Jennifer and Lynn’s Vintage Engagement Photos

Leave a comment

I am not exactly a professional photographer, but I like to try. These photos were taken using a Canon Rebel XTI camera with a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 lens. Most of them came out too bright and blown out. This requires some editing, so I decided to vintage up my sister’s engagement photos. I thought it would be a good idea to have the same kind of vintage style in my photos as I do in my invitations on Etsy. I was able to do this by using these free photoshop actions that I found online. Maybe one day I could offer vintage photography along with the graphic design that I do for weddings and parties. I wonder how many people would be interested in that…???? Well, for now please enjoy these…… If you like, please leave a comment :) Hope everyone is having a lovely day! Sincerely, Christi Couch

Add a bird, or a plane, add anything to your customized Newly Wedlibs. Newly Wedlibs are Hydraulic Graphix version of Madlibs for weddings. You can never have enough laughter in your wedding day. So add some more with these madlib cards! They are always hilarious! Newly Wedlibs can be an alternative to a guest book or simply use it for a wedding favor. These wedlibs can be modified for any wedding theme. Here are a few examples of wedlibs that I have done recently.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Party

Leave a comment

Host a Mickey Mouse Club Party!  A Mickey Mouse cake is a must have. You can use a 6″ round cake pan for the face and 3″ or 4″ cake pans for the ears. Use this drawing guide for the details of the face with icing. Purchase a cookie cutter from Jazzy Apple Gal. Use the cookie cutter for rice crispy treats, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, pineapple and COOKIES! Make plain cookies and have the kids decorate their own cookie with icing. Dress the birthday boy for the occasion with this Mickey Mouse Club shirt from Home Arts Boerne. You are going to need a clubhouse welcome sign for your door. Get one at Were Going Together. Use these Mickey Die Cuts for the clubhouse banner from Cutting Up in Texas. And don’t forget your Mickey confetti!  For a special touch, hang large coloring book pages of Mickey and crew on the wall for coloring with crayons. Find Mickey Mouse Club invitations and thank you cards at The Invite Lady Shop. There you have it folks! I hope this will help get your Mickey Mouse Club party started!

Erika and Mike’s Wedding

1 Comment

Here are some images of design work that I did for a wedding in Asheville, North Carolina in October 2012. It was the perfect weekend to see the leaves in their most perfect fall colors. The theme chosen by the bride was very organic with earthy tones, greens, browns and egg plant. Instead of using table numbers, they used music festival names for the wedding tables. This idea can be personalized for anyone’s wedding. If you and your groom like movies, name your tables with movies titles. If you and your groom like to read books, name your tables with book titles. The bride did a beautiful job attaching the programs to burlap and stamping the back with the initial of her new last name. The burlap gave a nice organic touch to the ceremony. The carnival ticket sign was found at an antique shop in Asheville, NC. It was a very unique idea to use this for the seating chart. I designed the seating chart to fit inside the iron bars. Alisha Silver Photography did such an amazing job on the wedding photos!
