Rachelle and Emily of Wiley Valentine recently celebrated their 10 year business anniversary – congrats ladies! To celebrate their anniversary, the ladies are launching a brand new commemorative greeting card collection at their upcoming holiday pop up shop: a year of cards! They also surprised their team with a sunset cruise in Newport Beach – and Rachelle is here to share all the details!
The set will come in a commemorative tote bag adorned with their 10 year anniversary logo and includes a years worth of greeting cards to cover all occasions. You’ll be able to pick up these year of cards sets at the Wiley Valentine pop-up shop on Wednesday, December 11th from 4pm – 8pm at their studio in Irvine, California. You’ll also be able to letterpress print your very own calendar at Czar Press, sip bubbly, and snack on sweet treats!
From Rachelle: We just celebrated our 10 year anniversary. I cannot believe it’s been 10 years of Wiley Valentine already! We had a great surprise celebration for our team, with a sunset cruise in Newport Beach. We surprised our team by telling them to arrive at a specified address. They were surprised with a boat decorated with our mint/silver/star theme. Star garlands, letterpress napkins, star and mint paper straws, and cups with silver and mint washi tape. We served a cheese and charcuterie platter and a chocolate hazelnut raspberry cake from Black Market Bakery served along side my favorite rosé.
Congrats again on your big anniversary Rachelle and Emily! Such a huge milestone!

I love it when creative friends join forces, which is exactly how Angela Liguori’s new Rotolino greetings collection came together! The collection features words calligraphed by artist Susy Pilgrim Waters, then letterpress in charcoal gray ink printed onto long strips of cotton paper by Albertine Press, and finally wrapped around hand dyed wooden spools and secured with red thread by Angela. Such a unique way to send love and wishes to a special person!
The collection currently features two designs: Love (with the words amore, dolcezza, per sempre insieme, ti amo, gioia, abbracci, baci, xoxo) and Holiday Greetings (with the words warm wishes, joy, gratitude, celebrate, best wishes, kindness, peace, season’t greetings, xoxox). Each spool measures 2″ by 1.25″ with strips of paper 7/8″ tall and 17″ long. The spools are packaged in kraft paper gift boxes.
p.s. Angela is celebrating the new collection with a giveaway on her blog! Check out the details right here.

It’s a huge understatement to say that I’m a fan of Liz from Linda & Harriett. I’ve admired her wonderful stationery for years, was thrilled to work with her on the invitations for the 2013 Paper Party this past spring, and I love her approach to the creative process. Liz has been quietly working on a new website for the past few months, and it’s finally live! And just in time for the holidays, with a fabulous 2014 calendar, screen printed gift tags, notepads, and more! My favorite item in the new shop? This wonderful seasonal note card box set with 16 total designs – four for each season!

The closer we get to the holidays, the more I crave all things glittery and sparkly. I think it’s a result of the shorter days and longer nights of late fall and winter! Anyway, I was thrilled when calligrapher Julie Song added these sparkly gold foil coasters and calligraphy art prints to her Etsy shop! As if those weren’t enough, she also has some fun prints, iphone cases, and pillowcases in her Society6 shop!
