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.

In the meantime you can check out my current two calligraphy fonts Belluccia and Dom Loves Mary  here.

These are being put together from a multitude of hand created flourishes designed to add a special touch to wedding invitations.  I have to say, I am really liking how they look. I’ll show you a preview soon!

DIY Personalized Pumpkin


DIY Halloween pumpkin,Halloween decor, decorated pumkin, personalized Halloween pumkinHere’s an quick idea for a DIY personalized pumpkin.  All the supplies are available at any craft store.

DIY Halloween pumpkin,Halloween decor, decorated pumkin, personalized Halloween pumkin

You’ll need: A pumpkin, a glue gun, 3 different sized ribbons, ( it helps if the largest ribbon is wired) fake spider web, fake spiders, black gloss acrylic paint and brush ( an inexpensive option is the Loew-Cornell Soft Comfort #14360 Liner in Size 1 or larger)  or a sharpie marker.

1. The first step is to put the initial on the pumpkin.  This can be done with the gloss acrylic paint and brush or the sharpie marker.  It helps to first draw the letter on the pumpkin with a pencil.  The line will be very light but it will help guide you.

If you are using a sharpie marker, you’ll need to fill in the areas where you have the thickest strokes.  Depending on what brush you use you may also need to add more width to parts of the letters that need it ( usually the  “down” strokes are the weighted strokes).

2. Next you’re going to attached the ribbons, starting with the widest wired one at the bottom.  The length of ribbon will depend on the size of the pumpkin, but it’s always best to make it longer as it’s easy to cut it if needed. I’d start with a minimum of 12″ for a small pumpkin.

Simply tie in a knot around the pumpkin staff. Don’t tie in a bow. Bend the wired ribbon so that it moves in a wave extending out from the pumpkin.  This will help hold your spider web in place.

3. Add additional ribbons in thinner widths. As you tie each ribbon around the pumpkin staff, adhere it to the one below with a glue gun so they all stay in place. Then make a bow. As you go to glue the last ribbon, make sure to turn it so that when you make a bow, it doesn’t rest exactly on top of the other bow, but fits nicely beside it.

4. Now it’s time to add the spider webbing.  Cut a piece and place it over the pumpkin staff.  Stretch it so it covers and sticks to the wired ribbon.  You can play around with it a bit perhaps sticking it through the holes of the bows.

5. Glue the spider to the middles of all the bows.  You can also add a few more spiders to other parts of the web.  Attach with a small dab of  the glue gun so they stay in place.

In addition to decor for your home, this would be a good craft for kids ( younger ones may need you to make the letter) or a great hostess gift if you’re going to a Halloween party !

Happy Pumpkin making!

Halloween Invitation and Party Game


Halloween invitation, Halloween cookies, toy wooden coffin, spooky hand lettering, calligraphy

This Halloween invitation and party game were so much fun to create!  First here’s the details about the invites.

They were made for my client’s daughter’s Halloween themed birthday bash. It would also make a great party favor.

Halloween invitation, Halloween cookies, toy wooden coffin, spooky hand lettering, calligraphy

The darling and delicious mummy cookies were made by “It’s a Mary Cake”.  You could also fill the coffin with Halloween candy.

Here’s some basic DIY instructions.

The wooden coffin’s came from Michael’s craft store.  They were painted black.  The message was lettered in white on black card stock cut in the shape of the coffin lid and attached.

You could do this with a white chalk or paint marker or white pen.

Halloween invitations, Halloween calligraphy, hand lettering, mummy invitations, calligraphy on invitations

They were mailed in “mummified” boxes ( I painted the look of fabric strips in gray.)  with addresses hand lettered in orange paint. Again, orange and gray markers could be used.

The coffin was placed inside a white mailing box where an orange card with party details was attached.

When the box was opened it revealed a “web” with spiders guarding the coffin:) Any craft store has theme items.

More spiders and a fake eyeball were hidden in the paper shredding.  Other items could include plastic worms and bugs!

Hope you like this fun invitation idea.

Now for the game….

A Mummy Scavenger Hunt Party Game:

1. Divide the party guests into teams.

2. Each team will create a “mummy.”  They can trace one of their bodies on a large piece of white roll paper.  Or you could opt to have them draw the outline of a mummy on a piece of poster board.

3. One or two guests  are designated as the mummy reviver.  The others go out on the scavenger hunt looking for their mummy’s parts. ( Just hidden in your yard will work.)

All of the mummy parts can be placed in plastic bags with a piece of colored paper inside. The teams would retrieve only the color assigned to their mummy.

The items can include body parts like eyes, heart, fingers, liver, etc… whatever can be found cheaply at places like the dollar store or printed from clip art and cut out of card stock.

4. Each time an item on the scavenger list is retrieved, the team receives a piece of white crepe paper to dress their mummy with. The mummy revivers re-attach the body parts along with the white crepe paper.  ( Double stick tape should work.)

5. As the teams complete their mummy they are awarded prizes for first, second, third…place.

Simple prizes could include inexpensive items like:  hanging spiders, red wax lips, fake dracula teeth,etc…or just bags of Halloween candy.

Let me know if you try this game and how it worked out.

Hope this gets you in the Halloween spirit!

Cinderella themed wedding invitation


You never know what theme a bride might have in mind for her big day.  This client of Beverly Verbeke, designer extraordinaire, was feeling the princess vibe and appropriately requested a “Cinderella” theme. I’m talking the real “theme park” kind, charming prince and all.

Coco Chanel Wedding with Belluccia


I’m completely enamored with this Coco Chanel and floral ombre themed wedding from The Event Essentials.

Colorful flowers and delectable ruffle cakes contrast beautifully with the vintage style.

I am particularly in love with all the amazing wedding signage using my cursive font, Belluccia. Check out these great pics!Belluccia font, Calligraphy font, Coco Chanel themed  invitation, black and white invitation, wedding font, cursive font, fancy font, script font

I love the crisp black and white invitation!  The satin ribbon and rhinestone pin add a nice touch.  Love the way they created the date with my numbers and flourishes.  And I’m not quite sure what the grey metallic backing is made of but isn’t it cool looking?

These adorable perfume bottle inspired place cards are a whimsical addition. I love how Belluccia was used for the word “Mr. or Mrs.” It’s a perfect pairing with the simpler block font.  The white Parisian inspired dresser is the perfect display piece for them.

When they asked me to do the lettering for the lace covered menus and terra cotta pot place cards, I was curious to see what they would do with them.  They did not dissappoint!

Here’s how they looked in my studio.
