little lady invite goes 3-d

i recently merged 2 invitation ideas into 1. i took the idea of my ladybug invitation i did last year and my little lady invitation and created this sweet little lady 3-d invitation.  each invitation was embellished with a medium sized wooden painted ladybug.

it’s a great compromise for those that don’t want to spend too much on invitations, but still want that little touch of unique.

interested in a special order of these 3d little lady invitations?  email me for more info.

ladybug, ladybug, come out and play

the internet and online world is extremely big, yet sometimes can feel so small all at the same time.

dana found me on google while searching for ladybug invitations for her daughter’s 1st birthday & baby naming party. she emailed me, we spoke on the phone and we soon discover that we live only several blocks away from one another. how fortuitous is that, considering i had just moved into my new place?

we immediately started exchanging emails and phone conversations. dana told me she wanted to do a classy, yet playful, ladybug invitation for her daughter, sasha’s 1st birthday, in december and so, i translated her words into this invitation design…

each invitation is embellished with a playful red and black polka dot ribbon, along with 3 cute tiny little wooden painted ladybugs.  i find it almost impossible to look at this invitation without squealing in delight.

normally, ladybugs are related to garden parties for the spring or summer months, so we decided to keep any trace of green grass or gingham print tablecloth as far away as possible.  Instead use the colors of a ladybug, red, black and white, to help set the theme and tone of the party.

dana ask that i also do signs and goodie bag labels for the party, so be sure to come back later in december to see how the whole set turns out.

hey lady…

here is another custom baby shower invitation i recently did. it’s a slight twist to the shower flowers design i did back in march.

i decided to go with more primary colors to suit the style of the mama-to-be a little better.

i also incorporated her favorite bug, a ladybug, which fit real nicely with the wording on the invitation.

i’m really lovin’ this cute new little ladybug so it may appear on other stationery goods and possibly on a simplewear onesie.  so be on the look out…
