A Modern Fairytale – A Collaboration with The Day’s Design & Heather Cisler Photography

As featured in Artfully Wed and Style Me Pretty!

“In the early morning dew, our story begins. It’s a love story, a sweet tale revolving around fantasy and the belief that we are in control of our own fairytales. As a modern twist, our bride left a simple note for her groom to meet her at dawn by the river where they will pledge their forevers to one another. So there she waits by candlelight for him to arrive. In the spring of the year, the dawn of the day, they make a new start together.

We sought to create a fairytale, an elegantly classic affair that might take place in a ballroom, in an enchanted forest or in Prince Charming’s castle. Our focus was on simple touches that would feel at home in any of these surroundings – timeless elements that never seem to go out of style, satin linens, ivory plates, long flowing veils, a little lace and a touch of sparkle.

There she waits by candlelight in a classic princess ballgown as he arrives with a handful of wild blooms he stopped to pick along the way. After saying “I do” they enjoy a lovely breakfast for two, a sip of champagne and of course, lots of our gorgeous wedding cake. Floral chandeliers and lots of love complete our fantasy bringing every girl’s fairytale to life.” – The Day’s Design

DIY Notepad Tutorial

The talented Analisa Murenin of www.ParentalPerspective.com and a crafty mom/guest blogger on Silhouette created a fun tutorial for a DIY Notepad using my Flower Sketch.

It’s exhilarating to see my designs being used in such creative and original ways. Check out her tutorial here.

Silhouette Poinsettia Flower & Card

One of my lovely Silhouette customers messaged me today to say how much she had fumbled and played around with my Silhouette Poinsettia Flower & Card design to try and cut out the white design.

I can totally see how misleading it is from the picture… it appears that there is a matte included that can be cut for this shape. Sadly, I didn’t design it that way. I intended for it to be placed onto any size/shape of paper that you wish. However, you also deserve a matte to go around it as well! So here it is for you to download for FREE! Please remember, it is for personal use only. 🙂 To insert it into your Silhouette, open the application, go to File, then Import to My Library. It will be added under My Library > My Own Designs.

Where have I been?!?

WOW! I am so humbled by all of my fabulous clients I’ve had in the last month! I’ve had the privilege to design two logos for Righteous Denim and Moments of Grace Photography; create one custom address stamp for a sweet girlfriend of mine; hand letter and calligraph wedding invitations, chalkboards, and appetizer labels for a gorgeous bride; design a sweet sixteen invitation, and manage to sneak in some new designs to my Silhouette Contributing Artist page.

Below is a sneak peak of all my happenings:

Thanks to everyone who made the last two months full of fun projects for me! I’m up for the adventure again!

Going Live!

hello bow

Where have I been the last month? I know… I’ve been a little behind on adding new designs to my Silhouette Online Store. BUT it’s not without just cause! I’ve been busy designing, creating, deleting, designing, deleting, and redesigning my website.

But today, we’re going live!

I think life and beauty is all about the simplistic details. And I had fun creating just those perfect, sweet, little touches for this very project. Have a look around. Or send me a message. But I insist you join me on the journey ahead!
