"OMG it's gorgeous."
Carol’s celebration keepsake collages make the perfect gift when you want to give something very special and personal. She did a fabulous job for my daughter’s bridal shower and wedding, and I’ve given her collages to people celebrating their anniversaries and weddings when I want to give a particularly memorable and meaningful gift that you won’t find anywhere else. Try Carol Colman Creations — you won’t be sorry.
The wedding invitation keepsake was a wonderful gift. Both sets of parents thought it was lovely, and the bride and groom haven't stopped admiring it. My three daughters loved it too.
Carol Colman is doing an absolutely AMAZING job with these collages. I've given several as bar mitzvah and bat mitzvah gifts in the past year, and she just finished two more for me this week. And her wedding collages are spectacular. She even did one for my husband’s grandparents on their 70th wedding anniversary and one for my father's 80th birthday.
(She even did one for when my husband's grandparents celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary, and it is the only thing they took with them when they moved to a nursing home.)
Every one is gorgeous!!! Carol has a creative eye for color and detail. It is a joy to work with her and she delivers as promised, even on a tight schedule. Boys and girls love these keepsakes – so do their parents - and they are so unique. So if you need a special gift for someone, give Carol Colman Creations a call.
I have given six of Carol's beautiful framed collages as Bar Mitzvah gifts to my friends. Each frame was creative, unique, and designed with care. Everyone who has received them has called me to say it was their favorite gift. Their only dilemma was which room to hang it in! Some of them have even asked if I would make sure to get the same thing for their other children's upcoming mitzvahs so they don't feel left out.
Working with Carol was also a pleasure. She was quick to respond to any questions I had and flexible in making changes. She always kept me updated on the progress of the frames and shipping information. I can't wait to get invited somewhere!!
I have to tell you again, we absolutely LOVE the framed collage of our wedding invitation. It is hanging in our bedroom and I smile (and think of you) whenever I look at it.
Wow. It’s awesome.

After my son's Bar Mitzvah was over I wanted to find a way to preserve some of the memories, especially the invitation. I put my blood, sweat and tears in to the party and all the small details and Poof! - just like that it's over. I started searching the Internet for ways to preserve memories and I came across Carol Colman Creations. I emailed Carol and she responded quickly. Her work looked lovely and her price was very reasonable. I sent her the mementos I wanted preserved and she sent me an email with pictures of my different options. The whole process could not have been easier. The end result was beautiful and is proudly hanging in the den of my home. I would highly recommend Carol to all my friends and family and I will be contacting Carol again shortly to make a collage gift for my niece's Bat Mitzvah! Jennifer Berger-Diack

I was looking for a unique and personalized wedding gift for some friends when I came across Carol Colman's website. I immediately was excited when I saw the beautiful, one-of-a-kind collages--this was just what I was looking for! The wedding invitation is the center of the collage with intricate and lovely details added in all around. I had never put my trust in an Internet site before for designing a wedding gift--so I was wondering just how it would turn out. But Carol took the time to incorporate my ideas and visions (as well as incorporating her own wonderful artistic style). She sent me updates via email--including pictures.
I was very pleased with how the wedding collage turned out. Carol even mailed it directly to my friends when it was completed. My friends were so surprised and touched by the beauty and thoughtfulness of such a unique gift! I couldn't have asked for more!
OMG!!!!!! Wow!!!! Naomi just opened her gift and OMG!!!! It is so gorgeous, and so original, and so original, and so gorgeous, and OMG!!! She exclaimed, Oh MY GOSH it's GORGEOUS! This is the BEST GIFT of ALL!!! We are all just dying over it. It's amazing. I already emailed a quick photo of it to my invitation lady -she is going to be thrilled. I can hear the hammer upstairs - Jeff is already hanging it on her bedroom wall. What a creative, thoughtful, generous, personal, meaningful gift!!!! She will write you all a BIG HUGE THANK YOU!!!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxo times a zillion.

I finally met up with the bride and groom today and presented the final work to them. AMAZING! They loved it!
They said that they would have never thought of framing their invitations.
I said, that is why we give these as gifts! Thank you for your work.
Here is my the testimonial about the "magic” Carol does: I first saw Carol Colman’s work several years ago and I was instantly drawn to her because I knew she was following her creative passion to accomplish something that had not been done before. It only made sense that when I was looking for a unique one-of-a-kind gift that I would contact her. Carol and I sat together several times and each time we spoke she asked questions about just what I wanted to have her create. Her time and patience was ever present as she listened to what I wanted done. It is a skill, in and of itself, to listen and Carol uses that skill when she works with her clients as she designs their one-of-a-kind keepsake. When you meet with Carol and show her your photos/invitation, she offers her suggestions, ideas and a gorgeous assortment of embellishments, along with the most beautiful colors and paper options to design a work of art that will last a lifetime. I was thrilled with the keepsake that she created for me and I know you will be pleased with the customized creation she designs for you as well.

I just wanted to let you know how much we adore your work on the collage for Carly. It turned out so perfect. The timing of the arrival was perfect too. It was delivered to our house just minutes after we returned home from the service on Saturday and my dad who is the one who gave it to her was here to see her open it. It couldn't have timed out better. Thank you so much for creating such a beautiful keepsake. She will cherish it forever and have it as a reminder of her amazing and special day.
I met Carol one day by chance and thought of having her do something for my in-laws. I then remembered that I had never had our Ketubah framed and thought she would be the right person to do it just be looking at the samples of her work. Carol Colman was the perfect person to give our treasured Ketubah to. She immediately knew what she could do with it and also knew instinctively what style I wanted... not too elaborate and in keeping with the age of our Ketubah. I was right!! We love the framed Ketubah and will treasure it even more now.
For years, I wanted to find something interesting and fun that would allow my family to enjoy my children’s birth announcements and our wedding invitation without hiding them in a scrapbook. I’m glad I found Carol Colman to create beautiful framed ceremony keepsake with artful backgrounds that capture the full essence and personality of our announcements and wedding invitation. Each piece makes a statement and has its own unique personality and style. I've found that when friends and family visit they are drawn to these pictures, bringing back good memories and conversation. They not only make wonderful keepsakes but also offer themselves as a unique present to give to someone else. Sheila V.
I have been both a giver (several times!) and a recipient (my daughter actually) of Carol Colman’s invitation keepsakes. Each one is unique and complements the invitation in a very special way. The ceremony keepsake made by Carol Colman was one of the most meaningful and beautiful gifts my daughter received for her bat mitzvah. Originally I thought I would hang it in her bedroom. Once I saw it, we decided to hang it in our family room where we could all enjoy it. Needless to say, we get many compliments on it! We have given several framed invitation collages as bar and bat mitzvah gifts and have gotten rave reviews from each of the recipients and their families.
I got a call the night of the event from (the bat mitzvah girl and her mother). Even though they were exhausted, they couldn’t wait until the next morning to tell us how much they loved my gift. They said it was the best gift they received. “
My friends were "blown away" by (my daughter’s) framed bat mitzvah invitation keepsake. They couldn't believe every detail that was so perfectly chosen and placed. In fact they pointed out things that I hadn't noticed at first. Every time I look at it I see some detail that I hadn't noticed before. It is so beautiful and something that my daughter will treasure forever.”
What I most admire about Carol Colman’s creations is the way you extend the message beyond the original announcement/invitation ... your work is much more than merely a collage with a "center piece"... you seem to read the invitations and use a palette of color and texture to extend the personal celebration carrying the message well beyond the beautifully framed keepsake. The quality and interpretation of your work is so wonderful and beautiful … I want everyone I know to have a piece of their story interpreted by Carol Colman.”
Your beautiful framed work of art (wedding invitation and photograph of the couple) was on display for the rehearsal dinner and the reception. I know the bride and groom loved it. I have a feeling that this keepsake will be especially poignant for the bride, since the groom is about to be shipped off to Iraq.”
The (framed invitation) keepsakes arrived today, and they are beautiful! They are fantastic!
We love that each is so different (yet so similar). Each girl will truly feel unique, and will have her own personal keepsake for the day. Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into each one.
The use of "favorite colors" and the personalization with each girl's name is just perfect. Thanks so much again!
It was a pleasure to work with Carol to create such special, one-of-a-kind gifts for a friend's wedding and so many Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. She made one for our own son, and we all love it.
Carol is eager to capture the personalities of the reipients in her work through color schemes, materials choices, and special embellishments, particularly the ones she handcrafts. Her pieces are so creative and uinique, and they will be cherished for a lifetime.
