The two rattles represent the twins  (a boy and a girl) that will be arriving soon:)

The precious rattle invitation is by Stevie Streck Designs. My part was to design, create and address all the boxes.

The rhinestone “B” is for the parents to be’s last name.

Each box was addressed in hand lettering with a “Once upon a time…” banner to reflect the theme.

Adding a touch of “stickles” gave it just enough sparkle.

Personalized tags (in my Dom Loves Mary font and Belluccia font borders) let the guests know that a donation was being made “in honor of our guests and our little ones” to the Genesis Women’s Shelter.

What a lovely gesture by the hostess!

UPDATE

I have received many calls and e-mails from people interested in having me create these invitations for them.

This is an extremely labor intensive project.

Since I am focusing more on font design, I’m not taking on large projects like this.

I’d be happy to instruct you on how to make the decorated boxes yourself, if you are so inclined.

The boxes came from Uline. The material can be purchased at any fabric store.

The ribbon and rhinestone letter came from Hobby Lobby.

Please note, I did not create the invitation.  It was ordered by the client from Beeyond Paper

The double rattle invitation pictured above is no longer available.

The single rattle is available. So you could order both blue and pink and put them together in the box.

Hope this helps!

Still have my nose to the light table creating my new calligraphy font.

I also created a return address for the envelope.

I handed over the digital file to the very capable hands of letterpress printer, Travis Friedrich of ParkLifePress.com.

He printed in a soft gray on a luxurious 100% cotton paper at 6.25″ by 4.5″ wide.

This was the second project I’ve done with Travis and both were perfection! And his pricing is very reasonable.

I hope the Bowmans were as pleased with the result as the gift giver was!

I’m busy at work designing a new font, but in the meantime, you can check out my current two calligraphy fonts here.

Calligraphy Addressing on Envelopes


I was thrilled to once again do calligraphy addressing of these envelopes for my clients darling photo Christmas cards.

The photography and card design are by the very talented Angela Weedon of  Angela Weedon Photography.

The lettering is my “whimsy” style.  It has a simple modern feel.  It will be made into a font eventually:)

I love lettering in white on a color.  It just looks so fresh!

By the way, did you know that you can use my calligraphy fonts to address your own envelopes?  That’s one of the reasons I created them.

To give people who love calligraphy, the ability to use it for their own projects.

I’m still getting back into “work mode” after having a lovely holiday with both of my sons at home and lots of fun visits from friends and family.

One big announcement for the new year…I’m finally opening an Etsy Shop!  I will start selling my fonts there.  We’ll see what else evolves.

I have plans to release at least 2 more fonts this year.  Of course you’ll hear all about it as they progress.

In the meantime, here’s the links to my first two calligraphy fonts.  I’m thrilled that they are both still on the Best Seller’s list!

Wedding Invitation by Loralee Lewis


How beautiful is this wedding invitation suite from Loralee Lewis?  The deep colors and vintage feel pairs wonderfully with my font, Belluccia, giving this set a timeless look.

Peacock Blue Wedding Place Cards


belluccia font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, calligraphy font, wedding invitation, place cardsI previously posted about these gorgeous peacock blue wedding envelopes I had the delight of addressing and now I would love to show you the matching place cards.

belluccia font, cursive font, script font, wedding font, calligraphy font, wedding invitation, place cardsLike the invitation’s envelopes, I hand lettered at an angle in white ink.  I love the look of the flourishes wandering off the edge of the card.

The contrast created by the deep colored paper and white ink is one of my favorites and makes my font, Belluccia, stand out more than in any other combination.

I loved contributing to this beautiful wedding and I hope my place cards add a special touch to the reception.

Congratulations D.D and Jackie!

I love all the different ways Belluccia was used in this collection from Haute Papier, featured on One Kings Lane. The items include: a letterpress wedding invitation,  save the date, RSVP card with return envelope and darling coasters.

The neutral paper and brown ink, use of a single monogram letter and perfectly placed flourishes give the cards a rich, quality feel.

The save the date pairs Belluccia with a handsome block font, creating a sleek, couture look.

And how cute are these whimsical letterpress coasters!  These would add a fun detail to any wedding reception.  My favorite is the Just Married that uses my wedding rings ornament.  Love it!

This collection must have been a quick sell because when I went back to look, the items were no longer on the site.  But go check out Haute Papier for more great designs and I will be sure to keep my eye out for this beautiful set!
