Sketched Wedding Invitations

I'm so excited to share with you a new line of wedding invitations I've been working on! A couple of weeks ago I posted a stationery set of chevron cards I made in my Etsy shop. I've been getting such positive feedback from them I wanted to explore that side of design and come up with some invitations that were hand drawn as well. 

While most of my other invite suites are heavy on cutting and assembling unique and beautiful paper, these are more focused on a funky, artsy theme where the drawings and patterns stand out, not the paper. I used color pencils and paint pens because I LOVE the look of colored pencil more than any other tool. It can be soft or vibrant but never harsh. 

I'm so excited to add to this collection! Stay tuned because I'll be posting some other colored pencil projects I've been working on later this week!

Holiday Cards!

Well, hey there! Happy four days until Thanksgiving! I LOVE Thanksgiving because I am completely and utterly obsessed with pumpkin. And what better excuse to power through three jars of pumpkin butter than on Thanksgiving?!

The holidays crept up on me this year (don't they always?) but I've been working hard on some holiday cards for the past couple of weeks and I can't wait for you guys to see them. I have a nice little variety of Christmas and holiday designs so go check them out in my Etsy shop!

Birthday Gift Tags

So I was working on some Christmas card ideas this weekend (I know, I'm one of THOSE people. It isn't even a week into November yet...) and I came across my little cupcake wrappers a la Martha Stewart at Michael's that I've used for some past projects. With it feeling more like spring/summer than fall in San Diego I channeled that bright energy into some colorful birthday gift tags.

I put them up on Etsy so if you don't feel like making your own, you are more than welcome to mine :)
