Katherine + Matthew Programs

Katherine and Matthew were wonderful to work with.  She knew exactly what she wanted, and was great about describing everything for me.  And Matthew also participated in the design process! What a wonderful fiance!

We made large half page booklets with 8 pages.  She asked to have this decorative paper from Paper Studio involved in these programs, since it was used in her invitations.  We special-ordered the matching paper for the covers as well, in Bazill Watermelon, in case any DIY brides would like to tackle this project with the same chiyagami paper. The cardstock matched the cherry blossom design perfectly.  I opted to use brown ribbon to tie these together. Originally thought of using light pink, but when I tried it out, with normal light pink ribbon, it was a little clashy and didn't match the cherry blossoms perfectly, so I went with chocolate brown.  The couple was happy with the results, and that's all that matters. Congratulaions, Katherine and Matthew!

Here's some lovely feedback from Katherine on my Etsy site: Great to work with throughout the process...even through several revisions of the text, and she made the program with my exact specifications and choices. The programs are beautiful!!

Allison's Photo Cards

This is a great set of Photo Table Cards made for Allison and her fiance.  I loooove these, because each photo and location is significant to the couple.  This is a GREAT idea for any bride to DIY on her own, or you can have a vendor make these for you.  This set is made double sided so that Allison can display them in table card holders in the middle of the table.  Guests may view these fantastic photos from all around the table.  She also opted to have each table listed as a Table # as well, so that guests are able to find their table assignments easily when entering the reception venue. 
 Such a beautiful couple!
 This is my FAVORITE photo.  Love those engagement moments!  Funny, didn't we all make that face?  :)

Peacock Thank You Cards

I've worked with Brooke in the past on her STD cards, so she asked me to make a set of Thank you cards for her bridal shower.  We used the same peacock tail as the graphics, and printed on plain white heavy cardstock.  Simple and easy.  To add some pizazz, I added 3 green rhinestones within the graphic.  You can use plain white envelopes or metallic envelopes to complete the presentation, but either way, you have a cute set of simple thank you cards!

I didn't realize that I did not post photos of Brooke's STD Cards, so here are a few to show off...

Jaimee + Jay: Digital Package

Jaimee took on the task of printing and cutting her programs.  Her Fuschia/Orange theme was based on my DEANNA design for all her program, seating chart, and table cards.  Congrats!

Here are a couple alternative seating chart designs that didn't make the cut, but I wanted to post here for you to see other options available...

 We also worked on the following monogram to be used in any of Jaimee's other DIY projects.
