Guest Books, First Anniversary Card's and 
Another Fold Over Invitation

My husband has left me for 3 days to work in Liverpool :( Finishing work at 11am, and being home alone, I thought I'd best put some alone time into some creating.

I had some guest books arrive today, and with only one in my portfolio, I set to work on creating a few more designs.
I wanted a Winter theme, so got the cutter and glitter card out again for one design. I matched one of the guest books up against my first monogram invite for Daniella, with a pale green and mulberry rose, And the other two came with what length ribbon I had to choose from. Lol ;)

Here are the photos:

I then set to work on making a First Anniversary card for my lovely 'May Wife' Nikita. 
We met through the Wedding ideas forum in 2010 whilst we planned our own weddings for May 2011. Nikita has always been lovely with her kind words so didn't hesitate in asking me to make her a card for her husband Barry.  I had a few ideas in mind, then on researching for ideas, Nikita found a card she loved and asked me to do my take on it.
I love this card, it's very vintage feeling but it looks fantastic with one of my newly downloaded fonts.
Here's the card:

Last but not least:
I created yet another fold over invitation. Becky came to me with a gold and ivory colour scheme saying she loved my fold over invitations. I used a dark ivory pearlised card, which makes the insert shimmer gold, and finished the look off with a gold and bridal white ribbon with a wedding invitation tag with heart buckle slider.
This is quite possibly my favourite fold over invitation to date. It oouze's glamour and luxury and I love how it shimmers so beautifully in the light.

Printed Wallet Invitations

The last few days I have been exploring the art of printed Wedding Stationery. And with a new win of a £400 printer on ebay for £90, what better time to start rolling out the designs. 

Kath Kidston seems to have a very huge fan base at present, with people wanting to incorporate her beautiful floral designs into their Wedding. So decided to take one of her softer floral patterns and try out of my newly downloaded fonts and come up with a beautiful wallet invitation.
The invite is fronted with her soft floral design with a centrally placed text box. You can have what ever wording you require in the box, for show purposes I used 'Wedding Invitation' and wedding date. The invitation itself is on a ribbon pull out tab, which on the front side holds your wedding invitation and the reverse any additional wedding information your guests may require.

Here is the take on my Kath Kidston themed Wallet Invitations:

And my second design incorporates a bunting or fete themed wedding. More and more people are using bunting for decorating their venue with as its an in expensive way of adding colour and metres and metres of fabulous decorations.
These invites are colourful and playful and will 'wow' your guests. The will add a smile to anyones face.
Here are the photos for this design:

As with all my designs, colours can change to suit your theme. 
These invitations are priced at £2.75 and come with a small rsvp and envelopes are also included.

Hope you like my new designs.
