I live in Southport with my partner Paul. I have two fantastic children .... Craig 25, and Becca 18, who I am so proud of and wouldn't swap for anything in the world.    We sadly lost a special part our family, our cat Sibby last year, and now have a new family member who has quickly taken over the house ...... our rescue cat Boswell !!!

My Biggest Challenge Yet ... Wedding Stationary


 Wedding Stationary For A Family Friend

This was quite a challenge, as I needed to produce exactly what the 
Bride and Groom wanted, for their special day .... 
And I'm happy to say, they  were very happy with the finished stationary so I think I
must have achieved this !!
Thank You To Gemma and Ross For Agreeing To Me Sharing Their Stationary
 On My Blog.


Save The Date Card



Invitations 

Pouch Style Outer With Three Inserts



Order Of Service

A5 Booklet With Paper Insert



I designed the stationary using Serif Craft Artist.  

I created the bunting embellishment using single heart elements
 and changed the colour to the desired shade.

All the stationary was printed on my Canon Printer, 
onto Centura Pearl Snow White Silver Card.
The hearts are a dusky pink and yellow, with dusky pink writing 
(unfortunately the colours have not photographed well).

The invitation inserts were loosely fastened together
 with heart patterned gross grain ribbon, in a complementary shade,
to allow guests to easily detach and use the included 'RSVP' card.
The front of the pouch was embellished with aurora borealis gems.

The Order Of Service booklets were a challenge .... 
Originally planned as a single card, it soon became clear the amount of 
information needed would not fit on ....
So a rethink resulted in the A5 booklet with a paper insert ... a perfect alternative!!

I also made additional elements to tie in with the stationary theme ....
Typed Cards With Poems From The Bride To Parents,
Signs For The Reception 
Cards With The Readings For The Ceremony
