baby jackson’s announcement

September 20th, 2011 by

The design was kept modern and simple for sweet baby Jackson’s announcements.  The primary challenge was to achieve the practicality of a photo card while keeping the overall format timeless. A blind pressed pattern was used to frame his newborn stats and we hope the layering of cotton paper and photo will serve as an instant keepsake. His photo was stitched on with gray thread and it was all packaged into a kraft envelope.  We just love how the texture of the pattern compliments that of the blanket he is wrapped in, Congratulations John & Jenny on your newest addition!!

stitched baby announcement

August 2nd, 2011 by

My sister-in-law, Stacey, thought it would be sweet to have flowers, for a soft natural theme for her baby girl’s announcement. From there we decided a hand-sketched, abstract set of flowers growing from the bottom of the page would be perfect. After a lot of sketching we scanned them in and waited for baby. Once baby Emeline arrived we entered her stats and got her lovely picture to stitch on for family and friends.
