{Straight From The Studio} Our Martha Inspiration: Part 2

For those of you have gotten used to our daily excerpts, you will notice I am showing you these same photographs again!

For any new readers, a quick recap - I picked up summer 2010 Martha Stewart's Weddings magazine last week and I saw the cutest party banner & food labels that they made out of vintage fabric for a wedding, and then showed how to do it out of paper.... See below!

{which inspired me to draw up this... not knowing what to make out of these fresh colors and simple graphics, I asked the readers for ideas... see below}

Sure enough, we found a comment that inspired us even further!
Erika, wrote in and told us that her daughter Charlotte, who is 4 years old, said it should be for a party called "Clownin' Around"...
Our current Circus/Carnival collection sells quite frequently, and "Clownin' Around" could add another option to this hot party theme!
So I passed along my design inspirations to Maureen, because she was in the mood to tackle this new invite design.
We collaborated ideas on this invitation to offer a new design that could appeal to everyone!
We are so excited to show you, how YOU (the readers/clients) help us create such fun designs!!!
....drum roll please.....
Think Coney Island - circa early 1900's.....
We wanted this invite to feel like old-school letterpress/vintage carnival posters...
Introducing: Clownin' Around
We will be working on a matching DIY party collection... and we will share it with you when it is ready!

(Erika- we will contact you, when the entire collection is done to send you something special... please thank your little Charlotte for us!!! We hope we made her proud!!!)
Stay tuned for more from this "Spectacular" collection!!!
