Inspire Me: Florissimo

I am starting a new feature called Inspire Me where I share my inspiration behind specific designs. I am starting things off with one of my favorite wedding invitation designs, Florissimo. I was inspired by this beautiful photo of yellow wildflowers.  In this particular photo I just love the play between the bold color and the delicate stems.  Check out the rest of Ashley & Grant's wedding too... it is absolutely stunning!

update: big cartel + more

So I decided to sign on for a Big Cartel site this year, hopefully in time for the holidays rush. It's been really fun and a bit challenging setting it up.  Their structure is a little different than my current website so I'm learning as I go.  It's going to look a lot like my current site but hopefully more functional and user-friendly on the retail side.  Anyway, I can't wait to show the finished result!

In addition to the new site I will have some yummy new holiday photo card designs debuting when the Big Cartel site launches. So stay tuned!

And in related news, I have been working with an amazing photographer, Amy Leigh. With her help I've been updating my photo card designs with new images.  She does really beautiful work so if you're in the Nashville area definitely check her out!  Here's a sample of her lovely work...
