I'm here!

Hey there! I wanted to post a quick update to apologize for my absence on the blog. I am noticing that there are page views happening, but I have not been supplying reading material or eye candy. The truth is, for the past year, I have been so busy creating and selling at local events that there has been no time to post in detail... I feel that this is wonderful excuse. :) My intention is to get into the habit of posting more frequently, particularly when it comes to personalized custom orders. In the mean time, you can always see up-to-date posts on the facebook page - at

Thank you for stopping by. Until more is added, please enjoy the existing posts about older projects - it's fun to look back! Stay tuned!

Rhett's Graduation Party

Rhett's wife, Bailey, did some dedicated planning for his graduation from college this past month. She and I put our heads together for the invitations and came up with the custom design of her wishes. The answer? Custom-cut stamps, to give her the EXACT design she wanted! Here are some photos of the gorgeous invitations:

Bailey also wanted some fun banners for the party that would coordinate with the invitations:

Did you know that custom stamps are a possibility? At an additional cost, stamps can be ordered and custom-made to fit your exact wishes!

Congratulations, Rhett! On graduating - and on your loving wifey!

Until next time,

Max's Batman 6th Birthday Party

Max's mom, Kelly, invited June Cat Cards to create loads of goodies for his 6th birthday party. She had created a phenomenal inspiration board and color palette on Pinterest, which she shared with me. Take a look!

A fun banner for the entrance to the party:

Masks for all the boys and girls:

A card to Max from his parents - this is my favorite part! Check out the fun details like the heat embossed skyline and hand-cut bat signal:

A fun set of personalized thank you notes for max to send to his guests. Love the coordinating ka-pow washi tape seals for the envelopes!

Batman-themed food labels for the treats at the party!

Kelly also requested a bundle of fun 8.5"x11" signs for the party - for the front door, the balloon area, and for around the party, making it extra festive:

Here are some photos of the party in action. Take note of the fabulous handmade backdrop Kelly made herself! That's one devoted mama!

Kelly, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of Max's big day - and also for all your kind words and support of June Cat Cards. It is so, so appreciated!

Until next time!

Anna Grace - First Birthday Banners

Baby Anna Grace's mother Michelle recruited June Cat Cards to create custom banners for her first birthday back in February. She planned beautiful and clever 'Winter One-derland' theme for her party, with white, pink, light blue, and silver making up the color palette.

Michelle wanted the banner to be made up of snowflakes and it turned out just gorgeous! Here are a few photos of the process + the finished products:

What a way to celebrate her daughter's first birthday!

She has since shared with me that she has tucked the banners away in a keepsake box for Anna Grace to have when she is older. So thoughtful! I love it when I find other ladies just as sentimental as I am!

Thanks so much for letting me be included in Anna Grace's special milestone, Michelle!

Jessica's Book Club Invitations

Jessica had the NOVEL idea to start a local book club - that meets at a local bookstore! What's just as exciting, is that she chose my local small business to create handmade invitations to send to all the readers! She described an autumn-themed color palette with geometric shapes and hints of water color for her design.

Here's what I came up with:

I fell in love with these before I even finished the first one! Each invitation was watercolored by hand with soft grey strokes; then, the text was hand punched and adhered along with hand-cut itty bitty triangles. I love the combination of soft watercolor lines and the edgy feel of the triangles - and of course I love anything with that gorgeous gold glitter.

Bravo, Jessica, for encouraging us to remember to READ, and supporting local business! Thank you so much! How could anyone refuse to attend after getting that in the mail?

Do you have a fun, unique need for invitations or other paper goods? June Cat knows how to help! :)

Thanks for reading!

Custom Mason Jar Tags for Becky

June Cat Cards was a vendor at a local Garden Party & Art Festival over the weekend and it was such a beautiful setting! One of my favorite events of the past year so far.

While there, a customer inquired about the mason jar tags for sale and if they could be customized. (Of course they can!) We talked about the details of her sister's wedding and came up with these sweet customized tags for her reception!

Custom orders are so much fun - what bride could resist smiling when she saw these? Thanks, Becky!

Mason Jar Tags can be customized to fit color palettes of your choice and include various sentiments, like: congrats, thank you, hello, happy birthday, and even personalized with names! Each tag is hand-stamped, cut, colored, and stamped some more. Adorned with coordinating baker's twine.


Kate's Thank You Notes - and Book!

It's time for Throwback Thursday, June Cat Style! Every few Thursdays, I'll feature a custom order here from the past that's never been blogged about before!

The first Throwback Thursday spotlight is actually quite recent - within the last month - and is a very exciting one for all parties involved!

This was a set of 45 thank you notes with a vintage literary theme, for local bookshop owner and newly published author, Kate Glen!

The June Cat Stamp of Approval:

Kate is the author of an upcoming trilogy of books, the first of which is The Misadventures of Martin Hathaway, due out this Autumn.
