{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!

{Frosting Friday} Cheers to Mom!

Since it is our tradition to celebrate all things sweet here on the blog on Fridays, I thought this Friday would be a perfect opportunity to give a shout out to one of the sweetest people in my life--my mom!

About a month ago, we had the chance to spend a few days together while we attended the Scrapbooking Expo in San Diego. There's nothing better than spending some girl time with your mom, doing something you love, and then indulging on some yummy food after the day's over! Here are a few photos from our fun together:

At the expo, we enjoyed all the different workshops and checking out new products. Mom is holding up an adorable album and line of papers by Simple Stories.

Love her!

After a day of walking, shopping, and creating, we were ready to eat! 
Truluck's in San Diego was the perfect place to end our day!

Here's a look at what we ordered (it's making me hungry just thinking about it)…

The wedge salad

 King crab claws :)

Crab macaroni and cheese…oh yeah

 Chilean sea bass with parmesan potatoes…can you say heaven?
The food was phenomenal and the service was just as excellent! Our server, Jaime, was a doll and treated my mom like a queen! She really made our experience there special.
I would highly recommend trying Truluck's if you're in the area; you'll be glad you did!

So here's to my best friend and the best mom a girl could ask for!
And here's to a fabulous weekend for you!

Thank you dear readers for stopping by!

{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! :)

Let us know how we can help you create the perfect invitation for your next bridal shower or event!
And have a wonderful Thursday :)

{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!
