Jennifer & Dustin's Save the Dates

Jennifer spotted the original New Orleans Save the Dates on Zazzle and wanted to have it in her own wedding colors. I think it looks awesome on the felt paper, and there's plenty of space to include wedding details. It's now available on Zazzle as well.

Lori's family and business monograms

Lori was the lucky winner of two free custom monograms from Custom Printables! She asked for one monogram for her family and another for her Etsy business, Snugglejunkie (don't you just love that name?!). She asked for a red, black, and white color scheme for one and pink and brown for the second. Of course, I couldn't just decide on one, so Lori gets two family monograms. (The address has been changed.)

Wharton School conference program

In November, I was invited by the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania to create a program template for their conference on the Emergence and Impact of User-Generated Content. It's been a while since I've had the files, but I am so excited to share some pages with you. The text (on pages 6-7 shown here) was added by the conference staff; I designed the template, including cover page, inside headers and footers, and the Notes pages.

Free Printable: Candy bar wrapper and water bottle labels

I was so inspired by the color of the sky today (and the first day of Spring Break) that I decided to create this adorable candy bar wrapper and matching water bottle labels!

To edit them, open the file in Adobe Reader or Acrobat and enter in your own text. The default font is the adorable -- and free -- Marketing Script, which you can download from Pick up the labels over at the Custom Printables website. Enjoy!

Five-star review and photos from Samara's wedding

Thanks to Samara for sending some photos from her wedding day, including two of the Custom Printables program created especially for her! This program is available as a four-, six- or eight-page program, and can be customized for any religious or secular ceremony.

Samara added these kind thoughts to her WeddingWire review:
"Valerie's design for our wedding programs was personal and beautiful. She was so easy to work with as I asked for any additions or revisions to my first draft, and she was very quick to respond to any emails. I was so pleased with the design and received many compliments. THANK YOU!"

Kim and Sean's wedding program

Kim and Sean wanted an elegant and modern single-page wedding program based off of an existing Custom Printables program. They knew the font and general appearance they were looking for, and I added a contemporary pinstripe to their design. They also requested a custom monogram for the lower right corner. I really love the colors they selected!
