It's a girl!

My family welcomed a new baby this summer -- a little four-legged girl! Here are the puppy announcements that I created and sent out with our Christmas cards. Better late than never! It's fun to see how much she's changed since we brought her home. :)

These are a great size card and give lots of room for photos -- I've gotten so many messages from friends and family about how much they have loved Gracie's announcements!

My long-time client, Jen, asked me to create some invitations for a party for her brother. He starts boot camp in January so this is a great way to get all of his family and friends together before the holidays are upon us.

Here's what I came up with for her.

Wine Bottle Invitations

Tiffany contacted me to design some invitations for her upcoming ladies' night out -- at a winery! I came up with these wine bottle shaped invitations, putting all of the event information on the label. We attached some circle tags made from cork paper around the neck with raffia. These are so much fun and would be wonderful for a birthday, rehearsal dinner, or bridal shower invitation.

It opens up to reveal the triple-layered invitation of gold leaf, pewter, and off white metallic card stocks with rhinestone accents in each corner.

Pennant table numbers

I created these pennant table numbers for the Modern Yellow & Blue wedding and they came out great! These incorporate the bold yellow flower graphic as well as a modern circle with the table number in blue. These pennants would go great at a pool side wedding reception, for showers -- wouldn't they look adorable as golf tee markers?-- as well as signs at some of the kids' parties!

Best of all, they can be completely customized in your event colors!
