A little sample

It's always nice to receive a sample of how my artwork has been used so I was delighted to receive this the other day from Design Design.

They've done such a great job - I especially love how it's been printed on a lovely recycled stock and comes with a brown envelope, just my sort of thing! I'm very very proud to have my name on the back.
Luckily for me they've sent quite a few and I happen to know of two very important babies due at the end of the they'll be receiving a special card from Aunty* Rachel when they arrive.

* Not technically an aunty to either one but I'm going to to encourage the name!

They've done a really nice job of artworking the inside of the card

I was very pleased to receive a lovely email from Beyond Beyond telling me they'd featured our invites on their 'Design Envy' section of their blog. You can see the post here.

And they're out!

Hurrah! Hurrah! Saturday was an exciting day for me as I sent out our wedding invitations. Everyone should have received them by now so I can finally share my designs with you. At first I was quite nervous about the task of designing the invites. As well as wanting to represent us as a couple, our tastes and the feel of our wedding, I also felt I had the added pressure of how I wanted to represent myself as a designer. But that's just a personal (perfectionist) thing of mine.

I'm so pleased with the finished result. We're having an autumnal wedding with pie and mash, ginger cocktails* and pale ale. I think the invite represents the general theme of the day pretty well. I've loved designing these and so glad they're out now and I can concentrate on other wedding planning tasks - it's just over 3 months to go and we still don't have completed outfits!

Some little info cards for our guest with directions, gift list details etc

The RSV...Pie card (David's idea - well done David!) means our guests can choose what lovely Pieminister pie they'd like to eat. We first had these pies at End of the Road Festival in 2008 and said at the time 'if we ever get married, this is what we'll have for the meal'

* Specific recipe to be finalised

Lovely Chris and Richard at ibrow media printed the invites for me and they've done a great job!

pop ups, pop ups

I've been a busy bee over the past couple of weeks designing and making (lots of cuttin' n stickin') some new pop up designs. Here's a little sneak peek of some

Cuttin' n stickin'

Oh I do love to cut and stick! My mum is making some cupcakes for a friends party and asked me to do some sort of label to show the different flavours. I don't do things by half when I'm asked something like that so have designed and made these nifty little signs. Hope she likes them....
