up for grabs!

usually i only do custom designs – a client contacts me, describes what they are looking for and then i send them a sketch and we go from there.  that was the plan with this project, but after some consideration the bride decided to go without the save the dates i sketched due to time constraints.

so instead i am left with this design, but no one to call it their own (except me i guess).  it was intended to be folded three times so that when it’s pulled out of an envelope only the bride and groom show and then the next two panels would have all the necessary information written out.

want to make this lonely invitation yours? send me an email at and we’ll work on putting a suite together 🙂  it can be adjusted for a non-military wedding, flowers to match your choices, and of course hair, skin-tone, background color etc.

sprinkles & mr. grizz (aka johanna and jacob) invites

i met these two up at the summer camp that we all worked at in 2009 and 2010 (see silly camp names above).  happy wedding day to a phenomenal couple and probably the sweetest people you’ll ever meet!  photos of the happy couple by (??? – website link coming soon!)

the couple was sure about two things when we met to talk about design ideas:  1) there needed to be a picture and 2) jacob was pretty sold on the idea of having symbols represent their journey together… after several emails to figure out what that would look like… mission accomplished!  we came up with the idea that the band which held the different elements together would show the 4 locations that are most important to their relationship and then we also included a card that told the story of each place.

the return address design from the rsvp was also made into a rubber stamp that was used on the outer envelopes
