What made you become a Stationary Designer?

All of my life I have had a love for paper and all things beautiful!  After a successful career in the Pharmaceutical industry and upon having my two boys, the opportunity to design and create exquisite stationery finally became a reality!  While raising my boys I started Creative Expressions and it has blossomed into the luxury design studio it is today!

How long have you been in business?

I have been in business since January 2004, so it has been 12 years!!  How time flies!

Do you have a specific style or theme?

My style has evolved over the years based upon my clientele.  However, I do specialize in the use of fine papers and fabrics imported from all over the world (Thailand, India, Tibet, Italy etc.)  My style incorporates these fine papers, fabrics, as well as other unique materials into the works of art that each hand crafted invitation becomes.

What are your favourite styles?

My favourite styles are the invitations incorporating suede and velvet, textured or smooth and on the other end of the spectrum, I also love the designs incorporating real wood.  Both of these styles, although very different exude a warmth and luxury that is unique and exquisite.

What are the biggest mistakes couples make when choosing their wedding Stationary?

The biggest mistake couples make when choosing their wedding stationery would be trying to incorporate too many ideas and or paper types into one design.  Many brides and grooms come with many inspirations they have seen online and wish to incorporate it all.  It is very important to remember that each invitation design should have one main focal point.  For example, if we are designing an invitation with a lovely laser cut design then we should focus on that feature, letterpress is beautiful on its own,  etc.

What do you think distinguishes your work from others?

I think that our unique collections of imported papers, our fine print processes, our impeccable attention to detail and exemplary customer service distinguishes our work from others.

What advise can you give to the 2018 Brides & Grooms?

The best advice I can give to 2018 brides and grooms is to search online for inspiration, there are so many beautiful images to view and pull inspiration from.  Colours, textures, designs…. let your creative juices flow, skies the limit!   If you come prepared with inspiration images this helps us get to know you and your style quickly and will help guide us in the design process to help make suggestions and capture your vision to make it a reality.

What are the stationary trends for 2018?

Hand lettering and calligraphy is top of the list!  Laser cut is still very popular this year and the use of specialty print methods such as letterpress and foil stamping are also continuing to take center stage.  Then of course, wood has been extremely popular for rustic and vineyard weddings!  My clients love to step outside the box and I am very excited to push the limits with them again in 2018!
