loveleigh’s latest: atlas’ baby shower.


we had a blast working on takia and jahri’s rum bottle save the dates and boarding pass invitations for their bahamian wedding a few years ago. so of course we jumped at the chance to work with them on their baby shower invitations for their son, atlas. the theme of the shower was a playful combination of all things maps and scrolls { to go with his amazing name } and oh! the places you’ll go, by dr. seuss! takia and jahri are partners with one hope wine so she wanted to incorporate their company’s mini glitter champagne bottles into the invitation. they mixed a custom baby blue glitter for their sweet little babe. we designed a custom invitation label for the glittery bottle, it was then placed in a cylindrical wooden bentwood box, filled with bright blue paper shred and fuzzy yellow pom poms and tied with the leather strap and finished with a paper luggage tag with atlas’ custom monogram. these were sent to guests in white shipping boxes complete with custom mailing labels.

in addition to the bottles, we designed a matching paper version. the invitation was a larger version of the label with a translucent map overlay. everything was bundled together with blue and white bakers twine with monogram luggage tag and sent to guests in bright blue envelopes with custom mailing labels. we even found vintage fox in socks postage stamps!!

we always love working with takia and jahri and wish them all the best as a new family of three!



happy it-finally-feels-like-fall weekend! i leave you this week with my absolute favorite photographs of me and my babies taken by my friend, alison conklin. earlier this week, we had a sweet little bump shoot at froehlich’s farm + garden center in furlong, pennsylvania. it was the most charming farm and market. . .we can’t wait to go back this weekend for their fall festival!! i will cherish these snapshots forever and ever!

mindy and chris welcomed their precious little poppy claire into this world in may. in addition to their new bundle of joy, they were also planning a cross country move to los angeles. talk about a life change!! so they decided to combine both announcements in a bright + cheery letterpress package. the letterpress birth announcement was printed in a fresh poppy red on a bright white double thick cotton paper stock. poppy’s adorable photo (shot by kevin monko) was attached with a patterned washi tape. the moving card was digitally printed and finished with the line say yes to new adventures. the cards were mailed out in a transparent vellum envelope filled with confetti and wrapped with a matching address label. this happy little package was inspired by this gorgeous hand lettered blanket, from how joyful, that mindy received as a gift. we are so excited to share this package, it makes us so happy. we wish this new little family the best of luck in la la land!!

we get so excited when couples come back to us asking us to design for more of life’s celebrations, especially when they’re having a baby! dara and her soon-to-be baby girl will be showered this weekend at terrain at styer’s in glen mills, pennsylvania. she came to us with a vision of a bohemian style baby shower invitation that included a watercolor/dip-dyed look and casual fonts. the invitation was paired with a bookmark size note to let guest know to bring books for the baby’s library. the pieces were placed inside a digitally addressed kraft envelope which was lined with a feminine floral watercolor pattern. we had way too much fun working on these and can’t wait to see pics of the special day!

pam and pat delivered holiday cards with a special announcement last year: the birth of their precious baby boy, ryan. the couple wished to share their exciting news while also sending holiday wishes, and they loved the idea of combining the two into one card, since their son was a precious gift last year. their traditional 5×7 formatted cards were created with the combo and featured personal pictures by erin joyce photography. with finalized details, the couple’s cards were then mailed to family and friends in metallic silver envelopes for a special touch. we are thrilled with the completion of this birth announcement, holiday card combo and congratulate pam and pat on the birth of their bundle of joy!

work wednesday: shannon’s baby shower.


shannon and matt celebrated the arrival of their first child this november at the gardenville hotel in pipersville, pennsylvania with friends and family. for their shower invitation, the couple loved the idea of white puffy clouds, the stork and a neutral color palette (since the baby’s gender will be a surprise!) the light gray envelopes were digitally printed and addressed to guests in a hand-written style font. we wish the couple lots of happiness during this special time and we can’t wait to meet their bundle of joy!

work wednesday: baby oliver.

a special package by the name of oliver jordan was delivered to the stricker family in april of last year! his elated parents wanted his birth announcement to reflect their love of traveling. we were inspired by vintage airmail for this piece, which featured the most adorable photo of oliver sporting a knit pilot’s hat. his patriotic red and blue letterpress announcement was wrapped in firecracker bakers twine. the final touch was a kraft luggage tag with passport style stamps, complete with a stamped custom illustration of the pennsylvania hospital where oliver was welcomed into the world. these happy little packages were sent in navy envelopes with a coordinating striped address label and a special delivery stamp. we hope oliver’s life has been full of many adventures already!
