I’m so excited for Nicole.  She’s taken that big leap between moving on from her day job to opening her invitation design company full time.  I first met Nicole last year when they invited me to document their gorgeous Woodinville wedding (see her gorgeous mug here!).  Of course, she had top notch invite and program design-she had designed them herself.  We actually went to the Art Institute together, but never crossed paths, although I recognized some of her guests at the wedding as old classmates.  Actually, they recognized me… and after 7 years I couldn’t believe how quickly they picked me out!  Nicole has been designing ever since those old school days, but still loved her job as a photo director at Macy’s, and she was torn between both careers.  She finally decided to take the leap, and she is making a splash.  Check out this gorgeous design of hers, I love the shade of green 😉



Love how she incorporated her client’s personal proposal story into the design of this one:

And for her own, she even included little stickers for guests to choose from to put on their calendars to mark the date:

Take a look around at her site- and if you’re in the industry, you’ll be seeing a lot of her in the next few months as she makes the rounds and introduces herself at all the hip happy hours!  Stay tuned for her blog too, she’s itching to write!!  Luck Nicole!!  www.nmpaperdesign.com
