I was asked to design a new business card for Euroco and from there stemmed the idea that they need a website address on to put on the business card…one problem-they didn’t have a website! So from there I got involved in designing a website. Go check out www.euroco.ca and let me know what you think. I have dabbled in blog design for myself and others and tinkered around with html code—but more for fun; not a real life, corporate thing…it was somewhat daunting.
One thing I did realize in designing the website was that the company needed an update on their logo.That was more up my alley. I tried to keep the same theme going so people would still recognize the brand just with a bit of a twist.
Here’s the old logo and business card…
Here’s the new logo I designed…
And here is the logo on the business card…
(not sure why this pic is sooo blurry…sorry )
I am pretty proud of how they turned out and Cornel and Leia over at Euroco thought they were fantastic.

Well around here it’s Stampede Time. That’s a pretty big deal for most Calgarians and their neighbors. For those of you that don’t know, the Calgary Stampede is 10 days of cowboyin’, thrill ridin’, game playin’, eatin’, partyin’ fun. You can check out their Instagram Page to get the idea.
So because of the Stampeded mood I was inspired to search out design ideas for a rustic, cowboy style event. Here we go…(oh and just so you know, I found these pictures through Pinterest-of course- and clicking on the image will take you their site…)
The first thing that sets the tone and mood of your wedding is your invitation. It’s generally what your guests see first before the wedding that helps them feel what your wedding will be like.
I love this invitation. It uses vintage type, with a romantic doily and rustic twine or leather string to tie together.
Of course though, for most brides, the most important thing about their wedding is the dress!
Rustic often means outdoors, so getting married in nature just fits…
I’m loving the fact that the ladies are in cowboy boots!
But getting married in the outdoors doesn’t have to be wild. This setup is so simple but it speaks volumes. And, of course, for a rustic event hay bales are a must!
Having the flowers attach to the end of the bale is such a pretty way to decorate your aisles.
You could also dress up your Mason jars with twine and ribbon. A very easy DIY.
After the ceremony move your jars to the dinner tables at your reception which would be amazing with wood tables like these.
What about a place for your cake?
This use of wooden crates is quite unique. I like how the pretty, laced cake contrasts with the rustic, ruggedness of the crates.
Send your guests home with adorable jars of jelly.
Personalize the jars with squares of fabric that match your wedding colors, and add little tags done in the same style as your invites. A favor that is delicious and useful.
Enjoy planning your rustic wedding.

Recently my dear friend Brittny, over at Remember When Photography, asked me to participate in a 1940’s stylized wedding photo shoot. She told me she wanted to do something “Pearl Harbor” inspired and that we had the use of an Airplane Hanger. Having very little time to get all this done I immediately got to work pulling together idea boards.
Here is my main table idea board…
Here is what my ideas turned into…
The Dinner Table
I think my favorite things about the table were the martini glasses and the mix matched vintage tea cups.
I designed the table number and menu to match the wedding invitation and keep to the vintage feel.
The Cake & Favor Table
The bouquet in both pictures was created by Christine’s Flower Creations.
I designed the invitation to fit the aviator/vintage theme we had going. The envelope I made out of hand dyed doilies—took a bit of work and stained fingers to get the blue just right—
The Save The Date Card…
The Invitation Set…
