Happy Halloween

Kelly Messacar - Thursday, October 31, 2013

We love Halloween at my house! My husband is even dressing up as someone from Duck Dynasty (?). I will spare you the photo. This year we have a Strawberry and Strawberry Shortcake. I was strawberry shortcake one year for Halloween so I love that she is making a comeback. My costume was not nearly as cute. Evie's favorite part is the hot pink hair. 


Hope the rain will end for us. Happy Trick-or-Treating everyone!



New Programs Fans

Kelly Messacar - Tuesday, October 22, 2013

What a gorgeous wedding! It was fun to step away from popular blues and purples to this happy coral! Gretchen and her planner had so many wonderful ideas and we are thrilled we got to make them happen. We designed a new style of program fan for her ceremony. We now offer 3 different program fans. We hope to have these for sale on Etsy soon!

10 Perfect Chicago Weddings

Kelly Messacar - Sunday, September 09, 2012

We are so excited to see Sarah and Jack's wedding in The Knot Chicago's Fall/Winter 2012 Magazine. We completely agree that is was a perfect Chicago wedding. We were able to work with them on gorgeous double-pocket invitations, programs, place cards, menus, table number cards, match books, napkins, and even the graphics on the bar matched the invitation design. 


Here are the pages from the magazine! 


Welcome Blair Elizabeth!

Kelly Messacar - Sunday, August 26, 2012

I am working hard on Blair's announcement and will post a photo when it's done. She was born August 14th and is as sweet as can be. Here is a photo of Blair and I when she was 2 days old.

Baby Julia

Kelly Messacar - Friday, April 13, 2012

I have been meaning to post this announcement for a while.  I have to say it's my favorite since it's my niece Julia Marie!  She is so sweet I just wish I could see her more often.  Julia's nursery is lavender so we did a lavender announcement wrapped in a fun sparkle paper my sister found.  

Congratulations Kim and Ryan!

A Recent Wedding Review

Kelly Messacar - Thursday, April 05, 2012

"I must say, my "paper products" were one of the few things that I do not have any complaints on... so thank you very much for all your efforts and time.  It all turned out great!  I actually have extra programs that I just cant bare to throw out they look so good!"

-Christine


This was an email we received from one of our brides last month. We were thrilled to hear that she was so happy with all her paper goods that we created for her wedding. Take a look at the pictures to see how we tied all the elements together.
