Dave & Chelsey Passport Wedding Invitation

This invitation was hard and intricate work, but I loved every second of designing it! What a special couple! My lovely friend Chelsey who was born in SA, but has lived in US since childhood, moved back to SA last year and met her dream man, a South African.  Both of them have travelled a lot and are planning to keep on travelling in the future, they wanted to incorporate that feel into their wedding and stationary, hence the vintage passport invitation!  It is in a booklet format and stitched with off-white cotton thread...enjoy:)

Birthday Invitation

This invitation is for my Grandmother's 80th birthday. She asked for something with shells, and this really is just a peep of her sweet, feminine, fun, youthful, deep, lovely, beautiful nature. She is a jewel of a woman who loves with her whole heart. Every moment spent with her is a cherished one. Enjoy:)

Stephan word 1

Jeanne-MariƩ asked me to design an invitation for their youngest son's first birthday. The theme is 'monkey' because, like she said it: 'want hy is mos mamms se ou apie!' And their kids also like to watch Waybuloo, Stephan's sister said that he looks like the monkey in the program, so we just had to bring it into the design! And don't worry, he is the cutest, most beautiful baby you've ever seen! (just to reassure you after all this monkey-talk) :)

Promotional gift for Lizelle Lotter

As promised, here is the finished work of the last design work for Lizelle. She wanted something special and lasting to give to her clients after they booked photography shoots with her. So I brainstormed and came up with the idea of a shopper bag nicely designed! I walked around in Stellenbosch until I found the perfect tree to draw. So when we were happy with the tree, it got screenprinted on this 100% cotton shopper bag with her website, and then Lizelle's logo was embroidered onto bag. What an awesome project this was!! Thank you Lizelle, was such a blessing working with you!! :) So...if you want one of these, go book a shoot with Lizelle Lotter!
