Kari's Wedding Invitation

  You know that feeling of delight that you get when you open your mailbox and see that big white envelope that can only be a fabulous wedding invitation? Well multiple that excitement by 100 and you will get the feeling I get when I receive an invitation sample from a Design Service Only – Print Yourself client.

  Kari’s destination wedding invitation has me craving a walk on the beach!  Kari and Jacob have chosen  Florida to say their vows and I had the joy of designing her beach-breezy wedding invitations. Kari wanted a look that was elegant and sophisticated with a touch of a casual beach feeling. She showed me photos of a beach with flowing white fabric, and I could immediately feel the sand on my feet and feel the breeze from the ocean. I was perfectly inspired to design a personalized invitation for the beautiful couple.

   Kari printed the design that I made on textured watercolor paper and inserted them into a navy blue pocket fold. All of the details came together so perfectly. I will be waiting on the edge of my seat to see the photos from this wedding! Thank you Kari and Jacob!

The invitation makes a statement about your event, the first impression your guest will get about your big day. Let me help you set the tone and style with color, monogram design and typography.

House Watercolor Paintings

I'm so excited to share these custom commissioned house watercolor paintings. An illustrated house is the perfect way to pay tribute to your home! Capture the nostalgia of your childhood home in a gift for your parents or siblings, celebrate a new home in a gift for your spouse, or surprise a friend with their favorite piece of architecture.

This makes the perfect gift for so many occasions...
House Warming
Mothers Day
Fathers Day
First Home
Parent/Grandparent Gift
Realtor Closing Gift

These paintings were ordered as Christmas gifts.  The first is from a daughter to her parents, of the house she grew up in. They had recently moved, and this was the perfect nostalgic gift for them to remember the house where their children grew up.
The next is from a wife to a husband, to celebrate their first house together and so many memories they have built starting their family.

Safari Birthday Invitations

It was so wonderful to meet Jenny all the way from Australia. Her adorable little boy is turning the big 1.  She loved the Safari invitations featured on my blog and wondered if she could order them in time for her little man’s big birthday celebration. I was happy to offer her a design service to create the invitations that she could print herself in Australia. Here is how cute they came out:

It was also great to meet Ana from New York, who also loved my safari invitations. These safari invitations were inspired by all things travel – passports, boarding passes – and of course cute animals! Instead of a photo front, she requested animal illustrations. I think it came out adorable! It has been wonderful to get to meet from all over the globe and share my designs with them. Thank you! 

Commisioned Watercolor Painting

I had so much fun creating this wishing dandelion watercolor for Crystal. I started with a small loose sketch style to get a  feel for what she liked, then finished with a larger painting.

Here was my small sketch version:

Here is my final version:
 Thank you Crystal for the opportunity to paint this for your family. I'm so touched that it has a special meaning to you!
