something I'm working on

hi there internet -

I am super excited to share a sneak peek with you today.

I have been lucky enough to help two brides (not including myself) with the paper for their weddings. This is one of my favorite things to do. I love paper. And I love brides and weddings. And I love working individually with a bride to give her exactly what she wants, while staying in a reasonable budget.

Here are a few pictures of my own wedding paper, which I made myself.

I hand tore each piece of paper for each invite. We had our wedding at the beach, so I wanted water, transparency, and blue and brown involved....but not in a cheesy way. There is nothing wrong with using shells and "beachy" themes in a wedding invite, but that just wasn't my style. I researched and worked for a long time designing these and I was so happy with the result.

I used 110 lb cold press water color paper and vellum. I bought the brown envelopes pre-made from That is one of my favorite places to get paper and envelopes from. They are reasonably priced and have good quality products. They will also cut and/or perforate any paper for a reasonable price.

And now....a sneak peek of what I'm working on for my most recent client.
