Hibiscus Breeze!

Here is the final for the Fike Wedding! The bride and groom were looking for more of an airy beach invite with a organic twist. The invite was made of a metallic lagoon pocket fold with the invite and response printed on a pure white linen. The invite and the outer tag were then backed with a handmade leather texture pearl paper. All sealed with a raffia and sent off in a light aqua printed envelope! Congrats Mr. & Mrs. Fike! Can't wait for the big day!

Robert & Karol Damask Suite

(Click on photos to enlarge)

When Robert and Karol approached me to create their one of a kind bridal suite I was sooooo excited. Both the bride and the groom knew exactly what they wanted their invite to look like! After proposed to Karol at the happiest place on earth...Disneyland; the couple wanted a fairy tale inspired invite with a touch of the classic damask on a bright metallic fuschia! The pocketfold is topped off with a smooth 1" satin fuschia ribbon and name plaque! Thank you for letting me bring yet another dream come true to the both of you! Enjoy!

The invite that started it all!

(Click photo to enlarge)

The invite that started it all! When Brian and I finally set a date, I was so excited to start my search for invitations, being the avid scrapbooker that I am I was very particular at everything I looked at! At the end of the day I decided that I wanted to create our invite for our special day! I chose bronze stardream for the pocket, with a linen texture ecru cardstock for the invite and inserts, and for the invitation matting a matte texture cardstock called tuscan sun. The flourish on the pocket and the invite were hand stamped and embossed on 120 invites! Labor of love....but truly my passion! For our wedding theme these were our colors. We had a beautiful fall wedding at dusk, white twinkle lights and the slightest fall breeze!

So for your special day's invites contact, "The Couture Word by Leanne" to help create that one of a kind look you are looking for!

Azure's Bridal Shower and Save The Date

When Azure approached me to help her create her save the dates and bridal shower invites, I was thrilled and honored! Azure actually happens to not only be an excellent client, but the best friend a girl can have!

So now to present her save the date...

Her save the date was created by using a pale yellow 6" circle, small blue crystals, and a large petal envelopment.

As for her bridal shower....that actually is something I am honored to throw her along with her mom and Joyce who is a bridesmaid. The shower invites were printed on stardream quartz and meadow with a hibiscus theme to match her tropical beach wedding in May! Stay tuned for her completed wedding invites!

Completed Invites!!! Here they are!!!

So first to blog is of course the most recent finished....Sorry I'm going to start this blog officially backwards!

When Cassie approached me to create a chic punk rocker invite for her expectant sister's baby shower, I saw fun!!!! So with a little help of the fuschia and black color scheme, and some playful nautical stars, the "Star is born" was created! (Some details have been removed for privacy) :-)

A little hot pink bling tied it all together!

About me!

On October 12th 2008 I married the man of my dreams and my best friend! Throughout the last 5 years I have been an avid crafter, photographer, and most of all scrapbooker. I found that when it came time to make my own invites and "all things paper" I fell in love! After sending out our invites, instant feedback appeared. I have since made two sets of wedding invites. That is where "The Couture Word by Leanne" was born! I look foward to making beautiful invite suites for future brides, future moms, birthday boys and girls, anything!
