This project was so much fun to work on! The bride really wanted the invitation to reflect the wedding ceremony, which took place outdoors on a family ranch next to a beautiful river. She loved the idea of wood grain, but didn't want it to be too rustic. So we printed the wood grain using metallic gold thermography and it came out beautifully. One of my favorite details was that she asked her guests to wear cowboy (or girl!) boots for the occasion. Her photos were so much fun of all her guests in suits and dresses with their boots on! Designing a wedding invitation suite really makes you feel like an important part of the couple's big day. I am always so grateful to the bride and groom for trusting me to fill such a role.
May 12, 2015 this little one came into the world! Mom, dad, and big brother were super excited to share the news with family and friends! We created this baby announcement using the same colors as his nursery - blue and grey. I definitely did not mind staring at this sweet guy's photos for a few hours as I put this together :)
I have a love of coasters. It's no wonder that I do since I pretty much love all things paper. I think coasters are such a fun way to bring colors, prints, photos, and/or pieces of your invitation into your event. They look great around a table, at a bar, or on a buffet table. The best part is, that you can easily keep these long after the event is over and use them around your kitchen and home.
For this baby shower, my only request was something feminine and girly, so I went with pink, swirls and script fonts! We printed digitally on my standard 120 lb. card stock, and did a coordinating insert card in a reverse design. My favorite part about this shower was that the baby was actually there! This group of ladies waited until a few weeks after the baby arrived to host their shower and were all able to meet little Elory for the first time.
I love creating my own holiday card (mainly because I think the two little babies in the photo are the cutest!). This year I decided to keep things rather simple and focus on a beautiful font and envelope + liner combo. I choose a duplexed paper (two sheets hot pressed/glued together to give the paper extra weight) and printed on both sides with a matching return address sticker.
A joint birthday party for two siblings with very close birthdays. I loved this idea! We tried to blend the personality of a sweet baby girl with her older brother's love of trucks. You only turn 1 and 3 once!
For this design we printed digitally on a metallic card stock. We actually did a double-sided print for the invite that included a photo of the two children on the back. For the envelopes, we went with a metallic orange that really popped in the mail!
Lauren Quinn Design's first official wedding set! I loved working on these. The bride selected a green and silver color-scheme and wheat theme that she wanted carried through all of her wedding pieces which included the invitation, reception card, reply card, website card, program and place cards. The green envelope really stood out in the mail and made this set special. It was lined with metallic silver paper to match the belly band that held the pieces together.
These note cards were created for a friend of mine who has a very successful Rodan & Fields business. She wanted a card that she could use for a variety of purposes - thank you notes for her clients, congratulatory notes to her team, or to hold giveaway prizes at events. Using the Rodan + Fields logo, their skincare regimens, brand colors, contact information and some marketing taglines, these cards represent the brand well and will look very professional for her to use for any need.
Two darling cousins that turned one less than two months apart! I was so honored that their mommas asked me to design first birthday cards for their milestone day. How lucky are they to live in the same city and be so close in age?!
Baby boy's birthday had a "Hole in One" theme complete with argyle, navy and green. I created matching banners and food signs that his mom displayed beautifully (see photos below). What a party!
Baby girl's "Apple of Our Eye" party was so sweet with bubble-gum pink and green apple green, and included matching thank you notes.
When you have a bride and groom who are avid sailors, it makes it easy to decide how to decorate for their wedding weekend. I'm a total sucker for red, white and blue, so working on this nautical-themed bridal luncheon was so much fun for me! For this invitation set we printed front and back, created matching coasters for the event day, and sealed the envelopes with a custom-designed sailing flag sticker.
