Buffalo Plaid Children's Birthday Invitations

Buffalo plaid: I like to wear it and I also like to design with it! A fall/winter party at a park? Enter a little plaid and some antlers and you have yourself a theme. I love how my friend, Carrie, pulled together such cute ideas for this little birthday celebration. I don't have anything else to say - the cuteness speaks for itself!

These were featured on Oh So Beautiful Paper today! Thank you, Nole, for the feature.

Musical Children's Birthday Invitations

I designed these joint birthday invitations for my nieces, Madeleine and Charlotte. They love their music class, so Laura threw the party there. It was so fun for the kiddos and entertaining for the parents and adults. Also, there was pizza and cake, so this preggo had a good time!

Merry Christmas!

As I wrap up for the year, I just wanted to quickly share our Christmas cards. I just ordered my design from Minted and we went non-photo this year, with a few pictures of us and Marley on the back.  I love the simplicity of this design and especially the die-cut shape. It kind of makes it, don't you think?

I hope your time with friends and family is magical. I can't help but daydream about our next Christmas with our little babe, but for this year, I am enjoying ALL the baby kicks and the extra special treatment you get when you're preggo. 

Wishing you a joy filled Merry Christmas and New Year! See you in 2016!

Custom Design: Letterpress Holiday Cards

Puricelli Holiday Card 001.jpg

Unlike most stationery designers, I steer clear of selling holiday cards this time of year. I design a collection for Minted in the spring and summer, so I like focus on that and try to avoid the holiday chaos of last minute orders and rush printing. However, I have a handful of repeat clients that I make room for during this busy time. Jen is one of those clients, as she always is ready to go, and we are done well before Thanksgiving (dream client!) She found me last year and has a love of letterpress and clean design, so we have turned out to be a great match!

Jen always has clever ideas, from colors to phrases, with photos to match. You can tell she gets a lot of joy out of the process and I love that. She came to me with this sweet phrase and adorable photo of her kids and I got to work on a fun, festive design. At first, I designed everything in red, but she wanted to go non-traditional with a bright turquoise. I love her color choices. Her cards are certain to stand out in the mailbox with those green envelopes!  

Letterpress is such a beautiful printing method and I love the challenge of designing in one color… sometimes, that is all you need! I think the end result is pure magic (pun intended!)

Inspiration: Golden Cotton Field Shoot with Rachel Leigh Photography

This gorgeous inspiration shoot is from this time last year, and I forgot to post on the blog. It was featured on 100 Layer Cake. These photos seem fitting this year with the warm temps. Even done in the winter this golden sunset shoot feels so warm and cozy! It's so festive too. I just love every detail!

She used the Carley Invitation suite and I love how the gold foil worked so well with the other details.
