Caleb's 3rd Birthday [Handmade Card]

My cousin, Kristin, and her husband Phil, had a baby boy 3 years ago. This little boy is the most adorable thing that you have ever seen and he and his family have been through to much! Caleb recently had a heart transplant. In his first 3 years of life, Caleb and his family have had to endure things that most of us can't even imagine! From countless doctor visits and testing, to being transported by medial helicopter to being put on the waiting list for a heart transplant to then receiving one - Caleb, Kristin and Phil have handled it in the most amazing way! I can't tell you how proud of them I am and how happy I am that my little cousin is now finding out what it truly means to be a kid!
His 3rd birthday party was held in August. It was a huge party! Unfortunately, my husband and I had already made plans months before to be in Santa Barbara celebrating our anniversary but my mom was able to go and said it was amazing! We both created this card for her to take to Caleb. This birthday card was given to him along with a "telegram" that we created telling him and his parents that he would be receiving a very special and vintage train set from our family. The whole party had a cowboy theme to it and was held at the fair grounds in a barn. There was face painting, a petting zoo, a huge multiple tired cowboy cake, and so much more!

Lauren | Feminine Kitchen Themed Shower

For Lauren's bridal shower design, we were asked to incorporate kitchen accessories and pink and white damask!  Loved the girly touch to these designs!  We also designed coordinating recipe cards for the guests to fill out and bring with them as well as favor tags! The design was printed on white metallic paper (as well as the other accessories) layered on black metallic cardstock, and enclosed in a coordinating metallic envelope!

A&E Photobooth | Gift Certificate Design

I had the honor of designing for Eva and Anthony last year and they have since turned into fellow wedding vendors as well by starting their own photo booth company called A&E Photobooth!  They contacted me to design a gift certificate for one of the bridal shows along with a 3 piece candy buffet for the guests visiting their booth in their company colors of black and red. We wish both of them tons of success in this new business venture and highly recommend them if you are planning an event!

Brea + Byron | "Mustache Bash" Couple's Shower

Here is part 2 of Brea and Byron's baby shower designs!  For their couple's shower, they wanted "Mustache Bash" themed invitations incorporating a mustache and bow tie!  We were dying to design using this theme so we were thrilled when they contact us!  A chalkboard texture and chevron stripes were added into the design along with a black and white newspaper print pattern that is actually the same fabric that will be in Baby Young's nursery!  Brea's a teacher and wanted books for her little one so a book insert was also included in this design.  Love this idea!
