what could be a better invitation for a wedding at a ranch? tree like textured paper! i created this invitation for Kat when she told me she wanted something very rustic and different. i made her invitation with all handmade papers, i like the irregularity of handmade products, the imperfections of them made them perfect in my eyes.

 Kat also asked to have leaves as part of her invitation, so i put them right in the spot light, framed with beautiful textured paper.

even raised the frame a little to bring out the texture.

her table menu was simple and to the point in a bright happy sunshine yellow, just like Kat's personality. next to the menu was the tag on her favor - hot chocolate in a jar, sweet!

love all the intricate details of the leaf!

double J sneak peek

This is a sample of Joey's invitation to her Spring wedding in the wine country, actual invitation is yet to come! I dont like to post pictures of the invitation until the bride has sent out all her invitations and after most of her guests have received them.

short and sweet

yuko asked me to design her wedding invitation with a pair of love bird, she left the rest of the designing decisions to me and only asked for her love birds to be "short and fat".

i designed a boy bird kissing a girl bird on stems of some whimsical flowers

the invitation was letterpressed on a 4.5" x 6.25" 100% cotton cardstock

aren't these birds chubby?

to further the bird theme but to mix it up a bit, i placed the boy and the girl on the opposite side of the rsvp card, it came out adorable.

thank you cards had the same kissing love bird design

always end with my fav line

yellow sunshine girl

After all the wedding projects I have worked on, I am finally working on my own. I never really put any thoughts into what style I would have when I make my own wedding invitation, but I knew from day one that it would be YELLOW and letterpressed.

I wanted something simple, happy and a bit silly, something with ME written all over. So I picked up my pen and did a few designs with circles on my bamboo. My favorite was the one with orangic circles randomly overlapping each other. Henry, my fiance, picked the one that I arranged some polka dots into floating flowers in various sizes. My sister (and my matron of honor) picked the one I did by layering different size and thickness of circles into flowers with stems (she thought they were lollipops).

With so many different opinions swaying me, I absolutely couldnt decide which one to be the final one, so I decided to have them all (wouldnt life be so much easier if we could do that whenever we cant make up our minds?).


I loved the random organic circles, they looked adorable to me :) Or maybe simply because i hand drew each one of them

The polka dot flower design is simple and clean

This lollipop layout is very whimsical.

Which one is your favorite?
