Better Late Than Never – Christmas Cards

Hi everyone, I know it’s a little late but my holiday season was so jam-packed I never got a chance to show you some of the Holiday Cards I made for Holiday Boutique! My favorite is the one with the confetti! As if getting snail mail wasn’t exciting enough if you add confetti it makes it even better! It’s super festive and fun!

Merry Christmas (late) + Happy New Year!

Flying High On LOVE + A little Valentines day Inspiration!

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching which means LOVE is in the air!

I’ve been loving what a balloon can add to an event, it can add character and a whimsy feeling to any occasion. I’m a sucker for a good pastel palette or something a little more chic like black, gold, and cream it just depends on your soiree. I can already imagine a wall of white balloons with the word L-O-V-E spelled out in huge gold mylar letters at your wedding! The ideas are never ending when it comes to these simple pieces of decor. Be inspired!

You can purchase the large balloons with tassels from BHLDN or Cloud Parade.

The Lightfoot Family is Growing by Two Feet!

I am SO excited to introduce one of my favorite couples ever! We first met Sean + Nicole back in 2010, a couple happily in love and ready to plan their dream wedding. Ashley & I were lucky enough to be asked to create their wedding invites, guest book cover, gift bag tags and a few other items. From then on they were S heart N in our book!

So you wouldn’t have to guess how thrilled I was when I received an e-mail from them letting me know they were expecting and ready for some baby announcements/Christmas cards! As a designer that is one of the things that gives you validation and reminds you why you’re doing this. So Nicole and myself went straight to work and did a little brain storming before coming up with the card below. As you can see the “heart” stamp recurs throughout their wedding invites to their baby announcements!

I WANT A HIPPOPOTAMUS FOR CHRISTMAS

I love the song “I want A Hippopotamus For Christmas” by Gayla Peevey, Christmas doesn’t feel like Christmas with out it. So I thought it would be kinda fun to come up with a card incorporating my favorite part when Gayla sings about her “Hippo Hero Standing There” when she wakes up on Christmas morning.

I think it’s so funny, here’s a video of Gayla on the Ed Sullivan show singing the song when she was 10.

Hello! I know it’s been a while but I have to share this awesome shoot with you guys! A few of my favorite things are incorporated here like the neat invites, colorful flowers, doughnuts, scrabble and coffee! What inspired me to create these invitations and musical details was the color scheme, the bride and groom and the wonderful people who put this shoot together! For the INVITES I used some Burch wood and paper bag paper then scoured my files for the perfect font and did the same for the SAVE THE DATES and to top it all off I bound up all the pieces with some white rope, that way when your wedding guest receives the package it will be like they are receiving a gift and remember it. As for the other details, a while back Ashley and I were doing our routine estate sale searching and found a house that had tons and tons of vintage music books for sale so we stocked up and I thought this would be the perfect time to re-use some paper! TYPOLOGIE likes to be as green as possible so if we don’t have to waste any resource especially paper we try and do that. I then proceeded to find a great font and pick the perfect pigment and thus created some of the details below like the SEATING SIGN and COFFEE/FAVOR TAGS that doubled as a PLACE MARKER. The other details are seriously amazing, the models, the flowers and the decor are super inspiring, check out these amazing people below!

Have a great day and be inspired!

Love,

Amber

Still celebrating love….

Happy Post-Valentines Day! :) Hope everyone had a wonderfully sweet Valentines Day!! Ashley here, and yes, we are still in the Valentines spirit over here at the TYPOLOGIE camp!! I’m not ready for it to end, so I thought I would share a photo of the little valentine I made for my sweet husband. I made the envelope out of a vintage piece of sheet music {since music is his other love ;)}, and created a hand-drawn message for an extra personal touch {the inside reads “us”}…. so glad he liked it. :)

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!

With love,

A&A
