Audrey & Steve: Rabbit and Pig Fairytale Inspired Invitation

When Audrey first approached me with her idea of creating an invitation based on her and Steve's Chinese zodiac characters, we both knew right off the bat that I was the right designer for the challenge! I was so excited of her whimsical vision and immediately had the perfect illustrator in mind for the job. I called up my long time friend and super talented artist Corey Peters. He created the most delightful characters based on playful stories and activities that Audrey and Steve share together. We then continued to design all the graphics from the wedding- making sure every detail fit Audrey's vision perfectly.

Check out the rest of the wedding details from Bride and Bloom's Spring/Summer 2011 issue!

Wedding Coordinator: Brooke Keegan Weddings and Events
Makeup and Hair: Theresa Huang Makeup and Hair Design
Venue: The Resort at Pelican Hill Newport Beach

Change is in the Air

We have big news to share with you today. As some of you already know, Dan and I are engaged to be married this fall. One change begets another… TISELLE is relocating to Chicago!

For the past year or so, Dan has been traveling extensively for his work. Our normal schedule has become seeing Dan off every Sunday afternoon then picking him up every Friday night. When he first started traveling he was flying all over the country. More recently, he accepted an assignment that will keep him relatively stationary for at least the next couple of years – in Chicago. After much discussion we decided to just move there! We are looking forward to beginning married life in the Second City. Chicago is a town full paperphiles- a perfect new home for TISELLE!

Our official move date is still up in the air. Currently we are looking to move in early 2012.

What does this mean for TISELLE, you ask. Well, only better things to come. We're so plugged in to our roots here in Los Angeles that this move will simply allow us to expand to the Midwest while making it easier to increase our exposure on the East coast. Our line of letterpress cards will continue to grow. We have several new cards brewing in our studio. We will still offer custom design services and social stationery. In short, it will be business as usual!

"And the nominees are..."

We are tickled pink this weekend to find out that we were chosen as a finalist for not just one but two awards this coming spring!

The first is our WTF Braille card. We are one of three finalists for the prestigious 22nd Annual Louie Award for the Best Humorous Friendship/ Encouragement Card greeting card over $3.50. Each card is blind judged and scored on the basis of six criteria – Imagination, Impact, Artistry, Harmony (the blend of visual and verse), Sensibility and Value (the balance of product quality and price). The dinner award ceremony will take place May 17 in New York during the course of the National Stationery Show.

The other is for The Stationery Trend Award, otherwise known as "The Trendy." We made it as one the top 10 finalist in the Greeting Card Category! The amazing thing is that this is voted online by retailers- the people who buy our stuff. I guess if the Louie Award is like the Academy Award of greeting cards, then The Trendy is like the People's Choice Awards. Online voting for the final round is open now! Voting ends April 17th.

All this anticipation and excitement leading up to our third exhibition for the National Stationery Show in May! Can't wait!
