Mustache Man Birthday Party

My godchild Mavi is celebrating his first birthday party next month and we helped create the party decorations for the party. His mom Meliza has been a friend of mine since high school.

The theme is little gentleman and mustache. The colors for the party is blue, green and yellow.

We decided to create a custom cake topper to match the theme. I hand-painted the wooden cake topper and sealed with nontoxic sealant so that it will be safe to put on top of the cake.

We brainstormed the idea for the invitation and the gingham and other illustration were made specifically for this occasion.

Unfortunately we will not be able to fly over for the party so we will be sending our love and birthday wishes to Mavi from Singapore.

Note: Please contact us via sales@katrinaalana.com for custom cake topper orders.

Circus Theme Birthday Invitation

My cousin Venus asked me to design a circus themed birthday invitation for her that she can print at home. She had an inspiration photo from Martha Stewart.

I wanted to take the font type and use of paper accessories as inspiration for my original design. The vintage graphics are courtesy of The Graphics Fairy.

A Birthday Invitation for Venus

The set is composed of the main invitation which is wrapped in wax paper that is tied with twine. Two paper accessories are used to give the invitation a more vintage look. I designed a round sticker for the envelope so that there is continuity from the outside to the inside.

The Invitation Set

She was happy with the first draft so a printable PDF was sent to Venus. I gave her some instructions on what materials to use for the invitation.

We’re getting a few projects for digital copies of invitations and we are thinking of selling some of our designs. What do you think? Would you be interested in purchasing digital designs that you can print at home or email to invite your family and friends?

Erika and Mark’s Wedding Invitation with a Wax Seal

I was so excited when I saw a link to Erika’s blog, the fab and the frugal, featuring her wedding invitation with our M&E wax seal. The black and white invitation looks so elegant and the punch of Kelly green sealing wax adds such a great accent color to their invitation.

We love to collaborate with artist and sellers. Kasey approached us on using our seals for a wedding fair she did early this year.  You can view her lovely paper goods at her Etsy shop and read more about her work at her blog.
