{Wedding Wednesday} Beautiful Orange & Navy Wedding Invitations


Hi there!

Today we're showcasing some gorgeous wedding invitations we did for a wonderful client a few months ago. Sofia and (her now husband) Dmitry got married in Miami earlier this year, then decided to do another wedding celebration in September with family in Spain! What a marvelous idea! :)



We did a shimmer card stock enclosure, then matted the actual invitation with navy card stock. The orange printed border gave it a nice pop of color without being too bold, and the gorgeous orange satin ribbon finished it off with a look of luxe elegance. It's fresh and sophisticated at the same time. Who wouldn't be excited to receive one of these invitations?

We were thrilled to be a part of Sofia and Dmitry's wedding celebration--thank you for the opportunity to share in this special time in your lives!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

{Frosting Friday} Royal & Sweet Birthday Card


Hi there and Happy Friday!

Ahhh, Fridays are the best, aren't they? Especially in the midst of school commitments, work, football games, errands, and everything else you have going on in the fall, there's just a sense of relief when Friday arrives.

Today we're sharing one of the cards we designed for our friends at Sweet E's Bake Shop. It's a sweet birthday card with a fun, embellished, 3D cupcake on the front :)


These can be found in the shop, along with many other designs that we've created--and will be sharing on the blog in the weeks to come. So stay tuned, and also stop by Sweet E's to see the selection! And don't forget to pick up a sweet treat of course while you're there! ;)

And if your week has been especially busy or hectic this week, then this sentiment goes out to you too, even if it's not your birthday--you deserve the royal treatment! Take some time this weekend to get a pedicure, read a magazine while sipping your favorite latte, or simply put your feet up and take in the beautiful weather. Whatever you do, take some time to relax and enjoy!

Have a great weekend!

{Invitations} Festive Frozen Birthday Invitations


Hi there!

We're excited to share these adorable Frozen-themed birthday invitations with you all today. We designed them for a friend and think they just turned out adorable! (Thanks to the cutie on the front! ;)


With the popularity of Frozen-themed birthdays right now, we think it's especially important to put your personal touch on the invitation. That's why we loved the addition of the picture of sweet Ainsley in her Frozen costume on this one! Plus the die-cut snowflakes, patterned paper, and vellum give a nice texture and dimension.

Let us know if you need help putting your personal touch on your party invitations--we'd be happy to help! :)

Happy Monday!

{Invitation} Festive Kite Birthday Invitation


I hope this Monday is finding you all doing well!

With one official week of summer left to go (the first day of fall is next Tuesday, September 23rd…it's not like we're counting or anything ;), we are savoring the last moments of the season. We know we will be trading the sun, sand, and outdoor gatherings for scarves and sweaters before we know it…although here in southern California, we are having a major heatwave…so it's hard to even imagine wearing a sweater right now!

Two weekends ago we celebrated Jillian's husband's birthday at a beautiful park in Malibu.

Here was the festive invitation she created for him:


Jillian printed the invitation on a shimmer card stock, then cut it in a diamond-shape to look like a kite. She punched a hole in the bottom, then used a variety of twine and ribbon to create the tail.

An airy, festive, fun birthday invitation, perfect for the beach or park, is the result!

It was a wonderful celebration, full of good food, good friends, and fun. 
So here's your reminder to soak up the rest of the season this week, and give a toast to summer!

Have a wonderful Monday!

{Frosting Friday} Sesame Street-Themed Dessert Table Signage


Hi there!

Today we're showcasing some adorable dessert table signage we did for a client throwing a Sesame Street-themed birthday party. How fun! The desserts from the party were provided by Sweet E's Bake Shop, so  you can imagine how cute they were. 


These were more than just your average tented card…to really give them the Sesame Street vibe, we made tiny signs saying "Happy Birthday Jax!" to pop out of the card. We love the effect!


While we didn't get any photos of the actual party, we found a super cute Sesame Street dessert table on Pinterest that would've been a beautiful setting for our signage!

Hopefully this will provide some inspiration for your next themed party (if you have a little one, that is ;)

We hope you have a sweet weekend!
Happy Friday!

{Frosting Friday} Shake It Up


It's the last Friday of summer!
How are you spending it?

Whatever your plans are this weekend, hopefully you get some time to soak in some rays, eat some yummy food, and hang out with people you love!

Speaking of yummy food and treats, many of you are familiar with our collaboration with the amazing Toast Bakery Cafe. We've had the privilege of creating menus, signage, and custom tags for them, so when they asked us to help put together these special treat packages, of course we were on board!


These cute little packages consist of two small containers that resemble salt and pepper shakers. Instead of salt and pepper, though, they're filled with black and white jelly beans! (Black licorice and coconut flavors, in case you were wondering ;) 

The tags we created say "Shake it up at Toast!"


These packages were given to some of the local hotels, but are also sold in the restaurant.

What a sweet way to deliver a little treat!
If you haven't yet, be sure to stop by Toast for some amazing food and desserts!
You'll be so happy you did!

And make sure to enjoy this last weekend of summer!
We'll be back next week with a taste of fall on the blog :)

Happy Friday!

{Calligraphy Monday} Calligraphy Mixed with Art


It's the last Monday of August lovelies!

Can you believe it? Next Monday we will officially be in the fall season! I am so excited :) You know we love us some fall around here! But we do want to savor this last bit of summer, so we plan to do that this week!

First up, we're sharing a special wedding card we created for a client.
Our client was actually attending a wedding, and wanted to give a card along with their gift that would be a keepsake for the couple to treasure. 
One of the client's family members actually painted this beautiful scene.
She painted it on card stock so that it could be matted on a 5x7 card.


In step 2 Hearts B 1 Designs :)
We created a folded card and adhered the painting to the front; then Jillian wrote the sentiment in calligraphy on the inside.
She finished it by writing the couple's name on the envelope in coordinating green ink.

A perfectly thoughtful and sweet card for a summer wedding, don't you think?

This is just one example of how we can help put the small, finishing touches on your projects to give them that extra pop!
We love this idea and feel so honored to have helped with these special details!

Make sure to enjoy this last summer Monday and we'll see you again on the blog this week!
Don't forget you can also find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter!

XOXO
