I am very excited that we finally got our invitations out and we are already getting response cards back. Chris and I designed our invites ourselves, and I am super happy with the way they turned out.
The front has beautiful peonies (my favorite flower) and a gingham back. We also branded all the pieces with the four leaf clover since Chris and I met on St. Patrick’s day!

Today I am sharing Laura and Josh’s wedding invitations with you. Josh is a graphic designer and did them himself. I think they turned out great!
The invitations started out unique from the begining. They used vellum envelopes and created a sticker with their wedding logo on the front.
The sticker folded over to the opposite side and showed through all the bright colors of their wedding!
Josh branded their wedding with this little logo. Isn’t it pretty! They put it on everything to make a cohesive statement.
Notice in the background of the invite Josh shaded with the logo repeated over and over again.
They finished off the back with a great quote Laura likes.
I just love the unique way they turned out! Would you ever do your own invitations?
So before I dive into the frenzy of planning my wedding I have my sisters coming up in July! This weekend is the bachelorette party and I am pumped. Here are the invitations. I tried to take my maid of honor responsibilities seriously by scrap-booking them by hand. I love the way they turned out. I used Laura’s colors: pink, yellow, and green. And of course I used print mixing in the paper!
All prep materials! I always use spray glue for scrapbooking. It works really well and never makes the paper bulky. I also have a scrapbook cutter. It makes every cut perfect and straight.
Making the first cut. It took a bit of time to cut all the paper down. Long pieces for the yellow and white and squares for the green and white zebra.
Here is my mess! I always need a big table to spread out!
I printed the writing on pink paper. However I needed someway to cut everything down to a circle. So I used a glass prep dish to make a circle template for cutting. It worked out perfectly!
I needed a way to make a clean fold on the paper. I ended up using the ruler for a straight cut and a wooden cuticle tool to create a line for the fold. Once I created a little divot the fold was clean and flawless.
Me making the clean line! Don’t mind my Sunday outfit!
Here are all the pieces glued together!
And the nice folded yellow.
Invitation all folded up. I also cut down a green piece to make a band around the invite. I didn’t want it to be the boring white. It needed some color. Layering the green paper with the fun orange and silver ribbon ended up great! I love it! I also lined the envelopes with an additional fun pop of color.
All tucked in!
Don’t you love the way they turned out? I do! Can’t wait for the party!
So I am super excited for tonight. I am having all my friends over for dinner in the park. I am hoping it all works out, weather permitting. I will share pics. I hope all goes well!
Happy Friday All!
Like I mentioned yesterday I am having a ladies brunch. To make it a little more special a couple weeks ago I sent out invitations. Didn’t they turn out cute? I love them. I also lined the envelope with some fun scrapbook paper. I like how the two create some fun print-mixing.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Will share pics next week!
Hey All! Glad to be back! February was so busy! Hope everyone enjoyed Laura’s posts last week! She does so many good projects. Before I left for vacation I put all the Bridal Shower invites in the mail. Since everyone has gotten them by this point I wanted to share them. I am not very good yet at photoshop so I sketched out what I wanted and my boyfriend helped put it into reality.
