Bi-Weekly Recap 4/19-5/8/09

Okay - so its more like a tri-weekly recap. I suppose that I will always push these things one week past the due date until I am doing a Yearly Recap!

Well, I made it through Stacy's first ever vacation from this place...and now it's her turn to make it through mine. I leave for LA on Tuesday and will be gone through the 19th. So....from May 12th - 19th, we will be open regular hours but with walk-ins only. (We schedule appointments so that our brides can have one-on-one attention and when only one of us is on staff, we have to be able to handle everything that comes our way - phones, walk-ins, etc.) I guess now also seems like a good time to remind you that we will be closed June 13th - June 22nd for family vacation. Now I know it must seem like we travel ALOT - but I swear - this is the first time we have taken time off in YEARS. It just so happened that each of us had an out-of-state obligation during peak wedding season PLUS we are taking our FIRST family vacation in 14 years! Since we are sisters and all, it wasn't fair for one of us to miss out on that - so we will be closing for the week.

Here are a few things we have been working on over the past three weeks:
Catalog Wedding Invitation: Love Birds

This ensemble is one of my catalog favorites. The cool thing about working with it this time, is that the bride was able to work in the rich purple she was using. Although it is not shown in the photo above, we were able to add a purple layer behind the teal layer using custom cut Envelopments products.

Catalog Wedding Invitation: Red Roses

These were for a Red, Black and White wedding. I love the detail brought to the ensemble by the red deckled edges on the invite, response and reception card and all the envelopes!

Catalog Wedding Invitation: Shimmer Pocketfold

Here is a color scheme we have shown before, but in a totally different layout. The Paper Duvet Catalog allows you to mix and match from several different layouts - and several different paper colors to create your own one-of-a-kind pocketfold ensemble.
Catalog Wedding Invitation: Seal and Send
I love the combination of this Ecru Seal and Send with Navy Blue Lettering - it's quite simple and elegant and at a great price!

Custom Baby Shower Invitation
This baby shower invite was custom made for a former bride who is expecting her first child (a girl!) in three short months! This design features Envelopments original artwork.

Catalog Wedding Invitation: Black Pocketfold
This is another mix and match style of pocket and this color combo was perfect for the brides Hawaiian wedding / Ohio reception. This came from the Carlson Craft Pockets album...and we just got our newest edition with 12 new layouts!

Catalog Wedding Invitation: Black and White Recycled Invite
This invitation comes from the Naturally Ever After Album and features 30% recycled papers. The rich texture of the paper with the simple black and white photograph combine to form a unique, simple, elegant ensemble.

Custom Photo Thank You Cards
These thank you cards are for April's Featured Bride.

Custom Wedding Invitation: Gold and Navy Pocketfold
This custom pocketfold was made for a bride using the Claddagh theme throughout. Although it is not pictured here, the front of the invitation includes a tab with the symbol on it and will be the first thing the guests see when opening the envelopes.

Catalog Invitation: 50th Wedding Anniversary
We don't get to see too many clients who are celebrating their 50th anniversary...but to meet one who is more in love today than 50 years ago is an amazing feeling! We can't wait to work on matching photo bookmarks which will be given to all guests.

Custom Wedding Invitation: Lime Green and Persimmon
We loved how these turned out! The floral pattern on the invite and small bird detail on the insert tied everything together to create the natural feel this bride and groom was looking for.

Custom Wedding Invitations: Black, Ecru and Red Flourish
These were made for someone extremely dear to our hearts....and maybe I am biased, but I LOVE them. I especially love the artwork on the design and how it is split between the inserts.
Custom Thank You Note: Polka Dots - Black, Pink and Lime
These are from our custom thank you card line - and were made to match an invitation featured a couple of weeks ago. We are also doing some favor tags and table numbers with the same theme and those should be featured on the blog in the next few weeks.
