dean and jehan

 jehan wanted shabby chic and was so full of wonderful ideas. it was great and funny and crazy at the same time. almost ran out of time because it took us along time to settle for this bi-fold after so many also nice prototypes. blame my day job for sending me out of the country suddenly. but of course, nothing will stop me from delivering on time, not even distance.

cover art

a closer look

got this neat set of embossing stencils from germany.  am getting more on february. but for orders for more than a hundred, this needs time to make as we do it by hand.

 jehan and dean's invites are the first ones with the TGFP logo =)

i have a new addition to TGFP, my pretty niece Kim, is now my apprentice. she'll brave the traffic just to do the deliveries, too. LOL. She's also in charge of the other stuff that we do. here's a teaser:

dean and jehan and their faux plaster baroque frames

yup, i have minions who make props. will post photos of those soon. haha. my old highschool students have started working on teeny projects like this.

Chloe is turning 18!

i love Chloe's fabric envelopes. i love how they look and how they feel. my envelope maker rocks! she was 
stressed like crazy, but she rules. LOL. 
Chloe wanted something like VIP access to the backstage of a fashion show. and it has got to be french( haha, her second name is France). Here's what TGFP came up with. 


Shelah and Ivan vintage retro disco yeah!

Shelah wanted retro and disco and i love prints. we make a good team! but ivan is marrying her, and i'll settle for cardamom. LOL. this project was a breeze, but we had to hold our breath because philpost snail mail almost didn't make it on time to sweden. anyway, i hope you love this one. credits to the guy who made the patterns. in the future, i'll make my patterns, too. was just really busy these past few months.

stole the next photo from FB, this is the other side of the envelope. love the stamps and shelah's handwriting.

chrissele and carlo

i finished painting and processing the artwork in a 3 days i think. the monogram, now that took a long time. i did a couple of designs, but they didn't fit carlo and chrissele's personality. chrissele spent hours here working on her monogram. haha. here's what we came up with:

getting this printed this weekend. i'm excited!

Mira and Godie

around the same time i was working on lanie and ryan's invite, i received an email from mira. mira is based abroad and i was also moving from one city to another, so we just corresponded through email. this invite was both fun and challenging. i had to completely scrap out the first cover art as i felt that mira deserves something more colorful considering her bubbly and friendly personality. mira had the invites printed at SG. TGFP only provided the art.

the cover art for a bear-y special couple. tamis!

and the rsvp and map page. i love the map. haha
thanks to mira for providing the images. good luck on your wedding day!

carlo and chrissele save the date

my lovely friends are getting married. still haven't thought of the complete invite design concept yet. but it's gonna be just a postcard type one with a separate rsvp card and envelope. this is very challenging for me because we've been friends since we were teenagers. i hope i can make them happy. LOL. oh, and i'll be a bridesmaid, of course. i need to diet!

Lanie and Ryan

hello! i really love my printers. they keep saving my life ( i was going to say ass, but you don't say ass in wedding blogs, right?). anyway, here is lanie and ryan's invite. i didn't post the inside as we don't want anyone to gatecrash, do we? i love love the printing. love it. love love it.

here's the design for the invitation cover art.

and what it looks printed. this invitation type consists of a card-type cover art with both sides in full color, 2 sheets of parchment inserts, and an envelope. (prices start at Php 85)

this project was completed while i was still suffering from jet lag from 4 different timezones. haha! i was really happy with lanie and ryan's feedback. only good words. lanie was so excited and already wanted to give them out the day i delivered the invites. haha! makes my heart feel good.

Lanie and Ryan save the date

the last quarter was full of surprises for me. it's been a long time since i had a wedding invitation project(although wedding album layouts were aplenty). first surprise came from lanie. then mira. they contacted me a few days before i flew out for a business trip. imagine the pressure! plus the fact that both girls were getting married in less than 6 months, my, i was on my toes the whole of march! so here is lanie and ryan's Save the Date. i lost the pic for the formal invite so i'll post that one when i get back home (yup,i'm away again for work). lol.

but the thing is, even though i'm always flying out, i never fail to deliver on deadlines. i'm so amazing. haha! chee!
