Beach Walk

This invitation suite was designed for my internship roommate, Jana, and her fiance, Tom. They are planning a beach-front wedding later this summer. In their effort to 'go green', we worked to creatively eliminate envelopes or additional paper inserts where we could. Below is what was printed on the reverse of their invitations, allowing for less paper to be used throughout the printing process.

We even designed response post cards instead of traditional cards with envelopes:

Paper used for all of their Save the Date and Invitations is Pearl White Metallic. The Invitation Envelopes are also Pearl White Metallic. The Invitation Envelopes are lined in Aqua Lagoon Metallic to coordinate with the flip flop detailing on their paper suite.

Perfect Game

I'm sorry I haven't blogged these invitations sooner! They were created for my nephew's 8th birthday bowling party.

So many kids birthday invitations today reflect our no-time, no-creativity lifestyle, and these are a great alternative!

I invite my clients to get creative all the time -- think your kids interests -- sports, hobbies, and more! We can create and hand cut any invitations to be unique and perfect, just like your child.

The paper used was Bright White Basic cardstock hand cut into the shape of a bowling pin. While all hand cut invitations are done so with care, we do leave a small margin for variations, as they are cut by hand, and not a machine.

I love these little birth announcements!! The simplicity of this little chickadee presents the information of your newest addition with a cute note.
As with all of our birth announcements, we encourage the mom-to-be to select the announcements before the arrival of her new baby. Once they are selected and purchased, we mail the envelopes to you ahead of time, so you can address them while you still have a free minute! Once the baby is born, just forward us the key information, like name, weight, length and photo (optional with some baby announcements), and we create your announcements and send them over. A classic way to get the word out of your special delivery!
The paper is (top to bottom) Orange Basic with Bright White Basic cardstock on top.

Labels - Sweet Treats and Favors

Something I love about current wedding trends is the Candy Bar. No, not the Snicker.

The actual bar, or buffet, of candy treats for your guest to enjoy as a wedding favor. These labels have been very popular to appear on a clear, cello bag near you and placed strategically near the Candy Bar for your guests to load up a baggie to take home.

All of the labels are shown with fun song lyrics, but yours can say anything you want! Go the extra step to personalize them with your names and the date.

Also great for shower favor bags, these can be personalized with other fun sayings like "Jana's Bridal Shower -- only 68 more days until the Miss becomes a Mrs." At only $3 per sheet of 18 labels, they are a cost-effective way to make your Candy Bar personalized and perfect!

Calling Cards - Brides Collection

As we've posted before, calling cards are making a comeback in a big way. Perfect for enclosing with a gift when you don't need a full greeting card, or sending with a note or document, they are a great social correspondence piece for your collection!

These are both designed with brides in mind in two different styles. Many brides who order these styles enclose their new address or contact information on the back of them and include them with shower and wedding thank you notes, or when giving gifts to their attendants.

The can double as a 'calling card' with your new contact information and (of course!) you new name! Over 80 paper colors are available to customize these cards. They are shown on Bright White Solid.

Labels - Argyle

Ok, I'm a sucker for labels. While invitations are hands-down my passion, I think address labels can say so much about the sender. I designed these early on in Bliss Papers and am finally sharing these great labels for your enjoyment!

Font, font color, and argyle colors are all completely customizable, and these labels are available in multiple sizes to fit your preference. At only $3 per sheet, they are affordable, custom labels!

Also, check out these Argyle Pastels, great for a softer look (and a favorite for baby shower invitations and announcements!)

Tutti Fruitti

I love bright colors!!

This was an invitation sample created for a recent women's club fundraiser called "The Fruit of the Spirit" -- hence the tangarine and lime detail.

The paper used (bottom to top) was Orange Metallic with Bright White Solid cardstock. The lime green border drim is printed on the white layer.
