Seasonal Stationery: Father’s Day Cards, Part 2

As promised, I’m back with a few more favorite Father’s Day cards! It can be a real challenge to find the perfect card for my dad and husband each year. Neither one of them fall into your typical Father’s Day card stereotypes of beer cans, fishing lures, or golf clubs, so instead I often look for a card with a simple greeting or sweet emotional sentiment. But those are often my favorite cards anyway, so it always works out!

Seasonal Stationery: Father’s Day Cards, Part 1

Each year, I always find myself scrambling to round up Father’s Day cards in the middle of NSS recaps. Despite my timing issues, Father’s Day is actually incredibly important to me. I was primarily raised by my father, who taught me pretty much everything I know about life, family, and even design, and I’m lucky to be married to an incredible man who also happens to be the most amazing father to our sweet little girl. So today I’m taking a quick break from recaps to bring you two posts full of awesome Father’s Day cards!

DIY Tutorial: Mother’s Day Recipe Box

Today, we’re using decoupage – one of the most basic skills in the DIY arsenal – to create a charming recipe box perfect for Mother’s Day (or to give as a lovely hostess gift). This project elevates a simple unfinished recipe box available from most any craft store with beautiful decorative paper and a little hardware. Fill it up with matching tabbed dividers and your favorite recipes, or think outside the box (no pun intended) and load it up with cherished photos. – Mandy Pellegrin of Fabric Paper Glue
