Baby Shower Storybook Invitations

Storybook style invitations instantly take you back to memories from your childhood, or ones that you’ve created with your children.  This was definitely the case when Mommy Keisha decided that she wanted me to create custom invitations for her Vintage Winnie The Pooh themed baby shower.  She is a repeat client who always gives me creative control so I came up with this idea that was inspired by the Antique Winnie The Pooh storybooks I discovered while researching her theme. I’m sssoooo in love with how super cute they turned out and I couldn’t wait to share them with you!
The overall invitation was designed in a soft blue and chocolate brown color palette for a little boy.  The storybook style invitation was made from thick and sturdy card stock that was gold foil printed and double scored to look and feel like an actual book!  Don’t you love how the “title” is also printed on the spine of the book!  Inside of the book featured pages containing scenes from Winnie The Pooh books and the formal wording inviting guests to the shower.  The RSVP card was designed as library checkout card and was held in it’s own pocket inside of the book.  The finishing touches were the custom envelope liner and the coordinating thank you cards!

How To Create A Fully Branded Stationery Suite


Creating the overall brand, or “look”, for your wedding or event stationery is all about CONSISTENCY! The brand is established in the beginning as a way to define and set the tone for you event through the use of coordinating colors, fonts, graphics, paper and printing styles.

When I brand weddings and events I pull inspiration from the venue, decor and the personality and style of my clients. This helps me to carefully source the appropriate graphics and fonts that will represent the “look” they are going for. I use these key components throughout all of the stationery pieces in different ways. Everything should not be an identical match, but more so variations. Take a look at the featured designs below to see how a fully branded stationery suite was created.

A Creative Way to Show Off Those Fancy Engagement Photos



So you’ve taken some amazing engagement photos with your “to die for” photographer and now you’re wondering what to do with them. It is hard enough trying to decide which ones you want to print out to frame and hang in the house, let alone deciding on a photo for your save the dates. You definitely can’t pick JUST ONE picture to feature because you and your sweetie are just the cutest. Not to mention there are so many styles of save the dates these days (basic card, post card, magnet, etc) and quite frankly, they all sound wonderful.

If this is you, If you want to do more than a simple post card, how about sending a combination photo card and magnet to your guests? This featured design showcases an engagement photo on a double-sided 5×7 flat panel card. The backside does double duty by also holding a small magnet with a different photo and wording on it.

When choosing this design, you are able to combine tradition with modern, pleasing not only yourself but also guests of all ages. You start out with the front of the card being a classic shot of you and your boo.


Then you pick a bit more of an artistic shot that really shows your personality as a couple for the magnet. Make sure to include the important details on this one because it will be the one that people are looking at every time they open the fridge.


Super cute right?! Get creative and have fun showcasing both your photos and save the dates!
