>> Happiest of Holidays

Stopping by to send a quick hello and a Merry Christmas Eve before we hit the road traveling to see family the next two days. Here is a snapshot of the holiday card collaboration between Matt and myself this season!! Image

Please forgive me for sharing the layout on the computer, it totally slipped my mind to take a picture as we were stamping, addressing, and writing our cards between holidays movies! Proof that my desk exploded with crafty holiday cheer: Image

May you have a joyous holiday filled with laughter and love!

xo,

>> wedding collab part 2

As promised, here is part 2 of the Matt and Nicole wedding gift collaboration!!

We chose to create the piece on a nice sheet of bristol paper- it was more fitting for the couple and the quote we decided on. Can I just say how much I love the irony in the gift/quote. The bride and groom literally have been together forever, and have such a sense of humor that we knew this was perfect (I kind of want to make a print for ourselves, is that bad?!).


Like the previous collaboration, Matt designed the type layout and I created the decorative border of frames. As I was inking inside the frames, I was inspired by our very own home decor and included things we have on our walls- like maps and our initials… can you tell we had such a blast designing these gifts?

Really can’t wait until we work together again- maybe this time it’ll be for us to keep!!

>> wedding collab part 1

Happy Monday!!

I can hardly contain my excitement for what I’m about to share! The past 2 weekends Matt and I have attended weddings, and decided for each of them to give a more personal gift. We combined our super talents of being creative and worked together for the first time EVER on a finished piece of art. In our 5+ years of being together, this is truly the first collaboration of Matt and Nicole. Its amazing that you can see both of us and our styles melding together.

Ok, on with the snapshot!

Matt discovered the quote and found it quite fitting for the future husband and wife. And yes, that is a slab of wood! How perfect for the quote (which in case you haven’t figured it out, Matt designed) and the surrounding imagery done by myself! We were able to draw right on the wood, with no ink bleed or smearing.

We fell so in love with how it turned out, we almost didn’t want to give it away!! However… we are completely thrilled that the happy couple gets to enjoy/hang it in their new home together.

And here’s a peek at the gift wrapped up in the most lovely Rifle Co paper that I  got from Mommalicious!!

all wrapped up
