{Calligraphy Monday} Baby Baptism Invitation


Hello friends!

Today we're sharing a simple yet elegant baby baptism invitation that we did for a dear client--in fact, Brittany & Javier were one of our wedding couples, and you can see their gorgeous wedding details here


Fast forward a few years, and now this amazing couple has a sweet baby girl!
Brittany and Javier's sweet daughter Amaya was getting baptized, and we couldn't think of a more beautiful way to honor the occasion than with a handwritten invitation done in calligraphy. 

Thank you Javier & Brittany for letting us be a part of your daughter's special day! :)

Have a wonderful Monday!

{Invitations} Elegant Pink & Gray Baby Shower Invitation


There is something so sweet about doing baby shower invitations--we just can't get enough of them :)
It's so fun infusing the invitation with the momma's style while making it showcase the little one at the same time.


It's a little hard to tell from the coloration in this photo, but we used a silver shimmer envelope and card stock as the base for this invitation.

A white card stock was printed with grays and pinks, and embellished with a pretty ribbon sash and sparkle detail on the flourishes. The envelope was lined with a coordinating pink polka dot paper to spread the news, "We're tickled pink!" :)

We love the elegant feel of this invite, and the design could easily be modified for a variety of occasions (including a baby shower for a boy, simply by changing the pinks out for blues or greens).

For more "tickled pink" inspiration, check out our inspiration boards on Pinterest and the invitations we created from them :









Have a wonderful Wednesday! :)

{Invitation} Simple & Sophisticated Bridal Shower


Hi there!

Today we're featuring a bridal invitation that is pretty, simple, and sophisticated…all of our favorite things! Take a look!


A shimmer silver enclosure is fastened with a sparkly silver sash. To secure the sash, a pretty paper flower detail topped with a sparkly embellishment completes the enclosure and wraps up the invitation beautifully!


The inside of the invitation features a pretty pink ombre paper matted with a mint card stock. The beautiful fonts lend elegance and the small rhinestone embellishment gives it that hint of sparkle. 

Bridal shower perfection! :)

{Calligraphy Monday} West Elm Recap & Gold Calligraphy


Hi there!

Can you believe it's Monday again? And not only that, but the first Monday in August! This summer is going by so fast!
I saw this quote on Pinterest the other day and thought it was the perfect way to describe the month of August:


Isn't that true?
August is like the last hoorah before school goes back and work gets busier for many of us. Kind of like a Sunday--you're so happy it's Sunday, but there's also that slightly bittersweet thought of the new week starting.

Oh August.
We're going to live you up! :)

Anyways, yesterday was the day of the much-anticipated West Elm Santa Monica Bridal Event



We displayed a variety of invitations, toppers, and place cards...



Here's Mo, one of our beautiful associates! :)


We had so much fun!
The West Elm Santa Monica store was a wonderful backdrop for such a fun event; their products are so beautiful and it was inspiring to set up our paper goods amongst gorgeous home accents.

Thank you to those of you who came out to say hello! We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did :)

Lastly, we wanted to share this fun guestbook we recently did for an engagement shower:


A simple kraft notebook received some sparkle and elegance with gold calligraphy. The couple chose a fun Dr. Seuss quote to embellish the inside, which brings a sense of whimsy to the event:


Isn't this fun? We love it when couples come to us with ideas and inspiration unique to them!
Thank you Zoe & Dan for the honor of creating this guestbook for you!

We hope you have a wonderful Monday!

{Calligraphy Monday} Family Tree Project


One of the best parts about doing what we do is getting to know our clients on a personal level.
Oftentimes we share in aspects of their lives that are not only personal and important, but are memories in the making. It is truly a privilege.

One recent example of this privilege is when we had the opportunity to create and illustrate a family tree project for a client.

After hours of planning how the design would look in a large, illustrated format, Jillian began the process of meticulously writing each person's name, years, and important locations on the paper.



She also drew the illustrations by hand, based on inspirations from the client.


The family crests were incorporated as well.



What an honor it was to share in the history of this client's family!
The time, planning, and attention to detail paid off to create a family heirloom that will hopefully be treasured for generations to come! Thank you, Lou, for allowing us to help you create this special representation of your family's history.


We also wanted to remind our readers that we will be participating in West Elm Santa Monica's Bridal Event this Sunday, August 3rd, from 12 to 2pm!

*As of today, there were 20 spots left!
Don't forget you MUST rsvp in order to attend!*
**Rsvp HERE to snag your spot to this fabulous event!**

Have a great week! :)
