One of the things I've always enjoyed doing for myself and for friends, is designing party printables. At the suggestion of my husband, I've decided to share some of my work with you.
I'm not sure yet where I want to go with this so, I welcome your comments!
Here are some invitations I've designed this year. With an invitation my goal is to give give the recipient a sneak peak to the feel of the party.
Sunshine Birthday: For my daughter's first birthday this summer, the theme was Sunshine with the song "My Girl" by the Temptations as the theme song. After removing the label with the lyrics to the first verse of the song, guests uncovered a stash of lemonheads underneath their invitation. The invitation by itself was a party!
Butterfly Birthday: I designed this invitation for a courageous friend whose beautiful daughter miraculously fought for her life against all odds. To her parents, she is a butterfly: delicate, gentle and transformed. I tried to capture their feelings in the verse.
Big Boy Birthday: My son is turning 3 and although I am not a fan of cartoon themed birthdays, he is, and it's his party. His two requests were: Super Why! and cupcakes. Here is what I came up with for my little Super Boy.
I will post more details from this Super Why! Birthday in a couple of days.
Thanks for reading!
