Aspen Tree Wedding Invitations

An oldie, but goodie! These Aspen Tree Wedding Invitations were done but never photographed and they are making a comeback with all the outdoor weddings being planned near and far. Keeley and Cameron met out in Colorado and had traveled out to Crested Butte and knew that was where they would get married someday. The aspen trees were custom illustrated (from the photos they provided when they visited their wedding location) and used as the main design element for their invitation set.

Every Piece of My Heart-Custom Wedding Invitations

Starting off 2014 was a wedding invitation set I designed for this fabric-lovin’ couple. Reggie absolutely loves quilts and as part of the proposal/engagement story, Gordon had actually sewn together a quilt for Reggie as a surprise. In this wedding set, we scanned in the fabric squares Gordon used and incorporated into the design of their wedding invitations, programs and thank you cards. I named this collection, “Every Piece of my Heart”… a little cheesy but I think fitting!

Love is in the Air!

Starting off a series of blog postings from my latest work, and some archived weddings I never got a chance to photograph. Here is my dear friend Michelle’s wedding invitation set with pink chevron-lined envelopes. Thought this might be the next appropriate post given I’m learning calligraphy…

Modern Calligraphy

I’m taking my first modern calligraphy class via SkillShare by Paperfinger owner/calligrapher Bryn Chernoff and I am loving it! Just spent about an hour getting my supplies out, practicing and printing out her worksheets and thought I’d share my ‘day one’ letterforms to compare with what white lemon designs will look like once I’m done and find my own “style”!

Preschool Graduation Gifts

It’s that time of the year.. congratulations to all the graduates out there for all that you’ve done and will do in the years to come! Our very own 5 year-old graduates from preschool today and to commemorate the day and the friends he’s made the past two years, I made some graduation gifts for his buddies to take home after their “step-up” ceremony. Each grad gift includes some things any Kindergartner will be excited to use:
– one lap black chalkboard
– one mini chalkboard eraser
– one box of anti-dust chalk
– three Big-Dipper red pencils

I made little tags to attach to the ribbon and printed out each of Branden’s friends’ names on avery full-sheet labels (using the font Schoolhouse) and adhered them to the bottom of their chalkboards. I hope they like them!
