Here’s a sneak peak at some of those new designs for handmade wedding invitations that I mentioned in my last post.  There’s more to come – I’m just so full of inspiration at the moment!

If you want to see more detail on these designs click here to be taken to my new handmade invitations website.  Please note that this link is to the test site – I will be posting the address once the site has finished testing.

It’s Competition Time!

16 Jul

To brighten a cold, rainy and stormy week, that suddenly got even worse today (but more about that on my Just Jane VA blog) I have decided to start a competition for my readers!

The competition will run until the 10th of September 2010 and the winner will be chosen at random from the correct answers.  The prize will be a choice for the winner of one of the following:

  • a free party package – includes 15 C6 invitations (personalised, with magnets) and 15 lolly/favour tags – Value AUD 25.oo
  • A gift voucher to the value of AUD 25.00 to spend on the item/s of your choice (only valid for Just Jane products & services)

Below you will find photographs of 4 handmade wedding invitation designs.  These are real samples made for a real couple (all the names, dates and venues are made up for the samples).  All you have to do is choose the design the couple decided on – Romantique, Criss-cross, Leaf design or Dark Green!

Stylish Stripes Options

14 Jun

Classic Stripes Colour/Button Options

Following on from last week’s Stylish Black & White invitation I thought it might be a good idea to show how designs can be altered to suit the client’s colour requirements and also the occasion.

Taking the Stylish Black & White invitation I have changed the base colour from black to a variety of other shades.  I have also changed the silhouette in the button which can change the whole feel of the invitation.  For example a bride and groom in the button makes it suitable for a wedding or engagement. 

So once again I would like to remind you that all my designs are adaptable.  If you like the feel of one of them but think it isn’t quite right for your event, call me or e-mail me and we’ll work out an adaptation.

Take care all!

Black & White Stripes

This week I have been working on a design for grown ups. 

I’ve been working with black and white – prompted by a challenge on a forum I participate in.  The design you see here would work really well for a cocktail party or perhaps an ‘Ebony & Ivory’ ball!  I love black and white because it always looks so sophisticated.

The straight lines on this invitation give it a sleek and elegant look perfect for that extra special grown up occasion.  I’ve also designed a name tag which could be used for labeling party favours or could be tarted up with a black ribbon or rope and tied to the wine glass of the guest as a place name.  A variation of the black stripe & picture could be used as a napkin holder and the design could also be developed to include a menu or even a cocktail list.  The options are endless!

I’m also working on some other black and white styles so keep checking back for more!

Enjoy your party planning!
