Welcome to my Calligraphy blog! This is a great way for me to share all the exciting projects that come my way as there just is not enough room on my website for all the photos. I'll add new projects on a regular basis so stop by often. Enjoy!
Last month, my cousin, Ashlea got married on the Jersey Shore. We were all quite excited to welcome Colin as a permanent member of our family. It was a beautiful wedding, and I was so thankful to have a small part in it.
LOVE her invite! PERFECT for a beach wedding. We finished off the invites with the Chloe font. Fun and more casual for the Jersey Shore. I loved the way she used the flags as her inner envelope information. This was an adult only wedding and she wanted to communicate exactly who was invited. So, she tied them all up and added the flags. PERFECT!
Ashlea and Colin have traveled a lot together and they used some of their favorite places as table assignments. We used the Chloe font again for the place cards, attached a magnet to the back and they stuck nicely to this metal board covered with a map of the world. How fun is that?
What a great idea! The possibilities are endless! These were actually used as favors at a weekend beach retreat. But they could easily be used for so many different things. Place cards, party/wedding favors, Christmas Ornaments, etc.
To be honest with you, when I first started my business in 2005, I had one lettering style. It was the classic Calligraphy font that you learn in class. For a few years, if anyone asked me to do anything different, I was terrified and referred them to another calligrapher.
In the last few years, I've taken on the challenge and I LOVE IT!!!! My confidence has grown and I LOVE to play and create something new.
This bride is a friend of the family. She loved the style of the Emily lettering - how it's sideways and mixed with block letters. But she wondered if we could get the names to match the lettering on her invite.
I took the challenge!!!!
Love the way it turned out and so did she.
I've named this one "Jessi" in her honor.
Contact me if you have a new lettering style you would like me to try......
