Fold Over and Wallet Invitations

These monogram wallets are just going so well. People are loving the idea of having their initials on the front for everyone to see, along with their colour schemed ribbon.

And since my first big order of the fold over invitation, I have yet to create any  more but today gave me the chance.

Whilst sitting playing around with my settings on my facebook page, I received around 25 likes between two likers. Both Sallie and Simone have ended up wanting the same samples as it happens.

Simone had a claret colour scheme. A bold colour for me to play with as I have yet to go with any colour quite so deep and rich.
Sallie on the other hand wanted a soft green with butterflies to match her wedding cake.

Two very different feels to the invitations with their colours but beautiful.

Post Your Cards Here....!

Today, I had the pleasure of creating my first Wedding Post Box for a lovely bride to be in June, Laura.

With an ivory and cadbury purple colour scheme. Laura made it easy for me to design, as she loved my post box I created for my wedding over a year ago. 

This is my first post box creation. Hopefully, I'll have the pleasure of creating a few more over the next few months.

Napkin Rings

Want something beautiful to sit in the middle of each table setting?
Then why not add a touch of glamour and colour but putting a beautiful hand crafted napkin ring around each napkin.

Made with either ribbon or card, these napkin rings come in array of colours and can be tailored to your wedding theme. If you fancy something different one your napkin ring, as apposed to the mulberry flowers and butterflies I've used, then let me know and we can work on a new design for you. 

Prices start from 50p each. 

I know from experience, that at my own wedding in May 2011, everyone commented to be on how beautiful their place setting looked and how it added a touch of colour without being too over powering.

More Monograms.....!

Ever since creating Daniella's monogram wallet invitation, I've had several other emails asking for them.
Since Daniella sent me over here monogram, I've had a little play with some myself, and so far, so good!

Emily contacted me asking for a monogram wallet herself in which she wanted a hunter green theme. But with the green, she wanted some sparkle. So we decided on adding a diamante and pearl embellishment. The response I got from her was lovely. I love receiving emails telling me how much they love my work and how excited they are to receive their invitations. This was the lovely response I got:
"Just to say we received the sample today and we absolutely love it. Your hard work and creativity really show through in your work! You definitely have a talent you've made us so happy and I'm just very glad I found your facebook page :)"

This is Emily's monogram wallet invitation

And then just a few hours later, I received another request for a monogram wallet invitation but this time with a gold and silver colour theme. 
After receiving the wording from Kelly, I decided that have a play with the ribbon too and go with a different style. I have to say, I really love this invitation. Gold is not normally a colour I like (I'm more of a silver) but I love how the gold really draws the eye to the invitation. I really hope when Kelly receives her invitation she loves it just as much as I do.

Here is Kelly's monogram invitation:

If you too and fallen in love with my monogram invitations them please feel free to contact me, and we can out together a sample that contains your colours and ideas. I love making these style invitation, so please give me the chance to create some more ;)

In The Money.....

Cheque book invitations so far are proving to be one of my most popular designs.

After my first experiment with Becca and James's snowflake invitations, these styles are now proving to be popular more than ever. I have received at least 5 emails on these designs in the last few weeks.

The reason being, with a cheque book invitation is that all the information can be held in a neat little book. The inserts included are the Invitation, Additional Information, Gift List and tear off and send back RSVP.
They are held together on the side with a neat ribbon and the front designs can be amended to your colour scheme and design.

Here are just a few of the designs I've created in the last week.

Monogram Invitations

My time on the Wedding Ideas Forum as an advertiser is so far paying off. I have been contacted by a few of the girls to make up sample mock ups of the Stationery they'd like to have a look over.

Daniella contacted me with a lovely first email, with her saying how this invite is one of the only one's she'd seen and kept thinking about. She had a monogram she'd created and wanted incorporating into the Invitation, along with her lovely colour scheme of sage green and dusky pink. The monogram was beautiful. We had a few discussions about where to monogram was to go with a ribbon inserted too with a 3 small mulberry roses.

The wallet came out beautiful. The combination of the monogram and ribbon looked beautiful. After playing around with different coloured roses to use, I'd also decided that the look was best with a single rose, but I gave her the choice between one and three, and she agreed.

I sent Daniella the draft invitation over the email and her response was wonderful. I made both her and her Mum cry! I never knew that I could create something that could reduce people to tears.

I really hope she likes her sample when she receives it early next week and fingers crossed I'll get too make a few more of those designs in the future.

For now, here are the sample invitations.
