Marked as Christ's Own Forever...

Who doesn't love a baby's Baptism!? Especially when you're the Godmother! (actually not THE Godmother, but A Godmother... Sharing Godparent duties is involved when you're a twin!)

These are some pictures of the Baptism of my beautiful Godson, James Owen Kracke. Owen's mother shocked me when she asked me to be a Godmother, AND to make the Baptism announcement! Below is the design I made...

This design includes a background of a Baptismal gown, with a vellum overlay and a sheer white ribbon. It also includes the verse at the bottom, "You are sealed by the Holy Spirit in Baptism and marked as Christ's own forever." One of my favorites, and one of my favorite days!

Little Birthdays...

Above is a birthday invitation that I designed for my beautiful little Lucy. I love that her mom took the invitation to the bakery to have a birthday cake designed to match the card! Hopefully I'll get a picture of that soon. Below the invitation is a fold over notecard that could be used with Lucy's name as a Thank You card!

Above is another birthday invitation I made for a sweet little girl named Morgan. It includes a green and white gingham bow tie. She had an Art Party... what a great idea! I also designed the Thank You card to match with Morgan's initial monogram. These fill-in Thank You cards are great for little ones who are just starting to write, or for those moms who have way too many Thank You's to write for their children's birthday!

This is a birthday invitation I made for Lucy's 5th birthday party... a gymnastics party! Lucy told me she wanted a pink and green invitation, so that's what I made for her. Needless to say, she loved it.

Check Mate!

This is one of my favorite designs for one of my absolute favorite families! When given the challenge to design a Christmas card and birth announcement in one, this is what I came up with. The finished card is 6 x 9 1/2, featuring a 5 x 5 photograph. Who can resist these precious boys!

I designed this card as a Christmas card and Change of Address combination, and I love the way it turned out! It also is a 6 x 9 1/2, featuring a 4 x 6 photograph. The address card is tied with a wraphia bow.

What's Old... Is New Again!

Old is IN! Vintage-inspired prints of birds, old lettering, and lace... a string of pearls from a wedding long ago... a vintage-inspired apron - these are the hottest things right now, and they were also beautiful long ago. Vintage-inspired prints and themes have inspired some of my designs, as well. I hope you enjoy them, and I hope they remind you of a "vintage" story of long ago!;

Dots, dots, dots!

I have decided to make some posts every now and then about current trends. Well, the Polka Dot trend is rampant! It is everywhere you look... baby bags, kids and adult clothing, bedding, and of course, STATIONARY! Above are some great fabrics I found that really display the design, and below are some of my designs that incorporate the theme. Enjoy!
