Happy Hanukkah!

Last year I created this fun Hanukkah-themed cootie catcher. My youngest loved figuring out how to make it work. Today through Monday, December 10th, it’s just $1.00 in my Etsy shop. After purchasing you just download the file and print as many as you need. The file is sized to print on 8.5x11 paper and folding instructions are included… you know, in case it’s been while since you’ve folded one! If you live where A4 paper is the norm, shoot me an email and I’ll be happy to send you the file at that size.

Here are the “fortunes on the inside:”

·Keep your head high and watch birds soar, keep your head low and find four-leaf clovers.
·Let your heart make decisions, it does not get as confused as your head.
·Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become.
·Sun always shines after a downpour.
·You will see something today that will make your heart shine.
·Today is the day to show someone you care.
·Happiness is hidden everywhere, you just have to look for it.
·Your life will be healthy and harmonious.

Enjoy!!

Jackie & Michael's Baby Shower

Jackie and Michael had a super fun, camping-themed baby shower with Jackie's family and friends. But before that shower, they had one with Michael's family and friends at his mom's home. It was low key and really casual, and they didn't want to do any specific theme, but they still wanted to send an invitation. 

Here's what we created for the shindig:

It's a straightforward design that is similar to the Panda baby shower invitations, I created a while back. It's a fun invite that I can create with lots of different color combinations. I may add it to my Etsy shop later this month.  

That isn't their real address.

Halloween Cootie Catcher

Last year I created this Halloween-themed cootie catcher and I put it up on Mama Say What?! as a free download. It's also for sale in my Etsy shop for a few bucks, but if you're a follower of Mama Say What?!, then you know where you can get it for free. 

I wanted to go a little more colorful than the standard black and orange usually associated with Halloween, and I love to find excuses to use purple where I can.

My seven-year-old was happy to play with it so I could snap a few photos. He's asked if I can create one for his birthday that showcases all of his favorite things. I might just have to do that!

Happy Halloween!!

Custom Holiday Cards

I created holiday cards that are currently available in my Etsy shop. Each listing explains what can and cannot be customized and if there are options for colors. Let me know how you're planning to print your cards and I'll make sure to set up the final files to the correct printing specifications.

Clicking on an image will direct you to its corresponding Etsy listing.

This is one of my current favorites! One image and a Christmas greeting, choose either the green or blue colorway.


This is a two-sided design with a large image on the front. You can have it say either Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays (or some variation of those). The back has space for up to five images along with a letter to friends and family about your family's year. 


This design allows you to showcase five images and give your family and friends a top ten list of the highlights of your year. I can do either a green or blue faux chalkboard background and I have have the bottom say either Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas (or any variation of those). Please keep your "top ten" brief as space is limited.


This design is laid out to be sent in a #10 envelope. You can have the bottom greeting say anything you'd like and the space at the bottom of each polaroid photo can caption each image.


Six images and a non-Christmasy greeting. Great if you're like me and you struggle to get your cards into the mail before Christmas!

Share one image with a snowflake background and holiday lights for a border!

One family photo and a couple of giant snowflakes. I can customize the color of the flags at the top and bottom to correspond to colors that are in your photo or leave them as is. Let me know!

One family photo and sized to fit into a #10 envelope. You can choose between a red, green or blue swirly background too!

Simple design with a greeting you can customize. Choose either red, green or blue for the snowflake background.

Simple design that showcases one family photo. Two color options and it can say either Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or a variation of those.

I am working on new designs that I hope to be able to add to my shop within the next week or so. 

Shoot me an email if you're looking for something custom or you want to rework one of these designs. Also check out the custom cards I've created for clients. I can rework those designs to fit your needs as well. 

Panda Themed Baby Shower

I created this baby shower invitation for a client a while back and I loved it so much I decided to expand on it and add it to my Etsy shop as a whole downloadable package. Here's a link to the listing: Panda Baby Shower

All of the files are writable PDF files, so you as the customer can fill in the information as it applies to the baby shower you're hosting.

Here's what's included:

All of the text can be edited on the invitation except the top three lines. Because of the nature of writable PDF files, you cannot change the alignment, size, color or font. 

This package comes with two options when it comes to an invitation insert. One is simple with just registry information. The second includes verbiage for a diaper raffle AND registry information. You can print whichever one you'd like.

Water bottle label and a "wishes for baby" card.

Place cards can also be used as food labels for a buffet and napkin rings can also be wrapped around candles or vases for extra decoration.

Favor tags can be printed onto adhesive paper and made into stickers or they can be printed onto card stock with a hole punched at the top for a more traditional favor tag. Thank you cards are designed to be printed as folded cards that are blank on the inside.

The last item is this card that lets guests take a guess on baby's birthdate and other fun stats. This can be a fun keepsake for new parents.

I am planning to add this same baby shower package but with this aqua and lime green color scheme too, stay tuned!!

Melissa & Jeff's Baby Shower

I had the pleasure of creating a baby shower invitation for Melissa and Jeff with some really beautiful colors and fonts. Here's the invitation:

Folded tent cards acted as signs for the buffet. The same design could easily work for place cards too.

Favor tags adorned small mason jars filled with sugar scrub. Perfect for the sugar & spice theme.

Lastly, a front door sign welcomed guests to the party.
