Love. That’s what this adoption announcement was all about. ‘Nuff said.

Quin’s Baby Shower

Quin’s Baby Shower

Oh baby! We loved putting together this sweet little lamb baby shower invitation with white satin ribbon, a less common tea-length size and a pale blue printed layer… the end result was perfect for the bouncing baby boy and mama-to-be.  

Adelyn’s 1st Birthday

Adelyn’s 1st Birthday

The baby daughter of a photographer friend of mine turned one, and they gave me the privilege of working on her birthday party invitations. This simple 5×7 card incorporated a photo of Adelyn wearing a bright pink tutu, sitting next to a chalkboard with the […]

Gender Reveal Party

Gender Reveal Party

Heather and Matt got married at the Dayton Art Institute in November 2010 and are expecting their first bundle of joy. They decided to find out the sex of the baby at a “Gender Reveal Party” that included all of their closest friends and family […]

Ginger’s Baby Shower

Ginger’s Baby Shower

There are two things I love most about this baby shower invitation: the cool pink and brown polka dot ribbon from Midori, and the adorable font. Those two elements, combined with a metallic pink bottom layer and white micah printed invitation piece make this a […]

Baby Gavin

Baby Gavin

Welcome to the world, Baby Gavin! What a sweet surprise to have one of my brides from a few years ago wander into the store…8 months pregnant! A few weeks later, she and her husband welcomed a beautiful baby boy. For his birth announcement we […]

Mary Colleen Birth Announcement

Mary Colleen Birth Announcement

To announce Mary’s post-Valentine’s Day arrival her parents wanted to include a 4×6 photo with the announcement so family and friends could have a momento to keep, so we chose a portable pocket that was large enough to accommodate a full-size photo mounted onto a […]

Land and Sea birthday

Land and Sea birthday

Mason and Ryan are best friends with birthdays four days apart, and they both happen to love the same two things: dinosaurs and sharks. To compromise, we decided a “Land and Sea” theme would be fun, and created an invitation with a reptile texture wrap, […]

Grace’s First Communion

Grace’s First Communion

Grace is one of three lovely sisters for whom I’ve had the pleasure of creating some pretty special announcements and invitations, ranging from birth announcements to First Communion invitations. We took a more traditional feminine approach with this particular invitation, using the palest of pinks […]

Andrew’s 1st Birthday

Andrew’s 1st Birthday

I love this hippo. This was the very first thing I ever attempted to draw in Illustrator and I can’t tell you how proud I am of the way he turned out (not bad for being self-taught in CS!) Andrew’s mom came to us looking […]

Truman’s Puppy Party

Truman’s Puppy Party

Truman is the adorable son of one of my favorite former employees, and I have to say that Molly throws the best kids’ birthday parties I have ever seen. She spares no detail, and makes everything come together like something out of a magazine (or […]

Kathryn’s 1st Birthday

Kathryn’s 1st Birthday

Sweet things come in small packages, and this lovely lollipop of an invitation was the perfect way to invite close family and friends to Kathryn’s first birthday party. Bubblegum pink and lime green were cheerful colors to use for a first birthday and the square […]

Bode Jackson

Bode Jackson

This little guy has kept me company on the shop’s “wall of fame” ever since he arrived in November 2007- it’s hard to believe he’s turning five this year! This announcement includes a 3.5×5 z-card with three panels, metallic white printed cards, and a satin […]

Erin Elizabeth

Erin Elizabeth

Erin was welcomed into the world by her big sister, Lena whose birth announcements I did while I was still at Ink back in 2004. We kept a similar floral style, using Anna Griffin patterned paper, this time in a textured blush pink. The ribbon […]

Ryan’s 1st Birthday

Ryan’s 1st Birthday

This was a very special invitation because it was for my son’s first birthday party. Since Ryan is such a little monkey, and always getting into everything, I decided a Safari theme would be fun to work with. I love the bright orange paired with […]

Safari Birthday Table Tents

Safari Birthday Table Tents

I went overboard on Ryan’s first birthday, and I’ll be the first to admit it. I thought it would be fun to have table cards for the food and make them coordinate with the party invitations. I kept with the color scheme of orange, yellow […]
