i made these save the dates for my upcoming wedding in berkeley, ca in august. i created the design with illustrator and then laser cut them on 1/16th inch plywood. i hand painted some with watercolors and left some unpainted to emphasize the material itself. i have additional photos i can send, as well as the actual save the dates if you would like to have one. mailing them was tricky because they are somewhat fragile so we sandwiched the between sage-y green museum board and chip board and tied them all together with a ribbon. as far as we’ve heard they all made it to everyone safe and sound!

Julianne wrote to me last week after I was having a pretty crappy day, and totally changed it around with her note. Apparently, she’s been trying to come up with a theme for a party she’s hosting, and after seeing the Esther Coombs cakestand post, came up with a modern tea party theme! She put together this inspiration that day and I just had to show it off here, it would make a great bridal shower! Thanks Julianne!

When you’re getting married
Where in Brooklyn you’d like your shoot to take place.
Its always a thrill for me to see a good friend do something amazing like start a business…Erica and I have been chatting about this day for a while, so I’m glad to finally be able to introduce Thoughtful Day to you! Erica has designed a line of wedding stationery that is mix and match, so that each is customized to your own tastes without going custom!
The Melodie Collection allows couples to mix or match their letterpressed wedding invitation suites. The option is completely up to them. This allows couples to not only come up with their own unique collection, but also pick a collection that will fit within their budget. The collection prices are not fixed, which allows couples to be creative with not only the look of their wedding invitation suite but also the price. The Melodie Collection can work with all budgets! You may opt to pick a two color letterpressed invitation and a one color letterpressed rsvp to help with cost, the freedom to choose is what the Melodie Collection is all about. All four of the themes work mixed together or completely matched. The choice is yours! There are three shown colorways, but custom colors are available as well.
I’m in love with all Erica’s work and know you will be too, so head over to Thoughtful Day and check everything out! [Did you know she did the B-List branding AND my own wedding totes too??] So proud of you girl! Check out the blue colorway over at 100 Layer Cake.
As for me, I’m taking the rest of the week off…planning a conference is not easy work and I need a little breather! I’ll be back on Monday…
