Winter Weather

I love winter.  I really do.  This morning though, after spending more than a week in sub-zero temperatures, I said (for maybe the first time in my life) that I was ready for winter to be over.  But my Saint Bernard puppy is still enjoying it!

I'm ready for spring, but it looks like we've still got at least a few more weeks of winter weather left.  At least it's pretty!  Here are some of my favorite winter-inspired designs.

This is one of my newest winter designs.  I'm in love with the simplicity and colors.
I printed one on my pearl metallic cardstock and it was simply stunning.

More snowflakes, but paired with a less commonly 
used color for winter. I love the bright contrast!

Who says you have to give up flowers/foliage just because it's winter?
Bright red berries paired with white flowers and a wooden plank 
background is a truly gorgeous combination.

And this year's winter roundup just wouldn't be complete
without an homage to one of my new favorite movies!

Stay safe and warm!

I adore pocketfold invitations for weddings.  They are a simple and elegant way to keep all of your wedding stationery together and they look just lovely.  These are some of my favorite pocketfold invitation designs from the past couple of years.

I love the combination of bright blue with brown kraft accents.

This champagne metallic cardstock is just dreamy.
I used it for my Christmas cards last year.

I created this design for a handmade invitation contest last year.
It was inspired by a good friend's wedding in the Georgia mountains.

Recently I decided to try a new type of pocketfold invitation, in 
which the invitation is bracket shaped.  I love how it turned out!

And don't forget--even if you are a DIY bride, you can purchase any of my invitation designs to print yourself and put together your own pocketfold invitations!

Happily Ever After

I grew up as a true tomboy.  Tree-climbing, scar-acquiring, dirt in my hair, mud under my fingernails tomboy. Sometime after high school, my love for all things princess emerged with a passion that seems to be making up for all the years I spent playing with bugs and trucks.  I have to admit that designing princess invitations is one of my favorite past-times.  Enjoy these new creations, which are fun for kids and adults alike!
