October Card Club

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

cotm_1016_7302I can’t beleive it’s October! If you thought the pace of my blog posts last month was something, you should have seen my whirlwind trip home. Anyway, enough about me! For this month’s Card Club collection, I pulled some of my favorite autumnal botanical cards, plus some gold and orange to make it feel like fall!

Believe it or not, next month’s collection will be the holiday delivery, which always comes with some fun extras, so sign up today! Purchase a subscription here.

June & July Card Club — and an update!

You guys, I have just been the worst blogger lately! A little bit of writer’s block, a little bit of being overbooked… a whole lot of super short or non-existent blog posts!

As you know (or if you don’t, scroll back through the blog, I’ve had some fun projects lately!), I have been super busy—wedding season is in full swing! In addition to the amazing paper flower project I posted about a few weeks ago, I’ve designed two non-letterpress save the dates for 2017 brides and hand-painted graphics for two more real wedding invitations, and three more for styled shoots! Check back to see all of those (and even more watercolor wedding invites!) in the coming weeks, and in the mean time, here’s a sneak peek of Julie’s invitations:

In addition to all this bridal goodness, I’ve also been designing new cards! You’ll have to wait till the holidays to see most of them, but keep an eye out for new birthday, thank you and sympathy cards in the mean time! A few of the latest and greatest designs are sure to be included in next month’s card club, so now is a great time to join! Here’s the link.

And of course, speaking of Card Club, I forgot to post July’s collection—again! Last month I was feeling the beach vibes, so I built the collection around shades of yellow, turquoise and sand.

COTM_716_4676This week, I’m feeling all pink all the time (just check out my instagram feed!), and mixing in some bright orange—plus bikes and balloons!—feels just right for summer! For a fun surprise, subscribers also received a 5″x7″ print of my watercolor bloom design from the Digital Prints section of my shop!

COTM_816_5125I absolutely love putting these collections together each month, so if you or someone you know loves getting mail, join the club today!

Holidaze

Well kids, it’s officially November. Believe me, I checked. Twice. I don’t know where summer or even fall went, but I do know that we’re working on the December issue of BRAVA, so that means I had better get my act together and get some holiday cards out!

Now available in the 622 press shop: several different colors of ornaments, a vintage “Fifth Day of Christmas” print and the PEACE tree card below. Enjoy and have a happy November!

Vintage Air Mail Save the Date by Beth Cote

Depending on what side of the aisle you favor, the proposed cuts to the U.S. Postal Service are either a heinous attack on an American institution or a necessary step to balance the national budget. All I know is that if I have to stand in line any longer, I’m switching to Fed Ex.

No matter where you fall on that issue, everyone likes to get mail. I know I’ve waxed semi-poetic about the virtues of card-sending before, but really, is there anything better than the surprise of a hand-written note? At least one person agrees with me: Stefanie of Newspaper Taxi is holding a contest for lovers of letters.
