Inspiration Boards Just Got Easier

I love inspiration boards but damn if they aren't time consuming to create! I've made a few in Photoshop and the process is close to maddening. If you're like me and love the final product but hate the pain of creation, cheer up! Minted has launched a new, easy way to make your own. Not only can you make your own, you can submit your best wedding inspiration board to their current contest and win big bucks in Minted credit!

Watch the video and you'll see just how easy it is.

Client Spotlight: Laya

Laya contacted me about creating some additional elements for her previously purchased wedding invitation that she could print on her own (lucky girl has a friend with a printshop!). We used Etsy's handy little Alchemy function and I got to work.

The first item was a two-sided card with a map on the font and directions on the backside.
Then I got to work on creating her table numbers.
Once she had them printed she put them into silver frames and posted photos of them to her blog.
Laya decided to give all her guests a pair of photo coasters as favors, so I designed a little insert for them to tie everything together.

I also created a menu, flat note card for thank yous and her ceremony program.

Check out a sneak peek of the beautiful bride and her fantasic wedding here!
Congratulations Laya!!

Custom Map & Direction Cards

When I unpacked my computer I found 6 requests for custom map and direction cards!! Somehow I've managed to finish them up and I think they all turned out great.

Inspired by her invitations in navy, seen here:

Thanks Renee, Jennifer, Rachael, Elizabeth, Melissa & Joy!
