Birthday Luau Invitation

Happy first birthday to my sweet baby girl! I can't believe that she is already 1. Time does fly. A birthday luau was fitting for her party and here's a view of the invitation. This design could be adapted to other luau or tropical style events as well.

Ever since I can remember, I have loved to write. It's quite an obsession actually. My poor mother was unable to keep anything nice in her house when I was a child or it would end up with my name written all over it in multiple colors and hand writings. I made hundreds of lists, many of them the same list over and over just so I could write something on paper.

In order to feed my need to write, I've enrolled in a Copperplate Calligraphy class. I'm so excited! I've been wanting to take a calligraphy class for years and am finally finding the time to do it. I'll definitely share some samples of what I learn during the class come July. In the meantime, check out one of my favorites in the calligraphy world.

All of the following work was done by Betsey Dunlap.  I adore her work. She has such a fresh take on handwriting and I hope to one day be able to produce some equally wonderful and unique pieces!

Two new greeting cards hit the Claire Eye Design shop today! One is a brand new design and the other is taking an idea and giving it a new face.

This is the same wording as a card that was already in the shop, however I decided I was no longer happy with the old design. So I changed it! Here it is in the shop.

Baby Shower Invitation

Playing with new ideas, this invitation turned out to be one of my favorites. I did this one for a shower I gave to a friend. I always seem to let loose a bit more with design when I'm doing it for myself.

2010 has presented many fun opportunities for design. I've enjoyed the creativity involved in the work. One piece that I did for a wedding party was geared towards being a modern classy couples party. Here's a sample of the invitation:

Several more of my favorite designs I have just completed. I will be featuring those in the upcoming weeks!
