Sneak Peek: Martha Stewart Real Weddings Special Issue

The Real Weddings Special Issue of Martha Stewart Weddings just hit newsstands – and I’m so excited to share a sneak peek with all of you today! As per usual, I immediately flipped open my issue ready to pore over every stationery detail in the featured weddings. But this time, I was so pleasantly surprised to see a familiar face in the issue!

Julie Savage is a wedding planner in Annapolis, Maryland – just a hop skip and a jump from DC. Julie and her husband were married in Paris last fall, and I was so happy to see their dreamy destination wedding in the special issue, along with the beautiful invitations by Little Bit Heart and calligraphy by Laura Condouris!

And since I’m on the subject of Martha Stewart Weddings – have you already seen the Fall 2013 issue? I was thrilled to see this beautiful Maine wedding from my friend (and very talented photographer) Katie Stoops in the issue, along with some beautiful wedding stationery inspired by fall fashion trends!

Book Preview: All Things Paper

If you’re a longtime reader of Oh So Beautiful Paper, then you’re probably familiar with the beautiful work of paper filigree artist Ann Martin. I’ve had the pleasure of featuring some of Ann’s gorgeous quilled pieces over the years, and I was so happy to hear that Ann recently released her very first book, titled All Things Paper (yay Ann!). I was lucky enough to receive a review copy a few weeks ago and was super excited to see all the beautiful projects that Ann curated for her book!

All Things Paper Book Cover Book Preview: All Things Paper

All Things Paper features twenty unique paper DIY projects from respected paper craft artists, such as Benjamin John Coleman, Patricia Zapata, and of course Ann herself. Each project, from paper filigree earrings to drink coasters, contains easy-to-follow instructions and detailed process photos, along with a selection of templates. My favorite project? The pretty crepe paper lilac bouquet below. I can’t resist anything that combines paper and flowers!

Inspired by: Mythical Creatures

It all started with this Big Foot card from Blackbird Letterpress, then Banquet Workshop came out with this awesome print – and now I’m seeing mythical creatures everywhere! Particularly unicorns, which is never a bad thing. We could all use a few more unicorns in our lives.
