Ann-Marie’s Modern Hand Lettered Bridal Shower Invitations

These creative invitations from Jaymee at JayAdores Design Co. for her friend’s upcoming bridal shower mix whimsical hand lettering with crisp modern design – and I couldn’t love them more! Working with a “gold and glitz” theme, Jaymee incorporated gold envelopes and a whole lot of sequins for extra sparkle. The perfect invitations for such a happy celebration!

From JaymeeMy good friend Ann-Marie is getting married in a few weeks, so my fellow bridesmaids and I threw her a shower to celebrate her upcoming nuptials! Once we decided on a gold and glitz theme for the shower, I got to work on creating invitations and paper goods to reflect that aesthetic.

I hand lettered “Ann-Marie” and “XOXO” using gouache to use on the invitations, the envelope liners, and the coasters. I had so much fun putting all of it together and added in sequins to each envelope for an extra [sparkly] something.

{happy weekend!}

What a week! In fact, it has been quite a busy summer – and between moving to a new house, trying to get settled, chasing after an energetic baby, and running a business I’ve felt like I haven’t had a moment to catch my breath in months. So I’m starting a new tradition for Oh So Beautiful Paper and taking a break the final week of August to enjoy these last few days of summer. We’ll be back with new posts on Tuesday, September 3 after Labor Day weekend! But in the meantime…

NYNOW Summer 2013, Part 3

NYNOW is a huge show, and the sheer range of products and types of products at the show can be pretty overwhelming. But it’s also one of the things that I love most about the show! I’m planning a separate post entirely focused on some of the jewelry and home decor exhibitors at the show, but today I thought I’d focus in on some of the folks with gorgeous accessories – from sparkly headbands to modern heirloom pieces to gorgeous leather tote bags!

I’m pretty sure the Ban.do booth (co-located with Kate Spade in Lifeguard Press) is the happiest spot in the entire show. There’s so much bright color and sparkle – and they even brought their own gold disco ball. It’s just impossible to leave without a smile on your face.

Stationery A-Z: Bright + Colorful Gift Wrap

Gift wrap isn’t just for the holidays, particularly when it’s this beautiful! We have a bunch of birthdays on the horizon, so I have gift wrap on the brain. I’m craving bright colors, pretty patterns, and a hint of sparkle. I’ve been dying to get my hands on some of Angela Liguori‘s metallic cotton ribbon ever since it debuted at the National Stationery Show in May, and I’m convinced it’s impossible to pick a favorite from the new collection of die cut gift tags from Hammerpress. Plus, how cute are the new gift wrap patterns from Sugar Paper, Inky Co. and Wild Ink Press? So so very good.
