Craftbelly Does Weddings Too!

Earlier in the year I worked on a custom frame project for a wedding client. It was such a fun experience, mostly because the bride was so great to work with. She wanted to use my frames to display their table numbers! I thought it was a great idea and I'm sure they were able to give frames to people as gifts afterwards. We matched the colors of the paper to complement the tablescape and overall palette of the wedding. Also, the wedding was in Chicago where I used to live so you know I was excited about that!

Frames in progress. 25 of them!

We completed the project so far in advance that I almost forgot about it but the wedding finally happened and I just love how the frames turned out. Most of the time, I sell a frame and never see it again but because this was a wedding, there were pictures! I loved being a part of their special day. All photos seen below are courtesy of Naturally Yours Events, the wedding planners of the event!

Autumnal Paper Love

I can spend hours pouring through my favorite websites that sell paper, probably similar to how people  can waste countless hours on Facebook. Sometimes I literally just go through page by page and gawk at the gorgeous patterns and colors, without really creating any sort of database of favorites. My absolute favorite place to buy paper online is this incredible site called Paper Mojo, run by three women out of Raleigh, North Carolina. It's my go to resource for when I'm starting a custom frame project. I thought it would make sense to start some reference for myself where I could keep track of papers that I liked and figured my blog was a great place to start. This first group is inspired by our current season of Fall. It has been an absolutely gorgeous transition here in Denver, with nature just putting on a show every where I look. The leaves in particular are just stunning. Below is a little group of papers that I think would be great for any sort of Fall projects, whether it be for a wedding invitations, accents for decor at a party, or seasonal decor around your house.
