I’m so incredibly excited, I can hardly contain myself! I’ve been thinking about this for weeks now. And I want my blog readers to be the first to know.
Charlie and I are huge techies, especially when it comes to Apple products. And a few weeks ago, I got my
newest iPhone case, a custom printed plastic casing with our wedding photo printed on the back. I got so many compliments on the case and people asking where I got it. Excuse the horrible photograph.
I figured out how I can put my love for designing and my love for technology together. CO: Creative Cartel will now be offering a line of iPad/iPhone cases and custom printed iPad/iPhone cases! Send me a photo, have me design a custom design for you, or select from our line of custom designs. Our spring/summer line will be up by May and we’ll be working on the fall/winter designs soon after! Take a look at some of our inspiration sketches (made on Paper by 53). I’m not much of a sketch artist, but I think you’ll get the idea. My drawing skills are definitely not up to par! Let the bad sketch jokes commence.
I had the pleasure of designing my new in-laws’ anniversary invites a few weeks ago. I love anniversaries! It celebrates a lifetime of love, something that I look forward to celebrating with Charlie.
For the design, we wanted to give it a playful feel with a vintage elegance. So we went with a whimsy design with a focus on bold color. We went with a soft hue of gray and yellow and a left alignment to balance the dandelion artwork.
My favorite part: the paper. The linen card stock give the full bleed design amazing texture and accentuated the vintage feel.
Sarah and Brad are a very important couple to me, they were my very first Etsy clients! Sarah found my store and liked my Damask Invitation Suite design from my 2011 collection. She was such a pleasure to work with! I’m so happy we had the opportunity to work together for her wedding invitations and wedding programs.
She liked the way I had most of the type laid out, so we just changed the wording and swapped colors to match her wedding’s color scheme and off we went! The beginning text that included their names were centered but aligned to the right to give a visual balance to the damask pattern on the left. The remaining body of text was aligned left to create an interesting read while maintaining the invitations graphic appeal.
The RSVP was a simple complement to the invitation’s design.
The outer envelope was my favorite part of the suite. Sarah and Brad opted to have us print their return address as well as upgrade to an envelope liner to tie all the aspects of the invitation together. I think it worked out perfectly!
Thank you Sarah and Brad for allowing us to be a small part of your special day!
