Boxed Wedding Invitation

The Bee Hive has been very busy!  When an idea hits me, I quickly jot it down in my journal or the closest piece of paper I can get my hands on.  I have been wanting to experiment with boxed invitations and ribbon buckles for months, but my orders have been keeping me busy...woe, is me!  So, while I am working on my newest orders, I decided to sneak in this wedding invitation sample.  Sometimes my ideas are hit or miss, but this time I nailed it! Now, all I need is for one lucky bride to order these!

I have been a very busy bee!

Boy, oh boy! It's been a crazy last few months!  I finished my mentorship with great mentor, Melissa McDowell of House of Papier and I filled several orders back to back.  Just when I shipped one out another one was coming in.  I'm still in the learning process, but I enjoy having my own business.  My only regret is that I wish I had not waited so long to make it happen.  Oh well, maybe me starting my business at this point in my life was the right time for me.

Bigger and Better things in 2013!

I decided a year ago to finally take the leap and start designing custom invitations.  I've done invitations for friends and family in the past and I always knew that I had the talent, but I wasn't sure how or where to take it to.  I decided to start with a Facebook page.  I begin to make samples and post them for the world to see.  Soon, one like turned into two, two turned into four and so on and so on.  I was able to complete a few orders last year for various occasions from Sweet 16 birthdays to graduation invitations and announcements.  This is year, I've decided to take my business to the next level.  It helps to have the support of your family and friends, but I think having a great mentor is key! I've found an awesome mentor who is walking me through the steps that I needed to take to start my business off on the right foot.  I know this is a learning experience which I'm ready for.  I've been talking about designing invitations for almost 13 years and it's about time that put my talents to good use!  Stay tuned for great things coming from The Beehive this year!

The following images are a just a few of the samples that I've created and are available for purchase!  Any invite can be customized for your special event.

anniversary party invitation suite
My last trips to Paper Source got my creative wheels to turning.  I saw this paper and had to have it.  I used it as a starting point for this suite.  I found a color to match for the pocket invite and created this suite in honor my grandparents.  This package includes a pocket invite, response card and envelope, matching menu card and favor box.  All wording is printed on savoy cotton paper.

Breanna's Sweet Sixteen Luau invites

I was approached by a good friend of mine to design some invites for her daughter's Sweet 16 party.  Of course I said, "yes!"  She gave me the theme and I was very excited to start coming up with ideas.  Rather than design one card with the same embellishment for the entire package, I decided to use 6 different colors for the mats and fonts. Each of the invites were accented with either a lei, beach ball, tropical flower, pineapple drink, tribal mask or a pair of flip flops.  I had so much fun creating these invites!
Set of 6 invites each in a different luau color.
Each invite is filled with white sand and tiny shell fragments!

Pink invite with a lei embellishment.  

The yellow invites were embellished with a tropical flower in coordinating colors.

The purple invites were embellished with flip flops in coordinating colors.

The blue invites each had a tribal mask with the markings done in coordinating colors.

Each green invite was embellished with a pineapple drink complete with a tiny umbrella!

Beach balls in coordinating colors for each of the orange invites.

Envelopes were printed with Breanna's address in all 6 colors and a  tiny palm tree image.

Even the packaging is color coordinated!

Shaun Christopher's christening annoucements

My first set of christening announcements!  I had blue and brown in mind, but Baby Shaun's mom wanted to use turquoise, silver and white which kinda threw me for a loop.  I had the card stock in the colors, but I was 8 sheets short!  I made to my local scrapbook store and bought all that they had, but I was still short.  I made a 100+ mile round trip to find the right card stock!    I found it at a craft store in Fredericksburg and I was able to complete the order.  Another successful order completed!

Save the Date cards!

I have the honor a designing my brother and future sister-in-law's wedding invitation suite!  With the wedding being held next summer, it gives me plenty of time to create a one-of-a-kind package for them.  Once they gave me their colors of dark purple, light purple and ivory, the wheels of creativity started turning in my mind.  Paper Source, one of my favorite paper stores had come out with a new color that would be perfect for this project.  During my last trip to Alexandria, VA, I cleaned them out of 4 Bar sized aubergine card stock.  I ordered my card stock for the mat and the wording and I was set.  I can't wait to get started on the invitations!
