Birthday Card

I made this card for my cousin's birthday.

Place Cards


I created two banners for the wedding, one for the seating chart table and one for the guest book table.

Adult Favours

The adult favours I created for Liz and Chad's wedding were seed packets.  Inside was a package of hydrangea seeds and a thank you message.  The card had a ribbon on the end so it would easily slide out of the sleeve.

Guest Book

For the guest book, I decorated a bamboo bread box.  Each guest signed a card inside and wrote a special message for the bride and groom.

Table NumbersT

These were the table numbers that I made for Liz and Chad's wedding.

Chair Back Cards

These went on the back of the chairs at Liz and Chad's Wedding.  They either had the Gitxsan symbol for the orca, wolf or frog to honour the bride's heritage.

Wish I could have figured out how to orient the photo correctly.  A little blip in my journey with blogger.  :)

Seating Chart

The seating chart for Liz and Chad's wedding was hung on tree branches (in a vase) that were sprayed in silver.  Some cards had the Celtic tree of life and others had the symbol of the Orca.  Both images represented the heritage of the bride and groom.
