I’ve been working hard behind the scenes on rebranding and generally refreshing my website. It is fair to say it is taking a little longer than I hoped, designing for yourself can be a nightmare and you can end up not making any decisions at all!
However…lots of new designs are being developed and finalised, custom collections are gathering and generally lots of pretty paper has waited long enough.
So just to satisfy my urge to share some new stuff, here’s a peak at one of my new designs ‘Pencil Us In’ a save the date card complete with personalised, hand foiled pencil.
Along with a handful of other pieces, they have been waiting patiently for me to get a move on and officially launch them on my website. It won’t be long now… promise. So send your guests something different with these fun save the dates. They are useful, eco friendly and who doesn’t love a pencil!
These save the dates are printed on our special, 250gsm board which is made from around 60% recycled beer labels. This yummy board is off white in colour with tiny brown flecks highlighting the lovely eco friendly qualities. The design features fun wording with original illustrations and typography. Nice.

Wedding Photographer, Jo Bradbury has been busy the last few months organising an Art Deco inspired shoot at The Midland, Morecambe. It happened last week with an amazing team of suppliers and I was lucky enough to be asked to provide the stationery. The full shoot will be available really soon (I’m just heading off on my jolly’s so you will probably see it before me!) so I wanted to share a little peak featuring my gold foiled, laser cut and hand covered, glitter table number. I can’t wait to see the shoot in full, it promises to inspire all you lovely, Art Deco Brides and Grooms!
Sonia came to me last year with such a lovely idea for her and Chris’s invites I couldn’t wait to get started and these invites have now become a firm favourite of mine.
Sonia wanted the invites to reflect the couples cultures and for the stationery to incorporate two Indian elephants, Chris’s elephant with a colourful tartan print and Sonia’s inspired by the paintings from the Indian Elephant Festival. As they were having Indian and Scottish celebrations three separate invites were needed and so Sonia wanted these to be defined with foil edging, gold for the Indian invites and silver for the Scottish invites. To really let the edging sing we duplexed the card to double the weight to 700gsm creating a deeper edge to really show off the shine! Both sets also came with RSVP postcards and information cards. The envelope flaps were letterpress printed in black with the couples elephant motifs.
I loved the whole idea for these invites and the thought Sonia put into them and the use of multiple process and finishes makes these invites extra special. Plus I love elephants so I was always going to love doing these!

At the end of last year I was asked to help a groom who wanted to incorporate the couples favourite music into the day stationery. He had a list of the bands and wanted vinyl records to be featured. I designed new record label stickers for each table and fixed to both sides of old 7 inch records and they looked great…see!
I also designed a matching table plan that I will be sharing soon.
Sweetie bars have become really popular for weddings and I love an excuse to create pretty little tags and stickers!
Adding labels is a fun way to show your guests all the different threats and flavours you have while incorporating your theme and adding that personal touch. The labels here are one of my favourites and are perfect for hanging on sweetie jars. They are printed on thick card and available in a range of colours.
Place cards, name tags, escort cards or what about a bookmark?!
Instead of the regular tent fold place cards go for a bookmark style. They are large enough for a personal message and can double up as favour tags too.
These bookmark place settings have been digitally printed to coordinate with the vintage floral postcard designs.
Sometimes I just tweak an existing design and it suddenly looks brand new!
Sabrina really liked the Rosalind style but wanted to personalise the design and incorporate her other half’s love of fishing. The couple designed their own save the dates and had used a font that they wanted to carry through to the invitations which refreshed the Rosalind invite beautifully. Together with the little fish illustration we transformed the original design into something that reflected Sabrina and Alex’s style, just as your wedding stationery should!
Invitations were letterpress printed in black ink.
I just had to share these pretty little stickers. Kirsty, the bride to be has made a ton of raspberry jam and giving jars as favours to all her guests so we made some cute little stickers to match her invites. What a lovely little touch.
I designed on some favour stickers and tags recently so I thought I’d share a couple with you…
…complete with the couples personalised silhouettes and initials.
These favour tags would also be cute as an alternative place card option.
I hope you like them!
