Feature Friday :: Oh Goodie Designs

I met Joanne of Oh Goodie Designs met at Dallas Market. I saw her walking down the aisle and thought to myself, "If this lady doesn't love my product, I better pack it up." Yes, I am guilty of buyer profiling...hey, I am usually right!

Joanne has some mad party planning skills and is a sucker for a treat! Check out her sweet skills...Y-U-M!

One of my all time fave things though...her happy hats...she will custom make them to fit any theme! Now, that is something to be happy about!

Fab News :: Missioni at Target

Ok, unless you have been hiding a rock, you know about Missioni launching a Fall line at Target. We are pretty excited around here and think is just F-A-B.

Aren't these perfect little flats for the Fall?

Can you picture me pedaling around the 'burbs on this stylish set of wheels?

And this is just about perfect for lunchtime at the HBDesigns studio!

The countdown is on! The line launches September 13.

Fab Color Inspiration

Even though most days are well over 100 degrees here at the HBDesigns studio, we are actually working on winter wedding invitations. This color scheme came to us via Kerry's Papery.  She has a bride planning a fabulous winter wedding and thought we could pitch in with the invitations. We found so many fab things on our inspiration hunt, we just had to share some of them with you!

Feature Friday :: Kitty Kennedy

As part of our master blog plan here at HBDesigns, we are setting out to feature some of the fabulous people we come across on our design adventures.  For our first feature, we bring you Kitty Kennedy of Posh Pencraft Rock Paper Studio in Los Angeles, California.  
Kitty and I go way back and have been partners in crime on many a project and many a party.  We are opposites to the core, but our friendship began on day one.  No matter what has been tossed our way, we have managed to always laugh! 
Kitty is a crazy talented gal.  Her modern and fresh take on calligraphy makes me smile.  She has seen HBDesigns grow from a little idea and some fabric to a full-service design studio.  She was in my wedding and was one of the first to show up when Lil' Miss was born. Kitty is always willing to drop everything to pitch in when a emergency arises that requires a trip to our favorite LA fabric haunt.  She is  a major part of our HBDesigns family and we are grateful to have her in our lives.

Fab Entertaining :: August

Like many of you, I am feeling a bit rushed. August crept up on me and in a few short weeks another summer will come to an end.

We create a ton of  summer fabritations (fabric + invitations) here at HBDesigns, especially in August. Seems everyone wants to celebrate one last warm evening before school starts and the air begins to chill.

Here's some summertime fabritations we love...

Cotton A7 Fabritation in 'Bright Poppy'

A7 Cotton selections in Aunt Dahlia, Blue Paisley, Bold Stripe

Cotton #10 Fabritation in 'Blue Cape'

A7 Astro Turf Fabritation

Like many of you, we also do a ton of entertaining here at HBDesigns.  There is something about inviting people into your home and cooking for them...must be the Italian in me! We love to spend lazy summer evenings poolside with friends.

Here are a few yummy treats we will be preparing before the end of the month (sweets and cocktails first, vegetables last, just the way we like it!)

Hope you enjoy the recipes and think of us next time you need invitations!

Fabrinery (fabric + stationery) Focus

We have been up to our ears in fabrinery (fabric + stationery) orders. For those of you who are new to The Pink Label, fabrinery is our signature note card line here at HBDesigns.  This is not your mama's stationery!
We work with a wide variety of fabrics (from cottons to silks, linens to velvets) to create one-of-a-kind custom stationery.

What makes HBDesigns different?  We did our research! We wanted to create something totally unique. There are others out there that use fabric, but they simply bond it to card stock paper. Each piece of fabrinery is made out of a heavy weight board. We cover it in a fabric of your choice, design the card and glue it all together. The best part...NO extra postage required!

Fabrinery is guaranteed to have your friends and family calling you upon receipt! They make fab hostess gifts, are perfect for a thankful bride and kids of all ages love all the fun patterns.
