Baby Girl Announcement and Stationery

My favorite designs are the ones I create for my family. When I found out I was pregnant with a girl, all I could see was pink and florals. I was excited to create Josephine’s stationery and announcement with that theme in mind.

Our beautiful Josephine Eleanor was born on August 11, 2017. She was named after my Grandmother and Great Grandmother. Two strong women that I admired.

Her baby photos strongly resemble her brother’s baby photos, I can’t tell them apart! Brother Ryan welcomed her with joy, his desire to love and care for her was intuitive.

The combination of her given name, and the energy I felt from her, I knew she was going to be a strong, grounded baby. I wanted to incorporate quotes on the stationery that expressed this feeling. “Though she be but little, she is fierce.” I like the juxtaposition of the soft, feminine colors and imagery, paired with bold words and meanings.

I wrote individual thank you messages on the notecards and inserted them into the announcement envelopes to make them more personal.

Christina is an odd combination of a perfectionist that insists on things happening organically, or according to nature. She wants to have all the control, yet leave life up to chance, and it is a concept that she admittedly constantly struggles with. Her love for her family puts a spark in her eye that only happens with movie effects. She has three best friends from childhood and does not see a need for more. A self proclaimed hermit, she laughs at the hypocrisy of her love for party planning. Christina’s message is the importance of slowing down, and reclaiming joy by surrounding yourself with people and things you love. "I am going to make everything around me beautiful," she says, "that will be my life."
