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!

Safari Birthday Invitations

It was so wonderful to meet Jenny all the way from Australia. Her adorable little boy is turning the big 1.  She loved the Safari invitations featured on my blog and wondered if she could order them in time for her little man’s big birthday celebration. I was happy to offer her a design service to create the invitations that she could print herself in Australia. Here is how cute they came out:


It was also great to meet Ana from New York, who also loved my safari invitations. These safari invitations were inspired by all things travel – passports, boarding passes – and of course cute animals! Instead of a photo front, she requested animal illustrations. I think it came out adorable! It has been wonderful to get to meet from all over the globe and share my designs with them. Thank 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!

Sponge Bob Birthday!

My little diva daughter is a big Sponge Bob fan! In fact, her 6th birthday will be all Sponge Bob themed. I’m happy to share the adorable invitations and CD Labels inspired by the cartoon that I made for her big day.

These are available for sale as custom designed invitations if you are having a SpongeBob party theme too!
