That Was Then, This Is Now

This card was one of the first I ever printed. I don’t hate it, but I think in my early days I was so concerned with the technical aspects of printing that my designs seemed to lack joy.

I recently created a new hand-lettered design and I’m, loving it! In bright pink, they’re perfect for a bachelorette or birthday party—available here.

I also printed them on mini cards. I picked up these gorgeous seamed envelopes a while ago, but these are the first cards I’ve printed for them. Also available in my etsy shop!bubbly_3266

 

Time to Step Up Your Stationery Game

Guys, I hate to be the one to break it you, but there’s a pair of newborns out in the world totally showing you up in the stationery department. Several months ago, their mama-to-be got in touch about a custom order so she’d have plenty of paper for thank you notes before the babes were born. We chatted about options, I created a few designs… and then the communication stopped. One guess what she was busy doing!

We finalized the design a few weeks later and I printed these beauties in pink and blue ink with a blind emboss ampersand. Paired with snow white envelopes, they are as perfect as those new babies!

Ooh, baby, baby!

baby_congrats_4957I’m to the age where everyone around me seems to be having babies. A few weeks ago, I somehow I ended up taking charge of the décor for a friend’s baby shower (no idea how that happened…). I found the cutest marquis letters at Target, added in some Martha Stewart party decor and handmade bunting and flags. I also made a diaper cake—from scratch!

My etsy customers must be in the same life stage as I am, because recently I had a woman buy all the remaining “Holy Crap you made a tiny human” cards. At one of my wholesalers’ request, I reprinted them in pink and blue—for her shop and mine! I love these cards so much and I’m overjoyed to see them flying off the shelves.

holycrap_pink_blue_8725I finally got around to printing my icon congrats cards in light pink and blue as well—plus the gender-neutral yellow at the top of this post.

Don’t worry, though, we’ve got more than cards! Of course you should pick up an everlasting bouquet for the new mama, but what about a little art for when she gets home? I just love these ABC and 123 prints in a nursery!

Fill In the Blank

ombre_watercolor_5341While I’ve spent hundreds of hours over the years designing and producing custom invitation suites for weddings and parties, I realize not every event has the budget or timeline necessary for bespoke invites.

However, I believe more casual events deserve special stationery too, so I created the first several designs in a new line of fill-in invitations. Perfect for a dinner party, kids’ birthday, or casual shower, these flat letterpress invitations feature space to write in the details and are available in five designs—with more to come.

blue_spots_5589readymade_invite_ombre_watercolor_5346My two favorite designs (above) incorporate extra-special handmade elements. One features a hand-painted watercolor ombre background, while the other’s polka dots were carved by hand before being letterpress printed in baby blue ink. (And the latter has matching coasters available as well!)

These and more—bikes, daisies, lace—available in the shop!
