sweet birthday invitation

my latest birthday invitation. for the youngest girl in an all boy family. her mother described her as sweet and precious. knowing how sweet and precious my girls are to me, i ran with it and went with a simple text, ultra sweet fabric ruffles and precious pink.
 a double toile ruffle was sewn to each invitation.
each invitation was backed with kraft cardstock, and put inside a kraft envelope lined with matching toile liner. sweet indeed.

nautical birth announcement

i recently finished this little nautical announcement. perfect for a little boy.
each came tied like a package with striped twine, and sealed in a navy envelope with ticking striped fabric tape.
simply done with line drawn seaweed, and a banner announcing the baby's name, i love how the two come together with the anchor to form a crest.

twins!

it's done! a birth announcement for twins.
from this inspiration (#2)... came this announcement.


my hand drawn twign design and hand lettering are letterpress printed on ultra luscious crane lettra paper. 



the front cover has tiny fabric leaves in cotton prints, canvas and linen applied to each announcement.


 the front, inside and back flap of each envelope are hand painted with celadon leaves. 

inside, a photo of each delicious little baby is framed with twigs.





each announcement is folded up, and wrapped with dip dyed silk ribbon, and tied with a simple knot. 



the envelopes are lined with warm gray to compliment the soft printed text.
