Baby Shower Inserts

So, I'm finally back to start sharing some projects and the first I want to share is this set of inserts for a baby shower invitation. The invitations were ordered from another company and were printed in yellow and navy so I matched those colours. I love this idea (being a huge book lover myself!) and if baby showers were more popular in the UK I would totally steal it. 


I love the little heart vest (onesie) and think this motif would be so cute used on a birth announcement or thank you cards for baby gifts.


The cards are printed on my standard paper, Crane's Lettra, which really takes an impression beautifully. 


If you are looking for letterpress cards for your baby shower, please get in touch. I would be happy to work on a custom design or can happily modify this for your purposes. *I have blurred out some personal information from the cards

A Design a Day - Day 9

Today's design is inspired by a baby announcement I saw on Oh So Beautiful Paper a few months ago. The design, from Sideshow Press, has pennants with hand-lettering with baby's name and details. I took a couple of elements (hand lettering, knockout printing of the names) and designed this birth announcement with balloons.

I wanted to create a space for a picture, so I added a balloon that was big enough for a 2-inch, circular picture to be taped or glued to the announcement. I like the design, but for practical purposes I don't think I would try to print it without a bit of re-design because of the tight registration with the overlapping balloons. If you are interested in any of the designs that I have posted this month, please let me know and I would be happy to work with you on personalizing the design just for you!

A Design a Day - Days 7 and 8

So, I felt bad for slacking on my design on Friday, so to make up for it I have two designs today! The first design is a birth announcement with a bunting design.

The picture would not be letterpress printed, but I thought it would be cute to have a little space to attach a picture to the announcement, and I thought the texture from the diagonal lines would be a great background for the photo. The pictures could be printed on photo paper, cut out with a 2-inch circular paper punch and then tape or glue the picture in place. The second design is a birthday party invitation (for an adult) featuring some Chinese lanterns. This design could also be used for a wedding invitation suite, but I thought that I wanted to mix it up a bit since wedding invitations seem to be my default design.

I must be very inspired today because while writing this post I have come up with two additional designs I would like to work on, so I'm going to get to work before this creative bubble bursts. Cheers for now!

A design a day - Day 2

Today's design is for a child's party invitation. I've been thinking about making some fill-in invitations as a cheaper alternative to completely custom invitations, and this is my first prototype. I love the elephant! The printing for these could be quite difficult with some tight registration on the elephant and extremely thin text, so I'm not sure how practical they would be to produce, but it's a good starting point. Enjoy!
