Beautiful Babies

Along with having the pleasure of designing invitations for weddings, we also have had the honor of designing announcements and invitations for the other most important event in someone's life--having a baby ;) Here are a few samples of what we've been up to lately on the baby side of things:
We had the pleasure of working with the Romero Family on designing an announcement for their son Austin James (isn't he precious?) Here is the first design we came up with, a simple folded design with a ribbon closure and a peek-a-boo of the baby.

Our second design was an accordion fold announcement...
Showcasing the precious newborn:

This allowed the couple to show off multiple pictures of the baby...hands, face, and feet.

And our last design was a simple and sweet rectangular announcement:

How do you choose?
The new parents went for the accordion design, they liked it modern sweet design and how it revealed their beautiful bouncing boy in multiple shots. After the creation of this concept, it has become a huge success with other parents.

This next project was for a baby shower. The inspiration was the baby's nursery, which exudes sweet elegance with the pinks, frills, and feminine details.

We tried to incorporate all of the elements of the nursery in the invite. The invite was actually a small pillow which was mailed in a small strawberry box with a striped green sash. The event information was printed on the fabric, and backed on light green card stock to give it some sturdiness

We used pinks and greens, and a small rosebud on a diaper pin to incorporate the sweetness of the new baby girl's nursery.

Finally, to give it some sparkle, we attached three tiny rhinestones to the three "i"s in the mom-to-be's name.
The result was pretty, soft, sweet, and feminine.

Now what mom-to-be wouldn't want that? :)

Wonderful Weddings

We have been incredibly busy the last couple months here at 2 Hearts B 1! It is definitely wedding season, and we have been meeting with brides with all kinds of wonderful, beautiful ideas for their weddings! Inspiration can be found everywhere, and lately we have had the opportunity to create invitations that are inspired by the visions of our brides!

Here is a small sampling of the invitations we have created lately.

Inspiration for this invite was that the couple was getting married at the Figueroa Hotel in downtown Los Angeles and wanted to play off this blue door with a Moroccan feel.

We took the beautiful colors and intricate designs and incorporated them into a gatefold-style invitation.

This next couple chose a color palette of emerald green, chocolate brown, and silver.

The result was fresh, romantic, and elegant.

Finally, our next bride was inspired by all things soft, feminine, and elegant...hence her palette of pinks, whites, and silvers, accented by flowers and pearls.

Here are some photos that inspired us:
