I’ve been so busy with my other freelance work, I haven’t really done too many custom invitations this past year. So when Davis’ first birthday came around, I took full advantage and created something really fun and what I hope is memorable. I knew I wanted to tie in his announcements to the party theme, so I decided on a First Trip Around the Sun theme.
I know that Davis may not remember any of the little details included in his party, much less the party itself, but when he’s older and looks back on photos, I hope he’ll see how special it was and how loved he was by everyone.
Here is an animated GIF so you can see what every image contained.
I still can’t believe this little guy is one already and that I have two boys. I can’t say I ever imagined my life with two boys, but now, I can’t imagine my life without my two boys. 💙
Due to COVID-19 the graduating class of 2020 have not been able to experience the joys and celebration that come with this momentous life achievement.
However, just because you may not be able to walk up that stage in front of family and friends to personally receive your diploma doesn’t mean it’s not happening or that it’s less important. And it definitely should not go unnoticed.
Here’s a recent graduation announcement I worked on that celebrates a high school student’s accomplishment.
The quote on the vellum wrap around is from Michael Jordan:
“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.”
The idea and design behind this announcement was based on including the graduate’s photo, as well as incorporating the school colors.
It’s always a great idea to include corresponding note cards as a way for the graduate to send out handwritten notes.
Customized note cards with the graduate’s name make it that much more special.

I loved the idea of doing something similar to their son’s 1st birthday invite but with a princess/panda theme. Same, but different.
Stacy had found these adorable princess panda illustrations online so we incorporated them into the design and they were the inspiration behind the pattern I created on the backside of the invitations and thank you notes.
I love that they even brought back another caricature artist for Sofia’s party. So now we have another drawing of our growing family.
One of my favorite gifts to give graduates, especially college grads, is personalized notecards. In a world of emails and text messages, I still believe in the importance of a handwritten note. Whether it’s to thank a potential job interviewer for taking that time to meet or to thank your best friend for the thoughtful graduation gift. Taking the time to hand write a note, shows a great deal of gratitude that others will truly appreciate.
My cousin recently graduated from USC, so I did a custom design for him along with the typewritten notecards.
I decided to be a little playful with this set by including 3 different envelope colors, USC Trojan inspired colors: red, yellow, and white.
