Fa la la la la...

...just wanted to share some more of our our holiday greeting card designs for this year. Hope the holiday rush isn't getting you down...just 9 more days until Christmas! Eek!

This holiday card is for one of our brides who keeps coming back every year for new designs. We joke because she usually takes my business holiday card from the previous year as design inspiration and just changes the colors. I think that is the best compliment! :)

I design the holiday cards for my twins' pre-school every year. Love this year's card!
Kimmy and Dan were just married in Disney and wanted to keep that fairy dust theme for their holiday cards too...enjoy!

Real Wedding - Kristen & Andrew - 09.12.09

Kristen and Andrew were married on September 12th of this year at The River Plantation in Queenstown, Maryland. Some of you may remember their beautiful invitations with an ivory pearl folder and raspberry accents...the one with the big "F" on the monogram! Their accessories - program fans and table numbers - had the same monogram design and color scheme. Hope you enjoy these great pics from their big day. Thanks to Hamilton Photography for taking such awesome shots. Enjoy!

Happy Holly-Days!

Grace and Garrett are getting married on December 19th and Grace wanted an invitation that really highlighted the holiday time of the year. This folder style invitation has a cranberry pearl folder, hunter green ribbon band and invite panel adorned with a custom holly leaf and berry design. With their wedding just over a week away and Christmas not far behind, this holiday inspired invitation should get you in the spirit! Enjoy!

Blast from the Past

Jessica contacted us by email to design her wedding invitations. She and Charles are having a very small wedding ceremony on New Year's nice! :) Jessica saw our monogram overlay invitation on our old Handmade by Allison site. We haven't done this style for a client in a long time, so I was excited to revisit it...and freshen it up with a pretty turquoise color scheme. Congrats to Jessica and Charles and I hope they have a wonderful wedding...starting their new life together on New Year's Day...perfect! Enjoy!

Turquoise T's

Teresa and Thomas are getting married next year in May at Celebrations at the Bay. Teresa wanted their turquoise color scheme to be highlighted on the save the date and really loved the "starfish holding hands" design that I had done for another client. We combined the card with a matching turquoise metallic envelope to make the perfect first impression for their guests. Looking forward to working on their pocket invite very soon! Enjoy!

Castle Corners

Lara and Jim met with me a few months ago to discuss their wedding invitations. They are having a formal wedding at the Cloister's Castle on Valentine's Day and wanted an invitation that reflected the formality of the big day. We designed pocket invite in black with satin ribbon corners in cobalt blue. To highlight the castle theme, Lara wanted to include an image of a knight on the insert cards too. I love the look of this invite...especially how the blue pops...very striking! Enjoy!

Perfect Programs

Erene and Michael were married just this past weekend on November 28th in Baltimore, Maryland. Erene and her mother met with me in early November and wanted the perfect square booklet style program...a 7x7 square. This was a new size for us and I'm so happy with the final product. Erene wanted a very classic look with ecru metallic cardstock and pages and tied with a black ribbon. So pretty! Enjoy!
