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!

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!

My 1st Customer! - Crystal's 32nd Birthday party invites

Crawfish and corn cob embellishments sit on a strip of newspaper.  The wording was printed on silver cardstock cut out to resemble a crawfish pot!
My cousin, Crystal asked me if I could make her invitations for her crawfish boil themed birthday.  Of course I said, "Yes!" Here was my chance to get my business off and running. 

Corn, crawfish, red potatoes and lemon wedges add detail to this fun invite!

My First Blog Post: Stepping Out On FAITH!

Good morning, good people! I'm still new at this blogging thing, so bear with me! 12 years ago, my hubby suggested that I start my own custom invitation business.  I never did because of moving around in the military, going back to college and starting my career as an architect.

Fast forward 12 years...I'm finally stepping out on faith and going to give it a try!  I've already completed 4 orders and making tons of samples!  It's been a lot of trial and a whole lot of error, but I love what I'm doing.  I'm looking forward to making people smile when they received one of my invites. I know I do when I complete an order :-)
