Brynn's Baptism Invitation


It was such a pleasure to create this beautiful invitation for Carrie to Brynn’s Baptism. My goal was to create a design that was soft & elegant – mixing classical charm with modern diva style.  The invitation is 2-sided, featuring Brynn’s gorgeous photo, monogram and date of the special event on one side - and the details on the other.  The shimmer cardstock selection celebrates all things girly! I am very happy with how this gorgeous invitation came out!


Congratulations to the proud parents, Carrie & Dennis! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to create this Baptism Invitation as a momento of your special day!

CD Favor - Yo Gabba Gabba


Happy second birthday to Kennedy! This little Diva loves Yo Gabba Gabba, and I was thrilled when her stylish mom Celeste asked me to design her party favor CD label.

On the popular tv show Yo Gabba Gabba, they feature kids dancing and a voiceover says “My name is ____. I like to dance!” and the child's name pops up in a futuristic digital typeface.  I thought this concept would translate perfectly into a CD favor!

I was happy to create this scene of Kennedy dancing with her favorite TV show characters. It is so adorable and is sure to be enjoyed by her friends many times over! Happy Birthday dancing diva!

Safari Birthday Invitation


It was such a delight to meet Jennifer. 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 boy’s big birthday celebration. I am happy to say that it was designed, printed and arrived at her house all in just one week.

These safari invitations were inspired by all things travel – passports, boarding passes – and of course cute animals! It was printed on pure white semi gloss cardstock with a glossy coating on the side that featured the little cutie pie’s photo. I think the end result is absolutely adorable, and will remain on display long after the party has ended! Thank you Jennifer!

Birthday Invitations


It’s Birthday Season in my house! I had so much fun designing invitations for my little one’s birthdays this year.

Gabi liked the idea of a Barbie inspired party theme, but I decided to take it one step further and make her the Barbie character! I drew a fun caricature of her and placed it into a pink sequins filled setting – perfect for my little diva!


Jake wanted an animal theme, so I made him Safari ticket inspired invitations. I used the bookmark size format to resemble a ticket. This is great for a child's birthday party and this format is actually very affordable printing (I charge $60 for 50 bookmark size invitations.) I think it came out really fun & cute!


What themes are you looking into for your little one’s parties? Let me know if I can help with invitations to set your tone.

Brynn's Birth Announcement


It was such an honor to be able to create a beautiful birth announcement for Carrie’s new arrival. I am very proud of how this came out – so elegant and sophisticated with a pop of fresh color!



I was thrilled when Carrie mentioned that she was thinking of a Green & Purple color scheme – it’s so invigorating and fun for spring! Plus it also ties in perfectly with the family’s Irish heritage, which is a wonderful feature for a keepsake like a birth announcement.

The announcement is 2-sided, which allows us to showcase more of her adorable photos! It was printed on pearlized cardstock with a high-shine gloss coating added to the photo side – I just adore the level of style and glamorous layers of shine & shimmer the paper choice added to the elegant design.

Congratulations to the proud parents, Carrie & Dennis! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to create her Birth Announcement! It is sure to become a wonderful keepsake.
