Isabella's Invite

A few weeks ago I posted Isabella's Bat Mitzvah save the date... this is her invitation!
It was a really simple and clean card but the way it was printed, very technical.

The card was made of a  thick off-white board duplexed with a soft lilac back and screenprinted in dark purple. The hand painted edges (a technique very popular in America but still new to South Africa) gave it the perfect finish together with the custom made envelope.

I hope you like it and stay tuned to see the stationery and stunning pictures of her party :)

Baby shower invites

Sanell from Buttafly has been photographing beautiful baby borns for a while. But now is her turn to be a mom :)
I met her at the Wedding Expo in Tygervalley Shopping Centre Expo while we were both showcasing our work. A few months ago, she asked me to design the invitations for her baby shower: I just couldn't say no. This is the invitation I designed to honour the mom to be and celebrate the coming of baby Sheyne: I hope you like it.
Wishing Sanell and Ryan lots of happiness and patience in this new chapter of their lives as family! I'm sure you guys will be the best parents ever!

Carnival Party

Happy Friday everyone! finally, here are the pictures of the end of year Carnival Party for! I hope you like them...
For the second consecutive year, the team of asked me to help with the stationery and decor for their function: this time the theme was Carnival Party and the color scheme bright red, turquoise and white.

I not only designed the save the date and invitation but also placemat menus, cocktails menus, welcome signage and order of events, straws and packaging for popcorn plus all the decor that included pinwheels, paper pom-pons, colorful ribbons and a lot more goodies.

As the previous time, I also took photographs during the function - that's not something I normally do but I must admit:  I enjoy it sooo much ;) And one thing that really excited me was  that this time we were able to set a photobooth section with lots of  fun props... It took the guest a little while to get closer and take their pics... by the end of the day, no-one wanted to leave...

And yeay, I think I was able to get some really good shots: here are some of my favorite ones.
