Yeah! Guin sent me more pics of her wedding reception table setup. If you look closely, you'll see one of my table numbers set up in the middle. The second picture has the table card held up by a really pretty easel. Check out my last entry for her candy buffet at the following link. GE Designs: Guin's Wedding - more pics.

I've finished my sample page of monograms! This is just a small sample of what I've done in the past, so it's just to help everyone pick a style to work with in the design process. If you're interested, go here: Monogram Samples or to the link on the right under my Fave Sites.

Jennifer came to me looking for a winter themed monogram. Here are a couple proofs and her final monogram.
I haven't finished this project yet, but I thought I'd post the pictures of the first two I completed, just because it's a new theme I'm working on and I couldn't wait to share. Erin and Dwight are huge football fans and wanted to incorporate that into their table themes. So they've used some famous players from University of Miami (hale Warren Sapp!)... we've used hot pink, orange and later will be adding some green to the mix...
Jennifer came to me for help on her monograms for her DIY projects. She already had great table numbers & menus set up, and just needed a little extra monogram to add a little umph to them. Here are her final monograms in her 3 for $12 package.

I thought I'd post this set of table numbers because it's one of the first sets I made using ivory shimmery cardstock as the base, and also, a set of cards was ordered to match the table numbers that spelled out "LOVE IS SWEET." When it was done, I thought, wow, this IS pretty sweet. They plan on hanging these cards at the candy buffet table on a clothesline-style ribbon with clips... I'd love to see how that turns out!

Valerie's wedding is coming up soon, so I thought I'd post her monogram I created a few months back. She had asked to incorporate a lotus flower. I searched for good simple lotus graphics, but no luck. So I had a little bit of fun, and designed one myself with one shape. Turns out, I love using this flower in other monograms & logos...

Guin was such a sweetheart to forward me a picture of her candy table at her reception. It turned out GORGEOUS. I contributed by creating the tags that are wrapped around the candy jars, the sign in the middle, and also the little placecards with the names of the candy. It's so hard to notice the signs because the whole presentation is just too pretty to focus on one thing... Congrats GUIN!

I've gotten bitten by the embossing bug! Here are a few table number designs created for OWAH Productions (a wedding planning business). I cut my own stamp using a font by Floralia (http://www.dafont.com/), and here's the result! I used light gold embossing powder... pretty neat!
FYI, here is what one of my "digital proofs" looks like before I make a physical version of the table number designs for my clients.

My goddaughter Lea is turning 4 at the end of this month. Her mom & I worked together to make these super cute carnival themed tickets as invitations for Lea's guests. We're also making little favor tags for the toy prizes for the kids. Those will pop up here closer to the party date.
