I love the crisp look of black and white!  And I was thrilled to see my Belluccia calligraphy font was chosen to add to this couple’s classic look on Snippet & Ink’s blog.

It’s used on the Rehearsal dinner invite ( love the gray stripes in the background), Wedding invitation, RSVP and return envelope, as well as the program and favor bags seen in the last pic below.

Holding it all together is the belly band with just the right simple touch…a lovely capital “C” along with the word “and” between their names set in a text style and the lovely addition of a flourish with just enough lilt.

Jami’s talents made this blue and white invitation suite a classic with a twist of modern.

Nicely done Jami!  Thanks for giving Belluccia a place in your tool box!

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.

I’m pleased to say Bev decided my Belluccia font would be a perfect fit for this royal occasion. The wedding suite was printed on a white ice shimmer stock.

Peacock Blue envelopes with white lettering

I’m in love with the look of these colorful wedding invitation envelopes.  I hand-lettered using my Belluccia style in white ink at an angle with flourishes reaching off the edge of the envelope.  The high contrasting color combo makes the lettering really pop.  The actual color of the envelope is peacock-blue.  My client’s pic made them look more cobalt blue than peacock but the effect is the same.

The happy couple, D.D and Jackie, had the idea to use fun, bright stamps as a creative touch to the design.  I love the fleur-de-lis  printed label that was added to the back flap.  The combination of these vivid colors, hand lettering, and whimsical stamps creates a lively invitation that is sure to impress.

Belluccia font featured on Bird themed Papillon Press Invitation Suite


Papillon Press has done it again.  They’ve blown me away with this gorgeous bird themed letter pressed wedding invitation suite featuring my Belluccia font.  The client wanted a full suite based on specific types of birds, the chickadee and the western tanager. They came through with flying colors.

And how cool is this…they also designed a more fully illustrated piece to be used as an insert for the Starbucks mug that would be handed out as a guest favour.  Oh they are so clever.  Check them out here: http://papillonletterpress.com

The set is printed on Crane Lettra, 300 gsm, pearl white in Cobalt Blue and Yellow Ochre.

Coco Chanel inspired calligraphy for DFW Events and Brides of North Texas Magazine


I was thrilled to be selected as one of the vendors for DFW Events magazine spread in The Brides of North Texas latest issue hitting news stands August 9!

First here’s a peek at the “Inside the Inspiration” video created by BEYOND.

Brides of North Texas /DFW Events CoCo Chanel photo shoot

Now here’s my pics of the pieces while they were still in my studio. ( not as good as professional but they’ll do in a pinch:)

Pink and black invitation and envelope for Coco Chanel shootThe invitation and envelope were designed to work with the striking pink and black theme.  I chose a non-traditional script in all lower case that, like Coco, breaks some of the rules:)  I always love to use an ampersand as a design element. In this case, it’s done in white to add a little more interest to the envelope.

French saying around edge of glass charger plate, "merci" card

I loved the idea of using actual french sayings about love to grace the plates.  In this pic, I used the lettering as a design element on the glass charger.  I also did several small signs that said “merci”.  The one they chose used pink shimmer card stock with black lettering. It was cut down and placed on the Chanel bottle in the video.  They also chose a name card using the same combination that was placed one of the favors-a bar of french soap.

I forgot the actual translation of this particular saying but I remember the thought being that when you love someone, instead of looking in the direction of each other, it’s better if you are both looking in the same direction to the future.  But don’t quote me on that:)

French saying brush lettering on plate

“The price of love is only love”.  A perfect sentiment for a wedding plate.  The lettering is done with a brush and gouache paint.  I’ve actually been meaning to experiment with doing it in permanent paint so it could be given as a gift  and used by the Bride and Groom at their recepetion.  ( And maybe for anniversary dinners !)

I will have to put that on my to do list:)

Table numbers for Coco Chanel shoot

Loved working with beads and wire to put together these table numbers.  A DIY post will follow soon!  The perfect choice for the photo shoot was “No.5” of course!

Je taime hand lettered on black plate in pink

The iconic “Je taime” ( I love you)  and the Eiffel tower were done in both pink on black and black on white, which is what they chose for the photo shoot.  This combination was the perfect fit for this occassion!

Quote by Coco Chanel

Last but not least, is a framed saying by Coco Chanel using my Belluccia calligraphy font!

brush lettered "enchante"

brush lettered "tres bien"

These are two of the plates that didn’t get used.  It’s always fun to see which items get chosen.

Merci Beaucoup! to DFW Events and Brides of North Texas Magazine for allowing me to be a part of this stunning issue !

Have a great saying to be permanently painted on a plate?  Let me know.  When I do my sample, I may end up using your saying and giving you the plate!

My calligraphy font Belluccia of the”Correspondence Ink” type foundry is still  #3 on the Best Sellers list on myfonts.com.   In addition it will soon also be sold on Fontbros.com. I’ll let you know when.

By the way, my next “Intro to Calligraphy” class will be held October 8 from 1-4 pm at Paper Source in North Park Center.  There is limited seating and the class fills up fast.  So get a spot now.  Call Paper Source at 214-696-4400.
