Jennifer + Chris’s Modern Save the Date Booklet

Jennifer from Adori Designs sent over these fun save the date booklets that she created for her own upcoming wedding!  Jennifer’s wedding will take place on the shore, but instead of a traditional beach-inspired colors Jennifer chose a bold and modern color palette of purple and green for her save the dates.

From Jennifer:  I’ve always been obsessed with handmade booklets ever since I took a book binding class in college.  So when it came to my wedding stationery, I knew right away I needed to incorporate some kind of booklet.

We are getting married at the jersey shore but didn’t want to go all out with an expected beach theme.  Instead, I kept it very simple with a minimal graphic pattern and simple use of typography.  Because it is somewhat of a destination wedding, the focus was accommodating our guests as much as possible by including a small map and hotel information.

A magnet was also added and adhered to the last page with removable glue.  I also didn’t want to give away too much of the design in the Save the Date, just a little “sneak peek”.  The grand finale will be the invitation itself which will repeat some of these graphic elements and introduce new ones.  And yes, you guessed it, it will be some kind of book!

Modern Copper + Gray Engagement Party Invitations

I have a secret love for anything that sparkles – including glitter!  Elpitha from Print in Cursive sent over these invitations that she recently printed for an upcoming engagement party.  The invitation was letterpress printed in shades of gray to reflect the chilly winter weather in Salt Lake City, and then hand glittered for just a bit of sparkle!

From Elpha: This engagement invitation is greatly influenced by the bride’s sense of style and the subtle color landscape of chilly winter weather.  Magda wanted her invitation to be fun and casual, with a little bit of sparkle.  Each invitation was printed in 4 runs on the press using extra thick cotton Lettra stock and then hand glittered in copper to match the envelope.

Silhouette Telegram Letterpress Wedding Invitations

How adorable are these telegram wedding invitations?  These invitations were printed by Brisbane, Australia-based studio Bespoke Letterpress for the bride, Fiona, a graphic designer who was super-excited to design her own wedding invitations.  Fiona was inspired by her grandmother’s personal telegrams, and from from the kissing silhouettes at the top to the vintage-inspired telegram layout – I’m loving the entire design.

Organic Gray + Gold Announcements for Baby Maeve

Yay, baby announcements!  Karly from Oscar + Emma sent over the gorgeous announcements that she designed for her daughter Maeve, and I’m completely smitten with the natural color palette of gray, gold, and white.  Darling baby silhouette?  White calligraphy on a kraft envelope?  Yes please!

Organic-Gray-Gold-Baby-Announcements

From Karly:  I pride myself on always thinking of the little things and I didn’t want any detail to go unnoticed.  Although pink is customary for a baby girl I chose not to go that route.  Maeve is a unique little individual and I really wanted to reflect that with her birth announcement. I was really inspired by 3 design styles… organic, elegant, and precious.

The organic part was brought in with the materials I used.   The announcement design was letterpress printed and foil stamped on Crane Lettra 100% cotton paper tucked inside a cotton muslin bag which was gocco printed with a special message and finished with a tiny gold “M” and heart charm tied to each one.  All of this was then mailed inside a kraft envelope.

The elegance was achieved with the actual design of the announcement and by using a subtle gray ink and gold foil.  I asked Grace Edmands Calligraphy to hand address the envelopes.  Her work is gorgeous and she is such a lovely person, so I really wanted her elegant touch.

And finally, the precious element was brought in by using Maeve’s darling silhouette for the announcement and custom postage stamp.  I also created a gray gingham pattern to line the kraft envelopes.

So darling!  Thanks Karly, and welcome little Maeve!
