cameron's university of texas at austin graduation announcements

Lauren Covington announcement custom graduation kraft neenah paper school stardream texas

My little brother Cameron graduated from the University of Texas at Austin last weekend. He didn't want to pay and arm and a leg for formal announcements, so I was thrilled when he came to me for a custom, affordable solution. I used traditional wording, type and layout for the invitation but used the #10 size card to make it a little more interesting. I had these laser-printed on Crest solar white paper and backed by Stardream copper paper that comes pretty darn close to UT's signature burnt orange. For the mailing, I dug through my vintage stamp collection and pulled anything...

baby charlie's birth announcements

Lauren Covington announcement aquamarine baby baby boy foil gold foil mint stardream

My biggest announcement yet... we welcomed sweet Charlie into this world on September 10, 2014. He was born such a little grumpster and like every new mama, I anxiously waited for him to smile at us. When I finally captured his first little coy smile, the wheels started turning for his baby announcement. I finally settled on gold foil stamped onto Stardream aquamarine paper with a matte mint envelope, and some of my current favorite fonts, Core Circus, Raleway and Melany Lane.

grapefruit moving announcements / homage to the rosemary salty dog

Lauren Covington announcement blue charm & fig coral grapefruit moving new home paper recipe stationery watercolor

Our biggest accomplishment of 2013 was finding a place to call our own. After some aggressive searching and saving we found a great little 1938 bungalow in Houston's East End. During our search, one house we visited had an amazing grapefruit tree and although the house wasn't right for us, we were hellbent on planting a grapefruit tree in whichever house we ended up buying. We found our house, we planted the tree and even though it bears no fruit, it was only natural that we celebrated our new ouse and tree with rosemary salty dogs. Good gin, fresh grapefruits...

lindsay & boris's austin, texas save the date

Lauren Covington announcement austin custom kraft navy rustic save the date typography wedding wedding monogram wedding paper

Lindsay and Boris came to us wanting casual and rustic save the date for their Austin, Texas wedding. We used a kraft envelope and one of their adorable engagement photos taken by Mike Reed Photography. I also created the LKB wedding monogram to celebrate their new initials, and I have to admit it's one of my favorites. With lots of international guests and limited accommodations (Austin City Limits Music Festival and a UT football game was the same weekend), it was important to emphasize the urgency of booking the hotels. We made it fun, informative and let the guests know they...
