Safari Birthday Invitation


Here’s an extra special birthday invitation designed for an extra special little boy celebrating the big 3!

When Suzanne told me that her son’s birthday party involved animals, I thought a Safari theme would be ideal! In creating the look I was inspired by all things travel – passports, boarding passes – and of course cute animals!



Everything from the design of the invitation and illustrations to the writing was truly custom-created for the big event. 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! 



Does this sound like a fun party? I think the side of the invitation devoted to a photo of the little explorer will remain on display long after the party has ended! Thank you Suzanne!

Erika’s CD Favor


  I was so excited when Erika told me that she was incorporating a CD as part of her Welcome Bags for her destination wedding.  It’s a personalized memorable gift that can be enjoyed many times over!

  I created this custom designed label with their monogram & wedding date, following the look of her Save the Date cards that I designed!  This favor is a very special way to commemorate the happy occasion. Congratulations Erika & Brian!

Cailin’s First Birthday Invitation

When Carrie asked me to design Birthday invitations for Cailin’s first birthday, I was super excited….and knew it had to be extra special!

When we first discussed themes, I thought what better for a summer birthday than a Luau theme!

In creating the look I was inspired by my trip to Maui – the gorgeous flowers that were everywhere as well as the whole surf vibe I observed on the beaches. I knew her invitation had to be a blend of fresh modern tropical meets sophistication for this beautiful baby girl.


I took full advantage of the bright fresh color scheme and then also added a bold graphic font to pull in the beach feel. It’s so fun & fresh. It was printed on pure white semi gloss cardstock with a glossy coating on the photo side. I think the end result is absolutely delightful! (– and did I mention the quick turnaround? This was designed, sent to the press, and arrived on Carrie’s front door in 4 days total!)





Does this luau sound like blast? The side of the invitation devoted to a photo of the little hula girl will remain on my refrigerator long after the party has ended! Isn’t she a doll?



Thank you so much Carrie for the opportunity and incredible inspiration – and Happy Birthday to Cailin!
