I’ve been on a cleaning and organizing kick lately. I’ve got one little corner of my studio to go and then my entire work space will be de-cluttered, de-stashed and all the dust bunnies and tiny spiders will be chased out of their homes.
Since printing up the new collection, my in-stock inventory is overflowing a bit, which really works out for you guys, because I’m having a spring cleaning sale! Through the end of May, all card orders of three or more get one additional card free! Choose the card you’d like by including a note to seller at check out, or I’ll just double up on one of the designs you’ve already chosen. Happy shopping!
A few weeks ago, my sister asked me to teach her how to make a few paper flowers. I gladly obliged and have been on a flower kick ever since! I’ve improved quite a lot since I first started making paper flowers, so I’ve been slowly working on updating my templates and photos in my etsy shop, as well as adding new blooms.
As my flowers become truer to life, I find I want to be more specific about which variety the paper bloom is modeled after, especially for poppies. The Icelandic and Oriental versions are so different, so now they’re available as separate options in my shop!
Oriental poppies are similar to my original design, with their black centers and stamen, but I’ve updated the petal texture and added another piece to their centers to create that signature starburst look. The biggest change to these beauties is that I now offer hand-colored petals, which really makes them come alive!
My new obsession is definitely the Icelandic variety! Their ruffled centers are crazy putzy, but the results are irresistibly beautiful. I made myself an entire bouquet to replace some older poppies I wasn’t a fan of any more, plus some extras… because I’m obsessed! Want to order a single bloom or a big bouquet?

I recently had the pleasure of printing three sets of custom bee stationery for an etsy customer. Printing this simple design in silver and gold ink imbued it with such elegance I just love how they turned out! Order bee flat notes here, or get in touch for a custom order!
Well you guys, I’ve been talking about it for months, but offset printed wedding invitations have finally hit my etsy shop! And since I’m traveling most of this month for weddings across the country, I thought this was the perfect time to launch them!
Since every couple has different stationery needs, I’ve structured the wedding section of my shop in such a way that you start with the invitation and then add on whatever enclosures and extras you’d like. The other great thing about that is that the invitations alone are really affordable—so you can have them customized for other events! Just get in touch.
I fell in love with these hand painted purple graphics from Create the Cut as soon as I saw them. Since they were part of a giveaway and quite a few designers have them, I wanted to make sure to create something unique than just placing them on the page, and these chic invites are the result!
And remember how I mentioned choosing which elements you need to make your wedding stationery suite complete? In addition to the RSVP and other enclosures, you can also add a coordinating save the date or menu for a cohesive look from start to finish.
Hello, my name is Kristin and I’m an art director. It’s been 14 months since my last photo shoot…
When I was working at the magazine, I coordinated/styled/directed a dozen or so shoots every month. At least one was a complex fashion shoot, consisting of days of scouting, planning and styling, a full day of shooting, several more days of choosing and editing photos and then designing a 4-10 page feature. And that was only my part in it: we also had a hair and makeup team, clothing stylist, photographer, interns and editorial team on hand to pull it all together. Sometimes these days were downright incredible—everyone involved was in a flow state where creativity abounds and beautiful results were almost effortless. Other times, not so much.
So, as rewarding as seeing your work in publication month after month can be, after sixty of them, I was ready for a little break. Until now.
Last weekend, I gathered a few friends—a dental assistant who moonlights as a model and an IT professional/talented self-taught photographer—for a shoot featuring my paper flowers. We headed to Horseshoe Beach for some boho bridal images, then down the road to The Reefs for an incredible sunset view.
I thought the shoot would be successful—Allison is gorgeous and moves effortlessly, Adi is more talented than he’ll ever admit and Bermuda scenery can’t be beat—but honestly, even I am blown away with the results. So without further adieu, here are just a few of my favorite shots. I’ll be unveiling the rest over the next few months, so check back!
