FEATURE FRIDAY! -0 Those Little Extras

I HEAR YOIU SAYING......

So..... what do you mean by 
Little Extras?

We have been asked for and made, 
many different items over the years. 


This page shows just a few of them :-)


Our tags are great  for people who want
 to make things themselves and add a bit of 
personalisation to their WEDDING FAVOURS or

anything else you-may have in mind.  



The quotation reads
"All because two people met,
and fell in love"

But you can have any quotation printed that floats your boat.

Here they are being used on mini buckets, 

filled with love hearts ... cute aren't they?



Probably the most popular quotation I have ever come across....
 I have lettered this on paper, canvas and greeting cards that many times I've lost count.


'Two souls with a single thought,

Two hearts that beat as one'


And here it is used on a mini candle favour. Light a candle, make a wish....

Candle_favour

Now..... these I just HAVE to share with you. A client came in having an Easter Wedding and wanted me to make some egg cups, so that she could use them as both her Wedding Favours AND her place cards. We first tried wood.... but they didn't turn out so well.... then we found some china pens... this is the result...And I have made many more since then. The Bride added a Kinder Egg, bought in bulk from a wholesalers. FAB IDEA!


WEDDING SIGNS in paper, wood and card are increasingly popular. These signs below are made from MDF. The size of the board and therefore the cost is determined by how many words you want on them. Prices for these start at just £7.50


WISHING or BLESSING TREES are largely taking place over guest books these days. There's something magical about writing out a *WISH* and tying it to a tree for the happy couple to be....


I made these tags which can be personalised 

and a message of your own choosing can be added. 



Here's a close-up with some brightly coloured stuffed hearts. You could hang MDF or wooden hearts if your Wedding is more VINTAGE or SHABBY CHIC.

I hire the Wishing Trees out, but the tags look just as good hanging from twisted hazel or willow, available from most florists, popped in a jar :-)

A word of caution though, which might be a blessing or a bind... the willow will root pretty well in water.... as I found out when I tried this at the shop!

Strewn with battery powered fairy lights these look magical! 


I know a lot of Brides are into DIY these days to save a bit of money wherever they can... these personalised Wedding Tags can be glued to larger more colourful pieces of card and a cut out paper butterfly can look pretty cool! 


You can make them any size you want.


We produce all kinds of printed and foiled items. 

The only limit is your imagination 

Prices are based on size and not quantity 
Wishing Tree Tags for example
Start from as little as 45p each
Even less if you are 
using your own ribbon.


WE ALSO PROVIDE.....
Table name cards....
Gift ideas..... 
Table number cards.....
and LOTS MORE!


So.... if you are looking for something entirely different
and have an idea or 2... give us a call and we'll see what we can do.

FEATURE FRIDAY! - Personalised Wedding Albums & Guest Books

Looking for a Wedding Album or Guest Book?

As well as training to become a fully qualified Calligrapher and Lettering Artist 
I also took courses in Creative Bookbinding.





The Wedding Albums and Guest Books
below are all made by me and I made 
them to each clients requirements .

No 2 books are exactly the same! 





Matching albums to colour themes
is all part of the job...
and makes it a little different from the 
usual, shop bought, Ivory or White





Some couples, prefer to have white with coloured accents.
such as in the ribbon or behind the name plate



This one was very different, but as the 
Bride and Groom chose Green and Black 
for their wedding and found it impossible
 to actually find a book that wanted, 
they were delighted to find I could
 make one to their specifications.






The book below was made for a couples 
SILVER Wedding Anniversary! 
They had never got round to actually 
having a proper Wedding Album, 
but  promised themselves they would 
get round to it someday.... 
that 'someday' was 25 years later lol 



Hand made Indian petal inclusion paper
 was used for the binding. 





IBS__Wedding_Album_Cover



I have made hundreds of books over
 the years and not just for Weddings either... 
Here's one for a Birthday.... 'It's all about Steve!'




And one of the great things about being 
a qualified calligrapher is that I can 
personalise the inside pages BEFORE
 I sew up the binding.




Here's a close up of the inside wording....



Here's a pretty pink guest book  
showing some really sweet hanging charms. 
It's great to personalise them in this way :-)

A_Guest_Book_5


Prices: Fully personalised 
Guest books from £20
Honeymoon and Hen/Stag Albums from £50
Wedding Albums from just £65


Prices vary depending on the paper used and the simplicity or complexity of the book


So.... if you are looking for something entirely different
and have an idea or 2... give us a call and we'll see what we can do.


As always.... contact us for further details.

FEATURE FRIDAY! - Personalised Postbox

KEEP YOUR CARDS.... 
OFTEN CONTAINING MONEY, SAFE!

Here's where we get to be really creative!
We have a huge amount of unique ideas 
to throw at the Bride and Groom.

My latest one has been to incorporate Calla Lilies
on the outside.

Once the wedding is over I'll share them here.
In the meantime here's just a few of the many we have made. 

PLEASE NOTE:

If you order by Mail Order... all our boxes 
will be sent decorated but Flat Packed for ease
of posting and to prevent crushing in transit.


Emma & Stephen 
Chose hearts with silver, Purple and Green as their theme


Holly & Geoff's 
was a bit more subtle with 
pale pink butterflies



I LOVE it when Brides get a bit creative with their colours
and choose 2 complimentary colours that go together.
This purple and hot pink was one of them




And here... for an Autumn Wedding....



Emily and Tom's theme was to be Bombers and Butterflies.
As Tom had already compromised on letting Emily have her butterflies
it was only fair she let him have his planes on the box.....



Amy & Ian had Ivy trails.....



And how's this for a rather different 
knock yer eyes out colour scheme
The Orange, Yellow and Hot Pink
were the colours of the Brides gerbera bouquet



And... this is perfect for the Rainbow themed wedding....


So.... if you are looking for something entirely different
and have an idea or 2... give us a call and we'll see what we can do.

As always.... contact us for further details.

There's more to me than Wedding Stationery

One of the really fabulous things about having a blog is, it’s yours and yours alone! You can use it in any way you see fit. For the most part, this blog is about my Wedding Invitations and Stationery…. But it hasn’t always been that way!


THERE’S MORE TO ME THAN WEDDING STATIONERY!

During my early years as a calligrapher, almost all the content on here was to share my creative spirit and show off all the lovely lettered things I’d made, that seems way back in a previous life now.

For the past 3 years of my past 25 years has been concentrated on Wedding Invitations and Stationery and aimed primarily at the North Yorkshire, Cleveland and County Durham area. However I do know I have blog readers who come from far and wide and from all corners of the world. Some of them are fellow stationery designers, some are from my calligraphy family and others are creative types, so not everyone who lands on this page is a potential client or Bride.

Now…. As well as being chief maker and shaker at Inspired byScript, I also mentor, guide and support, other small businesses to get to grips with marketing, blogging and building a small website… more importantly ‘Modern Day Marketing’. Getting yourself out there and the minefield of the many social media platforms they need to engage in is a bit head blagging. Of course, most people know about Facebook and Twitter but there’s Pinterest, Google + and of course good old blogs and in particular Blogger to get to grips with too.

As well as the business mentoring I do, I also love to help the DIY Bride! Together we come up with some amazing and creative ideas. Sometimes they get me to make it for them and at other times we make things together. Before I set up Inspired by Script I used to teach Calligraphy all over the country. I love getting people all fired up and creative and so miss my teaching days. Once a teacher, always a teacher J

I’m also inspired to motivate and coach people in a ‘Feeling the Fear and doing it anyway’ kind of way. When I went though a particularly bad experience with anxiety and depression I learnt a lot which in fact turned my life around and it’s great to be able to pass on these techniques to others. This also comes in handy when dealing with the stressed out Bride! See all things come full circle in the end!


WHERE I AM NOW:

I’d love to share those other sides of me here, but somehow it just doesn’t feel right. My motivational calligraphy work certainly helps some people, however I’m not sure visitors to my blog are expecting that kind of thing. Mostly my audience consists of Brides & Grooms wanting wedding stationery.

What do I do? I’m struggling here.
Do I set up separate blogs and websites for this kind of stuff…or slip in the odd blog post here?


I DON'T MIND TELLING YOU

I'm worried that I may not be taken seriously as a Wedding Invitation Designer if I go too far off the beaten track. Reading the many advice blogs, the thing they say over and over again is... don't dilute your content with other things. If you are a Wedding Stationer then blog about Wedding Stationery.... but I am so much more than that! 


BUT! AND HERE''S THE GOOD THING!

You'll get to see and read the real me. One thing people say about me is I am real, down to earth and authentic. I'm not some high flying business woman, raking in the cash. Nope, I'm just me. Glad that the money I am given in exchange for my Wedding Invitations and Stationery, pays the bills at the studio and I have the pleasure of a workspace that's not at home :-) Plus I get to meet such wonderful people face-to-face. 


SO! I NEED YOU HELP! 

Any thoughts/help/advice greatly appreciated
