New } Plum & Gunmetal Dessert Buffet Tags

A little seek peek of a plum & gunmetal papery suite for one of our October brides! These dessert tags were created for Heather's bridal shower last weekend ... and can you guess who did the dessert spread? Yea ... Sweet Cakes by Rebecca.

Heather has a bit of a love affair with Felur de Lis so the desserts were French theme with a touch of her favorite symbol here-and-there. Desserts included: Mini Madeleines, Molded White Chocolate Fleur de Lis, Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta, Creme Brulee Bars {ummm, I haven't tried these yet ... and Creme Brulee is my fav!!}, Vanilla Almond Cookies, Cream Puffs and Mini Lemon Cupcakes ... YUM!

The combo of Mini Banner tags & LolliStick tags helped completed the dessert buffet perfectly ... well, so I am told! Thought it was cute idea to put the little LolliStick tags in a mini votive candle holder with some shimmery silver rocks.

Will post a full feature of Heather & Rich's wedding day papery suite after the big day takes place this fall!

Request your custom dessert buffet tags & papery via email or by requesting a custom item on our Etsy Shop!!

New! } Leather Invitation Embellishments & Custom Leather Monogram Stamping

Leather. Yep! Just a peek at one of the fab pieces we're putting together for what is sure to be an amazing fall wedding for Holly & Randy.

We designed a monogram turned it into a custom leather stamp ... then hand-stained leather {yes, my hands are completely stained! next time, gloves!} made into a monogram tag to adorn the front of the invitations.

Leather is such a great medium to work in! There are tons of stain colors available, tools, decorative stamps ... just some really fun stuff. I have such an appreciation for the artisans who work in this medium! Can't wait to experiment some more!!

More to share from this wedding in a few months ... keep visiting!

Weddings } Gunslinger Reception Papery & Decor

Wedding papery doesn't have to be all butterflies & baroque! This fun take on reception papery for a wedding this weekend in Texas was all about Girly Gunslinging.

I recently started working with candy buffet maven The Sweetress based in the Lone Star State on candy tag, birthday and wedding papery ... {be on the lookout for a feature on her new logo coming soon - by you know who!} and I have to say it's been super-fun so far! We have some fun party projects coming up together ... can't wait to share!

Super-cute LolliSticks with the Bang! Bang! emblem will be featured on the candy buffet, as well as the Die-Cut Candy tags, menus for each of the place settings, escort cards, table cards {not pictured} and the Bang! Bang! Find Your Seat Die-Cut will be placed on a custom pin board Diana, owner of The Sweetress, will be creating for the reception.

Think out side of the traditional {unless that's your thing!} and truly make your wedding one to remember!!

Schedule } A Mid-Season Vacation

We are soooo hitting the Happiest Place on Earth in T-Minus 48 hours!! Yipppppeee! A little mid-season siesta is definitely in order for this one happily busy designer.

The studio will be closed from Saturday, June 18th through Sunday, June 26th. I will of course keep a weather-eye out for emails and be checking my voicemail ... but will not be returning messages {both email and phone} unless there is some sort of cataclysmic paper event that needs my immediate attention. All new inquiries, sadly, will have to wait for my return.

Have a terrific week people ... and I will see you real soon!!

Kiddos } Clementine Pennant, Tissue Pom Poms & Party Papery

Another great kiddo party!!! This clementine {or tangerine ... whichever you prefer!} baby shower was the inspired idea of Jessica from Jessica Giblin Photography. When it came time for Jessica's friends, Bre & Nathan, to welcome their first bundle of joy and the baby-to-be's name is Clementine ... Jessica wanted a palette of oranges, whites and fresh greens ... and of course little clementine's playing about.

Of course no party is complete without some yummy treats ... red velvet cake pops, mini apple pies, clementine sugar cookies, lemon bars, baby cake, mini caramel apples, caramel corn, oatmeal cookies and orange dream cupcakes!! All courtesy of the talented crew at {you guessed it!} Sweet Cakes by Rebecca.

The SJD team pulled together {of course!} the papery. New!!! our Tangerine PomThingy's, tags for all the delish deserts, a Clementine pennant {10 letters!! Clementine has 10 letters ... that made for one loooooong pennant!}, mini tangerine PomThingy's, cones for the candy corn, paper die-cuts {along with the hanging mini tangerines for the photo backdrop - soooo cute!} and a mommy wish tree sign complete with little coordinating leaves for all the guest's well wishes!

Also, check out Jessica's Blog for Bre & Nathan's baby bump shoot! They used the pennant I made in their photo shoot as well ... super-adorable!

Thank you Jessica for taking such great pics with your talented eye and for allowing me to share in the sweetness of Bre & Nathan's baby shower!!

Happy, Happy to Bre & Nathan!
