Love Lara

Last month I had a blast redesigning the branding and packaging for Love Lara, a local business selling handmade natural soap. This type of job doesn't come around often so I was super excited to add my touch to the project. I ended up making pillow case boxes for the soap with each flavour being distinguished by colour and an illustration. 


Thank you tag printable

In the midst of wedding madness one can easily forget a small but important aspect to the day, so I have made one less thing to worry about in the form of thank you tags. Simply head over to The Pretty Blog and download the A4 printable to serve as either an accessory to your guest’s gifts on your wedding day, or save them for later to add to your thank you gifts or cards.

A big thanks to Shannon Bradfield for the photo.


Kid's Themed Custom Invite

For this Pretty Blog DIY I have created a "Double-Duty" invitation that can be used either for your child's birthday party or a baby shower. I've also thrown in a few extras that you can use as cake toppers or name tags, all in a pastel hot air balloon theme - tell me someone who doesn't love hot air balloons. All you need to do is head over to The Pretty Blog, download the files, print, cut and customise. A big thanks to Shannon Bradfield who took the lovely pictures. Have a lovely day!


If you're ever looking for a videographer..

I just watched Andrew and Lindsay's wedding video done by the talented Nick Waring. He is no stranger to my community as he did my sister's and best friend's wedding too :) I'm sure he laughs a little whenever he sees us at yet another wedding. (We just keep recommending him to anyone we know getting married)

So if you are looking, here are three videos to show you what you could be in for:


Recent work

I have been busy with some fun projects in the past few weeks and thought I would share them with you. The first is the save the date for a lovely PE couple - I will be getting stuck into the rest of their stationery set soon!


And this is a christening invite I did which had a whimsical pastel balloon theme, in case you didn't notice:)


Wedding - Andrew & Lindsay

Andrew and Lindsay got married at La Colline in Port Elizabeth on the 22 June and it was one beautiful wedding. It was natural and rustic with no strict colour palette and I wanted the design to reflect that. One of my favourite aspects was making the covers for the CD's that were given to each guest containing the songs from the wedding.


Birthday Scratch Card DIY

I am forever making hand made vouchers for birthdays, mother's/father's days etc. as a fun way of personalising a gift, so I thought a scratch card version would be a great DIY project. You can get the free printables and the super easy instructions over at The Pretty Blog. Have fun!


The Garden Set

I don't know who Samuel and Rachel are, but they inspired a new template design! Just like the last post these templates can be customised for your specific event so email me for a quote.
Have a lovely day!


Nic & Jean's Wedding Invites

I thought it was time I showed you what I've been busy with in the last while, so for now here are the invites for Nicholas & Jean's upcoming wedding. They opted for a more traditional design with a quirky colour scheme to liven things up.


Easter Printables

I was super excited when the lovely people at The Pretty Blog asked if I would do a guest post for their DIY section, and I'm more than happy to finally share it with you. It's Easter themed so for those of you who love picnics and egg hunts go download your free printables here.


The Rose Set

So since I've shared custom work only so far, I'd like to introduce the template collection. How it works is you pick a design you like and then together we customise it for your specific event by changing the colour scheme and information. Sound good? Here is the first set. It's clean, simple and elegant and it can be yours so email me for a quote, and keep a look out for more additions by clicking the templates label on the left :)


Valentines Day card printables

The day of love is approaching so what better way for me to show you some love than with free printable cards! Yay!
All you have to do is click the links at the end of this post, download the file, cut out, fold and share with your special someone. There are three to choose from so take your pick.

Download the printables here:

(Get creative and fill in the gaps eg. I love you more than a fat kid loves cake:)


Wedding - Hannah & Shane

I had so much fun with this wedding. Hannah and Shane were a very relaxed couple with lighthearted personalities and I think that came through. My favourite elements from this set were the different patterns for the invites, the reception book and the delightful honey jars that they gave to their guests. You can see the wedding pictures by Judith Doubell here.
