Twin Baby Shower

When our friend Nicolette was pregnant with twins, a boy and girl, we didn’t want to throw a baby shower that was too “baby-ish”. The inspiration for the shower was Noah’s Arc & the animals “two by two”. The shower was held at The Rose Establishment, a coffee and tea shop in downtown Salt Lake City. Letterpress stationery included invitations complete with washi tape detail and favor tags (guests filled their own tea bags with assorted loose teas). The girls started a tradition of giving the babies our favorite books when I was pregnant with my first son two years ago. I printed personalized bookplates for the twin’s library as a keepsake from the event. We decorated the table with newspaper boats, air plants and succulents, and place cards were flagged on blue velvet jar cakes for each guest. (The blue velvet turned out darker than we expected, but Nicolette’s favorite color is black anyway and they were delicious.) We used inexpensive quilting fabric for table runners in alternating pink and green patterns and my next project is to make them into lap quilts for the babies. Hopefully by time they are born! Erica and Caleb from the The Rose Establishment made a variety of delicious tea sandwiches and salads; refreshments included Hibiscus Mint iced tea and tea service.

June Barn Wedding

I had the pleasure of working with this adorable bride from Colorado just this past spring. She wanted to bring in rustic elements from her Barn venue in combination with her 'shades of blue' color palette. Rachel was able to tell me a few main specifics about what she liked and didn't like and then gave me a lot of freedom with the design, which was a great way for us to collaborate on this custom piece. Congrats Rachel & Jeremy!

Vaggeli's First Stationery


The most interesting man in the world needs stationery too, right? Even at 20 months, this gentleman charms the ladies by putting pen, er... crayon, to paper. Blind impression + FP Muscletone Starch White = a quick afternoon project giving Mr. Tsoutsounakis the perfect note to express his thoughtfulness! I'll admit I wasn't entirely creative with the use of the 'Geli' typeface, but I fell in love with this quirky type. It does after all share a nickname with my quirky muse... :)

M & A: Engagement Invites


I just recently finished these custom invitations for a local couple celebrating their engagement this month, Congrats Magda & Anthony! Magda wanted to incorporate a script typeface that she liked as well as her love of all things that sparkle. She also wanted the invitations to be fun and casual. I think the resulting color scheme captures her style perfectly and I love the contrasting copper glitter to add a little warmth in such a cold month. Magda also chose to go with a thicker, 220 lb. Lettra, which allowed for a lovely, deep impression on the blind run.
