girly summer pool party

This summer I had the pleasure of making summer pool party invitations for my two cousins ages 12 and 9. the both had different themes and different parties. I helped them pick out their themes and proceeded to develop a look for each girly party. 

Makenzie Had a summer luau, complete with leis and hibiscus place cards for each of the 7 girls that came to her party, Mak's favorite color is blue so we went with a dark blue and a light blue combination. i printed on textured ivory card-stock. and lined the envelops with blue paper

Mikalyn just wanted a beach summer theme and her favorite color was pink, She also loves hot pink and orange together as a color combination. I printed on iridescent ivory paper and designed labels to match. We lined the envelops with orange paper. Mikey loved them and was really exited to share with all her friends.

This Design is very close to my heart... because it is MY OWN WEDDING :)
inspired by summer, and and the personalities of my husband and myself, i created a fun energetic composition with a unifying graphic and color scheme. I hand made the green paper wrap that enclosed the layered information cards.

thank you notes...

Ashley Lynn

Here is a Design I did for elegant evening June wedding. 
The idea behind it was to capture elegance and formality while at the same time be bold and unique. I used a typical script typeface and embellished it, using shapes from the border design
and utilizing the strengths of the typeface.

a little out of order PAPER MAKING

Here is my experience making paper for my wedding invitations i really
don't think i will ever make this amount of hand made paper again in my life but it was fun and i do want to make some more some day! so these steps are not really for following just so you can see what we did :)

Step:1 we shred newsprint and blend it one part newsprint two parts
water and add green acrylic paint to color it it ends up looking like
something from ghostbusters hehehe

Step:2 then we put about one blender-full per Tub of water and
sifted the paper pulp around on a canvas frame with screen
duck taped on (hot pink ducktape to be exact!)

Step:3 gently swaying the screen back and forth we would
get a some what even coat of pulp on the screen

Step:4 you then sponge off as much moisture as possible
using a blotting cloth of some kind

Step:5 enslave a friend to help you put the paper onto a
screen or glass surface to dry :)

i found this a year later gee it would have helped :P
