Do Not Bend Printable Labels

A Pretty Alternative to The Post Office's Stamp! 

I put a lot of love into all of my products, and a good chunk of them are heading out to brides for one of the biggest days of their entire life! They cannot arrive bent in half, so marking them with special "DO NOT BEND" instructions lets me sleep a little better at night (well, that and cheap wine). 

One of the perks when ordering from a small creative business is the packaging. We want clients to be (almost) as excited when they see the packaging as they are when they see what's inside! A creative entrepreneur's mantra: It's not done until it's overdone... and tied with a bow. Can I get an amen? But, the dull red "DO NOT BEND" stamp from the post office made me throw up in my mouth a little. Hey Mr. Postman, could you at least upgrade to a great shade of Bethenny Frankel Red? All that hard work and we're supposed to top off our packages like that?! Nope. 

To put an end to the misery (overdramatic??) I designed my own version with a pretty twist. When I posted this photo on my insta I got a lot of DM's from creatives, who also threw up in their mouths every time the postal clerk slapped those three smeared words all over their packaging.

If you are one of those people, gag no more: Click here and I'll send the printable version straight to your inbox, fo' free! 

I send most of my labels off to a professional printer, but these are so easy, I just send some glossy label paper through my inkjet and then slice them apart with a paper trimmer. Peel, stick, repeat! Voilà!

Plum Watercolor Rehearsal Invitation

In another life, I worked with one of the nicest women on Earth.  Her name was Trish and she absolutely lived for her three sons. When she reached out to me nearly 10 years later to create rehearsal invitations for one of her dear sons, I was thrilled.

She wanted to keep them simple, but mentioned liking the watercolor wash that was on the cover of my calligraphy workbook. I created this soft, airy wash and paired it with a modern, yet flourished calligraphy style. I wanted the whole piece to be timeless and simple, as requested. . 

As always, I love the way hand painted invitations print on this rich, subtly textured paper. It perfectly mimics the look of the same watercolor paper my designs are originally painted on. 

Happy Wedding day, Christina and Drew! Wishing this sweet couple many, many years of happiness! ...And lots and lots of babies for Trish to snuggle.
