Fawnsberg Calligraphy Return Address Rubber Stamp

It’s been a little over a year since the ladies of Primele introduced their beautiful calligraphy return address stamps, and just a couple of months ago they premiered their new stationery line, Fawnsberg, at the National Stationery Show.  The return address stamps are now available in the Fawnsberg shop, and to celebrate the occasion the ladies have updated the stamp construction with a pretty red hardwood handle – and they’ve added some lovely new styles to the collection!

Jennifer + Blake’s Sunny Yellow and Blind Deboss Wedding Invitations

I spotted these sophisticated, yet modern, yellow wedding invitations on designer Sarah Rusin‘s blog, Ten Lines Pica.  Sarah created the invitation suite for an adorable couple, Jenni and Blake, and of course wanted the invitations to reflect their sunny personalities.  Sarah incorporated two beautiful fonts – one script and one serif – and a gorgeous blind (no-ink) pattern, and I absolutely love the resulting invitation design!

From SarahThe couple, Jenni and Blake, are adorable and sunny and I think the final invitation captured their spirit perfectly.  Jenni wanted them to be sophisticated and a bit traditional but with some personality.  I designed a pattern for a blind deboss to give them a little extra visual interest.  I used two of my favorite typefaces, Ministry by Ale Paul and Eames from House Industries.  They were printed onto 110# Crane cotton paper.  I used Baker’s twine to keep them together; I felt like it suited the style really well and was extremely budget-friendly.

{happy weekend!}

Happy Friday everyone!  I feel like I’ve spent most of this week in daydream land, making plans for all of the things that I want to do with my husband when he comes back home in just a few weeks.  Most of them happen to involve food, since my husband has been living on terrible cafeteria food for the last six months.  And I think there should be at least one cake waiting for him when he comes home, don’t you agree?  Anyway, right now I’m looking forward to hanging out with one of my favorite girls tonight, but in the meantime…
