The Invitation is in the Bag



This adorable and clever invitation is as cute as it looks. Made to look like a purse this card is made with a string of pearls (will it looks like pearls), a rhinestone button, and a metallic sheen. The best part is that it fits in a normal sized envelope (no additional postage). These purses can be made in any color with one of four metallic accents. These adorable invitations are only $1 each for 25 or more or $1.25 for orders less than 25.

Sophisticate Mommy



This is a baby shower invitation that is for the sophisticate Mommy. Totally cute and posh Mommy shows off her growing tummy while sill looking stylish. If you know an expecting mom like this than this is the perfect baby shower invitation for her. The metallic crimped paper can be changed to one of four colors and the monk's dress, hat, hand bag, and shoes can all be changed in color as well. The printing on the inside is embossed (3D). These cards are $1 each for 25 or more and $1.25 for any order under 25 cards.

Simple but Adorable Announcement



This announcement can be changed up in a thousand different ways (color, ribbon, edged cutting). The one shown here is hand written and embossed (3D) for a casual look. If you are looking for a formal look it can be printed. If you provide the pictures already printed for me these cute announcements cost only $.75 each or $1 each if you want me to have them professionally printed. Orders smaller than 100 are applicable to a small fee.

Thank you notes from the Sea


These thank you notes were made for the same couple that I made the beach themed wedding invitations for. I used a recycled card stock for the card and put sand (yes real sand) and sea shells (yes, real sea shells) on them. They were finished off with a little raffia accent and a gold embossed Thank You.

Baby announcements





These are two of my most popular baby announcements. The baby buggy is made with a light weight pink vellum on top of a heavy weight cream linen paper. The wheels have pink eyelets and there is cream colored lace on the hood of the buggy. The buggy announcements are great for holding a wallet size picture and a small card announcing your new arrival. The other announcement is a little more traditional. I used the same to papers as I did for the buggy, but for this one I put the print on the vellum and tied it together with a silk ribbon reading "It's a girl!".

Baby shower invitations ~ ladybug theme


I made these invitations for a ladybug teamed shower kit I put together. One side says "Please Come" and has a ladybug whose wings are made with punched red vellum. The other side has the invitation.

Beach Wedding Invitations




These are some wedding invitations I made recently for a couple getting married on the beach. There is a picture of the beach printed in a sepia tone on a light wieght vellum which is attached with raffia to a heavy weight (recycled, very important to the Bride) paper which has sand in it. The reply card is also printed on the "sand" paper, it is the outline around the text its embossed (3D texture). In the lower left hand corner is a embossed gold shell, which matches their wedding cake.
