150 Birth announcement and 30 Shower invites!

So a super sweet gal from our old church approached me about making her birth announcements and I lept at the chance! I had helped her make her weddng invites so I knew I had to make her announcements too! Then she asked for 150...at first I was a little scared, but then she knew exactly what she wanted and it was smooth sailing from there! I also happen to be close friends with her Photograper Dana over at Race Home Photography and worked closely with her to make sure the pictures were perfect! Dana even toned down the colors some so that they would match the pretty in pink colors of the cardstock I used...isn't she awesome! If you live in the area I highly recomend her for weddings, baby or any other occasion photo sessions!

So you wanna see the announcements? Okay okay here they are!

Isn't she just the cutest little baby? Her name is Brooklyn and the name of the font that I used is called Brook...how perfect is that!

Here is a close up of the birth announcements. I used the Cutie pie
designer paper to create the cards and no stamping...the shame! LOL
In this photo I wanted to show you how they opened. The card front itself is about 1 inch shorter on the front to allow the name and scripture to show through...isn't it too cute?

Bridal Shower Invites
My sister (whom I love dearly) is hosting a bridal shower fora friend of hers in May and asked me to make her some invites...the brides colors are black, white, and silver...sissy asked me to use some pink...and since pink is my fav color I was happy to oblidge! What do you think? I like the pretty in pink wiith the silver and white...very showerey (I don't think that's a real word! LOL)

Here is a close-up of the Bridal shower invites. I used the cuttlebug to emboss the backgrounds (thanks David for helping!) and I embossed the main images with silver embossing powder. I think they turned out very pretty if I do say so

Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE THESE! Oh my! The birth announcements are just gorgeous. You should really be proud!

And what wonderful shower invites! They are just perfect for the occasion!

I posted a card today that uses the same cuttlebug background and pinks. LOL! Maybe that is what I should use my card for... shower invites! (I couldn't figure out what to do with it!)
