Today, I am featuring the newest addition to my birthday party invitations! It’s a fun and magical Circus Birthday Invitation filled with circus acts like an elephant balancing on a ball, monkey riding a bike, & trapez artists! The stripes & circles add to that authentic circus feel, giving it movement and interest and the brilliant colors define the mood! This project was designed to inspire everyone to throw a circus themed party! This Circus Birthday Invitation is energetic & festive and will definitely get your guests excited for the “big top” party!
I also designed a matching circular address label which can be used as an envelope seal. This element was designed just to show how detailed and festive this invitation set can get. The label features a magician’s hat with rabbit! An iconic graphic that has been used for years to represent magic and the circus industry. A symbolic graphic that many can familiarize with! Like all my other designs, a full matching party set is available! Just let me know what you need! This invitation and all party items are available in any color(s)! The text on the invitation can be customized to fit a wedding, baby shower, or any event!
Premiering, My Lady Dye’s 2011 signature design for Valentine’s Day! This fun, shabby, and chic holiday card was specially designed for Valentine’s Day! Cards are a great way to celebrate & keep in touch with friends, family, and loved ones! Today, many people forget to remember the importance of that old saying, “It’s the thought that counts!” And with a simple holiday card or greeting card, you can put that smile on your best friend’s face. A card is also a true keepsake that many will add to their scrapbooks and photo albums! It’s just not the same when you get a greeting card via email or a personal message on Facebook saying “Happy Valentine’s Day!” It’s nice to be able to keep in touch with others with a simple card, just as our grandparents did years ago!
With that said, I’d like to introduce you to my first holiday card design! There will be many more to come, as for every year, for every holiday, I will design a signature card!
The design is fun and fresh with layers of scrolls and chandeliers! The overlapping graphics give it a vintage feel and the cute floating hearts fill the background! This card is guaranteed to make your loved one smile and make their heart skip a beat!

When a bride falls in love with her whimsical wedding cake, that inspiration may carry into all her other wedding details! This was true for a Bride I had worked with a few months ago. From the start, this bride knew exactly what she wanted and provided me with a photo image of her whimsical wedding cake. She even gave me the CMYK colors and font type that was used on her actual wedding invitations. All these very important and specific details were incorporated into her custom table cards and escort cards. The cake detailing entailed abstract flowers, spiraling vines, and leaflets. Go figure, this wonderful, whimsical, white iced wedding cake, with vibrant orange floral detailing, would win her heart!
With her heart “sold”, she desired to have her stationery details for the reception to reflect this exact look and “feel”. From that one photo, I digitally re-created a close-to-perfect replication of her wedding cake graphics, which was used to create her custom table cards and escort cards. These items were printed on white matte cardstock with graphics in orange and text in dark purple. The spiraling floral graphics artistically entwine to the backside of the escort card as well. The table cards are tented and layered with orange matte cardstock. The vertical, upright form of the escort card is exemplified, as they were elegantly displayed in a formal linear setup making for a very bold statement and great tablescape.Along with the tented table numbers at each table, two separate tent cards were made for other side tables at her reception. These cards were titled “Guest Book” and “Cards”. I loved her modern take to the guest book, which was a large, white, ceramic plate, entirely signed by all her guests. This piece is both decorative and functional I believe! I also loved her modern take to the card box, which was a whimsical and elegant bird cage!

With a fabulous destination wedding in Hawaii, you gotta have FABULOUS wedding invitations! It was true for this lucky Bride! Black, gold, regal, luxurious, and damask, were her exact words! On top of that, she wanted her custom Luxury Wedding Invitation to be a Boxed Invitation! And when a client tells me to just “run with it!”, it’s the greatest feeling in the world! As a Designer, this is “THE” top reason why I love my job! If you need a Custom design, just contact me!
Her custom handcrafted Luxury Wedding Invitation is full of many unique details including vintage medallions, satin ribbon, feathers, decorative vellum, metallic cardstocks, and custom graphics. The black and gold color theme was spiced up with a “pop” of bright fuchsia/bright magenta-purple. This accent color was used as a feather detail which was placed on the outer box with a belly band box wrap. The belly band wrap is a fully customized print that features a graphic pattern and a custom personalized monogram that I designed. This box detail wraps around the entire lid and continues the detail on the inside of the box as well.
Gift boxed invitations are a great way to make an impression! From first glance, to opening the gift box, to then experiencing the cards inside, these are all the events your guests will enjoy with a gift boxed invitation! At first glance, their eyes widen with excitement! Remember, first impressions are last impressions! Then they open the extravagant box to reveal a regal invitation that has a vintage medallion that says “WOW”! Then they will untie the other cards and enjoy the entire set as each piece sparkles in gold metallic! A simple black matte box transformed into an extravagant gift boxed invitation!
This custom order was very unique, as each invite set featured a different medallion embellishment! All the great medallions reflected the same great look with all the black and gold details seen in each. The medallion as the focal point of the invitation card, was followed with a regal script font and custom damask graphics in black. The invitation card is detailed with many layers. The print is layered with a decorative vellum, gold metallic cardstock, and backed with thick black matte board. The custom damask graphics are used through out the set on all the enclosure cards, which included an RSVP card, directions card, and a post-celebration card.
The enclosure cards are elegantly tied to the lid of the box with a black satin ribbon. All cards are printed on gold metallic cardstock. With a fabulous destination wedding, it’s a “must” to have a directions card. Having knowledge of the exact driving route to each of the wedding events, will help your guests feel more relaxed.
Each gift boxed invitation set will have to be gift wrapped and postage will need to be placed. This is another fun detail that you get to play with once you receive your invites and get them ready to mail out. You can use whatever fun gift wrap you want. For this set, I show a sample of the final packaged invite wrapped in gold metallic wrapping paper. All gift boxed invitations come with a matching custom mailing label. For this set, the label is printed on gold metallic cardstock. This detail is attached with double-sided tape and placed on the box after its wrapped. A matching typical sized address label is also designed and provided for the RSVP envelopes!
Recently contacted by Cindy Soto, the owner of My Dream Sample Box and My Dream Party, I was introduced with a proposal to become a sponsor for her new business, My Dream Sample Box. She has 11 years of experience in the Party/Event Planning business and has recently decided to branch out and share her “findings” and “sponsors” to other industry professionals, such as event planners, party planners, and wedding planners, as well as all those who just love to throw a great party or festivity, like your mom! With this new concept she started her new business, My Dream Sample Box. It’s a great concept that totally makes sense and is a great opportunity for all who are involved! All her sponsors create samples on a monthly basis, each month with a different theme. We ship them to her and then she packages them all into a “My Dream Sample Box” and ships them to all those who ordered one! It goes on sale the 1st of every month and anyone can buy one! It’s fun for both the sponsor as well as the buyer! It’s like getting a box full of surprise gifts! You never know what you’re gonna get and they’re all great samples! My Dream Sample Box is filled with handmade items such as candles, bath, tarts, gourmet food, candy, jewelry, stationery, party favors, and so much more!
I’m very excited to be a part of this great concept and business! I hope everyone buys a My Dream Sample Box, so they can experience and share all the great samples! You can guarantee you’ll love the My Lady Dye samples! This month I am featuring a Winter Wonderland themed favor bag!

Whether you’re having a small or large wedding reception, a guest seating chart is always a great way to add some spice to your reception decor! Items like this look great when they are a larger print. Sized 24″ x 36″ is a great size and the larger the better! You can get them printed 30″ x 42″ too! If you prefer a little smaller, then I recommend 18″ x 24″. Seating charts can be mounted on thick light weight foam board (white or black) OR they can be placed into a simple poster frame or an extravagant gilded and embellished picture frame. Usually placed at the entry way of the reception area or dining area, these fun and colorful seating charts are bound to catch the eyes of all your guests! These functional pieces of art serve as directional and informational signage. They make it easy for your guests to find their seats and tables. Nothing is worst than having a bunch of people wondering around the reception area, trying to glance at each place card to find their names! You can also have the dinner menu placed on the seating chart as well. This information is usually centered on the chart.
I definitely recommend getting a good designer, like moi :), to custom design your seating chart to match your wedding theme! Whether it’s a damask, a vintage modern, a medieval, a beach theme, or other, just message me and we’ll work together to get the perfect design! Custom designs are my favorite and are always fun for my clients as well! Below are some of my creative seating chart designs! Feel free to comment and let me know your thoughts!

Today, I’m featuring another great birthday party project that I designed and created for a little girl’s 3rd “PINK” birthday party! Payton’s theme was based on her love of the letter “P” and all words starting with “P”. So it was inevitable that Mom and I decided to add “POP” to all the items with “P” detailing! With a fun and fresh color theme of PINK and hints of “POPPY” orange, this birthday set was truly bound to make a bold statement!
The Payton Party set includes custom cup cake toppers, mounted candy shoppe sign, candy tag labels, popcorn cups with stickers, paper mobiles, and favor tags.
Mom sent these great photos of her candy shoppe setup! Love all her candy choices and edibles, from the pink colored popcorn and pink chocolate covered pretzels, to the pink icings on the cookies and cupcakes!
