work wednesday: dee’s holiday card + birth announcement.

we (dee + pat) loved the idea of sharing a bump shot (by alison conklin) on our holiday card this year since there were only a few months left before we got to meet our best gift ever. i kept the design and type simple so the main focus would be on our little-family-to-be.

after miss mila arrived we had another shoot (of course!) with alison. it was so difficult to choose the perfect image for her birth announcement! once the decision had been made, i worked with danica, from the butler’s pantry, to create hand-written artwork for her name. each card was mailed out in a kraft envelope and finished with a mailing label.

work wednesday: baby alperstein.

a sweet little birth announcement + thank you note for baby jonathan. jonathan’s proud parents wanted to incorporate their university of florida roots in some way. we did that with a friendly gator along with an orange, blue and green color palette. the envelopes were finished off with wrap-around address labels and custom postage stamps to match. welcome to the world jonathan!

happy things.

we’ve noticed lots of beautiful baby bumps out and about in the city recently! we are happy to see our brides come back to us for birth announcements and shower invites and thrilled for our newly pregnant friends. we would like to share some creative baby announcements and first birthday invites with all of you soon-to-be mothers out there.

work wednesday: reagan madonna.

we designed this birth announcement for one of our closest friends, kathryn and her husband dan. they welcomed little miss reagan into the world in a few months earlier than expected in april…she wasn’t due until june!
for kathryn’s shower gift, our group of friends gave her a gift certificate for one newborn photo shoot with one of our fave photographer’s alison conklin. we loved designing with kathryn’s soft palette of chocolate brown and light marigold and of course this beautiful photo of miss reagan madonna!
