Photo Caption from @katrinaalana: We wanted to give our lovely goddaughter her first birthday present since she will be flying back home for her celebration. Advance happy birthday Avie baby!
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.
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.
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?
We joined the flea market organized by Public Garden at the National Museum last February and we had a great time. The museum has always been one of our favorite places in Singapore and we go there often so we were excited when we got the invitation to participate as a seller at that venue. Just as expected, the light was great and the AC was cool. This made selling on a weekend very pleasant.
As usual, Public Garden has a great selection of sellers and they always have vendors who sell food and drinks which is a godsend to the participating vendors. We didn’t manage to eat before going to the museum and so we sampled all the baked goodies.
We bought several cupcakes from Plain Vanilla and I really loved the red velvet cupcakes.
There were handmade notebooks from Kariton by 1372 Designs made by Ruby and Seb.
Kikei Mono sold these adorable little monsters. Would you believe these are made from socks?
By My Old School was selling vintage items. These old Russian badges caught my eye.
This gorgeous hat by Mandy Pan really stood out from the rest of her display. If I had a great garden party to attend in the next few months I would have snagged this.
Hey Kumo had these cool travel guides. They had great graphics on the covers and I would have loved to browse their items more if I had the time to.
As usual there were several jewelry sellers with unique goods like Strangely Yours and By Invite Only.
I love the bags that Irene from Carrot Pepper makes. The cute fabric and great form makes for a great statement.
Fair Flare sold party goods. I haven’t seen stuff like these sold here in Singapore. I’m definitely bookmarking their shop for future party styling.
Made Little sold these cute kids clothes and bibs. If we had a little ones we would have grabbed a few of these outfits.
As you can clearly see there are lots of cool vendors selling great items. We bought several items throughout the day and hopefully when you visit fairs and bazaars you are inspired to support these artists and small businesses.
