With a new baby around, I decided I would skip out on 2013 holiday work. But, there’s so much happening behind the scenes at Hello Tenfold, even as the wedding invitation work slows down for the year. While Juna naps, when Brendan gets home, and every other spare second I can squeeze out of the day, I’m working on new designs for 2014 (including a baby announcement collection!) and brainstorming some new product ideas. It’s amazing how a little space from work can be so invigorating.
Today while Juna was at the babysitter’s, I ran over to Brian Allen’s studio to check on the color of her baby announcements. I can’t wait to show them to you soon, but here are photos from Brian’s print shop.
After seeing the first printer’s proof, we changed the super-pale pink I chose to a slightly darker, more peachy color, and picked a softer purple brown for the text instead of the black I envisioned. Can’t wait to see these finished. I’ve got some envelope addressing to do!

A few weeks ago my cousin got married on a beautiful farm in the Catskills. I hope to share more pictures soon, but in the meantime I thought I’d share the wedding invitations we created together! Our grandparents were art lovers and our grandfather was an artist, so in part to pay homage to that aspect of our family Betsy wanted painterly wedding invitations. We played with lots of options (even using some of the patterned fabrics from my grandparents’ home!) and finally settled on this version. It all came together in the end with a striped envelope liner, twine wrap, and dried flower tucked inside the envelope.
Betsy wore an amazing Jenny Packham wedding dress and the bridespeople wore various shades of greens, blues, and purples. Here are some quick snapshots we took:
And Juna was pretty stylish too.
My Byzantine design for Bella Figura is this month’s featured design, which means that it’s 20% off if you order 6 or more pieces! Stop by the Bella Figura blog to see vintage, modern, and formal customizations of this design. And, I should add that the original design looks great in a more traditional vertical layout as well as square.
