sneak peek preview time

new invite 1
new invite 2
new invite 3

These are three of the new styles that I will offer as part of KenzieKate's 2008 collection come the first of February (you're the first to see them!), but I need help naming them! I'm stuck. I've named the other new ones, but the jury is still out on these three. I name each of my invites after a city that I feel has a similar spirit, and while I've been places, I'm not a well traveled girl. I need your help! I'd be really appreciative of any suggestions.

Already taken are: Paris, Manhattan, Stockholm, Vienna, Montreal, Charlotte, Havana, Seville, Mumbai, Burlington, Seattle, Philadelphia, Aberdeen, Hanalei, Aspen, Cozumel, Palm Springs, and Savannah.

** UPDATE: Several people have written me, telling me that my French is off on the reply card for the first invite set. Not to worry! The French is correct on the real thing, this image was just taken from an earlier prototype. Thanks though!

Something about the third one reminds me of Cape Town- i think it's the vibrant colors and the printed pattern.

Third: Fiesole

Jane E. on 11:16 AM

1. Delta, Montgomery, New Orleans, Atlanta
2. Hartford, Lowell, Middlebury, Nutley (besides making me think of the Middle East, this design made me think of vintage book linings in a library)
3. Memphis, Louisville, Austin, Springfield.

molly on 11:29 AM

Kate on 1:14 PM

Here are my suggestions:

1. Providence (CT)
2. Marrakesh (Morocco)
3. Copenhagen (Denmark)

diana on 1:18 PM

How about "Provence" for #1?

Katie on 1:18 PM

#2 Reminds me of India... Jaisalmer in particular. It's this beautiful fortified city in the middle of the Thar Desert; lots of temples and such nearby, but a bit less glitz than the rest of the Indian spots I visited.

Anonymous on 2:55 PM

I would say the second one reminds me of Tunis (capital of Tunisia)- Arabic and Mediteranean influences or the city of Granada (city in Spain).

The last one with the birds reminds me of the Canary Islands (Spain) off the coast of west Africa. The city name (capital) would be Tenerife.

Kat on 2:55 PM

The 3rd one reminds me of Hamilton Bermuda!

Christine Marie Altimore-Nash on 3:10 PM

1. Cannes (France)
2. Jakarta (Indonesia)
3. Palermo (Sicily)

Best of luck, these designs are truly inspirational!

Darci on 6:06 PM

Gorgeous!!! What about Marseille for the first one?

Naneenya on 6:07 PM

#1 - Havana
#2 - Istanbul
#3 - Heidelberg

Anonymous on 6:27 PM

Looks great -- I think you may want to reconsider the RSVP text... the traditional French spelling is "Repondez S'il Vous Plait."

Sarah on 6:36 PM

Beautiful work as always. You are one talented girl!

already suggested but good:

#1 - Marseille
#2 - Granada or Marrakesh
#3 - Helsinki

best of luck with the new designs!

I only have a name for two of them:
#3 (the blue & orange one) - Avalon, after the little city on the island of Catalina (off the cost of Southern California). The invitation reminds me of the classic terracota tiles that used to be made on the island.
#1 (the green & white one) - I have several - mainly neighborhoods in London. Kensington, Mayfair, Brompton, or Chelsea).

Jenaholic on 11:08 PM

The first one reminds me of Tallahassee, FL

Megan on 3:35 AM

1. Charlotte
2. Mumbai
3. Copenhagen

Shabby Cottage Boutique on 8:21 AM

Thank you for cone project.I love making heirloom vintage paper keepsakes too! I embellish with NE vintage pretties!

Nicole on 9:16 AM

Love the new invitations. The colors are beautiful and I hope that I get to work with them this year through some of my brides.
:-) Stunning.

Krista on 10:22 AM

1. Someone said Charleston for the first one. I live in Charleston and those conjur no image of Charleston for me. However, a Charleston theme one would be beautiful. Something very vintage and old South. I still need wedding invitations! :)

2. I agree with most posters about number 2. They gave perfect ideas for Indian, Morrocan and other middle eastern cities. However, I thought the posters idea of vintage book linings was brilliant and you should consider a beautiful north eastern college town, like Hartford.

3. The first thing that came to mind was the country of Bali, but I know you want cities. I also love the idea of Heidelberg or Copenhagen. It vaguely reminds me of summers in Germany.

They are all beautiful and original, though.

Meghan B. on 10:54 AM

The third one reminds me of Scandinavia, so I'm going to go with something in that region. Maybe Oslo?

Anonymous on 4:25 PM

the third one is very scandanavian--I like Malmo, Sweden

bridget on 4:49 PM

The first one reminds me of jakarta.
As for the second i was i also thinking Jaisalmer, but Udiapur (sp??) is home to the amazing lake palace so that would be be fun too.
Third, maybe oslo?

Jama on 6:07 PM

The third one is Vienna, because it reminds be of all the beautiful jugendstijl (Art Nouveau) artwork/architecture that adorns the city. The art movement was all about organic lines and elements.

They're beautiful, by the way.

Sherry on 7:59 PM

The second one is definitely reminiscent of a city in the Rajasthan region of India. Either Jaipur, Udaipur, or Jaisalmer.

Anonymous on 9:27 PM

(1) Charleston
(2) Marrakesh
(3) Helsinki

AIR on 9:32 PM
