Bridal Shower Invites with Hydrangeas & Calla Lillies…you really can’t go wrong.

Hi there… thought I would leave you with this for the weekend. I was asked by a friend to design an invite for a bridal shower they were throwing. She told me the bride to be’s colors were navy & copper, flowers were Calla Lilies & Blue Hydrangeas. Oh… how that got my mind spinning! I love both those flowers & was excited to see what I could find to bring in the copper… I was able to take a photo of each flower, stylize them & create a beautiful bouquet to use as the main design element for the invite. And oh my goodness… I found the coolest copper envelopes ever! Check out the end result below.

You know… custom invites & announcements {whether for a wedding or baby} might be a little more expensive than the bulk pack you can get at walmart… but do you know the joy of getting such a piece of art in the mail. I get so excited when I receive a hand-written note, letter or a beautiful custom baby announcement or wedding invite — it makes me feel special… that they would take the time & effort to put something like that together or pay someone else to do it. A lot of times people cherish these pieces and don’t just throw them away. They keep them to remember that special occasion, some might even frame such a thing of beauty.

Anyway… I will stop rambling & let you enjoy the pics below. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend! — Britta

Custom Christmas Cards

So, we’re back-tracking a bit… but just wanted to share this fun project I did before Christmas. I had the fun time of designing a Christmas card for the McKee family. It is a flat Christmas card designed to fit in a beautiful Red #10 envelope that opens from the top. It is a simple yet fun design not taking the focus away from the pic but maybe actually complementing it… what a concept. 🙂 The photography is by the one and only vagabond photography, it is always fun to work with Amanda. It makes my job as a designer so much easier and more fun when I have amazing pics to work with.

Tina wrote…”We had an abundance of compliments on the cards. Everyone loved them, they thought they were just a little different than everyone elses.” {note from the designer: I love that they were just a little different than everyone elses, sounds like maybe they stood out from the crowd a bit. :)}

It is never too early to start thinking about your custom Christmas {baby, anniversary, save the date, wedding, you name it} cards. If you are interested in custom stationary I would love to hear from you… design@brittaburrus.com or (509) 429.1989

Thanks for stopping by and taking a step back to 2009 with me! Have a great weekend!

Beach baby! announcements.

This is the third set of baby announcements in Bbs ‘everything happens in 3’s’. What a fun run it has been… so the parents wanted something surfer/beach but not overboard to announce their bouncing baby boy’s arrival. Check out Jack’s announcements below and see what we came up with. Congrats to Brent, Becky, Leah & Ella on your new arrival and thanks for thinking of Bb for your baby announcements!

These are designed as #10 flat announcements with coordinating envelopes. I also designed matching labels and Thank yous to go with the announcement.

Thanks for stopping by and if you (or someone you know) need to announce the arrival of your new bundle of joy feel free to call (509) 429.1989 or email to get started.
