2011 Christmas cards

Christmas snuck up on me!

Over the next few days I will be uploading my designs for the 2011 Pre-set Christmas cards. This year I am doing something a little differently...I will offer "pre-set" photo cards in which you can change the layout, color and wording at no additional charge but the design stays basically the same. You may choose any new card design OR a previous season's design. All card prices include a 4C printed front and back (unless otherwise requested) and return address on the envelope or return address sticker if you have color envelopes!
Pre-set prices:

50 to 74: $2.25 ea.
75 to 150: $2 ea.
151 to 199: $1.75 ea
200+: $1.50 ea.

50 card minimum.

I will also be offering a completely customizable photo card designed to your specifications. These cards will have color front and back and return address on envelope (or return address sticker if you have color envelopes) included in the pricing as well.
Custom prices:

50 to 74: $2.50 ea.
75 to 150: $2.25 ea.
151 to 199: $2 ea.
200+: $1.75 ea.

50 card minimum.

All orders placed with deposit by Nov. 20 will get a 20% discount!!!

This year I am also offering LETTERPRESSED cards! Please email me for pricing and more information. (They are not eligible for the discount.)

Wedding - Mary Kate Davis

Mary Kate is another bride who wanted a consistent "look" to use throughout her stationery suite and beyond. A logo is great for individualizing your event and putting your stamp on everything from your paper to your accessories such as koozies, napkins, hotel bags, etc. We came up with a quirky emblem and then added one block and one script font that were used everywhere . Mary Kate sent out a save the date that set the mood and introduced her logo to her guests. We used a lavendar on the save the date, which was pulled from Mary Kate's floral color scheme and also added a playful element to her suite.

Her emblem and font scheme carried through to her wedding invitation, seen above (photo by Photography by Jill).

Best Wishes to the happy couple!

Weddings Abound!

A custom wedding logo really personalizes your day! Read more about Alley and Leighton's wedding on Neillie Butler of Mariee Ami's website. (Napkin photo courtesy of Beth Hontzas Photography)

These candy label picks are a fun way to add some pizazz to an already creative idea... A candy bar instead of a groom's cake! (photo by Eric Champman Photograpy and wedding planned by Mariee Ami!)

So, yes, I know that I have been a terrible updater this past year. Besides keeping up with my adorable child, Mrs. Neillie Butler of drum roll - you guessed it! - Mariee Ami has kept me so busy. We have worked on numerous weddings together in 2011, creating everything from placecards, to logos to adorn koozies and napkins to full stationery suites. Follow both of us on Facebook to keep up with our crazy going ons!

Sidenote: I have SO SO SO much other great stuff that I have been working on that I would love to post as soon as my child sleeps through the night or I get un-lazy. We'll see what happens first.

XOXO and thanks for sticking around!

Libby V! I thought you were dead!

I'm not dead...REPEAT, I'm not dead. Just been putting the blog on the back burner for the last YEAR! Since the last thing I posted was William's birth announcement, I think it's only appropriate I post his first birthday invite. It turned out so adorable - done on white 100# linen paper with rounded edges.

My little boy is made of...


Now that all Christmas cards have been signed, sealed and delivered, I thought I would share William's birth announcement with you. I worried over the design of it for months... I designed about ten others before he was born. I figured that someone who specializes in this needed to send something really cute but couldn't really come up with anything. Once he arrived, though, and I learned his adorable little personality, the card designed itself. Even though he doesn't look much like this anymore, the photo captures his spirit perfectly. And if you know me at all you know I am all about some puppy dog tails - so that worked out great, too.

I am looking forward to helping you introduce your little ones to the world in 2011!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas cards!

The 2010 holiday card designs that I have created so far are featured below in 3 different categories - Retro, Whimsical & Classic. Remember that no 2 cards are alike - your card can be customized with your pick of colors, fonts, wording, size/shape and photo placement.
To view a pdf of these designs, or all of the many, many choices I have available, please email me:

This year we are again offering matching gift stickers or tags, notecards, holiday party invites and 4C return address printing for your envelopes. New for this season is notepads, which make a great little gift for teachers, etc.

{Also keep in mind the really affordable Two Lumps of Sugar line which I discussed in a previous post. Ship time is 7-10 business days and I can put in an order at any time. }
