Jenn is getting married at an old Spanish style mansion and wanted her invitation to have a Spanish feel. I LOVE these colors and the Spanish tile design we created for her. Jenn is carrying through the Spanish tile idea throughout the entire wedding, so it’s a perfect fit. It just makes me feel like eating tapas and drinking a glass of sangria. Jenn got the invites over the weekend and sent me this wonderful note.
The box of invites arrived today! Thank you again for shipping them to us.
They are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! (and they were even packaged so cute too!!) I can not wait to send them out!
You have just been outstanding to work with – and I really can not wait to work with you again! I truly appreciate you and your work.
THANK YOU thank you thank you thank you!!!!

I am back from the Stationery Show…and have been trying to catch up all week! :) The show was very cool and very overwhelming, but I found some great new handmade papers and one of my suppliers has added an embossed pocket to their line…very cool!
Onto the fun stuff…we just finished these invites for Raven. Her colors are chocolate and terracotta and she wanted a modern look to her pocket. Enjoy the pics!!!

So, I’m off to the National Stationery Show in New York City. Handmade by Allison will be closed Sunday, May 18th and Monday, May 19th. I’ll be back in the studio on Tuesday morning. I’m hoping to come back with new ideas, some fun new supplies and lots of stories!

I wanted to share a great note of thanks that I received from Shirelle today. I’m also including pictures of her invitation below too.
I think Jake & I spoke with half of our invited guests last night. The reason………..they all LOVED the invitations! They all shared how beautiful and different they were! I just wanted to pass along our thanks again for a job well done with thoughtful and delicate attention to detail. Can’t wait to see the table numbers you can create in July!
Have a great weekend,
Shirelle & Jake”

For all of the brides looking for an invite that isn’t a pocket or folder, I have the invite for you. Lauren came to me with this idea…a heavy white card with a delicate dot border, wrapped with a beautiful swirled paper and tied with a black, grosgrain ribbon bow. We called it the “bow” invite originally, but now that we are shipping these out to her today…it’s a wrap!
