A White Monochromatic Theme does not have to be boring…

These luxurious invitations feature an RSVP that is tucked perfectly into the front of the invitation.  Perfect for those who prefer a unique twist to the pocket fold invitation.

Summer, how I’ve missed you…

Now that winter is *almost* a memory and we roll almost straight into summer with these destination inspired invitations! A wedding and vacation?  Who could ask for more!

These invitations will be featured at the 7th annual BlushPretty Beauty Board on May 5th!  An intimate affair featuring Toronto’s best brands!  Get your tickets at http://thebeautyboard7-eorg.eventbrite.com/#

The Vietnamese RSVP and Directions…

The Mirror

English, Vietnamese…Vietnamese, English…which ones goes first?   It’s up to you.

(…and yes, the RSVP & directions are available in Vietnamese as well)

An Elegant Engagement

There are few things in life I love more than paper.  And this elegant piece of stationery is no exception.  With cursive font and a clean layout, this piece gently calls to every woman’s inner Audrey Hepburn.  Don’t say no!

The simple, yet gorgeous Save the Date is printed on luxurious 140lbs off-white specialty paper.  It requires no ribbon or rhinestone to mar its simplicity. 

Contact me for any details on pricing.

You’re Just My Type - Save the Dates

Let the world know you’ve found the WRITE person in your life.  Great for a themed wedding, vintage or a black and white affair.  Or send them out because you love them; there’s no wrong reason, really!

The Save the Date is printed on smooth 140lbs specialty paper, with crisp type-inspired font paired with type writer inspired images.  Have you found your type?

The Finishing Touches

Leave your guests pleasantly surprised with these personalized tags on their gift.  It’s always the simple things that can leave a lasting impression.

These tags are created on heavy, luxurious paper in a lilac and gold-colored theme.  Reinforced hole and paired with a matching white and gold ribbon.

We’re Engaged!

July 1st is Canada Day and what a great time to send out your Save the Dates.  Humorous and colorful announcements help distinguish your cards from the many others that are sent out throughout the year. 

By sending a chuckle, it also associates your wedding with good feelings.

To Your Very Own Queen Mother

You Name it!
