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.

Calligraphy Fonts by Laura Worthington


I am a HUGE fan of Laura Worthington.  She’s a fabulous human being, as well as a top notch designer of beautiful calligraphy fonts.

As a gifted lettering artist and graphic designer she found her calling when she began designing type.

Her large selection of fonts can be found on Best Sellers lists all over the web and a large number have earned the honor of Rising Star and the Most Popular fonts annual list.

She has also had the honor of being interviewed as one of Myfonts “Creative Characters.” I can only dream:)

Feast your eyes on just a handful of her cursive fonts starting with “Funkydori”.

“Funkydori” was selected as one of the Most Popular fonts of 2012 on Myfonts.com.

I love the overall weight of it and the thick swashes that add plenty of “funk”.  It’s cool without trying to be.

I just can’t get enough of her work.  And there’s so much more to see!

Check out all of her fonts here.

Because of Laura’s encouragement, I felt confident enough to begin the process of creating my own fonts.

I have two so far, Belluccia and Dom Loves Mary and am working on my next one. I LOVE designing my very own alphabets and hope to release several more this year.

I owe her a debt of gratitude for inspiring me to keep moving forward on this exciting journey.

She’s who I wanna be when I grow up:)

DIY Chalkboard Signs with Calligraphy Font


I’m so excited to show you a really get way to make the very popular chalkboard signs that are showing up on all the wedding blogs.  I am working with a Mother of the Bride, Deni, who is busily creating items for her daughter Caroline’s July 3 wedding in Virginia.  She is using my new calligraphy font, Bellucia, that will be available on myfonts.com soon.

One of the items she wanted to create were chalkboard signs to be used for a variety of things including a “happy tears” basket with handkerchiefs.  As more are completed I’ll post about them but for now, here’s a little “how to” for this one.

"Happy Tears" DIY Chalkboard Sign

First, I found this great chalkboard roll with an adhesive back at Michael’s .  Chalkboard paint could also be used but I think the paper allows for a smoother surface.  They also have chalkboard markers there.  They are easier to work with than chalk and look whiter.  They also wash off if you make a mistake.  I suggested she purchase hanging signs on sale at stores like Ross, Marshall’s and Tuesday Morning.  She even found some at Goodwill.  It doesn’t matter what’s on them because you’re going to be covering over it anyway.

Collection of wooden and magnetic signs

Next, she traced the sign onto the back of the chalkboard paper , cut out the shape and adhered it to the sign. She used the chalk marker to create a simple border all around the edge.

To create the calligraphy lettering style, she typed the wording in my Bellucia font, printed it off her computer and enlarged it to fit the sign.  Then she used white transfer paper, also available at craft stores, to trace the lettering onto the chalkboard surface.  Next she marked over the lettering with the chalk marker.  The simpler block lettering at the bottom was done freehand.  We are still experimenting and may need to spray these with a fixative so the chalk marker doesn’t rub off.  We’ll keep you posted on that.
I’m so proud of what a great job she did!  More signs and other wedding items created by Deni using my new font to be posted soon!
