I made baby shower invitations for Nancy's (my mom's friend) daughter, Meredith. She requested I use a vintage baby picture on the invite. Also, the baby's sex will not be known until he/she is born, so I used both blue and pink for the color palette. They were printed on a white linen paper with a matching envelope. I also made coordinating thank you cards, address labels, and favor tags with a pram. I added a scalloped edge to the favor tag to add to the vintage feel. Cute!

My husband and I FINALLY found a house that we love! We'll be making settlement on May 8th and taking the following week or so to slowly move all of our belongings into our new abode. To share our new address with our family and friends, I created a simple card announcing our move. I printed them on pale yellow linen cardstock with a matching yellow envelope because our new home is a sunny, cheery yellow color. These will be dropped at the post office on May 9th!
I teach with a lot of really great girls who have become good friends of mine. One of them is expecting a little boy in June. This will be her second baby so our group of girlfriends decided to throw a "sprinkle" for her by taking her out to dinner to celebrate! I printed her invitation on a beautiful pale blue shimmery cardstock and then mounted it on a rich chocolate brown textured cardstock. As a final touch, I punched out little umbrellas that spelled out, "OH BOY!"

I created a party invitation for my old student, Tessa. She and her siblings are throwing their mom a surprise 50th birthday party and wanted something simple yet classy for her. They also requested green be in the invite as it is their mom's favorite color. This design was printed on a metallic cardstock to give a hint of glam and sophistication to it's overall classic look and came complete with a matching green envelope to pick up the touches of green in the invitation. The pictures came out a little fuzzy...much better in person!
