Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

What I love most about this industry are the people and dynamic nature of the business….we create new, beautiful and meaningful everyday (or at least strive to) and for this I feel grateful to even be a part.  Over the next week I will share my view of the life changing time I experienced at Engage 10 in Grand Cayman; from the striking style and paper goodness to the innovative people and ideas all captured through my eyes and pen. With inspiring paper from Envelopments we created the main session stationery including these oversized placecards.  Jasmine Star grabbed this gorgeous […]

After a rainy weekend and dreary few days to follow, the sun is finally shining here in Northeast PA!  How appropriate since today I am sharing my very sunny collaboration with Good Life Events and Llanes Photography!  Recently Melissa from The Loveliest Day featured this concept shoot on her very lovely blog!

This week it is all about giving a vintage edge to Hawaiian wedding themes.  Now let’s not be afraid of the word theme here (I know, I know it is overused at times).  The word Hawaii, for me, conjures images of soft […]

You may remember a post from a few months ago, letting you know of my plans to collaborate with some favorite local talent on a tablescape shoot I had been visioning for some time.  First let me say that the team was made up of amazing people whose input and vision were integral to the end result of this shoot.  From the beginning I felt it was important to bring everyone together to bounce ideas around and ensure we were all pumped about the design.  On one chilly fall morning last year, that is exactly what we did.  On my […]
