southern living // july 2014

Back in April, the folks at Southern Living contacted us about designing stationery for their Editor-In-Chief, Lindsay Bierman. Since the issue showcases Lindsay’s house, we modified our popular custom sketch moving announcements for the feature. The July 2014 Southern Living issue is currently out, and we are absolutely thrilled to be included!

em’s fourth birthday invitations

Today, I am excited to share with you the invitations we designed + letterpress printed for our daughter’s fourth birthday party. Plus, I’m sharing a few other paper pieces from her celebration.

This year, we decided to throw a ballerina birthday bash for our little girl since she adores dancing.

We try to use her invitations as an opportunity to experiment with something new. Last year, we did a five color print job. This year, we lined the envelopes with custom letterpress printed paper.

We chose a soft pink Italian paper for her paper pieces and printed with black ink.

The silhouette is really Emily! I made it using an actual photo of her in fourth position. Fourth position for her fourth birthday. I love little details like this. So, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity.

Again, like previous years, we had wish cards for guests to write their wishes for Emily. It was fun to read them together after the party.

Lastly, the thank you cards featured her silhouette to continue the theme.

So, here they are. Em’s letterpress printed invitations + paper pieces for her ballerina birthday bash!
