Must Have San Diego Tote

There is no better way to show your pride for the city you love than with a fabulous tote! Seriously though, this San Diego tote by Mixt Studio really is the most amazing bag. It’s made from a fabric-like paper that is exceptionally strong, it’s lightweight, water resistant, won’t tear and can be tossed in the washer. You’re still not sold? Measuring 25″x18″x6″ this bag can hold it all and go anywhere with you – the beach, the grocery store, your kids soccer game. The San Diego tote is also reversible with a beach-inspired “Strand Stripe” pattern on the inside.

Beach Wedding Invitations

Seaside_Wedding_Invitation

Marlo and Adam were looking for clean and simple beach inspired wedding invitations for their big day in the Bahamas. The letterpress Breakers design from Bella Figura was the perfect fit! Wanting to keep things understated, we used relaxed fonts and a pale color palette of taupe and light blue with a pop of papaya edge paint. The kraft pocketfold tied it all together and kept their enclosure cards in place.
