Rustic charm

Fall is here with all the rustic charm we could wish for!

Autumn is easily my favorite time of the year. I love the gorgeous foliage display, crispness in the air, and the smell of baked apple pies...

My glamorous Fall inspired wedding board is fresh and young! Enjoy!

I would like to thank all my fellow Etsy sellers featured here for their participation!

Ah Weddings... an affair to remember... beautiful, distinctively unique, stylish...

My name is Sylvia, a freelance graphic designer and owner of C'est la Vie! Design Studio, specializing in wedding stationery. 

A European by birth and at heart, a lover of fine food and strong Italian expressos, I studied art and archaeology ... and I love my job! I am obsessed with paper, calligraphy, colors, design in general, the good one. I am forever in search of inspiration, when I am playing with my two daughters, walking in the nature or browsing through stores. 

I sell my creations through my Etsy stores A la Carte Paperie {wedding stationery} and Eviva! Prints {wedding poster and more}.

Etsy gave me the idea to start this blog as I encountered many talented artists, creators like me, mostly women like me, mothers like me...

Each week I will post {at least I try} an inspiration board featuring one of my wedding card alongside inspirational items from other Etsy sellers.
Also, I would be happy to feature real weddings, like the ones I created the invitations for, and others.
I hope that future brides {and grooms!} can be inspired by these treasures...
For my first "Etspiration Board" I have selected my newest chalkboard inspired wedding invitations card "The Morgan". These chalkboard-style cards are my best sellers and I love creating new ones. Enjoy!

I would like to thank all my fellow Etsy sellers featured here for their participation!
