitation.  Last weekend they celebrated with family and friends, Wisconsin-style–wearing Badgers apparel.

Congrats again Dena + Jim!

09.06.15 | Lakeside Wedding ~ Port Washington, WI

Congratulations to Jenn + Matt…these two got hitched yesterday!

Initially Jenn wasn’t exactly sure what she envisioned for their wedding invitations, but after a few discussions and brainstorming sessions with her fiance {now husband} we came up with the designs below.

{Unique Features}

  • The photo in the background of their invitation is actually a photo from Jenn’s phone. It shows the view of Lake Michigan from their ceremony location in Port Washington, WI.
  • Due to the fact that Jenn + Matt would have many out of town guests, they included a Milwaukee Weekend Guide as a part of their invitation.  This allowed guests to have some time to plan their Labor Day Weekend activities, besides the wedding festivities, of course.  It also brought out their playful sense of humor!
  • Lastly, they wrapped their invite, accommodations card, RSVP, reception card and weekend guide with twine/burlap ribbon to add a special finishing touch–before stuffing their craft paper envelopes which carried on their outdoor wedding theme.
