These invitations were just lovely. My daughter squealed when they arrived. Received lots of compliments as well! Sammie was wonderful to work with and went out of her way to ship them to me in a timely manner. A+!
Too Many Invitations and Not Enough Parties
Jilly Bear Designs is filled with unique, handmade invitations for baby showers and birthdays. If you don’t want to stop with invitations, I’d be happy to help you with party decor. Here you can find coordinating party items such as banner, cupcake toppers, favor tags, and thank you cards. Let me help you make your party unique and one of a kind. Custom changes and personalization is always welcome.
I have three daughters. Two of those are twins, so that means each year I get to throw 2 birthday parties. That's it, just two. Don't get me wrong it's not the house cleaning, the wild children, and the mess afterwards that I love. It's designing the perfect invitation and matching decorations. It's the 10 minutes before the party when everything is set out and is finally - perfect. Since my husband nixed the idea of throwing a birthday party every month I decided to share my love of invitation and party design with anyone who stumbled upon my little shop.
Jilly Bear Designs is named after my youngest daughter, Jillian. Ever since she was tiny I've called her my Jilly Bear. My girls inspire my designs and ideas. My shop does carry a variety of cards for adults and holidays (Valentines and Halloween being my favorite), but most are invitations for baby showers and kids birthdays. I find these are the most fun for me to design because I get to see my own kids enjoy the shapes and colors of the design as well. I know if they like it other little kids will too.
Stop by and take a look around. If I don’t have the theme you’re looking for don't hesitate to ask. The design part is what I thrive on. I'd be happy to work something up for you. Whether it is for an adult or child, I will do my best to get your vision on paper to share with your guests.
I am a mother of three, wife, teacher and paper crafter. I enjoy unwinding at the end of the day with a pair of scissors and paper in hand.

I do not schedule your order on my calendar until payment has been made.

Texas residents will be charged sales tax.

There is no circumstance where an international package will be made by me and arrive to you in less an 2 weeks. Please keep this in mind when planning your party.

I also use Priority shipping boxes if the package is traveling Priority. Smaller first class items will arrive in padded envelopes
Refunds and Exchanges
If you would like to purchase a sample to see in person before purchasing the whole lot that can be done. I'll set up a listing for a single card at single card prices and will send it to you. After you receive it you can decide whether to place the additional order. Keep in mind this takes time, so plan accordingly. I do not place an order on my calendar until the order has been paid for.
If you feel your nonpersonalized item is not as described and would like a refund you have 7 days from the day you received it to contact me and explain why the product doesn't meet your expectations. I will accept returns that are in like new condition. I will refund the full purchase price. Shipping charges are your responsibility.
I will help you file insurance claims with any objects that are damaged or lost in shipping. If you didn't purchase insurance Priority items automatically come with up to $100.00 in insurance. Any additional coverage costs extra.
Additional policies and FAQs
There is a design fee of $15.00 for all custom designs. This covers the time and supplies I put into creating your new invitation. I will discuss with you what you want your cards to look like, and we will get a plan worked out together. After I create the sample card you will have 2 opportunities to fine tune the design. Additional changes beyond those two will be an additional $5.00 each. To help me get it right the first time please be as specific with what you want as possible.
If you are ordering 50 or more of the same design, I waive the custom design fee due to the high volume of your order.
Payment for all items are due before I start any work on your order. After we discuss what you are wanting I'll set up a custom listing for your order. After you complete checkout I'll get started on your custom design.
