Baby Annoucements in Etsy Shop

So, I just posted 2 new things in my Etsy shop!  I'm really excited, I created these designs a while ago thinking about my new niece that's on the way (just about a month now!).  I'm hoping that this will be just the beginning of what I'll call 'Customizable, You Print Cards'.  Basically, the design is created and I list it for sale in my shop.  Then people can purchase the design, they then send me the information and pictures to make it customized for what they want!  Once I get the photos and text and make any other changes requested, I send the buyer a high-resolution image.  Then that person can go to their printer of choice (costco, snapfish, shutterfly, whomever!) and get their pieces printed. :)
So right now I have baby announcement cards, but in the future I hope to have Save the Date cards, Christmas cards, Party invitations, Return address labels, book plates and more!  If you think of anything you'd really like to see and potentially purchase, let me know. 
Here's the new items, thanks for reading!

Birthday Designs [Part 2]

Wow, its been a busy few weeks!  I've been wanting and wanting to get these pictures posted and am just now getting around to it.  As you know from my last Birthday Designs post, I created some graphics for one of my good friend's son's first birthday party!  It was such a fun project, and I think we came up with some awesome things!  She was kind enough to send me some great photos of the big day which I'm sharing with you here.
This banner was one of my favorite things and it turned out so great since they combined the letters I created with background paper and an amazing vine with leaves!  So jungle, it was amazing. 

Tag for the party favors

Smaller signs for the food (cutest names right?!)

Labels for the water bottles

Signs for different areas of the party

And lastly various designs for the cupcakes!  
I hope to do many many more of these wonderful birthday party themes (already have 1 on my schedule, a preview of that to come soon!) so if you know of someone or have one coming up for a child of yours, contact me and let's brainstorm and come up with some great decorations!  Also down the road I'm hoping to create general templates for party decorations like these and sell them in my Etsy shop. I hope this winter will be my chance to do that. [And...visit my Etsy shop if you haven't already!]
