Well Said – A Wedding Bicycle built for two

Rebecca called me about two months ago with a lovely quote she wanted to center her entire invitation design around. The Vintage Lacy Tree was the perfect collection, so I created a tree-scape featuring a tandem bicycle. Rebecca hoped her invite would speak of simple elegance with a vintage flare. The lacy wrap was the […]


An Artful Life – Mapping out the Holidays

I don’t know if anyone else feels as if November has just flown by…but I certainly do! I realized that I need to have my Holiday Party Invitations in the mail by next week!!! A hand-drawn map of my town as the centerpiece for this year’s invite is an idea I have been cooking up […]


Inspired Ink – Liancarlo Revisited

I was compelled to continue with the Liancarlo inspiration from last week. I can’t get enough of the encrusted detail bodice! I am so drawn to the sparkle and texture. I decided to try my hand at a stationery inspiration board ( big thanks to Kathryn from Snippet and Ink for her daily gems). So […]


Well Said – A Sunny Sentiment

Short and sweet this week. I just adore this quote! This sweet design was created for Jody and Randy. I combined happy shades of yellow with my whimsical watercolor tree with sheer shimmer hand-painted details. Does anyone feel like lemonade??


An Artful Life – Something different for the season…

Adam and I throw a Holiday bash every year and this year’s festivities are coming up on December 19th. I have a few rules for the party, it must been fun, we must eat well, it must be pretty and there must always be an element of surprise. This year we came up with a […]


Kristy Says you can tie the perfect knot!

Many of my clients incorporate a simple knot into their invitation designs. A expertly tied knot can give the invitation a clean, classic look or keep all enclosures neat and tidy within the envelope. This is a much requested DIY at the studio. Tying the Perfect knot is not as easy as it may seem. […]


Amy and Damien 08.29.08

In Amy’s Words… Tell us about the one thing you would not change about your wedding, and what is the one thing you would change if you could? I honestly don’t think I would change anything. I put myself in the mind set that the only thing that mattered that day was how much we […]


B&W inspired by Liancarlo

During Bridal Market week I poured over The Bride’s Guide by Darcy Miller for her take on the new bridal designs. I fell in love with the dress below by Liancarlo. I adore the cascading petals – there is such a sense of graceful movement. Image courtesy of The Bride’s Guide by Darcy Miller I […]


Welcome to My Artful Life!

My life as a stationery designer is a crazy, whirlwind one. From one day to the next I can never predict what I might be involved in. From creating original watercolor illustrations to troubleshooting a bug on my blog, I am always trying something new. I however, never stray from the heart of my passion […]


Bouquet jewels rock!

Recently I have been using tiny jewels in a lot of my designs, specifically the Vintage Tree and Vintage Lacy Stamped Collections. I love the touch of glam and twinkle a bit of rhinestone can give a design. Now, everyone has a budget and you know that every little detail can add up in terms […]


Hydrangeas, Dasies, Dogwood

I am so thrilled with the artwork lineup this week! Brides requested my interpretation of a blue hydrangea, white daisy and a dogwood branch. I am also working on a just starting to bloom crimson rose – but that is still too wet to post! I have created many versions of a blue hydrangea but […]
