Turtle Baby Shower Invitations

My sister-in-law is doing her biology thesis on turtles, so we thought it would be cute to incorporate them into her baby shower invites. I made two parents and a baby turtle with a little pink bow. The theme is "the best things in life are worth waiting for" and I used nice springy colors of light pink and green.

Sock Hop Birthday Invitations

I was contacted by a family friend to create a Sock Hop Themed invitation set for her husband's 70th birthday. She sent out the save-the-dates with their Christmas Cards last winter and then followed up with the invitation and RSVP card. The couple are big dancers, so I found this great graphic and paired it with records, colors and fonts from the 50's.

Real Couples: Danielle & Justin's Cape Cod Wedding

Danielle and Justin had their wedding on Cape Cod, MA last October and I received some great pictures from their photographer, Dan Cutrona Photograph. I created menus, table numbers and placecards that matched their invitation set. I also used one of Dan's photos to create thank you cards for the couple.

Danielle & Justin were my first couple to do embosssed pocketfolds, which came out stunning.Click here to see their invitations.

Baby Boy Shower Invitations

I modified these shower invitations from a pink girl theme to be a blue boy theme. Simple and classy for the mom that doesn't want a cutesy shower invite!

Hydrangea Bridal Shower Invite

I've had these invitations sitting on my desk for a week and every time I look at them, I am happy because I feel like spring is almost here! We used light, medium and dark purples and a beautiful hydrangea graphic to tie into the shower's theme.

Amy's Baby Shower

My sister-in-law is due with her first baby next month and I helped do all the stationery for the event. I tested out my new AccuCut machine by doing custom designed invitations with the baby onsie die cut. I incorporated the design of the fabric that Amy is using in the nursery. I also made the favors (homemade muffin mixes) and customized them with "Bun in the Oven" tags and coordinating ribbons. Lastly, I also did matching thank you notes for the mom-to-be (which I neglected to photograph!).

Christmas Cards

I admit to being a bad blogger...I get on a kick for a while, then poof, I forget. One business resolution of mine is to be a better at blogging, twitter and facebook.

I finally took some shots of our Christmas cards. I did a batch that went to my clients from 2009 and then just changed the wording for our personal family Christmas Cards. Printed on a lovely white shimmer cardstock.
