You guys! Today is the big day! We’re off to meet with our agent for the closing, and after that we’ll officially be homeowners! And between the craziness of packing, some last minute shenanigans from the title company (ugh), and a million other things, I’m kind of amazed that we got through this week at all. We have just a couple more days of packing left, then we move in on Monday! Luckily my in-laws are coming down to help this weekend, followed by my dad early next week. Wish us luck with the move – we’ll definitely need it! But in the meantime…

How fun are these black and white invitations for a modern bridal shower? Andrea from Featherpress Design was inspired by the old “April showers” adage to use a vintage umbrella as the main focus in the design. Graphic envelope liners and polka dot mailing labels – both also in black and white – helped complete the look!
From Andrea: April showers bring May flowers. In this case, an April bridal shower makes for a fun black and white design that of course includes an umbrella! Regular umbrella art just wouldn’t do. I re-drew a photograph of a vintage black & white umbrella so only the most simple of shapes would show. Stephanie’s name was also redrawn from a script typeface.
These invitations definitely set the tone for Stephanie’s bridal shower. We wanted a playful yet modern look and the actual shower will be adorned in black and white decorations.
We added drama and sophistication with black and white chevron envelope liners. We also kept the costs down by digitally printing the invitations, address labels, and envelope liners all in black and white. The envelopes are from Paper Source and labels are Avery from OfficeMax.

The Winter 2013 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings comes out next week, and – my oh my – if the cover is any indication, this is going to be a seriously gorgeous issue! I know everyone is dying to see the details of a certain wedding featured in this issue, but today I have a special sneak peek of the stationery story to share with you!
For this issue, the editors have created their own stationery love story – what could be better?? The editors have included a timeline to show you how to incorporate stationery during every stage of your romance, from the calling cards you exchange on your first date to the moving announcements that mark the beginning of newlywed life. And of course, since this is Martha Stewart Weddings, there are also save the dates, engagement party invitations, bridal shower invitations, thank you notes, and more! The stationery story features ten great ideas by ten talented creative designers (and some of our favorites here at OSBP), including Paperfinger, Sugar Paper, Moglea, Sideshow Press, Linea Carta, and Duet Letterpress!
The full issue will be on newsstands on Monday (and is available as a digital edition for the iPad) – but in the meantime you can check out a little peek of the new issue here!

What. A. Week. While we weathered the storm pretty well here in DC, my thoughts have been with those in New York and New Jersey affected by Hurricane Sandy. The images and stories of the destruction are completely overwhelming and I know the road to recovery, much less the restoration of power, will be a long one. When I haven’t been completely glued to the news, somewhere between last weekend and today, my little Sophie suddenly stopped looking like a newborn and started looking like a real baby. She’s getting bigger each and every day, even though she’s still smaller at 7 weeks than some newborns, she’s paying closer attention to objects, and she’s smiling at us! The smiles just make my heart melt. This weekend we’re planning to visit our favorite flea market and relax at home, but in the meantime…

Today I’m thrilled to feature the bridal shower invitations for Bailey Amon of Antiquaria, created by Bailey’s business partner (and talented calligrapher) Emma James. You might recognize Bailey and Emma from their regular DIY tutorials here on OSBP, so it’s no surprise that these bridal shower invitations reflect their clever DIY sensibilities. Emma incorporated vintage illustrations and her beautiful hand lettering into the design, which was then accented with ribbons and rubber stamp details.
From Emma: Bailey’s wedding was in La Jolla, California and we held her shower on the morning of the wedding. We began with brunch at an adorable cafe called The Cottage and then walked back to her hotel suite for mimosas and presents.
For the shower invitations, I wanted to design something really special that would get her guests even more excited about coming to La Jolla. The invitation was hand lettered and printed with an awning striped background. Since Bailey loves hot air balloons I used a vintage illustration of one as the front of the enclosure/rsvp card.
The invitations were mailed in A7 box mailers in pool from Paper Source. I designed a logo for the outside of the box and had it made into a rubber stamp, which was used to emboss the logo on the front of the box.
Thanks Emma and Bailey!
