White Christmas….Wintry Invitations

Well the big holiday is still a few days away, and while it looks like we’ll have a white Christmas here in Chicago, not everyone will be so lucky. If you don’t get to enjoy the white fluffy stuff in your neck of the woods, maybe these wintry wedding invitations can get you in that yuletide mood.

First wedding show of 2011!

Ah, winter. Your arrival is marked by sometimes beautiful (mostly gray and muddy) snow, an onslaught of Etsy shops we like to promote to you on our Facebook page for your holiday shopping (it’s fun because it’s like shopping without spending any money!) and our participation in a wedding show or two!

This year, the first will be the “Love at Breathtaking Heights” show in the Sears Tower (ok, ok! Willis Tower) at the Metropolitan Club on January 7th starting at 5:30pm. This is a tre chic show, so put your fancy pants on for this one:

We will be there with our friend Nina from Tweedle Press to debut our hybrid flat printed/letterpress printed style we’ve been cooking up. It’ll be worth the visit!
See you there!

Invitations Inspire Crafty Presents

It’s always nice to hear from our clients that their family and friends loved the invitations we did for them, but sometimes we’re blown away by how much they seem to like them. Take Mary Ann and Darel’s wedding for example. They had friends actually make them gifts out of our invitations!

First, the invitation that inspired the gifts…..

Here is a custom cake topper their friend Ty made for them….

And here are a couple of photos of a vase made from the invitation and their engagement picture….
