No, I haven't forgotten about my blog, promise!

The website is coming along nicely. My husband's putting the final touches on it at the moment, so we should be live very very soon. I'm quite excited, as the site will serve as my new 'shopfront' and be packed with information and photos. I'll be updating the portfolio section often, so it will be one to check regularly. There's also information on international wedding invitation and stationery orders (yes, I'm just as keen to work with overseas clients as the local ones) which will hopefully answer a lot of questions that I regularly get asked. I'll also be asking for opinions on the site when it's up, so stay tuned.

The other exciting news are Poppy Letterpress's very first two wedding clients, Laura in Canberra, and Susie in Brisbane. Both of these girls get me so excited about their designs, and I just love hearing about their wedding plans so far. It's a great privilege to be involved in their weddings. I can't wait to print their sets! More to come...

3 new wedding invitations

I'm having a far more productive week now that I'm over the flu. I finished off the leaves invite, yesterday I printed the butterflies, and today I printed the decorative border. The border's my favourite, and the registration wasn't nearly as bad as I'd anticipated. The pink turned out particularly vibrant, it's almost fluoro against the beige.

I've only printed about a dozen of each, as they're just samples. Can't wait to do a whole wedding's worth. There's just something so exciting about wedding stationery.

I may print one more of my 6 new designs before I run out of paper and have to order more.

Leaves WIP

I've started printing one of the wedding invitation designs. Three colour, but I've left the text until later, as I have the registration worked out perfectly on the tympan for the leaves. I'm still using the small base that I had made for the Adana, because I'm not convinced that the larger one is completely flat.

Here's a sneak preview of the design so far (excuse the poor photography today):
