baby announcement [matthew]

This announcement was such an especially exciting one for me to design for many reasons.  Matthew's mom is a friend of mine and you've probably seen her other invites throughout this blog.  I get so excited when she has a new design idea because has such a great sense of style when it comes to what she wants in an invite or announcement that it makes my job so easy.  I especially love the simplicity of this one and the softness that it brings. 

And with every custom order, there are the designs that didn't make the cut--but that I love just the same.  Its great for you because they are then offered to anyone!  I really love the boldness of the first one and the subtle texture of the last one (it would look great in girl colors too-- like soft pinks and blushes).

whimsical wedding invite

This was my first "theme" wedding invitation, and I must say I really loved it!  It helped narrow down some of my many ideas for the invite and it made me think of things that I wouldn't normally incorporate, like butterflies.  But here I think the butterflies are my favorite part of it! 

The bride has such a great handle on what she wanted and has the theme of "Midsummer Nights Dream." Once I saw she used terms like "sweet/romantic, whimsical/fantasy, and elegant,"  I knew it would be a fun one.  Here is the inspiration she sent me to give an idea of where she was coming from. I loved, loved everything about what she sent.  Natural elements are easily my favorite style, whether it's home decor or paper design--something about it just has an great appeal.

And here were two that didn't make the cut, but I still love them so much that I wanted to include them and share with y'all.
