custom moving announcements

I love these moving announcements we just did for Delphine and her family.

How could you NOT smile opening up an envelope and seeing these two darling girls? I also loved the little VW bug graphic. Cuteness all around.

custom announcements

. . . . .

So fun! I have started doing custom announcements and am really enjoying it. These were for a friend’s parent’s 50th anniversary party earlier this summer. I forgot to keep a sample for myself, so she just sent me this one today. I love her writing and it was fun seeing the announcement again. Such great old pictures of her parents!

Thanks for sending, Colleen!

Look how cute these turned out! Shannon and I used the inspiration from Isaac McHale’s announcements and made a few adjustments for her daughter Caden’s birth announcements.

Shannon wanted 2 pieces – a Thank You and a Hello Announcement.

Here’s the Hello Announcement with red stripes on the back.

Here’s the first panel. The rest of the panels say “My Daddy Scott, Mommy Shannon, and Big Brother Colton are all thrilled with my arrival! xoxo”

I love the end result, and Shannon was so fun to work with!

Shannon just sent me this beautiful image of her holding her newborn girl. I just love it! Something about the black with the lovely blonde lil babe.

We’re using the photo for her daughter’s birth announcements. They’ll be similar in design to Joel McHale’s son Isaac’s announcements which you can see here and here.
