Birth Announcement: Audrey

This is the last baby related post I will do for a while, I promise! Remember my first project, the baby shower invitations?  Well, I was lucky enough to design the birth announcement for Lauren as well.   Here’s Audrey!

Baby Audrey!

Baby Audrey!

Lauren had two photographs she really wanted to use so I put one on the back.

Birth Announcment: AvaLynn

Meet AvaLynn.  I created her birth announcement earlier this year.  The pink pops against the stark photo but doesn’t distract from the focal point – AvaLynn!  Glad her momma selected this design.

Love the flag so much, I added it to the back of the announcement.

Birth Announcement: Eilam

When I first started Designs by Chakrya, I thought I would be creating wedding invitations, but as you will see from the next few posts, the majority of my projects have been birth announcements.

Around the same time I was designing my first project, the baby shower invitations from last week, I found out an old friend was having her first baby!  And so began the oohing-and-awwing-over-baby-photos phase of the business.

This project was a great opportunity for me to research the type of paper and envelopes I wanted to use and look at some adorable photos of my friend’s baby.

Baby Eilam!

For those interested, projects are printed on 100lb paper and 32lb envelopes.  Translation: that’s some quality paper.

Inaugural Post

I finally have the website up; welcome to designbychakrya.com!  What’s more fitting for an inaugural post than to blog about my first project!

Back in December, my friend Shannon thought it would be a good idea to get me to design invitations for a baby shower she was co-hosting.  BOY, WAS SHE WRONG!  Just kidding, I had a blast designing it.

Voila, my very first project!  I had to take these photos with my camera phone because my DLSR is broken so the quality isn’t the greatest.

The theme of the baby shower was “books.”
