Time flies when you're having fun!

Wow, 2011 just flew by! We were so busy working in the studio designing custom invitations and planning fantastic parties we didn't have time to update the blog. I know, tsk tsk! We'll try to do better in 2012!

In the meantime we wanted to share some favorites of ours...

{Ornate Cut Holiday Cards}
This style card was new to us this year. A printer we're working with allows for you to design a card with this unique die cut. It is fun because you get a little "peek-a-boo" of the inside of the card when the card in folded. For the holidays we used this format for our own personal card as well as for the family card for our outstanding photographer Chrissy Gray of Bella Luna Studios

Since we both own our own businesses we wanted to do a little marketing on the backside. Bella Luna used the space to show off all of the unique and special photos she is able to capture during a family photo session. We used the space to let people know we've open a studio in Point Richmond.

The style of card would be great as a birth announcement or graduation announcement. The card can be turned on its side as well and there are a few other die cut styles to choose from.

{Zoo Wedding with Envelopments Pocket}
Our clients were getting married at the San Francisco Zoo and wanted a playful yet elegant invitation to set the tone for their wedding in May 2011.  We designed their invitation as well as helped them with event design and coordination. They even had a meet and greet with some zoo animals during the cocktail hour. Who knew, a wedding at the Zoo?

{Fabulous Fiesta - Palace of Fine Arts}
The first time we met this couple we just fell in love! We were so excited to work with them on designing a beautiful event. After their reception venue fell through, about 2 months before the wedding, we had to scramble to rework the event....but in the end, I think the day was better than we could have hoped for! The couple worked with a shop in the Mission District to design custom papel picados (chopped paper) flags to decorate the venue. We took the artwork and created custom invitations.

You can take a look at the entire wedding: Fabulous Fiesta

Hope your 2012 is off to a great start and we promise to keep up on sharing our great designs!
