hanging paper cranes

Inspired by the many photos I’ve seen of hanging paper cranes / origami crane mobiles in weddings as decor and ceremony backdrops, I thought I’d come up with an invitation set to go with the motif. There are three color schemes so far: purple, pewter, and white but I can always customize them to suit your wedding colors too. 🙂 Some of the elements up close:

Free Printable Tandem Bike Fingerprint Poster

Surprise! I have a new free printable for you, dear Poptastic friends– a fingerprint poster featuring a darling tandem bike graphic and a banner to hold your names. This freebie took me all of 30 minutes to make, thanks to – a pretty cool source of free images and graphics that you can virtually use anywhere as long as they’re credited. The tandem bike was taken from this file, I just tweaked the colors to make it more wedding-appropriate, and the banner + heart were taken from this file. The playful script font I used is called Larou. It’s just there for placement though, the banner is actually blank so you can hand-write your names yourself.
