Watercolor & Calligraphy

I thought I would share some of the watercolor and calligraphy work I've been experimenting with lately. I love digital design, but sometimes it's fun to roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty getting back to basics! Follow me on Instagram to see more updates, designingd is my handle.





Graduation Invitation

Everyone knows I love a red carpet Old Hollywood Glam theme! That's why I'm so excited to share this fabulous invitation to a graduation party for Mycah. Her mom contacted me from Michigan to create this wonderful invitation to set the tone for the big celebration. Congratulations on your graduation and thanks again for using my design services!



85th Birthday Invitation

Wow it has been way too long since I posted! I'm happy to share a very fun illustrated birthday invitation for a dear friend's grandma's big birthday! Everything was designed custom around her grandma's fun style - from the rainbow sneakers to the lipstick in hand. Thanks Allison for trusting me to deliver a fun caricature of your sweet grandma!

New Baby, New Year Card!


Suzanne has a beautiful family and I was honored to get to design her Holiday card again this year! Since her new baby was born in December it made for a perfect theme of Happy New Year – New Baby! I hope it will be a beautiful keepsake for her family for years to come. It was printed on premium matte cardstock, which gave it a luxurious vintage feel.
Baby Scarlett is the best early Christmas gift they could have ever asked for! Thanks Suzanne for the opportunity to design this card for you!

Birthday Invitations


I'm thrilled to show you two party invitations that were a delight to create!
  I was so happy when I was contacted by Charkia to design her daughter's first birthday invitation using a carnival theme. I just adore the look of vintage circus posters and the fun bright colors blissfully whimsical. It was printed on pure white semi gloss cardstock with a glossy coating on the photo side. I think the end result is absolutely adorable, and will serve as a keepsake from the special day.

Have you heard of Elegant 18 birthdays? I absolutely love the theme that Raquel is planning for her daughter Desiree (love that we share the same first name!) It's a red-carpet premier party! I had a lot of fun with wording on this custom design. You can't tell from this photo, but she opted to have it printed on pearlized glitter card stock, which adds another layer of star-studded quality to set the stage for the big event. Thank you Raquel and Happy Birthday Desiree!

Earlier this fall I spent a wonderful afternoon with an adorable family. It was such a joy to photograph them again this year. Here are some of my favorites from our session.
A big Thanks to Julie & Mark for inviting me to capture your special family moments!
